    Maybe Battlemasters is the equivalent to Targetmasters just as Titan Masters were the equivalent to Headmasters.

    I really hope that the Masterpiece figure from ROTF is Sideswipe but I also want ROTF Megatron. Hasbro, can we get both?

    Good points! Still hoping that the Targetmaster characters will be included somehow.

    That will be interesting, I know that Ironhide, Starscream (Rotf) and Bonecrusher will bring in this year.  I hope that Studio Series will bring, Sentinel Prime, Shockwave, Soundwave (DOTM) Sideswipe, and I bet Strafe and Slug will be a voyager.

    Micromasters is interesting. One thing is, which characters will they do? The original micromasters are pretty perfect the way they are, one of the rare times i going to say we need original characters.

    Saying that doubt Micromasters will come in patrol packs of 4. So in the entire line we might only get a total of 10. :lol 

    Saying that maybe we will get patrols and the pricepoint will replace legends class, and battlmasters be the new primemaster and titan master pricepoint...

    Well whatever, pleased they are doing them.

    The thing is they aren't even blind BAGS they're blind BOXES! So you can't feel them and it's pure guess, not that it would matter for me anyway since we don't get transformers here in Israel>_> (at least we have Wei Jiang AND Tobots :D ).

    If the new Micromasters won't be small as the original ones, I'll be disappointed:( . I have a bad feeling they would be more like legends class which mean they would be bigger than they should and they would be hollow.
    As for the Battlemastres I think they gonna be like actionmasters titanmasters which I wouldn't mind:p . We also need playsets, small, affordable awesome playsets!

    I do want Targermasters. But what if BattleMasters are just BattleBeasts. Yes they probably wont be, but they should be.

    Oh and is Micromasters taking over the legends for the year or 2?

    And lead to a full line of Beast Wars toys for Generations!!!!


    Battle Beasts should be relegated to the blind bag bins, honestly.

    I'd only be slightly miffed that the Battle Beasts would be in blind bags, but then I'd just buy a box and get them all :p

    All perfect choices! I’m more keen on ratchet since they have yet to do him justice. The best we got was the HDTD deluxe from 2009. The SS has too much backpack to be viable.

    My elder brother owns 8~10 of them, unfortunately most of them are loose and/or broken. If the new toyline would be similar enough to the original one, it would be amazing! The original ones were great even for their time and even for our time, hence they don't need to do much to update and improve them.

    Those little minicon dudes that used to come with the Legends class were damn close to Micromaster size and complexity. Eliminate the usually dumb looking weapon mode and you'd have instant Micromasters.

    I honestly cannot get behind a blind bag idea in the main figure line. If you’re going completist on this, it’s going to make it very hard to find everything. I’ve been cutting down my personal buying strategy to strictly G1 characters so I might not feel like I need to buy these, but I normally get sucked up in the excitement of a new line. I guess we’ll see what happens. I just kind of wish blind bags weren’t something they were doing.

    If the toyline after WFC is Beast Wars, then any new Battle Beasts would go there, and they would be renamed Beast Masters.

    Is mpm Ironhide due to release 2018? If not then he's probably the tftm release in 2019 and we're speculating about nothing
