    There WILL BE a third bike. TFormers coverage confirms she's in the works, her name is Flare-Up. But she won't combine. Most likely, she'll be a repaint of Chromia with a new head.

    Lack of Constructicons annoys me too. However, maybe it's due to Hasbro's policies - they don't want to flood the aisles with construction vehicle TFs (so far we have Demolishor, Dirt Boss, Rampage, Mixmaster, Long Haul, Mixmaster G1 redeco) - maybe they'll wait until next year to relase the rest of them.

    I really hope fan demands will work here, just as they worked for a better Leader Prime and Voyager SS.

    Also, do you know what'd rock?

    Human Alliance Bonecrusher... With, umm, nobody, because he hates being packaged with puny humans. :)

    Is skystalker based on a real jet? He and Mindwipe would make a cool team!

    definitely a deluxe remold. But why can't they kept in the deluxe class just like what they did with Prowl?

    That'd be shitty. Especially as the 3rd bike resembles Arcee more. And a new head wouldn't work for me as that's the feature that is identical on the three bots.

    Where? All I see Hasbro saying about Overload is that they left his vehicle mode out of Supreme Devastator for obvious reasons.

    Flareup is still getting a toy to round out the Arcee trio, even though we haven't seen her yet. No reason a Constructicon wouldn't be in their plans. Hell, they obviously weren't even ready to show ROTF Screamer.

    Right, but all Prowl had was a little sidecar. Remove the traffic light from the first one and you've got plenty of room to fit it in Deluxe packaging. I honestly can't see Wingblade OP fitting well into Deluxe packaging. Especially if the armor is supposed to fit on the original Voyager figure.

    And you know, the more I look at Scattorshot, the more I like him. I'm probably going to add him to my must-buy list as time goes on.

    Some brilliant goodness here. Love pretty much everything here.

    Bludgeon and Mindwipe!! Amazing! Now all we need is Bugly. I really hope Bludgeon can hold that sword with both hands.

    The ROTF line has been great for Deluxe Autobot cars. Sold on Ratchet on sight, I always found something a bit off about the Voyager version. I hope He's tall.

    I can't figure out why everyone's so excited about Mindwipe... He doesn't resemble in the slightest the original character. Is it just because of the name? I'd be more excited if he was like Bludgeon and resembled his G1 form so he'd work with Classics Universe....

    Taking the name away, sure, it's a cool looking toy...

    I'm wondering if they didn't show him because of the leaked video of him from Botcon.
