    While there is speculation (based on the Action Master design) that Krok turned into a space ship, I don't think he was ever seen to transform in any medium whatsoever in the 20th century.

    (He did appear a couple of times in the final issues of the Marvel Comics, but always in robot mode)

    I might repurpose TAV Roadblock's TM partner with Quake as Tiptop. That way, he at least has one of his Targetmasters and can try to fit in with the other Thunder Mayhem Junior Targetmasters.

    Quake and Topspin both sound promising (even if Quake will likely lose one of his -Master partners to fit in with the Headmaster theme of TR), while I've been planning for Getaway/Breakaway since his reveal.

    Shuffler also will likely be fun, along with Lione in the wave before him. But Generations Sgt. Kup and RTS Perceptor both work fine for my purposes (as long as the sculpt satisfies what I'm looking for in character representation, I'm good on most characters).

    Curious about Top Spin... Trigger Happy and Highbrow have similar colors, so if it's a repaint....

    As RTS Perceptor to me is a pain in a butt to transform as well as the robot mode have some issues I wouldn't mind picking up the TR especially if he has none of the issues the RTS version had.

    Real talk - Perceptor is going to be a Hardhead retool. I don't see him getting a unique mold.

    I haven't read through the thread yet, but that'd suck. I'd much rather Gutcruncher to take the hit of third tool. A tenuous connection of shoulder feature and treads does not make a Perceptor.

    ^ Don't worry, the rumor mill (thats been 100% accurate) says it will be a new mold. The only known retool of Hardhead so far is Quake.

    It looks like Hotrod shares the same transformation too.

    Cool, thanks. I'm all caught up now. Seemingly it's become a bit of a trend since Combiner Wars for some to throw around 'fun' speculation as absolute certainty. It can be confusing.

    The 'podcast insider' bit was most likely based on the same Hunter leak that dropped all the images late last year, so I don't doubt it's legitimacy. However, things are subject to change, as always.

    Well, all those Deluxes were among the Transmissions Podcast leaks back from April 2016. The 2 Titan Masters are not among their rumors though.

    Blaster and Takara Soundwave fit the bill and add ankle tilts for JUSTICE!

    I just realized that with a Titans Return Perceptor there is an easy customizing option. Trent Troop released an adapter on Shapeways that let's you put a Titan Master face on a Combiner Wars Ironhide mold... which would be a great match for Perceptor! COMBINER PERCEPTOR!

    I'm glad the Monsterbots are getting updates. Just hope that Grotusque is deluxe and Not a Titan Master.

    So......
    Are we 110% sure that Grotusqe is only a Titan Master? Because it's really a major bummer.

    Even though I'd rather all the Monsterbots got Deluxe figures, still looking forward to these releases.
