    I'm 100% down with perceptor. Tbh I'm having a blast with the headmaster gimmick so, no complaints on that front from me. And with how TR is somewhat faithful to G1 designs ,within reason of course, I could see Kup being a very G1 accurate truck along with perceptor being a microscope

    Well now we know what we'll be seeing at nycc. While none of these are staggeringly exciting to me I am interested to see the new kup, preceptor and jumpstarter moulds.

    I hope there's a Twin Twist to go with Topspin.

    Kup will be a must, probably Perceptor too. As long as Krok looks good I can see me replacing the Club one.

    The single heads.........annoying/sad that you just know Hasbro will leave them at that.

    Kinda bummed that Repugnus is a Titan Master, same way I'm bummed about the decepticon Headmaster Jr's all being TMs too.

    But some nice confirmations there. I like Gen Kup & RTS Perceptor, but keen to see the new versions.

    Hasbro - please give us a TM Mainframe that we can jam on perceptors body.

    Interesting. Glad to see the obscure TF's getting some love, even those super rare Japanese Headmasters.

    Yay, Quake! I'm sure they'll make it work, but the Hardhead mold doesn't strike me as being perfect, just good.

    Perceptor as a new mold is really nice to hear, I never saw the RTS one and the Japanese one was always (IMHO) absurdly priced. Plus I didn't think it was the best mold anyway. I'd be leaning towards a mobile vehicle in terms of alt mode preference rather then a straight microscope. A military communications vehicle, a treaded exploration vehicle (like the ones that explore the arctic), but whatever, as long as it's a solid mold, I'll probably be happy with it. I'd also love to see a Reflector or the like out of it.

    Krok seems like the only "lazy" choice and even then it's a figure that hasn't gotten any mainstream love.

    Mostly I'm glad we're not getting the '84 cast entirely over yet again.

    I'll await and see what TakaraTomy puts out for their Transformers Legends line. But even then, Shuffler is a must since he might become my favorite Master Warrior. :)

    Not surprised after what they did to Squeezeplay, who is my favorite obscure character. Repugnus is my second. Guess they'll reveal a Titan Master Slapdash next.

    G1 Preceptor had a laser tank mode. I still think he should be a Voyager. I'm getting him and Kup, regardless.

    Been wondering for ages what the Skullsmasher redeco would be, and like an idiot I didn't even consider Krok. It's kinda obvious now. Ah well. MORE ACTION MASTERS PLEASE.

    So:
    • Krok: Skullsmasher redeco
    • Getaway: Chromedome redeco (but we knew this already)
    • Quake: Hardhead redeco (I'd already been thinking this, now more convinced than ever)
    • Topspin: probably a Triggerhappy redeco (though going from dark blue to light blue isn't that big a difference. But it does explain why there's no Twintwist to go with it)
    • Perceptor: New mould? (Can't see what could be redeco'd into Percy. Almost certainly a car/van rather than microscope, as a deluxe-sized microscope would be a bit too small. Still!)
    • Kup: New mould? (Or possibly just the redeco for Percy. I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest this will look a LOT like the cartoon model, weird nonsensical alt mode and all)

    The raging fury of everyone wanting a Twintwist to go with Topspin will be fun to watch in a schadenfreude kinda way, especially if Twintwist ends up as a convention exclusive (which my money is on).

    Quake is a tank, as in full turret tank. Not a futuristic artillery-tank. So I don't know if that is wise. Usually they do make a proper tank when they can because they can re-use it a lot. Like for megatron, warpath, blitzwing, brawl. So Quake fits in that catagory not with Hardhead. But hey I can be wrong and we get a gray/black/purple highlighted Hardhead-Quake.
    Krok is really a, I don't care character.

    They'd all be Voyagers probably... Seeing how they're Triple Changers

    There are some examples of moulds that don't get reused these days. But they're incredibly rare. Hardhead's not going to be such a huge selller that it can justify development costs without a reuse. There WILL be a redeco or remould, and Quake's a prime candidate. It's all speculation obv, but super-likely.
