    So, I suppose this means that rumoured new Soundwave is actually coming.

    Still, I really hope that he's not a combiner since I would prefer a really well-done new Soundwave in the Generations line (The FoC version was good but I would prefer one with a more classic feel).

    Yeah, well I'm passing on that Hotrod repaint anyway. Since I still have the Deluxe Classics version there's really no need for it.

    That's not to say that I wouldn't prefer Wheelie in a new mold. With Hasbro it's just not that likely.

    In IDW, they turn into motorcycles. Wonder if it's a Legends Groove with hopefully a little remolding. Assuming they go that route. Would prefer an all new mold though.

    Anyone else think Wheelie was the worst transformer character ever?

    Right, forgot to comment about Wheelie.

    He better receive his own mould because none of the current ones would really fit his design.

    hot rod being a legends figure is what feels wrong. wheelie is supposed to be small.

    everyone wants diversity in the fandom all the time but when we have a cool unique character like wheelie everyone wants to hate on him. wtf?

    I wanted Hot Rod to go with my Metroplex display. Between Iron Factory and DX9 we're getting a great mix of seasons 1-2 and s3 characters now.

    The Hockey pucks that came with FOC Soundwave and Blaster were horrible. Hasbro has got to know this. So if they're making up for them then cool. But if they're still trying to cash in on CW with more crappy gimmicks then once again I'll pass.

    Well put me in the camp that was hoping we'd get listings of the remaining minibots first. Still I'm not one to say no to legends scaled figures. So the more the merrier.

    Not me.
    I do think he is annoying in the Headmasters cartoon but besides that I don't mind him and actually kind of like him even. He took out a sweep in Five Faces of Darkness dammit! Also he is awesome in his spotlight comic.

    I like the GDO version but it's too big and powerful looking to integrate into a Generations setup. The legends is cool but this 'bigger, better articulated, halfway to scout' legends size class seems perfect for him. Great news.

    All hail Wheelie.

    Oh this just continues to get better and better. Bless You Based Mr. Chaos.

    Really? I had no idea.

    Because Beachcomber is a dirty stinking hippie while Wheelie was in the 86 movies and has a role in the IDW comics.

    I'll be damn shocked if they aren't retools from Groove.

    Oh man....so many opportunities.

    Oh yeah I forgot about Gnaw and Brawn. :lol 

    No.

    Rumble & Frenzy = Offroad redecos.

    Laserbeak & Buzzsaw = new mold

    Ravage = new mold

    Then comes the Blaster redeco of Soundwave. Ravage becomes Steeljaw. Rumble & Frenzy become Eject and Rewind.

    Ramhorn = new mold

    This all leads to Predaking...

    Ramhorn becomes Headstrong.
    Ravage becomes Rampage.
    Laserbeak becomes Divebomb.

    Razorclaw & Tantrum = new molds

    NEVAH, they should make Predaking's limbs all voyager size and Razor Claw leader size so Predaking is still the biggest combiner.

    OffRoad??? Huh??
    Your post was intended to be sarcastic hopefully......

    A legends based Predaking would be a Tiny Predaking. Lmao!

    You do know that these listings are for Legends class figures right?
    So they are going to be that size, which rules out the possibility of them being deluxes.

    And Hubcap.

    And Bumper.

    And Glyph and Tap-Out.

    Pipes has a listing at least... but so did Brawn.
