    Yes, Still missing the cons, right now, it looks like this:

    Wave one:
    Autobot Optimus Prime
    Autobot Bumblebee
    Decepticon Megatron
    Decepticon Shockwave

    Wave two:
    Autobot Hot Rod
    Autobot Grimlock
    Decepticon ???
    Decepticon ???

    My best guess is Soundwave and Starscream?

    On the figures, Hell yes! I'll by this one! I am LOVIN Hastak with the new focus on obscure Q-Z-listers. With that being said...

    Flame, Thunderwing, Octopunch, and Doubledealer when?

    I\'m more interested in that deluxe Grimlock, man that looks good! It\'s great RackNRuin is getting an official figure but it\'s too bad it\'s ultra class. Hopefully they\'ll get more figures in the future especially in the deluxe line. I\'d love to see them make the jump to Siege as well.

    Would likely be the case, I mean Starscream is essentially the go to, and have some pre-tooled parts for the seekers, so that's important to know.

    But yeah, the second con' could be anyone. Soundwave, Shockwave, They could even do Shadow Striker as the second con in the Second Wave.

    Well, we've gotta make sure we see more of the wreckers... Eh, i would like to see that.

    Shockwave is wave 1.

    I think you have to roll the dice on Shadowstriker, Soundwave, Slipstream, Or thundercracker. Those have been all the recurring cons from both seasons.

    It's good to see the character getting a figure, but if it's not one of the better made, better articulated ones that are supposed to be coming out, I'll pass. I like Cyberverse a lot - it's a really fun show despite some flaws - but the toys I've seen seem to be pretty sucky. I'm hopeful that this upcoming deluxe class will be something worth buying.

    I've always disliked the original Rack-n'-Ruin design. It's clunky, with the two full bodies connected at the arm, the color is drab and uninteresting, and the head design is bland.

    This is a big improvement on all those counts. I far prefer the idea of a two-headed robot to a two-bodied one, the faces have more character, and the color is lighter and more vivid (though it still could have used a bit more of a highlight color in there). Good overall redesign, I think.

    Seems very much inspired by Rock Lord Sticks-n'-Stones, which seems very fitting and which I can full get behind.

    P.S. I know everyone probably was already aware of this character in Cyberverse, and I'm just catching up late. But I haven't gotten around to watching Cyberverse yet, so this is the first I've seen of him.

    Cyberverse is improving greatly. I tried to keep away ,but Gnaw happened. Now theyre adding knees and elbows with fun combiner gimmicks.
    Plus the show has so much character it makes me want to own them.

    So Bludgeon, Repugnus, and Whirl are Warriors.

    Bummed on DLX Grim because I wanted him to be held off in exchange for a CV DLX Wheeljack

    Hopefully R&R gets a proper Generations styled release sometime soon, but until then I'll happily support this toy of him.

    I like it. I was thinking armored car more than tank, but its fine.
    It's a wide figure, so hopefully it won't be voyager tall and will scale well enough with Deluxes.

    If we get a generations Rack&Ruin, i actually hope they do him the same way they did Reflector, two identical figures (a single two release you need multiple of) that can combine its just a smarter way to do it if we want a quality Rack&Ruin that way its not a voyager class budget split between two deluxes, we just get one very nice proper deluxe you gotta get two of.

    I think weaponiser would work better because rack and ruin aren’t identical and with a weaponiser you have more play options other than just splitting them apart.

    I wish they would use other characters more often. They are toys for the same show, you don't need an Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron, Shockwave in every subline.

    Very surprised Windblade isn't in wave 2. She's more of a main character in Cyberverse than Hot Rod or Grimlock
