    Indeed, the leaks say that Retro Headmasters is going to be reissuing the Decepticon Targetmasters as well.

    Depending on what the next Generations line is, If there is a Kingdom Wave 5, I predict the next Generations won't be released till maybe Spring or Summer next year.

    Spring loaded gimmicks have pretty much been phased out for mainline toys now, I was really surprised to see that the arks ramp is spring loaded.

    Siege had 5 waves and Earthrise still released in quarter 1 of 2020, there's not much reason to think a line would get delayed till summer, especially with production getting back to some normalcy

    I'd still expect the next line to start Q1 2022. Wave 4 should be out by October, Wave 5 will likely see release around Christmas, then Wave 1 of the next line no later than March.

    Besides Blaster, I don't know what else is there to look forward to. You sure wave 4 in October and wave 5 in December is not too close to each other?

    Yup. My prediction is that Kingdom Wave 4 will arrive on shelves in October. Kingdom Wave 5 will arrive in January and the next line's Wave 1 will have some overlap with it. Hasbro might also compress the waves and Wave 5 will show up in December for the Xmas rush.

    I wonder what actual sales numbers look like for Hasbro because honestly, it feels like new waves of Kingdom get gobbled up quickly. If that's the case, then Wave 4 could show up in September and Wave 5 shows up in Nov/Dec. The whole reason a Wave 5 is getting produced is because Kingdom is really hot and my assumption is that Hasbro feels confident that they can push more product at a faster rate.

    I mean, I got the DFIB, but he's definitely bruised and missing a rib or two.

    I don't know what's in wave 5 other than Blaster or that I herd Deluxe wave 5 is just repacks. But if I could have one figure it would be the rumored Tarantulas. If I could have 2, let the second one be a surprise.

    Nope, especially considering the only new figure is supposedly Blaster. And I don't necessarily think wave 5 will hit saturation by Christmas, but I think it'll start hitting around that time

    Pretty much how I see it as well

    I just hope that the rumored Blaster is something like what we got during the final wave of Siege. We got the rumor of a Leader Astrotrain, then eventually he was revealed along with a surprise of Crosshairs and Spinister.

    That would be awesome. Move Tarantulus forward, maybe open some spots in Legacy, I hope. (Heart talking, not my head on that.)

    That's one figure I hope is in wave 5 if it's not all repack. I had hopes for a second figure, but I'm not going to say who because I want to remain anonymous.

    IIRC the current rumors are reissues of the Decepticon Targetmasters, Jumpstarters, and Monsterbots.

    Don’t forget Soundwave and Shockwave from Bumblebee. Those prologue autobots will sell. Paramount has got two more Transformers movies in the works. an animated prequel movie and another live action project that just signed on a director. Honestly they can also rerelease or retool older figures in the line. They have plenty of options.

    I think it’ll be a while before we see another Devastator. Hasbro just rereleased Combiner Wars Devy and Takara rereleased Unite Warriors Devy. I think they might opt out of doing a titan and do individual voyager and leader class figures for better individual figures. Those take up a few spots.

    Uhhhhhhhh- I honestly don't know if I will any time soon. Ask me again when the 2nd part of the trilogy hits.
    I have no clue but I hope they do.
