Why? We're still post-WFC
Well just from what you can tell from the images you have so far is it overly kibbly? I know Fembots usually have that issue and I hope she (and the certain wee woo girl she's remolded from) break the mold.
Fair. That would probably be a more timely moment to suggest it.
For the same reasons we've had distinct speculation threads for lines going back to Prime Wars; it's manageable and focused. If you're wanting to check on a leak, a rumour, or a theory you've got a reasonably self-contained area to search through.
We're always going to be post-WfC? If you're suggesting a single Generations speculation thread then I think that would become unmanageable relatively quickly.
I hope there is an Earth Hound in our future!
I know I've mentioned Breakdown a couple times in these threads, specifically in hoping for an updated Legacy Offroad so I can fronkensteen the new Legacy Breakdown's head onto his body. So that might be where the idea mutated into a TFP Breakdown, and if so, my apologies.
Hopefully they can also pull off a retool of Bombshell into a Beet-Pappil homage or RiD15 Glowstrike.
Ooo, a Knockout retooled from a Stunticon might lend himself to being customized back into a combiner limb to stay with Breakdown. (I'm obsessed with these two, I know.)
As I have no interest in the various masters or pretenders my Decepticon list is nearly complete
Cassettes: Buzzsaw (just a repaint of Laserbeak), Overkill, Slugfest, Squawktalk, Beastbox
Multi-Changers: Blitzwing, Octane, Sixshot
Insecticons: Shrapnel, Kickback, Bombshell, Barrage, Ransack, Venom, Chop Shop
Triggercons: Ruckus, Crankcase, Windsweeper
Firecons: Cindersaur, Sparkstalker, Flamefeather
Stunticons: Motormaster, Drag Strip, Dead End, Wildrider, Breakdown
Seacons: Overbite, Tentakil, (just need Hasbropulse to get them back in stock...)
Bold = Next Year
Additional Seekers are a bonus.
I saw on Twitter earlier that Elita is a new mold, not a reuse of the Netflix one or the Prime Arcee, so who knows??
Who would Hosehead be a retool of in your opinion?
I endorse your general point, but, jesus, man, do you really think these threads are manageable?
Awesome! Thanks for the reply! I think as long as he has the silly head he has, he's bulkhead for me!
kinda concerned about armada starscream now being retooled from something else. as for jhiaxus my guess is a retool of ss scourge
@Apollux Any idea of the Nightbeat mold?
Hmm, that makes it not sound like a BW Uprising Jetstorm since he's not exactly a core character, but I hope he'll still be a potential retool later on in the future. I really want to believe it's a new Jetfire because Armada Starscream's transformation and overall design would be so good for that with a few tweaks to the engineering, but I'll try not to get my hopes up too much.
For Knockout, it's okay if you don't really have an answer, I understand it'd be tricky for non-car people, but are there any cars you think his alt-mode looks like? Does it look more like a modern car or an 80s/90s or earlier one like a lot of the ER ones are?
Does he at least still have the fenders/headlights on his shoulders/chest? That and a good headsculpt (preferably with a nose, can you tell if the new TFP figures all have noses? ) are all I really need him to have.
That would be Dead End. Hm. They don't exactly share many robot mode features.
It is awesome for some of us. But I do wish there was budget for Hasbro to make Generations sub-lines for every major TF aesthetic.
Can folks help clarify a few things for me. I apologize if this has been covered, there's over a 100 pages if you add all the leak threads. Who are the following:
I'm assuming that if its $8.50 its a Studio Series Core Class figure (and not SS86 figure). Thanks for the helps!
Assuming Legacy Dead End transforms similarly to this toy, I could see them re-engineering the front end so that rather than flipping back to form the backpack, it splits in two and comes over his shoulders either side of his head, and then it'd be pretty close in robot mode. The vehicle mode already has similar proportions, but I assume they'll change the details to make it a different type of car.
I don’t have any answers myself, but looking at the toys I think you could get a half-decent Energon Roadblock from Hosehead (the Energon Inferno retool actually has a general resemblance to Hosehead anyway)
The cab & crane arm on Roadblock’s robot mode would be moved, but the vehicle modes are surprisingly similar. In the absence of something totally out the box like Mudflap or Pyro, I think these look rather similar.
Ravage is the Bumblebee ravage figure we've heard about for sure.
I assume the core Optimus would be a repack of the kingdom one, or possibly a different Optimus design in core class.
Starscream, could be a listing for the kingdom repack (like how the Sky-Byte listing was just for a Cyberverse refresh).
No idea on Starscream.
9.99 - Optimus should be a core class repack I believe
8.49 - Ravage should be the BB movie version
I just want confirmation for something, is slammer still wave 4? Surprised that out of everyone he’s the only one not on the market, gotten an image leak, or even listing (haven’t seen one tell me if I’m wrong) so what’s up with him?
Separate names with a comma.
