    Prediction: if we ever get Earth Hound, people will complain he's too similar to Siege and wonder why they bothered making a new one. Just like with Sideswipe and Mirage.

    Sparkless Seeker, he's got the right colors and is even a zombie

    @leakers, past and present

    Any hints of more blast effects about in next year's lineup? I haven't seem them mentioned, and I'm kinda worried they're being phased out.

    Who cares, I'll do with their opinions what I did with the others
    wipe my butt with them

    Plus Hound was of the 3, I feel, the most unlike his G1 cartoon appearance. He in no way shape or form looks like an 80's vehicle. Hopefully he'll be some kind of exclusive in 2022

    We are getting an earth mode hound tho (it's just AOE hound pretending to be G1 hound and calling himself Bulkhead).

    That would be cool, but I don't have the physical space to armybuild. Also, I suppose I'd rather spend money on other unique figures versus buying multiples of a single one. It's why I'm uncertain if I'll get the SS Sweep since I already have Scourge. I suppose some perks of getting the upcoming predicted Insecticons over the current ones are probably a more unified color scheme and appearance. I don't know though, if they warrant Deluxe size and pricing, personally. They seem more fitting of Legends size.

    Bulkhead would be retooled from Optimus, and I don't even know how they'd accomplish that and have it look good for either character. They don't really look very similar, IMO.

    I still think we will get him but as an exclusive. Amazon probably. It seems to be the way that Hasbro is selling the remolded Earth mode cars.

    Believe me, if I had all of them I would. I can do 3 weaponizers, 5 fossilizers and however many energon monsters I buy.

    Also, totally predicting that class of toys will be "Energizers"... mark my words, unless I turn out to be wrong, then don't :p

    I wonder if they will go with an IDW aesthetic. AFAIK, there was an attempt to make transplants of characters like Knock Out fit in there by changing up the aesthetic somewhat.

    It was originally Straxus, but then he got replaced by TMII Megatron, so that became what I was most excited for. But now I hear Laser Optimus Prime is coming and now I am absolutely losing my shit over that!

    …well it’d be a Buzz Saw at least.

    okay to be honest I wish they’d make a core/legends size Waspinator figure that we could army build with. Though I’d like it if they repainted it a bunch of times. Like army building core/legends/basic size figures is easy and cheap compared to army building deluxe or voyager size figures.

    Gotta say the rest of the BW season one cast especially inferno, Knockout, Crankcase, Soundwave, armada starscream, Blitzwing, Elita 1, The Stunticons, and laser prime just because a scourge will be coming afterwards

    Yknow do you guys just ever take a step back and realize how sorta crazy WFC and the listings for legacy have been? Like ignoring the obvious g1 prime and them this line and the future legacy will be giving us/ has given us
    Black Zarack
    Unicron
    New versions of Beast wars characters
    Armada starscream
    Cybertron metroplex
    The Ark
    Commander Sky lynx
    New Jhiaxus
    New versions of the junior headmasters
    Laser rod optimus prime
    And of course fucking STAR SABER
    This has been a wild journey and it seems like it will just be getting wilder, can’t wait to see what else pops up in the future :D

    That's a different listing and wouldn't be found in a Target system since RED are Wal-Mart exclusives.

    Hell yes! Definitely looking forward to this one, the Prime figure left a lot to be desired.
