    Very true there. Tempted to just wait and see if we get any rumors by next January or February.

    This'll work as a retool later for the double sekrit Transformers: Collaborative My Little Pony crossover. Or as a CHUGL update to Mach Kick.

    I really hated the Earthrise van mold. And I think the Earthrise Arcee mold is crap too.

    I managed to get the two-packs all for "retail". Ending up selling the three Vanbros and Paradron Medic for a significant profit on eBay.

    I welcome the new molds for these two sets of characters!

    Just for reference, the Fwoosh top ten poll results were published in April 2020 and were as follows:

    1. Needlenose
    2. Silverbolt BW
    3. Flamewar IDW
    4. Tarn
    5. Blaster
    6. Thunderwing
    7. Nightbeat
    8. Brawn
    9. Perceptor
    10. Sureshot

    With Gears, Nautica and Pointblank just missing out.

    What's crazy is that we are definitely getting Blaster, Perceptor and Pointblank, almost certainly getting Flamewar and Nightbeat, and probably getting Brawn and Gears in next two years or so just based on their 84 status and the new deluxe sized minibots trend. Sureshot seems likely, and Thunderwing has been hinted as someone Hasbro want to get to.

    That just leaves Tarn, Nautica, Silverbolt and Needlenose really. (And Needlenose's design exists on their hard drives already).

    Battle sleds = parts forming = no thanks!

    Anyway, the answer to the question of the presence of battle sleds is in the title of the line....

    Tbh I hope they have the sleds, it's an interesting weapons thing and at a Voyager price point, could be decked out into something serious

    Oof... Voyager class Van mode but because of the battle sled the actual robot is still a small deluxe...

    Energon Towline was probably the best true update to the original Ironhide/Ratchet design we have ever seen. I know it was made into both of them for a Botcon set, but that went too expensive too quickly for my taste.

    Anyhow, I wonder if we might see a BW Buzzsaw/G1 Buzzsaw (from the WfC Waspinator and Laserbeak molds) two-pack somewhere down the line, maybe for Target's Buzzworthy line (Buzzworthy Buzzsaw sounds great?).

    I think BW Buzzsaw and Lazorbeak would make a great two pack. Lazorbeak being a repaint of Terrosaur. But of course I want G1 cassette Buzzsaw too

    Hey Hasbro if you have a filler line in mind because of the Rise of the Beasts hiccup, may I interest you in Beast Wars recolors and a little tweak of that Arcee mold?

    Nightprowler, Horrorcon Blackarachnia, Skywasp, Flamewar, Fractyl, Packrat, Sandstorm, BW Buzzsaw, Double Punch and others are right here for you. Hell, you could even release innaccurate homages like back in the day or new characters while we're waiting for other proper versions. Wouldn't it be nice if there were, say, a black and green T. rex with a new dino head that makes me suspiciously nostalgic for 1998? And a Core Smilodon?

    *Edited the last part of the joke out.*

    Yeah, because this is how you ask for things; by swearing and acting like a entitled fan

    It's a stupid joke that I tacked on to end what was already a pretty jokey post. You think Hasbro actually reads these things or would ever listen to a single post? I sure don't.

    I mean, yeah I want them to do that BW stuff, even the absurd Cruellock, but I'm not exactly expecting them to see what I said and think "Geez, this one guy on the internet with Optimus Prime jokes on his profile said he wanted Packrat so we better make him!" I still wear as my avatar a recolor that I think would have been cool but never got and I'm still fine with the fact.

    With ROTB being delayed I think if they were to make a new subline to hold people over until 2023 arrives it would be cool if they took notes from the AOE and TLK sublines and give us repaints/retools of the WFC and SS 86 molds into the live action movie characters both from the Bay and Knight universes if only to see what they would look like in CHUG form. For example that can be how we'd get Legacy G2 Optimus in the bayverse color scheme.

    This is another cool idea. I like these crossover type lines. Kingdom was already cool but Legacy really pushes it further which is really fun to see. Not sure how many molds would really work for the movie characters, though. There's obviously Laser Prime to Bay Prime but heavier remolding could also get DOTM Megatron. Some others I can think of:

    - A couple of the bike sisters from Legacy Arcee
    - Remold cab and shins of Bulkhead, decent base for original trilogy Ironhide
    - Datsun mold into Bumblebee
    - Jazz from... Jazz
    - Brawl from ER Megatron
    - Grimlock and Strafe from Kingdom molds (my preference would be toy colors, but the green and black of Grimlock would be pretty cool and black would hide Terrorsaur's flaws pretty well)
    - Shockwave from Siege/ER Megatron

    Quintessons

    I’m really surprised there is no Quint figures coming up in Legacy (at least not yet.) They seem to have sold very well, the Judge at least. I hope they’ll make some more in the future. Scientist, executioner, prosecutor etc.

    Those are cool ideas. :)  Some of those like Bee and Jazz are what I had in mind too. There's also these in mind.

    Takara's Super Megatron into TLK Megatron. I mean basically color him in TLK colors and you're done given that he has a TLK styled face to begin with.
    Both AOE Evasion Optimus and AOE Galvatron from ER Optimus Prime
    ER Trailbreaker into Movie Ratchet
    AOE Hound from well Legacy Bulkhead
    Siege Springer into AOE/TLK Drift
    Kingdom Tracks into AOE/TLK Crosshairs
    ROTB Mirage from SS 86 Jazz
    ROTB Wheeljack from ER Ironhide/SS 86 Ironhide
    TLK Onslaught from ER Hoist

    Liked the idea, but hated the execution. Those too-skinny legs!

    Buzzworthy Buzzsaw 4pk: BW Buzzsaw (Kingdom Waspinator), G1 Buzzsaw (Siege Laserbeak or even Masterwork Laserbeak), Cybertron Buzzsaw (Siege Spinister), Armada Buzzsaw (Kingdom Slammer)?
