    It might be too much to ask for, but I hope Leadfoot won't be in a two pack lol. Two packs are expensive over here.

    If I were in charge of choosing who got packaged with Fossilizers, it'd be the toys that were more compatible with them than others (5mm ports everywhere), so sadly a retool of Mirage would definitely adhere to that standard better than a couple of Titans Returns molds. That's why my guess is that the Fossilizers would come with Leadfoot and Impactor. They're the two Deluxe Class WFC molds that we know of.

    Well, they’re the only modern molds of the Jumpstarters we’ve gotten, so I’d be surprised if they were new molds.

    Side note: while I love the idea of homaging overlooked foreign redecos of G1 toys as much as the next trivia-loving geek, I kinda hope the rumor that the Jumpstarters getting decos based on their Salt-Man X/Z variants are false.

    We were also told at one point Hasbro was planning on releasing the TR jumpstarters under the retro Headmaster subline at Walmart at some point. I wouldn't be shocked if that plan fell through and evolved into this.

    I'd love to be wrong, and it turns out we're actually getting new mold versions of the jumpstarters at retail or something, and their saltman colors in the Wreckers subline, but Occam's razor says they're more likely the TR ones. At least until we get more information.

    I wonder if the fossilizers will be Rack’n’Ruin.

    some decent vehicle shots in the new wreckers preview

    Knock Out's missing some serious color, like the gold rims; hopefully it's just the lighting but I hope he still has the two-tone red

    Ah, indeed. I'm just realising Top Spin and Twin Twist probably come in a two-pack together.

    Looks like he does? The color on the hood and sides looks different from the top of the car, so I'm assuming that's the case.

    Is it possible a Thunderclash as leader of wrecker subline? (I noticed that you are talking about an WG exclusive in with the line)

    I doubt they'd put him in, at least for right now. If he was the Bulkhead retool, the comics would follow suit, as it's shown us the as of yet unrevealed Hauler, Leadfoot, and Knockout. Again, he could be put in a future wave, as we don't know exactly if what we've gotten so far is what we'll get, but I doubt that we'll get Thunderclash in the line.

    Well its not the mood thrilling line up but it's not bad. The two new Fossilizers are probably the most exciting thing here. Especially being new alt modes.

    If the Jumpstarters do end up being their Saltman decos Id be happy, I have their TR versions and those look like fun colors. Curious to see what Springer and Bulkhead recolors will turn out to be. Leadfoot sounds fun, always down for more yellow.

    Bummed there's no Thunderclash. I started thinking of him right away when this first leaked and I got my heart set before anyone said don't be too excited. Well, I got too excited. Oh well, maybe in a 2023 line!

    I could see Thunderclash out of Motormaster given the look of the cab, plus the base bit of the trailer that was rumoured would make sense, just dont use it as the combiner skeleton.

    Can you comment on if any of those redecos are still going to be the same character?

    Eg is the Springer redeco still going to be Springer? Etc.

    My guesses:

    Deluxe Leadfoot + Fossilizer
    Deluxe Impactor + Fossilizer
    Deluxe Topspin + Twintwist
    (mold color and assembly synergy)

    Voyager Bulkhead redeco
    Voyager Springer redeco

    So I went looking around for alternate colors....
    Impactor has been pretty consistent through the years but this coloration stands out...

    Twintwist and Topspin have people referencing Saltman Z

    But Hasbro has been on a Diaclone kick, I'd say the blue and gray is more likely since there is art for it.

    800px-DiacloneTopspin.jpg 800px-DiacloneTwinTwist.jpg

    But wait there is more....

    As for Springer, I'm guessing based on what was said that Springer is clean but missing some paint apps....the marvel version.

    I can't really think of alternate versions of either Bulkhead. Help.

    Hmm. I’d actually be more okay if the alleged Topspin and Twin Twist redecos are based on their blue and grey Diaclone variants. It just fits them. (But the red ones aren’t so bad either.)

    Uh...Energon Bulkhead? Or you meant alternate decos? Then all I can think of is Mudbuster Bulkhead (for Animated), Battle Tactics Bulkhead and Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commander Bulkhead (for Prime).

    Jtprime - this is the separate Amazon subline like Golden Disk and Galactic Odyssey right? Will there be separate Amazon exclusive two packs that are part of Legacy like Battle Across Time was part of Kingdom?
