    Three bases? Or three bot modes? Or three hands and feet? (Sorry the way it was worded could mean either one lol.) Just trying to clarify, are you saying that - NOT counting Ironworks - you saw an illustration of 3 different bases that are probably Voyager or Leader but you aren't certain? Thank-you btw!

    I think the descriptions for the earthrise figures have said that the autobots and decepticons are looking for the allspark, so perhaps the quints and mercs are looking for it aswell.

    I got it...maybe the armored car leader is Micromaster Overlord, whose trailer becomes both a base and robot.

    except that cats said this was unrelated to his other rumors, "separate to previous hints" he said, so its this new base and the armored car as leaders if the base isnt a voyager
    my guess is groundshaker if voyager or skystalker if leader, but thats more of a wish than anything with evidence to back it up

    Man, interlocking MM bases would be really dope. I have concerns for my display space and wallet, of course - I'm getting three of Ironworks so I can have him in all three modes - but that's a cool rumor. As a crazy, wild, stupid guess, the Decepticon Anti-Aircraft Base would work out well with a Gutcruncher 'bot mode.

    This is an "okay then" leak. I've still picked them up, but the weaponizers were definitely the weakest part of Siege for me, given how easily they fall apart, and how parts-formery they have to be. Not that I'm ungrateful, I'll take any leaks I can get, but unless these are classic characters, I'm far less likely to care about a micromaster base that turns into a robot.

    Remember that before this, catz said Ironworks was a surprise and that he hadn't heard about Micromaster bases prior to that (this new set of hints obviously is new, and subsequent to that.) Meaning the Leader hinted at is probably not Groundshaker (that was my original guess before learning that, and why I lean towards Doubledealer now.)

    This is a new Leader, apparently. Separate from the previously rumored one.

    Maybe Greasepit and Hot House will be larger figures that include their Micromasters? With Countdown being the third one Catz mentioned.

    Aw yeah leader class Metroplex, Fort Max, & Grandus!

    Okay probably not, but is really interesting. The weaponizers from Siege stuck to the deluxe class, so to see the modulators expand to different size classes is interesting. Also, maybe @catz could clarify, but could you tell if they were they actually modulators, or was it a bot that transforms into a base, no partsforming required? Because that would add a new aspect.

    Another thought: could this be one of the rumored Quintessons? Probably not, since catz mentioned seeing the hands and feet of a bot, & well, quints have none of the above, but maybe they are still related in some way.

    Far fetched yes, but what if it's G1 Overload hauling Armada Overload in Energon Ultra Magnus colors as his trailer which forms not only a leader sized body but also a base to connect ramps to?

    Very interesting, thanks for that info. :D 

    Since as you say you only saw illustrations I'm not going to speculate much on this for now as they may not happen at all.

    Catz, man, again with the ambiguity! What does 3 mean? I'm taking it to mean three previously unrevealed Micromaster bases which you think are probably leader class?

    I would say three separate molds which are only bases/robots in leader class is unlikely. One or two molds with a redeco maybe. But they'd also need to have a third mode other than base and robot. The Overlord guess is a good example.

    He says 3, connecting to each other, so 3 separate products.

    If so many Micromasters bases are going to be released, someone has to make an adapter to connect them to TR bases. Just imagine the play value.

    So I assume all 3 together will combine into one bigger base and since catz thinks this could be leader class base, maybe each one of them is deluxe. So i'm thinking this could be 3 remaining micromaster stations.

    Beast Wars? Yuck no thanks.
    My guess would be the four '89 Station homages run as Deluxes, Groundshaker's AFV and Skystalker's helicopter would be equivalent to Leaders or Commanders and Countdown and Skystalker's bases if made would today be small Titans.
