    I honestly think Getaway, Krok, and Quake are the only 3 blatant "mold reuse" offenders. The rest have been changed enough to feel like brand new toys.

    And they're all shortpacks.

    You're not wrong.

    Just give me an Override from Blurr, a Stalker from Hardhead, a Pharma from Triggerhappy, and a Carnivac from Weirdwolf and I'll be happy.

    And Getaway is the only lazy repaint really. Krok and Quake have enough interesting colours and paint apps to get them.

    Still hoping for Wolfang repaint from Weirdwolf.

    If we are getting Misfire, and just got a Quake, and we need to re-use Highbrow, then why not Spinister?

    Well, that is great news and far less great news.
    A new Windblade toy is not what i hoped for in this line, a repack of wolfwire is downright depressing.

    Considering the inclusion of Windblade and a repack it sadly seems genuine enough.

    Spinister is most likely coming as well considering we're getting both Krok and Misfire. I think there were rumours of Flywheels already and I wouldn't be surprised if we get Fulcrum from Scourge.

    Needlenose and Spinister were made by the club. Hasbro wouldn't let them make Quake because there was a Quake in the works already. But they were allowed to make the others, so I assume Hasbro doesn't have any immediate plans for them.

    Thanks for the news though.
    I wanted it and now i got it, and at least 50 procent of it is great news.
    Looking forward to Misfire and Twin Twist :)

    Twin twist and Topspin are soooooo tempting. Eveytime I look at them I say WOW, But I have a rule, I only buy SHOW characters for my kids because there is SOOOO many characters just in the shows and they just dont really care about guys that dont show up in the cartoon. If I open that can, there will be too many toys to give to my kids LOL.

    Wondering when Machinimas next series comes out ? If they show Topspin and Twin twist my kids may want them

    Misfire is of course bought

    Windblade, not, I am perfectly happy with the Takara Legends one ( unless she becomes a headmaster in Machinimas series )

    I'm still holding out for the rumoured Carnivac re-head. In fact, if Misfire, Twintwist and Highbrow are more extensive remoulds, maybe that's why there's less detail about the Wolfwire reship - it's a straight repaint like Getaway or Quake?

    I actually think that Krok is better than skullmasher and Quake is better than hardhead (these two still a great figs).

    He's labelled as a repack, so I highly doubt it.

    And none of the TR stuff has used code names.

    Aside from a revision, there has not been any repacked figures in inital waves for deluxes. So this just seems odd.

    What ever happened to Crosshairs and Slugslinger that were originally leaked by the podcast for wave 5?

    Wouldn't Misfire and twin twist both be repaint/retools of Topspin? In the same wave?

    Well leaks aren't generally based on finalized information. Anything could happen until these are in our hands, I just shared what the official solicitation I received has listed.

    Before wave 4, people were convinced that every wave of Deluxes must absolutely consist of four different toys each because waves 1-3 did it and so did Combiner Wars before.

    There are some patterns, but they're not written in stone.

    I'll never understand the hatred for Windblade.
