    I love the old Warpath, but if they can make him transform from an articulated 'bot into a clean tank instead of a sillyH-tank, I'd be down.

    This is like the one time I actually hope they follow Sunbow and make him a BIG deluxe instead of another "Legends SCALE in a deluxe box"

    @Protoman
    I watch all your vids.

    Super happy to hear the Galvatron news. Personally I'm really hoping for Shattered Glass Megatron or Galvatron. But I could see Energon Megatron too.

    We might get lucky and it be a Voyager with add on parts to make it look like Energon Galvatron, thereby hitting G1 and Energon in one swing and lining up SG Megatron.

    ...but I think the core class will be G1 Prime and Megatron. I do like Bat Prime and Gater Meg's a lot. I think those were my first BW figures. But I think there are good reasons to have G1 Prime in the core class.

    - To keep a G1 Prime in the line.
    - Because of the Kingdom box art
    - There is very likely an orange spaceship that Prime often helms in the Titan scale.
    (Perfect way to have Titan scale and theme appropriate Minifigures)

    Of course I don't have close friends on the inside, maybe someone here could dispel my illusions.

    Rodimus....is not Leader Class, I bet he's Commander Class.... Fight me Star Saber fans. :p

    @Apollux Any idea on what the fan vote for Kingdom is going to be on? Also there any signs of more quints and mercs?

    I 100% want a remake of Metroplex (hate how it's a bad mix of game design and G1) and Fort Max (just bad).

    Just FYI I don't post on Seibertron, looks like a summary from here as others have mentioned. Not sure where rumour of non-G1 Op/Megs in core class came from.

    Haven't seen any listing for a Fanvote figure yet.
    Might be something different for next year?

    Not sure sorry I don't normally pay attention to SS as the movie designs aren't my cup of tea.

    Same here. I just hope we're getting more minibots in SS, or, failing that, Kingdom.

    So we should continue with the previous idea that core Optimus Prime and Megatron are indeed G1 style?

    That's a teeny tank drone that they accidentally mislabeled on the packaging.


    We very much still need a real Tankor.

    Sorry, but dang, I hope not, my biggest problem with Titans Return and PotP were that the Galvatron and Rodimus we got were in no way near close to each other.

    After HasTak gave us arguably the most perfect mainline versions of Optimus and Megatron we've ever gotten in SIEGE,
    it's only fair that we finally get a decent mainline Galvatron and Rodimus in scale with each other.

    And I'm sure some kind of trailer is sadly inevitable for Rodimus, but I think it would be amazing if HasTak finally gave us a
    perfect transforming Rodimus Prime with the trailer integrated into the body.

    Which would probably put him at Leader Class like Doubledealer, and personally, I would be OK if that made him a head taller than Galvatron like
    how DD turned out in ER.

    I feel like anything bigger, Commander, heaven forbid Titan... would completely defeat the purpose of making a new RP since the whole point of
    WFC since the beginning has been scale, according to Warden at least.

    That’s only because Siege leaders are tiny.

    I am still wondering why they did not kept Scorponok for titan in kingdom. Sure the Scorponok is different from beast wars version, but the alt mode would have fitted well. I am sure they have good plans, seeing how great siège and earthrise turned out

    Yep. My source is a guy who’s in charge of packaging (he worked on the POTP throne, Haslab beachball, SS44, Reflector Recon pack, ER Prime and Quintesson 5 pack). He does have an NDA so prying him for the exact details for future toys are futile.
