    Leave it to HasTak to make an app working with new figures. Like they did for SW and NuRiD. If they're smart, that's it.

    I like this gimmick more because it's easier for me to pretend it doesn't exist. Headmasters got old after 2 waves.

    Seriously, only 6 figures revealed? That's lame.

    Did anyone get close enough to see if those black covers on top of Rodimus's shoulders look like CW ports?

    Looks like the interview just posted says the prime avatars unlock gimmicks so guess it's very possible.

    I've seen a Fort Max version, but I haven't seen this done yet (apologies if I've been beaten to the punch)!

    CHOW DOWN TO POWER UP!

    Hmm, perhaps. I wonde if thrust would work though? He's often selected with wings on his back, rather than his legs. Is the thinking that the combined chest will likely be the top aide of the jet?

    The current theory is that Screamer transforms like CW Silverbolt. And if you look at the photo of the underside of the jet you can see the robot just chilling out there. Also looking at the toy you can see a number of hinges that don't seem to be part of the jet to robot transformation, there are two in his torso and his arms appear to be on some kind of hinge that would let them swing down. What ever he does we'll find out September 8-10.

    I don't think Starscream transforms like Silverbolt. Similar, yes. But his legs are more like the Deluxe jets and Silverbolt doesn't have joints on his wings.

    Torso mode is likely different. If he has one and this isn't a red herring for a brute mode style power up.

    I'm not the biggest fan of what they're doing with the deluxes and voyagers for this line I AM however pretty hyped for the leader classes. If every upcoming leader class for this line has that super mode gimmick I am going to be pretty excited. Maybe we will finally get an updated Armada Optimus Prime to go toe to toe with leader class Armada Megatron. Starsaber is another leader class that would work. Speaking of Armada Meg's it would be nice to get another one with a body that's actually accurate to his original design this time however he wouldn't fit in with this line as far as the whole gimmick goes. My wait for the perfect Armada Megatron figure continues~

    This, definitely! I also want a leader Thunderwing, that would be dope as hell and the perfect way to update his pretender gimmick.

    Really fond of the Armada Prime cab bot mode and spent some time back in the day watching Armada, so I would be pretty happy with a redo and a proper super mode. I don't know if I have space for a Prime of that scale, unfortunately, but if there's any customizing potential — and isn't tubby like Rodimus — it may be good as bought.

    I suspect the reason they didn't show the gimmick is: A. Like you said, they're saving it for Hascon, or B. They only have three deluxes on show and one voyager, not enough for a full combiner. They would have to bring in something from combiner wars to fill the gap and that would be very confusing, people would think that figure is getting rereleased. Plus, maybe these deluxes aren't meant to go specifically with Starscream, they might have something else in mind. I know there likely will be a fourth deluxe in this wave but Hasbro rarely reveals all of one size class for a wave without revealing the others too.
