    I think Gnaw hasn't been reworked, just fits in now since there's no Targetmaster included. Has unique tooling and looks like clear eyes for Sharkticon mode. Translucent plastic isn't on very many Legends(I know it's on Wheelie, this new Bumblebee and Shockwave).

    Hoping that Brawn isn't just the same mold as Gears. And where the hell is Kickback?

    It's most likely pretooled for Blitzwing and probably was originally designed as Blitzwing. This release is probably just to get more reuse out of the mold using a popular character and it does fit Megatron well too. By the time this is released, it might be 2 years after the CW Leader Megatron. Hopefully Takara paints theirs silver or does their usual "when in doubt, go gunmetal" deco.

    Now I wouldn't be surprised if 2017 voyager Laser Prime is a pretool for Octane. Seems like Generations from 2014 onward has had figures that make up for existing older figures. For example, those that weren't adequate enough get new figures. People weren't content with FOC deluxe Whirl and Roadbuster so we got voyager Whirl and Roadbuster which were more G1. Thrilling 30 could've been better so now we are getting a new mold(this Megatron) which may end up being used for a new Blitzwing figure. We got space truck FOC Blaster and Soundwave but people wanted tape decks so now we are getting leader tape deck base versions of both.

    Doubledealer didn't turn out as G1 as I had hoped, hopefully voyager Snapdragon can be retooled as Doubledealer or maybe we get an all new mold(hopefully).

    No, just a preview event, Hasbro does this each year for SDCC. There's more to show in the next few days.

    Gnaw looks fun. Could go for three of those.... not feeling Meh-gatron. Or much else really.

    Some kind of an Op Prime on the back of the box for Megs as well. Was looking forward to a Voyager Megs but the cannon looks weird.

    Any chance that the figure that's there in person is a rough prototype, and Megs will look more like this picture on the back when he's released at retail? In this picture he looks silver like CW Megatron, and it makes a world of difference! I know, I know, WISHFUL thinking.

    Six Shot looks awesome! He'd better have six modes, and I'm excited to see that Voyager Primes alt-modes. If the Octane rumor is true, I wonder if it'll be painfully obvious like Megatron is with Blitzwing.

    Legends Bee looks cool, but can we take this mold and the last Legends Bee mold and make a Hubcap and Bumper please?

    Guess we're probably getting a new Blitzwing soon.

    Love that Gnaw!!!

    The more that gets confirmed from that list, the closer I get to a brand new Tidal Wave.
    If they show Tidal Wave over the next few days I may actually die from a joyneurysm.

    Hasbro-"Profits continue to drop, why just this week we lost the rights to Jurassic Park. Lets continue to make toys cheaper and cheaper, by doing this we alienate collectors and kids alike. Making toys cheaper will make profits go up...oh wait...every quarter our profits continue to go down. Oh well...surely it will work eventually..."

    I know I'm being mean, but come on!! The paint apps are just terrible. As much as I would love to buy any of those molds, they just look awful with no paint. I may buy a few gnaws, but I will wait for the eventual (and unfortunately more expensive) Takara releases. Megatron (while a decent mold) just looks terrible.

    The boxart has the tank with a small canon, but the armcanon is supposed to fit over the tiny barrel.
    Theres a picture among the presentation pics.

    These are all great. I am so broke this year, between the combiner sets and the Titans Return stuff. Time to sell a kidney!!
    Really want a few Sharkticons. And I had an awesome idea just now, which HasTak are welcome to steal if they'll make it happen: Quintessons. Five faces. So bring out one Base Quint figure, but each face is a Titanmaster, and the idea is they're stealing Titanmasters to use their powers! Deluxe size, maybe nearer Voyager price due to coming with five Masters. Thoughts, everyone?

    Also: Megatron transforms into Cloud Starscream! Say whaaaat? (he's superb tho! I just thought his jet might be more Cybertron based)

    I hope ... no I want to hope that the inevitable Cliffjumper release will have a new head. But Hasbro has not had the best track record with Cliffjumper outside of Prime.

    Yeah, everything looks good here. Will probably pick up Lio-Kaiser/Megatron/Gnaw.

    I love Liokaiser so hard. Haven't pulled the trigger on any CW box sets yet, but this very well might be day one purchase for me. It's so good.

    I think I want that Megs, but in silver. I wonder if TakTom will bother making him, or if they'll pass on him and just go straight to Blitzwing instead.

    I want Megatron, Gnaw, Sawback, Liokaiser, Blitzwing!

    It was so nice not having BB clog shelves during CW and thus far into TR, guess that joy ends.
