    I suspect Doublecross will end up as both Pounce & Wingspan

    I can see Doublecross getting different remoulds as Fangry - replace the dragon heads with a wolf head that splits in two to form the arms - and possibly Squeezeplay

    I wouldn't take Bumblebee getting a new Generations toy as an indication that he'll return in IDW. Plenty of characters who are dead in IDW like Trailbreaker and the Technobots have gotten new toys without returning in the comics.. Right now Bumblebee exists in IDW as the voice of reason in Starscream's head, and that's in all likelihood how he's going to stay.

    And as for Hasbro doing a new Legends Bumblebee, I don't really mind. IMO, the T30 Legends Bee is too distinctly WFC to really fit in on a Classics shelf.

    I don't know: given the timing and that we are seeing some straight repaints (+ new heads, duh) in TR that don't necessarily fit the character to a T (Getaway), and since ONLY Pounce has been rumored (As i understand the Transmissions info, same with the 'bot clones, only 1 has been confirmed, they listed the others as "suppositions based on the fact we are getting one of them") and Weirdwolf has no other OBVIOUS repaint amongst the rumor lists, he just seems the most likely candidate.
    i could TOTALLY see them getting Fangry from that mold ~ basically new head like you said and new beast legs and you are set.

    In hypothetical land, i could see Squeezeplay and Repugnus sharing a mold...

    (also, i still can't believe we are getting a new Doublecross mold, that's just shocking!!!)

    I can see a lot of detail in common between the Decepticon Clones and the new Doublecross in robot mode. Remoulding him two ways to get the animal modes would work.

    Certainly there's more coming....

    I would assume anyway. For such a major event, it's a small number of reveals.

    there is the Chinese Cybertron Con (or whatever it is called) next weekend, they may be saving the other half of wave 3 (aka, what ws on the cross sells + the Deluxes) for there.

    Hasbro's reveals have been getting increasingly underwhelming of late...I was really expecting a bit more at SDCC.

    Being a leader class figure, and considering how Hasbro avoids gun modes.... what if they replace Six Shot's Gun mode with.... a base mode?

    Edit: I see I'm not the only one to ponder this.

    Maybe its a play on "Tesla"?

    Brainstorm and Bumblebee look good, but I will be sticking with the CW Megatron, this one is too darn clunky.

    The amount of detail on Megs is quite astonishing. If only he had the silver paint CW Megs had. Takara?

    I'm really liking the new legends figures, they look like they could've been deluxe class.

    And Liokaiser, I'm pleasantly surprised how well he looks. His head sculpt is simply beautiful, and all the colorful colors. Amazing

    The new Megatron looks great but this is a mold best fitted for Blitzwing! I read somewhere that there will be a Blitzwing and it is suppose to be a repaint of Megs. I'll wait till we see Blitz. I like my generations blitz but this one looks so much better and closer to the G1 version.

    I kind of want Megatron just to swap his and Galvatron's heads.

    I really really like Megatron, and the pictures of the actual figure don't look all that bad, despite the mostly unpainted plastic, the grays used actually work. But with Blitzwing a sure thing to follow I feel like I may as well just wait for the better colorscheme, and honestly a character that fits the mold more, but will the Blitzwing release have mold degradation to mean Megatron is the safer buy? Maybe I'll get both?

    Mold degradation will not happen within the lifetime of the first line using it, no matter how many retools.

    All the Titans Return stuff is pretty amazing. Megatron looks awesome
