    If the rumor is "toys that didn't get a good original release" why would it be Topspin and Twintwist? Those two things seem to contradict each other.

    For the reason above I would agree with you. However if the rumor turns out not to be true, it wouldn't be the first time Hasbro has put out multiple releases of the same character really close together. I would prefer different characters that haven't already been done or at least weren't already done well than a release of someone like them.

    Though from pictures Twintwist seems to be completely hollow in the back? Maybe just a bad photo, I haven't seen it in person. They could possibly fix that if they were to make a new one.

    Topspin and Twin Twist are good solid Titans Return toys.

    Also Titans Return required more new molds to be made than there were original Headmasters so of course there were going to be characters that were not originally Headmasters.

    I would have liked all of the Headmasters to have been done before they started doing other characters though. We didn’t get Scorponok, the two Horrorcons or full size releases of the six “Headmaster Juniors” and their Masterforce repaints. Thankfully we are getting Apeface now, and he looks better than he would probably have done if he were in Titans Return.

    And Hasbro can’t really “de-Headmaster” the Titans Return toys as they were designed to not have their heads in place in vehicle mode.

    There’s no way to keep the head attached in vehicle mode even with remoulding. Maybe have it pop down?

    My guess was Twin Twist and Topspin because the hint for the two deluxes were characters that already had good figures recently.

    A new Topspin and Twin Twist makes no sense considering the Titans Return figures are awesome. I'd rather HasTak focus on characters who haven't received a new figure in ages.

    Right on except the other hint was that the armored car was never made by 3P

    As for the deluxes, I'm guessing Kup and Rodimus

    You’re right, I keep forgetting the Leader hasn’t had a 3P version. I just keep coming back to Doubledealer or Bulkhead.

    I'm still hoping someday for a Broadside which doesn't have at least one terrible mode. Would be a pleasant surprise to get that. But I'll be happy to at least get a Snapdragon to go with Apeface.

    It would be a travesty if Snapdragon doesn't happen.

    Doubtful.
    He looks good, but there are plenty of things that at first glance could have been done better.

    Actually I've seen customs that have already done it with some figures. While they were designed to not have heads in place in vehicle mode several figures do manage to have places where heads could easily have been stored in vehicle mode had they not been Headmasters. Galvatron for example has a large cavity in the chest big enough to fit an entire head rather than just a face plate. Customizers have taken advantage of that cavity in order to de-headmaster the figure.

    This may not work with EVERY Titan Master. I think all the ones I've seen were Voyagers or larger as those figures already had spaces for extra parts that would flip over the Titan Master and it was pretty easy for some people to re purpose those gimmicks in order to just put a permanent head on the figures. The Deluxe figures might be harder to do this with as they don't already have such gimmicks built into them.

    Basically I'm pretty sure the Deluxe Class Titans Returns toys are the only ones you can't de-headmaster. All the larger figures actually have cavities in them that could accommodate a permanent head should Hasbro decide to remold them without the Headmaster gimmick.

    I will take guesses. Updated.

    Deluxe
    Topspin and Twintwist
    -It's been rumored the two Deluxes are toys that didn't get a good original release. I think Hasbro could de headmaster them and add battle damage (if they are keeping battle damage). I don't have either of the two TR Deluxes.

    Voyager Snapdragon and Thunderclash
    -It's been rumored that one was expected and the other is up for speculation. Snapdragon is needed for Apeface and Thunderclash could be done as a remold of Siege Optimus Prime.

    Leader Sentinel Prime
    -It's supposed to be an armored car. Either him or Dion. Or Alpha Trion.

    Commander Sky Lynx
    -It's supposed to compliment Omega Supreme. Nuff said.

    Titan Scorponok
    -This one has been indirectly confirmed and is extremely likely anyway.

    Well, the only ones that weren't made by 3P are Broadside, Dion, Devcon, Sentinel Prime, and Alpha Trion. Could it be Dion? Or Sentinel Prime? Updated list above.

    Has there been a 3rd party figure of Elita-1 released? I know one was planned. Otherwise I think she might actually fit the bill. Her previous toy was definitely divisive! Lots of people wanted her to be some sort of armoured car like she was in G1 instead of a jet, & she fits the bill of early G1 otherwise.

    I will take guesses. Updated. Again.

    Deluxe
    Wheeljack and Sunstreaker
    -It's been rumored the two Deluxes are toys that had a decent release already. Wheeljack has been seen in promo art, and Sunstreaker has been rumored for a long time.

    Voyager Snapdragon and Thunderwing
    -It's been rumored that one was expected and the other is up for speculation. Snapdragon is needed for Apeface. Rumor is the Voyager that is not supposeably Snapdragon (other one) makes sense because of the line name, Armageddon. So either Thunderwing or Bludgeon.

    Leader Sentinel Prime
    -It's supposed to be an armored car. Makes sense.

    Commander Sky Lynx
    -It's supposed to compliment Omega Supreme. Nuff said.

    Titan Scorponok
    -This one has been indirectly confirmed and is extremely likely anyway.
    Yes
    Considering they just made Ultra Magnus (a similar character) I doubt it.

    Oh, so it's not them.
