    Him and Squeezeplay are the two leading theories right now, although Armada Sideways is gaining traction because crabs walk sideways. The thing about Gears is, if it's him, he'd be a remold of Swerve, and as far as I know we haven't had any Evolution Swerve rumors. Also, Swerve in the mainline while Gears gets shunted to a store exclusive slot? Peculiar.

    If that’s the case then I’m back to Squeezeplay as my non-wheeled character, even though I still can’t see him in a race. :lol

    It seems like all the 84-85 bots get their own mold, unless they originally have a mold mate (Red Alert/Sideswipe, Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen, Ratchet/Ironhide, Seekers)

    Struggling to see who could be retooled into Gears.

    Goes with the “kind of sort of see a theme” aspect.

    Swerve could be Selects, if Gears shows up in this subline. Would be odd if Gears showed up there, but not impossible.

    I've been waiting for Deluxe RID Spychanger decos for awhile now, since we now have enough good G1 bots to repaint with new heads at the very least.

    Crankcase is in the mainline, cranky and crabby mean kind of the same thing, so crab hint = IDW redeco/new head for Crankcase (like they did with Siege Mirage)?

    Ok, out there concept, but here me out:

    What if the non-wheeled character is Cybertron Signal Lancer? A stop light would fit in perfectly with the rest of the theme and he could be the "stargazer" from the clues as his whole shtick was looking to do bigger things and explore space so his "legacy will be written large among the stars." And he would be a Soundwave because a lamppost is kinda like a stoplight and Soundwave's accessories can already make a staff weapon that Signal Lancer has.

    Also, for my two cents, I think crab is referencing RID15 Clampdown, but instead of that Clampdown, it's actually Diaclone Clampdown.

    [QUOTE="gdg104198, post: 19476128,

    oh man is he going to lose the wheels in the back? i dig those.

    [/QUOTE]

    I think so, Arcee 's wheels go into her legs, but the figure always left one on her back, if they put both on her back you might be able to fan them out, but the best Motorcycle transformation is animated prowl, where both wheels go into his legs.

    Personally as long as it's Roadrocket I'm happy!

    Yep, so the layout is:
    Five Deluxes
    Two Voyagers (unsure if Netflix or Retail priced)
    One Leader (Unsure if Netflix or Retail price)

    if you know anyone who can find these EAN's, make sure they're well versed in both American and Japanese names.

    Personally, I believe the voyagers will be standard retail price. As for the leader, knowing who he is; I can see him as a Netflix style leader with the extra bits and bobs. Though I do have no way of knowing for sure.

    I do want to clarify one thing, when I said the Russian was your hint, I meant that the messages in Russian were all hints, not the context surrounding Devcon and CDF Red Alert.

    Plus the name just fits for Velocitron

    A friend of mine was showing me the designs for them side by side, I think it'd be a perfect choice for Blurr.

    LMAO

    Welcome to the life of RID01' and UT fans.

    If there's two motorcycles in this line, heads are gonna roll.

    Who said everyone was a retool?

    Hot Rod to Hotshot if they remove the spoiler.
    Sideswipe to Crosswise and Rev.
    Mirage to Mirage (shocking I know).
    I can't think of anything for Ironhide and Wars.

    I know, it’d be like having Cliffjumper in the mainline while a licensed VW gets shunted to nigh-impossible-to-find store exclusive — but Hasbro’d never do that, right?

    Are you able to say if anyone's been correct that one of the voyagers is Hauler (Or his alt name Roadhauler)?

    Well, now that he's hinting not everyone is a retool, Gears fits in fine. We know they tried to get him into Kingdom and cut him at the last minute, this must be where there was an opening.

    TBH I think the spy changers would work best at Core class to be more accurate to the original toys.

    I cannot confirm nor deny at this time, as JTPrime said, you'll need to wait for EAN's before we can comment further on the contents of this line.

    The most I'll confirm is that RID 01' Scourge is coming, and that of the eight characters in this line, I still have not seen a few of them guessed yet.
