    Yeah, Road Rocket is cool, but I'd rather have Road Pig.

    Actually any G2 Laser Rods/Cycles or Cyberjets would be awesome.

    Gotta throw a bone out to ratchet and skywarp fans as well, almost all of them are exclusives to somewhere. Want a tetrajet and cybertronian van versions? Gotta go to Walgreens for one and Amazon for the other, both of which are crazy expensive in the after market. Want earth versions of both? Got to go to Amazon and Target, atleast one is still easily available. Hell even the beast wars character with skywarp’s name is an Exclusive

    Damn. 2 Autobots, 2 Decepticons. I'm here for it.

    I'd honestly rather the Laser Rod Optimus Prime mold for SG Ultra Magnus anyway. When we get a Delta Magnus, I'd want it to be in a mold better than the Kingdom mold. As underrated as the Kingdom mold is, I'd still prefer Magnus repaints that Hasbro wouldn't want to do too many times to be using a definitive mold.

    I… don't think any employees are sharing info completely without the expectation it'll be leaked to people more widely?

    Unfortunately (or not, the only unfortunate thing would be if he doesn't have the right head) we already saw Magnus's silhouette in the SG preview using what appeared to be the kingdom mold

    Are you sure that wasn’t just a placeholder image?

    Mind posting it for clarification?

    oh, that one, yeah that does make sense, but there also a good chance that not what the sg ultra magnus will look like, since comic usually go with previous designs or made up ones

    Could the ‘stargazer’ clue actually be Magnificus?

    He’s a new head & repaint of Perceptor (who we know is coming in Studio Series next year), transforms into a black microscope which is actually from Diaclone (well Microman, but it is still Takara pre-Transformers) & his microscope mode is pretty similar to a telescope, which you use to star gaze.

    We aren't, but their robot modes are similar enough that it probably doesn't matter to make the distinction

    That would also fit the "no wheels" hint.

    Prime Arcee normally gets a Flamewar repaint. But Roadrocket ... Has a chance maybe. I think Armada Sideways would be a Voyager, because he'd come with one or both large Head Masters. I could maybe see Roadpig as a Sideways Repaint. .....

    I think so. He's still on my list.

    Deluxes:
    • Burn-Out (Diaclone #1, "burnout")
    • Road Rocket (G2, "road rip")
    • Cosmos (G1 #1, "stargazing")
    • Gears (G1 #2, "crab")
    • Armada Sideways (UT #1, no hint)
    Voyagers:
    • (Diaclone #2, possibly "haul ass")
    • (UT #2, no hint)
    Leader:
    • Scourge (RID, "scourge")

    Amusingly enough it doesn’t, as Perceptor has a very random 3rd ‘tank’ mode which he’s had since G1, he just doesn’t use it in the cartoon or other media (it’s a holdover from a mode he had back when Takara first released him pre-Transformers)

    It’s also an official 3rd mode in the new Studio Series figure too!

    One final thing… I believe one of the people ‘in the know’ said there’s a loose theme going with some of the figures, it would be funny if most of them do happen to be black repaints like some people have jokingly suggested! :lol  (Burnout & RiD Scourge are both also black, as would LoudPedal if he appears here too)

    Here are all of the solid hints I'm aware of (more ambiguous hints will be after)
    *the 6 of 8 legit clues: "burn out", "haul ass", "road trip", "scourge", "stargazer", "crab" (helicopter & pet cobra were red herrings)
    *2 G1, 2 Diaclone, 2 UT, 1 RID, 1 G2
    *5 Deluxes, 2 Voyagers, 1 Leader
    *one of them doesn't have wheels
    *"if you know anyone who can find these EAN's, make sure they're well versed in both American and Japanese names" - jtprime I think

    More ambiguous hints (i.e. not really a yes or no)
    *if there's two motorcycles in this line, heads are gonna roll
    *of the eight characters in this line, I still have not seen a few of them guessed yet (i think that was posted around 2PM today?)
    *who said they were all retools?
