    Well, yeah. He had kind of been told to us outright. Are there codes for all eight figures?

    personally im hoping if Magna Convoy is legit that he comes with a gold redeco of Rodimus Primes sword of primus. That'd be sick

    I think I do. I hope.

    I mean, headcanon is perfectly okay. But I just think that presenting headcanon as the basis of a point of that nature kinda doesn't make much sense, y'know? It's essentially arguing interpretations. That I think is when author/owner intent should come in as the "tiebreaker" of sorts, that's all. You do you though.

    So, since ive been away for a couple days and already there is 25 pages worth that im not skimming through

    is RID scourge the only one correct?
    or did some others get guessed right?

    btw, imma put this guess out here
    and tell me if these are confirmed:

    The cars reference way back is a reference to racing, such as Velocitron, thats my guess on the theme
    the figures at that point aside from scourge should be simple to figure out if this is the case
    cus personally for this sort of line id need the leader of that speed planet herself Override
    after that maybe some racing style diaclone since that was what was deciphered, and i decided to check the last page and i saw someone mention hauler and burnout, so i can see those
    maybe as a random one clampdown so we have all the lambros done
    there's most likely some blurr repaint, considering how crazy the year's mainline is i wouldnt be surprised if it was a weird Armada blurr repaint from maybe punch since he's around, or even that pointblank listed
    after that, idk

    There's been enough clues that support Burn Out and Hauler that they're pretty much confirmed at this point.

    and for the last 2 cyphers
    #2 Key Zetar = links to the cast of cybertron on wikipedia
    Credit to @CarefreeAmnesiac for cracking this one
    obviously cyberton related, my guess is an override/ nitro convoy partial from ss86 blurr

    #3 Key Galvatron = and this is a link to a pdf on a honda 5 speed manual transmisson and features a pic of a gear shift
    not entirely sure about this cause i know diddly squat about cars but gear shift = Gears?? if thats the right conclusion i wanna say red herring.. its either this or magna convoy i think the cybertron one is legit.

    and now we're done here.

    i cant post images or links cause it thinks im spamming :oops:

    Then Hasbro dun goofed. They could easily make Machine Wars Optimus Prime the Optimus Prime for the year in the future and make the full Thunderclash his Selects/exclusive repaint. If Thunderclash was only released as a cab without his trailer/battlestation, Hasbro will miss a big opportunity.

    also with all of my guesses or cracked ones i can give ideas on the mold reuses:
    rid scourge = legacy laser prime obviously
    Burnout = Skids
    Hauler = Grapple (finally)

    Guesses:
    Blurr = Pointblank
    Clampdown = Red alert (kingdom)
    Override = weird one, but im thinking it might be a retool of ss86 hot rod, just to throw a spanner in the works rather than be blurr

    Road rocket = might be prime arcee remolded slightly to be less feminine

    And likely a Road Rocket (or less likely Road Pig).

    I don't see how you'd get a good Road Rocket out of Prime Arcee. Why not just do Flamewar or Flare-up?

    So, filtering in Impulse Drive's hints, we have:
    • Burn-Out ("burnout")
    • Hauler ("haul ass")
    • Road Rocket ("road rip")
    • Scourge ("scourge")
    • Gears ("crab")
    And we're waiting on confirmation of "stargazing" but it may be a UT character? Where did the Magna Convoy talk come from? Is he the other Voyager?

    I think one of the bigger misconceptions some collectors make is that "kids won't care..." yes cool toys are cool toys, but kids know what's up. And I don't consider G1 fans a minority. WFC was a gamechanger and brought back (or in) old fans who weren't moved by anything since their childhood. It's smart business to retain them by continuing to build out that universe with the same aesthetic. I'm G1 biased, but feel this is fairly objective given the success of the line.

    Now, if I was a TFP fan I might feel jilted a little but with G1-ification but if the character sells I believe that could be a gateway to more stylized versions accurate to the originals. There's plenty of time.

    You're going to hate me, but Magna Convoy (the Diaclone guy) is not the hint. The figure is however present in that commercial.
