    I'll get Ratchet on deep clearance. Swap the heads and chestplate with recent SS. Swaps all the clear windows but windscreen for painted plastic. Just like I did with Ironhide. No need for Brawn at all.

    The autobot 5-pack with Hound is technically SS86 Sunstreaker.

    Would love to see Grapple! Wouldn't the "Alternate takes" ones be better as exclusives or released in the line that replaces Legacy?

    Several Generations releases of the past 5 or 6 years could "technically" count as SS86. However as we have seen, Hasbro is intent on seemingly releasing every character from TF:TM, in a SS86 packaging, even if their most recent Mainline Generations release fits perfectly. You can certainly bet that in 2026 for TF:TM 40th we'll get a slight repaints of Kingdom Cyclonus, Galvatron, and Rodimus Prime (will be the CC for that year), all in SS86 packaging, They should be wrapping up SS86 by the end of 2026 I would think.

    I think this is a silly prediction, but an SS86 Leader Galvatron is on the leak list, so who knows? Two years from now at least one of us will look silly.

    SS86 exclusives, I suppose.

    I point out Sunstreaker because that 5-pack is his animation repaint already. If they do him again, it would just be a slight variation of the 5-pack repaint release, I guess. How many times do we think they'll roll out the same figures with varying degrees of deco just for the sake of Studio Series? The only ones they've done so far have been Target exclusives and I can't think of any other cases where they've done this at full retail. Springer is about the closest and he at least received new tooling. It would be like releasing ER Cliffjumper again in SS86 - again after already receiving the Buzzworthy SS86 treatment. Instead, I think we'll get a retool of SS86 for another SS86 Cliffy. Likewise, any other redos will have new tooling.

    Im pretty sure (Buzzworthy aside) the SS86 Cliffjumper that was a repaint of ER will be the SS86 definitive one. Also we just got SS86 Blaster from Kingdom/Legacy Blaster, so yeah, everything is on the table. That's why I groan. We just got Gears, so you can bet in 2-3 years it will be released again in SS86 packaging. Also the upcoming Leader Soundwave is another frustration, since it STILL isnt SS86, so yet another will be coming.

    That 86 Bumblebee is gonna be retooled into every mini-bot imaginable. That 86 Cliffjumper's days are numbered.

    They need a hoist toon deco. He's the only one left that you can't really fix the battle damage on without messing up the paint

    I mean I could see another pack but not sure which figures can go with him but I think a standard 86 Prowl would be better

    I can't help but think Hasbro is going to give the Datsuns one more crack by taking a cue from the Masterpiece figures. Every iteration manifests one step close to awesome but always falls short. We know it can be done because the Cyberverse deluxe versions are so well-done in comparison.

    Y\'know, this has to be the first time your official toy comes with a giant broken hole in it on purpose. :D

    The engineering is 90% the same and Earthrise is much better. I have both and I don't understand why people love the Cyberverse one.
