    I agree, the other things sound really cool and I'd love to have them, but they're either deconfirmed or seem too unrealistic for Studio Series.

    I think he only listed the things actually getting singular releases, but I could be wrong.

    I'm not sure, but I know he has the Coronation gear plus remolded intakes+wings. I would love for him to have the head that was on Skywarp, but I have heard zero info about his head sadly.

    Well, maybe there could be a possibility of Blitzwing and the Insecticons before 2024. The rest you're definitely right about.

    Scored a HOT ROD at Target, WOW! Still waiting for the rest from PULSE. Is there a SS86 Appreciation Thread?

    I wonder if we’ll get Springer reissued or a even more screen accurate version.......or eventually Constructicon Updates (The ROTF separate releases proves its possible to release Devastator in his component parts, and G1 has less members, just 6)......

    We also need a Leader Class (or Voyager + like Astrotrain) of Blitzwing


    More Quintessons would also be nice

    I kinda see Hasbro Reissuing that old Supreme Class G1 Retooled Unicron again for those who can’t afford the Haslabs Version

    There was a rumor about a clean springer in selects but it was fake.

    Apparentely it's not happening

    There are no current plans to make SS releases for Springer, Arcee, or Magnus, since SS86 is meant to complement WFC anyway. The constructicons were supposedly discussed, but shelved. No plans for Blitzwing that we know of through 2022 since Astrotrain had those boots to go with TR Blitzwing and Octane, I believe the Ironhide repaint is unfortunately the only Quint item we're getting unless you count Gnaw, and personally I doubt that they'd release Unicron again since he's kinda too much for Commander, but not enough for Titan.

    I'd personally love even a repaint with some gaps filled for an Arcee SS release, the paint and gaps are literally the only thing stopping me from getting the ER one. I know it's deconfirmed, but I would buy that. I'm interested to see what they would do with Devastator, but the scale issues stop me from being fully excited.

    Arcee, Springer, and Magnus are understandable since they just got some pretty solid, although slightly flawed, toys. However, Blitzwing is a bit of a disappointment. I really wish Hasbro would give him another go as I think they could do a better job than the TR version.

    Devastator is kind of a surprise. Hasbro worked with some dark magic to give us some pretty fantastic figures of the ROTF Constructicons. All of the work, love, and detailing that went into the ROTF Constructicons makes me wish Hasbro would’ve done a SS G1 Devastator.

    They more or less released Cybertron Primus as a titan in the TLK line, wouldn't put it past them to do that for Unicron too, but at the same time I think the Haslab one will be the only one for the foreseeable future

    I'd love that! The Burden Hardest to Bear is one of my favorite G1 episodes, and it would just make my day to see that monstrosity in toy form.

    A new Blitzwing in SS86 would be great. Preferably if his MIG-25 altmode was in scale with Starscream's F-15....

    ....and his robot mode had more beef to it and no headmaster 20210119_163754.jpg

    This isn't the place for it, but... Wow. Legends Blitzwing is BEAUTIFUL. I need to get myself one of the TR ones, and QUICK.
