    I don’t know where I read that after Kingdom was for Hasbro to keep releasing G1 and Beast Wars characters in future lines. I am sure we will ultimately get proper G1 versions of voyager scale Blaster and Perceptor.

    for SS86’:
    We have to get Wreckgar! Maybe Kranix?

    I’m very much looking forward to seeing Emperor Starscream!

    Something like Takara Cloud Starscream?

    Also, they are most likely not going to do Kranix since he was in the Pit of Judgement pack. Also looking forward to Coronation Starscream, as well as the deluge of "bad comedy" jokes that will be made about his jet mode, if the rumors are true.

    Nah, like a new bad ass figure. Think SS86 Grimlock instead of potp Grimlock.

    The MIG-25 is larger than the F-15, I'm saying a larger Blitzwing to match ER Starscream.

    Unfortunately, as good an idea as this is, I doubt they'd do it since they still have the Pit up for preorder on Pulse.

    So it's a fair assumption that Slag will be in SS 86 Wave 2 but do we know when the other Dinobots are coming out? Could Voyager Swoop be in the same wave as Slag?

    From what we've heard there is no SS86 wave 2, after this first batch of figures it's going to mixed waves with both live action and 86 stuff together

    Sorry I haven't been on the boards much lately so I haven't had time to read this thread yet but I'd like to post what I'm hoping for:
    I'd really like a good Blitzwing to go with Siege/Earthrise Astrotrain. At the same time, a main line Blitzwing might be better...especially if they include the Animated face-swap gimmick.

    I'll be upset they don't make a Percerptor. Jazz got a fig and Perceptor had ten times the role in the movie as Jazz. Really need a good G1 Perceptor.

    Now would be the perfect time to retool Soundwave into Blaster.

    Junkions would be great. Especially if they are modular with different parts options so you could make a whole crew with varied heads and limbs.

    Honestly this line gives them the opportunity to go completely nuts if they want to. With Jazz getting a fig and only having a few lines in the movie, that puts the possiblity of anything on the table from Insecticons to Devastator.

    Junkions are coming as Voyagers, can't remember if they do the modular thing. Blaster is supposedly coming in 2022, although I personally hope he's not a straight Soundwave retool so that he can be as tall as Prime, turn into his original tape deck, and have better proportions (I like Soundwave, but his chest door looks too big on him to me, while a taller Blaster could pull it off). Devastator was talked about but decided against, no plans on Percy that we know of, Blitzwing is out for now since Astrotrain had those boots supposedly so that he could go with the TR triple-changers. As for the Insecticons, there are no plans that we know of, but we know they have ideas for Shrapnel since he was in the ER fan vote.

    I'd buy those. Skipped both because of superfluous accessories and detailing.

    OK then, let me rephrase that. Is there any chance of Swoop and Slag being in the same wave?

    Or we could get a new Blaster mold...?

    Since Slag will be a Leader and Swoop would be a Voyager, they wouldn't be competing for each other's space. I'd say there's a good chance.

    It's possible.

    However, we have had a listing for Slag and Gnaw (and maybe wreckgar?), but I believe none for Swoop yet. This suggests that they wouldn't be released at the same time.

    Hopefully we'll find out more soon!

    Depending if there is a Hasbro Pulsecon, I wonder if there will be an exclusive that is from one of the scenes. Like a Battle of Unicron with Hot Rod, and maybe Kingdom Galvatron.

    I feel like it's going to be a Fan First Friday since Star Wars is getting one soon and they wouldn't be doing that if there were going to be a large convention for reveals any time soon.

    Are the deluxe sized Insecticons still happening? Because I'd love to get my hands on those...
