    I'd say that the Laserbeak repaint is where Buzzsaw will appear.

    Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing, as we may see some kind of toy release soon (perhaps even alongside Buzzsaw?).

    If Tankor ends up being a repaint/retool of the Warpath mold, I will be a happy camper.

    Tankor will be a repaint of Voyager DOTM Megatron with a new head, that's my prediction.

    Buzzsaw is almost certainly the repaint/new head of DOTM Laserbeak.

    I'm curious if this will coincide with a new campaign like HFTD or NEST

    i'd put money on this being for a toyline a la HFTD. just think about it. we could have 3 lines going at once (Prime, Generations (assuming its continuing beyond Black Shadow and Junkheap) and anothe movie-offshoot line)!

    Tankor wil likely either be a repaint of warpath or DOTM Voyager Megs (new head either way). Buzzsaw as clearly renewed for the laserbeak remold

    Oh, right, I forgot that Tankor was also an alternate name for Octane...

    I loved that Tankor figure.

    Not at all show accurate, but a solid and awesome figure.

    It'll probably be a deluxe Brawl repaint, since RotF saw a legends Tankor which was a light blue Brawl.

    If Tankor isn't a new mold based on the Beast Machines Vehicon I'll be saddened.
    Even if a silly repaint is inevitable, I'll still be disappointed. After all, NONE of the Vehicons got good toy representations at the time (aside from those tiny scouts), and a new mold Tankor would be awesome.

    Honestly, the Warpath mold, if not heavily remodded, will just be Warpath repaint.

    BLAH!

    I'd rather see hardhead that Tankor out of Warpath. do we really need to be reminded that Beast Machines existed?

    Hmm. Buzzsaw is probably for the Laserbeak repaint (The one Shadow tipped us off about), and Tankor could either be a Voyager Megatron repaint (TankOR truck?), or a repaint of any recent tank. (Darkmount? Warpath?)

    Speak for yourself. I personally loved the designs of the Vehicons and see any homage (or potentially new figure) as a god-send.

    Should be interesting to see what they use the Tankor name for this time. Maybe it's something Generations related this time? or who knows, maybe it's one of the new cons showing up in TFP season 2.

    We already got a Hardhead though.

    Also, because it makes you cry. :D

    I would actually be extremely happy with a Brawl redeco as Tankor. I didn't get the Legends mold but I loved the deco on it.

    Tankor = Octane = Voyager Megatron retool = ICK. No interest in that.

    Tankor would be a decent nameslap for a Voyager of that monstrous four-legged 'con from the Chicago battle. His kibble indicates some kind of military vehicle.

    You sir are onto something. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be true. I can spot Tank-like parts on the bot as well. :)
