    I don't know if this deserves its own thread or not, but there are still two figures unaccounted for. They are deluxe figures code named "Blue Light"/"Unknown Hero" and "Mercenary"/"Raider". These code names come from Nevermore's awesome thread that lists all the upcoming figures.

    "Blue Light"/"Unknown Hero" sounds like an Autobot.

    "Mercenary"/"Raider" sounds like it could be Barricade or the Decepticon from the Bumblebee movie.

    I heard there was a third leader class as well, right?

    EDIT: There's also "KSI Sentry" and "Destroyer", but I'm guessing everyone knows "Destroyer" is likely Bonecrusher.

    Actually, has there even been a Decepticon that turned good, besides Jetfire and Drift? Could the "Unknown Hero" actually be someone who switched sides?

    As for Raider/Mercenary, I'd imagine Barricade would be the most logical suspect. Mercenary could have been Lockdown, but he's already official.

    And I do believe there was also a rumored 3rd leader. My bet's on the Fallen or Jetfire, as those would make the most sense, scale wise.

    Supposedly there's an Ironhide coming in Studio Series. Could he match with one of these?

    As an unknown? Well, I guess we could speculate on what kind of weapons he'll come with and what movie he'll represent. I'm really hoping his BFGs and like maybe dual pistols and a rifle.

    There was an Ironhide listed for wave 3 Voyager, as well as a TF2 Starscream who was listed as a wave 4 Voyager.

    These four unknown listings are for deluxes. Bonecrusher is not going to happen as a Deluxe because that make everything the Studio Series line strives for redundant.
    No. KSI Sentry, Destroyer, Raider/Mercanary, and Blue Light are all deluxes in wave 3.

    I cannot recall Ironhide’s codename, but he is the single voyager in wave 3. ROTF Starscream is the single voyager in wave 4. If I recall correctly, the only unknown figures are the four wave 3 deluxes. There isn’t anything else coming after that. @Nevermore knows.

    I'm just hoping for the following,

    Deluxe TF1 Barricade
    Deluxe ROTF Sideswipe
    Deluxe DOTM Soundwave
    Voyager TF1 Bonecrusher
    Leader DOTM Shockwave

    Somehow I feel Destroyer was just Thundercracker.

    Was there anything in the speculation that the SS Voyager Prime had a bunch of tabs and ports otherwise unused by his transformation that might be used for a combined mode with an unannounced Jetfire?

    I mean, it doesn't seem like the kind of thing that Hasbro would hold back, but I do recall reading comments to this effect in one of the threads on the figure.

    Otherwise I'd imagine that one of the unannounced figures is a Barricade, and the rest may be related to the Bumblebee movie.

    Ironhide never had a code name. We know about him from the Raffy Rodriguez Hasbro leak and Amazon listings, all of which called him "Ironhide" from the get-go.

    Destroyer's Hasbro product code number matches that of Bumblebee Movie Energon Igniters Nitro Series Barricade, so listing that figure as a Studio Series Voyager might have simply been an error.

    I'm wondering if "Destroyer" is a Wrecker.

    I just hope this line continues for a while, as sort of like a second "Generations" line. At the very least there are a finite number of characters / molds you can do.

    At the very least, let's get these guys figures in the next year or so:

    Autobots:
    Sideswipe
    Wheeljack / Que
    Mirage / Dino
    Jetfire

    Decepticons:
    Bonecrusher
    Barricade
    Soundwave (DOTM)
    Shockwave
    The Fallen
    Hatchet

    I'd love to get everybody, of course.

    I'm hoping that later on, the line includes characters who either never had a proper figure or are in desperate need of an update. Other than that, I would love a new Voyager Sentinel Prime and hoping that the unrevealed voyager Ironhide is the DOTM version with the 2 handheld rifles in addition to his arm cannons.

    If they could find way to make the chest tab together more securely, I would totally be on board with that.

    I'd like to see more KSI Vehicons. They may have been cannon fodder but thosd designs were some of the best in my opinion. Plus Two-Head could mean an easy Shockwave retool.
