    I think there's a fair chance that Shockwave, like Magnus, will be re-purposed engineering originally designed for a potential PotP figure - and will thus be Voyager-ish with power armor that makes him Leader-sized.

    Hey! TR Cosmos has a red plastic head(instead of white painted red), and his green is darker...

    Believe me, I do agree with most of your points, I’m just playing devils advocate simply because of the vocabulary you used :p  while making him compatible with battletrap does open up repaint potential the theme of siege seems to be modular weaponry and we have no known con weaponizers at the moment. Between all the options I am most hoping for battletrap style, but hasbro has thrown curveballs before (one example being “all new” targetmaster molds when they have access to the already made takara legends targetmasters)

    Also two legends as a deluxe makes perfect sense, especially since they just did that with the clones and even did 3 minicons as a deluxe during thrilling 30.

    Oh I'm sure they won't. I meant along with the Duocon gimmick. He's a Duocon, and splits into guns.
    I can also do that with a piece of paper and glue. ;) 
    Hasbro, at one point during SDCC, stated that for WFC, they're only using a gimmick if it fits the character. They also stated that they're bringing the "Scale" feature of Studio Series over to Generations, and this line will have varying sized figures within each size class to make them be in "proper scale" with each other. It's quite possible Shockwave is actually a shorter Leader Class figure, but has some extra engineering for whatever reason that requires him to be sold as a Leader Class figure. We'll see.
    That could be a cool theme for NYCC. Decepticons took over NYCC and are showing off the awesome new toys of themselves.

    The same engineering style can also be used for Slamdance, Legout, Decibal, Squawkbox. There is so much potential. I really hope Hasbro doesn't cheap out and just make Skytread a weaponizer.

    Landcross's name actually showed up in one of those Titans Return leaks a couple of years ago, and there's still a few characters from that list that haven't gotten a toy since it leaked. He's definitely a character I'd like to see a new toy of.

    If you guys really wanted to know what the pic looked like, here it is (Can you guess all the references?):

    I wonder what alt-mode Megatron would be. It would probably be a tank, but it could also be a helicopter, taking cues from Animated just like how Ultra Magnus took influence from RID Magnus.

    I probably wouldn't buy that, but it would be a nice departure from him being a tank. Maybe they should make him a tanker truck like DOTM Megatron. :D

    Absolutely this. There are ways to do it without straying too far from the concept introduced by Battletrap.

    That can change quickly given Hasbro seems to have specifically only shown us Autobots.

    Also, maybe Autobots get Deluxe Weaponizers because Decepticons got the Duocons?

    If they do Landcross, I'm afraid it's gonna get the Liokaiser treatment and just be repaints of CW figures. Tackle would probably just be an orange repaint of Off-Road. I really hope they would be done properly.

    So what you’re saying is that we don’t actually know anything about the cons in this line because hasbro has deliberately kept us in the dark, and saying things in a manner that make it seem like a 100% certaintity despite a lack of information isn’t the best policy ;) 

    Just like abominus and volcanicus and starscream were all repaints of combiner wars molds right?

    Since this is early days of the war, I could see Megatron being a tracked mining vehicle modified for combat. Like an auger or bulldozer with extra armour and guns bolted on. Kinda like the Colorado Killdozer.

    Theres this thing from Avatar. Paint it silver and give it a big on gun ontop and you’ve got yourself an early war Megatron.

    That's a really cool idea, it would certainly make for a unique version of Megs.
