    That is how I would go about it yeah. Plus you would have to mix mechanical animals with organic to keep it interesting.

    i believe that is just wishful thinking rather then an actual rumor but I could be wrong.

    I never heard we were supposed to get a repaint of HotSpot into Car Robots Prime. Source please?
    As for the headmaster, there's enough space between above HotSpot's head and his arms in vehicle mode for a headmaster port.. It would work

    I'd be willing to accept more techno looking BW characters if it lead to Predaking, Abominus, Piranacon, etc.

    And that's actually a really clever idea, as it would give them the opportunity to hit on the classic beast combiners, and have options to reuse molds as BW characters.

    Yeah it just makes economic sense, and I want to see a modernized cybernetic gorilla:D .

    What I need is a Powermaster Optimus Prime (sans Bomber armor: that's all you 3rd party) to go against my combiner wars leader class "super" Megatron:D . For me if all the rumors turn out to be false except regarding Power master Optimus I will still walks away from Titan Wars a VERY happy fan.

    Please look like this:

    It was way back when Hot Spot was first revealed, I'll try to find it but as it was only a rumor the source may be long gone.

    Though there is, oddly enough, precedence for this idea. Back in 2008, the limited Titanium 6" repaints featured a Hot Zone, who is for all intents and purposes Hot Spot, and he was a repainted RID Optimus Prime.

    If I'm understanding the "new" headmaster gimmick rumor correctly, it's not so much a "port" as it will be the little guy fitting into an existing, attached helmet, the gimmick being swapable faces.

    However, this also points out a reason why Sentinel probably would be his own mold should he be a headmaster: the "head" robot needs to fit into the alt. mode driver seat. There's no place for this on the Hot Spot mold due to the vehicle cabin being where the feet go.

    Transmetals, anybody?

    Though this also means Transmetal Rubber Ducky. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    If it was RID Optimus, then this actually is a good thing. The task probably would fall to third party, but RID Optimus Prime could combine with RID Ultra Magnus into Omega Prime. If Hot Spot got retooled into RID Prime, the existing torso mode would make an excellent base to build off of in making combinable UM limb parts with the pre-existing CW ports being universal in design.

    If we got an RID Optimus from Hot Spot, it would save me the trouble of having to get White Prime for Wheeljack, Trailbreaker, Hound, et al.

    And ditto for wanting an updated Powermaster Optimus Prime. It's the one version of Optimus out of the umpteen that I've always wanted. Bonus points if we get that little extra U-Haul trailer.

    YES I like this.

    It would have made sense but the rumour is that he's a Leader class and a headmaster. Two things the Hot Spot mold is not.

    I don't even like 3rd party but that'd be cool.

    Here's the current rumor:

    So, yes on Headmaster, no on Leader.

    I sincerely hope the rumor about the helmets proves to be unfounded, or else restricted to the leader class for wich such an emphasis on microplay would make more sense. Such unnecessary extra tooling can only cause extra cost-cutting. And now Hasbro is actually going to give us the Original Headmasters and in Voyager size at that, i want them to be the best they can be.

    I also hope the Deluxe class stays the size it is. Hasbro needs to pick a size and stick to it, and if that means raising the price once in a while, it'll still beat third party prices.

    Totally agree I don't want to keep resetting deluxe every couple of years.

    While I hate that Galvatron will be a headmaster, if he looks cool and better than that his last toy, Im down. Voyager is great size for him. Looking forward to this line...

    You know for me out of all the features to have (lights and sound, spring loaded punching action, spring loaded transformation, sling loaded deployer etc.) a headmaster/Targetmaster gimmick seems the least intrusive.

    I generally agree with you, but I can't quite visualize Galvatron's head looking "right" to me in Headmaster form. I hope I'm wrong, but it also seems remediable*

    *when Renderform, Dr Wu, or PE makes a new head for us :D

    ^^ Depending on how intrusive the gimmick is a third party replacement could be a good idea...

    1. Combiner Wars (yes a Combiners Wars rumor!) will have a G2 Bruticus boxed set.
    2. Titan Wars Headmaster Brainstorm will be a Deluxe, not the Generations Voyager mold.
    3. Titan Wars Decepticon Headmasters will include Mindwipe and Weirdwolf.

    Finally, some more rumors.

    1. Yes! I wonder if we'll get a G2 Defensor box set as well!

    2. Well... That's unexpected. I do wonder how they're gonna make the headmaster work at that scale.

    3. That's pretty good. All we need is Skullcruncher and the original trio of Headmaster Decepticons will be complete.
