    1. Expected.
    2. Well, I suppose that would be better for scale maniacs but I still think the recent Voyager is really good.
    3. Cool.

    Very Interesting. I really hope the Galvatron will look great.
    We could probably expect a Unicron Titan class as well

    Which probably means we will get the Takara Blast Off in G2 colours.

    1. YES!! Even if I can't afford it, YES!!

    Still want a Ruination repaint, though.

    2. That's... stupid, IMO. The Voyager Brainstorm was almost perfect... they could've used this as a chance to re-release that toy with a fixed neck/Headmaster head joint. Boo.

    3. Awesome!

    TW Deluxes are supposed to be larger than the current standard, remember? I'm guessing that's how.

    Bit of a discrepancy, we are going to need clarification on this. So long as PMOP turns out to be true I will withhold the pitchforks, tar, and of course feathers:p .

    If we get G2 Takara Blast Off, we'll get the original Takara Blast Off as well. Him and Groove both will likely be a mid-2016 online exclusive like Brake-Neck and Quickslinger.

    Heck, they took Quickslinger and repainted him into Blast-Off for US retail. So what's not to say they don't release *both* online and then repaint/retool them as Strafe/Afterburer when the Technobots hit retail?

    FansProject Code is not any larger than a Deluxe, neither were the G1 Headmaster Juniors. So it can work.

    Yes, I noticed this too, but I'm guessing he may have trouble telling a large Deluxe from a small Voyager from looking at some prototypes and parts. I'll cut him some slack on +/- one size class on the final product. Size class is NOT etched on the side of a toy, and technically it's not even a size class, it's a price point. It may be a Deluxe size, Voyager priced toy.

    One problem mentioned by people in this thread is that there seemed to be too many Voyagers to make a toy line. Perhaps that's why, some of them are large Deluxes?

    I'm still really skeptical of most of these "leaks," but a slightly larger, $19.99 pricepoint "deluxe" for TW would make a lot of sense. It would follow the trend of turning Generations into basically the Transformers version of the Star Wars Black Series; TF have already resized and repriced Legends figures to match the 3.75" Black Series figures (to the point of having very similar parts counts, based on the couple of figures I've examined). I could see Deluxes going the way of the 6" Black Series, and voyagers/leaders becoming akin to the $39.99 large Black Series boxed figures.

    Oooo, Mindwipe

    Well, that piques my interest! ^^ I'm curious as to how they'll be working their headmaster gimmick in the deluxe (even a larger deluxe) scale however.

    1. Yep not surprised there.
    2. Interesting. So it's a new mold rather then a reissue. Makes sense if you want Brainstorm to fit in with the other Headmasters.
    3. Nice. :)

    *IF* TW figures cost more, is that because of size...or will they be upping the price to coincide with increased features and accessories?

    Yeah I don't any reason why Hasbro couldn't find a way to bring the Takara versions of Blast Off and Groove over and give them new names like what they did with Slingshot and Wildrider. If anything it would give people who aren't able to afford the UW versions another chance.
