    I have all those G1 bots including a very mint Trypticon but I'd love to see this happen for 2 reasons:

    1) Everyone should own a Trypticon.
    2) Reissue Trypticon could mean reissue Scorpy, Star Sabre, etc down the road.

    As I said nothing new for me but if they're doing G1 reissues again, I'm VERY happy.

    Regarding Devastator having a leader (old Ultra class) I am speculating that the leader will be Long Haul and Prowl will be a voyager + 5 other Voyagers.

    As much as I want Tryp, I also hope he comes out at the very tail end of the year
    My wallet (and my wife) won't let me make another giant toy purchase so soon

    i want my devastator composed of 6 OR MORE CONTRUCTICONS, there is no room in my heart for a PROWL-stator
    maybe a prowl as an optional but not as a MAIN part of the set

    Well, A 5 piece Devastator would allow me to continue the trend of not buying anything from CW, but anything other than 6 members misses the point by a mile.

    Did what we've seen from CW so far result in a flood of Intimidator and Uranos on eBay?

    I'm not being sarcastic. Honestly, i don't know. Nor am i inferring what Hasbro are doing is 'inferior' to what 3P companies are doing, but so far the differences are very apparent.

    So a G1 Trypticon as a Hasbro platinum release huh? So I guess getting an Encore version is out the window then, too bad.

    That would be nice so I could own TFC devy at a nice low price but I doubt it. Even if this devy ends up being huge, I'm sure he'll be like the current CW stuff with terrible hands and feet and not looking the part when combined. But I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    That some will sell their GG and/or Hercs? Yes. But a flood of them? Highly doubtful

    Oh God I just wanna see how this set is gonna look Superion was a hit while Menasor what we've seen in pics was kind of a miss (plus no damn Wildrider) so im skeptical to say the least.

    I hope this doesn't mean there are only five team members,
    but with the one leader thing, chances are one constructicon will make the body, and another four for the limbs

    How long till Toy Fair again? I'm dying to see what this guy actually looks like, if only to end all the speculation.

    LEADER!!! Maybe Megatron is compatible with them, and is being repainted in...

    ...Or it's long Haul. I hope he comes with all other five Constructicons. And unless Not-RID becomes good, any potential Prowl head had better be an optional addition.

    Lol nope. Considering how I am frothing at the mouth at Uranos as of recent and want nothing to do with Hasbro's Superion whatsoever.

    I actually almost wish the price(s) would come down more for Uranos because of this CW stuff arrrgh

    Here's hoping hasbro's devy will be half decent. I would love to see it actually. But am scared. Here's hoping!

    wow.. my hope of devastator being awesome has decreased immensely.. it sounds like there will only be 5 robots.. that's awful if it's true.

    someone talk me off the ledge.

    30 years have gone by and we still can't get a proper 6 member devastator?

    I hope Devastator isn't only five members. There's simply no reason for that.

    As for Trypticon, bring him on!
