    Have the POTP Dinobots but wouldn't mind selling and getting new ones if the whole team gets represented.

    Definitely looking forward to adding some BW characters to my collection. Hopefully everyone from at least the season 1 teams get represented.

    Because they need a smaller toy to fill out the package to justify a Leader price. Grimlock got Wheelie. Slag gets Daniel. Assume if they do another Dinobot, Spike will be with him. If they do the other 2 dinos, it will be another smaller or at least simpler figure. So if going on TFTM, that leaves the Lithone characters or the Quintessson characters that aren't the judges.

    I just hope they get all of these 84-86 characters perfect and out of their system so we can move on and finish 1987 and beyond (1987 just needs Ramhorn as a cassette, Steeljaw, Rewind as a cassette, Eject, the Throttlebots, Sureshot, Pointblank, Slugfest, and Overkill.)

    gyaaahh..

    Not apples to apples there bud.

    TMNT has only 4 guys to worry about, and a brand that has stayed the exact sames since its inception.

    TF has had lots of changes through the years, and "core" characters is really a basis on when you grew up with transformers. MY optimus prime, is not the same guy 10 years younger that says Prime is a monkey, or a few years different where prime is a white truck with 4 vehicle limbs.

    They keep going back to G1.

    What Im saying is take this modern engineering and go for Car robots, Beast machines, RID..Hence my "mirage as a boat" statement.

    It would be the same thing as star wars having all these movies, but ONLY making toys from the Hew hope movie.

    I guess, I found my love with the studio line with all its intricacies and small parts..I dont want some dumb ass looking Alicon to take away from a potential character, or even a repaint/retool of someone in the movie line I still want.

    Maybe this is good new in a way, Maybe hasbro is telling me, Studio is successful enough, we KNOW its going on another 3-4 years and we will release the entire cast from all movies, so we can wastes some slots for the 86 movie. Even though I still say the 86 movie has no business in the studio line. That should be WFC/ER with anniversary movie branding, or its of "netflix" line...

    Just my thoughts

    Besides Skids, Mudflap, AOE Dinos & The Fallen, is there any major characters left to do in the Bayverse SS line?

    I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH COOL STUFF IS COMING! It's like every day there's another reason that ditching MP was the right move for me.

    They could call him tuna sandwich on the box for all I care. The box is going in the recycling bin and he will be Slag on my shelf. I laugh when people who honor Hasbro's trademark based name changes like Refracktor, Skytread, and Skrapnel. We all know who they are. And while Id welcome an IDW style Fallen, Im happy with the old maketoys version. Id much rather have a ROTF Fallen even if its just a repaint of the purple and blue one in more movie accurate colors. Gwunner here and I love me some Bayverse !

    I hope they give Sludge is cartoon eyes - movie accurate!
    The City of Monzville

    If there is any justice in the world, that design will never see the light of day again.

    A dubious value if they're planning on passing off another Voyager as a Leader, at least as far as I'm concerned.

    That is true. Guess we should look on the bright side. Even a decent Voyager would be a step up from what we've gotten. :lol

    This definitely made me slam the brakes on my intention to buy the oversized KO POTP set.

    Soooo..... what do we think the chances are of new versions the rest of the Dinobots being released? I could see Sludge being a remold of Slag. And Swoop is always popular, and could maybe even be done at a Voyager price point (especially given that Leaders and Voyagers are pretty much the same size these days anyway). Which leaves Snarl.

    Hopefully Hasbro is still committed to the “team completion” thing, because it would be frustrating to have only two of the five Dinobots.

    Is it weird that I want this to be a thing? At least for Peacock Mirage?

    Also, what is a fossilizer?

    After thinking about it, the only redo I actually want right now is Devastator. The TR is fine but it’s fragile and WAY TOO BIG. I’d love a new one that’s the size of the other 20+ combiners I own...
