    Shouldn't blaster get a new mold? Soundwave and Soundblaster didn't share a mold in the original g1 toyline. They're robot modes looks different enough to warrant a new mold. Blaster is also a pretty notable character to warrant a new mold. They're alt mode are pretty different as well. A boom box dimensions are pretty different from a tape deck. I dont really see how retooling could fix that.

    If blaster ends up not getting made then I’m glad I got unique toys soundmixer when bbts had him for like $30, goes really well with the earthrise stuff. Downside is no tape minions

    Good to know I just figured a bit random to put G1 inferno in the beasts series instead of the beast infetnoy

    Maybe they’re setting them up to be the same character?

    He could be in studio 86.

    This just got me wondering say if studio 86 is going to be doing some of the seasons 1-3 cast that were on the movie, and this is purely speculative but say future non beast lines could be headmasters onwards as people are wondering: that may limit G1 characters in wfc to the following
    Inferno
    Skids
    Tracks
    Octane
    Broadside
    Sandstorm

    With studio 86 having the following that have not been announced
    The rest of the dinobots
    Blaster
    Brawn
    Perceptor
    A new Magnus
    Wreck gar
    Blitzwing
    And Insecticons

    Of course this goes out the window if rodimus prime is indeed in wfc3

    Was BW inferno a S1 character? (I honestly don’t remember, I watched BW in fits and starts 20 years ago) - seems like most of the focus (going off the poster) will be core S1 characters. I imagine G1 Inferno was more pre-planned as the obvious Grapple retool, maybe they just figure to confusing to have 2 characters with the same name.

    the 6 episodes/season format seems too short for them to have G1 Inferno do a heel-turn.

    He is a season 1 character, but he wasn't there from the beginning. They do have Tigatron, Blackarachnia, and Airazor on the poster though who were all added during the course of season 1 as well.

    Maybe they'll do an Inferno two pack. They're both red so Target would scoop it up.

    So many possibilities for the next wave and beyond. So many repaints of tracks and inferno if those ever come to be. So many curve balls being thrown from every direction. So many things I didn’t know I wanted

    With the new Soundwave coming with retools of Laserbeak and Ravage, I wonder if we can expect a Selects Spy Patrol 4: Buzzsaw, Glit, Garboil, and Howlback?

    Hasbro TT would be silly not to release more or rather ALL of the cassettes before the hype for them wears off etc

    I agree with this - - additionally, Twincast gives Blaster one repaint....

    That's a good point about Blaster in the SS 1986 lineup.

    I don't know but what if he's in ER or a gen selects cause with Thrust out if the main retail release and a potential exclusive we are back to 2 missing ER Voyager class figures assuming Cyclonus is also SS.

    Also true he's not really a remold of Soundwave and a new mold would open up the door for Twincast.

    Thrust is an Earthrise figure. The Inferno coming out in Kingdom has been confirmed to be G1. This would be the last wave to include micromasters on store shelves, which means if they're going to do Blaster they either need to do him soon or make him an exclusive. Since Ramhorn at the very least would have to be a new mold, I doubt that his cassettes would be a selects release.

    Hmmm. Maybe red visor with Buzzsaw? I prefer yellow myself but give him Buzzsaw as a pack in and I’m sold.

    It's a shame to see them scrapping Micromasters after Earthrise finishes. I was hoping we'd see the Micromaster lineup completed.

    Im sure the next few years are already planned out but I think that a Commander Class Deathsaurus / Deszaras would be great! It could appeal to both G1 purists and BW fans, he could bridge the gap and help the two sides find peace. 20200718_105257.jpg
