    Or going the Takara route of having them as Cybertronians back in 1987.

    How do you get a hosehead in wfc, I thought that there could be a chance of him being made because apeface...but...inferno exists, why would you make two molds in the same line that are both fire trucks, with one being a headmaster. come to think of it, why would cybertron need fire trucks? they don't have any water on the planet, how are they going to put out fires?

    Ooh I didn't know that, neat.

    Personally I always found the idea of Headmasters as humans (or Nebulans, whatever) a bit iffy as while I know it's meant to be more of a fusion sort of thing it's always felt a bit too much like you've got these cool independent sentient, sapient robots being reduced to being piloted by a human/Nebulan.
    I don't mind the concept so much when it goes along with Transtectors though as the bodies are specifically not sentient beings.

    Well, they have Rust so logically they might have water somewhere. But then the TF universe has 'cosmic rust' so maybe water isn't necessary. They might also have oceans or lakes with liquids other than water.
    That said, fires can be put out in ways other than just with water and I imagine fires are just as likely to break out as on Earth so firefighters also make sense.

    Oh also, the rumble frenzy mold could probably double as a powermaster mold, am I the only one who could see this working

    but that's a techo organic cybertron

    but how do we get a wfc hosehead without the guy being overshadowed by inferno

    Selects Nightbird is WFC-GS07 and Zetar is WFC-GS08, we still don't know who WFC-GS04 is... It could be Hotshot or Cromar.

    I looked it up in the wiki. The substance is called imagination. Not trying to be rude, just teasing. But really, I personally think Hasbro has broad ideas in place on the setting and format for WFC but there will be exceptions and that’s okay. Ultimately we just want cool figures and the rest is just explained away.

    First look at Astrotrain's Fully combined gun mode and "armor" mode. It's just boots and a backpack.

    Again, you're making no convincing arguments. @barry has made good ones. You might want to learn from example, because if you just want us to take your word on it, it's your word vs Hasbro's, and they're the ones that make the things. =/

    Could we possibly see both quickmix, landfill and maybe even scoop eventually, the decepticon double targetmasters need their counterparts
