    Personally i'd like Terrorsaur to be voyager class. To me he was like the Starscream of the Beast Wars Predacons. Recolor him twice, one blue and one black, and you got yourself a set of Beast Wars seekers.

    Some more tidbits of info from Catz.

    Leader Megatron’s mold will be reused somewhere, the reuse though is not the 3rd Netflix leader.

    The siege Seeker mold is going to be used again somewhere. He wasn’t specific on who the character is, or if it will be apart of Kingdom as an exclusive, selects, or Netflix.

    My speculation on what I think some of the Exclusives will be is:

    -Earth Mode Hound-
    -Earth Mode Red Alert-
    -Earth Mode Sideswipe-
    -Earth Mode Mirage-

    Pratty much finishes off the Autobots from Siege plus fits the whole Exclusives being re-molds.

    -Hauler/Artfire-

    Pretty easy figures to make out of Inferno/Grapple, although they might not happen base on Grapple shelf warming. Can't help but think Inferno might have been an Exclusive had they knew how poor Grapple was going to sell

    Speaking of shelf warming, that might be one of the reasons they are holding back on Beast Wars Inferno. His OG toy sold so poorly, his Transmetal toy got rename to Scvanger (which also sold really poorly sadly)

    Other potential BW Megatron repaints beside T-Wrecks include...

    Toy accurate colors
    Shattered glass colors (Megatron in Primal’s colors)

    Out of all them, T-wrecks is definitely the one I would want the most.

    Yeah, T-wrecks is my pick too, seems like the easiest and most straight forward.
    If I had to guess, it could be Siege coneheads like the Netflix trailer.

    I wouldn't buy it myself, but I could see them releasing a more realistically coloured version (not purple, not red) of the Megs T-Rex mould as G1 Grimlock.

    I don't think they're "overwriting" the original, moreso giving a representation that looks close enough like the character and appeases the "it isn't a transformer if it can't transform" crowd. I'm betting good money that, if Kingdom succeeds, they're doing a Transmutate RED figure to go with the crew. This may also be to secure the copywrite for the name, like all those UT minicons named Shockwave

    To put it plainly, exclusives allow Hasbro to release more product than the typical 4 wave mainline. More product means more sales. More sales means more profit. Plus most exclusives are simple retools or redecos, so they're easy product to create as the base tooling already exists, there is a higher return on investment for each subsequent use of a mold

    G2 Ramjet has already been confirmed as a thing. Think that was Apillilion but I imagine that's what he means

    I dont think he's arguing with you at all. He seems to be giving logical reasons for his stances. If anything it seems that you can't accept someone with a differing opinion and are borderline attacking the person and not the point now.

    When I asked him specifically about Needlienose he said there was no sign of a new Needlenose, so that's ambiguous enough for it to be possible!

    I don’t see them going for 'toy colors' unless the toy has a really different look (or atleast desirable enough). Primal seems more toy colored and Megs is more toon inspired. I think we only got confirmation of a toy version of BA. I would love a toy BW Megs as I vastly prefer the lilac over the purple.

    But as it stands, my bets are on T-Wrecks.
