    Yea I was thinking thats the case cause the only other option Would be the G1 Horrorcons and Doubledealer cause their the only Beastformers in WFC that exist at the moment. Not sure who they can be repainted into.

    Either that or they reach back into some Prime Wars moulds like the TR beast Headmasters or some Legends class Insecticons.

    If this had been how potp rodimus turned out I would be less hungry for a new rodimus figure now.

    Selects Pyro from Inferno would be tight, I really hope that's on their radar over boring old Fartfire, ha! Got eem!

    There's three basic options I can think of

    1. Kingdom molds. Straightforward, easy to deal with, but Hasbro isn't huge on having the same mold on sale at the same time in multiple channels. So, maybe, depends on how long the Odyssey sets last for.

    2. PW molds. Synergy with the (rumored) Headmaster re-issues if it's, say, Grotusque -> Fangry and Chromedome -> Nightbeat (or whatever), super weird if it's PotP molds (I'm not seeing a 5-bot box set).

    3. Apeface and Snapdragon, probably w/TM OP/Megs decos, but some weird clone/corrupted spark type personalities so as not to conflict w/the ER/Kingdom storyline. Apelinq and Cryotek would also be super obscure options that I'd be very amused by

    Pipes is my most awaited figure in Kingdom, so I've been thinking a lot about what him (& Huffer) will look like. I'm putting him at Cliffjumper height, if not a bit taller, which means that he'll need to come with a bigger accessory. Now since Cliffjumper & his friends have the market in giant bazookas, & there's a good chance Warpath will come with a mess of weapons, what if Pipes/Huffer were to come with a "battle trailer" of sorts?

    This is going off the assumption they'll have a port to tow OP's trailer (as Huffer demonstrated in the cartoon). Also, as a homage to the micromasters we will more than likely never get, what if Huffer came with a trailer resembling Erector's (fitting since Huffer is an engineer), & Pipes' resembles Overload's car carrier sled thing (which would also fit, since Overload's alt mode resembles Pipes)? Obviously the trailers probably wouldn't be too intricate, but it would certainly be a cool play pattern for the toys.

    I dunno if that's true anymore.

    I mean, some are retools...but we've got multiple instances of the ER jet mold, the Datsun bros, and vans at various sites.

    We've also got Bugbite and Hubcap while Cliffy is still out there, as well as the Netflix line running alongside WfC.

    I've been thinking lately... we are getting practically all the 84-85 cars with great Earth Alt-modes.

    It may be a pain. But we really need an Earth mode Sideswipe and Red Alert. Remolding the top of the car and adding the spoilers would be so easy to do.

    I know rebuying practically the same mold multiple times over is painful, and I know we haven't seen them in any of the Kingdom rumors, but I really think this needs to happen somehow, someway.

    Not without redoing Tigertrack too. I'd rather have a Countach alt mode too, but not at the cost of having the guys not all match.

    Unless we get more leaders than normal there's really nowhere else for him to slot into.

    This is what I’m thinking on how the first wave of kingdom will go, judging from the leaks.

    Core:
    Rattrap, Starscream, Fossilizer

    Deluxe:
    Airrazor, Cheetor, Warpath, Ractonite (fossilizer)

    Voyager:
    Optimus Primal, Cyclonus

    Leader:
    BW Megatron, Optimus Prime (Earthrise reissue)

    The flipside of that is, the Sideswipe mold is already so close to an Earth car that it's probably not worth it/not very high priority for them to give us a retool to bring it all the way. Plus, we've already gotten not only Red Alert and Sideswipe, but also G2 Sideswipe, and Tigertracks, and even the leaked Deep Cover coming in the third Walmart Netflix wave which will probably be on the mold. I don't want to have to rebuy that many guys.

    If I could only pick one, I'd rather have a more J59-style Jeep mode for Hound, and leave Sideswipe and Mirage alone.
