So the Autobots are presumably for the Masquarade themed Stunticons set to go with the Prime then?

Wreck-Gar from Groove? I suppose it makes sense in terms of there being limited bike repaints.

No Mainframe or Grotusque though?*

















*If you're not reading the comics, IDW think these two boys are in the Protectobots. Not in a one panel mistake kind of way, but for two issues solid kind of a way.

Weird - I'd figured they'd try finding a replacement for Blast Off, but they do still own the trademark I suppose. And a new Trailbreaker? Too soon, Hasbro. Too soon.

But how can they homage a mediocre episode without him?

Hey I liked Aerial Assault - that purple griffon was Megatron's finest accomplishment!

But hey, maybe we'll get lucky and they give Blast an actually appropriate vehicle form to go with his unit, like a stealth bomber or something.

Hasbro's scratching that combiner itch hardcore this past year. Thus far I have none, but they look genuinely fun.

Wheeljack, Smokescreen and Trailbreaker---I wonder if they'll be original moulds or retools from existing ones? Might as well be combiner retools.

I would go nuts for a new Grotusque, accidental Protectobot or not.

At a guess, Smokescreen will probably be a redeco of the Prowl we heard about earlier. Wheeljack shares most of his transformation with Lightspeed, so I'd expect the two of them to share a mold if the long-rumoured Technobots come to pass.

Prowl is a retool [new head] from First Aid. It looks badass

Smokescreen from that would look odd, but certainly possible.

Actually, there's no solid proof that Prowl is a retool of First Aid. All there is pointing to that is the line art or whatever of First Aid showing him with Prowl-like horn things on his head. Which could very easily be Ratchet-like horn things instead.

I want to know who Thunderhoof (really?) is. That's all I'm curious about.

I still say "Thunderhoof" sounds like a My Little Pony character.

My Little Pony and Transformers are Hasbro's top two brands at the moment...

Am I alone in being amused that we may get a new Prowl from Streetwise and a new Ratchet from First Aid?

He's one of the new RiD Decepticons. There are a few that are pretty heavily based of animals. Just look for the robot with antlers.

This guy. Played as a bit of a US old-style gangster type in the show.

To sound like a pokemon, it'd have to be abbreviated to something like "Thundoof".

Toys R Us has listings now for Quickslinger and Brake-Neck. Brake-Neck makes me think the colors are mis-adjusted on my monitor. Looks like a terrible digibash.

There's boxart for the Platinum reissue of Trypticon.

My only concern is where the hell am I gonna get this shipped to or within Europe? Specifically at non-scalper prices...

Trypticon looks bitching.

Until you actually open the box and find a nearly 30 year old toy that has 2 or so points of articulation

If I were you I'd wait until Kapow gets their in/up for preorder, for shipping within Europe etc. That would avoid all customs charges

My hope with Typticon is that they kept the internal motor for the various gimmicks, although knowing Hasbro it's a 50/50 chance there.

I'm not really concerned that the only real points of articulation are his arms. Like many people I've wanted him since I was a kid. Here is a chance to own him.
