So now this is kinda intresting. Waspinator, Okay, most of us can probably deduct that this is Wasp, Bumblebee's rival. The question is, is this a repaint of Bumblebee, a technoorganic Wasp, or a mold based off of Bumblebee/Wasp's Cybertronian mode?

Shockwave is also intresting to me, especially if he'll have both Longarm Prime's and Shocky's face.

Smile How excited I'm for these old Transformers finally getting a chance to once again become action figures.

It's Blurr the fast talking Autobot Data Courier, the Autobot Female Warrior Arcee, and Waspinator that creepy Predacon Aerial Attacker their back whoa I thought these guys are history. And so is my favorite Decepticon Warrior Skywarp, and so is Shockwave the Decepticon Military Operations Commander, and Wreck-Gar that weirdo Autobot Junkion Leader their all back whoa the 21st century is getting better and better in my book.

Blurr, Swindle and Shockwave sound pretty awesome. Will have to see Wreck-Gar. If he's still a motorcycle it might be odd for him to be in voyager class.

Though that might be an awesome scale to give Big Grim a motorcycle (maybe it's just me, but I just thought of Grimmers on a chopper and it sounded right ).

Wreck-Gar was a garbage truck in Animated.

Ah. That's a more fitting alt mode. I'll have to see it though before I decide. Thanks for the info.

I hope Waspinator isn't based on that terrible BB mold...I think he should be yet another "bug bot".

BB repaint sounds...OK...

I want blurr and possibly Arcee. Depends on how G1-esque, the car is.

I can't believe the guy didn't figure out the 4th crossover is The Thing. I'm guessing straight Hulk repaint.

I wonder if Starscream is either his Ghost form or a reissue of the original Classics release.

Speaking of which, I really hope other Classics 1 figures get rereleased as well, although Megatron is probably no longer possible.

Just a random guess, without the knowledge of an existing /planned repaint. Seemed fitting, tbh.

Yay! Warpath! Cosmos! I assume these are new molds, right?

I'm hoping for a new figure. Classics SS had design mistakes that hurt him in my eyes, like the launchers hitting the wings, or the pins in the tailfins cracking the plastic. I'd like to see him re-done. Maybe a Classics SS based on his IDW form, with poseability like Prowl's.

I'm always hesitant to buy Legends class figures right at the start. There are some good ones listed like Cosmos, but that doesn't rule out the fact that they could put out a deluxe later which I would much rather have.

I wonder if the new Starscream repaint might be Cybertron Thundercracker, repainted as Starscream - to match the Legends figure...

Actually, thinking about it, they could release Thundercracker and Skywarp again like that...and it wouldn't interfere with BotCon OR Target. (Granted, that still leaves Thrust and Dirge... but, hey...)

I would've guessed The Thing as a retool (change the head) of Hulk... At least it gives a little hope that these upcoming ones will be new molds! (if only for awhile)
