At least two of them have been decoded. "Adrian" is Galvatron and "Ivan" is Grimlock.

At least two of them have been decoded. "Adrian" is Galvatron and "Ivan" is Grimlock.

Thunderlips = Slug
Southpaw = Scorn
Ivan = Grimlock
Max = Lockdown
Bruce = Drift
Paulie (Perhaps a pun on the word Polly?) = Strafe
Rocky = Slash
Duke = Hound
Adrian = Galvatron

Also , some other interesting duplicate ID Numbers:
Brawn & Mudslinger is the same as Legends Cliffjumper
Chromia shares the same as Tank (Already pointed out)
Fans Choice and Wind Blade are the same (Already pointed out)
It seems that Sharpshot's name is now Skrapnel.

Something I'd like to bring up that Arcee's product number is very different than any of the other listings in terms of formatting. It's entirely possible that this is an aborted listing; perhaps when Generations Arcee was hinted at back in 2011, which turned out to be TF: Prime's Arcee. Time will tell I suppose, I think Toy Fair is in February so we'll get more info then.

If it's survived this long alongside, or underfoot of Bay's movies, I'm fairly confident that it'll continue to give us non-movie-lovers something to look forward to.

Or maybe vice-versa with "Skrapnel" having been an early working name for Sharpshot, since we've seen more official source use "Sharpshot" and that was the name used in FOC. ;)

yeah a lot of the non-movie listings seem to good to be true, or could be old unused listings...

They do the upscaling/simplification/cheapening/ruining forever only for Prime. Generations is unaffected.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower & Wedge
3) Energon Sledge, Duststorm, Bonecrusher & Wideload
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

I also heard somewhere that since he won the fan's choice vote @Botcon that he'd be receiving a proper new mold all his own rather than being a repaint/retool of Grimlock.

I never said it did, but I do recall reading it being reported that someone from Hasbro at the show said as much (that he'd be getting his own new mold because of winning the fan's choice poll).

Don't remember hearing that at the panel. :-?

I don't see it in Ryan's notes, TFW2005's notes, or my notes. :???:

Maybe they were speaking of Windblade. After all, Ultra Magnus won the Hall of Fame too. ;)

Just want to point out: "Hasbro said it = fact". We can all agree on this. I just want us all up to speed! :lol:

It'd be just as easy to say, "Optimus Prime gets 4-5 molds per year, during a Recession". I think it's obvious we'd see more Optimi if the economy was booming! :lol:

Actually, if the economy were booming, we'd be seeing a lot more variation in figures and new characters instead of so many repaints/slight remolds. That's one of the reasons why I was so surprised by Sandstorm.

You're absolutely correct about that. I was being a little ironic and ignorant on purpose (subtle comedy). But then again, never underestimate bad decisions. Theoretically, if the economy improved dramatically, we have no guarantee that Hasbro would clean house, so there's a strong possibility that the same Hasbro idiot who started this BB/Optimus fetish would continue it well into the next decade. After all, this exec could argue, the company profits improved while selling so many BBs and Optimi, and that therefore it was essential to continue this "winning" strategy into the next decade! ;)
Unless the BB/Optimus strategy is working and I don't see it, the situation has less to do with the economy and more to do with the idiots in charge. :HEADHURTS:

Being a Hall of Fame winner doesn't equal getting a new toy.

I never said it did, but I do recall reading it being reported that someone from Hasbro at the show said as much (that he'd be getting his own new mold because of winning the fan's choice poll).


I can't think of a figure more deserving, despite my desperate cries for a new G1 Scorponok mold. I'd love to see Generations give us new Beast Wars figures, and I'd much prefer Megs without Grimlock's body frame; it really is drastically different from his Season 2 Transmetal, which I assume is what they're attempting to emulate.

Of the flurry of new molds listed, I think the most likely suspects are the ones who appear on multiple lists. Ergo, Leader Class Jetfire and Megatron, repainted movie molds just like Ironhide and Starscream last year. A redeco of Starscream's Legends figure? Inevitable anyway.

As for the new Generations deluxes and voyagers, I think 1 additional wave is possible before we get overwhelmed with a deluge of new movie figures. And that'd be... Whirl, Crosscut, Tankor, Rattrap, and Nightbeat. Right between Wave 2 in Jan/Feb and Age of Extinction in May.

While I'd love to see Roadbuster, Brainstorm, Arcee, Hardhead, and especially Jhiaxus... I just don't see how Hasbro can realistically bring these figures in during that limited gap. While it's possible that they'll run both lines concurrently, they'd also be running with Rescue Bots and the terrifying simplified deluxes of Beast Hunters. Too many lines at once.
