They can.

The Prime Masters (and by extension Titan Masters), Enigmas and Matrix Cores all have the same basic shape, so they can be endlessly swapped out. Spots for them are the:

- Legends Class cockpits
- Deluxe Class Hand Armor
- Voyager Class Foot Armor and Enigma cavity (Grimlock's mouth, Starscream's cockpit)
- Leader Class Matrix

In fact, Combiners can fit a whopping 7 of them!

Thanks :D I also didn't know about the legends thing either so I'm guessing that Slash has this compatability as well.

Would be really cool if the next titan after predaking was a new Primus which had spaces for all 13 prime masters.

That's a pretty cool and smart idea :-?
We will see...

It's 12 confirmed Prime symbols, but let's not forget that Hasbro let 3 additional symbols slip in store display advertising. The display features Primal so it probably wasn't meant to be used so early in the line and the 3 new symbols will probably be explained later (Toy Fair? SDCC?). The last symbol is obviously meant to represent Optimus Prime (the 13th Prime), but I'm still sticking with my original theory that the other two belong to Primus and Unicron leaving me with hope that we are getting updated Titans of each sometime in the future.

Actually, Swoop DOES have a G2 color scheme... it just was never used as the molds to him and Sludge were lost: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/File:G2SwoopArtwork.jpg

No, she's going to be a Voyager made from Starscream's mold instead.

The mold got lost? #-o
So there are two possibilities for him.

Shame the Rodimus toy doesn't look anywhere near as good as those concept sketches. Guess it wasn't workable, at least within the budget. That truck mode looks much better too than the mess of the toy.

Rodimus is clunky, but I like it better than Evolution Optimus. At least it gets the idea right with Hot Rod and his car alt mode and Rodimus and his alt mode. The only thing missing is the battle station (though I have seen some workable able fan modes) but Rodimuss never used that in faction anyway.

Optimus is less satisfying. Both robot modes are alright but the truck mode is terrible for no good reason (they really couldn't hide those arms better?) and the truck wouldn't be Orion Pax's alt mode anyway. They really should've figured out a way to get an Alt mode for Orion out of there too, but I think the whole thing was too much for their current budget.

Designwise it would have worked. Maybe it was too Titanium styled. And I really Love the double rearwheels.

They could have designed the tractor Like War Within Optimus Prime but that wouldn't have been G1 enough.

That could've been a good way to go. I mean, we just has a G1 tractor trailer with Powermaster Prime, did we need another one (an not even a good one) the following year?

So, assuming the Monstructor/Dinoking is coming (based on the Cutthroat shown at NYCC having Wildfly's head), how do we think we will be getting them?

My bet is on them being a boxset. Does anyone think these will be a surprise wave 5/6 release?

Flip side, who thinks this will actually be a 4 wave series, and basically be done and switching over at years end?

I'm still wondering HOW we are going to get them. I mean Cutthroat to Wildfly is simple enough but the others will need a lot more remolding. Particularly the center bot. I'm assuming they'll remold Grimlock into somebody, the two headed Hun-Grr doesn't match up to any Monstercon.

A box set is most likely.

I hope not. I want to get some surprise Evolution Leader class figures. Thunderwing Prime, PLEEEASE :BOWDOWN:
BW Megatron might be even more awesome. :michaelbay:
And I wouldn't mind an original Evolution Megatron, as well, :HASBRO: ;)

There are certainly more than enough characters to do a full additional 3 waves (4-6) for PotP. But all we can do at this point is hope. If we see anything beyond what was leaked last year it wont be until SDCC 2018 (unless Hasbro has a couple one-off surprises for us).

I'd love to get

legends Class Eject, Legends Class (Blue Decepticon Casette)

Deluxe Sideswipe, Tracks & (any other 1985 deluxe Autobot) to complete the Inferno Voyager Combiner

Deluxe Chromia & Lancer to complete the Elita-1 combiner

Deluxe Windsweeper & (???) to complete the Starscream Combiner

Piranacon

Monstructor

Road Caesar

Land Cross

Raiden

G2 Defensor

Of course, Many fans wanted the Headmaster Horrorcons for TR, which was seemingly perfectly geared for them at the Voyager scale size. We don't always get what we want :(

I'v had that same thought. I hope there is going to be wave/s 5-6. It can be calculated by useing the Prime Masters wave 1 =3, wave2 =2, wave3=3, wave wave4=?

I think we already have enough cassettes and if you really want Frenzy: Reprolables to make TR Frenzy

Piranacon
Now we are talking 8-)

Monstructor
Oh yes, keep on going :twisted:

Road Caesar
Seriously? :-?

G2 Defensor
I guess that's why we get Inferno.

I bet kids would have loved them, too and they would have sold like hot applepie.

:SICK: I'm sorry, but that's hideous. He looks like someone poured pea soup all over him. Slag, Snarl and Grimlock were solid colors in G2, and Swoop gets that? Perhaps it was for the best that he was never released.

I could see him getting AoE Slash's color scheme if he'll be released in his G2 colors.
That might even look cool :-?

I like your idea for a G2 recolor, but having grown up at the mid to end of G1 and recalling all the G2 popping up, it is definitely that radditude feel they tried to invoke with some of those colors

For the record as someone who was entering adulthood when G2 came out, At the time I was excited about getting the Dinobots because they retained their original look in the first releases. Sadly I did not get them quick enough, and when the funky recolors started coming out, I passed. I did get the combiners because I had always wanted them, and unfortunately there was no choice in colors (though later I did go back and manage get the original series versions).

1. Notice how its at the bottom of my wants list, so not really a priority, and

2. Also for the record, I never really understand why G2 sets were released in the first place. But yeah, I've always felt if something is going to fail, you should go all out, and not half-ass it.

Now that Hasbro is releasing the Unite Warriors Blast Off mold for May Mayhem 2018, I want a new G2 Bruticus boxed set. It can use the shuttle version of Blast Off instead of the jet version, and maybe it could use the correction faction symbols this time too! :P
