Rotorstorm is one that I’ve been hoping for ever since Spinister’s release. My guess is that Sandstorm is basically the cancelled G2 Seeker. Hothouse sounds like a firehouse Micromaster base, and Greasepit sounds like a machine shop guy. Hubcap is fine. The clone set hopefully includes Cloudraker and Pounce. The Coneheads are cool, but I would rather have Bitstream and Nacelle (The other members of the “Welcoming Committee”) The rest, I don’t care about.

Good guess, with the Coneheads coming out, but Sandstorm is at a deluxe price point, so it can't be that.

Wrong picture obviously.

Tra WFC Alternate Universe Optimus Prime

EAN: 5010993719952
Product Number: E7462

The Nerf darts pictured EAN is Actually 501099334261.

Hmm... Shattered Glass maybe? :-?

Wasn't there supposed to be some rumours of a prime painted up as shattered glass? Also there's no mention of Siege or Earthrise there :-?

I would guess this is a redeco of ER Prime. They already set that precedent with the Masterpiece. Only issue with that theory is the price. It's about $42. Too cheap to be a leader class, too expensive for a voyager.

What about a Voyager with Battlemasters thrown in?

Exactly what I was thinking. Good opportunity to finally reuse the Smashdown mold (maybe in orange and black Tantrum colors or dark red and gold Longhorn colors, or both).

I can think of one Twincast Podcast-er that must be super happy about Rotorstorm getting a new figure.

UK online retailer Zavvi has listings for two new Earthrise Deluxes: Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker. No photos though, unfortunately.

The pre-orders are amongst the other 'NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM NEW YORK TOY FAIR - HASBRO REPLICAS & MORE!' products.

Both have a release date of 30 October 2020 (the same date given for Fasttrack and Runamuck).

Sunstreaker can be found here: https://www.zavvi.com/merch-action-figu ... 90548.html
And Trailbreaker here: https://www.zavvi.com/merch-action-figu ... 90547.html

These could possibly be Secret Figure #1 and #2 mentioned in Big Bad Toy Store's Transformers War for Cybertron: Earthrise Deluxe Wave 3 Set of 4 Figures.

Meh. Could still happen.

I really hope that alternate universe Prime is Shattered Glass, that would be awesome to see.

But I would hope he would use the Earthrise and not Siege design, I already have Siege and don't intend to get the retail Prime
