I'd say Swoop should get Carly, but he's rumored to be a Voyager.

Spike being released with a Buzzworthy won't preclude him from bring released here? Or would it be different? I mean, Spike was never in a scene with the Dinobots, right? What about 1 of the Lithonians?

Hmmm good point, I'm not sure
And you're right I don't think he was in a scene with the dinobots unless they were there inside unicron towards the end when Daniel saved his dad
As far as one of the lithonians, I don't remember if the dinobots showed up after he'd already been executed or not

2 characters who need updates badly are Blaster and Perceptor. SS86 is the perfect opportunity. Deluxe Percy, voyager Blaster. Or leader, with a voyager figure and cassettes.

True enough. She was not in the movie. But as a Voyager he's not going to have anybody with him at all.

Sludge should be big and bulky enough that a small figure wouldn't be necessary to make up the plastic requirement for leader class if he's done right.

Yesssss, with wreck-gar and the dinobots on the way, all I need to complete my '86 cast are a good Perceptor and Blaster!!!

Although I'll say I wouldn't mind preceptor being in a generations line so he could have a head more similar to IDW version. Spices him up a bit
Then again if that were to happen he might not have the microscope alt mode and thats one of the coolest things about him

Agreed. Sludge is supposed to be dummy thicc compared to the others. Hopefully the alt mode neck isn't too too short

Plus 1 for Blaster. WfC/FoC Blaster is the wrong aesthetic and TR Blaster is a tad too big. He should be the same height as Grimlock.

I believe deluxe Gnaw is already happening, and Wreck-Gar will be released as voyager but perhaps he'll be a shorter voyager? I'm not sure about the junkions but I'd love to see more of them to go against Scourge's sweeps!

Core class Wheelie and Daniel would be great, especially if both transform! I don't think that'll happen in this line though, unfortunately

It's been a bit since I saw the '86 movie and I'm reading the old Marvel comics, that's where I got the size comparison. But yes, this Blaster should be the same size as Soundwave which makes the TR Blaster even more out of scale.

I hope that's why he wasn't released as a retool of Soundwave, because he's getting his own mold
And I hope he comes with megaphone accessories for his hands haha (cassettes are more important of course)

Hi, the latest studio series voyager wave had both and 86 bot and a live action bot. With two seperate threads, where would I news the finding? I would like to unlock the main thread to use for news purposes concerning the line. If people want to discuss in seperate threads, that's fine but I can't news in 2 places.
If you have any news, rumours, or hot new sightings to report which you feel should be front paged,

While not a great solution, possibly news it to the live action thread since the only new bot in that wave is Bee Screamer? Of course that only kicks the problem down the road for if/when we get a split case with new figures for both sides of the line.
