So aside from Kingdom, anyone else think we'll finally see what Studio Series 86 is all about?

Wow, The $70 price for that Quintesson Pit set is pretty much right on, I thought it would be way more

$30-Voyager
$20-Deluxe
$10-Legends &

The Prosecutor & Kranix are basically Battlemaster size (so $6 each).

It's not my thing, but its nice to see an exclusive item that isn't overly priced

I've been worrying myself sick over this set. I've constantly been refreshing Pulse everyday to see if it came up. Glad to know we finally have a date for its release so I can stop panicking over it.

I wonder what the chances will be of actually getting the items we want. Will there be enough for those of us who don't have Plus to get them?

I'd like to see the Ghostbusters item as the Cobra Commander.

What I'm hoping for: the first wave of Kingdom being officially revealed, at least a couple of things from Studio Series 86, and perhaps some of the other new Studio series figures we know of through store listings, like Jolt and Dino.

What I'm expecting: a full 30 minute long stream just about the Pit of Judgement set, perhaps one more Selects exclusive, and S T A Y Y Y T U U U U N E D

Didn't Cyclonus get leaked as a Kingdom release? If so, I'm doubting SS86 exists. Especially because Earth mode Magnus was also leaked.

Not to mention, this Quintesson set would be the perfect SS86 release as well. I'm guessing if it ever did exist, it just got dissolved into exclusives/earthrise.

Cyclonus is a Kingdom release, yes, but what about the actual SS86 listings that were found for Blurr, Jazz, Kup, Hot Rod, Scourge, Grimlock & Wheelie, and Slag & Daniel? Cyclonus was only speculated to be SS886 after some of those listings revealed that it even existed.

Also, considering it's releases for next year to celebrate the 86 movie anniversary, saying it's been cancelled "if it did exist" before it's even supposed to have been released or announced yet seems somewhat premature.

Pretty much this. We don't really know the nature of SS86 yet (whether it's its own subline or just part of the regular SS assortment), but we know it exists, unless some major changes have been made behind the scenes.

My theory for why figures like Cyclonus, the Quintesson set, the new Ultra Magnus and others aren't in SS86 is because I don't think SS86 was ever meant to be it's own thing; rather SS is being used as a dumping ground for figures they wanted to make but didn't have room for in WFC due to the limited size of toylines and the inclusion of Beast Wars in Kingdom. That's also why I doubt there will be any major aesthetic differences between the SS86 figures and the rest of WFC, dispite the current speculation that they will be even more hardcore cartoon/movie accurate.
