Thanks to heads up from several Seibertronians, we have news that the Planet Iacon Facebook Page has posted a screenshot of some new potential Earthrise figures, potentially confirming some rumors.

The image bears some resemblance to images we had gotten around Titans Return, which showed some not yet announced figures in rough concept color form, although these images don't have any color location indicators. The image shows us the Titan Class Scorponok, whom we did know was coming based on his gray prototype head we saw back last year at New York Comic Con.

Up next on the list is Sky Lynx, who looks to be our Commander class figure for the year, pushing back a large Armada Tidal Wave figure yet another year for us. This Sky Lynx appears to have 3 modes: robot mode, shuttle mode, and a rocket base mode, which looks pretty nice in this image. We also have what appears to be 2 new battlemasters, who transform into different styled shields/ramps. Up next are some Micromasters, which includes Tune-up and Big Daddy, who have been found at retail, and a new pair that appears to be a pair of combining Micromasters similar to the Battle Patrol from last year, only now they combine to form a space shuttle, continuing the space theme set by Omega Supreme and set to continue.

At the bottom are a pair of deluxes that are also showing up at retail, Wheeljack and Ironworks. Wheeljack looks to be a model sheet based on his Earth Wars mobile game design, so whether this sheet will be accurate to how the toys actually come out is anyone's guess.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Zarak looks massive there. Can’t wait for better looks at these.

Most important question: Does Skylynx have the Lynx mode? I don't really care if he has a base mode.

The 4th row are just Trip Up, Big Daddy, Phaser, and Blast Master's G1 toy pics from TFWiki.

I liked the Astro Squad enough back in the day that this gets my hopes up for Earthrise, but so far none of the Siege Micromasters I've handled really outdo the originals, even with the combining weapon gimmick.

That's what I was gonna ask.....I dont personally care for the base mode, myself....I'm more concerned if he is close to original G1 self....

Skylinx looks great!!! Also, I'm sure the mode of the Linx is not shown, the legs are there and he just needs a tiger head, also in base mode the 2 pieces got separated so...Nice the new micro masters, just need more and better pics about Skorpionok for to say something good or bad :CON:

Nice to see some news bits about Scorponok trickling out. I’m sure it won’t be long until we start seeing some more detailed images. And then of course there’s the inevitable Black Zarak, that I’m sure we’ll be getting eventually.

The news about Sky Lynx was unexpected, and very welcomed. Super excited for new, non-combiner torso Sky Lynx. Like most of us, I’m also curious about the fate of his cat mode. Here’s hoping,

The Micromaster shuttle is the Astro Squad. They're using original G1 stock photos of Phaser and Blast Master.

Well, if this is true it confirm quite a bit of things that have been hinted at, which is good. Scorponok is the only Titan I've ever wanted from 'day one' (the others are still in the maybe-ill-pick-them-up-someday, maybe category) due to him further completing a roster that was reintroduced during Titans Return, which was when I got back into collecting. Once Snapdragon is made that team will be fully complete.

However am I a weirdo for being most interested in the new, potentially Decepticon Battlemasters? Battlemasters are a great fun, accessory and figure all in one and they've been a good place for HasTak to add whole new characters, like Smashdown.

Is Black Zarak inevitable? I mean Takara had to crowd fund Grand Maximus (and didn't even get enough interest for the pretender shell) so far hasbro have given us zero repaints when it comes to the Titans, not counting SDCC exclusives, unless you'd be happy for BZ to be an SDCC exclusive?

I don't think Black Zarak is inevitable, but I want it to happen, even if he is a TT mall exclusive

He's the obvious and only choice for the mold, barring maybe 'comic book colored' Scorponok. However, as pointed out Takara has to crowdfund Grand Maximus. Btw once Scorponok is out, the Demon Generals from Zone will be fully completed!

We also never got Gigastorm from Trypticon, in addition to the aforementioned Grand Max. And we never got Metrotitan.

Black Zarak is definitely one of those "could go either way" cases

Maybe Titans are just too costly to retool and redeco.

I am defiantly interested in Skylynx!I have no personal attachment to the character or original toy, its just the sheer wackiness of him that is appealing, as is the increased size and hopefully detail that the Commander class brings. If he goes on sale like Jetfire I will certainly pick him up

Thnx for pointing them out... when I moved my focus away from skorponok and sky lynx, I noticed how similar they were to the original toys and was thinking ‘why do they even bother, they might as well make reissues..’

Is it just me or does it look like Scorponok's proportions are kinda wrong?

He does look good. It's just a pity that Hasbro seems to once again be forgoing the original's ability to split into two forms.

Sky Lynx, yes please! I have been waiting for this since the Commander class was revealed last year.

Seeing how his base mode has the shuttle detach from the carrier, I would imagine each component has their respective animals modes included.

This is going to be an expensive year...

I think his legs might be too skinny.
