The reveals today may have been rather lackluster to many who were hoping to see more of what we know is coming out soon (see fun meme image below). Well, a friend to the TF community has given fans a consolation prize by revealing quite a bit of what is coming out in 2022. As was asked in the past, we will not divulge the source but it is from the similar channels where previous leaks were acquired. This info being beyond known listings means it is not set in stone. For now, just take it as a rumour with the source being the same channel as previous leaks.

Studio Series is really switching gears next year. We already have codes for some of the Bumblebee movie Cybertron scene characters and that's the direction it will be taking. So it is said that it we will be getting all the other characters we saw in that opening scene. And remember, we are also getting toys for the next live action film in 2022 as well. So at the moment, the only character from Bay's first trilogy to have a 2022 release for Studio Series is Dark of the Moon Bumblebee. So yes, we'd be getting Bumblebee movie Arcee and Soundwave before Hatchet, the Fallen and the Twins, which at this point do not have a planned release.

The core class will be coming to the Studio Series line and one of the first core class figures will be Bumblebee movie Ravage. However, once again there is currently no indication that this class will have bots from the Bay directed films. As with the Kingdom line, this class will not only be for smaller characters but any character that Hasbro wants available at a lower price point.

An upcoming Transformers toyline is called Transformers Legacy. It will have Prime characters, along with other eras. Characters rumoured for that line right now are deluxe Prime Arcee and Stunticon Breakdown.

who in the '86 line haven't they done already? they got hotrod/rodimus, kup, blurr, the decepticons... only one i can think of might be arcee? but we've already had so many arcees lately i'm not sure how a new one would be an improvement.

Perceptor, as well as any figures released as WFC characters (Archer, Springer, Ultra Magnus, Cyclonus, Galvatron, among others). But those could probably be done as redecos and rereleases of their WFC figures. Also, the remaining three Dinobots need figures (Snarl IS in the movie, but only for a couple frames).

If they make a SS 86 Blitzwing I'd be all about it. I'd then have to pick up the earthrise/siege Astrotrain. The insecticons could use an 86 release too. I have the legion class guys, but a Deluxe release would be much better.

I recently sold half my collection and decided to commit to only this WFC scale. So if I can get the full season 1 cast plus a few from season two/movie I'd be all set.

Core class Frenzy and/or Dispensor, please? Although Frenzy might be a bit too small for core class to be the proper scale.

I hope the rumors about Prime characters in the legacy line are true
Since I didn't like the siege or earthrise ratchets and TF:A/Prime are my favorite versions of the character id love am updated generations-Prime Ratchet for my collection

Maybe arcee too since my ER Arcee sucks. Or I can headcanon her as chromia since she's blue

Bulkheadddddd would be so cool and wheeljack! I prefer that wheeljack over G1 version as well.

Plus of course knock out, airachnid and the other original characters from that series

wind charger, blaster (rumored), autobot cassettes, swoop, sludge, insecticons, blitzwing, kranix, spike in exosuit (not a minifig), any other junkion, real size executioner, perceptor, brawn, gears (i think he was a dead one, maybe not, but we need a good one).

And can we get a good freakin Alpha Trion please! retool scourge man! i dont care if hes in the movie or not, its about time.

I will be the lone Transformers fan fighting for Ransack, Barrage, Chop Shop & Venom. Alone in the darkness, I will keep crying out. I'm never going to shut up about these guys. Ransack is one of my ultimate favorites. I never see any other fans requesting them. They mention Insecticons a lot but they're always referring to Kickback, Bombshell & Shrapnel. Only God knows why because Takara has already made them, Hasbro has already made them & multiple 3rd party companies have already made them.

I don't see the point in constantly begging for characters we already got. That money & tooling would be better spent going into all the characters we didn't get yet. And the deluxe Insecticons are a big hole in the 1985 lineup. I think we got all of the 85 lineup updated except for them. :-( :-x

And the way things are going, it looks like I'm gonna have to start planning on making custom bodies for the Titans Return Fangry, Squeezeplay & Horribull. Fangry & Squeezeplay will be easy, I already know which bodies to use, but there aren't many Transformers that transform into a bull. :-?

Damn, TF: Legacy sounds like something that I've wanted for a long time: fresh takes on unique designs, like those of Prime, the Bayverse, and Animated. Hopefully, we'll get better versions of Airachnid and Knockout to fill those spots on my shelves. All in all, a very intriguing article!

So wait, I remember a leaker had mentioned on april fools day that prime and bulkhead were supposedly sharing a mold/design, and they posted it on april 1 because they wanted it to be a joke, which implies it may not have been, we just weren't aware of how they would fall into the generations lines, and now we have this line where they fit in perfectly, does that mean they could actually be a thing?

Core Class coming to SS and that Legacy line are the most exiting rumors yet.
Hope everything will be confirmed soon!

The Deluxe Insecticons just don't have the recognizability, thats all. But you are not alone. Hasbro could have at least retooled CW Bombshell as Barrage to go with Chop Shop, and done a Ransack from Kickback, leaving Venom the only required new tooling. But nooo

Great minds think alike, he was giving the same observation in the Kingdom thread, and this was my response:

Just to piggyback on some other comments.... there was a Legends Chop Shop during CW, which was a retool of T30 Skrapnel, but yeah, the other Deluxe Insecticons are long overdue I agree, especially since 2 of them could also have been retooled from the other legends class Insecticons.


Anyway...If next year Hasbro goes that direction, that is fine. Spending less money on Transformers would probably be better for me, as I have spent less in each successive year of the WFC Trilogy. I'm not saying 2022 will be a total bust, but yeah there is still a LONG list of original series characters that have had no modern representation at all, and others without one for at least a decade. I'd rather see those than keep rehashing legacy characters. But I digress. I'm sure UT fans are eagerly awaiting their due. If I only get 2 or 3 items per year, even if it's only through Selects, that is fine, as long as there is still something for me, even if it isn't through main retail. Yes I still have a long list of Combiners I am waiting for.

What I’d like to see them do is a set of voyager ironhide/ratchet for the 86 line. Ironhide had a couple of lines.. the ratchet recolour would be obvious, then they can re release them with post death decos.

Still feel they haven’t nailed the characters in the chug lines yet. And SS would be a good opportunity for them to get it right. The voyager scale would help with extra engineering...

I guessed this would be the case, it feels as if Studio Series in 2021 has just been keeping the wheel spinning until the next live-action movie starts production and Hasbro are given designs for that movie's characters, with the year conveniently being the anniversary of a movie. I get the impression Devastator was always intended as the grand finale for the Michael Bay movies in Studio Series before it moved on to other things, but it does suck that there are still many, many Baybois that haven't had new figures like the Fallen, the other Dinbots and the Twins (I mean there's a Jar Jar toy in Star Wars: Black Series so the fact they're unpopular isn't much of an excuse).

I'm intrigued about that Transformers: Legacy line though, if it includes characters from many different eras it would be a good place to put Tarantulas and Predacon Inferno without extending Kingdom beyond a year, and I'd be down for some new Prime toys. Perhaps the 10th Anniversary Breakdown and Jet Vehicon set, Hades Megatron and R.E.D. Arcee were a way of testing the water to see if there was interest in more Prime stuff? Once I have everything I want from Kingdom I was planning on taking a break from Transformers in 2022, but depending on whether or not Legacy is real and what it has, I may just focus on that line and nothing else.

Legacy is almost certainly real as the successor to WFC (and probably delayed a bit so Kingdom can have a fifth wave) since we know at least one store is calling Selects Black Zarak part of that line. Wasn't there also rumor that Motormaster was getting remade for Legacy?

Who knows, maybe that Armada Optimus Prime proof of concept will resurface as a Legacy Commander Class figure. I'd be fine with a CC Energon OP as well, especially if they can do something interesting with the drones. You know they'll make Op into a CC figure at some point, that's sure to sell.

Problem is Hasbro would have to go it alone. We're never getting Deluxe Insecticons for the same reason why we'll never get a proper G1 Jetfire remake: Takara Tomy can't sell it. The designs and original toys are owned by Bandai and Hasbro doesn't make anything anymore that isn't also sold by (or sellable by) Takara Tomy. So the only way the Deluxe Insecticons are ever getting made is if they look absolutely nothing like the original toy designs aside from colors just like Skyfire, to which I'd have to ask what's the point? Yes, they sold that tiny Micromaster Chop Shop with Megatron, but that was hardly recognizable as the Beetras design. They didn't sell the Legends Chop Shop at all.

This would indeed be an ideal place to finally release that figure, yes.

I'm confused by the SS86 line. Is it just going to be characters unique to the film (Or those with talking roles, like Jazz)? Which it should be and if that is the case, there aren't that many left to make. Otherwise it is just another line to flood with the same old faces, who all appeared in some form or another, in the opening 30 minutes of The Movie.
