Listings on Hasbro China's official Taobao store supposedly leaked a lot of new info and have since been taken down. We cannot confirm if everything below is true, so we will take it as rumours for now. The new figures listed are some we knew were coming, like deluxe Runamuck and Titan Scorponok as well as Movie Masterpiece toys Starscream and Ratchet (this is not the first time we hear of these). However, there was also a listing for a commander class Skylynx, which makes perfect sense for that size class, as well as two Quintesson themed listings. One is for a voyager class Quintesson and another is for a deluxe class Quintessa. Both would be for the Earthrise line. Below is what fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade posted on our boards, including the direct source of these rumours on Weibo.

Sabrblade wrote:New (well, new-ish) rumours for Earthrise (and Movie Masterpiece, but that's not important right now):

We already knew about Titan class Scorponok from NYCC and Deluxe class "Runamok" from his winning the fan poll.

Commander class Sky Lynx was previously speculated from an earlier rumor about the next Commander class being one that was said to "complement" Titan class Omega Supreme.

Voyager class Quintesson and Deluxe class "Quintessa", however, are both very new rumors.


According to JakeToys and MEGA-Decepticon's weibo, these are preorder listings from Hasbro China's official Taobao store:

- MPM Mv1 Starscream

- MPM Mv1 Ratchet

- Earthrise Titan Scorponok

- Earthrise Commander class Skylynx

- Earthrise Voyager Quintesson

- Earthrise Deluxe "Quintessa"

- Earthrise Deluxe Runamuck

I hope the Quintessa, Quintesson, and Runamok rumors are true. Also hoping to get Omega Supreme and Scorponok on an Ollie's sale like Fort Max and Trypticon, otherwise might never see them :(

Also, Sky Lynx as commander is awesome.

I'm hoping the Quints are a box set of figures (maybe with guards?). Something we can troop build with simple clicking rotating head and mix and match accessories that plug into 5mm pegs.

As for Quintessa, unless it's an Allicon, I'm at a loss. If they're going with bases, I hope they can all fit together with a unified look of a space city or factory. With Metroplex, Max, and Scorp and Trypticon all having dark gray, leaning on that (like for the one playset we've seen revealed) would make for a set with universal appeal and play value. I hope lots of small playsets and retools are on the way. That's such a fun figure and play pattern. They could keep repainting them (and the bridge guy) to match each titan and I'd keep buying them.

We've been assuming a sort of straight redo of G1 with the "War for Cybertron Trilogy," but maybe it's really in aesthetics only? Hasbro could be taking a cue from Transformers Prime and The Last Knight, making Earth Unicron in disguise. At the end of Earthrise, Unicron (the Earth) will rise and attack Cybertron. The Quintessons and Quintessa might be trying to oppose Unicron, or be his heralds, or play another role entirely this time around.

Nor does Scorponok, yet he's officially confirmed.

How does he not fit the theme? He's a classic G1 toy that has a base mode.
His altmodes aren't Earthen like those of the others seen so far.


I am surprised we still think there's a logic to this, there isn't. Many alt modes in Siege were not cybertronian anyways.

I think we also seem to keep forgetting that Hasbro keeps insisting at conventions and through the promotional texts that Earthrise is NOT actually set on Earth, it's supposed to be set in space. The name and alt modes keeps confusing people.

Personally, I could absolutely see this being real, given:
~We know half of the figures on it are real due to official reveals and previous leaks
~Sky Lynx lines up with the cryptic Commander "leak" we had previously seen
~The line is set in space, so seeing Quintessons here would be more likely than in a line actually set on Earth proper
~We know Hasbro likes mixing obscure characters in with the heavy hitters, and the only figure in the wave of Earthrise we've already seen who I'd consider obscure is Ironworks, so most of the surprises should still be coming
~We know Hasbro has the Quintesson adjacent character of Gnaw/the Sharkticons on their mind from the fan vote, this could be why
~We also have the third Mercenary faction coming, they could easily say the Quintessons hired them and that's what faction these two listings belong to (It wouldn't be the first time a Quintesson character seemingly hired Lockdown, at least)

I really just want to know what those figures look like, as I personally still want all my Transformers figures to actually transform, which the Quintessons aren't known to do, and the name Quintessa has been used to refer to a planet, a Titan, and a weird almost humanoid Quintesson lady before. There would have to be something more to at least the Quintesson listing, wouldn't a Voyager Class Quintesson be too big for Hasbro's cartoon scale unless it did or had something to make it fit that price point?

Quintessa, a character from a total flop of a movie being ported to G1? I somehow highly doubt that.

Hmmmm, very interesting news. Although out of it all I'm more exciting for that Scorponok.

:MAXIMAL:

I briefly had blocked TLK out of my mind, so I thought you were referring to the 80s movie :lol: Either way, it might be decent? Assuming it happens at all

That said, I have to say: I do have some decently high hopes for Mercenaries. Which I'm sure will be horribly dashed.

Not interested in the MPMs, since I just stick with Studio Series, but I’m sure folks will like ‘em.

Consider me interested in the Quintesson and Sky Lynx, but I was hoping for Tidal Wave for the Commander class slot.

Maybe some of these quints are that of those gater like cons or another sharkticon mold and those 5 face guys and crew
Other than the TLK movie quintessa has no g1 reference other than their planet being called that

I hope the Quintesson rumor is true. We could finally get an actual figure based around those guys.

Maybe Quintessa is a new micromaster base complete with bot mode for the mercenary faction. Would be nice if they used the names but give us something new with them.

I still go with the theory that the third part will be more future based hence why we had more than meets the eye nods in Siege and season 1 - 2 bot cars for Earthrise

Commander is still far too small for Sky Lynx unless each component is its own commander figure. I think even an old supreme class figure would still be too small but would be the minimum of what he should be. Titan would be the best to fully portray his size, dual bot nature and the fact that he's a quadruped with wings, a long neck and tail. That would have to happen after Scorponok though but I'm fine with that. It would also make sense that all the mainline titan class figures have titan class rivals.

Jetfire is roughly a bit over half the height of Predaking. Now cut that in half to make the two parts of Skylynx and put it on all fours with the articulated wings, neck and tail. He's really not going to be all that much larger than the CW voyager at that point. Much, much heavier but not really all that much larger. Not nearly as much as people are imagining anyway. Sure he's super simple to transform, especially the lynx so it's not like a huge amount of engineering would go into it or that he'd have a huge parts count in that half either but it'd still be way too small all things considered. Unless they make a CW/PotP size Predaking. Then he'd be the perfect size...yet still too small at the same time.

Yeah I'll still get it but I'm not looking forward to a commander sized Skylynx if the rumors are true.

Wasnt he the same size as computron in the cartoon?

Wow, Skylynx and the Quintessons are definitely interesting. Personally I was hoping to see more of the original 1984 line up, especially Sunstreaker,Jazz and Huffer. Siege has been a great way for me to finally add those characters to my collection.

There's still time for some of them. Sunstreaker especially

I'd be surprised if we didn't see a new Sunstreaker soon given the new Sideswipe from Siege

I bet a million dollars we see Sunstreaker before the Earthrise Mercenaries Micromaster base Quintessa.

I'm so excited about this bridge this guy is going to sell me, it's in Brooklyn, it's gotta be worth a fortune.

Hey its just a bit of fun ;) why so serious. I mean I know we're not getting a quint micromaster base, my thing was that Quintessa was a place name, the same as the other bases. There's more likelyhood that it's a renamed alicon, if it's true at all.

On some level I'd rather no quints at all, as I thought they just weren't good (their allies not included in this)
