I'll be taking a wild guess that:

- TAV05 is "Fixit"
- TAV09 is Swoop or Swerve, taking character misreading into account

So TakaraTomy too, huh? Something tells me it'll go the way of Prime with ratings (it bombed).

swoop and snarl are obvious choices for toys and the rest of the dinobots will most likely make appearances as well. good to see knockout and my namesake dreadwing making a return.

i see....... prowl might become a decepticon due to the that prowl relates to a cat walking slowly and dreadwing? he might be resurrected due to the fact he was killed in prime by megatron with a fusion cannon due to him trying to kill starscream. but im not sure if this is true, this list.

Jetfire already exists as his own character.

Well, they're about as different as G1 and Beast Machines.

Also, I would like to point out that we can guess which are getting the deluxe treatment by looking at the price the 2,500$ would be warrior class I am assuming.

the voyager class toys seem to have been replaced by the 3 step changers since they are at a similar price point and size

Roadblock might be Drift. Just going by the order of American releases.

I'm curious if Knockout and Dreadwing will be re-appearing in RID15. Knockout survived the events of Predicons Rising , and apparently turned Autobot (or at least joined the winning side).

It's entirely possible he may pop back up in this series. He could always be one of the escaped Decepticons. They could have a field day writing his reappearance. Having him suck up to Bumblebee and try to squirm his way out of being imprisoned.

Dreadwing could also show up. I know he died in Prime, but if Transformers died for good in every series...well, you wouldn't have any series.

Is it possible that RiD Dreadwing shares a name with Prime Dreadwing, but is not the same guy?

Why would Knockout want to escape? He pulled a full defection in Predacons Rising, and the Autobots let him stick around.

For that matter, what's stopping him from showing up as an Autobot?

True, but think of it from an entertainment perspective: Which is better, a psychotic Decepticon medic turned heroic Autobot, or a prissy ex-Decepticon who is trying to wiggle his way out of his punishment?

It is very possible that some of these like Swoop, Snarl, Knock Out, Dreadwing, etc. might be toy-only figures added in to the Japanese line by Takara to bulk out the line for them, as was sorta done with the Movie Advanced Series having toys from the first three movies in addition to the AOE toys.

For all we know, Swoop and Snarl could be AOE-colored redecos of the Animated molds, Knock Out could be the Beast Hunters figure (since Japan never got that toy in the Go! line), and Dreadwing could also be the Beast Hunters figure (which was also left out of Go!) but priced higher for some reason.
