    The perfect mold IMO would be the Cybertron Leader class Prime, but it'll never happen.:(

    I'm guessing Deluxe Energon Prime (seeing as how they used the voyager energon megs last year) or possibly energon Rodimus

    He's the mold that became Machine Wars Optimus Prime. Thunderclash was his name in the European release.

    I'm betting Energon Rodimus. The set already isn't appealing enough to many people, throwing in Fattimus would hurt sales a lot.

    I'm thinking E Rodimus or Prime as well, they would be the logical choices. But then again I never would have guessed the Kup mold. Would be cool if they did the bigger E Prime minus the limbs and one of the attendee exclusives could be repainted wingsaber

    You know... just thinking out of the box a little here.... but what if Thunderclash were actually recolored from Energon Wing Saber? He's not a truck, sure, but there is nothing in the name "Thunderclash" that inherently requires a truck form. If anything, an airborne form fits the name better.

    Wing Saber has never had a repaint, he's rare, and he essentially turns into a flying wing.... not unlike the Elite Guard logo. Maybe the gimmick is that the logo is actually based on its founder's alt mode?

    Of course, unless an Energon Prime is also included in the set somewhere, the figure's combination feature would be wasted.

    Mind you, I don't think this will actually be the case. I think Thunderclash will almost certainly be a land-based truck or tank of some sort. I'm just throwing this out there for argument's sake. :)

    My bets are on Energon Prime, but without the trailer and add-ons.

    Energon Rodimus would be second pick...

    I honestly can't think of a reason why people are thinking it's gonna be Energon Rodimus. I'm in the camp that's thinking it's gonna be Energon deluxe Prime, similar to the custom by the one Japanese customizer whose name escapes me right now.

    Because it's one of the only trucks that can let them give him the chest symbol. Freestyle added an extra piece to make that custom. Also, Rodimus would not require a new head, while any Prime would.

    Probably one of the Energon Primes or Rodimus.

    I'm thinking it'll either be Energon Rodimus or on the outside, Destructicon Scourge / Combat Hero Optimus Prime. Energon Rodimus has the chest for the logo, his head is close enough to work as Thunderclash too.

    Combat Hero is a bit more of a dream pick. The chest isn't quite right, but it could work if the logo was split so half is on each window. You could also have it on the front end of the truck. The huge cannon would evoke the original's massive trailer base cannon. Plus the toy is a lot closer to Thunderclash's era, it's bigger than the others without being too big, and generally, I feel it would look extremely cool and make a nice centerpiece for the set.

    Cybertron Optimus Prime would be ideal IMO, though perhaps too big to be part of a set like this.
