    Do you think it is possible? Optimus is earning the respect of Magnus & Sentinel. Grimlock is just a beast! It automatically gives Hasbro an opportunity to repaint the figures with elite guard insignia. May be we can get black repaints. What do you think?

    Edit: You can add Prowl to the list!

    Personall, I can imagine Ultra Magnus offereing Optimus a spot on the Elite Guard, but Optimus turning it down. As for Grimlock, I'm not sure, but it sounds unlikely to me.

    Unless Grimmy evolves more (maybe more contact with the Key is needed) so that he becomes more like smart comic Grimlock - unlikely.

    Besides, Grimlocks of every continuity, comic or cartoon, abhor autorithy... so I don't see this coming.

    When Optimus becomes supreme commander I'm sure he'll have to reform the Elite Guard.

    Well I think it's quite safe to say he will eventually become the supreme commander, if the series runs long enough. He could be reluctant and modest, but I'm sure he will. It would be fanwank to finally see Prime as the defacto again, and makes for good storytelling to see him grow to that.

    I could see "Elite guard" as good repaint fodder for the toys.

    As far as story goes, I'd agree with that assessment. Op could be offered a spot on the Elite Guard, but he would have to leave Earth. Optimus would turn down the position out of responsibility, wanting to stay and protect everyone he's gotten to know.

    Another possibility is Optimus and his crew get "promoted" to Elite Guard - Earth branch.

    Actually, that is a really good idea, and would make for the easy repaints of the whole main cast. I'm actually hoping we get a Grimlock repaint at some point, even if it has nothing to do with the show. The mold wouldn't look all that bad in Grimlock's G1 coloration, imo.

    I don't think the entire main class should be promoted. I think Optimus & Prowl as his second in command. Prowl can finish his ninja training with Jazz. If Grimlock is as strong as Megatron then he'd make good addition to the elite guard. He remain in charge the dinobots which satisfies his thirst for power and be willing to help more often because he has an official role. A new brain would definitely go along way to increase the likelihood of his addition. I want a black and red repaint of Grimlock.

    Grimlock is too much of a "lone wolf" to be in the elite guard. Maybe special forces though, if Autobots have something like that.

    There is only a .0001 % chance that Grimlock will join the Elite Guard. He's not even an Autobot yet. Nothing in the past, present or future seems to indicate that this will be the case. He's a Dinobot, and he might get a repaint for some reason or another, but it won't be because he joins the Elite Guard.

    Also, expect Optimus to get some type of body upgrade when/if he ever takes over as leader for Magnus. I think the only repaints we'll see of the current Optimus figures would be a Nemisis Prime.

    Not even Hasbro would be tricky enough to release the same toy with Elite Guard symbols!

    I'm hoping Grimlock and the Dinos will get smarter. Or at the very least the other 2 will eventually talk.

    Hhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    No.
    We already have Snarl and new Dinobots would just be more people to keep silent for years.

    Ahh that would be cool. But the kids today would want them to be in the show. But other that that it would be a great idea.

    It would be awesome to see a select few of the team upgraded like the Cybertron defense guys were. Prime, bigger, with supplemental armor, and TRAILER!
