Ok, since there is a growing wish for a series that doesn't have Prime, Megatron, Starscream, or Jetfire, lets speculated on the future leaders, in case Heroes lasts longer than the Unicron Trillogy (note, the is just a speculation/ what if? thread, don't think that Hasbro is actually going to do this until the next series (after Heroes is over, or is Heroes lasts longer that G1) (I know I earlier posted that Hasbro has to keep the current leaders so we dont' have a repeat of Season 3 or lose copyrights, but I thought about this since then and realized that Scantron, who I think first thought of this, who said we needed a new leadership, so Prime and Megatron would be fresher in the future Autobots Possiblilty 1: Give Ultra Magnus, who hasn't been oversexposed since he rarely gets a figure, leadership, even if it's only a season while Prime is out of commission. 2: Take a cue from Japan, use new molds of the past leaders (Star Sabre, Dai Atlus, Metal Hawk, Fortress Maximus) As some fans know, Japan thrived without Prime/ Convoy for years. 3: select another Autobot who is as close as A/E/C Jetfire in command and make him leader. Some canidates are Prowl, Grimlock, Ironhide, Jazz, etc Decepticons 1: Instead of Megatron or Starscream, maybe Shockwave (acting like the comics version) 2: much like my second possiblilty for the Autobots, make new molds of the later Japanese Destron/ Decepticon leaders/ troops/ gestalts (Deathsaurus, Overlord, Skorpinak, with Dinoking, Predaking, and Liokaiser) 3: Make a Bludgeon who looks like the comics pretender shell, but not a Pretender, have him transform, make him articulated and give him command with some of the other later G1 characters, in new molds, his troops (the Seacons, the Decepticon Pretenders, Fangray, etc.) I know that there is no way that Hasbro would use some of these ideas, since they are probably similar to the later Marvel Comic, but this is just a thought.
