    If we don't get these molds as Thrust and Dirge, is there a chance we'll see them as different characters with new color schemes?

    I'll second that question about where the heck are the Animated Constructicons? Every other prominent season two character besides Omega Supreme has been seen already, but no news on Scrapper and Mix.

    And secondly, one that likely won't be chosen, but has nonetheless been bugging me for awhile now: What's up with the random day glo orange on Universe Galvatron and Silverbolt? The color sticks out like a sore thumb from the rest of the figures' paint and I'm curious why such a clashing color was used.

    And thirdly, given the large amount of abuse the Classics Seeker mold has been getting and the fact that we're already seeing some degeneration problems on Henkei Thundercracker, are any steps being taken to keep this mold viable (especially in light of the demand for more figures based off of it)?

    1. Is there any chance of a Cybertron Primus toy being released in the Universe line to go along with Unicron?

    2. Will we see a Universe Scourge toy to go along with Galvatron and Cyclonus?

    3. We need more Decepticon love in the Universe line. Any chance we'll at least see a Shockwave toy?

    4. Since Eric Siebenaler told us there was a chance every character will be redecoed in the Animated line, does this mean we can see a G1 inspired colorscheme for Prowl?

    5. Are you going to redeco the other Classics seekers that were avaliable at normal retail with more G1 inspired colorschemes?

    Are there any plans to release the Mickey Mouse Transformer in the US? If so, would he be in the Optimus Prime color scheme or something closer to Mickey's standard colors?

    1. Could we see a re-deco of Cybertron Unicron added to the Universe 2.0 line, to represent Bludgeon?

    2. Could we see a re-paint of the Hound and Ravage set from Universe 2.0 which would represent Swindle and Howlback?

    3. Could it be possible to arrange a partnership with Max Factory - the producers of the highly-articulated Figma range of miniatures, a line similar to the Revoltech series produced by Kaiyodo - which would allow for Hasbro/TakaraTomy to release the Cybertronic form of certain Pretenders (such as Metalhawk) as Universe 2.0/Henkei figures, and MF the armoured human shells (such as when Metalhawk is in his Hawk persona) as action figures?

    4. Could there be a set of deluxe-sized Universe 2.0 representations of the G1 Predacons (perhaps with a voyager-class Razorclaw) which could be merged into Predaking?

    5. Could there be a re-deco of Energon Scorponok in G1 Scorponok colours for Universe 2.0 - and might there be the scope to replace the current head with a Lord Zarak Headmaster?

    Instead of the rejected new mold for Bludgeon, would there be any chance of seeing a repaint of Cybertron Unicron?
