I can't even think of anyone else. Everyone else seems Deluxe sized.
We're already getting an Ironhide, so he's out, perhaps as you said, a Sentinel Prime? I really didn't like the Voyager (though he had the greatest Mechtech weapon ever) but adored the leader, and I feel like a nice balance could be met. A Galvatron would be awesome, I was one of the few fans of the old one and see tons of room for some superb improvements.
I completely forgot about Galvatron. I remember someone pointing out that Devcon. But I highly doubt it because he was not a major character.
Sigh, I’m surprised Hasbro hasn’t used any opportunity the last 7 years to release a deluxe Que, Dino, Leadfoot, Soundwave, or etc here in the US lol

Evac ”hearts” you . Just noticed it .
some people say peru kill's transformation is black magic, but I've found the secret.
complete matter inversion, pretty much the same trick that makes an astrotrain with 2 good looking alt modes possible.
the typical bayverse toy transformation involves the vehicle shell opening up revealing the robot inside, and then folding up to a ninja turtle shell on the robot's back.
peru kill's transformation turns the "shell" completely inside out so the inside of the vehicle panels form the robot body.
I'm honestly kind of glad, since it makes me feel better about paying out the ass for them.
Teaser for my upcoming Megatron custom, the mask is retractable BTW.
I just got RoTF leader Optimus Prime for $10 today, I will post some pics tonight, and I must say, having seen the new Masterpeice Optimus in-hand at the same store, I prefer the leader class figure. I know that sounds crazy, but the MPM Optimus wasn’t as big as I thought he would be and just didn’t really seem to have very much “heft” to him. Plus I have read the stories about how the hood panels don’t tab in and there are lots of QC issues. Plus $80 for the MPM vs. $10 for the leader....
The mom prime is taller than rotf leader when his hips are extended.
“Mom Prime”. Lol
I didn’t say the MPM was short, I said it wasn’t as massive, both in size and bulk. For a Masterpeice figure he just felt too light. Maybe it’s just because I am spoiled by MP Primal, who was a VAST improvement over the original figure, while MPM Optimus takes a lot dom ques from the ROTF figure, so the differences aren’t as pronounced. I feel the same about MPM Bumblebee, I have seen so many darn ‘Bees that even an MP figure doesn’t really “wow” me. But that isn’t to say I am trashing the MPM line, because MPM Ironhide and Barricade look AWESOME. I think it helps that Barricade only had a couple of decent toys, his original, the DoTM and HA ones. And Ironhide hasn’t had a movie-accurate Voyager-ish sized toy. The most movie accurate one was that DOTM deluxe.
I’m not trying to start an argument, I’m just saying that while MPM Optimus does do some things right (slimming down the back and adding some nice silver paint), in other aspects I find that the ROTF figure is superior. But that’s just my
Both of them looks pretty good together.
What do you guys think will happen in the Bumblebee Movie Line? Just that it seems there are very few robots and they sound like it will just be one wave of Deluxes and that's it.
I think only the kid-oriented merch (one steps and the like) will be specifically branded for the movie and the standard TFs will be rolled into the Studio series. I could see hasbro dedicating a wave or two for characters in the movie.
RoTF Optimus Prime:
Yeah that’s what everything so far points towards.
I don’t think it’s even that given that Ford licensed the previous Barricade figures and the MPM alongside Saleen so cant see that they’d have a problem with the TLK figure; maybe it’s something to do with the company that did the mods, or just the final car design hadn’t been decided on before the finished toy designs were made.
Bought MB-07 Soundwave to replace my KO Human Alliance Soundwave. The paint job makes it look great with the MPM figures.
Custom painted (by xaviercal) Supreme size KO Starscream next to Takara MPM-4 Optimus Prime. If the alt mode scales were more accurate, SS would easily be twice the height of OP.
