    I've been thinking, naturally at this point we all expect constant repaints and remolds of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. But what if Hasbro got a little experimental... what if they secretly started designing less popular characters and fan-cult favorites with bigger toy models and fantastic molds?? For instance, what if this rumored "movie trilogy" line (is it completely confirmed yet? I don't really know, correct me if I'm wrong), had a Leader class Cloverjolt or Bonecrusher announced only a couple months before their release? Or what if the new generations line had a deluxe Power Run or Half-Track (characters people have probably never heard of). How would you react? Would you buy them? Do you think our fandom love for a character would trump the desire of the aimed audience's constant repeats of Bumblebees and Optimuses (or is it pronounced Optimi :p ); or maybe the resurrected spectrum of characters would bring new fan-favorites to 10-year-old BB lovers? I know this is wishful thinking (and I highly doubt Hasbro would ever take this risk) but I just wanted to know your opinion. Whatcha think?

    Nothing more than repaints.

    And it looks like the entire US release of it may be only one repaint.
