    Hey all,

    I just wanted to post this but do you think Hasbro will make WFC figures of
    the rest,like Shockwave,Starscream,Ratchet,Ironhide,and so forth,since we
    have no word yet,other than the first 3 or 4 main TF's.Also I didn't make
    this thread as a who you want them to make,just to see if you think they
    will or not? Thanks all.

    We know they're making Soundwave, but it wouldn't surprise me if they made more. It'll be more unlikely there will be larger or smaller characters made, since Generations is, so far, Deluxe only.

    But at this point, it's all really just speculation.

    May god help them from the nerd rage that will be sure to ensue, if they don't make Shockwave.

    But seriously, I would hope they make more than just 4 of them...I mean really. This game will probably sell good, and they know the gold mine that Transformers figures can be.

    I think it all depends on if this truely is a prequel to the new series coming out. If it is, I could see them producing many more. If it is not, I sadly think the four we are getting will be it. Hopefully not though.

    Forgive me, the list of so-far confirmed toys has slipped me by.

    I know we're getting Prime, Megatron and BB. Who's the fourth?

    And are there screenshots of Shockwave yet?

    I honestly think Bumblebee,Optimus,Megatron and Soundwave are the only toys to get made.
    Heck maybe even Soundwave won't get made because after all hasbro did say the figures were just a little celebration of the game.

    Trypticon needs an update and no, not a repaint of a crappy legends figure.

    I could see them doing a seeker mold, and maybe an Ironhide/Ratchet mold. Anything beyond that seems highly unlikely to me. Unless (as speculated) it leads into the next show.

    At this stage, I feel like each new WFC figure is one less Classics figure. Since Generations is split between the two. And I'd rather have the regular Classics, to be honest.

    Which is too bad, because WFC has awesome designs.

    I'd honestly be surprised if they didn't end up doing a Starscream figure. Even if his design for the game is a tad crapé. Screamer always gets a figure.

    Soundwave might be cool, if they do end up making him, but it would probably mean that we wouldn't be getting a more G1 representation of the character in the Generations line.
    Then again, most of the Classics figures weren't really exact representations of the G1 characters. So I suppose you could stick him in your Classics shelf anyway.


    I actually really don't like that arm cannon they went with on him. It looks like a rejected Unreal Tournament weapon.

    I HIGHLY DOUBT that they aren't going to make figures for the majority of the characters for obvious reasons.

    For me I would like them to do other figs,but thats all up to Hasbro whether they do or not.
    But just saying it seems stupid to just do 4 figures and stop,as that just seems to wet our
    appetites.And don't flame me for saying this but from what I've seen of WFC and
    Generations,I would rather have WFC,as I am pretty happy with the Classics we have,I
    would like something new like the WFC figs.We have about 40 or so classics from 1.0 and
    2.0 so give the wfc's a chance to shine,and not with just 4 of them.

    I have a bad feeling that Shockwave is going to be the new Leader Blackout. :(

    Clearly, they'd have to make an Omega and Trypticon.

    Why does everyone assume that those 4 figures are the ONLY ones Hasbro is making at the moment?
