    well, because a TF2 transformer is now in production it got me wondering, mostly about who it is, Then i though. It could be a Starscream preview character, he is highly requested by fans and the preview figures could be labelled under the title "Reign Of Starscream" It could mean a Thundercracker protoform, Protoform Arcee, Protoform Longarm, Protoform Cliffjumper etc...

    I really don’t have many thoughts on it yet. It’s too hard to peer that far into the future right now. I am too consumed with picking up animated to care.

    Even if it’s a leader Starscream/Thundercracker, they’d have to greatly improve the toy design for me to get excited. I could care less about a leader class Arcee though. And Longarm should have been created on earth, so if it’s a leader Longarm (though I like Longarms deluxe toy) I would indefinitely pass. Starting off with a leader Cliffjumper would be dumb to me too. Might as well repaint ultimate Bumblebee and call it ultimate Cliffjumper…I doubt it would be that popular.

    I hope it ends up being a preview of a movie version of a character we haven’t seen yet like a leader Soundwave. Now that I’d buy.

    I don't personally think the one we're seeing in August will be a new character, so I'm betting on Starscream. But the more Protoforms the merrier, they were some of my personal faves from the first movie line.

    Yeah but if they release Leader SS with all the Reign stuff then a few repaints would be acceptable

    If we're going into reign of Starscream repaints I demand the protoform Thundercracker. That thing looks awesome.

    reign of starscream toys sound cool but really the timing would be way of and since this story is out of continuity I dont see hasbro pushing it. Though they might use it for some inspiration.

    I'm all for new protoforms, even repaints of the first two. It's really interesting what hasbro might do for preview figures. I hope we get a full wave though not just two figures that when over ordered clog the shelves.

    I would even be ok with repaints of tf1 figs as previews I wouldnt mind

    I agree. Well, to be in any way excited about a leader Starscream, I'd say they would have to really redesign the character entirely. At least his legs, arms, and proportions all together.

    Thyat doesnt seam logical as the would need to redesign his cgi model for the movie. It has been stated before that starscream looks like that to keep him from towering over the autobots. Even with an all new model the chicken legs and giant chest would stay

    I really hope we get a new mold for Prime, but consider what Orci said about Hasbro not wanting to have the same toys out so parents don't have to purchase the same toy twice.

    This could either mean they will try to get as new molds as possible or simply don't sell any of the first movie characters.
