    Thinking we'll have another set dedicated to Rumble and Frenzy and/or Ratbat/Buzzsaw.
    I wouldn't say it's just the chest either. The components for Optimus are similar to Energon colorwise. Mirage and Sunstreaker as the legs is similar to Submarine 4 and Digger 3 like how Prowl and Ironhide being the arms is similar to Copter 2 and Fire 1.

    Do you guys think Frenzy and Rumble Micromasters will just turn into slabs (cassette-icles) like Lazerbeak and Ravage? Or maybe we'll get pseudo-tank modes again?

    They’d be cassettes considering how heavy siege is leaning into g1

    They would be made to fit inside of Soundwave's chest. If they had a third drone mode beyond that, tough to say.

    I'm betting that they'll be cassettes, as this line is a lot closer to G1 than other Generations lines.

    I really hope they finish off Soundwave's cassettes with Ratbat, Buzzsaw, Rumble, & Frenzy (maybe package some with a Soundblaster repaint).

    Then next line can be all about Blaster & his cassette buds!

    Thinking about the future of War for Cybertron. I just know each line is going to have an Optimus and Megatron.

    as much as i'd buy a transforming sandblaster, i think it'd end up as a botbot instead.

    Well that's great... if you own CW Sunstreaker, that is. I, uh, sold mine, cause I preferred the look of the Universe toy once I researched it. And that sucks, because while I feel Universe Sunstreaker is somewhat better than CW Sunstreaker, this new Siege Sideswipe blows the water out of the Universe Sideswipe. But, they're just not compatible with each other, because the Universe toy is so massive compared to modern Deluxes. And hell, I honestly like Sideswipe and Sunstreaker being big compared to some of the other autobots. So this is really frustrating as a collector. I guess if they ever release a definitive Sunstreaker in the next two years, I'll probably bite. But I'm guessing that's not coming at least until the next line. So I'm kind of screwed for the time being.

    Maybe

    Part 2 could be after the ark and nemesis left cybertron and focus on who stayed behind.

    With all of part 1 Autobots confirmed, I wonder about Bumblebee, Jazz or any of the rest.

    Makes me even more excited to see what kind of media they put out for Siege. Imagine a comic or show about the autobots who got left behind fighting a battle they know they've lost against the remaining decepticons lead by shockwave! Id be behind that in a heartbeat.

    This makes me think about what other Autobots are to come or if they intend to finish off the remaining original Autobots from pilots.

    I agree, i want to see the whole 84 cast in cybertronian modes. In terms of part 3 being Unicron, i kinda hope its not because i came up with an idea for how they could do it. Prime wars trilogy lasted 3 years and if this trilogy lasts the same amount than it will last 2019-2022. That means that 2023 could be the start of a new trilogy. It also is the 10th anniversary of armada so heres what i think they could do: Hasbro could start a new "unicron trilogy" but based off G1 where unicron has arrived and the autobots and decepticons team up to face him and his heralds. While the characters are still G1 they acquire new forms to combat the heralds and these forms just happen to look like a combination of G1 and armada designs. As for a linewide gimmick, the minicons who originally helped the thirteen combat unicron years ago, have returned to battle the chaos bringer once again and powerlink with the bigger bots to bestow upon them weapons from primus himself who is revealed to be cybertron itself and transforms to finish Unicron once and for all! (With some Minicons being corrupted by the heralds to serve their side) But thats just my idea. If they do bring Unicron in War for Cybertron as the final titan for the line instead of his own trilogy id still be all for it and buy the heck out of him.

    Considering how damn near perfect these new ones are, hopefully they take inspiration from other iterations of Optimus and Megatron for future figures in the trilogy.
    For example, an easy one would be a generations style Animated Megatron. It's still a very G1-inspired design, but different enough that I think it could be pretty interesting. Alex Milne drew a pretty cool take on this recently:

    Like I said part 2 could be about who stayed or perhaps a story about landing on a new planet along the way where the decepticons follow and another battle takes place. Which opens the door for more G1 autobots and Decepticons to be made and released that were not in part 1.
