    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.

    All this talk of bumblebee makes me wonder how they’d do it in scale without a legends class anymore. Do they just release a tiny deluxe? Do they pack in a battlemaster?

    With all the movie merchandise I don’t see how u sell a tiny BB when there’s so many other size classes/types to choose at around the same prices and at the same time.

    From the look of Studio Series, I unfortunately doubt Hasbro has any reservations about selling Legends/Basic/Scout-sized figures at Deluxe prices. But there is kinda hope, if a situation like Leader Shockwave is an option for 'Bee and similar-sized bots.

    Maybe Legends 2-packs at the Deluxe pricepoint?

    I wouldn’t bet on it, rather he’d include a bunch of armor/weapons like Shockwave.... who is actually shorter then Megatron when you remove the boots.

    Looking at Siege.

    Red Alert is a redo of Sideswipe. Prowl is looking to become a Barricade. It doesn’t seem too far fetched that Impactor could just be a retool from Hound.

    I mean in CW they both derived from the Rook mold. Also like Impactor, Hound has a wide torso, bulky legs, and does have a shoulder mount as well.

    Watch for when Leader Optimus Prime is revealed and the trailer transforms into a battle platform. The Turbomaster fans will lose it!

    Ironhide is more likely, since he'd be a tall deluxe.

    I think the trailer becomes this

    I'm thinking that Ultra Magnus might get retooled into Thunderclash
    He's really the only one who I can think of off the top of my head whose G1 toy somewhat matches that design (But even that's a stretch)

    I'm predicting that the rumored leader class optimus will probably be a retool of ultra Magnus and we will get a brand new leader class later on.

    I so hope you are wrong.
    If they are going to be so cynical they should at least do them from RID or the UT.
    But it would be nice to go without the Kings of boredom for a while.
    Statsaber and Deathsaurus would be nice.

    If Bumblebee is based more on his flying-saucer car mode from the G1 cartoon, he might be slightly shorter in robot mode while making it up by being wider than average in vehicle mode. And come with more or larger accessories.

    I would be down for that and if they make him small enough theres a chance they could also make a deluxe wheeljack that could carry him in vehicle mode (hopefully they also make clifffjumper and glyph remolds)
