    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)

    I will say that it is likely that we'll get a Leader Class Optimus Prime, but it will more than likely be one of his other incarnations.
    Another possibility is that we'll see some other Primes from over the years. Who knows. I guess we'll have to find out when we find out

    Honestly, Armada incarnations of the Leaders would have been pretty cool. Hope to see a return of Megatron and Optimus from the Armada side. Their designs were my favorite and they give me so much childhood memories. But please, let's get Star Saber and Deathsaurus first. :D
