    Will there be any other figures made other than Cliffjumper? I have Soundwave, Megatron, Prime and Bumblebee. was just hoping for some of the aerial bots and maybe some of the other leader bots that were in the game.

    I'm kind of hoping for a Warpath toy, he was sorta bad ass if you ask me, Brawl too.

    IIRC, Hasbro said they were going to see how well the current run of WFC toys did, before making a commitment to produce additional figures. Nothing more has come out since then, so all we have to go on are guesses.

    My guess is probably not. For a couple reasons:

    1) WFC Optimus and Bumblebee seem to be shelf-warming quite a bit.

    2) Except for Cliffjumper, there aren't any obvious repaints that can be done with the existing molds. A new WFC figure would need to be a new mold, which means more cost to Hasbro which in turn raises their bar on how well the existing figures would need to do for them to sink more money into producing new toys (see pt#1)

    3) The WFC videogame has been out for a few months now. A big selling point of the WFC figures was their tie-in to the game, a pull that is less relevant as time passes and fewer people are interested in/actively playing the game.

    4) We have a pretty good idea of what product is coming out through Spring 2011, and none of it, save for Cliffjumper, appears to be WFC related. In Summer of 2011 we start getting into TF3 movie territory, where the big push will be movie toys..

    Maybe if we get a WFC sequel, we could expect more figure later, around the time it is released.

    I'd love some WFC Seekers, but If we were gonna get some you'd think we have heard something by now. Cliffjumper looks like he is only coming out cause he was an easy repaint, I don't remember him even being in the game.

    Maybe if WFC gets a sequel we will get a new wave with new molds to tie into it.

    Of course EVERYTHING from the first runs of generations and HFTD (except HA Jazz) are shelf warming here. I'll be surprised if anything beyond maybe second or third wave makes its way onto shelves here before we start getting movie stuff.

    This is why I use BBTS so much. There's a very long list of toys that never showed up here from different lines.

    I love to see WfC Shockwave and Warpath toys. WfC figures are really precious.

    yeah for now cliffjumper is it, with starscream on the short-list to get one next

    right now, to save money, i am skipping the WFC figures, i want them, but so much stuff is coming out i got to be selective, same for the HFTD line, for the most part i got to skip them all for now

    Warpath, Zeta Prime, Demolishor, or Slipstream would be epic.

    Valid points. But Megatron could be retooled into Galvatron with some new parts (head, cannon, and chest piece.). And if Hasbro was to make a new WFC mold it would more than likely be Starscream. A sequel would be more likely to get new figures too.

    Shockwave, Seekers (especially Starscream and Slipstream), Warpath, Jetfire, and Arcee all come to mind. But I agree with Shogun221 on every point made, I don't think unless we see future Generations stuff, it will be released. Sad.

    As for Optimus and Bumblebee, the reason for the shelfwarming is because the stores ordered too much, and HasTak shipped too soon. They ship as produced when ordered, so the orders came in too many, too soon from the stores. Retailers don't care or understand about 'wave releases', they just order in bulk.

    Seeing as WFC Prime was the first Transformer I bought in a decade and I now own all WFC figures, yeah I want more. I made sure to buy them to show support for them so I can get characters I really want.

    Basically I want the entire game cast.

    I might pass on Cliffjumper because I dislike BB's mold and Cliffjumper wasn't in the game. Then again I might get him just to show support for WFC figures. Don't know.

    Trust me...if Hasbro wanted to repaint some of the WFC Line they would:

    Prime + White paint = Ultra Magnus
    Prime + Black paint = Nemesis Prime
    Soundwave + Black Paint = Soundblaster
    Megatron + Purple = Galvatron
    with a different head and red Colour megs could make a poor Warpath too.

    I think we will see starsceam next, his a favourite..the seekers always sell well.

    I think they should repaint Soundwave as Blaster too.

    I could see Ratchet and Ironhide from Soundwave happening at some point.


    Hopefully we'll get the WFC Seekers, WFC Shockwave and Warpath. Hell Warpath and Shockwave could work for the CHUG collection.

    We all want a Shockwave and Warpath toy. Hope they will appear in some wave.
