    Who do you want to see tehm repainted into?

    BB is obviously getting a Cliffjumper repaint, judging by the different head in the instructions.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I think Soundwave should get a Sonic White treatment. I don't have anything against Soundblaster, I just think he's a bit overdone.

    Cliffjumper was confirmed at Botcon.

    I'd like to see Megatron as Galvatron, the design of the toy lends itself to Galvatron just as well as Megatron.

    Well Blurr is already getting a repaint of Drift but with a different headsculpt and weaponry. I'd say OP into Magnus..

    I'd like to see the same characters with more metallic, game-accurate colors. Or overshields.

    I like this idea, new colors and a new head would make this a perfect Galvatron.

    It wouldn't surprise me if WFC Optimus Prime's mold gets used for WFC Ultra Magnus, with the possibility of it being slightly retooled or just be a simple repaint.

    Ultra Magnus wouldn't work unless they just wanted to be lazy.

    Maybe a Soundblaster repaint of Soundwave.

    And when has that stopped any of the other 'white Prime' Magnuses?

    Most of the time when that happens, UM either has no established appearance in that series anyway, or else it's a G1 or G1-based line where UM has the "white OP" cab robot. There is an established design for WfC UM that isn't just a repaint of OP; in fact, it doesn't seem to involve any OP-like cab at all (except maybe buried under all that armor somewhere).

    I must be in the minority as I like the whole White Prime Ultra Magnus thing, seeing as how under his armor Magnus WAS A WHITE OPTIMUS PRIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why does everyone have such a problem with this? Baffling...

    At any rate, I want a Magnus repainted from Prime, Galvy from Megs, Soundblaster from Soundwave, and the already mentioned Cliffjumper. This list will of course change once they have more molds announced.

    Didn't Breakdown have the same body shell as Soundwave? I'll take that.

    Eff it, paint the Prime in blue and silver and call him WFC Pipes, I'll buy one.
    Just to be different, I'd also take a WFC Glyph, Bugbite or Tap-Out.
    I'm sure you could make a WFC Perceptor / Magnificus from Megatron, too.

    No, Breakdown had a smaller shell. I'd love a Breakdown, it's my favorite scout in the game.

    And in the DS game he's a completely different model. If they make it, I'm sure you'll get it, but I'll pass.

    As it stands, if they make an UM who doesn't have a Prime inner bot and is all armored version and alt mode, I'll get it. If they make the White Prime version, I'll get it. I just don't exclude the inner bot because he didn't get shown on the cartoon that way. I think it can be agreed upon that the inner bot reveal in the DW comic was the highlight of the series.

    BB = Cliffjumper, Wasp,

    OP = Nemesis, Metallic, Motormaster

    SW = Blaster, First Aid,

    Megs = Metallic, Metallic, Metallic...

    Both Optimus and Megatron need to be repainted with better paint apps.

    Metallic or atleast Megs needs more silver... Nice mold, but terrible (un) paint job...

    Cant they rerelase the set with a special edition of the game (with DLC) ???

    For 60 bucks, I'd buy it...

    A Nemisis version of the WFC Prime would look so, so nice.

    Deadend and Zeta Prime would be my choices for new molds. They're amazing.
