    Like the title says what are the chances? If they could do it with War of Cybertron/ Fall of Cybertron, why not?

    Not to be a knob, but this should be in the third party forum, as I can't see Takbro pulling the trigger on this. We got a Prime train already, Shockwave / Cyclops this year (soon we hope), Insecticons are being worked on.
    Rumours of a HoS Starscream are abound, but to me, MMC have staked their claim on the HoS universe and if they're not making it, it's doubtful I'll bite.

    For the record, I'd love it if Hasbro made these, as I support their toys first and foremost where possible.

    Pretty sure the question is "will Hasbro make them"

    I'd say no way.

    I don't think so, but if they did I'd probably buy some of them. I haven't read the comic yet, but I like the designs and the concept.

    It doesn't seem too likely from Hasbro since comic books just don't have the same sort of exposure that cartoons, video games and movies do these days.

    I guess for Hasbro to put the time and effort into the figures you'd have to figure out what the appeal would be to kids for Hearts of Steel toys.

    Zero to none.

    3rd Party to the rescue.

    I own the MMC HOS Optimus Prime & love it, but...transformation is a bit too simple. Would've liked it if the transformation had been a bit more challenging...he also could've been bigger. But for what it is & for their first figure, I LOVE it. Can't wait for their Shockwave & Ultra Magnus!

    Probably not.
    Comics not mainstream enough to support a line.
    Third party best bet here.

    Because WfC/FoC is new and in a very visible and marketable medium, while Hearts of Steel is... (pause to consult wiki)... six years old and much more obscure.

    You can find the Transformers video game at retailers like Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, Toys-R-Us, and similar stores. To find a copy of a comic book these days though requires you to find the few remaining comic book stores that are left. With the way book stores are closing it's even getting hard to find the trades of comic books any more.
