    If the Bruticus upgrade set does anywhere NEAR as well as it should, I'm betting FP might make a Devestator upgrade set.

    For both Classics AND Movie Devestator. You just KNOW someone wants a pair of wrecking balls for their Supreme Devestator.

    You don't suppose that they'd actually try and attempt an updated and fully articulated Sixshot, do you?....Nah, probably not.

    I'm kinda anxious to see what this Glacierbot combiner is going to look like.

    Defender is not broadside. Defender's the triple changing helicopter-car-robot that's gray/green/yellow.

    There might be another triple changer that turns into a boat, plane, and robot with gray and red but i forget what Fp's name for him is.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they do a Devastator upgrade set. Whether it's something simple like the Superion kit (new hands, new feet, head accessory, chest plate) or they make 1 - 2 new limbs for it, rounding out the set of Energon-mold combiners seems the logical way to go next.

    Now that they've got the Bruticus set coming down the pipe, I'd also love it if they'd make an upgrade kit for Nexus Maximus. It would just be a matter of mixing some parts from the Bruticus and Superion kits (one hand and one foot from the Superion set, the helicopter arm attachments and one foot from the Bruticus set) and casting them in translucent red plastic.

    The Nexus kit would be far from profitable though, I know FP don't set out to make tonnes of money but they don't want to lose any either.

    There's the pic. It is not named yet.

    Warbot is the name of a series (From a designer, i believe). Defender, Collector, and Broadside are all Warbots.

    Protector probably falls into their Parallax series.

    Crossfire might include the Bruticus and Devastator upgrades

    Salutation appears to be their animal combiner

    I'm pretty sure the projects they have at the moment will keep them busy for a while :) 
    I'm not sure if there will be a repaint of the Protector set, because there's no repaint of Classics Rodimus (except for the Botcon one)

    I can't see it doing that badly and you haven't provided any reason why you think it would be far from profitable. I forget the exact number of how many Club freebies were produced each year (1500?), but I'd imagine a good number of people who completed the Nexus Maximus combiner wouldn't mind an upgrade kit to improve it. Plus, using the method I described, FP wouldn't be spending any money designing new parts, since they're just mixing and matching pieces from the Superion and Bruticus kits. I don't see it being much different than the exclusive "Snowman" Superion kit FP made for TFSource: A smaller-run set (500 pieces) using already-designed pieces molded in a different colour of plastic.

    I'm hoping they make a upgrade kit for Classics/Energon Devastator.

    I'd also like to see them finish up the 86 movie characters. They've already shown pictures of Wreck Gar, but what about Arcee and Kup. They could possibly do Scourge but I think Hasbro may make him when Classics 3.0 rolls around.

    The upgrade to Classics Devastator seems very likely. If they do another full-on figure, I'd like to see them do a G1 Shockwave update. It would be a fairly natural choice, if Hasbro isn't willing to do a laser pistol due to the risks on anything that looks remotely like a gun. The transformation shouldn't be too difficult and it didn't originate as a Takara mold either. Maybe tweak it so both arms can have either hand or gun attachments and do something so the gun barrel stores on the figure in robot mode (maybe on the arms like that canceled Titanium version from a few years ago).

    I'd love a God Ginrai version of the Commander armour.

    The rest of the G1 movie Autobots, I suppose.

    Althought you could make a Nexus Prime from combining the kits, the official limbs are switched; tank arm, helicopter leg.

    I bought a 2nd superion upgrade kit and split it with Lumpy. The idea was to do the same with Bruticus so we could upgrade Nexus.

    But I think Explorer kinda kills that idea. Oh well

    Other than Nexus I want Devastator. :)

    I actually wish they'd stop making characters such as Springer, and apparently Wreck-Gar (I haven't seen those pictures yet). I'm afraid doing so would keep HasTak from making them themselves.

    Stick to the up-grade kits.
