    If they did them. We'll restrict ourselves to three new molds like in Universe.




    I'd like Scorponok, Fortress Maximus, and Metroplex. Trypticon would be a repaint of Cybertron Scourge. That would work.


    They would not be city bots though. Scorponok would transform into a scorpion, Metroplex would transform into a modern version of his ground transport mode and Fortress Maximus would transform into a modern version of his space station transport mode (or whatever it was). Scorponok would not be a headmaster but Fortress Maximus' head could transform into a Legends sized Cerebros (obviously Cerebros would not have a detachable head himself).

    I think Scorponok, Metroplex, and Fort Max deserves >leader class.

    we are considered the "ultra" size as in, the class size between Voyager and Leader right? 30$ price point in the past?

    I would dare say, Sixshot, Shockwave, Warpath

    I reckon Ultra-sized versions of Sixshot, Grimlock, BW Rampage, Star Saber and Victory Leo would be pretty nifty too!

    I've bought into the idea of Fort Max as a not-giant-city-base a la IDW. However, I'd be for pretty much any Autobot worthy of that size class: Fort Max, Metroplex, Omega Supreme, Dinobots, Warpath, IDW Hardhead, etc.

    I like the idea of Sixshot, too.

    Any of these three.

    Sludge
    Motormaster
    Scattorshot
    Razorclaw
    Hot Spot (Zone)
    Ultra Magnus
    Six Shot

    I miss the Ultra size class :(

    we haven't had a good "multi-changer" in a while that goes past 3. The last I remember was Megatron and Gigatron from RiD, and a lot of it was "its a XXX cuz we say so!", I long for the day where they do a quad+ changer properly in the real line.

    (yes I understand shockwave animated)

    I would go Omega Supreme, Metroplex, and Trypticon. Fort Max deserves a Leader Class toy and if Fort Max is Leader Class, I guess a new Skorponok should be as well. But please no Cybertron Scourge as Trypticon. That mold was nice at the time but it is time to retire it, besides I currently have Cyberton Scourge as a stand in for a "Classics" Predaking.

    I'm not much of a fan of the Ultra class, but I think the OP had the right idea. It can work for big blocky sorts of guys. And I'm all for seeing a Classics Fort Max and Scorponok at a managable size.

    There are lots of various characters to choose, and just about any G1/G2/BW homage would be great with me, but what I'd like to see in Ultras is a bit more imagination in the engineering.

    Most Ultras are just bigger. That's all. Nothing else really different from a voyager or deluxe except lights/sounds and bigger.

    I'd want Ultras designed with some 'gimmick' that needs some extra size/extra budget. I don't want just a larger robot that changes into a larger vehicle, but something more creative like Armada Tidalwave. So do something like Overlord or Skylynx or Omega Supreme as a rocket base like G1 Countdown, including a rocket that forms the arms.

    Or PM Prime: a 'scout' sized cab with a combining trailer. or Star Saber: a jet robot with larger combining "Trailer"

    Or a better executed multi-changer: Sixshot or Broadside(with an aircraft carrier mode fit to interact with minicons/legend aircraft)

    Or some other large vehicle to interact with smaller TFs: car carrier, Transport aircraft/space shuttle with internal cargo bay, Maybe a new Prime+Mirage set: Mirage transforms into race car, Prime transforms into Cab+flat bed trailer/race car transport

    Or some multi-unit set that combines/interacts: perhaps 'Clones': get 2 figures a bit over deluxe size that transform but also combine into a larger vehicle or combined robot. Not simply a multi-pack, but a multi-pack with some purpose of putting them together.

    Just do something different, something more than just: "Vehicle changes to Robot and Back"

    Though in the category of simple robot/alt mode, I'd love an Ultra Sludge, but that seems very, very unlikely.

    I believe they missed their opportunity to put to bed the argument about a large-scale Lugnut, which would have been awesome as an Ultra-size figure.

    I would have liked to see some more NEST style Headmasters updates. Weirdwolf, Hosehead, Skullcruncher, Fangry, and Brainstorm specifically.

    Not Omega Supreme.

    People would only complain that he isn't Leader class, or Supreme class, or Ultimate class.
