    What do you guys think about the possibility of the Robot Heroes line expanding to include a shuttle or some kind of vehicle? I like how they did the Sentinel and Apocalypse in larger sizes for the Super Hero Squad. Anyone think there a chance for combiners being made that large also? Other than predaking which they made small :/

    Probably in the slim to none category. :(

    There is Predaking, but It'd be cooler if they were in scale! I might even buy a 6/8 inch "chibi" combiner guy. :p  Abominus!

    Well, we are getting a Predaking... but he's like Unicron and the same size as the others. Sucks... I'd like to see them do something like Mega packs (w/Apocalypse & Galactus) from the Marvel Super Heroes Squad line.

    I can see us getting some larger RH figs, but not till the RotF line starts.

    Yeah, maybe once the movie comes out... but if that's the case I wish they'd have held off on Predaking then. Meh... I'll still get it...

    I would not have figured we'd get some but then I thought about things that Star Wars (vehicles) and Marvel (larger figures like Galactus and Giant-Man) have gotten, so who knows? Actually that now makes me a little sad that Predaking is the same small size as the others.

    I would love it if they made the Ark, or a mountain playset with the Ark sticking out of it.

    I really don't care about larger Robot Heroes, but I'd be all over some Dino-mode Dinobots.

    This. Maybe an Axalon, too. (Unlikely, but hey)

    I can't say I care much about vehicles or playsets. I like that RH's don't take up a lot of space, even when there's a lot of them. What I would like to see from them is:

    * larger size figures for combiner / city / planet robots, like some of the other 'heroes' lines have done'

    * Beast mode figures for characters known almost as well or better for that mode (Dinobots, Sharkticons, maybe a Maximal or Predacon here or there.)

    Yeah I was mad we didn't get Unicron as the size of Sentinel or Galactus, that would've been perfect.

    I love the robot Hero line I can't wait to see what they have this time.

    I for one would love some vehicle-mode Robot Heroes... particularly the Seekers, Dinobots, and Diaclone cars. Although really, the Diaclone cars done RH-style would just look like choro-Q G1 minibots. :) 

    It'll never happen, though. We're lucky enough to even get ONE figure per character, and there is no way the vehicle modes would be as marketable/iconic as the robot modes.

    A few larger-scale figures would be welcome. Maybe not for combiners, but for Citybots. I can live without them, though.... the sense of scale in RH is already non-existent, so might as well keep it that way and produce more figures. I'd take a 2-inch tall Metroplex plus one other figure over a five-inch tall Metroplex alone.

    I'd be all for some alt mode and larger scale RHs. With that kind of variety you could set up some really nice display shelves with RHs alone.

    Honestly, I wouldn't count on it expanding beyond its current format. As much as I'd love to see some of the others get bigger releases.

    Or indeed, for there to be more Japanese G1 homages. Let's say go, Victory Saber!
