    Imagine a line of Tf figures based entirely on the look and design of the game characters, complete with Deluxe, Voyager and Leader classes, and heaps of accessories: Maces, Axes, and all the myriad snap-on BMFGs seen in the game.
    Highlights would include Leader Class versions of Optimus and Megatron, Voyager class Seekers, and an Ultra-class for fully transformable toy versions of Trypticon and Omega supreme (the latter coming with the transformable cannon for Megatron to hook into :) )

    Truth is, I'm a little surprised that Hasbro's been quite conservative on this front.

    So, who'd dig a line like this? :)  Feel free to add any suggestions, since dreams are what make reality!

    I totally would. :D 

    I mean, there's already Generations, HFD, PCC and whatnot already so I don't think there's much room for Hasbro for that kind of thing. And besides, I would not be able to handle another line I would have to splurge into. :p 

    But the idea sounds awesome. I love the designs, and given the four molds we are getting/have, they would make for kickass toys.

    Personally, Hasbro's been giving us an amazing line of stuff so far, so I'm fairly content with what they have out for us now. As much as I'd love a full sized line of WFC figures, it's probably as likely to happen as Animated Season 4, and leader class Blackout. :(

    I was let down with the game, so I think I'm good with what we have.

    In an ideal world, I could see it working, and it would definitely be cool. Soundwave's design could use the upgrade to a Voyager class figure, and some of the concept art designs would be really cool to see in toy-form, imho. Especially Hot Rod and Ultra Magnus. Arcee and Slipstream would be interesting to see too.

    Though considering their inclusion in Generations, I really hope the five we know we're getting sell well. That way Hasbro might be convinced to make more of them.

    as long as it doesn't reduce the generations or the new shows figures I'd like to get as many characters as possible

    If it happens it will be a part of the TF Prime line since they are the same mythos. Hasbro has said Prime doesn't currently have toys planned (which is absolute insanity as far as I'm concerned, a TF show NEEDS toys, especially with the new blue Arcee).

    I would love to see some more wfc toys. Shockwave, Arcee, Warpath, Slipstream, and tons more would all make great figs.

    I'm including the Cliffjumper repaint of Bumblebee that has the alternate head sculpt on it.

    It's bound to have a toy-line of some sort at some point. Hasbro's probably just keeping a really tight lid on it till they want to reveal it. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Yeah I'd be surprised if we DIDN'T get some Prime toys. And even if the styling is different, at least they'll all go together. Who knows, maybe at the start of the show the bots will have Cybertronian modes so we can get some more WFC-ish stuff.

    I don't think Leader class figures would be necessary, Leaders, Soldiers, and Jets are roughly the same size while Scouts are smaller. Voyager and deluxe would work fine. After playing the game I would LOVE figures of all the characters. A WFC Shockwave and Slipstream would be epic.

    I'd also love game accurate weapons. I'm kinda disappointed by the guns that come with Prime and BB, neither are very accurate to the game

    I'd love to see ultra or leaders sized toy versions of WFC OR Prime Trypticon & Omega supreme.

    Since I don't play video games,I haven't a clue of what the other WFC TF video games designs look like. I'm only familiar with WFC prime,meg,bumblebee,soundwave. WFC starscream reminds me of Rotf deluxe thrust's design.

    YES!

    Yeah, it's a pity Prime didn't come with his axe.

    I kinda like the idea of an entire deluxe based line (which it seems like WFC is going), with the exception of the two supreme class figures we'll never get :(  It will be very interesting to see where Hasbro goes with WFC. So far the toys are turning out pretty good (far better then these crap PCC figs). Bumblebee is a little weak in bot form, but Prime is nice. The recent video review of Megs looks promising too.

    No they didn't. They said they had nothing to announce at this time. Huge difference.

    nope. don't want, need or care for a separate WfC line.
    some of the characters would make decent figures, but i am not for a dedicated line. I am really pleased with the status quo- minus the odd voyager and larger classes being outside of Generations- and what more do youse want for nuthin?

    as it is, the flow of new stuff is healthy, and balanced nicely. i am happy.

    I'm sure more will come through generations line. A whole other sub line is doubtful. Maybe in Asia.
