    .....Ultra Magnus, Blaster, Nemesis Prime/Scourge, Springer and Dinobots(any).

    I'm not expecting all of them. But surely Magnus is a key one.

    Are they likely in your opinion or could they be pulled off with repaints/retools? E.g. Magnus from WFC Prime? Blaster from WFC Soundwave/RTS Perceptor? Nemesis Prime from G2 Prime?

    Or do they warrant new figures?

    Also aren't the deluxe Autobot triple changers overdue after getting AstroTrain and Octane already?

    VERY sure the G2 prime mold will be redecoed into scourge, (unless proven otherwise and I missed it.) so I wouldn't sweat that one.

    Hasbro!! Blaster and Trailbreaker or you Phail!!!:tongue:

    hopefully the rest of the dinobots and sludge gets a voyager at least. I'd like to see trailbreaker,Ultra magnus,Blitzwing and brawn. I have Springer(warbot, and hasbro wouldnt be able to come close).Hope to see a Rodimus Prime in all honesty too.

    We've already had Classics Magnus and Nemesis Prime from Classics Prime (former as Target exclusive, latter as SDCC exclusive), Blaster from Cybertron Soundwave in the Universe 2.0 line, Springer in that Universe 2.0 set with Dirge (Target exclusive IIRC) and Classics Grimlock.

    So we've had them mostly. Maybe some more Dinobots but doubtful as they're not as iconic as Grimlock and therefore likely to sell less, I'd think.

    True but we've had a "true" Dirge released. It seems another RatBat is on the way despite the Springer vs RatBat set. We've also have 3 Primes (WFC, G2, United Re-Release) and just 1 Megatron in that time frame. Could easily be opportunities for a Magnus and Nemesis Prime to appear.

    There is plenty of room for some deluxes to appear despite namesakes being released before.

    The Cybertron Blaster repaint was ok but if that closes off the chances of a new "true" Blaster then that's a very poor show.

    It's really stupid to ask if we'll ever get something. We don't know. It's not like we can tell the future.
    But past that, I'd like to say that we're definitely not getting all of those immediately. I'd try after the third movie stuff dies out.

    i could see them doing a "laser magnus" repaint...or g2 scourge....

    easy and obviously lazy repaint would cost little...and gets hasbro more $$$ from fans and kids...

    personally i would pony up $$ for another version of scourge.

    Magnus and Nemesis already got the Classics treatment, but I'd love to see a Generations/RTS Blaster. The Universe 2.0 one doesn't really count.

    Considering the existence of the new G2 Optimus, it will be a total crime on Hasbro's part if he isn't repainted as Scourge.

    I'm not saying it doesn't count as in it never happened. I'm saying that it should have been a new mold instead of a repaint of Cybertron Soundwave, a terrible mold IMO.

    Yes, a more iconic Blaster would be vastly preferred.

    That was never going to happen. They needed to get out some repaints of Cybertron voyager molds, universe was where old line repaints are most common.

    Besides Cybertronian mode Blaster, DONE!

    I am really hoping for a Blitzwing. Maybe FansProject can take care of that if HASBRO does not...

    With the movie stuff coming out soon, I'm sure that the Generations stuff will slow down considerably. I don't see them putting out and another Ultra Magnus/Nemesis Prime of the Classics Prime mold. Maybe the G2 Prime though. Blaster would be cool, as would Springer, but I'm not holding my breath. The last Dinobot shelf-warmed bad all throughout this region, so I'm not seeing another one of those anytime soon.

    I just wish I could find the Generations and RTS figures that are released allready, nevermind the ones that havn't been made yet.

    I just hope the line continues through DOTM.
