    OKay, X-Transbots has already released or teased:

    X-1 "Glider" which is Powerglide.
    X-2 "Survivor" will be Wheelie.
    X-3 "Tyrant" will be Galvatron.
    X-7 "Arsenal for Primus" which is Ironhide.

    Well, now the X-Transbots facebook page has teased "X4 is Cyberwinds, X5 is Scouts, X6 is the second man of Prime."

    Who do you think those will be?

    I'm guessing Cybewinds will be a jet... Starscream or Jetfire?
    Scouts - Bumblebee?
    Second Man of Prime - Prowl? Jazz?

    You are right, "second man of prime" could be Ultra Magnus.

    "Cyberwinds" could also be Cyclonus, as we saw some prototypes of him.

    I was thinking Cyclonus, Bee, and Magnus myself. Although with the profound BB overload from the first parties, I would hope a third party group wouldn't waste their time. Unless maybe it was a licensed VW, then that would be cool.

    You know there are other "scouts" in TFs. Hound, Groove, Breakdown... there was a Moonracer custom prototype out there too.

    What's the point of having 7 projects and annoucing them out of order if you can't get the second one out

    It's just a prototype box, Tyrant was the Galvatron name, which was on the Powerglide box. I'm guessing when Wheelie comes out it will become Cyberwinds. Some of the prototype boxes and cards for their Bad Boy had old Powerglide info on them too, but when they came out it was updated.

    I might be wayyyy off here but I thought Galvatron was tyrant 1, cyclonus was 3 and scourge was presumed to be tyrant 2?

    Yes, I think you are off. The way the X-Transbots people explain it...

    X1 is Glider (Powerglide)
    X2 is Survivor (Wheelie)
    X3 is Tyrant (Galvatron)
    X4 is Cyberwinds (Cyclonus)
    X5 is Scouts (unrevealed... Bumblebee? Hound? Someone else?)
    X6 is Second of Prime (probably Ultra Magnus?)
    X7 is Arsenal of Primus (Ironhide)

    The "X" series are all stand alone robots with 2 modes. The triple changers, add ons sets and combiners are other series.

    Interesting, I learned X-Transbots seems to be coming back slowly and some of these guys are back on the table.

    Scouts could be the Sweeps. I mean, they're teasing Galvatron, Cyclonus, Wheelie, and Ultra Magnus ... there's a definite theme there. And Eagle did make a Scourge garage kit relatively recently, so there's that they can copy (also fitting the theme).

    CHMS Ultra Magnus - YouTube - that's how it transforms. 2011 .... it seems like longer.

    X-Transbots has a lot to prove. Glider was an ok KO, but it isn't amazing. And they're taking forever with any other release.

    X-Transbots commented that they are contracting out to a new factory now, one with better QC.
