Just because a character gets a toy doesn't mean he will be in the show. Although its fairly obvious that certain characters will always be in the shows...Optimus, Bumblebee, Duke, Snake Eyes will (almost) certainly be included....And this toy looks pretty bad ass!!

The Autobots might sell better but that doesn't mean Hasbro isn't ever going to release a larger sized Decepticon again. Predaking getting larger size class toy is proof that Hasbro isn't exactly giving up on larger villains. The voyager would have really been enough but they went above that. Getting a Decepticon, or rather a Megatron one to be specific, Weaponizer is not really out of the question. It never has been.
True, they never said no to any larger Decepticons ever again, but that's not what I said at all. It is true that they've used the "Autobots sell better" excuse before. DotM Sentinel, evil as he was, does NOT count as a Decepticon. His toys were marketed as an Autobot. Also, I'm not saying that it's impossible, just very unlikely, and like I said, Predaking is a special case, as he's apparently a very important element to season three's plot.

I would agree with you if this wasn't an entirely new mold. There is potential for this to be a toy-only redesign, but I doubt it is. It would help if we had a picture of his Beast Hunters Weaponizer. If it's also a new mold, than that would be enough confirmation for me to say he's still alive, but if it turns out to be a repaint, maybe even a slight retool...I would wonder why they bothered with the new design for the Commander figure at all...

He's supposed to have a rather large part in season three. So much so that he's apparently going to be on most, if not all, of the Beast Hunters packaging. Makes sense that Hasbro would make a uniquely sized figure for such an apparently important character.
I don't know if that is a mantra or not. Remember, it was at Toy Fair 2011 that someone asked why there were no Leader Decepticons for Dark of the Moon and Hasbro said good guys sell better.

But Sentinel Prime wasn't a good guy. And the Decepticons always seem to sell fine. I think Hasbro just said that to, you know, avoid revealing the spoiler that Sentinel Prime was a bad guy.

Hmm, hard to tell what has changed with his alt mode from the pic. Whats with the Road warrior grill? Are they going for a more aggressive look for the characters to the point of them having a caveman look? I hope they don't adopt the Chunkimus prime look from the game or Energon Fatimus Prime.

A lot of people are overlooking Prime swinging his Star Saber downwards before the Nemesis' beam blew up the base. Why have him do that instead of just do the Titanic captain scene and stand there and accept his fate? The Star Saber was glowing too...I believe he managed to make a way to escape/get under the base before the mountain collapsed but his other arm was caught during the escape.

Prime is alive as much as Wheeljack is (who, let's face it, had a pretty obvious 'I'm still alive' 'death'). He'll probably show up mid-season/season finale. Remember, the Autobots are inhiding this season...Optimus probably scanned a new alt mode for that reason--that's how I see it anyways.

Saw Cybverse Commander Bulkhead? Looks like they're jsut throwing armor and heavy weapons onto the characters... and a crap ton of spikes. I'm all with you though, I liked the Prime in this series, I don't need ot see him boxed and fattened up like the previous versions...although something like RID would be okay I guess (he was big and had chunky parts, but was still sleek elsewhere)

I'm guessing there's no weaponizer Megatron because they might not be able to get his design to work with the gimmick.
Here's a list of stuff I'm looking for!

^This.

I mean with the alien jet mode he has... could really see their actually be a working figure out of that? Because I don't.

However If Megatron got a new alt. mode i wouldn't object to having one.

I'd love it if he took the alt mode of a black Stealth Bomber like in the IDW comics because his cybertronian mode does look to be a bomber plane of some sort.
