My short list for what I want next:

Prowl/other Datsuns
Cyclonus
Kup

I would say Galvatron, but honestly his alt mode sucks so badly that it would be a waste. Cyclonus up there is his placeholder.

My thinking was more along the lines of "use the Soundwave 'skeleton' and remold all the outer parts" just because their transformation schemes are pretty similar. More of a total reshell than a remold. It wouldn't at all be like remolding MP Sideswipe into Sunstreaker, which would be impossible since their transformation schemes are completely different.

I just think that if MP Blaster is something they want to get to someday, they may not have to start from scratch if they can use the basic design from Soundwave. And they seem to want to push more MP's out at a faster rate than before, so they may be looking for any opportunities to use their existing engineering for other characters.

I go with the majority opinion that there are plenty of figures I would prefer they do before Blaster. BUT, if Blaster was announced as the next MP, I would not at all complain and hit pre-order just as quickly.

I think they'll go again after 3rd party companies.

So MP Megatron and MP Ironhide/Ratchet.

let's be realistic, next one is either another prime, or soundblaster.
