    Yeah a nice glossy black would be awesome, and I'm sure they'll do the red on him, but I'd love if they actually did purple like the canceled online game.
    If they don't try to retool him into a hearse at the very least I hope the ambulance is Gothic as hell to make up for it.

    I think we assume it would be a new mold but just see vector prime he was a core character from cybertron and we have all previous characters as new molds in recent years, that the other 2 are new molds doesnt mean hasbro would do whatever they want

    The difference is that Jhiaxus is a Voyager and Cannonball isn't

    to be honest, it was already stated flatline is probably from red alert, and if so, that would 2 of the exact same mold sharing primary colors that aren't the same characters, and also, what would they add to flatline that they would add to armada red alert that make sense

    I'm worried it won't be a hearse at all. Best case it'll be a minor enough retool that it's just a regular black SUV and can be customized into a police coroner van, but I'm worried they'll try to turn it into an APC like in IDW which I feel like ruins the whole charm of the character.

    If it can't be a hearse, then a police corner van would be a fine enough compromise to me. I agree I do not want him to be an apc.

    Ooo good choice too. The red might me a little “unoriginal” but purple would look fresh and original. I would love either honestly!
    This would be disheartening but maybe if he is just a police SUV we could get a retooled IDW Prowl from him.
    Agreed.

    "Back when Mowry was trying to think up a Generation 1-based story to pitch, he also asked Ben Templesmith to sketch for him what a Generation 1 version of Flatline might look like. Templesmith ended up producing a sketch based around Flatline transforming into a 1960s model hearse."
    This is in (movieverse) Flatline's notes. I don't remember if it's mentioned anywhere else, but to me it fits him perfectly where as the idw apc isn't a good choice for him.

    So guys. I had the most cursed thought.

    What if next year's Aerialbots have details to reference the Energon Superion Maximus guys. So they aren't 100% G1 and instead of a toy giftset like Menasor we get an Energon Pulse exclusive Superion Maximus.

    G1 only guys might not like it that's why I called it cursed.
    It would be a curse for wallet because I would probably buy the Superion Maximus

    The cool version of Flatline was from the ROTF comic and turned into a vintage hearse. This made him fairly memorable for such a minor character not only because it was a unique alt mode, but because he's a medic and the idea of a medic who turns into a hearse is pretty funny. When they imported him into IDW, they based him on Trailbreaker's IDW design and changed his alt mode to a generic APC with guns on top. Not only is that a less interesting alt mode to begin with, but more importantly IMO it completely misses the macabre charm of the original character.
    I didn't know about that, this actually does give me a tiny bit of hope that they will make him a hearse. Wouldn't be the first time they drew from unofficial art. Apparently this is the sketch:
