This isn't speculation, really its closer to wishful thinking. However, with the success of the Prime Wars and the War for Cybertron trilogy the Generations line has grown and grown, going from something a bit more hodge podge in the older days to a fairly important 'main' line which tries to aim for both mainstream toyline and a collector toyline at the same time. This got me thinking about 'what if' toylines, with the caveat that it has to respect the general design, purpose, 'play pattern' and releases of recent toylines. Consider these some thought experiments which people are free to join in for shit and/or giggles. TRANSFORMERS ODYSSEY TRILOGY Named after the 'Galactic Odyssey' box, this one is an idea for where the WFC sequel trilogy could go if they wanted to do more than just G1 rehash while also allowing for G1 rehash just fine. People have long speculated about a line which would touch upon Rid2001 and the Unicron Trilogy and this is that kind of line. Key points and ideas for the line: Its a Generations line, continuing off where Kingdom will leave off. It would retain the same 5mm ports and effects plugs of the WFC trilogy and remain in the same scale range. The line is a trilogy, with a semi-rotating set of figures from different planets of the Transformers universe, with a figure's associated planet being part of their package art, decoration and color schemes. This makes it a loose spiritual successor to the Galaxy Force/Cybertron toyline but it extend beyond it. Some planets/themes are there across the whole trilogy while others only there for an installment. ODYSSEY PART ONE This line would continue off Kingdom and, as such, many of its ideas would remain. The Core Class continues here as does the animal theme, however the animal theme is associated with Animatron/Eukaris/Jungle Planet (pick the name you want), thus combining the G1 mechanical animals, Transmetals and Galaxt Force Animatron designs as one. According to Hasbro, they want to get rid of Titan Class and do two Commanders so this would be where this one goes. The planets are Earth (no gimmick in particular), Jungle Planet (mechanimals theme, sometimes with an extra mode) and Cybertron/Space (Scifi and space theme, very late G1 and Japanese G1 focused but also include the Velocitron space racer car theme). CORE CLASS Scattorshot: The Cybertron Autobot, not the combiner torso. Goldbug Bumblebee: A new Bumblebee mold that is very clearly inspired by his Goldbug form but labelled as 'Bumblebee' for trademark and brand recognition. Optimus Prime and Megatron: Reissues of the Kingdom version, maybe with a deco change on one of them? Gotta keep those trademarks. Shockwave: Another classic character joining the Core class. Venom: The Deluxe Insecticon, possibly given a different name due to trademarks. DELUXE CLASS Pointblank: The targetmaster minus a partner (for now?), completing the Autobot Targetmasters. Sureshot: Same thing. Blurr (Armada): A retool of Pointblank into the Armada version of Blurr or maybe the Cybertron version if they feel less adventurous. Ruckus: A retool/reshell of Pointblank into a more Earth-like buggy and into the Triggercon. Cinderdaur/Flamefeather/Sparkstalker: Any one of the three. They are redesigned to have a more dynamic robot and beast mode but otherwise accurate to the G1 figure. Demolishor: A retool/shared engineering of Siege Impactor as the Armada character. Guzzle: A retool of the Demolishor/Impactor tooling. VOYAGER CLASS Rampage: A remake of the Predacon Rampage. The crab one from Beast Wars, I mean. Depthcharge: Completing the duo/rivalry with Rampage and adding another BW cast member from beyond season 1. Jetfire (Trilogy): Any of the three Unicron trilogy design, meaning it could be labelled either an Earth or a Space figure depending on the design. His redeco is either another Jetfire or Galaxy Shuttle. Blitzwing: A remake of the Generation 1 toy, which people who didn't like Titans Return version would no doubt buy. Goes with the Siege Astrotrain. Sandstorm: A remake of the Generation 1 toy. LEADER CLASS Megatron (Armada): A remake of the Armada toy, moose antlers and all. Gets a redeco as Armada Galvatron. Sold under the space branding thanks to the scifi tank design. Optimus Prime (Laser Rod): The G2 Optimus Prime design with trailer. Scourge/Nemesis Prime is his obvious redeco. Gigatron: The 2001 RID Megatron, here renamed to 'Gigatron' for trademark purposes and not being labelled as Megatron. Devil Gigatron/Galvatron is his SELECTS redeco. COMMANDER CLASS Burning Justice Optimus Prime: Okay, the name is a bit of an old meme but the idea is that it is based off the 2001 RID Optimus Prime, with the fire truck mode and the super mode. Tidal Wave: The big guy from Armada. AND THE REST... Obviously there's more a to a whole trilogy, so here are a few ideas. The choice of characters and mold will make more sense if I explain the retools which would happen after the first toyline. These include the return of the Micromaster Class. The other planets introduced are: A rework of the concept of the Giant Planet, with a theme on heavy duty construction vehicle with blocky scifi trappings and additional 5mm ports and adapters. These enable them to better interact with Micromasters and Weaponizer/Modulators/Fossilzer/whatever replace those. The Micro Planet which is all about Micromasters and Mini-Cons. CORE CLASS Barrage/Chop Shop/Ransack: The rest of the Deluxe Insecticons. DELUXE CLASS Landfill: The Autobot targetmaster bring with him a very unique dump truck mode which will see use soon. Heavy Load: A reshell of Landfill as the RID Autobot given a more heavy duty and reinforced tooling to make him more distinct. Landmine: The Cybertron/Energon character and bulldozer. Wedge: The RID Autobot and bulldozer, retooled from Landmine and given a more heavy duty and alien look. Quake: A retool of Guzzle. Fizzle: A retool of Ruckus. Sizzle: Retooled from a suitable car bot deluxe. Crankcase: A new deluxe van mold. Ironfist: A retool of Crankcase. Red Alert (Armada): Another retool of the Crankcase mold. Getaway: A retool of Sureshot. Slapdash: A retool of Siege Mirage. Joyride: A retool of Ruckus. Backstreet: A deluxe which turns into something inspired by a Le Mans racer. Deluge and Tailspin: Recolors or retools of Backstreet. Override: Not the fembot-thanks-to-the-dub but rather the Triggerbot. Sideways: An intensive retool of Override with Titan Masters compatibility. Nightbeat/Minerva/Siren: Two new deluxe molds which use Titan Master engineering. Fangry/Squeezeplay/Horri-Bull: Three new deluxe molds which use Titan Master engineering. Cinderdaur/Flamefeather/Sparkstalker: Any one of the remaining two. Last one is a SELECT or some bullshit exclusive to piss people off. VOYAGER CLASS Blaster: Use the same casette setup as Siege Soundwave and is labelled as a Micro Planet figure due to its sizre shifting alt mode and micromaster interaction. Hosehead: The Autobot headmaster and the only Voyager Titan Master figure. Darkwing and Dreadwind: Remakes of the G1 toys which would potentially share engineering with Jetfire, depending which version that was. Dogfight: A retool of Darkwing. Needlenose: A second retool of Darking. Noisemaze: The 'second form' of Sideways as an extensive retool of Dreadwind, completely reshelling the alt mode. Soundwave (Planet X): A Cybertron-inspired version of Soundwave which can also use the micromasters. LEADER CLASS Deathsaurus: While a beast planet figure, he has interaction with Micromasters via his Breastforce. And that's all I got so far but I think the idea is fleshed out enough to get the concept across. There's room for more Beast Wars or even Pretenders stuff under the Jungle planet label, Modulators and Minicons under the Giant Planet and Micro Planet and so on and so forth. More Micromaster-base-as-robots like Iron Works would go well under the Giant planet banner too.
