    The DJD would actually fit pretty well in WfC.

    Tarn is a typical transformer, but a guy like Vos could be a Battlemaster and Kaon could be could be a Weaponizer. Tesaurus would actually be a pretty solid Voyager with the ability to be a "base" similar to the Judge figure.

    So much potential, they'd better do it.

    Sadly

    Could Hasbro make new Transformers series like RID 2015?

    But that's more akin to the Prime Wars series.
    Sure, the WFC episodes are 20 minutes as oppose the Prime Wars 8 minutes, but we're still getting a small number in regards to episode count.

    Exactly, that's why I was asking if there was news of new projects, Transformers always have a presence in cartoon form to sell toys so the dark Netflix series doesn't seem the one to replace Cyberverse.

    I haven’t been super into Cyberverse, but just once I’d like a TF show to last longer than 3 seasons. And maybe go the whole way without rebranding the show 2 or 3 times too.

    I think that's just the nature of toy advertisement media.

    The problem is sort of that the shows are explicitly made to be vehicles for fiction to back up toy sales. That means you need to be able to rotate characters in and out, update designs drastically, swap in new gimmicks and swap them out when they get old, and generally keep the pace fast and fluid. Plus, you need to make sure it's fresh over and over again, and minor iterations on designs makes that difficult. So, a reboot can be a quick way to get new looks, new excitement, and new product.

    These shows aren't where the longterm story building chops of the brand is these days. So they're easy to swap out and replace as needed. I think Hasbro kind of got gun shy on the idea of making something with staying power during Prime; that whole Aligned continuity thing collapsed, and they didn't want to put in the money to try it again right now. Frankly, I can't entirely blame them.

    Hasbro has long since ditched the single continuity stuff, and opted for simply visual unification (probably why evergreen is used for Rescue Bots Academy and Cyberverse, despite separate canons). While I like Cyberverse, I understand why it needed to end. Frankly it doesn't do a good job at advertising the toy gimmicks (which is good from a story standpoint).

    Dont know who youre referring to as Decepticon girl but the other 3 are getting close enough deluxe figures i think, hammerbyte is definitely getting a warrior and the other too are 5 inch light up figures (i think 5 inch are the deluxe scale)

    I'm surprised that people didn't see this coming.
    I predicted it (on a different site) when it was announced that Hasbro had just spent billions on the production company Entertainment One, that it would mean the sudden axing of their current cartoons after the current season... because it would be stupid for them to be paying for two companies to produce their cartoons... and it would be really stupid if they didn't have their new expensive purchase producing cartoons as soon as possible.
    The same thing happened with their HUB channel - they had to kill off Animated so that they could have a brand new Transformers cartoon for the launch of the channel, which gave us the TFPrime series.
    And if there isn't a cartoon to advertise the toys, there won't be more toys coming either (like with Animated, which saw a lot of toy concepts not being produced by Hasbro, or at all).

    Is that the actual Tarn or one of Megatron’s perfect Decepticon warriors?

    Yeah I really want a deluxe figure of her too. The biggest travesty of Cyberverse will be if the season 3 deluxe line ends without her in one of the waves.
