    Well, we got Barricade from it at least! :) 

    Despite myself, this is also making me want Earth-mode redos of Hound, Mirage, and Sideswipe.

    Collecting is a sickness.....

    And Crosshairs wasn't really a van either. They can stretch it if they want to have a non-Siege character that can be repurposed into Ironhide and Ratchet.

    >Earth-mode redos of Hound, Mirage and Sideswipe

    No offense here but maybe two out of the three are kinda funny enough already Earthy. Mirage needs a better figure though.

    If the Elite Hunters set is also two Deluxes. I could see this being where we get Runabout.

    Prowl feels like a suckerpunch. I never loved the body proportions on the Siege figure but picked it up regardless. Now the ER mold looks to be everything I wanted in the first place ://///

    At least Siege Ironhide has a very alien-looking alt mode to justify making an Earth version (albeit a bland, boring alien mode that I would have passed on if I knew an Earth version was coming :rolleyes: ).

    Oh, I know.... that's why I acknowledge that this is an insane desire.

    Like, honestly you could make them both "Earth mode" with minimal retooling. Not even enough to make it worthwhile.

    And yet... I sort of want it.

    The Earth Prime was a major improvement, Smokescreen look to be a major improvement so I expect Prowl to be the same, but I can't imagine an Earth mode Ultra Magnus that is better than the Siege mold enough so to warrant me buying it

    I’m really torn since I do like what we got in Siege but at the same time I’m annoyed I wasted $$$$ on it. I’m certainly not speaking for everyone but I’m sure I’m not the only one who would rather have had these great Earthrise updates to begin with rather than the half assed “Cybertronian” alt modes. Such is the life of collecting I suppose.

    All that being said, I’m in for earth mode Prowl and Ironhide, and bring on earth modes of the rest of Siege. Earthrise has give me definitive Classics versions of plenty characters already so I’ll never have to buy another update of them again!

    Maybe it'll be a RID Magnus to go with the rumored RID Optimus Prime? That's a long shot, but it'd be dope.

    This better not be a trilogy of all the same characters just redone over in different aesthetics.

    Prowl was my 2nd Transformer ever so I have a lot of nostalgia for him. Up to this point, 2005 Botcon Ironhide has been my default CHUG Ironhide. But I'd be happy to get a good Sunbow/Marvel looking Ironhide and the obligatory Ratchet repaint.

    Universe Hound isn't too bad. I mean, Hasbro could do better. But if not, I'd be content displaying Universe Hound among these new '84 and '85 Autobot cars.

    Maybe the extra steps are from him having a battle station that separates from him. He could have the G1 looking battle station but then have a robot mode that looks Sunbow/Marvel. Sort of like Energon Towline and the 2005 Botcon Ironhide/Ratchet. That could be the best of both worlds, mixing G1 toy and Sunbow designs.
