    Given we've had Overlord recently, plus Hasbro themselves threw Dearhsaurus into the mix, so I'd say the Japanese BW leaders are in with a good chance.

    We're still pretending that figure is meant to be Deathsaurus?
    It isn't. It's more a fusion of Leozack and Jaguar with Deathsaurus' dragon head.

    I honestly can’t imagine them NOT doing Lioconvoy.

    He’s had as much or more love from Hasbro over the past 15-20 years than the main BW cast.

    I can imagine some obscure characters for exclusives. Apelinq, stiletto, overshoot, black lio Convoy, galva convoy are characters that come to mind

    Are the BotCon character trademarks owned by Hasbro? If not, they're all out.

    I think they might be owned by fun publications

    This is why Hasbro (and TT with regards to Masterpiece) may need to get creative with redeco ideas. Though having said that, Siege is very light on in terms of redecos/retools, especially when compared to the Prime Wars Trilogy. Everyone is seemingly getting their own new mold. This bodes well going forward.

    They could still just call it something else, look at Rodimus Unicronus and MP Shattered Glass Prime.

    FunPub doesn't own anything in regard to character names or designs. They wouldn't own Primal Prime in any case, as that concept predates their involvement in the franchise.

    So, who does own the trademarks for the BotCon characters?

    Potential Deluxe Blackarachnia and Tarantulas figures could lend themselves nicely to the in-class height difference that Siege has been giving. Tarantulas, with his larger abdomen, allows for larger robot legs. Blackarachnia, with her smaller abdomen, for smaller robot legs.

    With Commander Class being a thing it does make not only the chances of accurately scaled figures for both Optimal Optimus and Transmetal 2 Megatron being made greatly, but it can also give us box sets for both Magnaboss and Tripredacus in the vien of CW Devastator and POTP Predaking. Each set containing their respective members and updating the combiner gimmick so they won't look so awkward this time. Not to mention we could get a BW II Tripledacus repaint of Tripredacus from Takara's Select Series too.

    I'm looking forward to Masterpiece Rattrap and Rampage the most.

    How would Hasbro handle updates of Magnaboss and Tripredacus? Three-member teams with unique tooling to match the originals? Or add two members to each team and do standardized Combiner Wars pegs?

    1 Titan-class Boxset. 6 individual Voyaqger-sized figures.

    Just like CW Devastator.

    ...i like the way you think!..

    ...unfortunately, i'm skeptical that modern hasbro/takara would give us combiners worthy of the originals' engineering...

    I hope so. Besides the ones you named, I love some of the animal and dinosaur modes from some of the Japan only characters, especially "Neo". I'd love to have a updated Break since I like penguins in general. (Hopefully with a lot less shellforming in engineering)
