    I couldn't find a thread like this when searching so I thought I'd make this:

    What do you expect to be the new subline when PW is all said & done?

    My guess would be something akin to Beast Wars since we've just gone through a good chunk of G1 & BW was immediately afterwards. Plus there have little droplets like the IDW books, MP Primal & Cheetor & the CW Predacus set that give me a stronger belief that the beasts are coming.

    I haven't followed the franchise long enough to have a firmer grasp of what HasTak are up to, so I'll ask you guys & gals; what's next?

    I'm assuming that they're just go back to what they did before Prime Wars and just make random remakes with assorted gimmicks and features.

    I think we'll see something that brings us classics versions of some of the new characters introduced in Animated, Prime and RID - Bulkhead, Strongarm, Knockout, Bisk, etc. - mixed in with Seekers, some '84 cars, and of course, OP and Megs

    There will always be a theme now. It seems to be doing quite well in terms of cross selling.

    I hope they return to what Thrilling 30 did before they switched to Combiner Wars. Give us updates to not just G1 but G2, BW, BM, RID01, & Armada... Heck why not throw in some Universe 2003 & Energon too?

    I'm still just trying to figure out what the Power of the Primes gimmick is going to be.

    IT might depend on how extensive the Generations roster will be over the next two to three years. We're beginning to make a dent into Targetmasters so at 12-16 Deluxes a year and almost as many larger Characters and One offs there may not be that many viable G1 candidates left. So.....Beyond G1 for sure.

    GoTMasters Wars.
    Basically cool figures which come with DRAGONS.
    The Titan Class toy turns into a giant snowy wall.

    I fore see them continuing the Generations line .... plenty of bots that will need some kind of recognition .... I have a feeling at some point Has/Tak will give us a smaller DEVY , or even a PROWLASTATOR . I`m not speaking of what I want to see , but going off what they have given us thus far . the GENERATIONS line will roll in bank for has/tak as long as they keep it up . , all so Hasbro announced that us older fans will be getting nods / figures to appease us all :)  At some point BW`s will have to rear it` head eventually .... most consider BW / BM to be a part of G1 ( minus the few who choose to disown BM ) .... I personally look 4ward to the future of our beloved TRANSFORMERS ! TRANSFORMERS is my lover , lol .

    I think they'll just do what they did before Combiner Wars. Random characters from assorted story lines.

    Hm, I never really did think of whether or not HasTak would keep the gimmicks going. Although they've had some tricks up their sleeve prior to the PW like Cyber Keys & Power Core Combiners, so it's nothing new to the line. I would guess they'd wanna stay on the good track PW has gotten them on.

    Do you think they would use a more obscure gimmick from the past in the next subline or make up a brand new one?

    The 3rd PW Line ? I'm tempted to think it will be a powermasters sort of thing.

    That, and whatever you think will come after PW ends.

    Oh for that, I have absolutely no idea. Which makes thing better.
    So I decided it will be bots who turn into GoT characters.
    Wave 1 is all Lannisters:
    - Legend: Tyrion
    - Deluxe: Lancel (Takara version repaint him as useful)
    - Voyager: Cersei/Jaime
    - Leader: Tywin (Toilet include with Takara version)
    - Mini Scout Class: Sir Pounce
    - Breakaway hate Class: Joffrey
    - SDDC Exclusive: Podrick. Mold used for Hotpie in Wave 3

    As long as they keep making great updates like hasbro has been doing, don't really care what the next thing they do after prime wars is. Just keep making good figures. :cool:

    The current head designer has gone on record as saying he doesn't like beast wars, and his g1 fandom is buried in the post 86 lineups. So assuming he sticks around for a while, we won't be seeing much from the maximals and predacons.

    Assuming we don't see micromaster, pretenders, or actionmasters in Power of the Primes, I could see those getting some love.
    Allthough personally i'd like another line like Thrilling 30, wherin we got homages from all eras.

    Or maybe they'll go completly crackerjacks on us and do another trio based on the Takara Trilogy of Masterforce, Victory, and Zone

    I'd like to go back to something Thrilling 30-ish, with some more gimmick mix up taking from Prime Wars.
    Lets get Beast Wars, Unicron Trilogy, IDW, G1 still outnumbering all of them but with combiner limbs, headmasters, triple/six changers, mini cons, targetmasters and whatever Power has in store for us. A decent Ratchet/Ironhide mold would be nice too.

    I hope we get back to the combiner wars way of doing things:
    No more t30 randomness.
    Updates of G1 toys who havent been updated yet together with updates of the characters they where a team with in G1.
    Preferably Pretender, Beastcombiners or the other post 86 G1 and G2 toys.
