    I know art isn’t always accurate to the physical product, but the (admittedly very poor) peak at what Barricade looks like in the Siege video seems to give him a spikier head than what Prowl has.

    I forgot a character that should get a Titan Class figure before Unicron & Primus.

    Anyone an be a villain given the right perspective. Historical and modern politics demonstrate that.Any resistance army and counter-resistance army could be villains. Or heroes.
    Technically, Action Master partners have become Battlemasters as well.

    So it's possible the Action Masters themselves are going to be in the next part of the WFC Trilogy then. But I would like Action Masters of these 3 characters.

    Given that Warden apparently recognizes that fans in general dislike Transformers that don't transform(that's the main reason that their partners are being remade), I wouldn't count on that """"gimmick"""" to be present in the main line any time soon. Plus, the whole main (IRL) reason for the line was to get standard articulation for the Transformers characters. We have that standard without sacrificing their transformations now, so no reason they can't have alt modes.

    If those characters get made again, chances are they'll have alt modes. Heck, two out of the three already have figures with alt modes. Not Hasbro, but still official figures.

    Hopefully, the Action Master-original characters will get new figures though. I really enjoyed Krok's Titan's Return figure.

    I didn't mean to make it sound like they would all be Action Masters only a few of them, not the whole series,

    Like I said, I wouldn't count on it. I mean, considering that we're getting cityformer drones and have gotten obscure Headmasters remade in TR, any character in the entirety of the Transformers history is probably on the table right now for Generations, including those particular characters. I just doubt they'll ever touch such an unpopular gimmick like that in order to realize them. That's all I'm saying.

    I'm not a fan of "everyone has cybertronian mode", I would have preferred they design some character with Earth modes, and some Cybertronian (Megs, the 'Waves, Chromia, Weaponizers,Reflector). The Seeker mold would have been much better off for it. But this is as good as it gets for the time being, I suppose.

    If Hasbro did bring back Action Masters they should be the same size as Star Wars Black Series, Marvel Legends, and the upcoming Power Rangers Lightning Collection, which would give them their own size class in Transformers.

    Metro has the 5mm ports on him, yes. Problem is though, a lot of them are located in raised molded plastic. Plus, his hands (both factory and 3rd party upgrades) DON'T have the ports, so he won't be able to hold Sixgun's legs as blasters.

    The more I look at Prowl the more his bot mode annoys me.
    Compared to his MP proportions, which I think are the best Ive seen, this versions chest is too wide which makes his shoulders stick out like crazy and his legs seen too short and he's also very thin in the thigh area.
    Hopefully its just a bit of warping due to the angle they chose to pose him in and he'll look less stumpy in person.
