    Perhaps a re-release of Siege Jetfire in comic deco like the Shockwave and Grimlock is possible?

    I'd be very interested to see what a Void Rivals toyline would look like and how it'd sell. There's no apparent gimmick to appeal to kids, so it'd be 100% marketed to adult fans, but without any nostalgia component.

    Interesting! Seems more likely to be a con exclusive or something?  Abbé retools of something from classified, or in that style?

    Is void rivals the new comic series from Skybound? I haven't been keeping up with that. If so, I'd take a guess that they could show up in Legacy Y4 or whatever comes after 2024.

    Awesome to hear about Skybound toys potentially being a thing! I'm not too familiar with Void Rivals (though want to check it out) but I do hope this leads to toys of Fusion Cannon Optimus and
    Lambo Arcee

    So I’m assuming a toyline of this would have figures of the aliens who appear in that comic. Maybe some TFs thrown in? I’m not really sure what would be done here. Need more info to form a full opinion on this.

    Oh neat, I hope if they eventually make original comic characters they start appearing here.

    This will probably be the way we get fusion cannon prime

    I see Void Rivals toys as being a SDCC two pack or something…

    Make a whole EU line how about it? Give us Darak, Solila, quintessons, Skuxiod, Fusion cannon Prime, Lamborghini Arcee, scruffy Duke, and maybe some Cobra La stuff while we are at it.

    HELL YEAH I LOVE THE SACRED RING ALIENS. Give me actual alien action figures, Skuxxoid, Quintessons (an opportunity to do the scientists, Prosecutors, and other quintessons that don’t have normal figures). Would be cool if it evolved into an entire marvel legends style subline of all the aliens in the transformers universe

    I'll be upfront and say that I don't think Kirkman is a good writer. Was glad that it was announced someone else would be writing Transformers. So far, Void Rivals hasn't changed my opinion.

    That said, the man knows how to generate hype and he's living the dream, well done to him and his team.

    I do think this is an interesting development though, Skybound doesn't just do comics. They do other media and they publish board games. So either this was something agreed to earlier, or there might be some kind of partnership/merger in the future?

    Or I could just be reading into it too much.

    I just want some in-scale slug figures of Void Rivals characters to go with my tfs. However, I would not say no to Joe Classified-style figures.
