    i know they would have to, i though it was implicit the idea that hasbro could base some of devcon's transformation scheme on other figures but ok let me spell it for you

    hasbro could make a leader class devcon inspired on older figures that more or less can already be made into an approximation of his robot mode and turn into some kind of long truck, for example rotf 09 mixmaster, but using an entirely new mold designed exclusively for devcon, and it wouldn't require as many pieces as some might suggest

    I'm not sure you understand how tooling and budgets work.

    Because what you just suggested requires all new pieces.

    anyway it wouldn't matter either way given how they seem to not want to make bayformers anymore
    but i do understand enough, i wouldn't say i have professional knowledge(although i have designed mini transformers before) i do know this, if even a fan mode with a figure not designed to represent it can be made int a pretty close approximation, i don't think is impossible for a designer to make one from scratch that isnt that complex, but then again, whether or not it would fit hasbro's budget, is one thing, still think they would fit it into an smaller "leader", but i dont know why would i explain all the intricacies of figure design to people that clearly don't understand them

    Do you [1]guys want an [2]unfathomably cool leader class figure? Consoom when the time is right. I expect a listing in a year for [3][4]The One who guides us on that [5]Path.

    1 - Guys. Plural. Multiple figures.
    2 - Fathom relates to the Sea.
    3 - The One, from the Matrix. Neo.
    4 - Also relates to a deity, in the Sky.
    5 - Relates to the Land.

    OMG!

    Leader Class Beast Wars Neo Magmatron Confirmed!

    There's a lot of speculation in this thread that may be more suited to their own thread.

    But there's a lot of shit in this thread that has nothing to do with actual foretelling from the leakers, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Sorry was watching Cruella. Not bad, honestly, solid 7 out of 10. No to all of those characters.
    *sigh*
    @CactusReporter
    Please understand the budget.
    Ah, good, right back on schedule.

    Grindor says hi. Also they've released Dino and we already know Jolt and Sideswipe are coming.

    It's less about not wanting to make more and more they're running out of guys to make.

    Did you write this part while looking in a mirror?

    The movie was pleasantly better than I expected. The aesthetics and play with music kept me entertained.

    All this talk about Dino makes me want a red redeco of Kingdom Mirage. If I want in on all this speculation, might as well go full cursed.

    I really enjoyed the actors in the film. Kinda weird making Cruella a sympathetic character and it doesn't really connect well with the classic story IMO. Awesome track list but they could have let the music breathe a bit. It was like they dropped on needle right on top of another. Almost nothing happens in the film without a classic rock backdrop.

    There's a Shockwave with Worm coming isn't there.

    Humph I think the only bay designs I like are Shockwave...Lockdown... and Longhaul, the rest offend me greatly.

    I'd be down for a few bayformer-homage repaints, Green crosshairs, Silver sideswipe, heck, ROTF deco based UW devastator. Could look pretty good in a lot of cases
