    There are still plenty of characters coming out: we have Evasion Optimus Prime, DOTM Bee, Que, Hatchet, Sideways, The Fallen, Hound, Crosshairs, the Protoform troops.
    From the looks of it, it seems like 2023 will be the year SS will go back in full to Bayverse, it's just that for the moment they needed to make time by finishing off the Bumblebee cast, having figures from the 86 movie, and make room for the upcoming movie.
    They could probably save them until 2024, y'know Age Of Extinction's 10th anniversary, just like how in 2019 they released Jetfire, Optimus and the first batch of Constructicons to conmemorate ROTF's 10th anniversary. But hopefully one or two are released in 2023

    Is it possible the Road Ranger and Puffer two pack a Battle Across Time pack and they make one a Maximal with a vehicle mode and not a beast mode?

    don't see WHY? I don't think you even have to worry about that being the case.

    I don't have a need to get AOE Grimlock again at a larger size [there's also a million KOs if you want that], but I could totally understand them making Scorn at commander. He was larger, iirc (and not just because of the "fins". Likewise, I could see a G1 Sludge at commander, possibly packed with weapons or a smaller partner to fully fill out that price.

    I think there's only the two Battle Across Time sets, which is consistent with the Siege and Earthrise Amazon packs.

    Do you guys think Waspinator could end being the Seeker of Kingdom, do you guys think there will be a lot of repaints of Waspinator?

    Lonewolf, the guy who primarily leaks Studio Series information, said some time ago that Hasbro is considering bringing Commander Class to SS and that the Fallen, Scorn and Stratosphere are the main contenders.

    I find it interesting that Stratusphere is a contender he looks like an Armada figure....

    Well, judging by ROTF Soundwave, they're not afraid to deviate from robot designs that didn't appear onscreen. I honestly doubt a Siege-Jetfire-sized version of that design would even stand properly, so it'd almost certainly be heavily altered or completely replaced. Frankly, I just wanna see a giant Autobot plane and don't care what his robot mode looks like. Heck, the design's only appearance in fiction altered the proportions. Though, if that's what a hypothetical Commander Stratosphere is based on, I'd really want them to make it actually match the Bayverse aesthetic.

    I also hope he comes with all the Stealth Force guns he had in the DOTM game (where he never transformed to robot form) as it's the one piece of media I'm familiar with that the character was in and just because it looks bad ass.

    I'm hoping Hasbro are happy with wfc enough that they can consider these versions fairly definative, outside of Netflix's/selects variations. That way we can expand a bit into other generations and maybe even rarer figures.

    Though that said if they brought out a Sideswipe in two years with perfect vehicle mode and rubber types....I'll end up buying it.

    While I know the UT and TFA folks are like #firstworldproblems, I agree with this. Until I put together a new bookcase this summer, everything non MP and non WFC is pretty much boxed right now. So however much $ was spent it'll be wasted until then just like every time HasTak changes designers or aesthetics.
    Again, I know I'm whining compared to TFA and UT folks, and I apologize for it. I'm just happy it seems that Hasbro intends to stay consistent long enough for me to finish up. Hopefully, everyone else starts feasting in the next few years.
    Also, I know I'll buy another Sideswipe in a couple of years so you know, stupid me. :)

    Hell if we know, but oh boy.
    Also, SS commander boxes are ever so slightly larger than WFC commander boxes.

    Wait, they've got boxes designed? Does that mean we're getting a SS Commander sooner, rather than later?
