    I whole heartedly agree. Off the top of my head Id say the Studio Series could include some new molds for a bunch of characters from RotF that could use some decent figures. Hell I'd say they could even make some new Constructicons that have three modes, vehicle, robot and combined limbs. With all the new engineering in CW and PotP if they could make a new Devastator in the Movie verse scale with voyagers that combine, that would be hella awesome.

    I also wouldn't mind them giving us a voyager version of Soundwave in his satellite form to better accommodate and stabilize his janky feet/leg issues. Make a Leader class Fallen, Jetfire, repaint Blackout to be Grindor, give us some new Bike Sisters. I've been largely opposed to the Movie stuff of late due to the stupid increase in prices making them ludicrous, but while Hasbro Canada continues to pump out coupons for TRU and they include decent sales allowing me to replace the older figures with a better looking bunch of dudes, Revenge of the Fallen was a great toyline, but a lot of the characters only had the one shot and were never seen again. It's high time we got some actual love for them in this new series. Yes even Mudflap and Skids if they have to.

    I wouldn't say no to a 07 Transforming Dispensor, X-Box and Steering Wheel in a box with the Allspark Cube either.

    We really need at least one of the SS figures to carry the Allspark and another to carry the Matrix.

    Jeezus. What a difference a competent paint job makes. Prime is downright fantastic. If it looked like that I would consider getting it.

    As far as characters that I'd like to see in SS? The Wreckers and the Arcee triplets immediately come to mind. I'd also like to see a Fallen.

    I'm pretty sure it was someone here on the boards that ended up buying it, actually.

    We kind of got a Dispensor in the Takara Movie Advanced line, but he transforms into a truck instead of a soda machine.

    True, I want a vending machine official product. We got the fucking toaster, a microscope (that could use an update for better legs) and I'm sure they could make a vending machine and sell it. The rest of the kitchen-bots would be a fun idea too. But I digress.

    I definitely don't mind it. I tracked down the Premium version about a year ago. My only complaint is that he doesn't have a ball-jointed neck. I'd like for him to be able to turn his head.

    Anyone got any guesses on who the 3 SS leader classes in 2019 are gonna be?

    The only one's I can see as big enough to be a leader class are Jetfire, The Fallen, Grindor, Slug, Scorn and Devcon.

    I want to put Infernocus on there, but I doubt they'll make a combiner for this line

    Grindor makes sense as an easy repaint, but they may hold off on those for exclusives or something. Jetfire and The Fallen would be nice, as far as a third is concerned why would you say Devcon? Who the heck is Devcon? I'm not sure who the third would be. Maybe a new Shockwave?

    Devcon is another who I don't expect to get one at all. He shows up for almost literally 20 seconds in Dark of the Moon. He's a quadroped decepticon who turns into a russian missile truck.

    And I think if Shockwave got an SS it would probably be a voyager, according to the chart he's the same height as Megs, and he doesn't have the massive kibble to justify a leader like Blackout does.

    (Just look up "AOE scale chart" and you'll see everything)

    I’d definitely love a big, meaty and tall voyager Shockwave.

    leader Slog would be awesome. most likely it would be Scorn since all Hasbro would need t do is make hi bigger and fix the arm.

    In a perfect world 'Leader' Shockwave would consist of Voyager Shockwave in size with an extra Driller Worm Dealie accessory to pad the plastic in the package and give us another 'as of yet' released character from the Dark of the Moon film.
