    Of the listings I'm definitely most excited for starscream, second would be dragon Megatron which I'm kinda nervous about because I feel like they'll cut a lot of corners to make him a leader

    I just hope he's not too small when scaled with POTP Optimal Optimus.

    Eh, better be selling that version. For its time it was... fine? Even that is saying it kindly because it was honestly just acceptable because it was the only Generations BW-related stuff that we got in years. Wouldn't be surprised if we get a new better executed Optimal Optimus (Hopefully a Commander Class) and it wouldn't be too hard to do considering it would lack the worthless evolution gimmick.

    Eh, not selling this one so easily, especially with the upgrade kits. Believe it or not, some people did like this thing, horribly gimmick and everything. Hell, as my username indicate I am such a sucker for the design that the Optimal Optimus design is one of those where I broke my 'one figure of each character' rule, having the Throne of the Primes. If push come to shove and we do get an upgrade eeeeh its fine I'll just repaint him into Primal Prime and Apelinq. Or maybe custom it into the Beast Machines 'Optimal Megatron'. I'll figure something out but selling that figure+its upgrade kit at a loss isn't exactly something I would do easily. Personally I don't think we will see, say, a Leader-class (or even Commander class!) Optimal Optimus and its more likely that Dragon Megatron is either BW Megatron getting his upgraded form to match the pre-existing Primal OR its actually RiD Megatron/Gigatron with hopefully a BW Megatron retool for SELECTS.

    Once again, I could be wrong. But hey, what can I say? I'm probably the only person who liked POTP Optimus Primal.

    They will be two. One will be a voyager(smol like Hot Rod) and then the Core class.

    BB ratchet was already a win, and now the core class vanette is just the cherry on top, especially after I started thinking I could use a legends-class size medic in my TF shelf.

    One thing I'd hope to see, if they go deep into Armada is Overload.

    So we can get his retool, Sentinel Maximus. Because that is another deep cut of post-Beast era Botcon nonsense.

    And hey, he's also a Wrecker so that gotta count for something right?

    Looking at his shoulder cannon mode makes me think he'd be a perfect voyager weaponizer figure.

    I know, right?! Imagine being able to weaponize anyone with a modern Overload or Wing Saber or similar power mushrooms?

    I'm split between the warring factions
    I would like a shot at the first edition- maybe with ankle pivot. However at the same time I love braves and gundams; the wfc line
    (mainly seige) gave me a g1 based robot line I could enjoy.

    Also imagine we get the trifecta of Commander Armada Prime, Leader Jetfire & Voyager Overload, all compatible with each other.

    I see, because I find that strange.

    Isn't Legacy the next chapter after WFC trilogy? I would assume they are streamlined in continuity. But whatever he's in, I will get him regardless (depending how he looks). Really need to get the Insecticons in my collection.

    As adorable as core soundwave is. I honestly would have preferred a baby tm megan. Especially so us hardcore beast wars fans could have the infamous shot.
