    The more I think about it the more I don't really care about the cassettes being micro sized. I would be perfectly fine with them making core scale cassettes as most people, myself included, would display them in bot mode anyways. And having Core class would allow them to be more accurate than micromaster size ever could.
    And, for me personally, I bought nearly all the KFC cassettes when they came out (just missing the Dino combiner) and along with the other MP scale cassettes they scale really fantastically in Bot mode with Generations as is. Sure, they don't fit into the chests but that's where the ones we do have come in and can display in the chests just fine.

    That's assuming they don't decide to shaft him... Why on earth does Jetfire, the biggest of the SG figures, gets nothing new? The deluxes have new heads and voyagers new accessories.

    Because it's already an $80 figure??? It's not that hard to figure out.

    Okay and? What does that have to do with it. Especially with him still getting the markup the others have. They could have done something.

    One thing I thought of that I'd love to see if each wave is dedicated entirely to a specific part, so W1 would be Armada, W2 Energon and W3 Cybertron, with maybe a W4 that is just a mix of the 3.

    Core Class
    Armada minicon packs
    Energon Arcee, Signal Flare, Divebomb
    Cybertron Recon minicon team, Signal Lancer, scattorshot

    Deluxe
    Armada Hotshot, red alert, Demolishor, Sideways
    Energon Inferno, retool into snowcat, Starscream, Demolishor
    Cybertron Thunderblast, Ransack, Override, Leobreaker

    Voyager
    Armada Scavenger, Cyclonus
    Energon Rodimus, Shockblast
    Cybertron Crumplezone, CD scattorshot

    Leader
    Armada Megatron, Jetfire
    Energon Megatron, Scorponok
    Cybertron Galvatron, Vector Prime

    Commander Armada Prime

    Titan class Tidal Wave

    Gen selects/W4 repaints
    Armada - Cannonball from red alert, Energon Cyclonus, SG Astrotrain, Galvatron
    Energon - Roadblock, Thunderclash, Six Shot, Double Punch, Galvatron
    Cybertron - nemesis leobreaker (to go with galvatron), cybertronian Optimus Primal from Crumplezone, Megatron from Galvatron

    Oh are we talking UT figures? I'm kt a big UT fan, but I have a couple figures I'd really like.

    In a rough order of most to least wanted there's:
    Cannonball, Armada and Cybertron Sideways (though Cybertron Sideways will always be Noisemaze in my mind. I almost listed them seperatly), Thunderblast, armada Megatron, Snowcat, Alpha Quintesson, Cybertron Megatron, Energon Jetfire, and Energon Ironhide. Jetfire and Ironhide are pretty much the only childhood memories I have of TF outside the movies, cause I had them as a kid, so it'd be cool for me if they did new ones.

    The Energon Terrorcons could be cool too. For me that would give the Quintessons even more figures for their shelf. I'd also use Alpha Quintesson as Quintus Prime, and for my collection Quintus was an imposter among the thirteen and secretly a Quintesson in disguise.

    Armada and Cybertron Megatron would also be given new names for my collection. Cybertron Megatron as Gigatron, and I don't actually have a name for Armada Megatron yet. Maybe Ultratron or something.

    Maybe they could release the normal orange Noisemaze/Sideways as "Sideways" and that army builder repaint in gem selects as "Noisemaze".

    While it would be neat to get a mix of random UT characters, I'm sure Hasbro is inspired by Kingdom's success. When Armada happens, it'll be the entirety of Armada. Energon and Cybertron might be just the highlights but I'm hopeful they'll get the same treatment as well.

    That's what I'm hoping for. I have the most attachment to the original Armada characters and my enjoyment of the cast steadily decreased as the trilogy progressed. The funny thing is that I enjoyed the trilogy less as the figures improved. The jankey-ier the figure, the more likely I was going to like the character.

    Though, imagine if there were Weaponizers based upon the Spark Armor Drones. It would have been cool and would have had a lot of potential.

    He's already got 2 faces and a boatload of accessories

    The markup is because of the comic

    So now I guess the only wildcards currently known about for kingdom are the ratchet, barricade and ER nemesis that got mentioned with the wave 4 art. Wonder where those will pop up

    well we know that nemesis is in the cartoon, as well as barry and ratchet. though they could also be planning to reissue those figures for the mainline, as they appear in the cartoon, so maybe we could be getting those 3 in wave 4 to pad the wave.

    It was when hasbro revealed the side art for wave 4 on their site. Nemesis specifically mentioned the ER mold accessories so I think that at least will show up as a repaint soon
