    That would be an ff-ing shame because a high percentage of the 1987/88/89 designs were freaking amazing. Those were the years when intricate sculpt detail returned to actual Transformers toys.

    And since Siege is heavy on sculpt detail, logic would dictate....

    I see the WFC trilogy as being the ultimate love letter to G1. We'll see a lot of characters getting figures that might not get updates for another 15 or so years (Skytread, Runamuck, Spinster), and I think we'll see an almost complete updating of G1 toys. I really feel that they are trying to go all out, & give an "ending", so to speak. After that, I think Beast Wars fans will have their time, maybe a year or two for updates. As far as what might come after that, I see a new reimagining, something akin to BW & the Unicron trilogy.

    So, since we're doing a lot of speculation, what's everyone's top ten most wanted Autobots and Decepticons that you'd like to see by the time Part 3 ends? My current wish list is...

    Autobots:
    1. Bulkhead (leader class or voyager, but I've got a hunch he may be the leader class figure Catz was hinting at)
    2. Elita-One (small voyager, like Soundwave height)
    3. Hot Rod (medium to large sized deluxe figure)
    4. Jazz (small deluxe about the same height as Prowl)
    5. Hardhead (voyager sized, about the same height as Springer)
    6. Blaster (I'd prefer a new mold around the size of Soundwave, but wouldn't say no to a retool)
    7. Drift (deluxe preferably at whatever height they do Hot Rod at)
    8. Arcee (deluxe again around the same height as Hot Rod)
    9. Bumblebee (very small deluxe most probably with some sort of upgrade accessories)
    10. Star Saber (commander class with a deluxe-ish Saber figure)
    Decepticons:
    1. Blackout (a nice big leader class figure)
    2. Lugnut (leader class)
    3. Demolishor (large deluxe or small voyager)
    4. Tidal Wave (Commander class)
    5. Blitzwing (voyager or, like Astrotrain, a leader with some extra pieces)
    6. Dirge, Ramjet & Thrust (voyager, preferably a new mold that would handle their uniqueness better than I feel the current Seeker mold from Siege would)
    7. Lockdown (large deluxe)
    8. Slipstream (large deluxe or small voyager)
    9. Knock Out (small deluxe)
    10. Thunderblast (small deluxe)

    1. Leader or even better, commander class Deathsaurus.
    2. Ditto Thunderwing
    3. I’d happily take a new Bludgeon.

    Thats about it for me.

    I'm pretty sure nothing about this statement is accurate.
    As a collector born in the '90s who didn't see G1 until he was almost 30 and didn't star collecting until last year, I love all the attention G1 characters are getting, and I love the Siege aesthetic. And I hope it continues for the next two years. Don't like it? Don't buy them. Leaves more for the rest of us.

    That is a great list, I certainly wouldn't refuse a new Elita-1 or Knockout. I would have thought a Cybertronian Bee and Wheeljack would be a given, but I'm surprised we haven't seen anything yet?

    Here is my list based on ones that haven't been heavily rumored yet ... I figure the rest of the Autobot Targetmasters, Runamuck/Runabout, and Snapdragon are a given at this point:

    Autobots:
    1-5: Voyager/Leader Dinobots Titanclass set (non-combiner)
    6: Warpath
    7: Trailbreaker (Voyager or large Deluxe)
    8-10: Omnibots

    Decpticons:
    1. Scorponok
    2. Fangry
    3. Cyclonus
    4. Blitzwing
    5-10. Earthmode Original Seekers (Voyager) and Conehead retools.

    I'll throw a request for a Takara/Selects Raiden set (Combiner Wars scale) since it looks like Selects is seeing more releases each year.

    And it didn't make my 10, but I'd be curious how a WFC Trilogy Tracks, Grapple, Kup, Cliffjumper, or Galvatron would look?

    YES! Many of them can even be repaints/minor retools. Siege Soundblaster woulda made a great Logos Prime as is..and maybe he IS Logos Prime. Kinda hard to fit "Usedta-be-Soundwave" into Siege...

    for some reason something tells me we are gonna get a new arcee within this trilogy and if we do there could be potential for a new elita 1 cause the two somewhat share the same asthetics

    I'd want figures of the characters that either have NO update or an incredibly bad fitting update. Thunderwing is fine, no need to touch him again.

    Autobots:
    Stardrive: deluxe. 2 versions. one in Solstar Knight Silver, one with COMBAT compatible Dire Wraith spiky bits.
    Centurion: deluxe, include hammer and gatling gun.
    Skyhammer: commander class legends class core bot. with a voyager class transforming shell. which can dock inside the larger vehicle shell
    Star Saber: commander class.
    Nautica: deluxe, comic accurate please.
    Autobot X: voyager class Weaponiser.
    Leobreaker/Overhaul: deluxe class Overhaul core figure, Leobreaker armor that beefs him up to leader class. Leobreaker armor can also be attached to Galaxy Upgrade Prime for Savage Claw mode.
    Minerva: deluxe, titanmaster gimmick.
    Rum-Maj: deluxe, comic accurate. include a bonus Wreck Gar noggin
    Blacker: voyager class Combiner wars torso. include a pair of missile pods that use the cw system to become Road Caesar's arms. (redeco CW Breakdown and potp Jazz into Braver and Laster)

    Decepticons:
    Guiltaur: voyager class honestly, you can probably just get away with slapping some new legs on Siege voyager Optimus and giving him a fucktillion extra guns.
    Deathsaurus: Leader class. because Star Saber is on my autobot list
    Scorponok: Titan. duh.
    Violin Jiger: commander class, because Dai Atlas needs somebody to slap around.
    Hardshell: tfp styled because we never got one in TF:p rime
    The DJD: Leader class Tesarus and Helex, Voyager tarn, Deluxe Kaon and Vos

    as for some non-autobot/decepticons:
    Prowlstator: standard CW layout. voyager torso Long Haul, deluxe Bonecrusher, Scavenger, Mixmaster, and Scrapper.
    legend class Hook and Prowl (either one can become the head/shoulders, Hook can also snap onto Scrapper to make it look like Hook is the leg from the front)
    Bayonet: deluxe
    Vigilem: titan class
    Chela: titan class
    Grand Mal Megatron: titan

    Some great suggestions and many of which I would also personally love. I thought I'd share some thoughts on the specific ones from my edited quote of your post:
    Star Drive I would probably have the Solstar Knight one as the main version, maybe with a little Titan Master sized ROM figure too? :D  The other probably as a Selects maybe?
    Alternatively the normal version is the non Solstar version and then have a boxed set which has the Solstar version along with a little ROM figure and perhaps little figures of the other knights from her original comic? For playability maybe they could behave as Battlemasters or something even though that doesn't technically work with he story xD

    Nautica BIG YES. We need a proper faithful version of her who's not just a lazy Blurr redeco. I would probably have her as a tall deluxe/short voyager. The relative sizes vary but at times in MTMTE she seems like she has quite a bit of bulk compared to say Windblade or Chromia and Voyager budget may allow for extra engineering to give her a faithful alt mode but also keep fairly kibble free.
    Minerva Never seen the source material but she looks like a cool design and it's always nice to have more fembots
    Rum-Maj Just a thought: It would be fun if Wreck Gar's noggin had a Titan Master peg (like for example Nitro Zeus has) so you could give him a new body if you want :D 
    DJD YES! I still stand by the sentiment I have previously said that if we ARE getting more Wreckers, the DJD could serve well as their opposite number, even if they aren't specifically the Wreckers' Decepticon counterpart in fiction but they've had a lot of recent story and have cool designs. They could even work in WFC as their original role of hunting down rogue Decepticons - a good time to add Deadlock/Drift perhaps? - but could also be written as Megatron's elite death squad hunting down Autobot resistance cells and making an example of them.

    That may be the plan, but if Siege does well enough G1 or Generations representing similar series will continue to run paralell.

    WFC2 could be named OCCUPATION
    AND
    WFC3 could be named LIBERATION

    Those would be an excellent continuation of the WFC siege line.

    Brilliant ideas there, guys. The Omnibots sue can use some remakes.

    Say, about that Road Caesar idea, I think three deluxes with a totally new joint system would be good.

    Add in a deluxe Velocity and maybe a new Firestar with IDW style fire-head and that's pretty much my dream list as well
