    I think I heard a rumor of a Voyager Swoop. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yeah, that's one of Wreckgar39's leaks. He's next after Slag, and the other two will come after that, just not necessarily in SS.

    We do. They aren't going to go long before releasing another Prime, though. A lot of expense went into making the ER mold, and they will pimp the hell out of it through 2021. But after 2 years and a half dozen or more redecos, you can bet they'll come out with a new one in 2022 or 2023.

    While a new Prime with a line gimmick (like CW Prime, TR Prime, or Siege Prime) or some other Prime incarnation (like Powermaster, Armada, or RiD) are likely on the table, it would not shock me if they were discussing the possibility of a Commander Optimus Prime, especially if Rodimus does well.

    I can definitely see ways to improve on the existing ER figure. Fix the proportions so the chest is bigger and legs shorter. Put some TF features into the legs. Maybe a rotating eye feature to give fans both blue and yellow. Include an axe and Matrix, some effects pieces, and upgrade the hell out of the trailer and you'd get an even nearer perfect G1 CHUG. The only question is whether fans would be willing to shell out for that so soon after ER Prime and its various incarnations (because you know Commander Prime would also get redeco'd to hell and back).

    I would like to get a Decepticon Commander before Optimus. But I love the idea of a Commander Class Optimus.

    I am sure they debate a lot of options, and if they really are going to do two Commanders a year, I would expect at least 1 in 3 to be a Decepticon. I think it is fair to say if the Commander class price point continues for more than 2 years past 2021, the odds of getting a Commander Prime approach 100%.

    Just thinking the only 86 Deluxe figure left is Gnaw. I think they keep 86 waves and bayverse waves separate. You honestly think they will have a wave full of Gnaws?

    Just that the current wave is full of 86 figures and the next one only has a full case of 2 bayverse figures.

    I get this is a fan request list and all, but

    Of this entire request we are getting Blaster in some class, voyager Wreckgar, and junkions. I really don't see a future where a single one of the other things happen.
