    Well, considering there is threads like the popping up lately, like...

    Thebeastman's
    Would anyone else be interested in a new "Universe 1.0" line?

    Galvatron1998's
    If there was a Botcon 2017...

    & SG Roadbuster's
    Creative Challenge: GDO

    Now, to add to all this, we have...
    The Battle in a Box thread.

    The idea of the thread is simple.

    Originally the battle in a box consist of two deluxe-sized figures, both being redecos. One autobot. One Decepticon. (And sometimes a minicon or two, if the figure included it.)

    A prime example is the Ultra Magnus VS Treadshot pack.

    But to begin, here is a template to see how it goes.

    Example:
    Sideswipe (UW Lightspeed Redeco, Based on the Armada autobot)
    VS
    Nemesis Prime (Warrior class (Deluxe-sized) Power Surge Optimus Prime)

    Well, let's begin.

    Battle in a box is a great way to build Combiner Wars Characters for all the ones who got stepped over or missed out for other reasons (like an RID version existing as with Sideswipe).

    We could have things like (Combiner Wars)

    Sideswipe Vs Slicer
    Hoist Vs Thundercracker
    Silverstreak vs Sunstorm
    Jazz vs Skywarp
    Wreck Gar (deluxe Groove with new head) vs Detritus
    Autobot Ratchet (perhaps in red or yellow) vs Shuttle Blast Off (toy colours)

    Or

    G2 Offroad vs G2 Alpha Bravo
    G2 Groove (deluxe) vs G2 Blast off (shuttle)

    The advantage of making a G2 Groove in such a way 1st is then people will not complain when / if there is a G2 Defensor Boxed set that contains Legends Groove & Rook. and it side steps the problem of otherwise excluding him or Legends Groove

    Also

    Perhaps Legends Class 3 packs might work too ?

    Maybe based around the e-Hobby Minibots characters
    or including the likes of Titans Returns Eject, & Frenzy or even Dion
