    So I actually think that if Breakaway, Longarm, and by extension Warpath, prove to be successful figures, we will most likely get Revenge of the Fallen Game characters next like Streetwise among others.

    The reason I believe this is not only because they fall under the same umbrella as Breakaway and Warpath by having substantial roles in the video games, but because of some insight on how Hasbro views their status from the character designer of the RotF Game, Ken Christiansen.

    In his blog, he outlines the development and design process for all of the RotF Game bots. They’re very interesting reads and I recommend them, but the main point to mention is this quote:

    “If anybody remembers the first game, the characters you battled were originally meant to just get a hit of Energon, be able to transform and fight; but not be smart - or Cybertronian. But of course, by the time the movie came out, all that logic was thrown out the window. Mountain Dew, anyone?

    That's why I gave them the cyclops eye...so I started with that similar conceit with the Combaticons and Protectobots, until Hasbro told us that these are considered movie-verse characters, and had us go back and revise the heads.”


    It’s interesting that Hasbro went out of their way to make that distinction regarding the enemies, and I think the fact that they had them designed as movieverse characters in mind gives it a good chance they could be viable for Studio Series.

    Ken Christiansen’s blog is full of all sorts of cool titbits regarding the designs of the bots, here’s a link for those interested:The Bad Flip Blog: TF2 - Combaticon Heads...and stuff

    Say breakaway doesn't do well enough to greenlight stratosphere, is there a back up for commander class or would hastak not bother doing any, even for on screen characters?

    I feel like the only characters besides these two that would warrant commander class are Scorn and mayyyyybe Infernocus, depending on the size of the individual bots.

    scorn feels unlikely as he was smaller then grimlock, and unless they have a commander grimlock, his probably going to be leader

    There's potentially a backup for commander class yes

    Ah you're right, they were about the same size. I don't think they'll make a new Grimlock at commander class so I guess leader class Scorn is the most likely.

    Huh.... can't really think of on screen bots who'd work well for it aside from devcon... Maybe a redo of demolisher/scavenger?

    Scorn is 2 feet taller than Grimlock, but my Grimlock supremacy refuses to accept that

    Deep Desert Brawl straight up appears in DOTM as well. It's not even much of a stretch.

    HMS Alliance would be very cool as a Commander Class.

    with longarm being rumored i wonder if they're going to consider toyline characters with altmodes that appeared in the movies themselves, like Incinerator, Landmine, Stockade, and Brimstone

    and Ransack appeared in the novel for rotf, i wonder what his chances are

    2014 Octane bee is a bit too big to be in scale with SS Stinger. So SS version Octane Bee is a must.

    Will Studio Series ever have Commander Class figures? I mean they don’t seem to have any size class other than Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader.

    Scavenger was initially thought to be a commander and have Overload be voyager but chose to make 2 leaders for better stability.

    That's supposedly why we're getting Longarm and Stratosphere. Would be shocked if the latter doesn't also come with a mini Optimus, just like the original toy did.

    If they DO end up doing Ransack, I wonder if he’ll be a Model-T or a bi-plane.
