    That cliffjumper is looking cute as hell.
    As for Megatron's alt mode
    Giant stationary Turret , similar to Galvatron, would that be so bad?

    In a vacuum it's not bad, but with the G2 tank design, the Energon jet design, the Animated helicopter design, or the IDW stealth bomber design all around, with each having solid repaint potential, it'd be a bit of a waste to have Megatron steal Galvatron's alt-mode instead of using one of the ones already in his closet.

    I'd love to see a Megatron with a cannon alternate mode. It would be something new, and almost certainly be drastically different from the futuristic space-cannon that Galvatron turns into.
    With that being said, I don't think it's very likely.

    Had it not made sense, then you wouldn't be on a Transformer thread telling us it doesn't make sense.

    They're not going to release a cheaper Unicron at retail after thousands of collectors dropped $700 on theirs.

    It was even called "War for Cybertron Unicron."

    Ah I understand. Hasbro specifically had me in mind when they created the concept for Megatron. They made him a gun because they knew a few years later I would be born, and then 35 plus sum odd years later I would stumble across this specific thread to speak my gospel. Brilliant. Thanks for the profound insight on the matter.

    Liking what I am seeing.
    Surprised to see Shockwave again.
    Megs is so far looking fairly G1. I hope for a better one that Siege.

    Looking forward to some of this stuff

    I hear ya.
    Been collecting the Classics since ‘06... and I been content with those offerings;
    I suspect tho when this line runs its course I’ll likely call it a day and call myself ‘done’.

    It's very likely the Titan after Scorponock will be an Autobot and all of the City Bots and Sky Lynx(*) will have been done by then, on firting with the Micromaster theme, Grandus would be perfect and a proper scale could likely be achieved as Grandus was more so thick, wide etc as opposed to being extremely tall akin to Metroplex.

    Some suggest that Metroplex could be the next Titan but the original which was rereleased recently is still great, holds up well etc. Also in keeping with scale, a scale Metroplex is still impossible, some may make note of Scorponock but his size in the comics have taken many forms, his primary concern in toy form in terms of upcoming figure would be to scale with TR Fortress Maximus thus completing that set.

    If Metroplex is reintroduced into the canon of the WFC cartoon or comic in a new scale close to Titan Class Omega Supreme, then there would be a huge possibility of a new Titan Class figure

    However, the TF lore as a whole still has plenty of characters left whom fit nicely into the WFC Titan Class such as Grandus and many others, we should give those characters a chance before rehashing what has been done before in my personal opinion 20190924_114542.jpg tww_primus_redux_by_dcjosh_d9hr2d-fullview.jpg

    I hope we get the Dinobots again, without the combining gimmick, I don't like the recent version of them, for Primus please give us 5 great Dinobots in great scales, like Grimlock, Sludge and Slug height like Optimus or more and the others 2 into deluxe size (Swoope and Snarl), please! And a decent new mold for Arcee!!!

    This would absolutely rock ! I know saying this Invites all forms of hate , but I'd kill for just a couple of modern Pretenders, Deceptions of course. I can't even imagine what could be done now adays in regards to the original Prentender concept...

    The diorama promotional shots are great. It gives the characters a nice sense of scale.

    Well then you might be happy to see that the Dinobots in Sunbow scale(the scale that the WFC trilogy is using) are gigantic! 4 of them are at least as tall as Magnus, so most of them would be Leaders for sure. =)

    You know Wheeljack was in a lot siege packaging, but never got a figure. Makes me worry about BumbleBee. Also is it weird to have BumbleBee in the backround like that? Its like they're trying to hide him. Also, it doesn't look like Cliffjumper's mold.....wait a minute, why isn't cliff jumper here?

    Wheeljack and Sunstreaker were in the siege artwork and now Sideswipe and Hound are in Earthrise artwork. I think this was just Hasbro's way of tying the two lines together
