    If they did a Metroplex within the next few years my son would be very pleased and would certainly petition me to buy it for him

    Well Super Megatron was prior to G2 and he was a starship type thing which given this is in space would make sense if they did that. But yeah hes been a Tank since the 90s save for the odd Jet and Helicopter.

    Those would both be hell to animate. We do need a Super Megatron, I hope without the Egyptian headress though.

    A pistol has no playability? I don't think kids should play with realistic guns like that, for a variety of reasons, but you know they want to.

    You’re completely right, they did consider using Blitzwing as the decepticon leader. The issue was that the Blitzwing mould was much smaller than the convoy mould, and they needed two “big ones” to be the leaders of each faction. Thus, the shiny silver P38 mould was the only option.

    By itself yes, but with and in relation to other G1 Transformers not really. So play goes from an engaging battle between your arranged forces to you pointing and pulling his trigger. Fun on its own but not as part of a larger play pattern.

    Needlenose and Tracks will probably be in Earthrise too right? Since they’ve made the other two options of the poll i feel like those two will be in Earthrise

    They could do big, absurd artillery, like a trailer piece instead of a tank/truck. It could hook up to some of the other stuff, like the deluxe bases.

    I just had a dream that the collector store I go to was relocating.

    And as a grand opening, they are releasing EarthRise figures in advance.

    Just a dream.

    The MagnaBoss and Tripredacus 2 pack would fit perfectly into WFC3's potential Beast Wars focus.

    That's actually a cool idea. It'd be a good way to both give us an Earth Megatron as well as a new Galvatron in one fell swoop.
