    wfc3: after optimus prime's death roller was trapped in the trailer dimension and found by unicron, unicron gave roller a spark and roller vowed his revenge on the autobots for forgetting him. so that means: deluxe roller look man I really want a roller and I feel like ER won't give us it

    Almost all of Power of the Primes feels like an Afterthought

    Bomb-Burst and Skull Grin would look badass

    I'd personally want them to do the shell-robot hybrid like the were doing in EARLY Generations. (To some extent) ROTF Bludgeon pretty much started that trend. Güd Bludgeon.jpg
    Güd Thunderwing.jpg
    güd Skullgrin.jpg

    And the idea of Pretenders like Bomburst into this would be pure badassery

    If they do bring back Pretenders, I wonder what name they'll give them? Like how Headmasters were redubbed Titan Masters or Targetmasters as Battlemasters.
    Of course Micromasters stayed the same so...

    It can't be that hard to remake the original Pretenders with better articulation, can it?

    As cool as it would be to get Jhiaxus..I do want to see a voyager take on the Generations 2.0 line (which coincidentally he's that design TheChangeInYourNaturePartOne-Jhiaxus.jpg jhiaxus-robot-54-jpg.jpg

    Imagine this as a voyager...and its making a NEW Decepticon boss

    I'd actually like to see something similar of that for the PRetender beasts,and monsters where their organic beast shells actually become their actual beast modes. It'd be an effective way to entice newcomers of seeing robots turn int bizarre organic beasts. It'd also serve as a prelude to a BW line.

    Exactly...Bomburst into a bat-demon hybrid with a wing gimmick (which can be made into say a Beast Wars Mindwipe)

    They wouldn't have to, not the way I envision them. Currently Leaders are Voyagers with add-on armor. This would be a Deluxe inner robot so they could put more budget towards a fully-realized pretender shell.

    This is a dope idea but it's pretty clear that Seige is THE G1 redux that old schoolers like me have been clamoring for since the late 90s. If they're gonna do them at all, they're gonna do them in their original form. The only exceptions seem to be the accessories to bases and the Micromaster bases themselves, who now have added robot modes (but, tellingly, are still generally accurate to their G1 forms).

    Although I could see them going the 'added feature' route. Much like they gave Doubledealer an added base mode while remaining slavishly accurate to all 3 G1 modes, they could give the Pretender shells the added ability to transform... but what would a samurai transform into, or whatever Skullgrin is? Plus, what would make Thunderwing (whose gimmick was that the shell could transform too) special?

    Not gonna lie I actually want to see that BW styled Mindwipe be made

    It's true that ever since Siege started Generations had gone for a more G1 accurate approach in almost everything but as we've seen there had been exceptions such as Slamdance being a repaint of Flywheels for example. So who's to say they won't make more exceptions for the Pretenders in some way? Like for example make the Pretender feature act more like Siege Ultra Magnus's armor that covers almost all of the original core robot as a super robot suit? Cliche as that sounds it's the only thing I can think of that can allow them to keep the original Pretender feature intact in a way that doesn't feel out of place.

    Organic Dinobots as Selects releases:
    • Grimlock, as a redeco of a new Beast Wars Dinobot or Megatron
    • Swoop, as a redeco of a new Beast Wars Terrorsaur
    • Slag, as a retool of Generations Rhinox
    • Snarl, as a retool of Generations Rhinox
    • Sludge, as a retool of Generations Rhinox
    TT could also use the molds for the likes of Saberback and Guiledart etc.

    I would say do 6 inch voyager class Pretenders with armored pieces that disconnect from the figure to make their counterparts.

    We need some fully articulated Pretender figures

    Boxart head, with some kind of exclusive IDW head with the corner blown off.
    God, I would buy that so fast!

    I just want that as a voyager, in his original colors.
