    I'd say the chances of netflix Cheetor being a repainted cyberverse figure is 0 since it's a wfc line comprised of wfc figures. Cyberverse Cheetor would look incredibly out of place for many reasons

    Walmart exclusives prior to WFC had a history of line hopping. See also: CHUG G1 homages reassigned to movie lines despite not looking like movie figures and being redecos of Classics or Unicron Trilogy figures.

    I'm not giving it a majority chance. But for me it's a real non-zero possibility until Netflix actually debuts WFC and we can learn if guys like Scrapface are even in it, have speaking parts, or are toy only characters.

    The only figures to line jump in wfc so far were Greenlight and Lancer, and they still more or less fit the aesthetic. Cyberverse Cheetor lacks a good bit of the standard articulation of wfc figures and just doesn't fit the aesthetic at all. Using previous exclusives as evidence in relation to a line that is intended to promote and be a tie in for a show is kind of a false comparison.

    Cheetor is a top contender for a Cyberverse Deluxe if we imagine Netflix wave Cheetor as a premium deco pull forward.

    We certainly are.
    Obviously core characters like Triggercons and Triggerbots need to be retail releases. And if the next part of the trilogy has earth in the title everyone will expect them to appear instead of some of those random 84 characters.
    I'm looking forward to Windsweeper, Dogfight, and Backstreet.
    Some amazing little toys these were in G1.

    I'm 50/50. I could totally see it happening, or at the very least having some beast bots foreshadowing the next trilogy which has a Beast Wars/Beasts theme.

    On the subject of Beasts it also just occurred to me that RiD2015 seems to have a LOT of bots with beastlike robot modes and vehicle alt modes. I kind of wonder if Generations versions of them could be another way Hasbro could try for best of both worlds by having vehicle alt modes as well as beast alt modes rather than entirely one or the other by having beastlike or entirely beastial robot modes with vehicular alt modes alongside more traditional beastformers.

    No he isn't. We know nothing of Cyberverse deluxes beyond Megatron, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Shockwave, Grimlock, Hot Rod, Arcee and Thunderhowl. The line is ending and the show is already over, there isn't going to be much new product for it, let alone product we don't already know about. And again, the netflix line is WFC, not Cyberverse. You are presenting a hypothetical of a hypothetical when it is honestly easier to believe that Cheetor is one of the yet to be revealed wave 4 Earthrise figures.

    I think it's conceivable. As my consociate, @Bob Schoonover has suggested I think it's unlikely we'll see more than a smattering. Bob’s estimate of a third at most seems generous to me. I think, at best, we’ll see a similar ratio as we saw of Unicron Trilogy figures in Siege, or Quints in ER.

    While I'm very flattered by the suggestion, I'd remind you that we've established size classes, and that I come out as a tall Deluxe. Hopefully the below photo, with Legends Class girlfriend pictured for scale, illustrates this well. No, you are all very welcome.

    I’d be incredibly surprised if this Netflix listing is for a Cyberverse redeco. It’s very early days for this sub-line, and we might be a little presumptive to say what will or won’t happen with it. But like I say, I’d be very surprised to see a figure from a non-Generations line ported over.

    Ok, if you could pick just one of these guys for WfC:III, in thirty words or less, why wouldn’t you pick Crankcase.

    I like Ruckus's color scheme. Its an odd but flamboyant combination of late Decepticon color schemes. My first proper exposure to it was the Collector's club and while yes it was an Offroad repaint (head and all) I always wondered why not we get that purple and yellow paintjob into modern generations. Crankcase is cool but Ruckus seems more my speed.

    so, triple changers, the ones who are a bitch to engineer,
    who the hell seems to be too hard to engineer well as a voyager and should be a leader and who should be a voyager?
    I'm talking about blitzwing, octane and sandstorm because I feel like those 3 are the most likely and quickswitch because I want him to exist again
    astrotrain is my unit of mesurement: someone who would be a bitch to engineer as a voyager,

    which should go where

    The leader class version with Apex Armor will look like a Roman Centurion, but with multiple guns, battlemasters, and some wrap-around armor that increases his height and gives him big gauntlets for punching stuff. The Selects version will be a special Diaclone @barry deco, where he has black curly hair and the clothing is all disco-tastic.
