    I guess I was envisioning the Armada Prime there as a component of an MP Armada Supermode Prime. He’s about Voyager scale, right?

    But those 5mm peg hands. Only MP Bumblebee had those, right?

    Well, it depends on how big Armada Prime's core robot body is compared to G1 Prime.

    And I also think MP Star Saber's core robot had 5mm hands.

    What do you think will happen for Optimus Prime for part 2 or 3. Basically each part of a trilogy can't seem to get enough Optimus Primes.

    Well, G1 Galvatron was to scale with Armada Megatron when he crossed over in the comics. So in theory MP10 and an MP Armada Megatron would be eye to eye. And Armada Prime was only MP Megatron’s height in Supermode, right?

    So, Supermode Armada Prime would be MP10’s height when combined and have a beefy Voyager cab robot mode that would probably be comparable to an MP car robot?

    I can't be the only one hoping that Armada Prime will be a Siege release here. Star Convoy could be a Siege release too. As long as they're not MPs (they've gotten to expensive for me to justify even acquiring one) I'll be fine.

    Star convoy will not be siege, he doesn’t fit in the pricing classes, isn’t covered in combat pegs for blast effects and isn’t one of the three leaders that will be released under the siege banner

    Judging from HasTak going back to mostly earlier ‘84-‘86 characters in this line, I’d bet my house Sky Lynx will be if not the next figure, then one of the next two. Otherwise I’d say your guesses are spot on, just add Galaxy Shuttle & Star Saber to the list (Thunderwing likely being the first Decepticon in this scale)

    Personally I think Scorponok will be the Titan next year, so ‘maybe’ you’d get a Commander Fort Max then too? And a Commander Scorponok a few years down the line?

    Scorponok/Fort Max works in both scales, but I see Titan Scorponok as the one being prioritised & don’t see two versions of him being released so close together.

    More than anything, I want a new Deluxe Powerglide. Preferably one that doesn't need a bra.

    I would love it if WFC-S Leader OP could combine with Omega Supreme as a double homage to RID and Energon, Energon homage of Optimus Supreme and homage RID by calling the combination Omega Prime. 20190210_205603.jpg 20190210_205754.jpg

    So, how long until we see Springer, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Sunstreaker, Ratchet and maybe Wheeljack?

    i agree he will show up in part 2 or 3, but him being in siege would defeat the purpose of the fan vote. ultra magnus, shockwave and omega supreme all lost previous fan votes and didnt make it in until later lines

    That's another thing I wanted to cover in my speculation too. I feel like the "bigger" Minibots in Siege scale are too large for the Legends class. They would necessarily have to be small Deluxes with large accessories or they'd be super hollow Legends, and I don't think I'd want the latter. Deluxe Powerglide would be perfect as a Deluxe in Siege scaling.

    It's too bad that the Combiner Wars Powerglide(and a few of the other Prime Wars Minibots) is ever-so slightly off scale wise. But at the same time, maybe his next figure will be better anyway?

    Yeah i threw him in as a placeholder on some of my WFC-S# list guesses but he's not coming. We know all 20 (DLX or greater) Autobots (Lancer being the only one not confirmed) that are coming and 10 of the 13 Decepticons. Wheeljack and the other bots that keep coming up will be in part 2 or 3.

    I wish they'd bring back Scout Class. That's the perfect size for the Mininots. Legends is fine and Deluxe is fine, but Scout was the halfway point.

    They just need to bring the legends class back.
    They always did miracles with the legends class. And we only need a few minibots and Throttlebots in legends class before we have them all.
    I personally hope they aren't going to do the minibots and Throttlebots who haven't gotten a good legends class toy as hollow, battle-damaged, greebled deluxes.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for that. My TW Max is getting tired of patting IF Scorp on his head. Why did TW stop with their Headmasters anyway?

    This Armada Prime is too small for an MP, and is a completely new mold so likely isn't a purely exclusive release. There haven't been any completely new-mold LG-EX figures and with Takara's lines now featuring figures identical to worldwide releases, I doubt there is a budget for them to create an all-new figure for themselves.

    This is clearly meant to be a mainline release. However, it doesn't 100% match Siege's aesthetic and doesn't seem to have many, or any, COMBAT ports. That said the number of said ports is highly variable between figures so that might not be the best indicator.

    I think the idea of it being from a Siege sequel series is likely. I already started a whole thread about the evidence pointing towards many future UT-inspired toys, I think that's likely the direction WFC is going to go next.
