    Technically, it was the other way ar- you know what, I agree. =x

    I would call it lazy, inaccurate, and not up to par with Siege's core line.

    Nah, I think they'll actually use his original Cybertronian car mode, but add skirted wheels.

    Exactly. At least, excluding multi-packs and Selects Siege.

    Yeah, I don’t think we’ll get Jazz from Prowl. Especially with the Prowl mold getting 3 reuses already.

    I think a future Jazz mold will keep the traditional robot mode design, doors will be hidden and the legs will be reversed from Prowl’s design. I mean, those are the obvious features.

    Maybe we’ll get that weird trapezoid/cubic vehicle alt-mode but it just wouldn’t be super pronounced. I can imagine Jazz with a similar alt-mode shape as Prowl but definitely more angular. A nice boxy-ish grill/front bumper and harder curves around the hood/bonnet. If Prowl is a bar of soap, Jazz would cell phone shape with harder angles/edges and a bigger/stumpy passenger cabin.

    I think the cabin, taller and stumpier, would be the distinguishing feature for Jazz in contrast to Prowl and Sideswipe’s flatter, swept back cabins.

    As strange as it might sound, something like a 40k Land Speeder could work as a more detailed version of Jazz's cartoon Cybertron mode

    I was picturing something sleeker like a Star Trek TNG shuttle but maybe something in between.

    I would love it if an Autobot had a straight up Star Trek shuttlecraft alt-mode. Hell, make a brand new Autobot with this alt-mode and retroactively insert him into G1. He or she would be a great counterpart to Powerglide and/or Cosmos. Imagine, Cosmos and this shuttlecraft guy going on deep space missions for the G1 Autobots?

    At this very moment I am watching a brand new Sunbow episode in my head featuring Cosmos and ShuttleGuy traveling into deep space, fighting Astrotrain and some Coneheads, and pulling off some sort of heist. Screw you Skylynx! This ShuttleGuy is much more friendlier!

    What about Aileron from the IDW comics? Her short and chubby body type would fit it well and her altmode was just some weird blobby flying car thing, so I can't see anyone being bothered by the change. I thought she was a good character, I'd like to see her developed more.

    Not long until SDCC. We can make it. There's still fun to be had in the interim.

    For example: Do you want your new Generations Terrorsaur to be Deluxe or Voyager class?

    We're at the inevitable low point of the speculation cycle; release schedule is pretty nailed down, we've seen nearly everything, and we've only got a handful of rumours for the next chapter. So, people start talking about minutiae to try and keep their interest active. There's much worse examples of it than here. I mean, you've probably seen the Apeface thread in the news forum, right?

    I guess there's probably two options. You could just stop dropping by the thread until things pick up (I'm certainly doing that) or you could venture some speculation on what's coming up in the next chapter (I've done that to death, so I'll spare everyone another list).

    And yes, it'll pick up again and be a lot more fun in the not to distant future. I expect we'll get a sneaky teaser from Hasbro just before SDCC, much like we did with Sideswipe last year. Then it'll be speculation galore.

    That would work! If you wanted to get even more Star Trek referencing he could be called Gallileo like the original Shuttlecraft ^^

    That would work well (sorry, replied to the wrong post before)

    ^ Doing speculation the right way.

    (Deluxe, pls.)

    (And a new Galvatron, and Gears/Swerve.)

    I’m waiting for the day hastak sells out and makes a titan class bumblebee

    Until then, I hope we eventually slapdash and joyride to go with getaway, dreadwind and darkwing

    I mean, let’s see:

    Optimus as Commander class without a trailer and Bumblebee as Leader class would be in robot mode (but not vehicle mode) scale with G.I.Joes.

    To get vehicle mode scale, you WOULD need short Titan Optimus and a short Commander Bumblebee.

    I am vaguely surprised with the triple sized MP Optimus KO (which is big enough for Marvel Legends) that nobody has triple sized TR figures as the cockpits would seat G.I.Joes. (MPs are less likely to have usable seats.)

    I would be down for a commander class Optimus + trailer. Trailer is NOT armor but is a weapons platform, mobile attack base. Have the trailer split in half and form a pair of shielded gun turrets. Do something creative HasTak!

    I mildly miss an old school, simple, original G1 style trailer. I’m looking at the released Siege Autobot and can imagine them posed behind a converted trailer/attack base.

    I really doubt we’ll see anything like this in the near future but maybe once WFC wraps up and it can happen in

    What if instead of a prime, the trailer came with a transformable weaponizer roller?
    also if we ever do get a siege trailer I hope not just prime can haul it. Maybe if we get a siege huffer it would be cool if he could haul this hypothetical trailer

    Honestly? Leader.

    I personally hope that lazy redecos/retools get remade as well. Joyride was poor and an inaccurate representation of the character, same with Dreadwind & Darkwing. With Siege's heavy slant into G1 accuracy, I don't think proper Powermasters are off the table.

    Edit: Spelled "lazy" wrong because groggy.

    Voyager simply because only his toy was small not his tv show design.

    Airazor needs a deluxe

    Trantulas needs a new toy badly, also think it would be great to see a transmetal 2 Megatron to go with potp optimusprime
