    We will probably get more info on the seacons at wonderfest since they’re not a hasbro project

    If we're going to get Primal Prime in Selects and I hope we do he needs to be a repaint of POTP Optimal Optimus cause that's what the original Primal Prime basically was.

    That being said I wouldn't mind seeing the Siege Apeface mold be repainted as Optimal Optimus as a homage to how the TR Apeface Titanmaster drone was repainted in Optimal Optimus colors in Takara's EX Convobat set in some manner or another.

    Or, since Optimal Optimus just got a new toy, we could give Primal Prime (an awesome and valid character in his own right) a separate look that’s still similar to his original toy. Like Apeface.

    They could sure, but they wont, it doesn't really make sense, no offense. A Primal Prime should be an OPOP retool, not Apeface, just not logical.

    Wait, and an Apeface retool into Optimal Optimus makes more sense?

    I think it does. They can get a Megatron out of Snapdragon for symmetry. Optimal Optimus in POTP got two uses and is a lower quality figure.

    Or maybe Apeface gets done up as Oilmaster or Pretender Optimus Prime himself.

    Deco the jet mode up as the Targetmaster and the robot mode as the inner robot.

    Remember that Botcon had a camo Combat Hero Megatron Double Pretender as the corresponding enemy of the Optimus Prime gorilla double pretender?

    Apeface' Selects deco could be the Prime opposite to that Megatron.

    I’d be fine with that, at least it wouldn’t be something we just got last year.

    Primal Prime from Apeface would be better IMHO than Optimal Optimus at least if they wanted to go that route.

    Though I think a fairly straight Optimus Primal and Megatron from Apeface and Snapdragon would play well. It’s not that different from Hot Rod being in 3 lines back to back.

    But, hey! Let’s say we get a Snapdragon and he needs an alt deco to justify cost. There is the Clobber Titan Master sculpt out there.

    Grimlock from Snapdragon would be cool IMHO because we’re probably in a dry spell between main line Grimlocks.

    Why not Snapdragon with Clobber’s head as G2 Grimlock in the unused G2 deco?

    It would be interesting if the theme for Chapter 3 would be TF the Movie since that’s probably the year Unicron will hit if/when he makes the goal.

    I'm guessing Galvatron Kup and Rodimus get Siege versions Due to Unicron.

    I could see them doing a 'Heralds of Unicron' box set released alongside the Titan toy, with like Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge. Or possibly alternate decos of them assuming we were to get them in the mainline. Ooh what if they were decoed to be mid reformatting so with like 'futuristic' gridlines on one half of the figure? Or just the whole figure xD

    Though now makes me wonder if they might do a generic Sweep and have Scourge in a potential 3-pack and give some distinction between them, maybe slightly different colours and/or head?

    I have seen people say that the next SIEGE line will be the characters in their Earth modes. Does anyone know if this is true at all or just speculation?

    its false, the next line is still pre earth, though some characters may have kind of sort of earth modes like astrotrain

    Also for clarity, Siege is only the name of part one. The trilogy is called War for Cybertron.
