    That is actually a rather interesting idea. My first thought is you could have the cycle become armor that homages Prowl's Animated Samurai Armor.

    Of course I REALLY would love to see Battlemasters that become more than weapons... like a jetpack

    Crossposting from another thread:
    So I'm just wondering again about the Commander figure, specifically the 'Complements Omega Supreme' part... anyone who has Omega and Jetfire, how does the tank - which I assume is made from the removable part of Omega's torso - compare in terms of plastic, size etc? I'm sure it's been suggested already but I really do wonder if whoever the Commander figure is if he'll have a third mode that allows him to slot in to Omega in place of the tank? This theory would possibly be supported by the tank, to my knowledge, being an entirely self contained vehicle rather than some sort of half and half leftover kibble and allow for play with the tank while the commander is slotted into Omega.
    If this IS what is happening the two possibilities I can think of with precedent in TF Fiction are Lugnut due to the previously mentioned thing of him being rebuilt in Omega's image in TF:A and a Commander Class Prime who can combine with Omega as an homage to one of the Unicron Trilogy series I believe?

    Guys I feel really stupid now. Back in July I found the internal listings in Walmart’s data base for wave 5 of siege. Let’s just say we could of known some what about earthrise a lot sooner than the NYCC reveal. Both Apeface and the Micromaster spy patrol 2 both use the earthrise title in their internal listings. Both use “tra gen Wfc e” and then the full title says it out right “earthrise”.



    (face palm) I don’t know how I missed that.

    this supports the theory though that some of the wave 5 siege figures were more than likely pulled forward to siege from earthrise. Apeface, And the spy patrol 2 at least since those are the only 2 Hasbro forgot to clean up there internal listings for.

    Sorry for the rant. :oops:

    Good data. Cheers! While it doesn't quite put the 'Earthrise cannot have Cybertronian alt modes' argument to bed, it certainly provides it a hot chocolate, tucks it in tight, and sings it a lullabye.

    I have a feeling hasbro may sneek out a cheeky Archfire from Grapple, and put it on selects.

    Since Sky Lynx is likely 2020's Commander, I think that can work along with its Micromaster Blast Animal Patrol, if we're getting two Commanders a year.

    Don't forget Earthrise's Modulators which we have only seen one at this point, and Toy Fair is in few months. As for the possible Action Master respect... Maybe give original Action Masters their ability to transform into their alt modes. I guess we should get Weaponizers and Modulators in Battle Master size as for it can also benefit in Micromaster Sixteams if it happens.

    Unless we expect Battletrap again by surprise, since it might be good enough to give the Duocon another update to make him more like his compadre Skytread.

    You already know my thoughts on the topic itself, but that's a very good question. Though I can see chunks of kibble protruding from Omega Lugnut if the hypothesis turns out to be real.

    That argument could be put to bed simply by asking for proof of that claim. Hasbro might not have made a statement about exclusivity for Earth modes in that line.

    Huh? What does that have to do with astrotrain and spinister being former earthrise figures?

    I don't know. It just popped out of my thoughts. First, being their bot modes already Earth vehicles. Even though I think Skytread was an oddball from the start since PP Battletrap.
