    I doubt they used molds designed for the “next Prime” vote or even that they had molds.

    They wouldn’t have been greebled. Magnus would have been bigger and more hollow. Hound would have had a super-mode and likely cheaper tooling for the base figure, which would have been bigger.

    I think they just had concept art and I think Warren’s said he’d like to reveal it someday.

    I kinda want to see Arcee’s. Artemis Prime, I think, was her upgraded form.

    Molds, concepts etc was what I was getting at. Even if its assumption the characters still came out in one way or another super prime forms or otherwise. So its a pretty safe bet the others will crop up at some point.

    My loathing for Facebook will keep me from voting.

    I would agree if the Autobots didn't have both a titan and a commander class, to be fair I imagine the trilogy as a whole will have many more decepticons

    Also just noticed Hastak are really desperate for a Needlenose figure he was in the vote vs Tracks which Mirage and Impactor ultimately won.

    I'm talking more from a narrative perspective. I want more Commander and Titan Decepticons as much as anybody because I want more representation outside of the '85 & '86 lines in general.

    Why is there even an option for Shrapnel and Gnaw, both of whom have received two new toys in the past five years?

    Yeah, no idea why Gnaw and Shrapnel are on the list at all, we just had a toy of the latter re-released last year, and Gnaw 2 years ago.
    Humm, but I noticed... SHrapnel, not SKrapnel. Guess they got the rights back.
    I guessed right about Runamuck, or should I say RunAMOK? :D  He has a more angular helmet than Runabout. My vote goes for him of course.

    With what rational does Hasbro decide to not just put Runamuck and Needlenose in the next part automatically? It's like asking me to vote on sleeping or eating; I would like to do both periodically. Better choices would be 4 characters from different lines that weren't g1 or 4 figures that were done poorly in the past; better yet, we vote one something that's a special 2- or 3-pack, that way it wouldn't touch normal retail.

    Just voted for this guy! :)

    Of these toys, I feel he needs the update the most. Hopefully if he wins it'll also lead to a new Spinister down the road

    #Needlenose

    Looks like runamok might win but I really want Needlenose to win, if he wins we may also get his Targetmasters. Decepticon Jets over Cars all day! Plus Needlenose imo is just a better figure and character etc. Go vote for Needlenose, hes got a second chance to be born, let's make it happen.

    I mean it looks like your sharkies could really use a deluxe-class commander. :D

    I voted for Runamuck and I hope he is (at least) deluxe size

    Of course, I hope they will do Runabout (perhaps in Selects line)

    After some careful thought, I decided I'd rather have Runamok. Gnaw and Shrapnel both have perfectly great toys already with another deluxe sized Gnaw on the way. Needlenose has a fantastic FunPub edition that came out within the past 5 years.

    But Runamok's primary deluxe toy is an aging movie-era RtS mold from FunPub which, while great, probably needs a decent update. I don't really count the Japanese Blackjack repaints as anything significant.

    And finally, Runamok makes the most sense to me in context with the story of hiding on the Ark - and would explain his car vehicle mode if Teletran fixed him on Earth along with the Autobots.

    Too bad there is nothing to determine who is in the lead.
    So far I'm counting the ones from the ark.
