    I'm thinking if the characters who are far away in the background will appear in the next chapter. That happened with Wheeljack.

    And with Unicron looming in the background that sort of supports this notion. And as the story travels the characters get more prominent. Would be cool if they had an art change every 6 months or so to reflect the incoming characters

    Yup! And maybe if they do this again in chapter 3 they could tease the next trilogy/toyline.

    I've seen several folks suggest a leader class Galvatron, who could be armored up like siege Shockwave. That would be fantastic, especially if the armor made him look like the Energon version. Really hoping they go that route with him.

    Hmmmm, that looks like an ocean to me. Maybe the Quint planet from TF:TM?

    I haven't kept up with the news but has anyone heard of a possible Decepticon Wipe-out being released in this line? I have been very happy seeing the companion bots for all the citybots finally getting release and I thought Wipe-out would be a low cost repaint of PotP Tailgate. It's either that or repaint one myself.

    I'm still confused as to why they keep using TR Galvatron in this line. It's more or less widely reviled (unless you buy stuff to make it less Headmaster-y...) but it's clearly the TR design, both here in the artwork, and the slug(??) that's included with Siege Unicron.
    So...yeah. I'm not sure what the deal is, but Hasbro doesn't help themselves when they P.O. the audience with stuff like this. I'm just glad I kept my TR Galvatron and I'll call it a day.

    Unless they actually do make a new Galvatron and make it nicer than what's already out there...

    They confuse me to no end, sometimes. Their decisions...

    Never confuse personal opinion with popular one.
    TR Galvatron is a widely beloved mold.
    It even was used for a semi-ko that was very popular.

    Semi-ko? Got a link? I love what some KO makers do to figures. Especially if the colors are hideous, those are the really fun ones.
    As for me, I like my TR Galvatron a good bit. I got rid of my UT version in favor of it. Paid for the cost of the TR version and left me a little spending money afterward.

    It's possible that a potential WFC Galvatron can use the TR design as a basis in making the new mold with of course tweaks to improve upon the original.

    OHH! I had it. I sold it when I got out of MP collecting. I thought we were talking about another CHUG-like version. Sorry.

    That artwork doesn’t look like TR Galvatron to me... It looks like another G1 Animated based Galvatron design.

    The legs there are totally new.

    I don’t really take much stock in the storyline that Earthrise is about the Autobots and Decepticons traveling thru space on their way to Earth when clearly they’re already on Earth. It’s a fun notion. I just care about getting cool modern Transformers and try not to focus too much on the story aspect. But, in their travels, would it be too much to ask that the Autobots make pit stops at Paradron and Junkion? Would love to get new versions of Sandstorm and Wreck-Gar.

    I could see Junkion and Paradron being places they would stop at before Earth, maybe our planet wasn't their first choice?

    Considering that the cybertronian colonies seem to exist it’s possible that Earth has been the home of Minicons and Micromasters ala Armada.

    I hope not, they've conflated Minicons and Micromasters enough. =/

    I'm hoping that if the Arcee listing is true, that we'll also get a Paradron medic. And Sandstorm.
    I really liked the episode Fight or Flee- so many generics running around.
