    Oh Primus no! Don't you remember how ratios work? The current 1/50 chance you find ER Prime at the store multiplied by the 1/10 chance you have of finding toilet paper, means you would only have a 1/500 chance of finding "TP-mus Prime"

    They would probably name it "Trucky Bear" ... because the Charmin bears are red and blue... and the trailer would say "Charming"

    The Omnibots are far past due for release. They would be an amazing commando unit for Earthrise.

    I hope we'll finally see them and the Deluxe Insecticons in the next subline.

    I feel like they COULD be as redecos. They're a category of character I'd expect as head retools and body redecos rather than original molds.

    It's a bit of wait and see what Hasbro does with them if they do them.
    They did a pretty good job with the Powerdashers.
    I do hope they manage to give the Omnibots their "attack modes".

    I can see at least one of the Omnibots being packed with two well known characters like how Aragon was paired with Mirage and Impactor for Siege.

    I think Earthrise would be a great line to get the Omnibots and Deluxe Insecticons out there. The Throttlebots would be another great group to get made too. But I suspect my ideas won't come to fruition because Skywarp, Thundercracker, Ramjet, Dirge, Thrust, the other Battlecharger, Prowl, Bluestreak and Inferno are more likely. Those are easy repaints and slight remolds that can be done. And the funny thing is that we want them done even though we complain about the laziness of repaints and slight remolds. If it could be fit into the line somehow I still say the Omnibots and Deluxe Insecticons would be awesome.

    As you mentioned the 3 pack I wonder if they will do one that has Runamuck in it seeing as he won the vote this time just like Mirage and Impactor did?

    That's entirely possible. It could also include characters that are ripe to give us legacy repaints too. Such as Paradron Medic/Lifeline from Arcee for example.

    So how likely is it that we might get the Omnibots this time arouns? If it is likely, what are some molds that could be used for them?

    Dunno about Camshaft or Overdrive, but Downshift can be retooled from Tracks

    If Omnibots released I hope they are original molds. Want that Ferrari Overdrive. Definitely with attack modes. Could be in a big pack with Tracks as Special Operations group with third attack modes. I mean that would be the dream. Also they could tie into an Earthrise cartoon if we get one to have first ever animated iterations. Bigger dream. Sergeant Overdrive and crew would be amazing animated. And yeah Deluxe Insecticons would rule as well.

    Possibly....yes but Overdrive HAS to be a Ferrari. Not like Alternators foolishness.

    you DARE challenge Iruini? the ideas master? the man with a loose grip on his sanity and little self confidence? I will remove your teeth if you attempt this again >:[
    I mean, tracks could work for maybe one.
    sometimes you gotta take what you can get, I mean I'm thinking about this like how they did the powerdashers, sure none of them looks remotely like thier original figure but still conveyed the essence of them.

    I think Omnibots would be a nice counterpart to last year's Refraktor.
