    Consider that wfc part 1 was 1984 and part 2 is going to be 1985 I would bet part 3 will be 1986. Also consider 2021 will be the 35th anniversary of the transformers movie and, for those of us who backed him, unicron will arrive.

    I suspect beast wars fans will enjoy a snapdragon retooled into megaton, apeface retooled into Optimus primal And a few g1 deluxe insecticons from pulse select next year.

    I'm probably in the minority here, but if they do a Blaster as a new mold in Earth rise, I REALLY REALLY hope they don't go with the boom box. I always hated the "device" alt modes. I could never wrap my head around why a robot bigger than a car bot turns into a thing smaller than a car. That's why I actually like Siege Soundwave's alt mode. I at least hope they BS in a third mode if they do go boom box for Blaster.

    I find it likely personally that Galvatron will have a winged jet pack and shoulder armor as a Leader and will get a Superlink/Energon Megatron redeco.

    I'm a beast wars fan and I'd enjoy them. Do beast wars fans not enjoy relistic looking insect robots?

    Another thing is that I know we had Combiner Wars but I just feel that all the Combiners should get a remake and in matter fact I know that it will never happen but I do want a Menasor and Superion or Bruticus be able to tower over and yes we do have third party for that and that can kinda fit more for Masterpiece but with CW Devastator and POTP Predaking the right size and all the other Combiners are extremely small I just feel that since they are going through the Sunbow chart the Combiners should be bigger and yes I know these Combiners are ment to be small but the way Hasbro is going they should be big.I would love to have a Voyager Starscream stand on a shoulder of Bruticus while he holds Megatron in his hand.

    Well, until Hasbro figures out how to retool a car into a cheetah I think we will have to take what we can get.

    If we do get Doubleclouder he needs a true Godmaster figure that either swaps between the 2 modes somehow or is actually 2 figures. Honestly I'd settle for a singular humanoid one as long as it is still an engine. Everyone seems to be keeping their gimmicks so it's not unfathomable.

    I had wanted to think so too, but that was before someone posted a picture of Toyworld's TM Megatron in Grimlock colors and all the third party BW fans said: I want this version more.

    I honestly want all of the post 86 characters to get toys in WFC and nobody else.
    I mean, the Deluxe Insecticons and the Omnibots really need new figures too, but that is all.

    A new Doubledealer has been on my wishlist for a long time and he should be perfect.
    A triple-changer with missile truck and vulture modes with the inclusion of Knok and Skar is a must.

    Sureshot and Pointblank also need to join their buddy Crosshairs fast.

    And with Spinister coming out we should also get Quake and Needlenose soon.

    Apeface also needs his buddy Snapdragon.

    And then there's Scoop, Quickmix, Landfill, Slapdash, Getaway, Joyride, Fangry, Horribull, Squeezeplay, Hosehead, Siren, Nightbeat, Windsweeper, Ruckus, Crankcase, Dogfight, Override, Backstreet...

    Lots of post 86 characters with earth alt modes that would fit Earthrise nicely.

    He could make a nice weaponiser.

    eh, thats generalizing a bit much considering im a pretty big bw fan and i think that idea is stupid, so its definitely not "all". in addition to that, bw characters getting repainted into g1 characters is a bit different than saying "hey, these g1 guys turn into animals, that should make bw fans happy regardless of if these characters were in bw or not"

    Sorry for generalizing.
    I was a bit disappointed in the BW fandom when I read those comments.
    But I guess there is a silent majority who didn't comment.

    probably, bw fans can be pretty vocal, and they are usually pretty vocal about wanting actual bw characters. the ones saying they wanted grimlock more were probably less bw specific fans and more casual fans that like bw

    I hope we get at least one female character in Earthrise. I know there’s not a huge list to pull from but heck even just a Road Rage retool (assuming there’s a Tracks in the future) would be nice.

    I am behind this 100%. Even if she ends up as a Select or packed into an Amazon exclusive, I'd really like to see Road Rage make the leap over into toy form.

    I do hope we get a Tracks.
    When it comes to fembots I'd like to see NuRID Strongarm from Siege Hound.

    I was going to disagree because I was thinking more of Ironhide but the more I think about Hound the more I like it. Good pick.

    Commander class energon treadbolt, we need the buff fembot, also maybe a easy space warp from astrotrain >:[ come on hastak, put your sweatshop employees to work

    Also, I hope we finally get blaster’s tapes plus slugfest and overkill and squwalktalk and beast box or would a combining micro master made from two rectangles look garbage (I’d still argue that the cassettes would work better as legendish figures that turned into vehicles but nooo they Must fit into soundwaves chest >:[)
