    I hope not on the former and I don't think so on the latter. I was actually hoping to see some story or fiction accompanying Siege (you know something to get me more involved with the universe). But because the line - in terms of designs (Cybertronian altmodes) - ended up being prettty random, I decided to not even be bothered anymore and just enjoy. So I am not waiting anymore to hear whether Ravage is some kind of Cybertronian 'animal' or if the Micromasters came from future Earth.

    That said, I am very curious how Earthy this second line is gonna be.

    Woh, calm down. I'm not trying to gatekeep anything. I don't care about any "rules", post what you like. I have no idea what warranted this response, but if I said anything wrong, I'm sorry.

    Is it the wording I'm using? Is it the tone my post is implying? I have no idea how to fix this. =/

    It's right there, dude. Next time you see someone post a speculation that you don't necessarily agree with, just take a breath before you post and ask yourself if you really need to correct/challenge them.

    Sorry. I'm very, very sorry. I guess that statement went clear over my head as a potentially problematic post. I might be too desensitized to the word "valid" and its impact on other people.

    Again, I'm sorry. ;_;

    You don't need to apologise. It'd just be good if you took a moment before posting when you disagree with or challenge someone.

    Aw, Barry. Don't be so harsh on Orangeitis. He's a really nice person.

    Here are my Guesses for future figures in the line (or phase 3)
    Deluxe:
    Bumblebee (Cliffjumper - Reshell + new head)
    Voyager
    Inferno (Grapple Retool)
    Skywarp & Thundercracker (Starscream repaint)

    I'm also guessing that we'll be seeing Megatron in some form.

    Camshaft could probably be a Prowl reshell, where you reverse the front and back of the car. Prowl's legs become the front of the car, his chest becomes the back. Sideswipe is already basically Overdrive.

    This guy once took out Predaking together with his teammates Overdrive and Downshift.
    They also took on the Fallen himself but Camshaft got impaled in the process.
    But that's not all: The Omnibots are supercool inter-dimensional warriors!
    He looks kinda cool. Kinda Go-botty.
    I don't know if they can retool Prowl into him, because if the do him I hope he'll have the back of the car as his chest.

    Are you calling my TFSS Needlenose inappropriate?

    I wouldn't call a Decepticon inappropriate to his face. But his behavior is questionable.

    Double dealer could somehow
    Wouldn’t it make more sense for prowl to be retooled into overdrive? I mean both have the hood boob unlike sideswipe

    You know what transformers lacks a lot of? Alt modes for colder climates/snowplows/stuff. This is why I am demanding for pcc icepick or armada iceberg to come back with a new figure. What if the decepticons want to melt the polar ice caps? You can’t stop them when all your autobot troops don’t have 4 wheel drive

    That's just how he is. Needlenose is a dependable guy. You can build your gestalt on him.

    For all his faults, Animated Sentinel Prime was a snowplow of sorts.

    That is true. I just would love to see more snowmobiles, snowplows, and other vehicles suited for colder climates in transformers I think it would be neat. This ain’t speculation it’s just me wanting armada iceburg and pcc Icepick to get new figures
