    Just to clarify I mean these guys:

    However that's not to say I don't eventually want the six team combiners down the line.

    Not betraying anything brah. I never said BM was the only one I wanted. <3

    Would the sixteams be accessory-less 6-packs? Or would they have all their combiner gear on them? 'Cause the budget for one of them with modern articulation may bump them up to Leader class. D=

    What's the point of Hoist connecting to bases? Does it have to do with his mysterious bridge mode? So far all we have is a shot of a truck connected to a base looking awkward.

    Probably for towing parts. Which is fine by me, since other parts(or Soundbarriers) could be attached to his side 5mm ports for even more base relocation.

    I would love a Skyquake, and I tend to favor G1 toy size over the size in fictional portrayal in many cases. But in this case I'd rather see Skyquake in leader class. Well... In old leader class.
    Please, Hasbro. Bring it back.

    For Adult collectors, nothing really. But when marketing to children it might be channeling Lego's or "Bob the Builder".

    If they actually do a skyquake or thunderclash or electro, do they have the technology to make plastic in the gold color as the original that won’t crumble to dust? Or will that never happen?

    I thought that technology was already used.
    I don't remember where, but I remember reading so in this forum.

    I think cybertron cannonball has the same goldish plastic as those guys but I’m not sure..so maybe? Also speaking of him, the star seekers would Be perfect as mercenaries! Cannonball, Axer, brimestone, ferek and tornado, space pirates could be decent guys to put in this mercenary faction!

    They'll likely just paint the colors regular.

    Oh yes! Gimme a new Thundertron and a Cannonball. Axer wasn't really a Starseeker though. He was part of Thundertron's crew for like five minutes. Maybe if they do a new Cyclonus and Nightstick they'll redeco them into Ferek and Tornado.

    Ah, but he was in the tfcc comic, and you know who else was a star seeker in that comic? Tidal wave!

    I want two Longarms: The Hoist redeco and a Leader Siege Shockwave retool to homage Animated Longarm.

    That doesn't seem unlikely, IMO. I would think that Skyquake would be at least that tall, and since unified scale, size classes have internally varied very intentionally. If Skyquake is on Hasbro's mind(and that's sadly a big "if"), I wouldn't doubt it.
