    With Earthrise giving us a new Optimus and Seeker mold, are there any other characters from Siege that should be given another new toy in this upcoming line?

    I personally think we can still do with a proper Earth Soundwave at Voyager, especially since the current cassette characters can basically work as earth of Cybertronian devices. In addition, I still want a good Earth Ironhide and Ratchet.

    Ratchet and Ironhide. And maybe Ratchet could not be an exclusive for once?

    Ironhide and Ratchet as regular Earth vans would be cool. Ironhide can also be the exclusive this time.

    I feel like Van bros and Datsuns are easy remold/redecos into earth modes.

    Just Megatron. I need to see a leader version of that figure, preferably with better forearms and more articulation.

    None of them, there are still a fucktillion characters that haven't had a toy since the 80s/90s and need modernized updates more.
    Hasbro can make another Hound or Ironhide, after they've made the Firecons, Omnibots, Throttlebots, and Snapdragon.

    Other than a proper Slamdance I dont want to see anyone else redone so soon. Give us characters we don't have yet.

    Definitely want to have 'Earth-moded" at some point;
    Soundwave,Mirage,Hound, Sideswipe,Ironhide,Ratchet,Prowl(and repaints)

    Not essential, but would still be appreciated;
    Ultra Magnus, Megatron

    How about crosshairs? That repaint doesn't do justice to the character. Either make him a deluxe titan master like they did with the decepticons large targetmaster or make him a voyager with a driver's seat big enough to hold his targetmaster

    I could see a voyager Megatron that is scaled down from the CW leader design. Maybe he shares a mold with another Blitzwing again or Bludgeon.

    I can also see a voyager Blaster that is a triple changer with an earth SUV mode and tape deck mode compatible with micromaster minions and Soundwave is the natural retool of that. They might even be able to pull a Perceptor out of that design.

    Ratchet & Ironhide are still struggling to get that perfect design. But I could see them getting voyager toys so Ratchet can be a big ambulance with one of those "box" style back ends, which also enables a battle platform. Not sure how that would translate to Ironhide unless there can still be a full vehicle without the box part, but I'm sure it could be worked out.

    We’re getting a Megatron/Galvatron. Probably a Soundwave too. Other than that, I don’t want any of them. Their Siege versions are good enough.

    The only exception is Optimus Prime, but only in the form of ARMADA PRIME and/or FIRE CONVOY.

    Unless there is actual proof, it's best to not speak in absolutes. We don't know if a new Megatron or Galvatron are in the pipeline, so until they're revealed it's just speculation.

    Correct. I am predicting that we are getting a new Megatron or Galvatron.

    Most siege moulds were pretty good to great so I'd happy with just those.

    However, the Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen left me cold. It was just too lanky and too gappy. I would like to see a better figure for those character. More chunky and solid. (Maybe based on the old classics mould, but obicously shorter, with panels to cover the back of the legd and no clear plastic for the doors (just the windows of the doors).)

    After seeing how Hasbro sculpled the powerdasher sticker faces, I want Ironhide and/or Ratchet figures based on their G1 toy selves with headsculpts based on their sticker faces.

    (I understand I may be alone on this one)

    Would I like another take on some of the Siege characters but with Earth alt modes? Sure why not.

    Do I want them immediately in Earthrise? No.
