    I guess, thinking it over, I just really want Broadside to be able to have the Aerialbots on deck like the TR toy but using the CW toys. Maybe leave out Silverbolt because he's huge but if you could fit the limbs on there, that's the size I'd want.

    Weird idea but G2 Dreadwing. The concept always interested me but Dreadwing always was just a B-52 with tank treads for his third mode. Sooo why not have a roughly voyager/leaderish scaled DW and a smallish Deluxe scaled Smokescreen that can combine. Deco is fairly simple so most of the budget could go towards engineering a tank mode that doesn't compromise robot or jet.

    How about a Commander class two pack of Dreadwind and Darkwing, two roughly voyager TFs with their combined mode with new "tapes" as power masters.

    This is the best idea I have read for a Decepticon Commander size release. I mostly want Star Saber (as indicated in the poll). I would love to see those two next year to cover both sides.

    The rumored SG Jetfire is of absolutely no interest to me (along with the rest of SG). How does he even work in an opposite universe? Does he switch from Evil Autobot to Heroic Decepticon, or does he flip from good to evil?

    For me, theres only one option outside the ones on the poll that I could really see Hasbro actually doing, and thats our boi Thunderclash. While his normal robot mode could just be a Voyager or Leader, depending on how tall they decide to make him (especially if they decide to make him more like his IDW apperance than the G1 toy, please god), I doubt they'd want to do him without his trailer, which with how absolutely fuck-off huge it is, and the battle platform mode, which would fit in with how they're handling Kingdom Rodimus' trailer.

    I voted Beast Wars Rampage, just because I'm interested to see how an update would look to his design (And because I'm a Beast Wars fanboy).

    Tidal Wave, Deathsaurus, and Star Saber would all be cool too.

    I really loved that Magnaboss rumor, untrue as it turned out to be; I would like to see him get the slot.

    My list is short...

    Star Convoy - play pattern, gimmick etc is no done well at leader price point, it's not really meant to be a figure, but a modular PLAYSET. The one we got was rubbish.

    Dai Atlas - same as above, parts count demands a Commande class, gen select / tak mall one was MEH... not definitive.

    Deathsaurus - a nice wish, but I'd rather go 3P on this one as I'm sure we'll get one ONE day, but hasbro or takara will fuck it up for sure.

    Star Saber - already have the wonderful MP , bury me with it as its beautiful but I agree it's a figure that should be made into Generations

    EDIT:
    Damn it.. I forget Grandus. Who is actually #1 choice for a Commander Class. Sure he'd be a cool titan but I doubt that would ever happen, and id rather have one similar in size to the original.
    If they did him and /or star convoy it would be sensible to actually have the playset pattern compatible with the modern micro masters. Otherwise it's like missing the point.

    They just saw a release; no way Takara is going to revisit these obscure characters anytime soon, if at all. I do think they’re potential candidates for the MP line. Even then, it could be years before we see any of the two.

    A proper G1 Optimus Prime with a proportionally sized cab, all accessories, and no shortcuts on the paint.

    Naturally, they will probably pick what fits with whatever the next theme is (or in the case of Kingdom, what the secondary theme is lol).

    I think I would firstly want that Armada Optimus to get the pick just to finally get that poor thing out. It's been so long! haha

    If I'm just talking 100% personal preference, I'd like them to make someone who only really works right at that price point - not just a premium version of someone we get a voyager/leader every 2-3 years anyway. If I was being completely selfish, I'd want something like Grandus, Galaxy Shuttle w/base, or the Thunder Arrow. But I am fully aware of the reality of those sort of things getting made.

    Alternatively, how about making even 1 Decepticon lol?

    Any vote not for Star Saber is an incorrect vote.

    My go to answer will always be Overlord because the TR one doesnt cut it for me. My second choice would be Star Saber.

    Instead of one single figure, I’d like to see a Decepticon Justice Division boxed set. Perhaps a Voyager, 2 deluxes, and a core class.

    Why do you want them to be so small? Also why only four members? You need at least five: Tarn, Kaon, Vos, Tesaurus and Helex.
