    Here is a hypothetical thought; what if one day Hasbro decided to make a new TFA Cyberverse line, would you be interested?

    Also what figures would you want in which class?

    I know there were some in the Universe 2008 line: Optimus Prime, BB, and Prowl; but they were mostly sold with other exclusive figures.

    If they were as well made as the Prime ones, yes definitely. I'd love a cyberverse Lockdown, and if they could pull off a cyberverse Blitzwing, I'd buy that like a shot.

    Yup I'd definitely be down. One of each character, size class depending on how they appeared in the fiction.

    I haven't picked up ether of the IDW Generation BB and Optimus Legends; but does the inclusion of the Minicon help or hurt the figure?

    And because season 4 of TFA would have had Minicons would anyone be for or against small Cyberverse Minicons similar to the IDW Legends Optimus and BB? Or should Cyberverse stay the current 2 sizes? Should a new size system be introduced?

    I would lap up any more Animated toys, so it's a definite yes from me.

    If they actually had a completed cast with all (or at least most) the Starscream clones, Constructicons and an Omega Supreme playset, then I'd probably do all I could to get all of them.

    If it didn't progress more than the mainline, I'd probably only get a few select ones.

    The only thing is, if the characters are made size accurate, we get this:

    Commanders-
    Optimus (slightly oversized and highly articulated Leigon with a jetpack)
    Bulkhead
    Ultra Magnus
    Wreck-Gar
    Grimlock
    Megatron
    Starscream (and clone repaints)
    Blitzwing
    Lugnut
    Scrapper and Mixmaster with leigon Dirt Boss
    Shockwave with highly simplified Longarm mode
    Possibly a Blackout as well

    Legion-
    Bumblebee with Cliffjumper and Waspinaot repaints
    Prowl
    Ratchet
    Blackarachnia
    Lockdown
    Soundwave (with a tiny non-transforming Laserbeak guitar)
    Swindle
    Jazz
    Sentinel Prime
    Swoop
    Snarl
    And maybe some others like Rodimus or Strika

    A LOT of characters would have to be Commander sized. The DOTM toyline had 9 Commander molds, the original PRIME line had 7, and Beast Hunters has had 5 so far, all of these numbers excluding repaints/retools.

    The list I have has TWELVE new mold commanders for the main cast, thirteen if you include Blackout (which likely wouldn't happen), so either some of them wouldn't get made, or they'd be bumped down to Legion Class.

    Absolutely, especially with what could be done with the commander class.

    Animated Legends Bumblebee is one of my favorite legend class transformers, and I'd love more done as well as he was, even though he's not all that accurate.

    It'll never, ever happen, but I'd love it.

    They weren't exclusives, and also included Starscream. Prime, Bumblebee and Starscream were excellent, but Prowl suffered from really bad shoulders and a weird alt mode.

    I'm not sure I'd all that interested in an Animated Cyberverse run. I certainly wouldn't be opposed to it, but I think I'd prefer a Beast Wars or WfC/FoC or IDW series first.

    Yup.

    I'd be curious to see how they handle Blitzwing and Shockwave's gimmicks. Chances are they'd be left out or be separate retools/molds, but I can see them attempting it. Probably wouldn't be pretty, though.

    No, give me Animated basic figures instead. Like a basic class Animated Dirt Boss for example.

    I probably would, though I'm more interested in filling out the deluxe and bigger line with TFA.

    I like you're lineup, but I would add a bunch of the BotCon Stunticons in as cool repaints and retools; the Original Optimus reepainted into Toxitron, and retooled/repainted into Motor Master. And on the Commander Optimus I would change him into the power-master mold, he doesn't need to separate into his normal mode. I would reissue the original Legends for his normal mode. Of course have all of the old legends hands retooled to hold Cyberverse weapons. DOTM had a Scorponok with Blackout, so I could see a Legend Soundwave with both Lazerbeak, Ratbat, and maybe another Minion sold as a commander. I so wish there were combiners in TFA.

    Ha, why freakin not. Dream land stuff...

    The Prime Cyberverse line has really raised the stakes for small Transformers i feel with it's complete cast, excellent accuracy, excellent scale, excellent quality. I really like having the small size but i worry other small TF lines won't have the same attention to detail.

    The first two IDW Generations legends figures, OP and Bee, are ruffly the same size. Eeek...

    Don't mind minicons as long as they are intentional/present in the show/comic.

    I already bought some TFA Legends so I would definitely be on board for some TFA Cyberverse bots.
