Within the scope of the show, i think it'll be cliffjumper, or maybe jazz, Ironhide, or Magnus. As far as wishful thinking goes, minus Ironhide i'd actually like one of the Aerialbots to appear. It'd be good to have some Autobot air superiority
Actually WFC and FOC is more likely to be part of G1 than Prime.
Example 1: Body designs are more G1 related.
Example 2: Plot in the franchise
Example 3: Takara said that WFC is part of G1 in the United toyline.
WFC & FOC are part of the Aligned Continuity family with Prime. It has been confirmed by Hasbro. Takara has barely anything to contribute to the Aligned Continuity family, so you could hardly listen to anything they're saying about it and take it as gospel (unless it actually explains and fits plot holes between series, e.g how Breakdown got so bulky from WFC to Prime). Because, if you haven't been keeping up, Hasbro created the Aligned continuity, not Takara.
Body designs on robots change over time. Especially when you get Earth vehicular modes (although the Prime animators have been real cheap making Cybertronian character models for these guys). Of course they won't be similar.
The plot in the franchise is angled even more at the Aligned Continuity than G1. Have you read the novels yet?
