Already done: In the thread for the first announcement last weekend I suggested Hasbro take the opportunity of having them both in the same box to have the packaging and instructions consistently refer to the two collectively, the main thing I miss their Dreamwave story appearances.
As for differing decos, hope they're all the same as Takara's, but I for one would be okay with them recoloring Soundwave for accuracy to his original toy like MP Hot Rodimus, with a yellow optic band. Hell, follow up with a purple variant with Cassettes repainted into the Cobalt Sentries, Enemy, and all the background cassettes from MTMTE.
Actually, I'd seriously like to see color variants with Acid Storm: Many want the Universe camo deco, but I'd like a retina-scorching show-accurate deco, so why not put both in the same cases? That way everyone gets their pick, and completists who get both boost sales! Yes, I know there's probably some reason that's not a practical production plan. but now that we've known about Metroplex for a week, anything seems possible! Hasbro's likely moved on, but until they release a show-accurate Acid-storm, they're still technically pwned by CHMS in 1/6 of the visible-Seeker-spectrum. Just sayin'.
