Could be. But the greatest possibility is Ultra Magnus, and we have a number of things supporting such a theory.
Aligned Ultra Magnus not only has five
toys, but also appears in six
parts of the continuity's fiction (Exodus, WFC, Exiles, FoC Multiplayer, Prime cameo, and Rage of the Dinobots). He's a key character in a few of those fictions too. Not to mention his debut in Prime would give Optimus the ability to be repaired. We've seen promotional images and toys with Ultra Magnus wielding the Forge of Solus Prime, so it only makes sense that Optimus passes the matrix to him so he can turn around and build Optimus a new toy
give Optimus a new body. I can't recall where I heard this from, and it was an official statement, but the Autobots are supposed to undergo a new leadership this season. Temporary or not, Magnus is the best candidate. A side note is that the official introduction of Ultra Magnus to Prime could result in a new band of Wreckers, seeing as Magnus was/is the leader of the Aligned Wreckers and there are already two on Earth.
So, what does Ultra Magnus have? Numerous toys, multiple continuity appearances, and two reasons within the story for his introduction. Hasbro's almost shoving the character down our throat. Completely rejecting the possibility and telling us to stop making comment to the high likelihood like you are doing is bad comedy. And yet it's all speculation.
