That's yet to be seen, they haven't been on shelves very long, so who knows how they'll sell.
For the life of me I still don't understand why we haven't seen anymore G1-esque sets like Soundwave w/minions, Shockwave, Thundercracker/Skywarp (Starscream repaints of course), and of course some Dinobots.
If I had to guess, I'd say it was because the first wave of them completely bombed. Although the Quest for Energon sets seemed to have sold pretty well. The why, I suspect, is because the Quest for Energon sets largely focused on current characters. Knock Out with Wheeljack, the obligatory Bumblebee set, the very
awesome Optimus vs. Megatron set, and even those nice little sets with three generikreons vs. a named character kreon (though I did see some Barricade sets on clearance, I never really saw the CJ set).
Focusing on TF Prime really wasn't the way to go- especially without any potentially cool sets like maybe an Arcee, Bulkhead, or Dreadwing.
The apparent sales of the QfE sets would seem to disagree with you. I would wager that the Beast Hunter sets will probably do well, too, for the reason I've already said.
All this to say if they ever did make a Kreo Cybertron set that was in scale with Kreons that would be amazing. Imagine a Death Star-sized Cybertron to interact with the Kreo Enterprise and Kreo GI Joes. It'd be SWEET!
Agreed, that would be quite awesome.
