One guess as to what this could be is this:

With the caveat that since he's supposedly based on Mutant Soundwave, the Skullsmasher body also belongs to the possibilities. Maybe it'll have both?

Any off chance this is more Mini-bot Go-Bots? Or is the last page after that final TFCC story one last middle finger from Gobotron?

This and that are two separate things. The GoBots in that TCC story (well, five of them) are in the toy bodies of the old 2004 e-HOBBY G1 GoBots set, and that story is just continuing an ongoing tale of theirs that started (and went on hiatus) way back in 2008.

Not sure what you mean by "middle finger", though. The GoBots are trying to save Gobotron and the Classics Autobots are willing to help them.

But whatever this second TF project by e-HOBBY is, I'm betting it's another Beast Wars anniversary thing.

Promoting another Beast Wars figure with a big Autobot symbol would be a weird thing to do. I feel like this is going to be an extended line like Cloud rather than the next BW figure or another single like Grand Scourge and Deadlock.

Cloud consisted mostly of molds initially skipped by TakaraTomy:

- GDO Megatron
- GDO Brawn
- Generations Doubledealer
- Generations Roadbuster (released in retail sightly later)
- Generations Whirl (released in retail slightly later)

Think we could expect the same?

I don't know what they will do but I know what I'd like them to do.

1) Mega Alligator (with a different head)
2) Fire Guts Super Ginrai (though they might want to wait for Takara to make the full trailer so they can do Fire Guts God Ginrai)
3) Twincast
4) Soundblaster

I'm not that bothered about a Brown-Wave

---

Unfortunately the sort of things that would excite me wouldn't interest them that would be things like.

5) Galaxy Force Fang Wolf [Cybertron Snarl] (from Weird Wolf)
5a) or Dark Fang Wolf.

It might be to early to see something like :
6) Fly Wheels from (Megatron/Blitwing)

7) There is always a chance they could do some modern version of the e-hobby Insecticon clones again with the new moulds.

8) I expect eventually someone is going to do Optimus/Octane as Scourge/Black Convoy it's just a matter of time and who gets to it first.

9) I'd not mind to much a painted camo Green or purple Voyager Megatron either. The cool thing about a purple one is you can then use it as Archforce too.

Ideally I'd like a Tigatron and Airazor set. Airazor remolded from Mindwipe/Wipe and Tigatron remolded from Weirdwolf/Wolfwire.

But e-HOBBY exclusives are always redecos of preexisting molds and tooling. No newly-made remolds.

Fire Guts Super Ginrai seems inevitable - or Fire Guts God Ginrai if they wait until the Takara Trailer comes out.

We now know that the recently teased e-hobby figure is none other than Legends Magna Convoy. For those who do not know, Magna Convoy was a blue redeco of the Armada Optimus Prime cab, who's super mode was red and blue, which was itself an homage to the diaclone blue Optimus cab. This toy homages the blue cab component and is a blue recolor of Henkei OP, with recolor of Alpha Trion's sword and Mindwipe's shield.
It will be available for preorder from E-Hobby for ¥7,000, which is around $60-65 USD. E-Hobby will be the only place to get it at this price since it is an exclusive. It will be available from other online retailers at the usual markup.

Surprised that mold is still usable.

I... don't get it. Why the sword and mindwipe weapon?

to justify the use of a 11 year old toy perhaps?

It's Classics Prime; he's freakin' awesome! He's the last thing you need to justify.

Though talking of freakin' awesome, while I don't get it, I DO love that he comes with that sword. It looks so great.
Mindwipe weapon though, ehhh... okay then...

Can anyone explain the relation between this toy and the cab component of Delta magnus (if there is one) please?

Pretty sure this is a Powered Convoy homage, not Magna Convoy...
