Vector Prime would have been nice to have at some point again - but I don't feel he needed to be a Combiner or a Triplechanger - the images they show are VERY different to the Cybertron Vector Prime (who is supposed to be the same guy) so perhaps the best thing to do is stick with him - he's still a terrific toy in any of the colours or versions.

One thing that I noticed which is slightly having me scratch my head is the colours they chose for the sparks ( visible on the Optimus Primal Poster seen at SDCC) it seems like they didn't 100% match the colours with the shells you'd expect for example wouldn't it make sense to put Quintus Prime with Octopunch ? (or is that just me) - why is Leige Maximo Purple - wasn't her actually green originally ?.

For example there is a nice Purple one and it's not Alpha Trion.
Speaking of which how are they going to explain that he's in Titan's Returns as a full robot - kill him off Star Wars style ?

---

People are right to point out that you can't get much more obscure than the Japanese Headmasters or using a Battlebeast as a Titanmaster either.

But the clones are acceptable as they were in an actual cartoon episode and a Western one at that.

-----

As for what might have been nice to have in TR wave 6 - how about a Punch/Counterpunch that came with 2 heads.

I'm a little frustrated they didn't engineer Grotusque or Fangry for the last wave though or cram a full body Nightbeat or a Deluxe Cyclonus in there.

I hope they have realised the usefulness and sales potential of a Combiner Wars compatible Sweep though. as well as the sales potential of Hasbro Asia style boxed sets.

The same way they explained Optimus Prime going from a Combiner torso to a Powermaster to whatever he is in POTP: by not saying anything.

That transforming Bumblebee display is downright awesome. I kind of want to have something like that one day for a Rodimus but I don't think I'll ever have that sort of disposable income :lol:

I had half a thought to the fiction be it some sort of comic tie in - the story told in parts included with the toys or if they ever make one of those comedy webseries for the 3rd line.

It might be nice if they showed Alpha Trion making some big sacrifice in the 2nd webseries so if they decide to make a 3rd on they have the set up.

I think they miss-stepped though with the marketing of Prime Wars as there is an almost complete disconnect with the fiction and the products ; the the same extent there was with Beast Hunters.

I'm going to be 100% head-canon on this one I suspect as I wouldn't be surprised if what IDW comes up with would be pretty halfhearted the 2nd webseries is kinda pointless - if it's advertising a dead toyline and personally I'd rather do what I want to do with the toys and use my "Imagination" and not be hogtied into faithfully following some marketing execs or indifferent comic writer's fanfiction.

Considering how poorly paid people are in the comics industry these days that they can even produce the product with the pages glued in the correct order seems like a minor miracle to me. But I certainly don't want to be hanging an entire franchise on something one step up from cereal box comics in terms of the investment the person writing it is going to have.

Maybe i'm being overly judgemental but it seems pretty clear that IDW is way more interested in sowing it's own seeds than it is working on Hasbro's farm.

Is Alpha Trion even going to be in the web series? His name wasn't included in the voice cast list.
