true I hadn't considered the altmode or deployer gimmick

Plus, he's roughly the same height as Starscream.

Perhaps they could make an Ultra class like they did in Cybertron, which is between Voyager and Leader?

Er, maybe. Ultra class seems to be going out of style lately, with the focus being mostly on Deluxe/Voyager/Leader with some Scouts and Legends here and there.

personally I think the Legends class are a waste of time. I dont know what everybody else's opinion is, but I think they're annoying

Why would Arcee be a scout class? They had Arcee in ROTF line and she was Deluxe. She could be like Black Arachnia was in Animated. Smaller but still Deluxe. I am hoping she isn't scout as that will just have a very basic transformation and I can't see any of them getting justice if they are scout class... :cry:

Well, the reaosn I want Arcee to be either a Scout or a small Deluxe is because:
A) she is the smallest Autobot, and
B) I want her motorcycle altmode to as closest to being in scale with the other character altmodes as possible.

With all the Deluxe motorcycles out there, they wind up being huge in altmode compared to their automobile comrades. I get that she's a slight size-changer, but if there's going to be a toy of her, it should at least try to be as consistent to her show appearance in BOTH modes as possible. Make her altmode small enough, but make her Robot Mode still be tall enough to interact with the bigger bots.

I get what you are saying. But wouldn't you rather have a more accurate to Animation model toy version then size accuracy? I know size of the toy would be an issue but I rather have her be a deluxe (or small deluxe) then a scout. Scouts just have such basic transformations I can't see her being a scout AND being close to the animation model. Course if they do two versions then we could have both. :D

That is an interesting question for you though. What would you rather have if given a choice?

1) Deluxe Class:

Pros: Very close to Animation Model. Intermediate Transformation.
Cons: Larger Bike mode that is not in size with the other characters.

2) Scout Class:

Pros: Size accuracy to other characters.
Cons: Basic Transformation. Not at all close to the Animation Model.

I would rather choose 1. But that is me. :)

BOTH! I want show and size-accuracy together. 8-)

Not quite true. Some of the more recent new mold Scouts have had some decently intricate transformations. The Brimstone/Chopsaw mold, for example.

Hey gang, We have been invited to a special Hasbro Q&A Bonus round; this time with the teams at The Hub and Hasbro Studios, to ask our ONE burning question relating to TF: Prime. Remember, this question is not being submitted to the Hasbro toy group, so only show related questions this time. We'll have to keep our laundry list of TF: Prime toy line related questions for later. So, what's your one burning question? We've got 24 hours to submit a question, so, "put your thinking cap on" and let the suggestions begin.
