Technically, they haven't announced Inferno, Cindersaur, and Outback yet.
-ZacWilliam, there are some exclusives yet to be announced but that's it. WFC starts in Jan (which means Nov/Dec)

Every figure comes with one of the War Dawn Decepticon Cube-Men. So you can stack them in neat piles and then step back and appreciate how square they are.

Where was this stated to start in Jan? I didnt see any indication POTP was not an 18-month line.
That Novastar was the single new toy in her assortment in Wave 4 should have been a clue for all of us.
I mean, I noticed, but I didn't want to accept the truth.

For a while now I've had the thought that I'd love to see a line using Animated-style engineering to make Cybertronian modes out of Dery models. Ideally models that we've never seen Cybertronian modes for. That way the robot modes can be as close to having stepped off the screen as possible without Masterpiece-level fiddliness, since the alt-modes could be anything that flows naturally from them.

Here we go. From Ben Yee reporting from the Hasbro panel:
"(They) Want to tell the story of the war on Cybertron before they came to Earth. NOT based on the video games. #HasbroToyFair #NYTF #Transformers"
-ZacWilliam, so that seems pretty clear
I've been thinking on how to elaborate on why I'm so tepid on this, and I think it's that this story's just been told. So many times. With little variation.
Even IDW failed to really add much to it, it just expanded on stuff Aligned laid the seeds for.
This is the least necessary TF story to explore, save for anything involving Unicron and the events of TFTM.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.
The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

As a kid I always wanted to see more of their Cybertronian modes so the occasional episode there they went to Cybertron were my among favorites, but over the years I got stuff like Cybertron/GF Starscream and the WfC and FoC games and toys satisfied that very well.
I do hope they make Ironhide in his game and RiD15 body, always wanted a toy of that.
And it crossed my mind that I hope they still use the Colony worlds.

In this interview, the Hasbro team talks about how they want to take the next trilogy in a different design direction, and there's stuff about bridging the gap between the aesthetics that different areas of the world enjoy.
Which sounds to me like WFC2-or-whatever might be a little movie-y, who knows.

Additionally, they talk about how the next Fan Choice two-sets couldn't possibly be redecos/retools of any Prime Wars toys for reasons that will be obvious to us once we know more about the next toyline.

The reference to "'gritty' [ugh] realism" and less toyetic designs than Power of the Primes is actually pretty good news. Wonder whether that's going to mean something more like what Studio Series looks like on the shelf.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?
