Come to think of it, wouldn't say no to a Nova Prime redeco/retool of the Galaxy Prime mold.
Or a multipack of Battle Masters and fireblast parts in colors we haven't yet gotten, that also debuts new single-barrel weapons for Firedrive and Blowpipe/Aimless (central single barrels, not the big and little barrel pairing) that can be used in later redecos. A ten-pack, like the Micromaster one! Ricochet's Nightstick/Nebulon, Spoilsport, Peacemaker, Pinpointer, Pteraxadon as Sights, Chro, or Rav, Smashdown in white and gold, the Double Targetmasters...
(Might be nice to get a Droid-type Battle Master at some point that can be done up as Push-Button and Fistfight, but seems like we've moved on to bridges already).
expect demand we'll see in WFC3?
Voyager-sized Rodimus Prime and Galvatron. TR Galvatron can fill in in a pinch, and PotP Rodimus will always have a place in my collection. But I really want a solid version of these guys that can stand alongside a matching Optimus and Megatron and not feel out of place. That's something I've been wanting since 1986.
You would think with how they copied-ished the MP mold for Siege/ER Optimus, they could do the same with the MP Rodimus mold and design a good Voyager/Leader class figure from that.
Since my initial reply I've been thinking about a Rodimus that's basically Hot Rod with a Weaponizer/Modulator style "trailer".
The POTP base robot is a decent place to start, with just some proportion issues. Hot Rod's transformation is fairly simple as well, especially if you strip away the need to hide an Evolution robot head and turn into a torso.
Hot Rod's can basically expand into Rodimus, with some arm, torso and leg extensions/repositioning joints to make him a bit taller, with a swappable face and maybe a slide-out expanding spoiler. The passable similarity in looks -- versus way more visually-distinct ones like white-cab vs armored-up Magnus -- is really his design advantage, keeping parts needs minimal. The colors would be the same for both, as a tradeoff, but I'd be fine with that.
To convert to the Winnebago cab, the Hot Rod vehicle mode could have the windshield and spoiler fold/slide forward a bit to hide the engine and end up further forward on the roof, respectively, then just cover the rest with the trailer half (with better side pipes integration, PLEASE, that was so frustrating with POTP that all this time later I'm still looking for a way to fix it).
Trailer could pull apart into chunks/panels and guns and reassemble into a battle station mode-shaped shell. Or accommodate some ramps, or armor up the base Rodimus (or anyone) as these parts tend to do.
(And then do a Unicronus redeco so I can have a base for things like Black Hot Rod, Black Rodimus, Shattered Glass Rodimus, etc like I did with the POTP one.)
I really want to believe it's doable.
