Now that we know that LEGO will be releasing the Transformers Optimus Prime (10302) it opens the possibility of Hasbro continuing the partnership with more characters. We can only speculate on what characters that we could see in LEGO form but there’s no guarantees if LEGO will make any more.
The obvious choice would be the nemesis of Optimus Prime which is Megatron. It’ll be hard for LEGO to make Megatron because his alternate form is a gun and even the G2 version is the tank, both of which LEGO will probably never make. If there is a Megatron, the most likely alternate form would be the Tyrannosaurus Rex from Beast Wars or a jet.
The next character that is possible for a LEGO Transformers set is Bumblebee. He is a proportioned Volkswagen Beetle and we know that LEGO likes making Volkswagen vehicles.
Starscream is also one of the more popular Transformers characters. His alternate form is a jet and from a playability factor, jets are cool especially with kids.
One of my favorite Transformers is Grimlock the leader of the Dinobots. He’s also a Tyrannosaurus Rex so that could conflict with Megatron if he was to come out as a dinosaur.
Other more secondary characters that would make good LEGO sets include Jetfire, Soundwave, Shockwave, Rodimus Prime (Hot Rod), an if a UCS style set would to come out, I nominate Unicron.
Again, this is only my speculation on what characters could be the next LEGO Transformers set if LEGO was to do additional ones and is no way confirming that LEGO will do more. Maybe Optimus Prime is just a one-off set but I’m holding hope. What are your thoughts on this topic? Let us know in the comments.
