Once I get Golden Lagoon Optimus I'll have every one of these except the elusive Green BAPE. I couldn't imagine doing it again! Would be worse than having to rebuy all the seekers once the inevitable V3 Starscream is announced!
Maybe what they could do is do variants on the previous niche repaints.
Paint it in silver instead of gold and you have Hate-Plague Protected Optimus Prime.
MP10-version Ultra Magnus hasn't been done, so why not replace Black/Nemesis Prime with white/Best Friends Forever Optimus Prime! Or alternately, make it all black.
Instead of 7-11 Optimus Prime, they could do a Family Mart one instead.
BAPE has been done, so maybe Angelic Pretty next time.
Instead of Evangelion deco Prime, Death Note Prime. Or better yet, combine 2 renowned unpleasant fanbases and make it Love Live! Prime.

I suppose technically 7-11 Prime isn't Ultra Magnus but it's going to be the closest we'll get.

I agree with the cross-over stuff. Evangelion and Street Fighter was funny, not my jam but it was cool to see.

It comes down to personal preference. I prefer soft plastic myself. The silicone type but I've heard it gets hard over time so needs replacing. It's not as heavy as die cast but around the 600cc a piece is about right. Now, the purest say silicone doesn't have the same feel as the real thing but that's a highly inflated opinion. I admit that I can't tell the difference by looking at it. Glad I got that off my chest.

Takara
Hasbro
Nemesis
Ultra Magnus
Shattered Glass
YotH (unlikely)
Evangelion
Various BAPE
Golden Lagoon (unlikely)

Any I miss?
I wouldn't mind a Lucky Draw inspired Crayola Convoy as a 1st reissue of this new mould.
