I would love to see Hasbro announce Devastator. That would suck so bad for TFC and Maketoys.

No way man! I'd find a way to buy them all. Devastator has always been a favorite of mine. :grin: I'd love for them to make one.

Surprisingly enough, the RotF Hoist is a pretty good approximation of G1 Hoist. His head is very close to the G1 version and his transformation isn't overly complicated like a lot of the movie toys.

Did they ever do a Generations Cliffjumper? I'd love to see another non-Bumblebee repaint/retool Cliffjumper in the future.

Mirage and Hound have Classic figures.



Yes - but classics Mirage really looks tooo weird. I want a new mirage! I didn't realize about Hound, but would still love a re-release (with a darker green). Would mind seeing Prowl or Bluestreak re-released too.

I don't mean to sound impertinent but have you ever handled the figure or just seen it? It does look a little strange but when you actually get your hands on it it's an excellent figure, especially the Takara Electrodisruptor repaint.

Yeah, Mirage is awesome. And Hound is great, too. I'd prefer not to see figures already released get new molds. I want figures without Classic releases or exclusives given general release.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I don't even know if I could think of 40 I would want. Well, I guess I'll have to make my list and see.

From BW Season 1: Rhinox, Black Arachnia, Rattrap

G1 Inspired: Arcee, Galvatron, Blitzwing, Ultra Magnus, Springer, Shockwave, Devastator

WFC/FOC: Arcee, Ratchet, Starscream, Grimlock, Slipstream,

General: Computron, Abominus

So...that's 30. That's actually closer to 40 than I thought I would get. Combiners certainly do eat up a good amount of numbers though.

Both figures are excellent representaions of there character i dont have mirage myself yet but i have Dragstrip and Fracture and that mould is perfect imo
I have hound and he also is a perfect mould i got some reprolables for him they look fantastic.

I almost put down WFC/FOC Rodimus(Hot Shot) even though he only appeared in the DS version. A Galvatron toy from that game aesthetic would be really nice.

If they did make a Galvatron i hope they just retool wfc megatron quite a bit, my only issue is size it seems foc figures are getting smaller with shockwave smaller than wfc megs a shorter galvatron than the one we have is the last thing we need.

im not sure if 2.0 galvatron is shorter than megs i dont Gtron transformed to compare but i imagin him to be a tad smaller, so just for the sake of being taller than the 2.0 Gtron I would be happy with a retool wfc megs.

I just had a mental image of Animated Blitzwing done up as Overlord.

40 Bumblebees! 'cause we don't have enough 'bee repaints or variations...
On a serious note, all things considered (remember folks, Hasbro will try and milk a mold for as much as it can) I think we'll end up with 15+ repaints from the United, RTS and WFC ranges. I would love to see a Trailbreaker (he was my first TF *sigh*) and more combiners. Real G1 inspired combiners, not this Powercore Combiner crap. I can never understand why some 3rd party companies can do it, yet Hasbro can't or don't want to.

Motto: "They never saw it coming."
Weapon: Slingshot
I'd like to second (or 3rd or 1 millionth) doing up the Stunticons. I was in love with those guys the minute they were introduced. Most can be done with existing molds, albeit non-combining. Dragstrip (which was already released under the Mirage mold). Wildrider can easily be done with the Drift mold (but give him Blurr's guns). Breakdown, obviously with the Sunstreaker/sideswipe mold. Last but not least, Dead End with Jazz's mold. Motormaster deserves a new mold (perhaps Leader or Voyager class?).

Aerialbots - new molds, combining - not another Energon set, please!

Protectobots

Omega Supreme? Guardians? Too ambitious?

Hoist and Trailbreaker - same mold

Brawn and Outback - same mold

Gears and Swerve - same mold

Pipes and Huffer - same mold (I wouldn't even mind if there was no alternate transformation for Pipes).


All new dinobots. I honestly didn't care for Classics Grimlock that much, but I bought him all the same.

I liked the idea someone had about the target masters and power masters. I thought maybe Needlenose could be do-able and maybe the Autobot cement mixer (I don't remember his name - Quickmix, maybe?).

That's over 30. I'm starting to draw a blank. It should be plenty to ponder though. Just remember; when in doubt, seekers seerkers seekers!

This Galvatron is a part of the Universe toyline from 2008, used mostly as a successor to the Classics toyline (also putting in toys that didn't fit in a main toyline. Animated figures were included in the Universe toyline). And the Classics toyline's main purpose was to revisit Original G1 Characters. If you are saying that this Galvatron is inspired on some other incardination, you don't know what you are talking about.

To inspire a character off of a G1 incardination doesn't mean you have to copy every detail about it. Hell, most WFC characters are inspired by their G1 incardinations, yet they are from a completely different continuity.

Yes, this Galvatron is inspired by his G1 counterpart. If you can't see the similarties between this toy and his G1 animation model, even if these similarities are limited, why not?

One of the few things this toy did not get inspired by was his original alternate mode. If you were talking about a different size class for this character (or the bolded characters in my quote), I wouldn't object to having Hasbro re-release that Character. But to my knowledge, Hasbro hasn't released a character, whilst beholding the same size class, in the Classics/Universe/Generations/RTS line. Even if they did, the best they'd do is repaint it (like Bumblebee, Cyclonus, Rodimus, etc.).

Please be more specific when you say you want G1-inspired toys. Thanks :D

I mean more in reference to the G1 toy than the G1 character. Maybe inspired is the wrong word, but who cares, this is just for fun.

Oh, you edited your post.

Yea, I want to see original molds of those characters, not repaints.

I want decent sized Deluxes that don't have transparent plastic and don't look like crap plus the First Edition TF:Prime toyline.

I doubt there is any chance of that though.
