What kinda stuff did you have in mind?
It's been suggested that I do some limbs that don't have all the "lego pegs" all over them in order to go for a cooler looking action figure... Ariel Lemon (fakebusker83) suggested that these could easily be worked into drone limbs for devistator or the other upcoming combiners ala PPC style...
I've also been thinking about a torso upgrade to give these figures more bulk in the middle.
Since you ask...
I wouldn't remove the "lego pegs." For me, the customizable nature of these toys is a key selling point. The pegs would let people modify them however they see fit...and preserves the nature of a building toy. My vote is to keep the lego pegs.
You could have two versions, one with pegs and one without, but I would buy the one with pegs if I was going to buy one.
I'd be curious to see your torso designs. Even if you didn't make full-fledged torsos, it would be kinda cool to make little torso vests that evoke characters that Hasbro hasn't made yet.
Now, as for parts I'd like to see made...
I'd love someone to make helmets for characters that Hasbro hasn't released like Sunstreaker, Hoist, Skids, Frenzy and Rumble, etc...or more accurate ones for figures already out there like Megatron and Galvatron.
Other items would be a G1-Huffer "hood" or a cab that would hang over his head. A blocky G1-Gears helment. (I have a hankering to finish a G1 collection, in case it wasn't too obvious). A jetpack for Sideswipe. A shoulder cannon for Soundwave.
