OK so the decorations are back in the loft, my New year's hangover has finally receded so it is time to look ahead. So without further ado here is my 'top 10' wishlist of figures which I need to complete my CHUG collection, in priority order. I have suggested existing moulds which could be used where I have thought of them. Also, what is on your wishlist?
: Trailbreaker (1984) (Deluxe sized) - my only hole in the 1984 Autobots collection. The Legends figure, while nice, just won't do. 2
: Skids (1985) - In the UK comic, Skids spent a long old time in limbo, and it seems real life is imitating art in this poor bloke's case, with no sign of an update past the Alternators figure.3
: Hoist (1985) (Deluxe sized) - C'mon HasTak, if you are going to make Trailbreaker, you may as well retool him and give us Hoist as well, crunch the numbers - it makes sense.
4-7: Slag, Snarl, Swoop, Sludge (1985) I'd be hapy with FOC representations of these even if they were deluxe-sized, because Grimlock is badass. Someone
will step up and do justice to the other 4 Dinobots if Hasbro won't.
8: Blitzwing (1985) So we get Astrotrain and Octane, but no Blitzwing, woot? again, I'm sure someone else might beat Hasbro to the punch here.
9: Sandstorm (1986) Just because I have 2 out of the 3 Autobot triple changers already, and I'm nothing if not a completist.
10: Tailgate (1986) Hasbro have a perfectly good Windcharger mould presumably gathering dust - why not make a quick buck by using it again?
YOTS Omega Supreme looks pretty great, so why not retool/redeco Energon Metroplex and Scorponok respectively to give us G1 homages instead?
Just please don't make us wait for the next
year of the snake.
