The TF you want but you know Hasbro will NEVER make... ;_;

Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

Just remember there's something of a science to getting hold of Botcon toys on ebay. During the con start watching every auction on items you're interested in. Don't bid on lots for the first week or two, prices will initially be artificially high as everybody scrambles for the same figs. What you are watching for is prices starting to level off and find their own level. There's generally then a two week window where there are still a relatively large number of figures being listed but the demand is no longer quite so high and the folks who were dropping silly money have got themselves sorted and are thusly out of the game. About a month after the con supply really drops off and demand becomes the enemy again, prices will start to steadily rise again and deals will then be a lot harder to come by. 2-4 weeks after the con is the golden number.

I would absolutely love a Masterpiece Dinobot. Throw in the golden disks and maybe a non-transforming Rattrap for him to ride on and they could have all my money.

I think a few of the old japanese villains would be cool with the masterpiece treatment.

A masterpiece liokaiser, with small masterpiece size components and detailed chest transformations.

A masterpiece deszaras.

a masterpiece BWII galvatron would probably be pretty sweet too, I like his aesthetics.

and finish out at least sludge and slag for the mps, too. Grimlock turned out really well.

Masterpiece Star Convoy and Super Megatron, both with excellent articulation. I'd be willing to compromise with them on a Masterpiece Super Ginrai.

For that matter, it would be nice to see some Leader Class-sized 'bots intended to go with Cyberverse. You could work Star Convoy and Super Megs into that range, along with new versions of Star Saber, Victory Leo, Metroplex and Trypticon....

The rest of the Autobot cars as WSTs. (Do you notice a theme here?)

Motto: "SHEEAGH!"
Someone much earlier in thread made the comment of a new combiner set for Monstructor. I'd love to see a six piece scout release with hawt combination action in the Generations/Whatev line for Monstructor. The original toys weren't all that big so a scout release would make the most sense in terms of scale. Since the toys aren't much bigger than the PCC line, such a release may be the most feasible way to pass the wonky QA stuff NA toys have to go through.

I recently combined my G1 Monstructor one last time after the painstaking removal of his two GPS candidates from their Pretender shells. Every creak of plastic made me wince, but I was able to combine him without damage. This has lead to a desire for a toy I can freaking touch without worry, Hasbro. Do Eet.

Random thought of the day:

Leader class Knock Out :lol: The guy is so full of himself it would be rather fitting, but really I just love his character... though a leader class wouldn't be as fun if Adam Baldwin or someone with a similarly charming voice didn't do the vocals. Kind like how Cullen's voice (or at least someone who sounds like him) caught me for the Leader and Ultimate toys I have for Prime :3

Always a little sad when the voice you know and recognize isn't used for the toys :( Cost more, I'm sure, but it just makes the toy 100x better for me xP


Knock Out and Ratchet (if deco'd nicely cause that deluxe version is rather unimpressive) would be the only Leader figures I'd be interested in for the Prime line, but they'll never get made T_T

Transformers Prime FE Cliffjumper. If Hasbro could make these that would be great. :P

I know its Takara who produce the MP figs and not Hasbro but my dream TFs would be the remaining four dinobots in MP scale. Imagine it people. But now they are rehashing already done characters it looks unlikely.

Weapon: Sword of Fury
Generations/Reveal the Shield/Universe/Classics Liokaisar, each component a deluxe with a Minicon sized breast animal. Retail price the same as a voyager for the extra engineering and the companion figure.


(Prime Soundwave comes so close!)

Yes on Star Convoy and Super Ginrai! those two are some of my favorite Japanese Optimie. (Though I say that about almost every Japanese Optimus :P )

Actually Knock Out's voiced by Daran Norris (Same dude who did RID Heavyload and Dad from Fairly Oddparents believe it or not!), Baldwin's the dude who does Breakdown's voice. :-B

Looking for:
Actionmaster Prime's Armored Convoy, just the cab and trailer with it's smokestacks, add in anything else if you want <=D.
ROTF Skystalker's right wing piece (Left axe)and Star Convoy(Encore).

A Generations/Classics revision of Blitzwing. Hell, do all of the triple-changers. The only proper Blitzwing toy was the G1 figure, and they haven't done another since! (Animated doesn't count, in my opinion.)

I'd also like to see a G/C redo of the Insecticons, including the large G1 figures. Those FansProject ninja ones are amazing, but currently out of my price range...

You know, Hasbro should just officially license the third-party figures for distribution to retailers.

Nightbird.The robot ninja from the classic G1 episode Enter The Nightbird. Although I think she was once offered as a BotCon Exclusive awhile back. But I'd snap a figure up faster than sushi through a sumo if I spotted one on the store shelves.

Oh yeah! Funny thing, my friend was just saying to me the other night how he'd like a Nightbird figure. After seeing your post, I looked around a little, and found these:

A Metal Hawk from Prime Starscream. He is thin enough to invoke the new NAIL version but with a new head he could be really pefect.

Instant idea: They should've repainted SG Magnus in a RID Scourge deco. It would give the hungry fans their deepest desire and give us a SG Magnus

Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

Thank you.

PS: I also need a spare set of smokestacks for Armada Supercon Optimus Prime, AKA Bendy Prime.
