Anyone else want 3P to show more love to non-G1 and non-Movie stuff?

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

Anyone else want 3P to show more love to non-G1 and non-Movie stuff?

Motto: "Why is asking for a no-disassembly clay impression of a head seemingly such an extreme request?"
Weapon: Galaxial Rocket Launcher
Much of the focus of the third-party companies, whether upgrade kits, cloned-and-modified figures, or new figures... is on G1 and the movies. There have been exceptions such as MakeToys' Galaxy Meteor, Perfect Effect Mega Doragon, those Animated human character figures from way back..
But there's so much more they could do for Beast Wars, Robots in Disguise, the Unicron Trilogy, Animated, and Prime, especially in the realm of upgrade kits and replacement parts.

Where's the reproductions of missiles and weapons (especially those weapons that form part of somebody's altmode!)? Where's a show-accurate head kit for Optimus Primal? Where's reproductions of Optimal Optimus' GPS-afflicted parts? There's filler panels for the minor gaps in Generations figures, but where's filler panels for Cybertron Optimus' leg guns? Where's a DNA Design replacement leg kit for Leobreaker to turn Savage Claw Mode into what it was supposed to be? So much they could do...

So who else would like to see the third-party companies start tapping this market properly?
WANT:
HFTD Starscream clay head impression
Energon Optimus firetruck; super mode hat
Optimus Primal missiles, left back panel, mask
CW Dead End or Offroad HFG, Breakdown HFG
Armada Thundercracker missile
Armada Optimus front left trailer strut, cheekguards
ROTF Jetfire right "JTFR" Panel
BH Ult. Optimus Sword
RID Ultra Magnus missiles
Vector Prime Cyber Key
Armada Jolt, Thunderclash, Clench
RID Galvatron foot/dragon head, smol beast arms, 1x launcher/sword hilt

Motto: "'Til All Are One!"

I've said it before: I'd love to see more Animated, RiD15, and Prime figures. Mostly, though, what I'd like to see are more figures of characters that never got toy representation before. Not just "here's another continuity's Optimus Prime done better"-type of projects. I understand why those kinds of things are less likely to be made, but it's still what I'd prefer to spend my disposable income on.
