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

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. 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.

There are several and a lot of them do clearly show my bias from when I got into Transformers:
  • Optimal Optimus remake. Oh, wait, we ARE getting that one.
  • A new Beast Wars Megatron, possibly his Dragon mode which I am actually quite a fan of despite of how little screentime it got. Mind you, I don't really mean this as a new mold per se, as I'd be fine with things such as a retooled Deathsaurus or Snapdragon or some other character should said character get a new toy in some later toyline. I suspect that, beside Warden's hatred of Beast Wars, one reason this one is unlikely is that BW Megatron is more associated with his T-Rex form AND the fact he share a name with Megatron and they 'wouldn't want the dumb kiddies to be confused' or some stupid explanation like that. Unless they somehow market him as 'Decepticon Gnashteeth'. And yes I know he got a Botcon 2016 figure and that it was awesome but I don't have any chance of getting my hands on that thing, sadly.
  • Titan Class Scorponok/Zarak because clearly it ain't hapenning due to Trypticon...
  • Masterpiece Waspinator.
  • A new Landcross because he is a really unique type of Combiner which I would love to see attempted with modern engineering.
  • Dai Atlas because despite not really knowing much of Zone, him being a space drill tank tickle my super robot cliche fancy.
  • Star Convoy remake....
  • ...and a Super Megatron toy to go with it.

Huh I'm frankly shocked at how much of that list is japanese stuff. Stuff which I used to hate 5-10 years ago but as I got older (and more into oldschool mecha anime) found myself liking quite a bit more.

I'd like to see Lickety-Split get a figure of some form, even if it's just a retool of another figure. Chun-Li "hair buns" a necessity.

I know that this is mostly about licenced products but I'm sure I recently saw a 3p company going to be releasing a BW dragon Megatron :-?

just because Hastak made a boob with Trypticon(ie not having different repaint ect from the Hasbro one) I wouldn't take that as a complete ruling out of a Black Zarak

I could more see the Titans Return Overlord mold being repainted/retooled as Dai Atlas rather than Omega Supreme

If not for the fact that it seems like there are two TR boxset unaccounted for (and cancelled, right?), I could have seen Sky Shadow/Overlord done as Dai Atlas. It just seem like it won't happen, however and even if it did it would only be a recolor and a new face, meaning it would lack any kind of drill. Unfortunately.

Tidalwave would be MUCH more appropriate as a Titan than Broadside. Because in canon, he's MASSIVE.

Broadside is just a joke, caricaturing the typical disregard of scale in Transformers.

It's also probably because everything else has already been redone. Sometimes too much.

well they couldn't....could they! since both figures were coming off of the same dam mold!

the only way...if at all possible... that we're likely to see that mold(be it Tidal Wave or Broadside) on a larger scale is either by WeiJiang or bootleg(as was the case recently with the CW Rook, Streetwise, First Aid & Hot Spot figures upscaled to Leader Class size and above)

I'm definitely not talking about the nifty TR repaint. I'm talking about a oversized and improved version of the Armada original. Just imagine it. Improved articulations, tight ratchet joints everywhere, and as big as Fortmax! :x

Here's a random one for a creature presumably nobody likes: a Violen Jiger figure. Yes, seriously. He's certainly amongst the more obscure and less interesting or noteworthy villains (anything post Victory is basically a garbage bin villain anyway, I mean, the fu*beep* are Dark Nova and Valium Chugger anyway?)

That said, being a demon-skeleton-robot-insect-thing combiner would certainly make him a very unique figure.

I forgot this thread was a thing. I really want a new deluxe Cyclonus toy. I love the Universe mold, and the CW has its charm and amazing alt mode, but I want a IDW/RID hybrid designed figure. Honestly just a remold of RID Starscream would do.

And given they are preserving the combining gimmick in PoP I'd love for a Beast Wars Megatron repaint of the new Grimlock along with repaints of some CW figures or future PoP figs as members of his team (Dreadwing/Blackwing as Terrorsaur and Waspinator? Rook as Scorpinok? Groove as Tarantulas?)

I wish Botcon/Fun Pub was still a thing. Beast Wars Megatron combiner sounds perfect.

On Cyclonus, I hear good things about the RID Legions class figure. Even an upscale as a Cyber Battalion figure would be good IMO.

Yeah but I want someone to scale with the hopeful future redo on Tailgate from PoP Windcharger

hopefully they will save beast wars megatron for his own sculpt/accuracy, a cassette combiner force might be cool tho, grimlock/overkill, snarl/slugfest, swoop -retool into ratbat? or just lazy repaints for a buzzsaw/laserbeak and a repainted ravage and with a glit repaint might be nice (just for a super shiny limb if nothing else). If they want to redo magmatron that would be cool too (sadly one of the few beast war era toys I've never had)
