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.

A bit of a shame though. I loved that line despite the occasional stinker.

Also, Alternators was all about "normal" road vehicles, meaning cars, Jeeps, and pick-ups as the biggest. Making a genuine truck even more of a "never make" Transformers!

I imagine the rest of the combaticons could have been made, but they would have to be reimagined as standard road vehicles. This make the line more interesting to me because it force creativity.
Eh.. Forced creativity can lead to interesting things (like the movie designs) but it also can get "meh". Especially when you have the ugly combo of forced creativity and "No fun allowed".

By "original content" do you mean Unicron Trilogy molds and select CHUG molds getting redecoed as oversize versions Micromasters and occasional as other characters, with new heads if they're lucky? :P
We kinda still have that. All the random redeco Autobots from Combiner Wars (as well as that laughable Armada Megs).. Titans Return PMOP, Krok, Quake, making Black Shadow and Overlord moldmates, and Tidal Wave (AKA Oversize Flattop to go with Universe Dropshot et al), turning Elita into a jet as Starscream's moldmate in PotP, the movieverse-inspired SIEGE Barricade, SIEGE Magnus and Galaxy Upgrade Optimus...
Fasttrack turning into a spear isn't the same thing, but I'd certainly call that creative. Same for reinventing Cog as a weaponizer. And giving Brunt a robot mode.

No no no no. You got it all wrong. It's not about "Cybertron repaints at all. CHUG is not the 2007 Movie line.

If you remember classic CHUG, most had their relatively classic robot designs, but many had new original vehicles. Some were combiners that no longer combined but with an original vehicle like that amazing Universe Onslaught. Other were minibots supersized to ultra class (modern leader) with an updated vehicle mode. Some had space vehicles or were just tools in G1 but they got Earth vehicle modes in Classics and old Generations. Those old bot's were then reinvented completely.

So I want more of that.

But this time, we could go a step further. What if the Transformers woke up in 1919 instead of 1984? They would had to take forms of the time, with the vehicles that go with it and the bots would be redesigned to fit.

I do remember Classic CHUG, as it happens. Classic CHUG also had a lot of what I said: Unicron Trilogy redecoes and redecoes of some of its own molds, as nominal updates of Micromasters and other characters, with new heads if they were lucky. Here, enjoy the parade:

I don't want more of it, at least not a lot more of it (in CHUG, at any rate; New series' are another matter, that's what they're for). I'm kinda annoyed at a lot of what we got of it, because A. I was interested in those characters because of the G1 cartoon, so having these less-representative or non-representative versions - this applies to both the reimaginings and some of the redecoes - was not exactly appealing (a major reason I mostly collected G1 instead of CHUG up until coming across Titans Return Hot Rod in a store) and B. I found a lot of the modernized altmodes aesthetically inferior to the classic ones. I did develop a tolerance for that much (in some cases) after getting into TR since that increased my desire for versions in a modern scale.
Speaking of scale, that's something else that put me off about some of the pre-Prime Wars CHUG stuff (Bumblebee is too big IMO, the Classics Seeker mold is a size class too small..)

A few further thoughts:
* Some of the reimagined figures just put me completely off (Classics Megatron, Universe Galvatron, Sunstreaker, Silverbolt, Ironhide, and Generations Scourge for example)
* Others I was willing to put up with particularly after getting TR Hot Rod) but still bugged me I was particularly bothered by the modernized aesthetics, altmodes, and/or Alternators-esque transformations of the Universe Sideswipe and Prowl molds, Classics Hot Rod, and Classics Voyager Optimus (who CW Optimus and both main WFC Optimus toys have since erased any desire I had for). Hound and Mirage bothered me a lot less, although both have since been upstaged in my collection by their SIEGE version(My like for SIEGE Mirage's looks and proportions in both modes is strong enough for the changed transformation to not bother me). Wheeljack and Jazz don't bother me at all. Tracks I'm mostly good with too, only thing I'm bothered by is the inferior flight mode.
* I tend to be bit more lenient re: Decepticon purchases than I am with Autobots, just for the sake of bulking up the Decepticons' ranks.
* The IDW aesthetic of a lot of Thrilling 30-era Generations was also offputting to me, although I'm prepared to tolerate it for Skids and Crosscut.

I think a lot of modern cars look meh compared to the ones modeled by the G1 cast, so I wouldn't be excited for that in CHUG at all.
A new series, on the other hand... That would be something.

Well, if HasTak keep it up with the G1 pandering, I want them to FULLY COMMIT.
I want proper modernized Pretenders and bring on the weird and obscure characters that were mostly ignored. They did a few already but it's not enough. I'm just tired of the classic cast being made over and over and over.

There is that. I've been okay with most of the re-dos on the grounds of "Try until you get it right". But as characters hit that point, it would be nice for others to get a turn. And if there is a perceived demand for the characters who have already been done right, HasTak can just do a bloody rerelease instead of wasting resources remaking them.

Speaking of re-releases, They are now starting to "bleed" the some tail-end toys of an old line in the first wave of the newest one. Like they did with Siege Astrotrain in Earthrise. I find this a BRILLIANT idea because too often those toys get ignored by stores who still have the old line to clear out so they won't order new stuff from the old line but would still order from the newest.

So I want Hasbro to do it for the latest Micromasters cassettes pack, Rumble/Ratbat and maybe some other things as well. Also, re-releasing old molds with a superior paint job of formerly poorly painted ones, like for Studio Series KSI Boss and ROTF Megatron as REGULAR releases, is always brilliant in my book.

I don't think the bleed over was the intent, as I think Astrotrain was always meant for Earthrise, and was instead brought forward for the additional Siege wave, same as Rung. Though we'll see if its true or not if the same thing happens with part 3

So if Astrotrain was really an Earthrise figure that bled back into Siege, it mean I was damn lucky. I found only one Siege Astrotrain and because it was a Siege leader, he was on "secret" clearance at 39$CAN (around 28$US)! I wasn't planning to buy him but that price was just too good to pass up.

Speaking of Astrotrain, 3P companies made him as a "Masterpiece" 2 or 3 times already. But will Takara ever try to make it? Possibilities are high because he's the most popular of all the triple changers.

I wouldn't say never with Takara doing an MP but given they've done Hot Rod, UM and now Arcee, I reckon Springer will be along soon enough. To have a peek at their design folder to see what is in the pipeline.

Having sat on my thoughts for a bit, I suppose I'd be okay with reinventions of the characters who have finally been done right. Including doing a Pretender Optimus Prime if that's what it takes to get the ball rolling on upgrades to the Pretenders (I still favor the idea of "Inner robot at same size as everybody else, with a Headmaster whose robot mode is the inner robot in miniature, and a PotP-style Decoy Armor for the head to wear as a pretender shell; meanwhile, fully-articulated action figure versions of the shells could be a spinoff line).

Here are some little things I'd like but I'm pretty sure we'd never see:
* Titan Master Outback (retooled from TR TM Brawn because duh)
* Titan Master Wingthing (retooled from TR Fangry)

Somewhat less unlikely though still improbable:
* Premium PotP Grimlock, with the tabs beefed up to eliminate the issues some people (such as Rodimus and Stargrave) have had with him holding together, and his dino arms, tailtip halves, robot chest, and Volcanicus' horns all chromed up.

Yes, a thousand times yes to the last suggestion. I remember geeking out when I saw symmetrical docking with Animated Jetfire and Jet Storm... I even hummed the theme when I combined them! :lol: out of those you listed though I would say God Magnus got the most development (though as Victory Leo is God Ginrai reborn, someone could argue him but it is a downgrade isn't it, protagonist to power up)

Speaking of Wing Saber, Energon Optimus and Wing Saber are long overdue for an update. A commander Class box set made out of two "voyagers" would be nice, unless they release Optimus as a leader with trailer and drones, and Wing Saber as a voyager class Weaponmaster who could combine with basically anyone from the Siege/Earthrise Generation.

Well, technically Energon Optimus got an update, in the form of the Optimus Maximus/Convoy Grand Prime combo... Not much of one, and it was especially half-assed on the Hasbro end.

My worry is that even a more focused Generations update of Energon Optimus and Wing Saber would end up a downgrade. Yes, even with the faults of the originals...

Here's something I would consider cool but find reeeeally unlikely:
Double Punch using the Earthrise Scorponok mold.

That's even less likely than Phreaker and Signal Lancer getting official toys.

That United Warrior box set was just an hommage though.
And based on the latest Cybertron Optimus "update", yes, that was indeed a downgrade.

But there is one thing in common with both of these releases. They were only repaints/remolds of some other toys. Thus they could only be "hommages" while never coming close to the originals. If they had their own designs and molds, they could have been awesome.

Armada Optimus is coming soon. Let's see how this one will turn out.

I didn't care for the art of the Star Trek vs. Transformers crossover, but any new alt modes for these two are always welcome!

I didn't knew those were a thing!

Also, Star Trek ships already have "arms" so pulling a bit out of them is not a big stretch.

Only if they include a different head to do a Prowlastator.


And make a new mold for Hook to serve as a leg.

... what? Go long or go home. :oops:

What I miss in current robot toy lines is the Brave-style leader combinations, represented in TF by God Ginrai, Victory Saber and God Fire Convoy. I wouldn't mind seeing that return, especially with some proper character development for the one being pulled apart for the add-ons. :lol:

Heck yes to everything. Leg Hook, Prowlvastator head, and a new Victory Saber. God Fire Convoy is RID'01 Optimus and Magnus, right?

*Note: the Bot image is a different cover, but could easily be the altmode to the same "Starfish" City.

Yes. That is God Fire Convoy, AKA Omega Prime. AKA the reason Armada Megatron has restricted leg articulation.

Well, Titans are too costly to produce for Fun Pub.
