Had to be asked. OK More than 40 Generations figures in 2013 is a huge number when you come down to it. Literally huge. So go at it. Can you name your top 40 existing characters (no particular order) you'd like to see reborn next year?

1) Grimlock
2) Slug
3) Swoop
4) Snarl
5) Sludge
6) Blitzwing
7) Trailbreaker
8) Gears
9) Hoist
10) Skids
11)Kickback
12) Bombshell
13) Shrapnel
14) Silverbolt
15) Sky Dive
16) Air Raid
17) Slingshot
18) Fireflight
19) G1 Arcee
20) Fortress Maximus
21) Chromedome
22) Scrounge (please?)
23) Macabre
24) Impactor
25) Grotusque
26) Hun-Grr
27) Blot
28) Sinnertwin
29) Rippersnapper
30) Cutthroat
31) Skorponok
32) Carnivac
33) Jhiaxus
34) Elita 1
35) Deathsaurus
36) Devcon
37) G1 Top Spin
38) G1 Twin Twist
39) Chop Shop
40) Venom


-ZacWilliam, god 40 is a hard list to fill, and I'm sure I left off a ton of good choices (especially big guys as i'd love Omega Supreme but not smaller than Leader)and yeah, I'm a G1 fanboy, no appologies there. What's your dream list look like?
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

I .... I think that 40 might be more than I want.

Certainly more than I can afford.

It would be completely unreasonable to expect forty new mold Deluxes. I seriously expect many of the forty if that number is accurate to be Cyberverse toys. And repaints from previous Generations toys plus repaints from other new molds yet to be announced.

Forty would be easy to fill but then I'd list some obscure characters few others care for.
It all began in '84. Kept on rollin' in '85. The pieces were in place in '86, and it came to an end in '87. But now it comes, and here we go. Transformers is here again. Nothing's gonna stop it 'cause it's 1988!

Who now? Ah yes, we can't use "Slag" anymore. Meh.

Anywhoozle, give me Trailbreaker, Gears, Huffer, Fortress Maximus, Laserbeak/Buzzsaw, Soundwave, along with the canceled Rumble and Frenzy, and I'll be a damned happy-camper.

Of course it's not 40 new mold deluxes. I'm sure the number includes redecos.

I guess if I were to take my list and put it in order of OMG WANT, it would read...

01) Fortress Maximus
02) Trailbreaker
03) Soundwave
04) Laserbeak/Buzzsaw
05) Huffer
06) Gears
07) Rumble/Frenzy

Of course I'd love new Dinobots as well, but I put completing the 1984 cast + Fort ahead of that.

I know! Let's list our 40 favorite transformers! Brilliant! :/

The big question is what will they repaint/remold. I'd love a Jackpot from Prowl, a Ricochet from Jazz, and a REAL Roadrage/Swerve from Tracks. Purplestuff, Slicer, movie-esque Barricade from Prowl, and a half dozen other Classics/Universe/Generations autobot repaints. Including a junkion 2 pack w/ a more g1 inspired Wreckgar paintscheme. Sweeps.

If you want to know what my priority deluxe Generations wishlist is... I guess:
Blitzwing
Swoop
Slug/Slag
Snarl
(voyager) Sludge
(voyager) Grimlock
Gnaw/Sharkticons

clearly listing 40 is just obscene.

We know (ok, reasonably expect) the head remolds to be part of that so...

1) Kup remold (Swerve?)
2) Prime remold (Nemesis?)
3) Scourge remold (Ratbat?)
4) Jazz remold (uhhh?)
5) Perceptor remold (Reflector)
6) Lugnut (uhhh?)

Plus I figure a lot more are redecos/remolds of earlier molds. I'd be shocked if we even get 20+ new Generations molds in 2013.

Really anything I put down just sounds way too fanboy-y/delusional.
If I could walk into a store and buy a voyager Ultra Magnus and at least one, but preferably more, of The 13 I will be incredibly happy.
I'd want Ultra Magnus to be new and Aligned-y looking, and the The 13 should be one that doesn't have a toy already.


Also, I don't really see them putting out 40 deluxes in a year. At least not all in one line.
There has to be another size class.

Anybody as long as we get someone not from G1.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I can't believe I forgot Nightbeat!

I feel like that omission throws my whole list into chaos and doubt. I'm like the guy from Monty Python who got ejected off the bridge for misstating his favorite color. ;p

Seriously. Nightbeat is right behind "The rest of the 84 cast" and "all the Dinobots"on my top wish list.

And pre-planed Minerva repaint/remold please.


-ZacWilliam, yes 40 new mold Deluxes is rediculous, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun listing the 40 characters we'd love to see done. icon-hotrod.gif

1. Shockwave (A helicopter, a less flimsy-looking HISS Tank or hoverjet like DOTM Laserbeak would be nice)
2. Soundwave (A stealth drone or a tricked-out van would work)
3. Starscream (An F-22, as long as he's less boring than the Classics Seeker mold)
4. Red Alert (UT)
5. Starscream (Armada)
6. Megatron (Tank, can be colored like G2 or Classics)
7. Scourge (Nemesis Prime made from RTS Prime)
8. Swindle (Can be a new mold or a Hound retool)
9. Lockdown (The ROTF mold is good, but I'd like one with less panels)
10. Blitzwing
11. Jetfire (Armada)
12. Optimus Prime (Can be a new Deluxe firetruck, maybe?]
13. Ironhide (either a Humvee or a Movie-inspired pickup truck)
14. Flatline (A hearse, natch; this guy NEEDS a toy. And more appearances in fiction. A Classics-ization, but due to him modifying his own body, he's very lanky-looking and freaky.)
15. Nightbeat (new mold)
16. Megatron (Armada MOOSE)
17. Megatron (BW)
18. Ratchet (A new separate mold from Ironhide)
19. Blaster (Can be a Soundwave retool if Soundwave's a van)
20. Arcee (Preferably a bike, basically a Classics-ization of Prime Arcee)
21. Cosmos (Has to be a UFO, and has to be chubby.)
22. Barricade (Classics-ization of Movie Barricade)
23. Prowl (Retool of Barricade)
24. Sky-Byte (New mold for all the people who missed out on Botcon Sky-Byte; I didn't, but it'd be nice for there to be more Sky-Bytes for everyone)
25. Waspinator (Every joint is able to be detached and re-attached - just like in the show!)
26. Slipstream (Classics - turns into a Berkut)
27. Thundercracker (Transforms into a Cobra Rattler)
28. Skywarp (Transforms into an F-117 and comes with a cardboard stand that's essentially a set of stairs for him to push people down icon-fire.gif)
29. Springer
30. Optimus Primal
31. Sentinel Prime (Classics-ization of the DOTM version)
32. Bulkhead (Classics take on Animated Bulkhead)
33. Cannonball (New mold Amphibious Assault vehicle, or maybe a Bulkhead retool - like a bigger Breacher)
34. Whirl (A V-22)
35. Roadbuster (Basically a Warthog from Halo)
36. Rhinox
37. Orion Pax (A pick-up truck based on Alternators Optimus - has the IDW Pre-Prime Optimus head)
38. Galvatron (New mold that turns into a futuristic tank)
39. Jackpot (Nightbeat Retool)
40. Blackarachnia (A show-accurate representation of her original BW form)

There's been a little confusion.

You see, the breakdown is actually like this:

Ten Fall of Cybertron toys (Bruticus, Shockwave, Optimus, Jazz, filler, filler)
And the remaining spots are all Sky Lynx.

Curious as to whether the repaint/remould would be Minerva or Siren (for the latter, packaged in car mode, it'd be a blue car and a silver car). Never likely to get a Siren otherwise, after all, and while Hasbro are slightly less gun-shy than they once were on the "OH NOES GIRLS!1" front, I'm not entirely sure they'd go out of their way to do one if there was an alternative.*

*No, Nightbeat and Siren weren't originally mouldmates, but they ARE similar cars associated with one another, and cases like Tracks/Wheeljack, Drift/Blurr & Bumblebee/Cliffjumper/Hot Shot show they're not shy about making a repaint/remould out of a character who originally wasn't one.

I really hope the 40 figures includes older Classics molds like Mirage. I'd love to own Mirage again, I don't remember what happened to mine.

all the head remolds finally released and a rumble/frenzy 2pack cause i ain't paying foreign prices for something hasbro should've already put out.

as for new stuff, i'd really like to see the dinobots all made, but i'd really prefer a voyager size class to be included so they could make sludge bigger. and if we're getting voyager class, i'd throw in bm tankor, bw rhinox, and tm megatron
