Fortress Maximus.

Was Fort Max actually confirmed, or was it just a strong rumor? That's not the first I've heard of it.

He asked who we wanna see. I wanna see Fort Max because I don't think it was actually confirmed.

Fort Max was heavily rumored for release in the next couple of years.

There have been rumours about Dinobots but not all rumors turn out ot be true. Molds busted or not, I'd say it would be smart money to reinvest in those, but we'll see.

At least Encore is continuing. The more surprises ahead, the better.

Even if a molds are busted these companies have the technology Im sure to remold from original toy. As for Fort Max...I think the new candy mold might be a feeler to see how well it goes over. Im just curious about release's and child safety. Id deff shell out 200 or so for a reissue vs a G for an original one.

I'd LOVE another (afforable) version of Diaclone Magnus.

I'd like to see the Dinobots (for obvious reasons) and then the Aerialbots myself. Yes, the Aerialbots have been (and continue to be) knocked off to infinite degree but, well they're my favorite Combiner and I'd love to see them brought back at Takara quality and with new Decos (even remolds?) to better match the toon.


I'm a bit biased about Fort Max. On the one hand I still have my original from childhood. Now I could use a few pieces to fix him up but I don't think I'd ever spring for another full version. Almost certainly would be too pricey for me.


Ooooo, I know Dino Cassettes! Release those four! Surprised it took me this long to think of them...


ZacWilliam, feels the cassettes are infinately collectable. They could keep churning out new character repaints and even start making new ones in exactly the G1 style and I'd want them all. Just don't keep packaging them with Blaster and SW... icon-waspy.gif

I'd want a four pack of Scrounge (Rumble), Tyrannitron (Overkill), Top-Heavy (Ramhorn) and Lionizer (Steeljaw).

When it comes to cassette repaints, i think each mold should be used four times (minus reissues). Laserbeak for example was repainted into Buzzsaw, Garboil and Sundor so no more of that mold while there are other molds to be repainted.


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!

I wouldn't mind some E-hobby characters like Tiger Tracks released at reasonable prices.

New character repaints would be nice. How many Jazzes and Ironhides do we need among all the lines? Maybe Barricade from Prowl or Black Ironhide as Motormouth.

G1 Acid Storm and Slipstream.

If they think it'll be worth the expense, then they may. But due to lost/destroyed/degraded molds, we have yet to see several G1 toys reissued, like Wheeljack and Mirage for example.

In Japan I'm sure it won't be an issue, but there's no way it would get a mass-release here.

Oh, I'm sure it would cost more than that. Still be cheaper than an original for sure, though.

The Dinobots are about the only G1 molds I could feasibly see being worth the expense.

I'd love a Reissue Wheeljack and all but I have a feeling him (and Sunstreaker/Mirage) wouldn't be that great of a seller.

I wager you are correct there, and that's why the work on new molds for them has not been done. Its just not likely to be worth it.
