Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

What would you like to see in Generations now in these Three Categories.

The Categories and my answers:

CATEGORY 1. - "It Has to Be G1!"

- Ok, then, nothing from 84-86 except Huffer, Pipes and Omnibots. No. No. Nothing. For at least 2 years. You want to do Optimus? Fine, do Star Convoy again or Pretender, or Action Master Optimus design. You want to do Bumblebee? Do Goldbug or Pretender Bumblebee.

-1988 Headmasters (both Bots and Cons)

-Autobot Target Masters

-All the Pretenders they skipped in some form. Love these guys.

-Weaponizer Junkions

-Black Ironhide and other Diaclone/Microman designs-Colors as NEW G1 Characters

-Female Transformers with different body types: Bulky Built Stryka or Tiny Gauge. Thin Lightbrite, Chubby Aileron. And so on.

-Obscure stuff like Spanner and Big Red

CATEGORY 2. - "It Has to Fit WFC Kingdom: BW/G1 Meeting!"

- Silverbolt

- Stampy

- Some Non-Show BW Guys

- BW Guys that could be reused for missing Late G1 guys (Carnivac, Snarler, Horribul, etc)

- Slight stretch but: Vehicon Jetstorm. Tankor has had on-model toys, Thrust has had on Model toys. Jetstorm hasn't had anything close and he's a fun character darn it.

- BW Commander or Titan

CATEGORY 3. - "God, Anything Other Than G1 PLEASE!"

- Cyberverse Season 3 introed something like a Half Dozen all NEW characters to the franchise. Do THAT but in Generations. Be Creative. I'll even break the category rules right out: They could even all be in the G1 Universe if they have to be, if they are an ALL NEW cast darn it.

- Remember why it's Generations and give us more RiD 1, Armada, RiD 2 and Prime guys in Generations style.

-I want Generations style figures of any of the original Rescue Bots and/or Rescue Bots:Academy characters

-ZacWilliam, OK, I ended up unloading a lot more thoughts there then I intended when I started. What would *you* most like to see in these Categories?

Edited by ZacWilliam1, 18 July 2020 - 07:36 AM.

Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

As someone who began collecting as an adult during Armada, I'm always for more UT stuff. I wish the Armada Optimus new mold was already released.

I also hope that Kingdom does well enough that we get more BW stuff, and also BM.

Alright, so:


  Category 1 - G1:


  - I wouldn't be mad at Omnibots, a better Huffer or a much better take on Pipes.  A much-needed, decent Galvatron was on my wish list, and I hope that WFC 3 delivers.  Aside from that, Devcon, a nice G1 Alpha Trion, an Earthrise-style take on Jazz and Hound, and a Commander Class Overlord would be my picks.



  Category 2 - Fitting the Next Line:


  - Blackarachnia, Silverbolt and BW Ravage.  If we are stretching into BM with this category, then I'd still like a Leader Class Tankor with Diagnostic Drone.



  Category 3 - Beyond G1:


  - I honestly don't know; how about something all-new?  Make up a few new characters/toys with all-new designs, etc. to toss into the Generations frying pan.



    Holy crap!

Category 1: Monstructor. I'm still hoping for a Titan-class set with full shells (maybe make 'em Weaponizers so they can armor up the combined form too).


Category 2: BW Rampage. Give me a new giant Hannibal crab.


Category 3: TLK Steelbane, upsized to Voyager. Or just take the existing toy and give it better paint and joint tolerances. I love the knight aesthetic, I love dragons, but the toy could use some help.

Category 1:

I'm not sure what I'd actively WANT that we haven't already gotten recently. Sunbow-style Cybertronian modes for Bumblebee, Jazz and Wheeljack, I guess? The remaining Headmasters would be cool but not something I'm yearning for.

At the end of the day though I'm in this for cool toys, so I'd be ok with anything as long as the figures are good and not too similar to something I already have.

Category 2:

BW Ravage and the remaining BW season 2 and 3 show characters. Then, Beast Machines!

Category 3:

What I'd really love is for Generations to truly become a line sampling from every series. Animated characters, UT, and ideally new characters in different aesthetics all mixed together.

I really just want like, active character design and reinvention back in Transformers. I guess I have like, my own wants, but you could do whatever as long as I can tell anything about a character by looks alone that isn't 'I remember that guy!' and/or 'Cool Robot'. And also make more of them ladies. I don't care how you do it, but it'd be fun to trans some genders of old characters and get fans bent out of shape lol


Oh! Okay, like, Micromaster Firecons that are just color swaps of one another for swarming. That'd be fun. And more likely to actually happen.

Sure, I'll throw my 2 cents' in:

Category 1: G1
New, regular retail releases of Haywire and Recoil as TargetBattleMasters. We got a Firebolt, why don't Blurr and Kup get some little buddies?
Finish the Pretenders. We need Waverider, at least.

Category 2: Kingdom
Throwing my vote for Minerva in here.
Also, a Generations-ized Animated Red Alert.
A Predacon Sauropod.

Category 3: Anything Else
I would also echo the desire for Generations-ized Rescue Bots.
I would then add Playskool GoBots in Generations style: Speed-bot, Mototron, Buzzer-bot, and Hauler-bot for sure. All doable as redecos/retools of current or theoretical-new molds, and the kids who had those would mostly be adults by now.
Also, Tonka Gobots, even though that is unlikely.
EDIT: also also, Flatline with a true hearse altmode.

Omnibots and IDW comic bots. There's still a lot of ground to farm with those I think. The obvious being Pharma and the djd. I wouldn't mind some random limbs "new characters?" with combiner wars sockets.

I mostly just want Quintessons. We got the Judges, Sharkticons, Allicons, and even the Bailiff, let's keep going with a proper Prosecutor, and Executor, and some Scientists (including the 3-Headed one and the guy from Cyberverse).


Weird stuff like the Purple Griffin and Beast Machine Vehicons would be great too, if unlikely.



Beasts I'm kinda ambivalent to. Like, I grew up on Beast Wars and it's my favorite TF show.... but apart from the "holy grails" Tripredacus and the Fuzors I just never feel compelled to get any actual toys, since they're so far removed from the rest of TFs now.

2: Waspinator repainted as Buzzsaw in Selects


3: Studio Series is technically Generations, right? I will repeat myself.


Armada Tidal Wave or Scavenger would also be nice

On rare occasions, I have something to say.

I mean, deluxe sized Micromasters would be pretty
cool and most of their vehicle modes could double as the 1984 G1 cast, keeping the same kind of vibe on the shelves. That's what I did as a kid. lots of 84 micromasters filled in for guys I didn't have, but at the end of the day the dudes were still new dudes which is great. I just miss when the majority of transformers figures were brand new characters.

AND if existing characters have to get upgrades, they should be as dramatic as the differences between season 1 beast wars and season 2 and season 3 modes. Seige Ironhide and Earthrise Ironhide both look great (to me) but they also look relatively the same. I know that's an obvious critique that's been beaten in to the ground, but it'd be nice to get away from that.


Just assault me with as many different characters as the actual beast wars lines had. I am excited to see what they'll be bringing to the table with the new molds for the show cast. If they mirror the designs too close it might be tough, because I still think most of the beast wars figures continue to hold up.

Anything else

I also wouldn't mind generation styled versions of "newer"/not G1 characters, like from Animated, RID, the bad guys from aligned RID, the Rescue Bots cast, Prime characters and even Vehicons.

Above all else, it would be really cool to augment the Autobot and Decepticons (Maximal and Predacon) ranks i already own with legitimate new characters.

most of the stuff i still wanna see usually gets mentioned. so, moving forward, i wouldn't mind a few more gender bending characters, like animated red alert. take some of the lesser knowns and change them up with a new look as a fembot


and a g1 movie scalpel would be neat. i remember a digibash of him using the most recent perceptor mold

More ladies - Strika/Alphastrike, Nautica and Road Rage are my top three picks.  A G1 Shadow Striker and Slipstream wouldn't be amiss either. (More lady cons in general.  And PLEASE don't make them all the same damn mold)  Minerva would be good as well (especially if it gives us a Nightbeat)


Chunky Style Cosmos - I have the Legends version that was re-released in TR, but I'd like a less svelt one.  Cosmos is supposed to be delightfully roly-poly.


Devcon would be nice.


Leader Class Grimlock, but it sounds like the Studio Series is where that's going to happen.


More Micromasters.  Just..  all the Micromasters.




Honestly if they just hit all of the S1 characters, and any unique S2/3 characters (I don't need three versions of Primal, Megatron and Cheetor)




Titan.  Class.  Tidal.  Wave.  I just want a bigass aircraft carrier titan.
