What would you like to see in Generations now in these Three Categories.
CATEGORY 1. - "It Has to Be G1!"
More Selects-bound eHobby/fringe G1 stuff like Tigertrack.
SUNSTORM. and also Ghost Starscream.
Turbomasters. Basically everyone I listed in the earlier thread that hasn't been done yet still applies.
New Micromaster molds -- an A10 that can be repurposed for either Sunrunner or Hot House/Tailwind, a big wheel monster truck (Mudslinger and Greasepit), etc. Enough to complete the teams they've started. And a new 10pack, that was one of the bright spots of comparative new in Siege.
If G2 is lumped in, give me Selects of the canceled redecos. And a G2 Dinobots set, and G2 Defensor.
Would like a new Leader Class gimmick that isn't "Voyager with stuff".
I agree, more fembots that aren't bikini models in a box. Start with a better take on Elita that isn't Arcee with a different head: give her the G1 toon altmode and a less shellformerish transformation.
A new Thrilling 30-feeling bunch straight out of Idw and IDW2 (I don't follow it anymore but I'm sure there are some who do). Aileron, Pharma, DJD, Stardrive, Rum-Maj, etc. Use that ROM trademark for a Rung retool and maybe more. Some that carry the aesthetic of Sarah Stone's art, however you do that.
Still digging the Pretender idea of a Deluxe core robot with snap-on interchangeable organic-aesthetic Pretender armor that can more or less form the shell or a shield/weapon/whatever when the inner robot is in altmode. It'd probably need a new price point unless the inner robot is even smaller than Earthrise Cliff or Bee, no idea how they'd figure that out. Unless the inner robot is as is and the armor is sold separately like the standalone Titan Masters. Either way, the RED line is there for those who want the actual original design with full articulation; there's room for a different take that involves both transforming and articulation.
Commander Class... I still only begrudgingly embrace this, but that's mostly due to the crowd that wants everyone (including those who would be decent at Leader class because everything must be as big as they were to 5-year-old them. Sky Lynx was a good way to make use of this, I'll grant. Still think a Victory Saber (not just a Star Saber) would be good here; a Leaderish Star Saber and a Weaponizer-style Voyagerish Victory Leo. Wouldn't say no to a Thunderwing, a Leaderish base figure with armor bits that give him a bigger, Stormbringer-style brute mode.
CATEGORY 2. - "It Has to Fit WFC Kingdom: BW/G1 Meeting!"
Both Fuzor and technorganic Silverbolts.
A mainline Blackarachnia, from whom they can retool Transmetal 2 Blackarachnia and Crystal Widow (BM-based details).
Battle Masters: Moon, Diagnostic Drone, Tarantulas minispider, Under-3
If it's G1/BW meeting, make it more Agenda or Botcon 2008 and less Botcon 2016.
CATEGORY 3. - "God, Anything Other Than G1 PLEASE!"
A new RID2015 Strongarm. Actually lots from RID2015; they wouldn't necessarily be in the right aesthetic, but it revisits the characters and gives them a chance to catch on, allowing for the possibility of the right aesthetic someday. And if not, well, hey, we got a (new) Springload or Glowstrike or Clamp Down or Zizza, what's not to love about that?
Some RID2001 while we're at it. Prowl, Side Burn, X-Brawn, Optimus, etc. I'd love a Prowl that isn't so fated to lose his car doors over time. Spychangers as Deluxes, or as a revived Legends class.
UT Mini-Cons. They don't have to activate anything, but I'd love them back. It could just be Micromaster-like 2packs (though I'd prefer a versus setup, so you can get three 2packs to complete two Mini-Con teams).
Energon Rodimus. And a new take on Energon Optimus that kills that tired old Fatimus joke by keeping him beefy but distributing the bulk well.
Is asking for a new Cybertron Hot Shot/Excellion excessive given we're getting new G1 Hot Rods? I don't care.
In general, incorporate some design bits from Cyberverse and Evergreen or Authentics or whatever into the G1 with knees they do.
New characters and designs from Cyberverse. Wildwheel, Iaconus, Macaddam, Thunderhowl, etc.
TF Prime Knock Out and Breakdown.
I think one very important thing I'd like to see is a return to the pre-brand unification style where Takara and Hasbro have different decos and redecos and whatnot going. Or really just the redecos/retools; the Takara-initiated Selects and the upcoming differently-decoed Allicon (I think? I forget what happened with that) hearken back to those days. It's always lovely to have so many options.
