Oh boy oh boy, I get to list my wants!

 

Okayokay, here goes...

 

-Commander class G1-styled Lugnut

 

-Titan class G1 Tidal Wave with small jet(Armada Ramjet homage) named "Fathom"(TR homage)

 

-A Deluxe Huffer that can haul ER Optimus Prime's trailer, with an appropriate Pipes retool

 

-Leader class G1 Dinobot Snarl, complete with gun & sword

 

-A redeco of GUOP representing Toxitron

 

-Commander Skyquake with corpse redeco to represent Machine Wars Starscream

 

-A whole new set of Constructicons, Deluxe or small Voyager, scaled to component robot modes instead of combined mode

 

-The rest of the missing Micromasters; also with 3mm fist holes ala original Cyberverse stuff back in 2011

 

-Various Siege Shockwave mold reuses/retools including Longarm(Animated homage construction retool) and Rad(retooled into a hover limo or something)

 

-Leader class Strika

 

-Commander class Thunderwing with Deluxe inner robot

 

-Mercenary Star Dasher from Siege/ER Astrotrain

 

-Leader class Roadbuster

 

-Voyager class Motormaster, G1-accurate 18-wheeler instead of another cab-only Optimus Prime mold

 

-Leader class Groundshaker convertable Micromaster base

 

-Voyager Bludgeon short inner robot tank with armor-up accessories to turn him into skull samurai mode

 

...that all off the top of my head. I'll have more later, most likely.

G1

 

-Some kind of big imposing Thunderwing. Commander, Leader, anything. The Generations Deluxe is nice, but doesn't quite hit the same appeal.

 

-Another shot at Blaster and friends maybe? Please?

 

Kingdom

-Just anything weird and different, honestly. The BEST would be new characters in full-on Beast Wars style, but straying away from season 1 designs or show characters would be great too (TMII Cheetor please if you're still trying to do big names).

-At the very least just lesser-made characters would be a plus, Scorponok seems like a step in the right direction.

Anything Else

 

-Yeah, new characters. Just go nuts, have fun, closest we've really gotten in a while was Combiner Wars and some of those were great.

-More attempts like Barricade to see how other characters would look interpreted into a Generations-y, G1-y style. Lockdown, Blackout, Bulkhead, another shot at Slipstream... again, go nuts.

For G1, I'd like to see the remaining G1 Autobot Micromaster Patrols: the Air Patrol, the Construction Patrol, and the Monster Truck Patrol. There's no more Decepticon ones, but Hasbro could do Beastbox/Squawktalk and Overkill/Slugfest instead. 

I'd also like to see at least two more of the Micromaster Combiner Squads. Say, Oiler/Slide and Sledge/Hammer.
 
And finally, Bludgeon, at either the Deluxe or Voyager scale.

1) Pretenders revisited/rethought. Treat the shell as transforming battle armor -- it has its own alt mode, maybe it has its own robot mode, it can hold or combine with the inner robot to make a bigger/powered up robot, and it can hold or combine with the inner robot's vehicle form. No more statues, please.

 

2) A random thought: could a collector/big kids Transformers subline be moved away from a war theme? I was thinking about this in the context of those little independent boutique toy stores that always have LEGO and other "brainy" toys, but for some reason never have Transformers despite the intricate puzzle play pattern.

 

The first idea I could think of was an space exploration/adventure team where the various members have unique mobility traits -- one guy's a land rover, some guys can fly, some can go underwater, some can go to space -- but they also have some kind of combining ability that lets them share abilities or some such, so there's a built-in character motive for teamwork as they confront different environments, and a consumer motive to buy more of them.

 

Something like that could push Transformers into some new niche markets and be a good excuse to create new characters.

Robert is made to withstand plenty of play, and transforms from car to robot! Go, Robert, go!

Why will we solve after Robert grasps the abysmal winter's ulcer? He may change rural tailors, do you join them? The films, tapes, and spoons are all good and fresh.

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.

Weaponizer Junkions.

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.

I want new characters, but I'd settle for non sunbow characters. The beast characters coming have filled me with a sense of forboding as if the Generations line is anything to go by, we may get them without any sculpted fur detail like the MP line... So yeah, new characters and fur detail on the beasts if they go the actual animal route. That shouldn't be too much to ask for.

I'm not bothering with categories. What I want is new characters  with new designs (EX HftD Jetblade*, Hailstorm/Mindset, Tomahawk, Terradive, Deep dive*) but I want the media (comics, shows) to spotlight them and make fans care about them (Cyberverse is a good start), and not have them 'replace' cast members. More people might've cared about Rook, Alpha Bravo, and Offroad had that not been the case.

 

*Recolors of re-imagined G1 characters, but I see those toys as those characters. Not the G1 guys

  Oh yes.  I think that a ghost version of Earthrise Starscream would be a lot of fun. 

 

  I'm also really loving the Weaponizer Pack stuff and I'd like to see more of that.  In particular, I think that something like a Coronation set for Earthrise Starscream would be very cool to see in a future release.  They could even include a little display stand with ash and a crumpled crown, that would be nice. 

 

  Anyway, I share the the desire to have an option for a Leader Class figure that isn't "Voyager with stuff", too.  Just making the figure larger would be good enough, provided that it was a nice design/deco.

No idea if we were thinking of the same thing, but I just realized -- I was thinking mainly of the black/gold/gray eHobby Ghost Starscream that came out alongside their Susntorm, but when you mentioned it the clear Ghost Starscream design came to mind and I realized I wouldn't mind that too. Maybe that smoky clear plastic with regular plastic for joint parts, like Holo-Mirage got.

What I want from Generations currently:

 

Rodimus prime in a size similar to WFCS Ultra Magnus or prehaps make do similar to what happens with Magnus, build around a Hot Rod figure

 

Voyager class Weaponisers

 

Old school leader class Thunderwing to go along side Skyshadow

 

WFCS Skywarp rereleased at mass retail instead of how it was, I was never able to get a copy of the figure and it goes for silly money on Ebay and I am not willing to spend that amount to obtain a set that worth only about £40.

 

Voyager cone heads at mass retail, not exclusives.
