Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

Id also like to see more toys of Windblade and Nautica, and for Velocity and Anode to get toys as well. Roberts female TFs were one of the very best parts of MTMTE.

A G1 version of RID Strongarm would also be nice.

 

I can't like this post enough.

Thinking about Weaponizer, I would like out the the Generations line, other class weaponziers beyond just deluxe and voyager, leader, commander class weaponizers would be nice, if they do a updated Armada Tidalwave in commander class, enable him to be to attach to other figures with the 5ml port connections, it would increase his play value if he more than just a bunch of vehicles capable of combining into a single large ship or a giant robot!

Beware, rambling

 

Make the next Trilogy a new Unicron Trilogy. I mean, hey, they do have a big-ass Unicron out soon.

 

And just to keep creating disambig nightmares, call it Fall of Cybertron, which follows War for Cybertron.

 

Fall of Cybertron: Legion, an RID2001/Armada mashup

  • The Kiss Players dudes Mini-Cons from another universe arrive to warn the warring Autobots and Decepticons of the coming Unicron!
  • Play pattern includes micro play
  • Mini-Cons instead of Micromasters, MOAR MODULATORS, character selection continues to cross off latter G1 and early 2000s, Commander Class Omega Guardian (Animated Ark/base), Titan Class Tidal Wave

Fall of Cybertron: Planetwar, an Energon/Cybertron/RID2015 mashup

  • With the threat of Unicron now apparent, the search begins for pieces of the Allspark on Cybertron, Earth, and the colony worlds (including newer-created ones) [plenty of room for characters from all over]
  • Play pattern includes combining melee Energon weapons and armor, Battleslash/Roadtrap style combinations, colony world subgroups
  • Legends class instead of Mini-Cons/Micros (for Omnicons and such), bring in a cross-generational aesthetic mix, especially RID2015, character selection a Best Of from latter G1, the Beast Era, and the Unicron Trilogy, whoever that means; mix in other factions and groups like the Star Seekers and the Spaceknights, Commander Class Metrotitan (new citybot mold?)

Fall of Cybertron: Void, an IDW/G2/Cyberverse/kitchen sink mashup

  • After Optimus and Megatron sacrifice themselves (temporarily duh) to defeat Unicron's planetary form, the real final form, a deadly singularity, is revealed, and can only be beaten if the colony worlds work together to bring back the Knights of Cybertron and Primus and uh Jesus
  • Play pattern includes I dunno a little of everything I wish I'd thought this through
  • Legends class still around, with some Mini-Con and Micromaster representatives, cast is an IDW-style council of worlds and MTMTE cast; new leaders who aren't Op and Megs (Hyperdrive and Jhiaxus?); who hasn't been given knees yet? get in here; Commander or Titan Class Croaton or Iaconus

Part 4: Aftermath

 

Story, Megatron & Optimus are dead or presumed dead in the aftermath of the final battle against Unicron, the Autobots and Decepticons have broken into various smaller factions and its gang warfare across the stars for the cons as they seek to dominate each other and the Autobot groups are trying to put out the various fires

 

Toy wise: New verisons of various characters, some Minicons have taken up Transectors in order to surive in this new world and they can swap bodies similar to TR headmasters but the bodies of the Minicons can still transform into small vehicles. Gimmick can be with differnt minicons you reveal a different feature on the bot when the minicon is connected, so when say Overrun connects to one body the body reveals a gun but when you connect say Jolt, you reveal a blade. This gimmick to be installed on the leader & commander class figures, while voyagers have only one weapon appear but prehaps a change of Insigmia depending which side the minicon has chosen Autobot or Decepticon, while deluxe its about reveal which faction they belong to along side some weaponizer bots.

 

Legends scale: vehicles capable of taking a minicon and being able to connect to other sets of the same size to form bases but also having pegs capable of attaching to larger bots so the bases can double as weapons for them.

More lady transformers, and ones that have like regular transformations! We're all good on shellformers with slavish Dery robot modes now thanks!

Also spinning off that more female TF body variety! Like PotP Elita-1 was a breath of fresh air and one of my fav toys (despite being a retool of a poopy Starscream and inheriting those flaws). But like not every woman bot has to be shorter than the male characters in the sameness size class, nor do they have to be thing and have tiny ankles and hands, it kinda feels weird and fetish-y tbh lol

And this is definitely more pipedream but I'd love some nonbinary bots! Especially agender ones! Like it seems so simple for a line about robotic lifeforms have characters who don't have a gender, yet here we are with all these gender having bots and like 95% of them being male.

Oh also I feel like Hasbro shouldn't be afraid to change established male characters to be female! They've done it with some GI Joe characters in the past, and I know reactionary fan reaction was, well, reactionary; but at the same time it brings the opportunity for new and interesting storytelling and play possibilities, and representation (more women characters is always good, but if they wanted to make them trans too that would be beyond my current expectations and totally awesome). Totally Pidge them up! (trans girl Pidge ftw)

I'm all for more Strongarms and Overrides (a name I forgot from my previous list) and such. Now that the Dery checklist is more or less done with (and whatever follows can just reuse one of those with a new head or whatever) let's bring in more variety. (Edit: and this isn't exactly a bodytype example, but I'd love a new Airachnid, please. Maybe the design can be revisited and done better now.)

And yeah, it'd be nice to see that kind of representation in the fiction some more, especially if it can be informed by trans writers or allies as well. The more it's done and done well in broader-reaching fiction, the better.

I would like a good IDW-inspired Arcee who embraces that 'former barbarian older lady' aspect and an Aileron that's just as chunky as the comic.

 

Anode and Lug would be cool, too, especially if Anode can wear Lug like a backpack.

 

And I know this is the biggest pipe dream but a whole set of new mold Torchbearers would be stellar.

I never really got into Strongarm as a character... maybe if they ditched the cop aspect of her? Like she can still be a stickler for rules without being a frakking cop of all things lol

Animated made Drag Strip a female in toy form and in a comic for Botcon, although Drag Strip has the least personality out of all the Stunticons to begin with.


Yes! She slipped my mind atm, but yes. Do that more! Especially for characters whose personalities need reinvention or who otherwise are boring as a male character (my go to is Sideswipe: wow a generic boring tough guy, or a kickass tough woman like Prime Arcee... which one truly welcomes more interesting story ideas and character dynamics? And gives us a character who is underrepresented in all media? Hmmm)

Category 1 - G1:

 

Not a pure G1 thing, but back in the day, There was another company that had the license to the Seeker mold. They were Four Star Transistor Robots, and the called the toys Phantom F-15. They made a black and red seeker and a White and blue seeker. We had that White and Blue seeker growing up, and it was awesome. I would love to see the Earthrise mode in those colors. I am tempted to get another starscream to paint in those colors.

Here is a picture to show you what I mean:

Picture-2044_1279421643.jpg

 

I always imagine him to be a heroic Autobot as a kid, and I think that it would be cool if he became an official TF.

 

 

Category 2 - Fitting the Next Line:

 

 

Jawbreaker. An amazing toy, that is a forgotten treasure of the line. It got a little love as a horseman back int he UT days, but the mold and character haven't ever been given its due. I would love to see a new one.

 

Big Convoy or Lioconvoy would be great to get!

 

I would also love to see the Beast Wars Combiners get a new mold or a new Dinoking.

 

Category 3 - Beyond G1:

The UT gave us some neat characters that got subpar toys. Maybe start with some of the worst offenders and make good toys for them that aren't hampered by their gimmick. Hotshot, Red Alert, Sideswipe, Thrust, Ironhide, all could use a new toy.

 

RID 2000 needs some love. Give us a new Railracer, Ruination (Easy repaint), Scourge (Again Easy Repaint), Autobot bros, and the predacon Trio. Could even do a new set of buildbots too.

 

Prime.  Give us the one mold that you skipped, give us Breakdown!

One more thing I'd like to see for the next line is a pattern.

Take the Commander and Titan Class figures, they opt to be show accurate, but for their size, they are bland, I do like the look of Omega Supreme, Scorponok, Trypticon, Sky Lynx and Jetfire but they could have done with a few extras like spring missiles, sound boxes, cockpits for titan/prime masters or even Legend class figures. Some extra kibble wouldn't have gone amiss, weapons and things for their base modes.

I'm really just thinking of other kids into Transformers, between ten to fifteen years ago I shared my weekends with my nephews while their parents worked, they loved to play with my UT/Classics/Animated collection, I;d join in for a bit but it occurs to me I'll probably be entertaining their children in a few years and it hit me how dull the recent stuffs been.

The thing is none of the toys your talking about are really meant for kids any more. The Generations line, big and small, are aimed at Adult Geek Collectors and the older kids, (preteen and teen) that have somehow not aged out of action figures because they are on their way towards being Adult Geek Collectors. The character choices and designs are largely dictated by nostalgia because they're aimed to people who were kids of the 80s and now value show accuracy and displayability over fun playability.

The line aimed at kids the way G1, Unicron Trilogy and Animated was is Cyberverse. So that's where you have gimmicks like sound activated lights and voice and flip action features. That's where flash and fun and new characters and the new current Cartoon matter because that's what they're making for kids to have fun with.

-ZacWilliam, this complete line division by age (with Rescue Bots the step bellow Cyberverse for even younger kids) is a fairly new facet of the line but it has very strongly influenced the line since maybe around Transformers: Prime.

Man OK..... Cat 1.... I really don't know. At this point anything G1 I want I have in some form or is upcoming soon. At this point if I like the way it looks I buy it, but the last year has been pretty easy for me to skip the new releases mostly due to not really needing another iteration of a G1 character..

 

Cat 2 is full of possibility

Currently would love a new version of Classic Airrazor, Terrorsaur, ironically Scorponok, I mean I'd be down for another pass at Dinobot! Heck Dinobot II could definitely get a new pass on figure wise. But Other than Rhinox and Rattrap I'd be down for any BW show character getting another pass. Razor Beast would be cool too....as long as we get a Meerkat to go with :D

 

Cat 3

Lockdown. I like the old movie line one that was adopted in but I'd love to see a true Generations pass at him.

An actual full size pass at some of the 13 Primes. I mean the ones I'd actually want would be Vector Prime, Alpha Trion in a more classic look, Onyx if only for more dragons, Solus, ... Heck just actual versions and not some Pretender shell spark cop out.

Bulkhead

Knockout

Taking cues from other versions of Prime and Megs. I don't mind them being the G1 characters but it's nice to switch up the alt modes sometimes. I'd love Megs to get something other than Tank. Optimus getting the Armada Bod is one I do want but heck give me some other Convoys or something.

A good revamp of the BM Vehicon Generals.

Will definitely echo the want of some of the new Cyberverse characters like Wildwheel, Clobber/Lugnut, and Thunderhowl

Category 1 - G1:
 
Not a pure G1 thing, but back in the day, There was another company that had the license to the Seeker mold. They were Four Star Transistor Robots, and the called the toys Phantom F-15. They made a black and red seeker and a White and blue seeker. We had that White and Blue seeker growing up, and it was awesome. I would love to see the Earthrise mode in those colors. I am tempted to get another starscream to paint in those colors.

Here is a picture to show you what I mean:

I always imagine him to be a heroic Autobot as a kid, and I think that it would be cool if he became an official TF.
 

 
That toy is pretty gorgeous. 

I had that toy as a kid. It was cool.

Also Predaking, that toy was definitely not licensed. It was a knock off. :)

I was unaware of it. Like I said, I knew that they were quite prolific back in the day so I assumed it was a licensed toy.

Man OK..... Cat 1.... I really don't know. At this point anything G1 I want I have in some form or is upcoming soon. At this point if I like the way it looks I buy it, but the last year has been pretty easy for me to skip the new releases mostly due to not really needing another iteration of a G1 character..

I would like to see some more far out Desgins for OP, honestly, I felt Siege Op was a missed chance to really do something alien and they played it safe on both figures of OP, the leader mimicing Cybertron series OP, while the voyager just said that OP already been to Earth and come back again and not needing to really hide, parts have been replaced as he weathers various battles, I would of love to see a voyager take on the WFC video game OP, I think the deluxe we got some years ago is a pretty intersting desgin for OP, even the War Within OP desgin is pretty intersting to look at, if anything, I think those desgins would of been a lot smarter choice but then the Geneartions line is kind of evolving into another Studio series at the mo and I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing?
