@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

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)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

Blaster thats on scale with Soundwave

So, a Blaster (boom box) who's much larger than Soundwave (portable cassette player)?

Make a Blaster that’s Voyager scale. He doesn’t need to be much bigger. Or leader, since they aren’t much bigger, but pack in Eject, Rewind, Ramjet and Steeljaw in place of a trailer like Prime t make it worth the price and not having to track down the individual 2 packs. Save those for Rosana and Sundor.

Have they ever made Targetmasters out of Optimus' iconic gun and Megatron's fusion cannon? If not, those two.

Also the Matrix casing. The inner orb can be a separate bot (Minicon?) that can be remolded into Vector Sigma.

Could do with transforming Key to Vector Sigma too. Can be remolded into ramps really.

Also Beast Machine's Diagnostic Drone.

What other items and artifacts could be turned into Transformers?

I been thinking and concluded we need some more Quintasons, I would love for Hasbro & Takara to take the Proscutor from the movie and give him a legends sized figure where he has moving tenticals, we also need the one who pulls the lever in the movie to send the condemed to their demise into a pit full of Sharkicons, this guy:

QuintessonExecutioner.jpg

 

We also need this one done up as a toy

Quint_scientist.jpg

 

Doing the Quintasons as toys, as long they can recreate their appearance, Hasbro & Takara can go wild with the alt modes within the restaints of the character model, I mean they pulled off the judge pretty well and gave him a alt mode even thou we didn't really need one, then again these Quintasons could be prefect for the R.E.D line of none transforming figures!

If going for new always-been-there retro G1 characters, I'd like reverse versions of teams.

Decepticons Minibots ala Mini-Cons
- Wasp (vehicle from Animated)
- Ransack (Cybertron)
- Shadow Striker (Cyberverse)
- Thrust (Beast Machines)
- Obsidian (Beast Machines)
- Nickel (Lost Light ScAvenger)

Autobot Insecticons ala Bugbots
- Drillbit (BW)
- Powerpinch (BW)
- Retrax (BW)

Decepticon Technobots ala Mechacons
- Scalpel (movie verse)
- Knockout (Prime)
- Airachnid (Prime)
- Tarantulas (BW)
- Six Shot (Energon)
- combine to form, I dunno, Virusor?

Magical Girl Super Power Transformation Princess Eco Guardian K/55 Popstar Rangers (with dance action)
- Windblade for Aero-Sault!
- Chromia for Detonator!
- Novastar for Fire Force!
- Nautica for Tidal Blast!
- Botanica for Land Laser!
- combine to form, er, Centuria?

In terms of 80s stuff that hasn't been in the WFC trilogy or SS '86 yet...

 

  • Skids
  • Some new Insecticons and Deluxe Insecticons
  • Deluxe Autobots
  • Throttlebots designed like the Battlechargers!!!
  • Skids
  • The rest of the Dinobots (probably coming in SS86)
  • Blaster and the Blasterboys
  • Pretenders but For Real This Time
  • A Bigger Brawn
  • Skids
  • Wreck-Gar and Junkions
  • A Misfire reissue
  • Those other Targetmasters I guess
  • SKIDS

 

And for Beast Wars, frankly I'm excited for anything, especially for non-show characters. 

And more bone guys.

And Skids.

Not yet another repaint as Cindersaur (Even if I admittedly would still by another one). Do them all from one new base mould á la the Monsterbots or Decepticon Targetmasters.

FIRECONS

Oh, and more Micromaster Combiners - even if it has to be just the same pair endlessly repainted...

Hey, did Minimus Ambus transform in the comics?

A Decepticon load-bearer would be interesting or their version of the Magnus Armor. Could have a mini Megatron Minitron piloting it.

Ooooh an actual purple Sphinx Decepticon. So Skylynx could have a playmate.

A tiny version of Skylynx would be fun too. Pretend he got hit by a shrink ray and watch him fly around complaining and make a pest of himself, just like a cat with wings.

Would like Countdown upgraded to a deluxe. That way, I could afford him. Getting him from Omega Supreme was too much.

Hey, did Minimus Ambus transform in the comics?
 

The Functionist version did in MTMTE issue 35 but that was his medium form, his smaller form never did.

He could work as a Ultra Pretender I suppose, Leader class Maximus Ambus, a Voyager robot with a inner Legend/Core class robot and Modulator armor applied.

Voyager class would be the Brainmasters and Mega pretenders.

Been asking for this forever -- a Battle Masters multipack like the Target exclusive Micros!

 

Bonus if it includes and milks some new tooling (even just some alternate weapon bits like a single barrel for the Firedrive mold and a proper single barrel for the Blowpipe mold rather than one-and-a-half) that they could also use elsewhere. But they seem to have stopped using them elsewhere, so.

 

I also want another Selects pack of cassettes. Glit, Buzzsaw, Howlback, Garboil, Enemy, "Mystery of Convoy" Ratbat... (an Autobot set can be done once Blaster and the Autotunes get made.)

Omega is getting reissued early in 2021, you could try and get one then, he is a desent figure, thou Countdown also a nice little figure! A small Skylynx, that would be intersting.

 

Load bearer for the cons, I think they would need a brand new character for that but in terms of desgin, prehaps a altered verison of Magnus, instead of being a car transporter, a con that carries missile launchers and other long range weaponary, just to be different but not different enough that Hasbro has to go and desgin a brand new figure when they could retool the CW Ultra Magnus!

To expand on an idea someone put forward in the... Earthrise thread, I think: I'd love to see a continuation of the Modulator/Baseformer concept as a full-on line - maybe self-contained, so it doesn't step on the toes of fans who prefer the current scale standard. Instead of the Modulators being 'normal' Cybertronian size, they'd be Titan-esque, with the Micromasters now being the 'normal' Cybertronian instead. Call it 'Transformers: Battlegrounds' or something.

 

Micromasters would come in 2 or 4-packs; 2-packs would be comprised of Siege/Earthrise-style duos that combine into weapons that the Modulators can wield, while 4-packs can be a mix of returning Micromaster teams, Micromaster-sized versions of old and new characters, and troop-builders. The latter two could be something like:

  • Autobot Ark Vanguard - Jazz, Mirage, Prowl, and Smokescreen
  • Autobot Autotrooper Squad
  • Decepticon Enforcer Unit - Barricade, Stockade, Crankcase, and Treadshot
  • Decepticon Vehicon Squad

Scout/Core class would be comprised of canonically 'larger than deluxe' characters. It would essentially be what the current Voyager class is to Deluxes, and contain well-known faces like Starscream and Soundwave. Like the Modulators, they'd also be able to wield the duo Micromaster weapon modes.

 

Deluxes would be comprised of Modulators like Ironworks, and also be based on previous Micromaster playsets. Something like:

  • Hightower (crane truck/construction site)
  • Overload (car transport/mobile combat barricade)
  • Flattop (aircraft carrier/flying battle platform)
  • Roughstuff (weapons transport truck/weapons platform)

Voyagers would be made up of two types of releases: a single, larger Modulator based on the Micromaster Combiner Transports:

  • Retrosurge (missile transport/missile launch platform)
  • Terrorhead (artillery truck/cannon emplacement)

...and a 2-pack consisting of a Core-class figure and a Deluxe-class Modulator that it can tow in vehicle mode:

  • Optimus Prime and Apex (trailer/field headquarters)
  • Megatron and Clobber (weapons platform/mobile assault base)

Leaders would call back to the larger Micromaster bases:

And if I can dream: Titan class Broadside, who transforms this time into a massive Helicarrier-style carrier, with storage space for Micromasters and dozens of guns that can be manned by said Micromasters in Broadside's vehicle, base and robot modes. :)

I would like to see Pretenders without shells along the lines of ROTF Bludgeon. Their vehicle modes would be more or less the same and the robot modes could resemble their shells to an extent, i.e. Iguanus could have a very reptilian robot head but not a full out lizard monster one.

For that matter, I want a new Bludgeon toy.

If RED continues on, I'd definitely want and even expect to see the Pretenders there. They'll always have the Seekers and existing expected names to milk for redecos and such, but there should be room for stuff that lends itself so we'll to non-transforming toys.

I really like Susp's idea for mainline stuff too.

To expand on an idea someone put forward in the... Earthrise thread, I think: I'd love to see a continuation of the Modulator/Baseformer concept as a full-on line - maybe self-contained, so it doesn't step on the toes of fans who prefer the current scale standard. Instead of the Modulators being 'normal' Cybertronian size, they'd be Titan-esque, with the Micromasters now being the 'normal' Cybertronian instead. Call it 'Transformers: Battlegrounds' or something.
 

I think I remember mulling over something like this at some point? But this is way more thought than I put into it, awesome!

I just love the idea of the micro play play-pattern being committed to more or less full time. Take over the "Legends Class" collecting niche, with occasional traditional-scale releases via Selects and whatnot to keep that going.

Give us a wide range of retoolable, remixable molds, and more and more complex bases and cities from each size class. It's a radical shift, but it could also be a radical shift!
