No, It was based on Mudflap's, not identical

Something of recent years I wanna see: REAL figures of Heatwave, Chase, Blades, and Boulder. Their current toys have no articulation at all and, while their transformation scheme gimmicks are ingenious for their intended age groups, their toys aren't as much fun for us older collectors. I want to own show-accurate figures of the Rescue Bots with full articulation.

You hear me, Hasbro? Do it! Make''em in Prime-style, if you have to. Just make it happen and take my money!

And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development.

First up on the list: A show-accurate G1 Galvatron!
None exist! the only G1 Galvatrons are the '86 one, and the Universe Tank! which looks nothing like him!


Oh yeah, I really want an accurate G1 Galvatron figure, as well as accurate G1 Scourge and G1 Cyclonus (though those may already be out there, not sure), just so I can have a collection of the classic Heralds (hmm, might need a few Sweeps as well). :twisted:
I also want to see a show accurate Prime Unicron. :twisted:

More maybe to come later.

Nonsense. Hasbro's well aware of their product reaching above and beyond their intended target audience (the whole Transformers franchise in and of itself is geared primarily towards kids anyway; we are adults and teenagers collecting children's toys). There's no harm in them making Deluxe class figures for those four. Why, Hasbro could very easily capitalize on such an idea, as it would only bring in more money for them.

And, if these four were to ever crossover with the Prime cartoon, they'd have to have some kind of altered look to better fit the art style of that show. And any new look they get from Prime animation models could be translated into toy form, giving both age groups a chance to own a satisfying version of these characters each.

I'd like to see Generations Slipstream (from WfC), Moonracer, and Sparkcrusher (probably a retool/repaint of Warpath - who was awesome in Generations line)

Animated Omega Supreme would have been awesome, as would have been ANY more animated toys at all.

Stunticons need more releases as combiners in any line as well :<

And as Sabrblade pointed out, more Beast Wars characters getting redone would also be acceptable and/or awesome! Mostly because I missed out greatly on BW and never had the chance to get alot of them.

As for G1, I'd like to see at least deluxe treatments of most of the little guys like Cosmos and Pipes. I mean cmon! They rereleased every one of the Universe legends that were in that hard to find wave with Cosmos except for COSMOS as exclusives to different stores (like target sparkcrusher - warpath mold and walmart - rodimus)

I know these have been made, but they need wider release: The RTS LEGENDS: Especially Optimus Prime :<

Something I'd like to see is an Armada 10th aniversary line where they take all the darn gimmicks out of the figures and give them some proper articulation

Or even if the could find a way to keep some of them and still make them great figures

For example
You can't have Armada Starscream without his back cannons, they're an iconic weapon of his!
But you could get rid of Hot Shot's back cannon, he never used it!

Keep some of the weapons but nix the Mini-Con activation part of the gimmick (have a button or a switch make the weapons pop out), as the internal gears and such that linked the powerlinx ports to the weaponry inhibited the articulation. Same weapons, but less internal workings to allow for more articulation.

As for the Mini-Cons themselves, just do what Energon did (and what most toys do nowadays anyway) by having only non-functioning powerlinx ports to attach them onto without having to trigger some effect.
