    What is up all the Season 3 Autobot love from 3rd parties?

    granted the Cast of season 3 is great but there has been a lot of love for these recently.

    Ultra Magnus/City Commander-Fansproject
    Rodimus Prime/Protector-Fansproject
    Springer/WarBot Defender-Fansproject
    Kup/ The replacement heads- Igear

    and now Arcee from Perfect Effect looking all sorts of Badass

    Where's the awesome season 3 Decepticon 3rd party stuff?

    ^ How do you improve on Universe Cyclonus and Generations Scourge? The TCC is handling the Battlechargers. Trypticon is a little big. There are a couple official options for a Galvatron. Universe Ratbat may be a redeco but it is still wicked awesome, even if it's a different design.

    Aside from that, most of the Season 3 'cons were holdovers from Season 2. Heck, Starscream got two episodes despite being dead.

    As for why the Autobot love, it's answered by the fact that these are very popular characters (due to being in the movie) that Hasbro didn't do or didn't do "right." As for Arcee, there are multiple unofficial ones because there is an unforgivable lack of an official one.

    Because there doesn't seem to be really much notable season 3 Decepticons that could actually be doable and still stay at a decent price for people to actually buy. Galvatron, Octane, Cyclonus, and Scourge already made by Hasbro (latter two having extremely good toys, some of the best in the Classics line), someone's already doing a Sixshot and I think Predaking...can't think of much else.

    But it's funny you say that because I think 3rd parties are unintentionally filling out Decepticons more than Autobots; just not for season 3. PE Shadow Warrior, Laserbeak/Buzzsaw, Ratbat, Reflector, FP Shrapnel, Bombshell, Kickback, Swindle, Blast Off, TFC Constructicons, etc.

    I imagine it's probably easier to pull off weird futuristic alt modes than normal, everyday ones. You don't have to worry about accuracy when the car you're making doesn't really exist.

    Or it may just be because season 3 had all the best characters. :p

    I'd pay some buxx for a nice third party Galvatron, since all Hastakomy seems to want to do is either:

    1. Repaint Megatron

    or

    2. Give us horrible Galvatron toys.
