    I know, headmaster powermasters and such are on the horizon. Is there any talks/rumors of any 3P team taking on a larger scale project like a city, space base or fortress? I don't know if this has been discussed already (if so please link me!) .

    X-Transbots teased the names of it's upcoming toys, and one was called "XP-2 The Big City" We still have no idea what character it represents, but the XP series are add-ons.

    Also, Headrobots is making Black King, that turns Cybertron Dark Scorponok into Black Zarak.

    Yes that, and classics version of them would also be awesome.

    Actually, I think the combiners teams are far from being covered. So far, they've taken care of (or hinted at) the heavy hitters, but there's still quite a bit to be done.

    They aren't exactly covered, just slightly addressed sort of. I believe every company should really take a strong effort to build the same character to give people like me various choices as a buyer

    Still wishing TFC did Omega Supreme instead of Superion. It would make more sense too. Omega fits into the Greek motif they have with Hercules, and he was Devastator's rival in the G1 Cartoon. And at least we have some form of Classics Superion (FP kit + ROTF set) but we don't have any Omega Supreme yet.

    I have to agree with these guys. The past year has been so about Devastator that I don't even like Devastator as a character as much as I did before.

    Agreed. They can move onto bigger & better things once a 3rd party steps up & produces Raiden. :)

    I would like to see a Omega or Metroplex re-incarnation with the FP's treatment. I like their aesthetics.

    I love this idea. TFC might actually get my money if they went in that direction.

    Toyworld taking on Galvatron would be great, they would be my choice 3rd party to take on the project. They did an amazing job with Hegemon.

    I want samurai pizza cats figures. Oops wrong site.... Wait is there a site for that?

    Anyway. I would have I wanted better more articulated headmasters but FP seems to be handling that so I'll trust them to do a good job.

    I would LOVE to see a new take on the beast wars figures or at least the Transmetals. As shiny as those toys were some of them were kinda terrible in robot mode (I'm looking at you rattrap)

    Lastly... ORIGINAL characters, I loved where FP was going with SteelCore and I'm glad to find out there not planning to redeco him as a homage character. I think most of us on here came from a generation with a lot of imagination and the toys (at least for me) were a physical representation of the characters I was making up story's about in my head. Sure they may not be "TFs" but a cool transforming robot is a cool transforming robot.

    I was thinking of something more upscale, something is bigger than Galvatron and even Raiden. A city would be awesome, something that has multiple components. I would not mind a Trypticon or maybe even Skylink down the road.
