    Alot of the new stuff is fine and all, But some of my Favs are off the wall throwbacks like Scout Ransack the Biplane, HFTD Highbrow..

    I would LOVE to see an all new time setting for the TF universe. Of course I know it would never be done by Hasbro, But if you could pick a time period for a NEW TOY LINE to be set in, what would you pick?

    4 come to mind for me.

    Early industrial/WWI-Think Hearts of Iron, MK1 tank, Monitor, Locomotive..Like the knight morpher stuff

    WWII- Jeeps, Cannons, Shermans, Tigers, Leader class Carrier or destroyer or even a battle ship...A TF P-51 or Hellcat? Count me in.

    60's/Vietnam- Hueys, F-4 Phantoms, A-1 Skyraiders, M113's with a sprinkle of the soviet blok stuff

    Cold War- Migs, T-80's, M-60's...

    Some good old 80's inspired vehicle designs were sorely lacking from the classics lines, so that would be nice too!

    My personal idea would be prehistoric times.

    Say like make Megatron into a Spinosaurs and Prime into a Mammoth. Ironhide could be a triceratops. Starscream and the Seekers could be pterodactyls.

    Agreed, more classic cars would be great.

    I think a medieval stage on Cybertron would be quite interesting.

    This idea also rocks. Bulkhead would blatantly be an Ankylosaurus!

    All of the above!

    I guess ideally for me would be early industrial, where the alts still have modern parallels but use archaic and long-obsolete systems. Grandpa's TF as opposed to Dad's or some long distant ancestor's. Of course I'd be happy with either of those, too, but there's just something about those early unrefined machines that piques my interest.

    Reverse G1. Not like Shattered Glass, but as in the vehicle modes are swapped. For example, all of the Car Autobots would be Jets, the Aerialbots would be cars, & the Dinobots would turn into.... whatever the opposite of Dinosaurs would be. Maybe some Mammals.

    Prime as a mammoth. Why does that sound familiar..?

    WWII would be pretty neat. Imagine a Tidal Wave that transforms into the Bismarck.

    WWII-inspired toyline would be awesome. Cold War as well, I want more SR-71 goodness.

    "We'll find the German battleship that's makin' such a fuss
    We gotta sink the Bismarck cause the world depends on us
    Yeah hit the decks a runnin' boys and spin those guns around
    When we find the Bismarck we gotta cut her down"

    Now I got that song stuck in my head...

    I think the idea here is for a TOYLINE of a certain era.

    I'd like to see more Hearts of Steel! :D  From the choices presented... 60s/Vietnam. :)  Especially if we got a lot of planes as figures! :D
