    Like the title of the thread ask am I the only one who really wants an Autobot X toy??? Ever since I watched G1 again a little while ago I've really wanted one even if it transforms into a jumbled mess for some reason I think it would be kind of cool for its uniqueness. Heck as a bonus they could even write the bio to link it to Beastwars Rampage...

    What they need to have is have a build-a-figure with the figure being Autobot X.

    That would be cool especially if they do it with MP figures or reissues.

    I'm going to have to check it out now thanks.

    A build-a-figure would be cool. It's just that there's no market for the character, considering it was a one-off character from on episode of the G1 cartoon. Kids don't know who it is, so why are they supposed to care about buying all the figures to assemble the character, which is the whole point of a BAF?

    If Autobot X or something akin comes up in Prime, then sure. But now? Not gonna happen.

    I understand that KID's aren't going to know who the character is but with Takara releasing more MP's or potential reissues which cater more to collectors a build kit may go over rather well IMO.

    Ideally even though he didn't transform in G1 the first time I watched the episode I thought immediately of BW's Protoform X/Ravage and created my own back story of Soundwave somehow capturing Autobot X and did some experiments which became Protoform X.

    I don't know I was just wondering if I was alone one this...

    Ahh... Sorry, as you may be able to tell from my join date I just got back into Transformers and up until recently I haven't done much besides watch the shows so I'm not familiar at all with the history that goes on off screen. Thanks for the info though.

    Edit. Yea as soon as you mentioned it I searched radicons and found it... Dude has some serious skill I HIGHLY doubt Takara or Hasbro could have done it better.

    Transmutate got a build-a-figure. Why not a pack-in Classics Autobot X?

    No. Stupid non-transformable transformers/transformer frankensteins are stupid.

    SG Tracks should have been based off of Autobot X.

    Save Road Rage/Diaclone Tracks for a TFCC Freebie figure.

    I would probably buy it, but if they could put out a transformable BAF that would be sick

    You took the idea right out of my head. I wouldn't out right buy an Autobot X figure, but even a non-transformable BAF like what they did with Transmutate I could get behind.

    <----This guy wants one. I wouldn't care if it didn't transform, either.

    To those saying that that's what customizers are for, I have two rebuttals:

    1. Some of us can't do customs worth a crap.

    2. Others of us can't afford the high cost of commissioned customs.

    I recon a revoltech figure would be about right. They could also bring the Ratchet / Megatron accident to (un)llife :D

    I'd love one.

    I'm half-assedly customizing one myself. I say half-assedly because I've got all the parts figured out from various Classics Deluxe figures, but I've put almost zero work putting them all together yet. It's been sitting on my work desk in pieces for months.
