    I know it's said we will never get new renditions the likes of metroplex,trypticon,scorponok fortmax or even omega supreme

    But this is all hypothetical. If they were made what would you pay?

    Me I would spend 70-80 for a leader or supreme class type figure no electronics though just well designed


    What about you guys

    Fortress Maximus was 100 dollars when he was first released, so for a bot that size and better engineered it would more around 150 to 200 dollars by todays standard.

    $50-$60. I like big bots and I cannot lie.

    200 for 1 toy or use the money toward a new game console, what option would kids and parents lean toward. The problem with Fortress sets are that they would be too big or expensive, there are better things to spend your money on. Now that I think hard about it, it would need to be Voyager sized and rely on Minicon figures, in order to be financially salable to kids.

    I wasn't so concerned with scale. with the exception of fortmax all of these were leader sized figs and interacted with scout sized figs at the largest

    I don't know, it just depends on the figure. I would almost definitely buy a WFC Trypticon and Omega Supreme

    Not something I'm interested in. I don't even like buying Leader figures much anymore because of how much room they take up. I'd rather large figures be limited to combiners. Anything bigger than that, I simply don't have the room for anymore.

    If HasTak magically created a TFA Omega Supreme for $120, I'd bite.

    But realistically, I think TF prices top off at $90 these days. I don't think any will be featured in TF Prime and I don't think generations/RtS/United would have one. HasTak has been using reissues to fill that gap such as: Omega Supreme, SkyLynx, Seacons, etc.

    If I was interested in the character, I would spend around $59.99 for a well done supreme TF.

    I'd eagerly pay $100 if they were better executed than RoTF Devestator.

    I was thinking about this the other day when I saw a similar thread. What if they made a city former out of multiple bots, like a combiner type set. There would be one larger Ultra to Leader sized main figure and the limbs would be Voyagers. They all might not form robot mode (like power core) but would have their own playability features. This way you could build up the set little by little with your budget. They are doing it with power core, so why not with a classic style "big" Transformer?

    Or a big bbot that ineracts with the pcc line like minions

    That would increase playability from a kid standpoint

    Honestly can not say I would. Big robot toys are something I rarely partake in because of size and cost.

    I would like it if they released large figures that came with a number of smaller bots that could somehow interact with the alt mode. Like an aircraft carrier that came with some plane minicons, or a city-former with in-scale cars.

    Have the City-bots connect with each other through Hotwheel style roads with Minicon interactions. That way you don't need one big bot but several voyager sized bots forming major Transformer cities.
