    Whether it be thru liscensed means or 3rd party company means.

    Doesn't matter if it made it past discussion,art sketches. clay resin stage. or final test shot stage.

    Not a cancelled repaints or remolds thread. this is a cancelled new mold thread.

    The cancelled Transformers list of cancelled toys from recent years. That I am aware of is.

    Takara Voyager sized Jetfire. that was suspose to form armor parts for 2007 voyager movie optimus Prime.

    ROTF Leader or supreme size Tidalwave.

    Animated season 3 Megatron. leader sized toy that was a tripple changer. toy was called maruader megatron.

    Takara Beastwars Neo Unicron.

    Animated supreme sized Omega supreme. that transformed into the ark space ship.

    Alternators cadillac escalade Megatron.

    Titanium 6 inch, Shockwave,Arcee,Cosmos,WW Bumblebee.

    Rumored Titanium 6 inch G-1 1986 Styled Galvatron.

    Those late 1980's cancelled basic or deluxe size Pretenders.

    I quite like that Orange and black coloured Energon Optimus Prime.

    But I'm still a little disappointed they didn't go with the idea of giving Prime's drones to Scourge and him getting new drones #ed 5to8 It's a decade later and I'm still a bit miffed there is no Superlink/Energon Superbase Scourge toy.

    I'd buy that.

    I've never heard of this. Is it an actual thing?

    If Hasbro would release the rest of Animated, both what was made and release in Japan and what was never made. I'll say nice things about Miko for 45 seconds.

    I'm sure we all have at least one cancelled toy we dream of seeing one day.

    Of those that at least saw prototypes, I think TFA Hot Shot is the one I'd most like to see.

    Special mention for Titanium Shockwave.

    I actually was hopping for Animated Hotshot to get released, but alas it will never see the light of day.

    All cancelled toys deserves the chance to be released.

    Generations line or Transformers Club Subscription Services would be a nice place to have those releases.

    I don't recall there ever being a ROTF Tidalwave. You sure that isn't speculation?
    Also, the Animated Omega Supreme that was made was a fan custom, Hasbro never showed an official Supreme sized one. I'd also like to add the TransTech toys to this list. Those definitely deserve a chance to be released. The few designs we saw were freaking amazing.

    Uhuh, this one, more than Wheeljack or Soundwave.

    You guys clamor for the Hot Shot. I can't believe it. There's the friggin' Megatron knight jet tank triple changer prototype that was never released, and you want Hot Shot.

    Weren't there a couple other titanium figures that were never released? I remember seeing another version of prime advertised on the back of another one at toysrus.
