    The Transformers Bot Shots toys seem to be kind of cheesy but also quite cool (to those who are fans of them, anyway). I don't yet have any of them, but I'm looking forward to collecting as many as I can.

    So here's a question to us Transformers fans who think the Bot Shots toys are kind of interesting: Who would you like to see as a Bot Shots figure? This is meant to be kind of silly, kind of serious. Noting character rivalries that could be shown in this toyline, fun characters who would be interesting to have this kind of treatment - stuff like that.

    An idea I've really thought about is a 3-pack of Ironhide, Crankcase, and Crowbar - the DotM action scene of Ironhide crashing into those two Dreads is basically the Bot Shots toyline on the big screen. : D

    And to help this thread a little bit, here's the list of known Bot Shots toys, current and upcoming: Bot Shots - Transformers Wiki

    Ratchet. Jetfire, the real Jetfire, with the beard. Roadbuster to go with Topspin. Strika. Chromedome. Brainstorm. Ultra Magnus that's not an Optimus redeco.

    All three Wreckers based off the movieverse characters. So far we've already seen Topspin; I just want Roadbuster and Leadfoot.

    A lot of these are pretty cool ideas - I didn't exactly expect some of you folks to immediately give long character lists for this. : D

    However, I'm not exactly sure how they'd approach some characters with beast modes (such as Grimlock or the Insecticons; ideally, though, a Bot Shots toy of Rattrap could perhaps be of his Transmetal self, so that would seem kind of possible).

    Pretty much the whole Prime cast. That said, Arcee, Knockout, Breakdown and Bulkhead are the ones I want the most.
