    We're getting some really cool comic characters as toys at the end of this year.

    Drift
    Darkmount - Straxus
    Hailstorm - Mindset

    Are there any more out there that I've missed?

    What other comic characters would you like to see?

    Well.... it's not quite the same as getting a whole new mold, but the MP-08X King Grimlock repaint was a big love letter to the comics.

    Straxus was a decent start in my book. If they really want to impress me, how about the Impactor so many have been dreaming about for years? Follow it up eventually with G2 Jhiaxus (MORE G2 LOVE!), IDW's Nova Prime, even Xaaron.

    Personally I see Hailstorm more as one of those "Hey, let's make this random vehicle from the movie into a Transformer" toys rather than a comic homage. I like it when they do that. He looks like the things from the "Enemy target, top of pyramid! Engage, engage, engage!" scene. But whatever.

    And I'd like to see a comic character that was just recently brought up in another thread made into a new toy - Dinobot Paddles.

    I just saw that thread and I thought the same thing: I want Paddles!!!

    Yeah, but Bludgeon was already a toy back in the G1 days, so it's not like he's unique to the comics.

    Yeah, I can definitely see that they are both missile-launcher tanks with very little else in common at all.

    (yeah yeah, the launchers end up on the back in both - oooOOOOOoooh. :)  )

    Also, I know there was an original G1 Thunderwing toy, but am I the only one who thinks he deserves an updated Universe toy, say... Leader Sized? :D

    Thunderwing really needs an update. I'm liking the idea of more pretender shells receiving robot makeovers.

    My life will not be complete until we get a Leader Sentinel Prime figure, as depicted in the IDW comics.
