    Call me crazy, but for some reason I think it would be cool if Hasbro decided to take the Hall of Fame guys and give each of them a totally revamped toy, new mold, non-updated alt mode (like G1 Prime as his original cab), super paint detail, maybe some Die-Cast, sold at a higher price in like a Masterpiece-esque box, or a special stand like the FE Prime line, but better. Make them either Voyager sized, or half-way between Deluxe and Voyager. Likely only sold online due to them being somewhat high-end. True, they'd be kinda pricey, but I personally think it would be kinda cool. What about you?

    As interesting as it is, I smell a Hasbro version of Mattycollector.

    Or just make the MP line being for HoF TF characters only. The HoF is mainly a collectors event and the MP is mainly for the collectors, perfect match IMO.

    I think I'd rather see small (deluxe-sized), non-transforming statues similar to this. Would probably be far more screen-accurate to the characters than an actually transforming figure.

    I like the idea but G1 Bumbleee would be problematic due to VW's refusing to license the G1 alt mode.

    Why would it be G1 Bumblebee? HoF characters pretty much locks in all versions of the character. So it would probably Animated or Movie era Bumblee, though G1 Pre Earth Bumblbee could pop up.

    Would never happen with a new mold.

    Repaint? Sure, IF they could find an outlet for it. New mold? nope.

    That being said, I don't think it's a good idea. The hall of fame would turn into a fandom-wide screaming match to try and decide who deserves a new toy the most.

    Nah. While it would be cool, so far the only character in the HoF who is a big G1 name but lacks a Classics update is Soundwave. Waspinator is also included if the G1 requirement is lifted. Not really interested in getting another version of a G1 character who I have avaliable Classics versions.

    I think this is a cool idea. I definitely echo some of the concerns though. For one, it would without a doubt turn into a "who deserves the classics update more" fight in the Fandom. I'd love to see HasTak say though that any character in the HOF is eligible for a MP treatment, but again, that even won't happen. I don't care who you are how you feel about the subject, a MP Erector would kick the fucking door down, blow the sun up, and create total awesomeness!

    Would be cool if the hall of fame was taken seriously, but with bots like erector? Naaah.

    From the Classics not G1 thread.
    I agree.

    Was just thinking about it-instead of the fandom fighting, maybe, just maybe, it'll give us a chance to pick who DOES get a classics toy lol
