    It has been documented in I believe the Q & A's with Hasbro and interviews in ToyFare magazine that Hasbro does indeed visit fan sites and messageboards such as TFW2005.

    They seriously take the fans wants and desires into account when it comes to the TF toylines.

    So lets make it easy on Hasbro and their design team. Lets put all of the TFs that we want to see made in one thread so that they can easily look them up when they visit our site.

    So list the TFs that you want to see so we can help give them some ideas and a nice easy package with a bow on it (this thread.) to view those ideas.

    There are no boundaries on what you would like to list but, we should probably TRY to limit them to actual toylines that are out there right now.....I.E. Universe, Animated, and The Movie Line.

    So I'll start.....here's my list:

    Animated Cyclonus
    Animated Rodimus Prime
    Animated Omega Supreme
    Animated Constructicons
    Universe Red Alert
    Universe Thundercracker
    Universe Dirge
    Universe Thrust
    Masterpiece Grimlock--USA RELEASE


    I put everyone's favorite seekers on my list because in the most recent Q & A with Hasbro, they said the three Japanese exclusive seekers could be released in the USA because they helped TakaraTomy design them.

    So let's see your list. Assume that Eric, Bill or even Derrick Wyatt are looking at this thread.....because they probably are. Now's your chance to get your message across.

    THANKS for posting!!!

    That's not what this thread is meant to be. I'd like it to be more of a "Message to Hasbro" thread because they do look at TF fan sites and messageboards.

    Animated/Universe Autobot triplechangers. (there's a certain sketch on the boards which can give them Springer and Sandstorm as well as repainting and remolding Tidal Wave as Broadside. There you go, Hasbro, you have your three Autobot triple-changers to fight off the likes of the Decepticon triple-changers like Octankor, Blitzwing, and Astrotrain)
    Cybertron Red Alert as G1 Trailbreaker.
    Universe Inferno as Hot Zone/Spot
    Universe Motormaster

    That's all for now

    While I doubt this will have a huge effect on Hasbro's decisions, the list is realistic and possible, with the Animated Constructicons and Omega Supreme the least probable at this point. Using proper grammar in your post title ("Here are" rather than "here's") may help you get taken more seriously. I'll add a full-sized Universe Deszras (or Deathsaurus, or Dessaras, or Clyde) and that some of the other Dinobots be given the Universe treatment.

    No they haven't.......perhaps I should've specified a little better. In the last Q & A, Hasbro was talking about releasing the TakaraTomy versions of Dirge and Thrust with the remolded wings (different wings than the BotCon versions.) because they helped design them.

    Out of all the S3 characters revealed, Cyclonus is probably the least deserving of an new Animated toy considering he got an excellent Universe toy that honestly doesn't look all that different. (Same for Hotshot who is getting a Universe toy soon.)

    They already mentioned in the recent Q&A that they wanted to make a toy for Animated Rodimus Prime. (No idea how far they've gotten.)

    Thanks for the lessons on the english language..........I keed I keed. :D 

    I wrote "here's" which is the contraction for "here is". I did this to save space on my thread title because I was afraid i was going to run out of space. (I actually did run out of space a couple of times before I ended up with this thread title.)

    I agree....this is very true. But, a guy can dream can't he? Also, where the heck is your list? Isn't there any characters you want to be made into an Animated, Universe, or Movie figures?:)

    I like to think about what can be done with the molds we know about.

    - Universe Inferno ---> Grapple
    - Universe Dinobot ---> BW Grimlock (Yes, SPOTS AND ALL.)
    - Universe Cyclonus ---> Armada Drone (Don't know what to call them, but basically the "mass-produced" versions of Cyclonus. The blue and brown ones.)
    - Universe Onslaught ---> ROADBLOCK! Seriously. He's got the cowcatchers, the double cannon...it's OBVIOUS.

    Hasbro already knows that we as a collective basically want everything to be made eventually. If you really want to help them figure out what the fans want most, it should come in the form of several "Hey Hasbro, look at this" polls.

    One poll for season one autobots to be made in Universe. One for decepticons. Another for season 2 autobots and another for season 2 decepticons. And so on. And then polls for the autobot we'd most like to see in Animated and then which decepticon....

    All that would at least give Hasbro a "most-wanted" list; a starting point for the bots that the majority of fans are most interested in seeing.
