    GDO Classics Lazerbeak: some like him, but many others don't accept him as a Classics Lazerbeak- myself included.

    I'll agree that it's a fine redeco... just not Lazerbeak.

    So for those who don't like this mold as Lazerbeak, allow me to ask: what else would you have in mind?

    Hasbro has just assigned you the task of designing a more proper Classics Lazerbeak, and neither the original G1 toy or the current GDO will be accepted.

    What is it you design?

    What's wrong with the upcoming FOC toy that turns into Tron's hat box?

    Masterpiece?

    IDK, just something bundled with another toy will work, like they did with Hound. Right now I'm using PE.

    If I could make my own Soundwave and minions figures, here's how I'd do it:

    Soundwave: Deluxe class (or, given the downsizing, maybe Voyager), turns into a Scion xB (or lookalike) outfitted as a DJ van similar to in Animated; color scheme and robot mode are very G1-ish

    Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, and Ratbat: 1st two are same molds, and Ratbat is a remold; all three are Scout class, and transform from robot birds/bats into drone jets; they can also combine in vehicle mode to for a larger jet

    Ravage: Scout class; transforms from a 3-wheeled motorcycle similar to Speed Stars/Stealth Force Knock Out into a robotic cat

    Rumble and Frenzy: Same as their RTS figures

    FoC version, but the G1 version and especially the Masterpiece version will always be #1

    I was a fan of the GDO version as an updated Laserbeak until more knowledgeable fans than I pointed out the Booster X10 - he pretty much takes the cake for what I'd want in a Classics Laserbeak. Having an acutal bird mode is key.

    GDO lazerbeak was ROTF skystalker mold...why were people thinking this would be "classics"? :lol 

    I mean that's like buying GDO leader starscream or ironhide expecting them to be good classics shoe ins...not gonna happen.

    As far as things you could use go, the aforementioned titanium laserbeak or cybertron laserbeak could work. The latter if you don't mind him turning into a cylinder :lol

    I will only accept a micro-casette that transforms into a condor sized sentient robot bird from the planet Cybertron.

    :D 

    The GDO version is pretty boss, but MP will be the high mark I think.
