    The more I read and look at IDW's re-designs of some of our more ionic G1 characters, I cant help but to say, damn, I want a plastic representation of that. Seeing Prowl Sunstreaker and to a certain extent, Jetfire (even though it was reverse. Jetfire was designed before Stormbringer and Don just took the design but whatever), I wonder if this trend would continue. It would solve alot of problems like Fort Max or example. Damn well he cant be a huge warship/city anymore, so lets take his IDW form and make him a Voyager. Who else agrees?

    Mind sharing what IDW Fort Max's alt mode is, for those of us that didn't get the Cyclonus comic?

    I agree with your idea, though - a lot of the IDW redesigns are really good, and I'm glad to see that Prowl is for the most part based on his design in the comics. Of course, I've wanted fairlady bros based on the new Z ever since they didn't make them for the Alternators line.

    Well, at least one exists in toy form, since IDW, um, "borrowed" Wheelie's spotlight design from a japanese model kit.

    I'd like the see the F-22 seekers, but then that'd look pretty much like Energon Energon Starscream who I got in the mail just the other day...

    I'd be cool if we got toys of characters that haven't gotten toys yet.

    I can think of two names off the top of my head that would make some prime toys.
