    If you could convince Hasbro to remake one obscure character in the Universe line, who would it be? Note: by obscure I mean a character who had a very small role (if any role at all) in its particular series/cartoon.


    As for me, I'd probably say Beast Wars Torca. I never cared at all for the toy of this character, but when I saw him in the Beast Wars comic I suddenly realized how potentially awesome he could have been. First of all, he's a whale/elephant, so he needs to be at LEAST an ultra class, not a frickin' deluxe. I think the concept of his beast mode is a great idea for a fuzor. Seeing how massive he was in the comic made me really want an update of that toy, more articulate, more detailed, more enormous.

    Thanks to Kwickstrike whose sig inspired this thread.

    Not exactly one of the most obscure characters, but I think he counts, and that he needs a new mold Voyager class update badly. I would even be ok if they didn't keep the headmaster gimmick, it would be nice, but I would honestly be ok without it, just as long as he gets nice bot and alt-modes.

    I'd like a two pack of the sharkticon and the allicon.

    Or a boxed set of the Quintesson tribunal.

    I have fond memories of playing with Crossblades. I think he was the only non-classic Pretender I had. I'd love to see if they could pull off an articulated transforming human shell as well as a articulated robot to go inside.

    I'd like a Straxus figure, with removable head and life support. That amount of butt that would kick would be obscene.

    One of the three Targetmasters I had as a kid (and recently picked up again), Quake, Quickmix or Landfill. They did Cyclonus as a Targetmaster in pretty slick fashion, so I think it'd be fun to see more updated interpretations. I just name those three because they're the ones I had, though others would be cool too. Plus, Quickmix could be an easy repaint for Mixmaster and Quake could be turned into any other tank character (G2 Megatron, Brawl again, Galvatron again but better) with a little tweaking.

    Afterburner. I always loved his cool futuristic alt mode and asymmetrical weapons. He was a really cool toy and I'd really like to see an updated version.

    Believe me, if the phrasing would have been ANY character, I would have been on Unicron like something that really wants something else on something else. I just didn't feel that Unicron was that .... obscuriffic :lol
