    What's the best new case Hasbro could ever come out with that would cause a gigantic fansplosion or would shatter the very world as we know it?

    Reason and marketing rationale are excluded here.

    Rules: stick to deluxe class.
    8 figures in a wave.

    My contributions:

    Generations 2012

    Wave 1

    2x Arcee (to be repainted into the rest of the G1 bots like Elita-1 etc)
    2x Trailbreaker
    2x New Junkion (Nancy!)
    2x Camshaft (Omniboty goodness)

    Wave 1 Revision 1

    1x Arcee
    1x Trailbreaker
    1x Hoist
    1x Wfc Brawn
    2x NEW SEEKER MOLD

    Wave 2
    8x Junkion sampler

    etc...

    If you want a fansplosion (as in collector...splosion?), I suggest an idea I've posted before:

    A G1 collector based subscription/online sale line (like Mattel is doing for MotUC, but with a better online solution), focused on combiners and other collector favorites.
    One combiner part/limb each month, resulting in two full combiners in one year, plus two (or one if Devastator would be part of it) bonus figures (for example classics Arcee and a proper Ultra Magnus or maybe even G2/SG/whatever repaints of earlier figures)
    Either deluxe/voyager, or scout/deluxe. The engineering and detailing would be far better than hasbro's mass release figures, because they could price them quite a bit higher when the focus is on "adult collectors". The production numbers would be a lot lower, of course, but there are many repaint possibilities which could be released in mass down the line.


    That would last at least 5 years, not including repaints or anything other than Scramble City combiners + Devastator and Predaking.
    A collector can dream :eek: 


    Edit:
    Sorry, I didn't read the rules properly :tongue:

    I am serious though. having waves of combiner limbs are a sure fire way for fandom to explode. Its the thing that almost everyone looks forward to. Combiners.

    1x Reflector
    1x Ratbat
    2x Slipstream
    2x Arcee
    2x Cybertronian Ultra Magnus (based on WfC Prime)

    My list has 3 retools and 2 new molds, and equally balanced betweed A's and D's. But to expect Slipstream and Arcee in the same case is what makes this list pure fantasy, lol.

    I was serious as well. :) 
    I'm far from a business expert, but I think they could make money on my suggestion. By gearing it towards collectors they could charge more, spend more on the engineering/design AND they would have a ton of molds for future (more affordable) repaints.

    Deluxe:
    2 x Electro (remold of Kup with new head, hood and weapon)
    2 x Swoop (new mold)
    2 x Arcee (new mold)
    2 x Senator Ratbat (Scourge remold)

    Voyager:
    2 x Soundwave (new mold with a cassette alt-mode and ability to store G1 cassettes. ... hey, the entire point of the thread is to dream crazy big, right?)
    1 x Hooligan (redeco of Classics Jetfire)
    1 x Rumble & Frenzy (with the figures either unlabeled, or with the box contradicting itself on who is who). Possibly include a redeco of Booster X10 as Buzzsaw if they want to feel generous.
    2 x Grimlock (new mold)
    2 x Galvatron (new mold)

    Tried to go with a good balance of things I want (everything Soundwave related), things that are feasible (the remolds), and things that the fandom would go nuts for (Frumble, Arcee).

    ... I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I really, really want this Electro remold.
