    Out of all of the Transformers figures we've seen for the past 28 years, which mold or molds would you like to see reused in some form wether it be a simple repackaging, a redeco, or a remold?

    For me, I'd like to see some figures from the RID and Cybertron lines brought back.

    As for RID, I'd really like to see a remold of X-Brawn as Ironhide. I think the build for X-Brawn including the giant forearm would make a great representation for Ironhide considering both characters are supposed to be rugged, tough characters.

    I'd also like to see Beast Machines Ultra-class Jetstorm get redecoed or remolded as Starscream. Now while this isn't technically a mold from RID, it's Deluxe-class counterpart did get two repaints within the line, which were Storm Jet and Jihaxus. I really do like Jet Storm's overall appearance which I think was made even better looking when he was redecoed as Cyclonus.

    I'd really like to see the yellow redeco of Robots In Disguise Optimus Prime from Sam's Club released as well.

    I think that Cybertron Optimus Prime is probably the second best Optimus Prime to be produced. While I don't have anything against the Classics version, I just feel that Cybertron Prime has a much cleaner look to him since he has less kibble hanging off him. And because he looks so much like an updated version of the G1 version, I wouldn't mind seeing him redecoed to look more like that counterpart.

    The forearms could be colored red instead of blue. The trailer could be made gray or silver instead of red. And I think the head could even be retooled to look a little more like G1 Prime. Personally, I'd like to see the head look a little like Alternity Convoy's because it has a similar aesthetic to the Cybertron line while still being it's own thing.

    I know there are probably more I had in mind, but I'm not going to spend too much time trying to think of some more.

    I'd like to see Hasbro reuse the Cybertron Dirt Boss mold for something. Vastly under appreciated figure and I feel a lot of people just don't realize what a nice deluxe they missed out on.

    I really want RTS Lugnut to be used for something else, because it's a great mold, but it wouldn't work as anything but Lugnut.

    I also suddenly have this really vivid thought of a new-head Mindwipe as Star Saber, sword included, don't ask me why

    Well, they are making a Blaster repaint for FoC Soundwave. Though it would be nice to have a deluxe, I guess.


    I am 100% down for this, although they would have to do a fair amount of remolding in order for it to look right.


    Personally, I'd love to see Universe Hot Shot in his Armada "powerlinx" paint scheme.
