    remember the spychangers, I just wanted to know does anyone think
    hasbro should bring them back? there were some setbacks to them like no articulation in the legs at all, I still have about three or four of them in my collection
    does anyone else still have them?

    I've got the RiD spychangers, and for the love of god NO I don't want them brought back...after having like three sets of them in RiD, then the Universe ones, and the G1-Inspired ones, I think they should be laid to rest for quite some time. It's not that I hate them, I think they're cool little basic molds, but man...WAY overdone.

    Aren't they too light to be shot out of that launcher thing? We've tried a few times but it didn't work well.

    I've got quite a few including CR "Super" Spychangers, and unless they make new molds, don't really need any more.

    I've got all the G2 Gobots, the regular spychangers, both KB sets (albeit MISC), the G1 and Universe ones, and an extra set of the tiny tin versions. They were pretty much some of my favorite TFs growing up, and I honestly wouldn't mind Hasbro bringing them back, especially if they used those molds that never got produced.

    I love the little guys and wouldn't mind seeing more of them. I would like to see a stunticon set, dosen't have to combine or anything I would be happy with straight repaints.

    I freaking LOVE the Spychangers! and my son thinks they are the best TF's ever since he also loves his Hot Wheels so they fit right in to the "Robots In Disguise" theme when he's playing with his friends. I'd really like to see NEW car modes and maybe some new transformations (like we got with X-Brawn & Scourge). The LOC figures just don't feel the same to me...

    I have all of the R.I.D. Spychangers currently and I am looking for the Super Clear Japanese store exclusive ones for a special translucent side collection I am working on.

    I like the little buggers but I definitely agree the decided lack of new molds is a real put off.

    If they would do a whole new set of original molds, maybe even with some non car molds it would bring in a lot of new life to the concept.

    Yes but only new molds and like Arcsylver said a few non-car molds as well. The Legends are close but they really don't fell like Spychangers to me either. Maybe a blend of Spychangers with a little Legends and World's Smallest Transformers would be great.

    I cannot get enough of these. Got all the G2 versions (including color variations), the CR versions, RiD, Superspychangers & clear chases, plus all the Universe/G1-ish releases. Keep them coming, I say.

    I've got most of the RID and Universe ones.... and I have to say, while I love mine and think they're great, I probably wouldn't want to see more of them produced. They're a little too basic for my tastes. And actually kind of delicate. Minicons, LOC, the THS Convoys, all show that small Transformers CAN have decent articulation. At the very least I wish they had fold-down feet and splitting legs... as it is they are very front-heavy.

    Now if they made Spychanger-sized figures with a Matchbox-car looks but great articulation and good robot proportions... NOW we're talking. I'd gladly pay five times Spychanger price for them. Especially if they had die-cast bar bodies.

    I think they need new Decepticon Spychangers. I didn't start collecting again until the end of Beast Wars, so I missed out on all of the G2 Spychangers. I have all the State side Rid and most of Universe Spychangers, so the only Decepticon I have is Scourge and he needs some minions to boss around.

    Ok, I change my mind slightly. I'd buy decepticon decos of the old molds...but I'd really prefer new molds. Like I said in my original post, I like the little guys, I just think they're a little overdone.
