    transformable Xbox-bot & Dew-bot
    G1 characters done movie-style
    Frenzy's head, turns into Mikaela's cellphone
    Ultimate Frenzy (he's a CD player. Those things play songs, see?)
    Ghost Jazz (translucent, maybe in two pieces?)
    Legends Frenzy & '09 Bumblebee
    in-scale Allspark
    Robot Heroes of Sam, Megan Fox, S7 agents, etc.
    Any TF with a removeable driver... in 1:24 scale!

    Hasbro should get cracking on these for TF2, y'all.

    I've always felt that a voyager class Dispensor would be the single greatest TF ever released....

    *sigh* alas we just get a Robot Heroes release.

    Also, Ultimate Frenzy'd be made of win.

    Instead of firing a missle or dancing, he shoots a CD and flips the bird.

    Awesome.

    I still think we need a decent transformable Frenzy figure.

    X-Bot? Don't think that's much of a missed opportunity, except maybe as an accessory or maybe a Robot Hero.

    Dispensor... well, he's certainly the best example of the feral TFs that ought to be made into a TF. X-Bot or Car With Grabby Wheel, not so much.

    Movie-style G1 characters? And what, blow potential characters for #2? Or have fans complain if a character gets reused, even if a different alt mode?

    Ghost Jazz doesn't make much sense, but broken-in-two Jazz, sure.

    Tomy's releasing an Allspark, but in-scale would depend. It is kinda in scale for a Deluxe.

    Ultimate Frenzy... now that's real missed potential. Frenzy head, not really my thing.

    Guess I'm not 100% sure what's meant by "G1 characters in movie style". It's already been done somewhat in terms of repaints/remolds (Thundercracker, Cliffjumper, FAB Smokescreen & Ramjet), unless you mean something more like painting a flame-job on a Classics Optimus toy or something like that.

    I'm saying, Hasbro missed out on the opportunity to pad out the line with a designed-from-the-ground-up Runamuck/Runabout, which would have been awesome, and instead designed a generic car TF and slapped the name Swindle on him.
