    How do feel about characters such as Animated Lockdown and Cybertron Scattershot getting movie stylized toys? Personally I like them and can only hope we can get more of them later on throughout the years. I wouldn't mind some Beast Wars-like characters such as Waspinator or maybe some that weren't in the show, such as Cybershark or Armadillo. I don't know, what do you think?

    Still holding out hope that the Lugnut we heard about is going to be a original mold and not a Stratosphere repaint.

    Movie style Beats wars characters...Would be interesting. I don't really see it happening. Unless you mean homages to the characters, but with vehicle modes. Which would probably more likely, but I'd still be surprised.

    The only ROTF toys I've even bought (besides scouts) have been Bludgeon and Lockdown, and I got Seaspray on pre-order. So, yeah, I guess they're pretty cool :)

    I think that they are a nice break from the constant G1 homages and original characters. I would really like to see a ROTF Depth Charge. And if it can be any character, make a ROTF Overcharge the Taxi:lol :lol :lol

    I like 'em. I own Scattorshot, Lockdown, Mindwipe, Skystalker, and Bludgeon, and other than the mandatory Prime and Megatron, that's it. And they're all nifty...

    I'll put another vote in here. I really like them. I want a leader or voyager sized Rhinox. I don't care if it is a vehicle or a Rhino. As long as it is a good homage.

    Cybertron Scattorshot got movie-nized? I think they just reused the name. Could have just easily called it Sentinel Prime.

    I think that the Scattorshot scout had a strong resemblance to the Cybertron toy personally...

    I would love some Beast Wars homages! I would definitely like to see a Waspinator, Rhinox or Rattrap!

    Excellent idea! Transmetals 2 Cybershark already has that super-busy look of the movie!

    Cybershark for the win, and for kicks, maybe Sky-byte from RID.

    I like them. When I first started collecting (TFTM time) I didn't understand why they'd make movie toys out of characters that weren't even in the movies, but at this point I just like seeing new things.

    The mold shares many more similarities with Cyb. Scattorshot than with Sentinel Prime.

    I wanna see Heinlad made into a ROTF character, alarm scrotum and all.

    He can be the next racial stereotype in the line.

    I think they should find a middle ground between introducing new characters and reviving old characters. They should revive the best of the old, and anything new should be at least as good or better than pre-established characters.

    They should avoid doing nobody characters as much as possible and focus on making both new and old characters as unique and distinctive as possible.

    I agree. Even though Overcharge was just a minicon repaint, it's just too good an idea not to revisit.

    I bought that whole Universe Minicon set just to get Overcharge. It's one character who definitely deserves a promotion.

    hope they make some bw characters to movie. but all in scout size except primal and megatron they should be deluxe. due to animal sizes.
