Looking at the current Transformers TV show toyline from Prime (so far), and the previous Animated toylines, non-show character toys, that are not just simple repaints/retools, seem to becoming a thing of the past. The last TF show I watched whose toyline had non-show toys was Beast Wars, and I loved some of those non-show toys (in the end they did get some coverage in the IDW comics, for example Razorbeast). I didn't watch any of the Unicron Trilogy so I don't know if any were released there. Obviously, the Bay films had TONS of non-movie toy, some of which were awesome (Mindwipe for example IMO). I would like to non-show characters get toys, whether they be original character or reinventing old characters. On the other hand, I would sacrafice non-show toys to get figures of show character that never got a toy (for example, the constructicons of Animated) I have a few questions for you: Do you like non-show characters getting toys? Why/why not? Do you have any favourties that stand out? Do you think they are becoming a thing of the past? Why/why not?
