    I started a thread like this on here previously. I think my inspiration was from another board I don't recall where. Last time I don't think I provided enough direction as to what to do. So, since the previous thread has expired. New vs necro.

    You either pick Re-Issue, (New) Release OR Redeco/Retool

    ○ "If you choose Re-Issue, please then select five previously released figures you would re-issue."

    ○ "If you choose (New) Release, select five characters you release using brand new molds. Some description of the figures in question would be appreciated."

    ○ "If you go with Redeco/Retool, then selectfive previously released molds. And describe how you'd redeco or retool them. As well as, who the mold wouldbe redecoed or retooled as."

    ● Combiners don't count as one pick. And your answers can come from any era. Picks need be from the same category. If you choose to do more than one category please consider seperate post.

    • Example:

      • Category:

        》》》Redeco/Retool:

      • Pick Five:

        1. Classics Ramjet > Renegade Fitor

        2. Classics Astrotrain > Renegade Loco (bio can explain why he now has two alt modes)

        3. Universe 2.0 Ratchet > Protectobot First Aid (new head and deco at the least)

        4. Generations Jazz > Stunticon Dead End

        5. Classics Starscream > Guardian Leader 1

    So choose your category and then Pick Five.

    Can I go ahead and do them all?

    Re-Release:
    - Universe 2008 Starscream
    - Reveal the Shield Jazz
    - Classics Ramjet
    - Generations Thundercracker
    - Reveal the Shield Tracks

    I want these most of all since I missed them but...

    Round two would be more misses from me...
    - Generations Thrust
    - Universe 2008 Inferno
    - Universe 2008 Acid Storm
    - Universe 2008 Bluestreak
    - Universe 2008 Sideswipe


    (New) Release:
    - War Within Vibes - Based on her appearance from the War Within comics, deluxe scaled and based on elements from Thrilling 30 Arcee & Reveal the Shield Jazz
    - The Fallen - Based on his appearances in the War Within comics and voyager scaled (Heck you could retool his mold into Tarn!)
    - Ariel - Based on the PRID Arcee/Thrilling 30 Chromia mold (Could be used to retool into Solus Prime). Thus with TFCC Dion & Thrilling 30 Orion pax the trio is complete!
    - Rodimus Prime - I, I can't describe him. Uh, he would be voyager and when he transforms he turns into the whole Winnebago and the trailer turns into his legs?
    - Paddles - Yeah out of all the Dinobots I want him the most. Preferably leader, let Grimlock be voyager and the others be deluxe. He clearly would take inspiration from Sludge cause you could easily retool him into Sludge.

    (New) Release Round 2:
    Grimlock - Voyager and based on his G1 appearance but a lot more bulkier in appearance.
    Firestar - Deluxe and turns into a pickup truck, based on her appearance in the cartoon as much as possible and carries an axe.
    Slug - Deluxe and based on his G1 self.
    Snarl - Deluxe and based on his G1 self
    Shockwave - New voyager based on his CW self, and yes Hasbro would have to sell it has a submarine mode his alt mode.

    Redeco/Retool:
    - Titans Return Chromedome into Titans Return Minerva, Siren, & Goshooter Not including Nightbeat since he is on a rumors list
    - Titans Return Wolfwire into Titans Return Fangwolf(Cybertron Snarl) & Carnivac
    - Reveal the Shield Grapple into Hauler
    - Titans Return Skullsmasher into Alligaticon from City of Steel using Titan Master Apeface
    - Titans Return Frenzy into Titans Return Rumble (Yes I know I switch their names, get over it)

    Redeco/Retool Round 2:
    - Titans Return Mindwipe into Titans Return Swoop
    - Classics Ramjet into Jetblade (The HFTD guy)
    - Titans Return Wheelie into Moonracer
    - Titans Return Laserbeak into Sunder
    - Titans Return Rewind into Eject, Rosanna, & Solarbot

    I know I did A LOT more than the rules state but once you get a guy like me doing a challenge like this the snowball turns into an avalanche of ideas!

    Thanks for playing along...I'm liking a few of those ideas...Vibes as a mix of the designs for Arcee & Jazz sounds enticing...

    Thanks! I REALLY want a Vibes, I'm using her as one of the main Autobots in my Fan Fiction so I want a figure of her ASAP.

    And I updated my post since you quoted it with a bit more ideas. You've got my brain on overdrive at this point with ideas!

    Vibes is a character that has grown on me over the years...I've been badly wanted one official as well...been using FOC Sideswipe with FOC Jazz head for now...

    No problem...Jetblade from Ramjet is another I've wanted for a bit...fingers currently crossed for Moonracer redeco of Wheelie...:thumb ...

    Jetblade is just one of many modern characters Hasbro has created that I want to get a G1 styled CHUG figure.

    I also wanted a Barricade from Universe Prowl, Bulkhead from Universe Ultra Onslaught, & Blackout from Universe Voyager Blades

    So you sold yours then? It was your TF-1.com article that sold me on him with your wonderful photos. I bought him in about 2007 (but I could be wrong), and I still think he's absolutely stunning.

    I'm looking for a general UT rerelease, so these figures I wouldn't mind seeing rereleased as is but new versions would be fun too!

    Armada prime, big version with full base. Through on Jetfire and Overload too, man what a fun set. And to think, Takara was mulling a Masterpiece version of this!
    Armada Megs. what fun figure. And I know he just got a new version, but I felt it was missing a lot of fun features the original had, like his switch blade knife hand and capture claw.
    Red alert: One of my favorite characters, and toys, from Armada. Now, the autobots already have a lot of medics, so a play on Animated's FEMALE red alert would also be fun!
    Energon Rodimus: fun little Rodimus.
    Armada sideways: One of the best headmaster/faction switcher toys out there. A new version in TR would be welcome and make sense.
    Engergon Galvatron: Hands down one of the best Galvatrons ever made.
    Cybertron Vector Prime: Probably my all time favorite UT toy/character. I know he was redeccoed a couple times, but one more release in his original colors would be great. And of course, Id love to see a good, new version of the character.
