    Now I think most of us can agree that the Real Gear line is an awesome one. But now that they're all out sans two repaints, is anyone sad they're over?

    Regardless of if they do make new molds in the future, is anyone sad no more are coming any time soon? Now that I have all eight, I'm kinda wishing their was another wave coming out of brand new molds or something.

    Anybody else already missing them?

    I'm not missing them yet, because I haven't found the last two in my area. I will definitely say that I agree about them being a great line!

    The only line I will admit to missing is Titanium 6"ers.
    Though some new real gear figures would've been nice, I would've even settled for more repaints (Buzzsaw from Booster/Nightbeat?).

    I'm totally with you. The Real Gear line is full of absolute gems. I'd love it if they incorporated more of them into Universe/ Classics 2.0

    Real Gears ARE cool!!! I havent got them all but I started getting them for my kids, they LOVE them... Especially the video cam, cellphone and Ps2 controllers...

    Hasbro could have scraped that other line (the stuff that turn into weopons... one of em is like a PDA that turns to a bow/arrow type thing... stupid)... and made those into TFs like Real gears!!!

    I definitely want more Real Gear figures. The Real Gear toys were what I was most looking forward to with the movie line, and they ended up being the toys out of that line that I was far and away most pleased with. I've played with the Real Gear figures far more than most of my other TFs (admitedly the LOLgear thread has a lot to do with that!).

    Along with more basics I'd like to see a couple deluxe RG figures, too. Maybe a good deluxe would be a Laptop that turns into a big bot and a base/data intelligence center or something like that. And for more little doohickys they could do a PDA, GPS, flashlight, calculator...

    I'd even like stuff that isn't neccessarily in scale with real world items, like a toaster (I'd kill for a toasterbot!), refridgerator, coffee maker, microwave, blender. The Mountain Dew machine from the movie is a no-brainer, too (or "soda" machine if they don't want to put a real brand on it). However, I want all this stuff made in the more Classic style of the current Real Gears and not in the style of the movie TFs.

    As much as I love vehicle-bots, there's just something rediculous and awesome about every-day gadgets turning into bots that I love. I'm one of the few who think Gold Lightan is the best Soul of Chogokin figure. :)

    The only thing that could make the Real Gear figures better is the addition of weapons for the little buggers. How else are they supposed to start some shit?

    I NEED a High Score 100! Haven't seen him anywhere.

    I agree, though, more real gears in more variety would be great. How about a voyager laptop? Or a family... Scoutish sized mouse, deluxe monitor and keyboard, and a voyager tower.

    The way their bio's put it, giving them weapons would bring the world to an end.

    That's what I really love about these little guys, is that their bio's make them out to be such characters, with all kinds of weird powers and skills.

    Meantime can control time within a difference of ten minutes, while highscore is a martial artist. Who thought of these?

    I would also like larger price point LOLgears. They're certainly the best thing to come out of the movie line.

    Although I would like a larger pricepoint, I can't see it doing well. Unless the build Electronics into them.

    I would love a deluxe Pepsi Can Real Gear.

    I guess there's only so many 'gadgets' that can be used for the line unless they diversify into things like a 'portable hair curler that becomes a robot'.
