    I'm bored out of my mind, so I thought I'd waste time by posting my current TF wishlist. I figured since there are already a thousand threads about Classics, I'd just reference Alternators & Titaniums instead. And while I fully expect to see people shout out more obscure names for their wishlists, I'm trying to base mine on figures that (I think) actually could happen.

    Not trying to prove anything here - just getting it out of my system is all :) 

    ALTERNATORS

    AUTOBOTS
    - Brawn
    - Bumblebee (don't expect nor even want a VW Beetle mold)
    - Cliffjumper
    - Hoist
    - Ironhide
    - Ratchet
    - Red Alert
    - Trailbreaker

    DECEPTICONS / NEW CHARACTERS
    - No more!

    Just finish the core G1 Autobot car & truck characters - that's all I'm hoping/pleading for.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    TITANIUM 6" - GENERATION 1

    AUTOBOTS
    - Blurr
    - Kup
    - Springer

    DECEPTICONS
    - Cyclonus
    - Galvatron

    Basically the remaining key TF:TM characters to go with Rodimus, Magnus & Scourge.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    TITANIUM 6" - WAR WITHIN

    AUTOBOTS
    - Bluestreak
    - Brawn
    - Bumblebee
    - Cliffjumper
    - Hound
    - Huffer
    - Gears
    - Ironhide
    - Jazz
    - Mirage
    - Ratchet
    - Sideswipe
    - Sunstreaker
    - Trailbreaker
    - Wheeljack
    - Windchager
    - The Dynobots (especially since WW Grimlock has been confirmed for release)

    DECEPTICONS
    - Dirge
    - Ramjet
    - Shockwave (unused design found in V.1 TPB)
    - Soundwave (unused design found in V.1 TPB or Stormbringer design)
    - Thrust
    - The Constructicons (could care less if they actually combine)
    - The Insecticons
    - The Predacons (Stormbringer designs, and again, could care less if they actually combine)

    War Within = the best TF series ever with the best TF designs ever - end of story :)

    I'd like to a see a handful of new Alts, Megatron, Bumblebee are the obvious ones. I'd go nutso bananas for a Wheelie Alt. As much bad press as the little guy gets, I loved the original G1 toy and think he's long overdue for an update.

    Alts:
    No more, I'm done. Even if the line does come back sometime after the movie, I've just lost all interest in it.

    Tits:
    Vector Prime
    TM2 Megatron
    RiD Megatron
    G1 Cyclonus
    G1 Galvatron
    Devastator made up of six vehicles with no individual bot modes (only way I can see him working as a Tit)
    More non-WWI stuff. WWI is cool, but Titanium has a lot more out there to draw from.

    I want the remaining 84/85 Bots as Alternators:

    Ironhide/Ratchet - not as Skids repaints
    Downshift - to go with Camshaft & Overdrive (Windcharger)
    Hoist - remold Alt Prime's truck bed + new head
    Grapple/Inferno - $30-$40 retail instead of $20 so they can have their larger Alt modes
    Red Alert

    And some of the minibots:

    Beachcomber
    Bumblebee/Cliffjumper
    Gears
    Brawn

    Not interested in any Alts of Cons that were not originally cars.

    Alternators versus Titanium

    I was never a big fan of Alternators. In fact, I have yet to even purchase one Alternator. I feel that the Alternator line appeals more to car buffs. People who like to buy realistic models of Porshe, Ferrari, etc will like the Alternator line.

    However, I am a big fan of the TF Titanium line. Due to cost constraints, I mainly buy the 3" figures. I purchased only 1 6" figure so far, Rodimus Prime. He's cool. In Canada, the 6" line is upto 3-4 times the price of the the 3" figures! I need more money!!!!

    MY GF doesn't like my 3" TF Titanium figures. She feels that it is pointless to buy TFs that do not transform. Oh well. I don't have a problem with it!

    Alternators:
    Keep the cars coming and abuse the GM licence. (new Camero, Hummers, Caddy XLR)
    Do the same with Ford. (Mazda Miata = Arcee)

    Why not branch into different machines? Get an agreement with Catapillar or John Deere to make constructicons. (Repaint them to make them the RID Build King)

    I would have to draw the line at Alts that weren't cars, I think. It's a great idea to expand the line a bit but for me personally, I like the uniformity of the line. The issues of scale would be kinda crazy too.

    Alts:
    I gotta say Ironhide, a new mold. Since this is a wishlist, I would like it to be wishfull and say an '80s van of some sort. I would get a Megatron if they could make the 'bot mode look like a good Megatron, and the line needs a Megatron.

    Titaniums:
    For the 3", I had an odd idea. I would like to see them make a full on battle scene set that includes about 20 TF's fighting it out. You would buy them all individually, but they would fit together. I would prefer something other then G1 just because they already covered a lot of them.
    For 6", definitely Kup, Springer, Cyclonus, and Galvatron from TF TM. Also, being that he's my favorite toy from my childhood, Powermaster OP. I wouldn't have thought about that before Ultra Magnus, but I think it could be done.
    Also, anything WW would be nice.

    Alts (or even better BTs)

    Nemesis Prime as Trailbreaker!
    New mould for Ironhide/Ratchet that is a little larger - Hummer would do. We NEED these characters done justice to and now that they're both in the movie surely they're popularity is only going to rise.
    Bumblebee - don't care if he's not a bug but something similar would do. Not a Camero!

    I don't collect Titaniums.

    MPs

    Shockwave
    Soundwave + tapes
    Skywarp
    Thundercracker
    Ultra Magnus + armour

    And then I'm done... Unless the book style re-issues come back and finish off the 84/85 moulds.

    Given that none of these are on the cards there's not one TF that I'm currently wanting to own. Damn them!

    Steve.

    I have to agree, Hasbro really missed out on the point of Alternators. Most of us were buying these guys because of there ultra realistic car modes, difficult transformations, and great-looking robot modes. No one said they had to only use G1 characters. (But, I'm not denying that some of us bought them because we were like, "Dude! G1 Silverstreak in a new body!")

    Its like they created all these great, unique characters for the next generation of fans, and then didn't use them. Armada Hotshot...he certainly deserves an awesome toy. Bring on Armada Red Alert, Blurr, Side Swipe, Optimus Prime, etc. Even some minicon's were already realistic looking cars. Any of these certainly would have been more popular than Camshaft, Swerve, and Battle Ravage...

    I personally started making my own Armada Alternators, because I was so disappointed with the non-use of the characters! (See my signature image)

    The RID Car Brothers are another applicable use of the Alternators license.

    Cybertron Crosswise anyone? Damn, swap some parts between Alternators Ricochet and Smokescreen, and Hasbro is half-way there.

    Another thing Hasbro could do...wishful thinking of course...would be to continue doing what they were doing. When the first wave of Energon figures came out, we got our first wave of Alternators. Both packaging involved a darker black to blue color scheme. When Energon changed its packaging to red, so did Alternators. When Cybertron changed their packaging, so did Alternators. Why not simply make 1:24 scale movie characters in movie-reminiscent Alternators packaging? C'mon, who wouldn't want a Bumblebee, Barricade, Jazz, Ironhide, and Ratchet in scale with the rest of their Alternators? Its such a great idea, and they already have the licenses!

    Alright, thats enough wishful whining...

    The Seekers
    Soundwave
    Bumblebee
    The rest of the Dinobots
    Trailbreaker
    Hoist
    Frenzy
    Lazerbeak/Buzzsaw.

    And none of these have to be "new" cars, how about some old cars/trucks?

    Maybe Kup as a '55 Chevy or Ford Stepside?

    G2 Megatron (but in silver colors instead of green & purple)

    RID Magnus (no combining with RID Prime... that'd just be bad and flimsy)
    BW Optimus Primal
    BW Megatron
    BW Blackarachnia
    BW Silverbolt
    BM Jetstorm
    BM Tankor
    BW Neo Big Convoy
    BW II Leo Convoy
    BW II Galvatron
    G1 Galvatron
    G1 Cyclonus

    None. Just let it die in peace.

    Titaniums:
    Grimlock of any Generation
    Prowl of any Generation (looking forward to seeing what generation the upcoming one is from)
    Ironhide from any generation
    G1 Cyclonus
    G1 Megatron
    BW Dinobot
    BW Inferno
    Dinobots of any Generation
    Stunticons of any Generation (would be cool if they could combine to form menasor, but I'd still take 'em either way)
    Probably way more that I can't think of now.

    I really don't understand these kind of statements. I mean, I've not cared for any of the series since G1 with the EXCEPTION of the BT/Alt line and yet I've never claimed I wanted Energon or Classics or whatever to die. They weren't for me but who am I to want to stop other people getting what could be cool new molds.

    There is still some potential left in this line and I'd rather see it continue than not even if the new molds personally don't do it for me. What? Someone forcing you to buy toys you don't like? I love the Alt line but I've not felt the need to buy every one and I'm still hoping like hell that we at least see Ironhide and Ratchet before the line bites the dust.

    So yeah, grow up.*

    Steve

    * Yes, the irony of one toy collector telling another toy collector to grow up is not lost on me.

    ALTERNATORS:

    None, frankly.

    TITANIUMS

    All 6" transformables.

    To be more specific, since we're not likely to see them any other way:

    - Pretty much every other "War Within" design that hasn't been made yet
    - The rest of the TF:TM '86/TF2010 'main' cast
    - "Infiltration" Ratchet/Ironhide
    - "Hearts Of Steel" Starscream/Thundercracker/Skywarp and Bumblebee
    - Figueroa's Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime
    - His Dominator Megatron, too.
    - Night Raven Starscream/Thundercracker/Skywarp
    - All of Figueroa's World War II TF designs
    - More obscure characters (Devcon, Straxus, a comic-accurate Jhiaxus).
