    I once posted a while back a comment about using Super Megatron or Ultra Megatron in TFU.

    and i wanna see more of the TF Universe instead of just redecos or repaints.

    In TFA, we can buy both earth and cybertronian modes of Megatron and Prime. but look at em. YAWN.

    my idea for TFU is this:

    Cybertronian mode Jazz, for example.
    i know by today's standards, it looks kinda lame. but still, it would be a neat change of pace.

    point with me remains the same. it is called Universe, so that should be taken advantage of and let us collect from a wide variety of designs.
    the current designs (aside from QC) are impressive and they tease us with what could be awesome possibiliteis if they would just go "universal" in concept.


    and for the record, yes, the cybetronian alt mode for bumblebee was indeed stupid. (A floating triangle????)

    Hasbro did have a prototype of Cybertronian Bumblebee a while ago. Let me see if I can find a pic...

    I'd be just as happy with a Universe Earth Jazz. (new mold)

    Agreed. I'd like a Porsche Jazz first. Cybertronian modes can come later.

    I do agree with what you´re saying. I think that if you look at it from a financial point of view, it is more profitable for Hasbro to just repaint old molds. I don´t think this has to do with the economic crysis or anything (since they have been doing for a long, long time).

    But at the sime time, I do believe that Hasbro are aware of this and it´s something that they hopefully will be able to change. I love the Autobot Cars in the Universe line, but hate the fact that they´re just using Prowls and Sunstreakers molds. Sure there´s Ironhide, but then we have the uppcoming Ratchet figure.

    Closing of, I would like to see a new mind blowing-awesome looking mold for an upcoming Universe Deluxe Wheeljack.

    I'd love to see some of the Cybertronian modes from G1. Wheeljack and Bumblebee were pretty cool looking. I would also love to see characters like Orion Pax and Dion get toys along with Alpha Trion, not just repaints.

    agreed. Orion Pax, Dion and Alpha Trion would make great additions.

    heck, the WW figures in titanium pricked my ears, making me drool at the idea of those guys getting proper plastic incarnations.
    (really want Prime and Prowl.)

    I am never gonna complain about TFU (okay, if QC sucks, i will) and what it is trying to accomplish.
    But there is so much in the TF mythos to really wow us at the toy aisle.

    and the frisbee joke. pure gold-bug, right?
    (puns are dangerous.)

    No he wouldn't.

    Unless Hasbro took an Energon/Cybertron mold to repaint into Skids, he'd be getting an original mold.

    If you've payed attention to the Classics line, you'll notice that characters are only repainted from molds as they were in the G1 line. And G1 Skids isn't a repaint of Ironhide and Ratchet.
