    anyone have frustraiting memories of not owning jhiaxus, unicron, arcee or a half decent(purple) galvertron or as I live in england the chances of owning shockwave or swoop were also remote. I know ebay has made the world a smaller place and hasbro is redoing everything with todays better technology and I can get all of these things now and it feels extremly satisfying to have to custom or go out of my way to get them. what im saying is with g1 they created an ace cartoon with toys which sometimes looked a little shody in comparison. Even if this wasnt intended at the time they treated the fans mean to make the fandom keen. this keen fandom is extremly driven and dedicated which if you are a member of this website I am sure you will be aware. I have found myself wishing hasbro to leave a toy out of one of there current series as when they left out transformers animated omega supreme some genius custommiser was passionate enough to create a perfect toy for it which I saw sell on ebay for crazy crazy money. I personally feel it would be kinda cool of hasbro to leave out the toy for one of the characters of transformers prime to wet the fires of fandom passion, give customisers something to have a go at and would still make buisness sense for hasbro as they could eventualy release toy witch would be very collectible for fans. I would love to hear your opinions on this

    p.s. this isnt just because of my airachnid custom ive shown on this website which I couldnt resist doing even tho I new when I started making it I would be pissed when they made an official one honest

    Yeah i hated the fact we never got Animated constructicons, or omega Supreme or a release of Animated Maurauder Megatron.....and Hot Shot and uh Everyone else who appeared in the continuity.


    Someday Hasbro will pay us back. I hope.

    I want a goddamn WFC Starscream. Would've preferred that over Soundwave, even though he is a great toy!

    Plenty of the Animated crew. I really wanted Mixmaster, Scrapper, Dirt Boss, Slipstream, Ramjet, Elita-1, and Warpath.

    Does anyone think an Animated Flareup would be kinda neat?

    The ones I'm still miffed about not getting:

    - Animated Constructicons
    - Animated Omega Supreme
    - Animated leader class Lugnut
    - Animated Thundercracker
    - Animated G1 deco clone Starscream
    - Animated Warpath
    - Animated voyager class Sentinel Prime
    - Animated Wasp (non-insect version)
    - Animated Brawn
    - Animated Cyclonus
    - Animated Strika
    - Animated leader class Blackout

    - Alternators Ironhide
    - Alternators Ratchet
    - Alternators Trailbreaker
    - Alternators Hoist
    - Alternators Red Alert
    - Alternators Bumblebee
    - Alternators Cliffjumper
    - Alternators Brawn

    - G1 alligator Sharkticon

    - more G1 Robot Heroes

    - more War Within Titaniums

    The jury is still out on what they will do with future Classics and Movie figures, so no use listing any of unaccounted for characters yet.

    That's the thing, sometimes casts are just too large. When it comes to the early G1 characters you have to remember the concept of "buying toys because of the characters" was new.

    And lines like Animated or Alternators, well, I don't think it needs to be explained why we never got those figures.

    Agreed. Still just sucks that a lot of those figures never happened, whether or not they were ever actually planned.

    I think Alternators was the first big line since G1 that I started collecting again while coming back to the fandom, and it was that line that unfortunately taught me to keep my guard up when investing in new series' since Hasbro could - and does - sometimes pull the plug way before things are considered "complete". The cancellation of Animated was a complete blindside, though. I really thought that one had a few years left in it. I hoped the G1 Robot Heroes would go on forever since I assumed they were small & cheap enough to make that they could. And as much as I loved the WW Titaniums, it was pretty obvious that entire line wasn't going to last very long. At least we got all 3 original Seekers and the Prime & Megatron designs out of it.

    I was always disappointed that they never made a figure of that autobot that turns into a traffic light in the last episode of Cybertron.... I thought that would have been awesome.

    Any and all Animated characters that should've got toys, Alternators Porsche Jazz and New Beetle Bumblebee, the remaining ROTF Constructicons, and of course, SCROUNGE.

    Has/Tak y u no Animated Constructicons and show accurate Oil Slick

    Scrapper and Oil Slick were my two favorite characters aesthetically in Animated and they ended up having no toy and a toy of an earlier design that looks nothing like the show, respectively.

    I still want my show accurate BW Blackarachnia (original form of course.)

    Also TFA Red Alert and Spittor. Those would've been awesome.
