    Not a demand of any kind lol, but with the news of Beast Machines Obsidian and Transmetal Optimus Receiving the Third Party Treatment, I think some 3rd party Transtech figures should be somethinf to consider, and I hope to see that done in the near future, especially a Transtech Cheetor.

    Most people suggest that ship has sailed, but the way 3rd Parties are going about with their selection of figures, I have hope that it is not out of the realm of possibility (extremely optimistic lol) !

    Yes, please. There's so much wasted potential in that line.

    I'm wondering who would be able to make these figures a reality. Im serious enough to commission someone for Cheetor, but its nesrly impossible to find a person, or company.

    I'd at least get a Megatron, Ratbat and Prime. Maybe Prowl, Cheetor and Shockwave...

    Getting the 3D made is pretty easy. Lots of people out there who could do it if you are willing to pay for it.

    Problem is 3D is only the smallest part of the entire process. Even if you have the 3D done, to get a factory to actually make a prototype that is proper will cost almost as much as the 3D itself.

    Then depending on how intricate you want the figure to be, well mold costs alone can run into the hundreds of thousands. Then comes production and then need to be assured of a good enough amount of production to cover the costs.

    Pretty big proposal.

    speaking of Transtech, is there somewhere with all the images and references for all the characters? or does someone have an archive of them all?

    Tell you the truth, if I can gind someone who can make a good quality Transtech figure, by unit, I would fork up the cash. Sell every figure I have just to do it lol

    Most are on TFWiki for comic art, but google has alot of Transtech images.

    As a matter of fact...

    Well as I say, getting the 3D and a prototype is pretty easy to get done. It just costs the money.

    And yeah, I know how to use Google, it is why I asked if there was somewhere with ALL the images or a good ARCHIVE, because TFWiki does not always have everything.
