    Didn't see another tread like this one... so forgive me if I missed it.

    What other accessories, parts, bots, etc.. would you like to see some third
    party co. (or Hasbro/Takara) make/sell?


    I'd like :

    Articulated hands/fingers for Fortress/Brave Maximus.

    A cheap generic set of headmaster heads (6 pack?).

    A new face/bot for G1 Scorponok. (I've seen concept drawings of a Zarak/
    Scorponok face online ...somewhere.)

    Updated version of the Trainbots that can combine into Raiden.

    New combiner team(s) and characters (Voyager sized). Brand new everything.

    New Dinobot combiners. (Surely someone can come up with something better
    than Hasbro's Energon Grimlock + Swoop combo.)

    This is all I could think of for now. (And, yes, I like Combiners/Gestalts.)

    What would you like?

    Five-buck 'booster packs' of 3mm-post or snap-on weapons that one can 'upgrade' their TFs with.

    A Classics-style Blitzwing to serve as a nemesis for FP Springer (Warbot).

    New mold Leader-class G1 Overlord.

    Stormbringer upgrade for Generations Thunderwing.

    Thunderwing Upgrade ... Yeah, that I definitely like!

    Heck, how about an all new voyager sized Thunderwing - Stormbringer Edition!

    I was messing about with my KO Metro Titan and I was thinking perhaps some new hands for him & Metroplex might be quite nice to have.


    Thinking of cheap replacements There might be some worth to make Decepticon Targetmasters that look like the original as much as possible but have pinned hips like the Autobot ones. So people don't risk harm when Transforming them.

    But the same idea would be nice with more modern designs too like shotpiece and co.

    But I have long thought it must be possible to make replacement Headmasters for Hosehead, Siren & Nightbeat that don't use the helmet design method they just transform from the full head to the full robot.

    Also a slightly bigger and meaner replacement head for Apeface & Snapdragon might be worthwhile... also some kind of enhancement parts for apeface to make him more stable in gorilla mode. perhaps some clip on new gorilla hands too.

    Some of what you asked for is getting made already.

    I think a scorponok head has some merit perhaps even a tiny robot body for Zarak that make scorponok into a double headmaster too and gives him a proper face.

    That Stormbringer armor has got to be a LOCK. I'm saying it now, grab an extra or two of those shelf warming Thunderwings.

    More TFA stuff -

    New head for sunstorm, even if it has to be detached for transformation

    Proper null rays for the seekers would be cool.

    Matrix for Optimus Prime to carry around his neck.

    Magnus gear for Sentinel, seen in botcon comic.

    A non-malformed Sari. Even if it's just a stationary figure.

    Blackarachnia head without helmet

    That big murder arm Oilslick was sporting in the botcon comic, complete with a Scalpel to ride in it. Maybe it turns into a sidecar?

    BLURR CUBE. Maybe with light up spark so you can pick between dead or alive.

    Transforming Headmaster. Who cares if it won't be able to fit on anyone's head, we already have one that can. Can't make it transform? I'll settle for a toy of the mini robot.

    Damaged Megatron head. He can come with a damaged hand and a little Isaac Sumdac to sit in it.



    I can keep going, but I won't. Transformers Animated is a third-party accessory/figure goldmine.



    BLUUR CUBE.

    -improved Generations/Henkei Red Alert head
    -improved Henkei/United Megatron head
    -Combiners we don't have already, and at or near the same scale and aesthetic of the ones FP made. Voyager torso and deluxe limbs at the most.
    -Punch/Counterpunch that isn't a mediocre exclusive with a tiny head
    -Dinobots stylized in the same way Deluxe Classics Grimlock is so they match
    -Re-release of FP Warbot Defender with improved plastic (same plastic they used for Insecticons), preferably no die-cast, heels, and less QC issues with the joints (knees and shoulders specifically). I don't care if it would piss off people who already have it, I love the mold but it's riddled with QC crap that ruins it.
    -Improved head for FP Protector with a better looking face sculpt and maybe cartoon accurate red helmet crests instead of orange.
    -A newer/more accurate Silverbolt figure that combines with the ROTF Aerialbot scouts. I love those scout/basic figures, but Silverbolt is crap and isn't solid at all.

    ^ Agreed! WBD is such a nice design, but mine wore to floppiness so fast and super glue won't adhere very well.
