    It'd be cool to see a Broadside redeco, methinks.

    I don't think they should, Unicron I can guess why, but why Tidal Wave ?

    I'd buy it too, whether they gave him new colors or not. It is a pretty nice figure, and its one I never bought from either Armada or Energon.

    Because Tidal Wave is win. I already have him, but it'd be a good idea for those who don't have it. They would just need to remold him to have knees.

    Well, Tidal Wave was arguably one of the best molds in the unicron trilogy, so he would sell fairly well.

    If we did, I would like a repaint. I have the amazing energon deco, but the armada deco is crap. Black, silver, and dark red would be nice... Or yellow in place of red, like lighting or something(like on the energon one)

    But since he's one of the best molds wouldn't most people already have him ?

    Tbh I can't see them do it

    Aimed at the kids who might now have been born in 2003/4. ;]

    But he does need knees, that's a real issue I have with him.

    A thousand times yes, because I never could get one. Broadside is an agreeable idea but even if it's some other character (or even Tidal Wave again) that's alright too.

    Doesn't matter. Kids want a cool robot, they get a cool robot. Who splits up into three little vehicles or goes together as this one big spaceship.

    Character identification is important, but it's not the be all and end all. I think release him again in a good deco and he'll sell.

    Kids don't know half of the figures made, I doubt many will know the beachcomer repaint for ROTF. The novelty would be the part aimed towars older audiences I suppose.

    Never picked him up in Armada or Energon, so I'd like to see him back n the shelves.
