    I'm probably the only one crazy enough, but I would rather buy Titanium Heroes Soundwave and Rodimus Prime with only die-cast alternate forms for, say, $7-10 each. That's especially true with Soundwave as long as he still came with transformable Laserbeak. The reason is I'm not all that impressed with their robot forms, but I love their alternate forms. But they're too expensive imo to keep in one form all the time. I discovered the same is true with Optimus. I love the truck thing, but as robots go, I prefer his 3" version.

    I don't expect Hasbro to ever do that, because it is pretty silly. Who knows, maybe they'll consider 3" cars and trucks and jets and whatever someday. That would be an awesome way to get WW Wheeljack and Bumblebee and the lot.

    I would go for the 3" vehicles. Especially the G1 car-bots and a bunch of jets. They could even go into more modern ones like the Alternators or the Unicron trilogy, or even Classics for that matter. I would love to see a 3" Titanium version of both alt and bot modes of G1 Jetfire and Skyfire. Peace out.

    It would be nice to buy able to buy sets of say the Seekers in plane mode,the Dinobots in dino mode,the Insecticons you know the special groups from the show. I would probably faint if they were to make 6" non transforming Titaniums of the G1 Combiners. Sure it would just be a glorified metal statue but they would be crazy.

    Yeah I wondered what people would think of a articulated metal Devastator. Maybe even have the vehicles detach and roll around.

    I didn't buy Actionmasters. I won't buy Statues. And I won't buy the (lamentably bad) 3" Titaniums.
    Why?
    Because they don't transform.
    I sure as hell wouldn't buy TFs that only came in vehicle mode either.

    6" line needs better robot modes.

    3" line needs robot AND vehicle modes in 2-packs. Combiners would be cool, if they retooled the individuals to have really simplified transformations.

    Non-transforming vehicle mode TF toys sound ludicrous to me.

    i have to disagree man, i would totally buy a set of hot wheels style cars in the G1 forms... I always tried to get the ones that were closest to Transformers as a kid. I bought a light blue VW Beetle as a kid at a 99cent store just because it kinda looked like Bumblebee haha

    They sound like Matchbox to me. :lol  I mean ok, maybe for some of the more unique designs (Hot Rod? :D ), but for the most part I don't think it'd be worth it at all.

    I like the idea of Hot Wheels sized alt mode cars with free rolling wheels, as long as they are reasonably priced (I'm a recovering HW addict). But, I don't think I'd ever jump on 6" Tit. sized alt mode only versions...probably would be too expensive for my tastes, given what I would get for my money. I'm not much for statues.

    I won't mind if the alternate modes aren't normal vehicles...something like the Dinobots, Insecticons or Predacons would be cool. :D

    Hmm, the whole concept of a non-transforming alt-mode seems like the total reverse of an Action Master. Hasbro could go full circle! Sure hope not.

    I would certainly buy all die cast 3" alternate mode g1 Titanium Transformers that Hasbro can make. I would especially like Hot Rod, Rodimus Prime, Optimus Prime, Kup, Springer, Arcee, Ultra Magnus, etc.

    They could call them "Even-less-Action masters".
