    Ok, so revoltech is technically not Transformers, but as a TF fan I have only really bought the TFs from the Revoltech line, and I would pretty much buy any of the TFs released that weren't repaints from the line. Anyways, taking in there size and contruction, and general popularity/sales into consideration, I was just wondering what you guys would want to see, and if you heard anything new coming up. Well, here are several of mine:

    - I would love to see real versions of the Revoltech Shockwave and Magnus shown in another current thread.
    - Soundwave with at least a small Lazerbeak similar to the Titanium one
    - Galvatron
    - Cyclonus
    - Grimlock (should be that he and all the Dinobots should be made)
    - Springer (not enough Springer toys)
    - Ironhide (not enough decent Ironhide toys)

    That's really just a start. I could list a bunch more, but these guys in particular either never had a great G1 toy, or was not reissued, or has never really had a satisfying update.

    Cyclonus, seconded.

    I reckon Wheeljack would be fun. And Huffer.

    Wheeljack would be great. Another character that needs a good update, even though Energon Downshift was pretty good.

    Soundwave, Shockwave, and an oversized (say 8" instead of the usual 6") 'toon accurate Jetfire..

    Assuming they'll continue to release one Autobot & one Decepticon silutaneously the way they did with Starscream & Rodimus, this is what I'd like to see:

    Shockwave / Skyfire
    Ironhide / Thundercracker
    Wheeljack / Skywarp
    Galvatron / Ultra Magnus (proper G1 version)
    Cyclonus / Kup
    Blitzwing / Springer
    Hound / Thrust
    Trailbreaker / Dirge
    Jazz / Ramjet
    Prowl / Soundwave
    Bluestreak / Astrotrain
    Mirage, Sunstreaker & Sideswipe / Reflector 6-Pack :)

    You know, I wouldn't mind seeing a cartoon accurate Skyfire, but they did already release a Valkyie/Macross that looks REALLY close to Jetfire, which I got just for that. Unfortunately, while it looks nice, it does lack the sturdiness of any of the 4 TF based ones made. Mine immediately had a super loose leg that I had to use some Super Glue to tighten, and one of his missile pegs are stuck in one of the peg holes in his wing (now broken off from the missile).

    I kinda hope they stick with G1....

    I would like to see them take on some of the smaller guys like any of the Minibots. And kinda in scale with Prime and the others!

    I would be cool with any Starscream but that is a biased opinion.

    Other than that I would love Shockwave and Cyclonus. Or how about a combiner I wouldn't mind a Computron. They could make them taller than the others, however they would need larger joint mechinisims than they currently use.

    Yeah, they've done a few Valkyrie variations for the Macross Revoltechs. I find those figures a bit of an oddity in the Revoltech line tho, as Macross toys of those already exist that were as posable, roughly the same size - and transformable. Bit morefragile I guess, but so very cool. I did have one, but sold it ages back, I'll try and find a link for it as they weren't hugely expensive either..

    Heading further off-topic, I'm hoping they do some Revoltech Ghost In The Shell figures at some point.

    EDIT - They're "discontinued", but you can at least see what those Revoltech-sized transforming Valkyries looked like at HLJ, if anyone's interested. They were made by Banpresto, and they did a few different versions (also listed). Bit of repaint action and you have a mini Jetfire...

    I think tha a Springer and a Blurr would suit the very posable revoltech line but I would also like to see an IDW comics accurate ravage - who would be awesome as that design is bulky enough to have joints inside the body and it doesn't matter that he won't transform.
