    Hi.


    With the placing of the Transtech designs in a new fictional setting (including the emissary-city of Axiom Nexus) I was wondering if it might be feasible to have one or more of the TransTech characters be used for release in the Universe 2.0 line?


    Their role in Axiom Nexus would give them a ready-made excuse to be able to interact with other Universe 2.0 characters, and it would be a great chance to finally bring some of those Transtech designs to life.


    And if it were feasible, which TransTech characters would you like to see selected?

    (Shockwave could be a good choice, for example...)

    It would be very interesting, and very cool to see. Other than the fact they were never made, there really isn't any other reasons needed to produce any of them in the Universe line (no fiction, so they really don't need an explanation story-wise). As for which one's I would like to see, here's my short list:

    -Optimus Prime
    -Megatron
    -Cheetor
    -Starscream

    Well, one could count the TransTech fiction as doing the job - making them the advanced 'Transcedant Technomorphs' of Axiom Nexus' Cybertron.

    Or are you referring to Universe 2.0 itself having no accompanying fiction series?

    That's basically what I was saying, and basically that it means the Transtech toys wouldn't need a story reason before being added to the Universe line. They technically already do, but it wouldn't be needed for them to be added to the toy line.

    I second the call for a Universe TransTech Shockwave, and I'd also like to see Prowl, Optimus, Megatron, Ratbat, Starscream and Depth Charge - he may have been cannon fodder in the comic, but he's Depth Charge. There's no reason why he shouldn't have more toys (I so call for a Robot Heroes version of him versus Rampage!).

    After looking at all of the concept designs and the un-produced Starscream figure, TransTech is the number one line I'd like to see come to fruition. The figures could be as complex as Alternators and as detailed as the movie line.
    I'd actually get into Classics/Universe if these were released.

    Either way, my favoriites are Megatron, Cheetor, Black Arachnia and the un-named mech.

    it'll be cool,but Hasbro may not want this idea.
    Anyway,here's my wish-list:

    Shockwave
    Optimus Prime
    Depth Charge

    Edit:Speaking of it,we might as well ask for a seperate toyline of TransTechs!

    Definitely. I'd buy all of them. Just hope they keep in the electronic lights and sounds.

    Are there any designs for transtech Cyrotek besides his upper body?

    It's really hard to single out any specific design that I'd want made over the others.
    Here a few I'd want.

    Cheetor
    Prowl
    Silverbolt
    Megatron
    Optimus prime
    Starscream
    Shockwave
    .... wait that's most of the ones we've had a good look at.

    edit: If they were to have toys. I'd want them based on their revised comic designs rather than the original ones.

    Nightscream was pretty slick, I'd like to see that made and the Eva/Knight looking Silverbolt. That would be awesome. Of course if they could get the others made, by all means ^__^

    I'd love to see a couple of Transtech toys in the Universe line. Cheetor and Shockwave would be great, but I'd really love to see that Blackarachnia design made into a figure.

    I'd love to see Transtech Depth Charge

    Otherwise Transtech would just be taking up spots that could be filled with other G1 characters. Doublecross for '09!

    I'd rather see TransTech designs being put to plastic than more G1 characters any day. I do understand the draw of the Classics line, and that's where redone G1 characters should stay. If TT doesn't get it's own line, then Universe would fit the bill.
    Just as long as they don't re-deco another horrid A/E/C figure with an LED and call it a TransTech character.

    Shockwave seems to be out in front - well and good:

    ...or are people just afraid that the 'morally ambiguous' chap will cut you open - for science, no less - if you disagree?


    I wonder, is there good art of the troopers that Shockwave commands?

    I've never cared for Transtech and was glad RiD was imported instead. I'd rather see a Universe Sky-Byte or new Scourge mold before any of the TT designs.
