    I was just sitting here thinking about all of the great movie toys that were made of characters that never made it into the movie.

    What are your favorite "non-movie" movie toys and why? I'll start:

    My three favorites in this order are: Deluxe Landmine, Arcee, and Wreckage. these three are just great all around and I wish they would've made it into the movie. Hopefully they make the sequel.

    So what are your favorite movie toys of characters that never made it into the movie? Why? Did the toy leave you wishing they were in the movie?

    I really like Stockade. I think its simplicity is what I enjoy the most. (I also like Storm Surge but, as a Cybertron repaint, does it count?)

    real gear cell phone and camera, very microman like which is very poetic considering the origins of the G1 'real gear' type toys.

    I'm really digging Overcast for some reason. Maybe it's the black deco? Stockade is a great toy too...my fav of the AllSpark Power releases so far.

    In terms of looks, nothing beats Dropkick and Longarm.

    Is Wreckage that good? Does he have a complicated transformation. Is he fiddly and always loose?

    Black Arcee, Stockade, Longarm, Landmine, Evac, and Wreckage-the best weren’t even in the first installment. Those real gears could be nice for a Sector 7 side story of the next sequels…and they are all dope toys.

    Arcee, Evac, Landmine, Incinerator, and Thundercracker. I love all five of those, hard to pick a favorite between them.

    If Cliffjumper and Rescue Ratchet count (being repaints of movie characters) then they would be on the list as well.

    Also the four just-released Walmart exclusives Cybertron repaints.... but I think of them more as part of Universe than the movie line.

    Least favorite: Cell phone Real Gear guy, PSP Real Gear guy, Payload, and Wreckage. I know there's a lot of love for Wreckage, and I don't hate him by any means, but he really doesn't do much for me.

    Landmine
    Stockade
    Incinerator
    Longarm
    Dropkick
    Overcast
    Evac
    The Real Gears

    Honorable mention goes to Wreckage...It's a great mold overall but I hate the fact it has to lean back to look straight forward.

    Longarm, Stockade and Landmine. Nice, very nice. But I still need Stockade and Incinerator so the jury's still out.

    Landmine, Stockade and Longarm...but they are all kinda in the movie. Not interested in the completely non-movie movie stuff (Big Daddy doesn't count).
