    UPDATED:

    The third Transformers Live-Action film is now upon us. Time is running out, and even though Hasbro speaks of expanding the film franchise to a fourth film (and beyond), for all we know it could be a complete reboot with a whole new look in regards to how all the robots appear (though, according to Don Murphy, not likely since it would mean redoing everything, which costs money). This could soon be the end of complicatedly complex Michael Bay Transformer designs. So for while we still have time to let our voices be heard and for toys of this unique style to be made, I ask of you:

    Q: What are your top 5 most-wanted Movie Bots that have yet to get a transforming toy?

    -List your absolute top 5, and then any others list as "honorable mentions" after that (y'know, the ones that almost made the cut but still need mentioning). Feel free to give reasons and explanations as to why you would like to see them get a transforming toy.

    -IF YOU MUST (and I know you will), feel free to also list any other toys you would like to see of characters who already have toys, but in size classes they currently do not have toys in (Leader Shockwave, LEader Truck Megatron, Leader Ratchet, Cyberverse Driller Playset, Wreckers in car or Stealth Force modes, etc.).

    -------------------------

    Mine are:

    1. Dispensor (Dispensor - Transformers Wiki)

    -He turns into a soda machine!
    -Like Ejector, he has been used in promotions for the film.
    -He had his own online game.
    -He can shoot soda cans!

    2. Flatline (Flatline - Transformers Wiki)

    -He's the mad Doctor Frankenstein of the Transformers Live-Action Universe.
    -He turns into a 1960's Hearse!
    -He made Arcee into the 3 Bike sisters.
    -He just looks damn evil. You know he's thinking up something diabolical.

    3. Nokia-bot (Nokia-bot - Transformers Wiki)

    -I'm surprised we didn't get this in the Real-Gear line.
    -He has a very unique robot mode.

    4. Overload (Overload (ROTF) - Transformers Wiki)

    -He has 2 alternate robot modes, both of which look awesome.
    -You can never have too many movie Constructicons.

    5. Scrapper (Scrapper (ROTF) - Transformers Wiki)

    -You can never have too many movie Constructicons.

    Honorable Mention:

    6. Hightower (Hightower (ROTF) - Transformers Wiki)

    -He got such a strange robot mode and a vehicle mode we don't see used very often.
    -You can never have too many movie Constructicons.

    Existing Toy Characters for other size Classes:

    7. DOTM Leader-Class Megatron

    -Necessary for all the DOTM Leader Optimus Primes we are getting, and he would look great next to Leader-Class Sentinel Prime.
    -The damaged part of his face should light up with his eyes.
    -Aside from his tarp, he NEEDS to come with his shotgun and some metal chains to wrap around his broken torso (or at the very least some chain details sculpted into his torso).
    -The shotgun will fire 1 missile and like Sentinel Prime's shield/cosmic-rust cannon, have some transforming "Mech-Tech" ability.
    -As another accessory, he could include a little Igor figure if he ends up not having much when compared to the other DOTM Leaders.

    8. DOTM Leader-Class Shockwave

    -Like Leader-Class BumbleBee and his separate "Stealth-Force" weapons pack, Shockwave's figure should not contain electronics, allowing it to have an unhindered transformation and his trademark arm cannon should be a separate electronic component of his toy.
    -The arm cannon will feature electronic lights & sounds and fire 1 missile.
    -The electronic arm cannon should be removable (like on the voyager) and like Leader-Class BumbleBee and his weapons pack, is able to be transformed and integrated into Shockwave's vehicle mode, allowing him to have a 3rd "Stealth-Force" mode.

    I know you said that have "yet to get a transforming toy", but I can't think that much tonight, so I'm gonna go with ones I'd like to see in general:

    1. Leader Blackout - Like everyone...

    2. Leader Scavenger/Demolishor (white, irregardless) - For how cool of a bot he was, his Voyager mold was pretty meh. Would really like to see him get a Leader treatment.

    3. Overload

    4. Scrapper

    5. A screen accurate Elita-1 - She definitely deserved her own mold, and with colors that were actually close to the movie.

    Honorable Mentions: A remold of Bumblebee's 1974 alt mode - This could be wicked awesome, especially if modeled kind of like BBBB. Also probably could dig it if they did a Scout-sized Frenzy that transformed into the CD player. They kind of had one, but it was really sh*tty-looking.


    I'm sure there's others I'd like, I'm just way too tired to think lol.

    *Edit* Oh yeah, and Hightower.

    Here are some I would like to have seen made.

    Alice-con from ROTF.
    The picture of the old Model T that Simmons showed Sam
    Also as you mentioned the Mountain Dew Bot from the first movie.
    Blender Bot when Sam dropped the shard and all the little machines started wreaking havoc.
    And finally the most important The Cube,it was such a big part of the first movie they should make it with lights and stuff,and no not a fanmade version but official.

    Deluxe Dispensor - Sheer uniqueness, kickass design

    Honorable mentions -

    Voyager Bonecrusher
    Voyager Jetfire

    -Scrapper
    -Dispensor
    -Decepticon Protoform (alt mode would be a comet like the preview Prime/SS)
    -The blender Kitchen bot

    I'd actually probably take Dispensor too, for the record. The Xbox 360 bot would be cool too actually.

    My Top 5 Most-Wanted Movie Bots:

    1) Deluxe Dispensor
    2) Voyager Bonecrusher -- I feel his Deluxe toy is a joke, he needs a Voyager figure
    3) Leader Blackout -- like, who doesn't want a Leader Blackout?
    4) Scout Frenzy -- the FAB toy is kinda ugly
    5) Human Alliance Sideways

    Frankly, I can't think of five movie-bots who haven't gotten toys yet (Hasbro's had to make up characters based off of vehicles from the film to get enough characters, although considering that gave birth to the Landmine mold I'm not complaining). I can think of many that need a bigger size class (like I'm gonna open THAT can of crack-infused psycho worms), but overall there's already a ton of figures that I'm happy with. Although I also wouldn't mind a rerelease of that Recon Ironhide mold.

    Technically, all seven Constructicons did get "proper" transforming toys. Legends ROTF Devestator can only be formed with all of them, and he was sold as an exclusive to either WM or TRU (can't remember which one) and was pretty damn hard to find.

    I strongly agree about more Constructicons
    I'd have quite liked a 1970's Bumblebee redone again (better) and also a repaint/remould as Windcharger.

    I also like the idea of a Ratchet repaint as a Decepticon (payload) that was in the 3D card game. a movie Hound would be good too and also the Hummer HX that got an RPM toy needs a toy too.

    We finally got a Stryker/Striker so I'm happy about that lack being filled - but it would still make for a good scout toy that was a mix of the RPM - stealth force and Human Alliance toys..

    Some more of the Appliance bots as legions would be nice too - perhaps they could make a legion combiner out of Appliance bots.

    Oh and an Alice Human Alliance figure would be nice too.

    I saw someone make an over-scale Scorponok custom and I think that was rather cool idea it's great to menace Gi Joe or human alliance scale toys. I'd like to see something like that as a gift set piece.

    Xbox-bot and Dispensor would be cool too - I often wonder what adventures those got up to post 2007.

    as much as I dislike movie bumblebee, I'd love to see him in scout size, thats pretty much it, though.

    I'd really like to see more random mixed aesthetic (kind of a demented g1 feel) decepticon designs like mindwipe. Those are probably some of favorite figures to come from the movie lines. ( I want more decepticons in general though. Classics especially needs some decepticon cars)
