What do you deem an inferior mold that needs to be worked on by a 3rd Party company?

    So in another thread, I asked if people would switch from their Classics to 3rd Party figures as they came out. Many people said only if a superior product was released.

    So, I thought, maybe we should have a list of what we consider inferior mold needing a reboot. Here is my list:

    - The Seekers.
    - Classics Grimlock (I know many people do use MP for it)
    - Ironhide/Ratchet
    - Mirage (I know many people like him, but he doesn't scream Mirage to me)
    - Galvatron

    Let's hear yours.

    + these

    Galvatron
    If they redo seekers, they should upsize Astrotrain & Tankor
    An Ultra Class Jetfire would be nice
    Ultra Magnus with car carrier armor

    Rodimus. Take the Animated design and put the Gundam back into it, and boom you're done.

    Since Ironhide and Ratchet are (slowly) being worked on, the only other one I can think of would be a nice Voyager Galvatron. I'm fine with all the other Classics releases.

    All Classics,

    Blurr ( G1 design was very unique, his update is bland and generic and the robot mode is too cluttered for someone who's meant to be sleek & athletic . A new mold based on his Cybertronian look in his Spotlight issue would be much better. )

    Kup ( Should have looked more like he did in the G1 cartoon or some of the recent comic art. )

    Perceptor ( Alt mode is fugly. )

    Mirage ( Too scrawny in 'bot mode and has a pin head. )

    I don't want G1 slaves. I want classics updates:


    1. Seekers: need small Voyager size (have to be bigger than most deluxe). Need better articulation.
    2. Megatron: Kibble needs to go. Already being done via Hegemon
    3. Astrotrain, Octane: They deserve Voyager
    4. Galvatron: you kidding. Voyager mold necessary.
    5. Ratchet/Ironhide: already being done via igear.
    6. Grimlock: Already fine with MP as classics. I love that size. just do the other dinobots.
    7. Minibots: Igear got it covered.

    "edit" Ok reading the other posts I forgot about triple changers, Give us some triple changers. Top of my list for sure, would love a voyager sized blitzwing and astrotrain.

    Hands down we need a galvatron thats voyager size to atleast match FP rodimus.

    Anything after that would be
    gestalts
    Jetfire
    Thunder wing and sky shadow, maybe even ability to make IDW stormbringer armor
    Cliffjumper (I'm tired of add ons, give me a full damn figure)
    Dinobots (which are rumored to being worked on by more than one company)

    Let see we need a voyager sized tank megatron and an ultra sized triple changer galvatron, everything is below them, really we've had classices for 6 or 7 years now and the cons are still without a good leader toys of resonable size.

    I wouldn't mind seeing updates of all of them. The original waves of Classics are almost 6 years old and while they are great, the toys have come a long way since Cybertron was the main line. All of the molds from the original line could be better. If you removed the Cybertron repaints from Universe 2.0, most of the deluxe molds are alright, though of course Galvatron could be better. All of the Ultras could be done better. I think Inferno was the only new-mold Voyager in that line, and still one of my favorites.

    Galvatron and Grimlock are the main ones I want re-done by third parties. Hopefully the latter made with four other Dinobots. I hope the iGear ones turn out good.

    Rodimus Kup (igear needs to make a body that matches the quality of the head they made) and Galvatron.

    Would say seekers, but the FOC Starscream is looking really fantastic and is more than good enough for me.

    Seekers, Prime, Megs, Rodimus, Galvatron, Ironhide/Ratchet (in the vein of the iGear but smallish voyagers). The others will do for how significant they are, but these characters should not be overshadowed by newer toys by mere virtue of being old. They were great back then, but have aged. Except Ironhide, Ratchet and Galvatron, who weren't great even when released.

    Ideally I'd like Hasbro to redo the old Classics, but that heads us into dangerous circular update territory, so perhaps not.

    I've got nothing. I just think a 3rd party company needs to tackle Dino :)

    Hells yes.

    I'd replace the Fansproject set for a decent MTMTE style IDW Rodimus. That set was just too limited by the base figure, I'd love to see a scratch built Rodimus from that comic design.

    I agree,thats why i never got the classic version.Kinda big and fat to be a fast/sleck car.So i went with Animated Blurr.Blurr was never given a earth mode,so thats my excuse on why he looks different.

    I would like to see is a new UM armor.Make it more roundish instead of blockish or a new Rodimus armor,that whole thing looks like hammered shit(thats the reason i will never own one). Its still a hard call,98% of 3rd party stuff is good.

    Here's a few:

    Cybertron Leobreaker = I want a real hand mode, dammit!
    Animated Lugnut = make him leader-sized and get rid of the stupid axe
    Beast Wars Blackarachnia = a want a feminine figure, not Tarantulas in drag
    Transmetal 2 Cheetor = he looks terrible, not at all like the show model
    All of the Beast Machines maximals = the Vehicons were ok but the good guys sucked
    G1 Galvatron = needs to be bigger and more stable
    G1 Jetfire = Bump him up to ultra or leader size, please
