    My Idea would be a Stuntacon repaint as Autobots

    Motermaster as Optimus Prime
    Drag Strip as Mirage
    ect....

    and for decepticons have Superion repaint as Decepticons.


    that is all I can think of

    I want to see those Cybertron -> Beast Wars repaints that someone posted as photoshops a while back. Those were neato burrito. Or maybe they can release the cancelled universe Drench.

    Maybe a voyager class Cyb Sunstorm? That'd be hot. I could see them repainting C-Landmine into a Constructicon, I could go for that. Hell, maybe even blue and yellow Scrapmetals. :p

    Here's one idea fitting into the scheme they used last year but replacing 1 Ultra with 2 Deluxes and have 1 Deluxe instead of 2 Basics as the "small" extra exclusive:

    8 Figure Boxset: "Arise Deathcobra, Arise"
    Liokaiser(Energon gestalt):
    Leozak(Stormjet--torso)
    Gaihawk(Windrazor--arm)
    Hellbat(Windrazor--arm)
    Deathcobra(Blackout-leg)
    Killbison(Blight-leg)

    vs.

    Beachcomber(Cyb. Hardtop)
    Anatomical-colored Torca
    Braver(E. Downshift)

    Bonus: Drillhorn(Blight)
    Small Extra: G1 Grotesque(Torca)
    Large Extra: Jagura(Cyb. Hardtop) vs. Laster(E. Downshift)(2 Downshift repaints form Roadcaesar)

    As forgettable as the last set - that way I won't have any regrets about skipping them because I refuse to support the non-attendee set as it is.

    a Repaint of Fatboy Prime into Nemesis Prime! or even a repaint of Cybertron Prime to NP.... a Repaint/remold of Vector Prime into Cyclonus.

    a Repaint of Thrustscream(smaller starscream from Cybertron) into skywarp !

    or the Noisemaze production type repaint of Sideways! but still calling it Noisemaze.

    Or offer the Sword for the Binaltech/alt black Convoy(Nemesis Prime).

    An the final thing- a repaint and remold of BW10th Megatron into Cybertron Grimlock!

    A return to the individual toys as opposed to the pricy box set format that sticks you with figures that you don't want.


    Chances of that happening? Shit in one hand and want in the other, see which one fills up first.

    Ebay:
    More than anything in the world what I would like from this year's set is to <i>not have to pay the same price for them as someone who is GOING TO THE CONVENTION.</i> Sorry, it doesn't matter how you try spin that, it doesn't make business sense. Don't try to force me to pay for something I'm not getting or subsidize services I'm not using.

    Also, how about making those 'convention only' pieces available to club members? One way or the other, I'm going to get them - so why won't you let me put that money in <b>your</b> pocket Fun Productions, instead of some scalper on eBay?

    All that aside, Energon & Cybertron have given us TONS of great molds, so I'd welcome just about anything from those lines, provided they are well thought-out.

    This is available at most KB outlets, or was there another one besides the 'Halloween" version?

    Being slightly more in the spirit of the question, things that would actually make me feel bad about not buying the set would be -

    The cancelled Defensor Rid Prime repaint with the new head (but with the colour scheme changed to be less pointlessly busy) and a new RiD Magnus (maybe red and called Overload).
    Skywarp and Thundercracker repaints of the Galaxy Force Starscream mold
    Toys that were from Cybertron and were explicitly nice new characters that were supposed to be in that continuity, and nothing to do with any hellish Universe mess.

    But, as with Ams above, unless there's a remarkable change of heart on their side they're not getting any of my money.
