    this is just a hyperthetical question, it can contain ones seen before and those not even thought of.

    i'd love to see a waspinator figure for instance where there's a button on the back that makes the head, legs and arms fly off the body. It's bizarre i know but it'd be damned near show accurate :lol

    Personally, I would like to see headmasters and targetmasters in the Univers line. Hidden weapons would be cool too. I'd rather stay away from full line gimmicks though.

    How about Robots that Transform into other things? That sounds like a great Gimmick!!

    Well, "hyperthetically" speaking, I'm not particularly fond of any lame full-line gimmicks. It has to be relevant to the character/show, as long as it's not dumb Minicons or Planet Keys.

    Bring back the Headmasters! I don't know why, but I always loved that addition to the line.

    I'd love to see a new fully articulated combiner made up of five separate Transformers who all have unique robot and vehicle modes.

    Non-partsformers/shellformers with multiple realistic modes. Triple is a good start, Astrotrain-style, but with current toy tech, they should be able to do more and better modes. Think Sixshot with all modes being realistic, perhaps even with a couple of the modes licensed, if not to the same scale.

    How about spring loaded spring loaded missle launchers. A spring to pop out the launchers and spring loaded missles in the launchers. That's a engineering gimmick I hav'ent seen yet but would like.

    That's been done, it was done with cybertron evac and to a better extent with my old favourite transformer Rotorstorm. (i loved him that much that he has become my net alias on here.

    Bring on the Headmasters and Targetmasters!

    But I wouldn't care if a whole line is devoted to just these two gimmicks. Given the level of articulation these days, these guys would be awesome. Just leave out the whole human/Nebulan backstory and make them all Cybertronians, with the HM being combiner variants and the TM being partners.

    How 'bout no spring-loaded crap that detracts from the transformation and/or articulation of the figure, or twirling crap that guarantees loose limbs.

    For examples, see Movie Barricade and Beast Machines Savage/Noble.

    More licensed products or at least very realistic alt modes.
