    This came up in a recent thread. 2010 and 2011 are significant years.


    2010 is, well 2010. In Japan this was season 3.

    2011 is the 25th anniversary of Transformers The Movie.

    Seems like a good excuse to do something with those characters. What would you have them do?

    Classics/Universe Kup, based on Nick Roche's design.

    Was season 3 in Japan the same as season 3 here? Or was it Headmasters?

    I'd love some classics Headmasters and more Targetmasters.

    I can't really think of anything they could do for the movie. Maybe Junkions or battle damaged classics figure to represent their fatal injuries? Like Ratchet, Prowl, Ironhide and Brawn all smashed the hell up?

    Season 3 was called Transformers 2010 in Japan. Headmasters is basically the Japanese season 4.

    considering universe is going to come back in the fall of 2010 (nd crossing over into 2011), and likely henkei with it, we'll probably get some more season three characters, just because japan will probably want to do them.

    I'd like a proper magnus, springer, blurr, rodimus prime, and scourge. definately.

    A new mold MP, possibly one from Season 3.

    2010 has a new Universe line in Fall, so maybe a few G1 Season 3 characters in that line. Kup, Hot Rot, Wreck-Gar, Arcee, etc.

    In 2011, however, we are getting TF3. Not much space for the Universe line.

    I like the Henkei line, would like to see it continue with 1 or 2 bigger figures than voyagers. Broadside is an interesting character to tackle, a big triple changer.

    Classicsverse coming back will likely be the biggest thing for many of us, regardless of whether they include TFTM'86/Season 3 characters in it or not.

    I'd imagine for 2010, we'll see Takara re-issue a Season 3 character (pretty sure many were already covered though). And hopefully a Masterpiece Rodimus.

    Personally, I want a Classicsverse Arcee either next year or '11. That character has flat out NEVER gotten an official toy. Even Unicron eventually got the Armada figure.

    I think they should not get too heavy into the animated movie tributes. It was a bomb after all, and the toy line wasn't a big hit either. An MP Rodimus, one or two classics of Kup, Blurr, etc...and an Encore of Rodimus or Galvatron would be enough. Actually even all of that might be too much.

    By the way, I LOVED the 86 movie, but I don't let that get in the way of realizing it was a bomb, and knowing that animated movie related merch isn't going to make Has/Tak a lot of money. Proof: Unicron clogging shelves for years, and TF:The Movie not shattering any records on DVD or Blu-Ray.

    They should do movie characters repainted into completely new decos with no homage to past characters.

    Yep.

    We mean an official, show accurate transforming toy. Yes, the HOC was very close to the cartoon model, but lacks one aspect, transformation.

    Anything new would be good, considering Christmas is 30 days away what is there new to look forward to? Buster Prime and the Amazon.co.jp exclusive. Maybe ROTF Bludgeon.
    Seems a bit dry for a Christmas release schedule. Maybe I just bought all the stuff I wanted too soon.
