    "Transformers: 2010"

    The story would take place after the Rebirth cartoon (season four of the eighties show) and would be an official continuation of the cartoon continuity set in the year 2010.

    Of course the characters don't have to be solely from the cartoon, new characters could be introduced to the cartoon continuity even if they have always been around like Bludgeon and Thunderwing.

    I'd like them to not reuse A/E/C molds like they have for the last few years.

    Give us something from the Animated or Classics 2.0 molds (bearing in mind that the movie molds can't be used).

    Not much to choose from. What bugs me is that Hasbro's used mostly all the good molds. I really hope that FP does a good job next year with the colors and character choices.

    Transformers Animated - Rise of the Wreckers

    - Most of the included figures would be intended to represent the elite Autobot commando unit The Wreckers. The Decepticon figure would be a redeco of the Voyager Starscream mold as Liar/"Ramjet".

    And low, the Animated collectors would unite in a cry of nerd rage.

    I don't know... I guess if you were going to continue off of rebirth... than you could look to Headmasters/Masterforce/Victory and the Marvel Comics for inspiration. Though, considering the lack of any Nebulons/Minicons in recent sets... you'd have to do something similar to Weirdwolf and Dreadwind from the 2007 set story wise. Which, would be fine with me... was never really a fan of the 'humans/nebulons in exosuits' angle used in Rebirth and the Marvel Comics.

    I really love the 'Return from Nebulos' idea that was thrown out there. Very nice IMPO.

    A Diaclone set, more Shattered Glass (Universe 2.0?), or an Animated expansion set would make me happy.

    EDIT: Those digibashes are awesome!

    Comic or show only charicters like Impacter or is it Impactor, Maccarb, Defcon any of them well deserve toys and are sadly lacking them.

    Before we found out the 09 set was the elite guard and everyone was speculating a possible wreckers set. I totally wanted an Impactor figure.

    And either Hasbro or Funpub needs to do Tidal Wave with a remolded head into Broadside already. Sheesh.

    Though I dont like Animated I would like to see a set with the toys, mostly as I could probably flip it on eBay for some serious coin seeing as everyone would want one.
