    So, if someone with an opportunity to mass produce an upgrade, add-on, or accessory to any existing Transformer, what would it be?

    There are several companies more frequently producing awesome fan-supported products, such as the UM armor, or their newer sets (shoulder missiles, etc)

    Some (generic) examples I was thinking of:

    - energon sword which would fit in most deluxe sized figures
    - rocket launcher which would fit in most deluxe sized figures

    so do you have any more specific ideas? I've heard a few, but looking for more.

    Large Generic Laser rifles. They could come like a mixed assortment or even kit form, but you could customize them yourself by painting them, and they'd fit any standard TF fist hole. My Classics BB needs a gun, how can he have a fireblast rating of 4 without a gun?

    I like what i hear about the hands and feet for the energon Superion and Bruticus, so Devastator hands and feet would be good.

    Some better swords would be what i want. Something along the lines of the "Gerbera Straight".

    I'd vote for hand weapons like pistols and swords. You used to be able to buy weapons packs for GIJoe through mail-away back in the day, so something like that would be cool for TF's (just not at Club prices). I'd NEVER pay more than the figure's retail price for an upgrade or add-on.

    Some thing to make the G1 combiners more posable would be cool, like parts swap them or somethin.

    I would go for real hands and feet for the energon combiners and kick ass looking swords for general transformer usage.

    I agree with most of the above sentiments, and I'dd like to add smaller, pistol-sized firearms for deluxe figures. I miss the extra parts that G1 figures came with...There were always guns, and they didn't always have to integrate into the alt mode. Something else I'd be interested in are display stands of some sort. I saw the insignia that you cast, which reminded me of the 3-inch titaniums' clear bases.

    Also, I really need a right fist for my Predaking... Haha, I like your work, though, so if you start producing accessories I'd definitely be interested, as they'd be more accessible than some of the others we've been seeing, and I could use some generic weapons.

    As everyone has said, "WEAPONS". pistols, blasters, knives, mini guns, rifles and swords. If it can kill (not literally) we want it.

    Or just like accessory items to make things more accurate like heads, chest pieces, or even head crests.

    ^totaly agree. Weapons, targetmasters, and heads would be my top three.


    And the hands and feet thing will be awsome, but pricy.

    The lower the price for a set, the bigger the chance more can afford it, so you'd need to take that in consideration.

    I would love show-accurate bicep guns for Animated Voyager starscream, even if I had to mod with magnets to attach them

    Some targetmasters would be great :D  Some more heads would be cool too, like a Goldbug head that can fit onto Classic Bumblebee's body. A gun-hand that can somehow attach to Animated Shockwave's arm would be interesting. Also, a generic looking round sheild would be nice.

    Some of the add-ons have been really neat, but I personally am part of the camp that thinks it's not really worth it to pay far more than the original toy costs for add-ons. For something like the City Commander add-on armor, I can see that being more expensive but I still thought the $90 or whatever was far too much.

    Yeah, I'd go for a set of Classics/Universe weapons. The only thing I'd want out of that Gears of War (or whatever it's called) set is the Inferno ladder, the auto-scout's not bad either. But the shoulder cannon/rifles... not caring for those.

    Unproduced accessories seen in the various recent shows like Rodimus' flag in Energon, stuff like that.
