    Robots that turn into cars and jets and stuff.

    What? Isn't transformation enough of a gimmick for you people?

    Well this, but I also really like when weapons can store inside bodies & shit instead of just... being there haah.

    Spring loaded missiles > decently sized and stowable weapons > automorph > mechalive.

    I don't like microns as part of the TF universe. exception being cassettes.

    Edit: Crap, forgot about combiners - yeah make that number 1.

    I see weapon storage as less a gimmick and more a feature, like articulation or quality transformation. My ideal figures has a weapon that stows in alt-mode (something G1 failed at utterly), but isn't REQUIRED for alt-mode (something almost all of Beast Wars failed at miserably).
