    What do you think your dream Transformer figures are?

    In simple terms, and it can be far fetched or not, what do you wish HasTak would release that you never thought could be possible? We all see customs of incredible talent in the Radicons section, but most of them are simply one of kind figures that could never see mass retail release.

    For example, is your dream figure something that's been discussed before like a Supreme Class TFA Omega Supreme? Is your dream figure something that's never been done before (to my knowledge) like a Dinobot Triple Changer?

    A thread like this pops up every now and then, so hopefully this will bring about some good discussions and new ideas. Wishful thinking is welcome!

    I've got a big list of Masterpieces I'd love to see done.
    Since we got Grimlock, how about giving us the rest of the Dinobots?
    Since we got Optimus Prime and soon to come Rodimus, how about the rest of the Autobot cars? I'd love to see/have the following.
    Sideswipe, Red Alert, Jazz, Wheeljack, Smokescreen, and Tigertrack.
    Okay, these are just wishfull thinking figures here. But here's where my dream comes into play.
    All the said cars will be fully detailed, opening doors, trunks, hoods, similar to Alternators but much more detailed and precise. LED's all over the car giving complete detail and realism. Even the instrument panel should light-up. In robot mode, their eyes should light up as well, including their weapons should have LED's in them.
    They should have ton's of articulation everywhere. Fingers, pointing, giving the thumbs up, flipping the bird, giving you the Vulcan greeting.
    Back to car mode, rubber tires, suspension, license plates, windshield wipers, antennas etc. I mean really. Load these suckers up with full details! I'd pay $200 for each of these figures.
    Not only would they be same scale as Alternators, 1/24, but then how about having smaller scale counterparts? How awesome would it be to have these in 1/43 scale?

    Oh, forgot to add, on Red Alert, his roof sirens should function as well. Not just light up, but flash and maybe some sound effects?

    A microcassette recorder "Classics" Soundwave.

    Apparently that is wishful thinking to want one.

    I would like a true modern update of G1 Optimus Prime w/ Trailer & Roller. A modern version of Prime that is void of any movie design cues, one that does not have a bunch of blocky kibble on his forearms or an awful vehicle mode with legs that don't collapse.. one that don't have a teeny tiny head because it was squeezed into a diminutive size class.. an Optimus Prime that isn't hindered by gimmicks, lights & sounds.. one that has a proper paint deco- no blue shoulders, yellow knees or silver faction symbol.

    A Broadside figure with (only) an aircraft carrier alt mode that is large enough to interact with Legends-sized jets. So pretty large. Sort of like an Armada Tidal Wave that isn't, you know, an Armada figure.

    I love that Blaster update idea as well.

    I Bigger movie boncrusher.
    A bigger than supreme Fort Max with better articulation.
    I like the Broadside idea.
    The remaining 4 dinobots as MP to keep grimmy company.
    Leader Class movie Blackout i know thats a common one but he looked so awesome in the film and the voyager is a good figure but does not do him any justice.
    I love the MP Autobot cars idea.
    More of the ROTF Kitchen bots to go with Ejector.
    A classics devastator that uses all 6 Constructicons with better articulation.
    More WFC figures at least a Seeker mold.
    More modern versions of Beast Wars characters like a new Rhinox for example.
    Trains. More train transformers. There have been a few and i think they were all cool figures and i would love to see some more good ones. Hell even a new classics Raiden.
    Hell new combining versions of all the classic gestalts!

    Thats about all i can think of for now.

    Let's see here...

    -Energon Starscream repaints- Now that I own this figure, I want more of it. Problem is, none of non-Botcon repaints of the figure interest me, and only one of the Botcon repaints even vaguely interests me. I've got plenty of repaint ideas for this figure, but I doubt it'll be repainted again. Skywarp, Thundercracker, Sunstorm, Movie tattooed Starscream...

    -Non-Movie related Supreme class figure- At least for the next year or two. Then, and maybe then, we could get a larger-than-leader-class figure that isn't tied to the movies.

    -Anything Animated related that isn't already produced- This goes for new molds as well as repaints. We'll be lucky if the one's they've already produced get released as it is.

    -10th Ann. RID line- As much as I'd love to see it, I can't see them doing it. I think that since they did it for Beast Wars, that RID should get something similar. If at the very least a wave or two of themed repaints. Side Burn and Sky-Byte have been updated by FP. Hasbro should at least do the same for a couple more of them.
