    Does anyone think we'll get a toy of someone like Devcon? The G1 season 2 character... It's a long shot, but he was sort of interesting and would add a new face to the line. I know there are plenty of others to do first (Blitzwing, Trailbreaker, Skids, Insecticons, Etc. Etc.) But what are your thoughts on this guy or any other potential randoms?

    I am just waiting for Jhiaxus. If we got Straxus he may come soon.

    With the number of obscure characters getting toys, the gates are open for anyone to get a figure release. I personally want to see some of the Armada figures be re-release with updated designs.

    I think it's fun to mix things up with someone obscure! The only reason characters become obscure, is because most people aren't familiar with them, and the only way to solve that, is to use them more often! :D 

    There's plenty of characters that could use an update, from G1 Scrouge to Armada Scavenger!

    It seems like Hasbro is aware of this too; after all, Classics Thunderwing's instructions show Black Shadow's head and chest instead of Thunderwing's design!

    Any character is possible! The way I see it, the more the merrier! :D

    Devcon had the chance twice to get made and they cancelled both, one was a BM Mirage repaint and the other was a Energon Slugsliner retool.


    I think Generations Scourge would make a excellent Devcon, Also I'd love to see Impactor and Emirate Xaaron get made as well.

    I'd really like to see that happen. Perhaps a Blurr repaint?

    Impactor please, just F'ing do it,
    could use that universe megatron mold (perfect)
    or even let botcon or some other convention do it,

    I must say as well that with the marvel crossovers there is so much potential to re-deco some of the molds into other characters (capt america into roadbuster would be sweet)
    but i guess seeing as this hasnt been done at all, there much be some licensing law, marvel hold the exclusive rights to the mold per-say

    Maybe Renderform or Headrobots could do a Devcon head for gen Blurr/Scourge?

    I totally agree. That RiD repaint named "Jhiaxus" is definitely not good enough but I'm not holding my breath. I'd also luv a Classics Devcon, Impactor, Botanica & more Fembots but Arcee deserves a Classics figure first & foremost.

    I like the idea of Generations Scourge redecoed/remolded into Devcon. If Hasbro/Takara can't do it, maybe FunPub can pull it off as next year's free club figure or something. Since a bunch of the redecos/remolds are still on the table (Terradive, Tomahawk, Thunderwing, Scourge, Warpath, etc.) than perhaps we'll see Devcon or something else sometime later this year.

    Xaaron and Impactor would be my first choices.

    Skids is pretty obscure, I'd like to see a new version of him in the classics range adhering to his old character design. I love the vintage G1 toy, and to see that with better articulation would make my year.

    I do like the idea of some more of the comics-only characters. Scrounge would be good for the lulz, but he didn't really appear much anyway. A Legends Cosmos redeco could do it, though.

    Xaaron and Impactor, definitely. I can see Xaaron working well as a Classics tank-Megs redeco, since he wasn't that big anyway.

    Flame could be a good one as well. WFC Megatron, perhaps?

    I have been hoping for a Devcon since the obscure characters started surfacing.

    I'm surprised no 3rd party group has jumped on him. I would assume he is in very high demand by collectors.
