    Hasbro's support of FOC with toys is off to a stellar start with nearly a dozen molds coming over the next 6 months. Hasbro also seems to have covered their tracks with nice remolds in the Wreckers, Sideswipe, Magnus, and the Shockwave repaint. With Starscream on the way I'm sure we'll see his mates as well. Coupled with the five figures from WFC, we have a pretty solid assortment on both sides so far.

    So would you like to see even more FOC figures even well after the game's release? Or should they push Generations back towards more classics territory?

    Personally, I would like to see a few more characters from the game- not necessarily the whole lineup, but some significant characters that we haven't gotten so far.
    Specifically:
    -Deluxe Ironhide/Ratchet (can be mold mates)
    -Deluxe or Voyager Jetfire
    -Deluxe Skywarp/Thundercracker (given, I think)
    -Deluxe Warpath (maybe not as viable due to recent Classics mold)
    -Deluxe Breakdown
    -Voyager Megatron, new design
    -Voyager Optimus

    And that's it for me.

    I would love for them go further. There are a ton of G1 characters they could do. I want more Aerialbots, the Stunticons, rest of the Dinobots, Warpath, Perceptor etc..

    I'd be all for it.

    Enough of the G1 look to the robots to get me excited for characters I know, but Cybertronian modes to bring in all the fun of alien vehicles. With so many robots in the overall mythology it would be a while before they ran out of characters to use for the line.

    I think they should mix it a bit, give us the last of the season 1 - 3 main cast, if they can do combiner great if not well 3p's have it coverd now, then they can re do a lot of the characters they've already done in classics in their FOC forms.

    Fan's happy as they can have the full cast as they see it.
    Hasbro happy as fan's are buying both the classics ones and the FOC ones so they get to sell ever character at least twice.
    Kids... probably happy as they have a lot of cool toys to pick from but really who gives a fuck about them :)

    Same.

    Last Generations was 90% classics. It's time for something new.

    Indeed. Even if the toys were exact masterpiece replicas of what is in the game...well, what is in the game is not all that good.

    The Autobots definitely need more distinct molds. They've only gotten 3, everything else is retools (extensive retools, but retools just the same).

    The other Dinobots are must-haves, though I'd also like Barricade, Warpath, Jetfire, the other 2 Insecticons, Demolishor, Trypticon, and Omega Supreme.

    Yes yes yes, many times over, yes!

    I am in lesbians with the FoC style toys, I have WFC Megatron and Soundwave, and all eight FoC figures released thus far, and plan on getting more, including re(color/tool)s (especially that smexy Ultra Magnus!). I want the obvious Seeker recolors BADLY, as I want my Seekers updated from the various colors of the Movie 1 Voyager Thundercracker retooling (NO FINGERS! :( ).

    I desire the rest of the Dinobots severely (pretty much need Slug and Swoop the most, but desire Snarl, Sludge though I want as a Voyager).

    I'm not planning on getting the Voyager Soundwave until I see some real in-hand shots with size comparisons. I like the Deployer Minicon gimmick, but do not like the size (or at least, my perception of it, too big). Blaster looks interesting, and may grab as a standalone.

    Other desires: all the Stunticons in the games PLUS a Wildrider (we've already seen the other four in the mainline games); no, I do NOT necessarily want them to combine. I'd also love some Constructicons (while Combination would be cool, it is NOT necessary, but I would LOVE non-G1 colors, maybe more RotF inspired colors).

    I'd like an update on Bumblebee/Cliffjumper, to my understanding, the last one was very finicky, though I've never handled it. Ironhide/Ratchet would be nice, but not a necessity for me, same goes for Warpath.

    I have little doubt we'll not be seeing combining Protectobots, which I will SNAG THE HELL UP.

    Plenty more, but I want the Cybertronian styles to replace Classics styles for the non-show running line.

    EDIT: I'm also going to add Deluxe Barricade, Hound and Prowl, as well as Voyager Lugnut and Blackout to my list of desires. I also want to see characters from Exiles (i.e. Wreck-gar, Override, Blurr, other Junkions and Velocitronians, respectively.)


    I wholly agree with this sentiment

    I also agree with this, I'd like to see Bulk, Arcee and the TFP 'Cons get some game-style love.

    I'm OK with the design style of FOC.... but I'm also increasingly allergic to seeing more and more Cybertronian altmodes, so I'm going to have to say NO.

    No. I want them to do the opposite. Stop doing FoC crap and do a real Generations line that actually has things other than FoC. If it's just FoC toys they may as well just have named it FoC instead of Generations.

    I was excited when they announced "over 40 Generations," but that died down hardcore when it ended up just being a bunch of FoC molds and random ass redecos.
