If u had the Choice over the new 3rd Party which would it be?
If I had my own third party company, what would I make? Is that what you're asking?
Oh wait. I'd make figures based off of the original Transformers from IDW. Nova, Zeta and Sentinel Primes. Pharma, Turmoil, Rung etc...
I would make some cool weapons and add ons for a reasonable price. They wouldn't have to be chrome, they could be black or gray plastic. Our bots are in a war, they need more guns! A ten pack of 10 different kinds of weapons for $9.99 is doable and reasonable.
As far as characters go I would make a good classics style Blaster and Blitzwing. Also I would make Classics versions of the rest of the Dinobots.
Updated takes on the characters from Transformers Armada. An Armada Starscream and Megatron with modern articulation and features would be awesome.
This is what I would do.
If I had my own 3rd party company, I would focus on making knockoffs of figures that Hasbro designed but never put out...Transtech, Beast Wars Neo Unicron, Titanium Shockwave and Cosmos, etc. My secondary focus would be making figures of comics only characters - Impactor, Rack N Ruin, Scrounge, and the like.
Beast Wars upgrades and classics style figures of characters never made, like Alpha Trion, etc.
But mainly BW.
A complete War Within line!
Another idea...but I know many people won't agree.
I'd like to see an upgrade set for Energon Constructicon Maximus / Superlink Buildron / "Classics" Constructicon Devastator.
I know, I know. Too much Devastator stuff already, and what we are getting and have gotten is already superior. But c'mon. He's lonely. He's the only one that hasn't gotten an upgrade set. It doesn't have to be as lofty or as involved as the Bruticus set...but just something so we can display him proudly.
Same thing with Nexus Maximus. Give us some proper hands and feet like the Club comic showed.
Top of my list would be,
Masterpiece Sludge,Snarl,Slag and Swoop
( Wouldn't be cheap but imagine how awesome the displays would be. )
( TFC's Devastator needs someone to scrap with. )
IDW Spotlight Cybertronian Blurr
( Generations/United Blurr is shit from the neck down. )
Wheeljack with Lancia Stratos alt mode and less stumpy looking 'bot mode.
( Generations/United WJ is mediocre at best. )
( My version would be a LOT bigger than a crappy Deluxe. )
Nothing but Animated toys. There's way too much focus on G1.
I would make target masters. People want more weapons, and by turning into robots, they're more fun than just ordinary weapons packs.
there would be a focus in customization. Different parts compatible with each other. Swappable head, pannels, limbs. Changes in vehicle parts would change tranformations and robot mode.
Everything would have to be really well thought out, but customization really appeals to me.
I would make all new molds micromasters/WST/minicons sized and styled figures, the small size would make the costs lower for manufacturing and selling and since they would be for adult collectors they could be quite intricate without having to have oversized missiles.
They would have beast modes, never before seen vehicles, combiners, targetmasters, headmasters, powermasters, hell even breastmasters!
Redo Classics figures. About the same scale with masterpiece-grade figure like iGear's PP05.
focus on masterpiece stuff.
to start, since soundwave, shockwave and blaster have already been tabbed by another company...
