    For the love of god, Please make better versions of smokescreen, wheeljack, dreadwing, and knockout. I would literally sell my kidneys and my lungs for improved versions of these guys.

    Agreed, my dear friend. Agreed.

    Smokescreen could take some ques from his Legion class figure, mainy the torso. I'd love if they modded the roof kibble so they can clip on and off the arms and back. There is a way to redo the feet, but since I no longer have that toy I can't design how.
    Wheeljack, well, all they need to do is redo the arms in my personal opinion and add waist rotation. The legs, feet, head, chest, and hands are okay - we just need better arms somehow and waist rotation.
    For Knockout I'm going wait to see what Legacy does so we can see if it has more improved or unique transformation that APC can use themselves.
    Dreadwing I have no opinions on, I have not had the Voyager, but the Cyberverse Commander.

    Wouldn't go that far, bucko. I agree improved figures of Ultra Magnus is needed, Cliffjumper needs an entire new mold that fuses RID and FE somehow, Predaking only needs the Shapeways upgrades, Sky Lynx and Darksteel could be mold mates with SL having further tooling. Scream, I'm assuming they'll do the FE. If not, then I am entirely screwed.

    Same I would love to own the FE mold and it's my favorite design for Cliff just it's so expensive to find (I doubt they'd have to upscale him so that would be good).

    They do need to get rid of that clear plastic for his neck though.

    At that price of a leader class I expected their Vehicon versions to have at least a waist joint. They really got lazy and greedy. And apparently we won't have a metallic version of Soundwave either.

    To be fair, it’s $40, so between the price of a voyager and leader class.

    He's the same price as the other Deluxes they've put out though, so it's not like they've upped the price because it's a popular troop builder.

    What was wrong with Wheeljack? If they continue to include the Dr. Wu upgrades like they have with their other releases he'll have his unmasked face, blasters which correct the gaps in the car bumper, and better swords, and I really can't think of anything more to ask from the figure.

    I mean, I've accepted the price hikes myself. But regardless I can't help but always think "Leaders are 40$, Voyagers 20$, Deluxes 10$, Scouts 5$..." Immediately after that thought I remember, "Oh wait, that was decades ago and everything's different now," and don't have much issue with the price hikes, not really complaining. But those old prices are just hard-wired into my head, probably forever.

    I always wait on sales so those are still the the prices for me. Besides, figures that used to be $40 are far closer to being $50 figure than today’s actual $50 figures.

    I usually try to do something similar with anything I feel is over-priced.

    Sometimes I use credit card points, other times store points, sales, etc.

    Last year Rodimus Prime and the Ark were essentially free for me thanks to both credit card and store points.

    After they release the holy grail Bulkhead i'd like a Breakdown to go with him.

    The articulation on the old toy is terrible. He needs to have two hammers like on the show and they can remove all stickers and replace with paint.

    Knockout would require a whole new figure his old one can not be fixed. Not sure if this company can do that.

    This would be way far off and will probably get me crucified by some, but I'd actually love if they upgraded some of the RiD 2015 figures after they're done with TFP. Figures like Strongarm and Soundwave would be perfect with just a little tweaking.

    IF they ever go past TFPrime figures, I'd certainly like to see them improve on RID figures...Decepticons in-particular. Many of the Cons were too damn small, and I'd love to see them up-scaled as well as have better paint-jobs.

    I'm still holding out hope that PX will remold their Vulcan into RID Grimlock though....that would be freaking awesome if they did that!

    I always wanted a Grimlock from PX out of their Vulcan ever since I saw the similarities between RID15 and FoC Grims. Especially when Grimstone (my name for RID15 Grimlock due to my story purposes) was a heavy retool of FoC Grimlock. I can also see Scowl being retooled from their Snarl.

    On another note, I'd love to see a Voyager-scale Steeljaw and Thunderhoof and a leader or new-Commander-scale Underbite.

    TakTom showed that remolding FOC Grimmy into RID Grimmy looks great, I just wish that PX would do the same before retiring that mold forever.

    Oh well, dare to dream.

    An upscaled RID Warrior Class Soundwave the size of Voyager TFP Shockwave or APC Megatron would be very nice.
