    Okay...so it seem that there is usually alot of disgust with the TCC and their annual lack of Animated figures/homages in their Botcon & TFSS sets...its been brought up that the club doesn't have faith that Animated would sell good...fans of Animated would probably believe it'd sell better than the various non-Animated choices every year...Animated detractors might argue against this...l figured why not open a topic where fans of Animated can create there own concepts of a perfect Animated set that they would be proud to purchase...along with optional backstories and digibashes...and all others can comment and critique freely on each set...figure this could give us a true idea of where Animated stands...at least here on TFW...

    ^^ Well l'm not a huge MTME fan nor am l in to Animated at this stage of collecting...the molds do match up for the chosen characters...personally the only one that'd interest me would be "Darkwing & Dreadwing/Darkwing - Jetfire & Jetstorm/Safeguard"...

    I saw a really awesome Wasp custom made from Bumblebee, and after seeing the Season 3 ep where Wasp switches places with Bee, I can't help but feel that it'd be one of the simplest figures to make for fandom: simply customize the paintjob, and create a new custom head.

    Or for that matter, make a Cliffjumper.

    I want to get a complete '86 Movie cast in Animated form. Half the characters were already done. Now we just need:

    Springer from Sentinel Prime w/new head
    Kup from Optimus Prime (Deluxe)
    Wheelie from Hydrodive Bumblebee w/new head

    The Decepticons are a bit harder.

    Galvatron from Megatron (Voyager) w/new head
    Cyclonus from Starscream w/new head
    Scourge from Waspinator (homaging Beast Wars Scourge instead of G1 Scourge because there's just no existing Animated mold that even comes close)
    Sharkticon from Blackout

    personally I think the Cybertron mode Ratchet could make for a better Sharkticon, and to build upon your 86 Animated idea....Blitzwing as a Quintesson Judge? he may not have the tentacle, but the face swapping gimmick could make it work.

    To be honest, Blackout-as-Sharkticon was a spur-of-the-moment addition that I didn't put much thought into. I just said, "There should be a Sharkticon, what mold might fit him? That Blackout was pretty rotund and threatening-looking," and onto the list he went.

    Troop-builder set would be more Waspinators in G1 Insecticon colors.

    I was also into the idea of an Animated Wreckers set. I had down Impactor from Swindle with a new head and Rack'n'Ruin from Jetfire and Jetstorm. I believe I started digibashes of them (don't remember if I ever finished them), but I recall I tried to make Rack'n'Ruin's combined robot form look like the In-Betweener from Marvel Comics, in one of those really off-the-wall homages.

    I would LOVE more animated figures. However, I'd say mix in semi-obscure with more popular characters.

    I know a lot of folks aren't too fond of SG, BUT the show was actually gonna do that in it's 4th season if it hadn't been cancelled. So that's the theme I would go with, so we'd get figs of what we would've gotten to see.

    Some examples from TFW's wallpaper galleries:

    Animated Shattered Glass Goldbug 1600 x 1200.jpg - Animated Shattered Glass Goldbug - TFW2005.COM

    Animated Shattered Glass Optimus Prime 1600 x 1200.jpg - Animated Shattered Glass Optimus Prime - TFW2005.COM

    Animated Shattered Glass Megatron 1600 x 1200.jpg - Animated Shattered Glass Megatron - TFW2005.COM

    Animated Shattered Glass Starscream 1600 x 1200.jpg - Animated Shattered Glass Starscream - TFW2005.COM

    I wouldn't mind some Shattered Glass if it meant I could get more Animated. Derrick J. Wyatt did some great SG designs that I'd love to see.

    [​IMG]


    As far as other Animated figures I'd love to see would be:

    A 3 pack of Smokescreen, Bluestreak and a clear/blue "Ghost Prowl" from the Prowl mold. Most of the others are the obvious and oft repeated characters from many Animated wish lists. Wasp and Cliffjumber from Bumblebee.

    Thundercracker

    [​IMG]

    Sky Byte

    [​IMG]

    Venom

    [​IMG]

    And perhaps a white "Electromagnetic" Soundwave (which would also work as Shattered Glass Soundwave - like past TFCC white Soundwaves)

    [​IMG]

    Or maybe Blaster from Soundwave and Hound from Swindle.
