    The entire 3rd party shtick right now is to make G1 updates. Devastators, Sixshots, Minibots... But does anyone else want them to move on to any other properties? Like TFA, WFC/FOC, TFP, or the movies?

    I certainly do.

    I wouldn't mind seeing the three Outsiders from WFC/FOC being done as 3P toys.

    Hell, I'd rather see 'em as Hasbro toys; I've got Scattershot mostly cracked.

    Yes, but NO for the ones you named except for WFC/FOC.

    My preference? VICTORY.

    I want my:

    Star Saber
    LioKaiser
    Landcross
    Dinoking
    Road Caesar

    I would because I only collect movie toys. There are lots of movie characters that haven't come out as toys, but I can understand if 3rd party companies find them harder to make due to their vast detail...

    I wouldn't mind some TFA 3rd party fun, but I like that 3rd parties are doing G1 better than Hasbro and filling in the classics line. Hasbro's idea of a repaint with a G1 name isn't cutting it for me.

    Not "move on from G1" per se, but just "move on from 1984-1986". Let's get some Pretenders, Headmasters, Victory, and Euro-G1 up in this.

    Hell yeah! I'd kill someone in front of my own mamma to see some updated Unicron Trilogy characters. I can't even imagine the awesomeness of a fully poseable Armada Optimus Prime, Red Alert, Megatron, and most of all...Starscream!

    Those are some definite characters that deserve better toys. Hell, even some alternate limbs for the Energon combiners would be welcomed. I know Munitioner and Explorer were in that realm of thinking, but I mean some enhancements to the actual Energon combiners. Maybe an alternate set of two limbs that come with translucent and POSEABLE accessories! *Ahem* Nexus Maximus too!

    I don't think it's a matter of moving on so much as branching out. With so many different companies there is enough room on the playground for G1 updates and updates to every other corner of TFs. Even original designs are welcome, which FP has already starting doing (Steel Core).

    I was just thinking there are not enough G1 third party toys. Its all weapons and heads for TFPrime toys.

    Mostly the reason why they're doing G1 is to modernize them. Now, im all for that, but it would be nice to see some others, like TFA imo. So far the only non g1 3p that comes to mind is Genesis from Planet X. Personally the one id love to see the most is TFA Omega Supreme.

    Isn't most 3P stuff actually Classics? I wish they'd stick to MP G1 to "help" Takara releasing the whole cast, then they could move onto making whatever they want. :p

    Only if it's more Animated or maybe BW. And even then, only if they get the style right. I mainly only collect third party to fill in stuff for Classics. If they start doing other stuff I'll probably stop caring about it. Third party stuff is expensive and I can't just buy whatever for lines I only half care about like Prime and FOC.

    I think as of this moment, there are more collectors on classics than any other "series" if you will. So that's where most of the money's at.

    G1 and Animated are the only I'd buy. unless the WFC ones are G1-y.

    bring on Hotshot.. and Starscream!
    and basically all the characters. they had the coolest designs (in the show at least)

    oh wait.. no.. id be happy if we JUST got a figure for Armada Sideways!

    When they finish off the 84 cast they can do what ever they want. We still don't have a Trailbreaker/Hoist.

    Hell no. G1 Classic style updates in the 84/85 area are all I care about. Once I'm done with what I need they can move on though :D
