    From specific manufacturers:
    Powerglide - Badcube, same style as their Warpath, Voyager class
    Quake, targetmaster - Maketoys Remaster style, Leader class
    Dreadwind and Darkwing - already teased by Maketoys, possibly Ultra class

    Masterpiece real car size/style:

    G1 Based:

    Stunticons - Ferrari 308 GTB, Porsche 928, Tyrell P34, Countach
    Stepper - Porsche 935, targetmaster
    Cliffjumper - Porsche 924
    Windcharger - Pontiac Firebird 3rd Gen
    Nightbeat - Porsche 959, headmaster
    Getaway - modified Mazda RX-7, powermaster
    Runamuck - Pontiac Firebird 3rd Gen
    Runabout - Lotus Esprit
    Freeway - Corvette
    Chase - Ferrari Testarossa
    the Omnibots - Mazda RX-7, Toyota Celica XX, Ferrari 512
    the G2 Laser Rods - Ford Hot Rods

    early IDW based:

    Sideswipe - Lamborghini Diablo
    Sunstreaker - Lamborghini Diablo, headmaster
    Hot Rod - Dodge Viper
    Hot Rod - Pagani Zonda (later)
    Runabout - Chevy Camaro 4th gen
    Runamuck - Chevy Camaro 4th gen
    Nightbeat - Porsche 911
    Cliffjumper - Mini Cooper (Toyworld came close to releasing one)
    Prowl - Nissan 350Z
    Streetwise - Nissan 350Z
    Drift - Nissan Silvia S15 (GCreation may be doing this one)

    And out in left field, Gobots based:

    Crasher - Porsche 956
    Puzzler - Corvette, Toyota Celica XX, Porsche 930T, Countach, Mercedes 300SL, Nissan 300ZX


    Nice car ideas.

    I brought up Skullgrin and the other monster pretenders in DNA Bludgeon's style in his thread.
    There was some interest. Even Longtooth could work. IDW used the pretender shell faces for the Decepticons themselves in the IDW Stormbringer story.


    I was thinking about the G1 Megatron that turns into a tank, they could repaint it as G2 Megatron.
    But for people looking for a MP G2 Megatron, that may not be enough. As the transformation and robot mode would be too different.

    Punch/Counterpunch would be interesting to see done, bonus points as the original Pontiac Fiero.
    There was one company showing a prototype of one, though it didn't seem that good to begin with.

    They did make that smaller Death's Head already. How hard would it be to upscale it?

    Dinobots that actually turn into something that can approximate "Dinosaur" based upon our 30 years of knowledge since G1

    MP Skylynx please.

    I'd also love to get the Monsterbots (who I feel should be Dinobot huge).

    I crave:

    -Powerglide
    -Astrotrain (none of the existing options fit the bill, to me)
    -Darkwing and Dreadwind
    -Blurr

    I would be so 100% down for a design like that. And honestly, if MP-36 is impossible to sell in North America, I think this would make a pretty solid alternative (kinda even superior, in my opinion).

    Hell yes to this! Especially since it's illegal to own the Takara MP Megatron in my country

    And if this never gets made then I'd like an MP of IDW comics MTMTE Megatron with arm cannon. I know that the black stealth jet version is apparently being made by a company, but I'd much rather the MTMTE version.

    Ooooo forgot about Straxus. I'm certain DX9 Tyrant would be a good base but I just don't have the time nowadays.

    If Fanstoys can make Hoodlum turn out like @Psychoshi 's digis I'd be pretty happy. The Takara Hotrod is such a let down for me personally.

    Wouldn't mind that Not-Rodimus to go with Soverign either.. <3

    Hopefully @dalianjj saw these beauties when they were posted in the hoodlum thread.

    My dream MPs would be:
    1) Armada Starscream with star saber and crown (a reformatted version of Screamer)- so bigger and beefier as tall as MP 10
    2) an OS Hotrod/Rodimus/Hoodlum
    3) Nightbeat with 2 headmaster heads; 1 comic accurate and 1 toy accurate
    4) Windblade
    5) Elita One
    6) Slipstream
    7) Gobots Crasher the same height as the autobot cars but with her original toy transformation and cartoon face.
    8) Alpha Trion
    9) Gobots Leader-1
    10) The entire cast of Transformers Prime in MP form, especially Starscream-he is so fierce he deserves to be Barbie Doll size.

    The rest are repaints I would love to see:
    Orange Optimus Prime Fire Guts Convery version of MP 10
    G2 Ramjet
    Shattered Glass Soundwave
    Shattered Glass Hoodlum
    Shattered Glass Starscream
    Golden Lagoon Megatron in gold chrome
    Paradron Medic

    Not meant to be an exhaustive list, but some of my top MP wants would be:

    - A true G1, Sunbow inspired MP SkyLynx.
    - MP Quintessons straight out of the 1986 movie, as well as season 3 of the cartoon.

    Here's another one:
    MP Movie Barricade done up in a G1 style. Alt mode would be the ford Saleen Mustang with police deco, and made to match the aesthetics of the MP carbots in bot mode using cues and design elements from his aligned continuity/movie/prime designs.

    Edit: something like this:

    I'd rather see a Prowl redeco as per Guido Guidi's art, but yeah. MP Barricade would be rad.

    Holy Crap that Hot Rod looks great. I have the official, but I will be picking up FansToys for sure. It looks waaaaay better. Takara could have done a lot better with their version.
