    Would Decepticon vehicles sell if their headlights were eyes:

    I don't think so... It kinda defeats the whole "Robots in Disguise" thing

    Maybe, but I really, really don't want to see it happen. As GuardianPrime19 says, it kinda defeats the whole RID thing, and beyond that, it's just too goofy for me.

    That already happened in the 1980s, when Hasbro/Takara introduced the Pretenders and Transformers suddenly looked like giants, armoured boar and pirate walruses. :)

    Don't knock the pirate walrus. Pirate walrus is love, pirate walrus is life.

    Also, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors had far, far better intro music than Transformers ever did.

    Yeah, no. Keep the googly eyes off my Transformers and in the realm of 'Cars' or whatever sentient vehicle thing Disney/Pixar do next.

    That was one of my favorite shows from my youth. Had a bunch of the vehicles, and their play pattern of building and modifying was amazingly fun. I'd love to see a modern update.

    This thread is a bit weird. Is it really relevant to official toys? Perhaps it would be better served in the "General Discussion" area?

    Anyway, this has already happened:

    That thing should be defeated more often, whenever it happens it makes for more interesting toys and figures with more creative designs.
    The whole Robots in disguise thing is extremely limiting to the toys and the fiction and it doesn't make much sense in fiction for a race of intelligent transforming robots locked in a galaxy spanning war to engage in cloak and dagger tactics.

    It does when you don't want the native population to know about you.

    If that native population is too stupid to think anything of the increasing areas of Earth that suddenly and inexplicably look like warzones, of course.

    Anyway, eyes painted on TF toys headlights would be doofy as hell, no thx.

    For the record, some of my best friends are pirate walruses.

    +1. Almost exactly my immediate thought, in fact.

    I'd actually rather give a 3rd party ideas as they probably work as hard as they can instead of a corporate exec a contribution to their 3rd home.

    That went out the window in 1984, when every vehicle had their factions symbol plastered on it. Then in 1985 when they introduced Jetfire, Shockwave, the Dinobots, and the Insecticons.
