    A proper Savage/Noble would be nice.

    Botanica is my dream toy. I can't imagine it ever happening, though. :( 

    I'll second the votes for better Obsidian, Strika, and Silverbolt, too.

    What's wrong with the original?

    Short of a lump of color-changing Play-Doh, I don't think it could get closer.

    B-but that means he's the seed of the future!

    While I warmed to the show eventually, there are very few designs I'd like to see made flesh/plastic. And god PLEASE don't waste a chug slot on a screen accurate nightscream! The horror! The HORROR!

    Vehicons could be cool.

    I'd buy a Nightscream PURELY because he's a Beast Machines toy. I'd have to keep up my "I have all the toys to do with BM" thing. However unless it was STUNNING, I'd never even open it.
    Personally, I'd MUCH rather prefer updated versions of Tankor, Obsidian or Silverbolt. And I would be prepared to assassinate people for an updated BM Megatron toy.

    We're getting a whole crap-ton of obscure characters in this series, even one guy that never even HAD a toy before now. However, Botanica would be extremely weird to see happen, since that thing would shelfwarm until the cows come home. Female Transformer: shelfwarmer. Wasn't in the movie: slightly more of a shelfwarmer. Turns into a PLANT: Major shelfwarmer the likes of Injector.

    I lol'd.
    Well I wouldn't mind a Botanica toy, but I'd really like a smaller Rattrap and Nightscream and a larger Silverbolt.

    I'd love me a new Deluxe Jetstorm, Obsidian, Strika and a Voyager Tankor, As for the Maximals I'd love a new Deluxe Cheetor that tall, lanky and not crappy like the supreme class version and a scout class Rattrap, I never cared for Botanica as a toy instead how about a decent Savage/Noble.

    Botanica, and she can be the first 'green' toy, made of recycled plastic.

    Like I said I would love for Generations to expand past G1/G2 stuff, and starting with Beast Machines would fit the bill. A new Primal or Rattrap would be greatly appreciated.

    Judging by the fact that Dinobot and Cheetor were two of the last deluxes left on HTS leads me to believe they were poor sellers. On the contrary, the current G1 updates in Generations/RTS seem to be doing very well.

    I don't know how Hasbro thinks when designing a toy.The few guesses that i came up with would look like this.What character would be simple enough to make yet be complex to give it play value?Does it need to be a Big toy like a leader or small like a deluxe?If its a deluxe, can we make the figure look bigger to make it look like a voyager(example Lockdown). and Finally: Can we profit from this mold by making repaints of the same figure.


    All in all, if there was a BM figure made it would be silverbolt.

    I like Beast Machines a lot, but personally I'm not all that fond of the character designs.

    If they decide to do more beast molds, which I would love to see, I think it would be more probable that they be pre-transmetal beast wars (new Rattrap please).

    i would prefer remakes of the vehicons and megatron. a proper voyager tankor, deluxe obsidian and voyager strika. jetstorm needs a new look as well.

    but it will never happen.

    Some of them might need to be another size - but a Deluxe Nightscream & Obsidian seem like an obvious pair to do. I'd want them sympathetically designed though not totally reworked like some have been.

    Something like Tankor or Silverbolt and maybe Jetstorm probably need to be bigger. as has been complained about for years there's not a lot wrong with Nightslash/Universe v1.0 Cheetor so all they need to do is repaint him in the proper show colour in a future repaint subline release. Perhaps Blackarachnia could be a closer to show colour too.

    I'd not really see the bother remaking Jetstorm though even if neither were quite right. if they could miniaturise the Supreme RID Primal that would be kick butt though.
