    I'd certainly love some Vehicons. Also, this guy :) )):

    Also, an Optimal Optimus with a certain updated noggin' would be very cool, too. :ev:

    Oh, how I'd love to have some Classics BM toys, especially Obsidian. :ev: 

    I lol'd so hard because of the [cliche] creativity that can come from this. I loved ROTF Jolt because he was the electric car (Chevy Volt), and he had electrical weapons 'n such.

    As for Botanica? A car going green, like a solar-electric SMART car or something - she's able to convert solar energy into Energon, but because of some event blah blah blah, she uses it as a built-in life support system. And hence her name, she's sort of a botanist, coming up with methods of using organic fuels to convert to Energon.

    BM in Generations? Why not. I would like to see a proper Nightscream, Botanica and several Vehicons too.

    How about they take a fam-fave from the series(Silverbolt, and because his toy was worse than bullshit) and combine elements from a previous series. They done that to Cheetor(lankiness)

    I don't think it'll ever happen. If it does it'll just be one or two characters like Beast Wars got, like Jetstorm, Tankor, or Cheetor or something.

    Big beast fan so I support this thread.

    Beast Machines did one of two things, they either missed the mark on the characters completely (alla Cheetor) or they mess up on size (Nightscream). I will say they did get it right enough on some characters...I think Black Arachnia was done very well especially with the Unicron.com piece that allows her to stand tippy toe like in the show.

    What I would like to see in a new Beast Machine line...

    Maximals
    Primal-They got him right the second time around so maybe go from mega to ultra.
    Cheetor- He needs a complete redo and with his awesome flight swords.
    Black Arachnia- Leave well enough alone.
    Rattrap- The Figure needs to be scaled down to a basic class figure.
    Nighscream-Scaled to a basic or deluxe and he needs his feet wings.
    BOTANICA NEEDS A FIGURE.

    Vehicons
    Megatron- needs a leader class figure of both his dragon cape form and Optimal Form.
    Jetscream- Get him right
    Tankor- upscale his basic mould which was screen accurate
    Thrust- upscale the perfect motorcycle drone fig.
    Obsidian- Upscale and recolour. Im sure an upscale would add details
    Stryka - I think they got her right

    Savage Noble IMO was executed well for the time...Just needs more size, imagine a Leader Class of that guy :O

    Say what you will about the show but it was hard going from the awesomeness of collecting BW toys to the slow starting BM toys (They started off really bad and improved a great deal by the finale)

    I would love to see a figure made for Botanica. She never got a toy at all, and really needs one!

    Poor, poor Sliverbolt. The character never did anything to deserve a toy that badly. You see, numerous people had warned me just how unbelievably bad his figure was. I didn't really believe a toy could be just that horrible. I don't think I've ever been so woefully mistaken before. Silverbolt could use a good figure.

    Nightscream, however, does not deserve another anything, of any type, whatsoever.

    So, for me, I'd go for just a Botanica, and maybe a Silverbolt. I'd prefer to see more Beast Wars Classics though.

    I think updating and/or reimagining Obsidian, Strika, Jetstorm and Tankor as Decepticons would be pretty cool and help Hasbro avoid potential poorer sales.

    If we ever do get a Primal in Generations, I hope its his Beast Machines version, as I always thought that was the best Primal design. Do him as a Deluxe and he'll be just fine.

    Botanica definitely needs a toy, she never got one. But doing a show accurate version would be an invitation for poor sales. I mean, c'mon, she transforms from a robot into a mass of vines that looks like her robot mode. I always thought reimagining her to transform into a Venus Flytrap would be very cool and make a fun, very different toy that might just be interesting enough to sell.

    I put him on equal status as the other two Vehicons, since I really like all three a lot :) 

    While that may not satisfy people posting in this thread, I think I'd love this. I also think it would be the only thing to convince me to buy a toy made of this character *dodges bullets*

    I'd be down for a new Jetstorm toy, honestly.

    I second this request.

    My son wanted to get all Tv Show Cheetors, and the best BM Cheetor so far for me and him was the Titanium one.

    All the Maximals could de redone, specially Nightscream and OPtimus.

    From the vechicons...

    OBSIDIAN with an accurate vehicle mode... I would give all my money for that.

    How about a remolded 2010 Terradive with a new head as Jetstorm? Or a retool of RotF Chromia as a Motorcycle Drone?

    Well put.

    Silverbolt used to one of my faves in BW. In fact, he lived on well enough in BM. (Hel*, he looked gorgeous in that series & I mean animation)

    But I couldn't Zzz when I saw the toy finally. :banghead: 

    And I'll like to see some Dinobots love in TFG/United someday. They are screaming to be made into Big Bad Machines! :ev:

    I'd actually love for all these characters to just get updated looks. A post-BM look for these characters. Not necessarily Transtech, just updated looks for the characters that were very important to the Transformers franchise for a good amount of time.

    Some redone vehicon generals would be cool, Obsidian even has a cancelled deluxe design they could use.
