Hear me out.
To be perfectly honest, I'm really winding down as a collector, and I'll be quite content by the end of the year-ish. I suppose if I could ask for one, it would probably be a toy colors dark purple Cyclonus.
That said, I think it's a major opportunity if the remaining Diaclone Colored 84 bots continued to come out using the Earthrise molds:
Blue cab Ultra Magnus
I expect that we can get a GS Lockdown, I am surprised that Hasbro hasn't made it yet
I’ve said before I’d want them to make a GS Lockdown from the Tracks mold, I know Loudpedal is more likely but it’d be neat. For some reason the flying car mode seems like something Lockdown would have.
Beast Wars Optimus Prime and G1 Megatron from the Takara Optimus and repainted Krok TR figure
Alligaticon from City of Steel from Krok Mold
G1 Bulkhead from Trailbreaker
I hope not, there aren't any existing figures that would really do him justice without major remolding (which wouldn't fit into GS). He really deserves his own mold but if not, the only car bot that's tall and lanky enough is SS86 Hot Rod, and I'd want pretty much every major part on him to be remolded if they used Hot Rod as a base because Lockdown deserves to be more than just a recolor of another iconic character. Before Kingdom Tracks came out I'd been hoping he might work as a base for a remold, but he's way too short in robot mode.
Scorch, Flash, and Hurricane can all be made from WFC molds and would be way more accurate that Selects Rotorstorm. Give us more Turbomasters, Hasbro!
Cybertron Wheeljack and Jazz would be a good two pack
Torca from Rhinox
Buzz Saw from Waspinator
Laserbeak from Terrrorsaur
Leo Prime from Tigatron
BM Skydive from Wingfinger
!!! That's perfect! I've been saying for a while over in the UK thread that they should do a Weaponizer based on that cannon and this would be ideal. Heck, assuming you've not edited that first screenshot it rather looks like SLAMMER may have been partly based on that Ballista Cannon thing. Then again I gather Hasbro had them insert some Metroplexy things into Autobot city mid production, that's why during the Transformation sequence some of the parts of the city change to a white colour.
Alternatively, it's pretooling and Hasbro have an Autobot City Ballista Cannon thingy Selects planned, hopefully with a retooled Turret/Gun.
Nice catch there!
Insta-buy if this happens, and they retool the arms/barrel into the ballista!
I will never understand why people suggest this one, the two look nothing alike unless you want a gen selects version of the Leobreaker remold from Universe.
This can not be emphasized enough. After getting this Cybertronian Bumblebee, those two are tops on my wants list now.
They managed to make Terrorsaur out of Airrazor. If they put that level of retool to Tigatron, they could make Lio Prime out of him.
I feel like these two would be well suited to a two pack anyway purely because of what they are. They’re there for those that want them, on their own in a mainline I feel like if it were to happen it would have happened in Siege.
I just thought of 2 more retools from Waspinator:
That's honestly a really bad comparison considering Terrorsaur only really needed a reshell whereas Lioconvoy would need an entirely new torso at a minimum. His lion head goes on his shoulder, not his chest. For Airazor and Terrorsaur, their original figures already had some basic similarities in how the parts were laid out, the only thing that Tigatron and Lioconvoy share is that their back beast legs become their bot legs.
