    Baron Von Joy was my favorite of the ones I had. Bug Bite was cool, too, but his Transformerized self is lame as a white Bumblebee.

    Hence why I said "something to consider" and not "something you must do".....

    Yep. I’m keeping the vague lore that TT gave us and running with it. They’re a group of Transformers from another dimension.

    That's fair. I should've read your words more carefully. It's why I edited mine to sound less aggressive.

    Scratch’s alt-mode looks more like Trailbreaker, I could see them using his mold for him
    …and in both of those things you mentioned, Path Finder was based on a Cosmos figure with the same colors (not trying to disagree with what you said, just pointing something out)
    Yeah, he’s in my fanfic and I included some mentions from his crewmates to their friends about him being from another universe (something about him “being shot into space by Cog…”)

    For a moment there I forgot about road rager. We're further along than I thought.

    I'm curious if they're going to lore up what these characters and their factions (or sub-factions I guess) are in the current TF zeitgeist.

    Yep. Bad Boy is all that’s left to make the ehobby team. Though I’d love to have repaints of Beachcomber and Seaspray get finish the Minibots from that prototype catalog image.

    They could do Powerglide, make him into Bad Boy, and then give us a multipack with Buggyman and Rest-Q (and there’s 2 mold choices for the latter)

    then that leaves Seaspray/Man-O-War, who could be released in a 2-pack with an Earth-mode Nacelle

    I don’t know shit about original gobits (nor do I care to) but I tfwikied the Rest-Q and he’s the prototype Hubcap! Too bad it’s too similar to Bugbite to happen… but man, I forgot about him and the proto-Tailgate! They need him too!

    Honestly? I'd love a modern toy take on bugsie, since I'd had a copy of the original toy for quite some reason after I found it on the ground in the grass as a small child until my siblings accidentally broke it in half a few years ago and then a visiting family member took it with them when they left. Still need to get a new copy of the original

    I still have my Vamp from then (the only surviving fig ,besides Rocklords ,from Gobots figs I had), that would be a cool one to see redone imo. In the Machine Robo lore isn\'t Vamp one of more like him and they come from deep space or something?? I could look it up but I like answers I get here lol

    Someone suggested earlier in this thread (I believe it was this one) that he’d make a good Slicks:

    Yes, Vamp’s Machine Robo/Robo Machine counterpart is called Casmodon, a type of Devil Invader, of which there are many. The other four original Monster GoBots (Pincher, Scorp, Bladez, and Creepy) were also mass-produced types of Invaders.

    Funny thing too is that according to the Toys That Built America Episode Transforming Toy Invasion, Tonka supposedly passed on calling their GoBots line Transformers.

    Slicks has a different vehicle mode, all of the e-hobby ones kept the vehicle modes the same.

    Try pennies. I didn't have the foresight or understanding at the time to realize that it didn't need to necessarily replace the dollar to be viable. I though the concept was stupid... as it turns out, nope, I was stupid.

    Welp, I had my eye on getting the Road Ranger pack a little while ago, but this put me over the edge. I really like how he looked regardless, but realizing he goes with the Gobots was a neat revelation.
    Now, about Bug Bite..... do I pay voyager prices for him now or wait for a potential repaint of SS86 Bee?

    true, true, he could be made from Mirage, and the color schemes between the e-Hobby figures and original designs weren't the same anywayss
