I'll name two to start.
and I almost forgot - isn't their a Marvel Universe Deaths Head coming out??
Wait, Impactor got a toy?
Does he really count? I mean, they used the name, but in no way is he the same as the G2 character since the toy was nothing more than a BM Jetstorm repaint.
He's getting one, a retool of FoC Onslaught along with retools of the other Combaticons into wreckers (Whirl, Roadbuster, and the jumpstarters).
I can't remember all the characters Furman created, but I bet Straxus ain't it.
Club stories retroactively made it another body for G2 Jhiaxus. Counts for a hat trick.
He was the writer in the comic that had Mindset, who got a toy. There is some debate if he's the SAME Mindset, but I think it counts, even if he's Mindset from another universe. They seemed to have the Furman character in mind when they made it.
Furman also made a G1 character named Steamhammer. There are toys named Steamhammer, but I don't they were really based on the Furman concept.
Huh. Guess he does count after all.
I don't think so. While there was a Mindset toy, it was both the wrong color (baby blue/black as opposed to the white/green in the comic) and an Autobot. That last one is especially important since the comic Mindset was in some way related to Onslaught.
Also, the original Hailstorm figure was supposed to have been based on Mindset all along. Somehow. Although then THAT figure got retconned into IDW G1 continuity with Autocracy when he showed up next to RTS Lugnut, Universe 2.0 Heavy Load, and G2 Roadblock.
The designers commented they had the Furman Mindset in mind when they came up with him though. Yes, they made him a differnet color. Transformers can come in differnt colors. It was G2 wasn't it?
Also, the whole "related to Onslaught" thing didn't make sense, since in the Marvel comics Onalight was made on Earth with the creation matrix. If you ignore that, who says Autobot and Decepticons can't be related? Or that Mindset didn't change to an Autobot after he was brought back to life by Optimus Prime after the events of the G2 comic?
Straxus was created by Budiansky.
