    I'm really starting to like iGear's approach here. Their website is great, and I'm digging the whole fan interaction thing they got going on with asking for suggestions etc.

    Although, I have no suggestions to cough up myself...

    So what's the deal with TF-005 and TF-006?!?! Skipping numbers drives my OCD crazy.

    I'm more interested in their MP Prime trailer... And would like to see these guys tackle an MP-02 Magnus trailer too!

    I wonder how plausible it would be for them to add the extending tower (pre extended and doesn't need to extend) with an elevator that moves with manual lever to move Decepticons from the bottom to the top of the tower with exits on both ends? That's probably a bit more than they're looking for though...

    I wrote and asked for a prison cell to hold Autobots or some show-only 'Con weapons like the Transfixatron scaled for Classics use.

    Had a few ideas that I sent in, and posted on their forum as well, though I'd paste them in hear too, see if anyone else thinks they'd be fun.

    I'm especially keen on the second idea:

    For symmetry issues, i think the Megatron throne should be the other way around, that way we could Display it among the Autobot set

    Plus, if its cost possible, some speakers would be nice to connect ML Soundwave ;)

    Glad you approve!

    I've always loved playsets, as a kid I loved Metroplex and Tryppy because they were "bases" though they paled in play-value (from a playset stand point) compared to my MOTU castles.

    These two sets really have me salivating, and something like my suggestion would just be so much icing on the cake :)

    Well, it's been over 4 months since an update to this item on the iGear site, but they put up one new pic. Not really much new to see since it's still all rendered stuff, and the pic has a bunch of added visuals that are clearly not going to be part of the set.

    I sent them a couple of suggestions.

    1. The Lightning Bug From Cosmic Rust. (Just cause it be cool to have one of the dozens of Megatron's goofy gizmos to destroy the Autobots)

    2. An Elevator/Tower add-on. One half side of it could be the bottom of the Elevator that opens up for the Con's to enter or exit, and the other half side could look like the top of the Tower complete with a working Ramp.

    A lot of the other suggestions posted here are excellent as well. I really like the idea of a place to plug the tapes into.
