    A Titan class transformer that turns into a massive bucket wheel excavator. Or maybe a Leader class Siege Scoop. Why Scoop? Why not.

    Or a combiner where the components turn into a skateboard, a segway, a tandam bicycle, a moped, and a golf cart. His name will be Mundanicus.

    There was an article on this site some years back posted about a designer (freelance?) who was working or had worked for Hasbro. In it he shared the proof-of-concept (a sort of prototype cobbled together out of existing figures/parts) that transformed from 'classic' bumblebee to a modern camaro to 'bayformer' bumblebee.

    I've tried several google searches to find the article I'm referring to and I've come up with nothing--anybody else remember what I'm referring to?

    I remember thinking, "Neat. I'd never need or buy that...but it is interesting!"

    i know who you're talking about, and i think they're still fairly active on the forums. i've definitely seen them posting on here recently and their signature is of the art that was done for their optimus, but i don't remember the name or what to google to find it.

    A titan-class Soundwave that actually functions as a working media player (Albeit simplified to work with the transformation).

    G1 Transformers with their movie alt modes (G1 Optimus turning into a Peterbilt, starscream turning into a F-22 Raptor, etc.)
    We already Movie Transformers turning into their G1 alt modes, so why not the inverse?

    I've always wanted something like that too. How about Legends class citybots?

    I second this.
    Legends Classs Citybots would not be affordable ways to Acquire Metroplex and trypticon, but would also scale nicely with kreons.

    Totally, I think there was the old Transformers Junior line back during that weird period between G1 and Beast Wars IIRC and it had Fort Max in a smaller scale. Otherwise I'm sure there are undersized KOs out there like the one Thew has.

    A combiner made up of robots that turn into different colored rubber ducks. The center bot would be yellow of course and the combiner head would be none other then BW Megs head.

    Neo-G1. As in the basic engineering and flaws. G1 Alpha Bravo and jet Blastoff are easy redecoes of the original Vortex and Slingshot, but new mold toys for Rook and Offroad are more challenging. Larger toys for Drift, Windblade and other new characters. G1 Beast Wars. The centerpiece can be the Unicron prototype finally getting a release.

    Going back to the root of the toyline by making more toys that turn into very realistc, convincing objects. Not GEEWUN-y or hyper-realistic, just 'bots that turn into mundane things and disguise themselves.
