    Thank you :) 

    Thank you. It's also possible I overreacted so I'm sorry too. And yeah the idea of a box set as an alternative is the best of both worlds.

    Consider that we do have Movieverse toys with G1 colours redeco, how about Movieverse style redeco of Generations figures? Like Siege Ironhide in Movie Ironhide black colours, or Siege Sideswipe in Movieverse colours....

    Something like this:

    I'd love to see this. We got eHobby Ratchet and Ironhide repaints based on the movie (and Diaclone in the latter's case). I'd love to see characters in their other color schemes. Optimus Prime in Optimus Primal colors, IDW Drift and AoE, Sideswipe and Armada Wheeljack, etc. So many possibilities.

    I will always clamor for a BW stasis pod + protoform toy that you can program for either Maximal or Predacon, take out into nature or the zoo, and scan for an appropriate beast mode. Then you transmit the data to a factory and after bit, bam! A custom BW Transformer of the animal you scanned.

    That would be pretty cool as a phone app, maybe use something similar to face recognition technology for the alt-mode scanning. Only downside I can think of is it relying on a database of alt modes and having to re-use character models, making the customizeable character feature get real samey real fast. Maybe have an online battle feature and multiple characters to make so it doesn't get too boring.

    What if ee had something akin to a refined Trans-scanning series or Construct-bots, highly articulate frames with a bunch of points to split apart and a lego-like shell to make the alt modes. Sell new packs and themes, heads both new and familiar, maybe expandable frames with longer limbs and a collapsible/expandable torso so you can make almost any size class. Have pre-painted shells or offer blank colors to cater to the customizers, maybe even use this to foster more?

    I'm sure it's been brought up before, and this is more towards third parties, but I so want to see a Skyfire done up in the Skull Leader Veritech's Deco. Giving it a new head would rock as well, but that'd likely be asking for a bit too much...
    I know I would certainly love to see Maketoy's Buster Skywing sporting the deco.

    You can get that if you get Iron Factory Cygnus and the reprolabel set for it.

    If Siege Jetfire gets a heavy retool for Cybertron Starscream, almost like an update to the Supreme class Starscream, I'd buy that.

    Kind of a dumb idea, but it would be cool if they made...

    More expensive versions of current toys that had hollow hiding panels, posable hands and premium paint jobs. For example, imagine a Siege Soundwave that had click-y buttons on his waist (just for detail), no battle damage, forearm panels built in, red paint on the shoulder missles, and an official tape deck mode out of the box. And maybe a pop in pop out red eye peice. All of this in a retro G1 inspired box that would include Laserbeak as a pack in. I'd pay $45 ~ $50 for that.

    Honestly. if we had Masterpiece quality with new and different designs (not unlike MakeToys Cross Dimensions line), I'd probably go into debt

    Deluxe Leozack and Jallguar 2 pack. Form into a CW compatible Liokaiser torso. Include a set of Computron's hands/feet in white. Sell em for $45. Idk if that kind of engineering is even possible for CHUG but I can dream, right?

    Going off of that, it'd be interesting to see a Scramble City compatible Long Haul/Hook combo. Maybe even a Raiden, go full into the combiners. There were SOOOO many good opportunities to bring in old and unloved combiners like Raiden or even the Energon guys and polish them up, but nooooo, gotta rehash the 84 guys when it makes NO sense. Who ever asked for a combiner Sky Lynx? Ugh.



    But hey, we're getting a Snaptrap soon, so that's neat

    that was partially where I got the inspiration for this, well that and F-for-feasant-design's Minibot Mayhem series of files. He has some great repaint ideas.
