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

    A legend scale Erector done by the designer who did the recent SeaSpray, that includes a battle trailer that may also have the weaponizer gimmick.

    I think it's pretty interesting. I think it would be cooler in g2 colors.

    a combiner that's 5 classic muscle cars. when you transform the torso, the paint aligns in such a way that it looks like he's wearing a white tank top. Combiner head would have a huge beard and big sunglasses.

    I'd prefer the G1 colors myself, but I still think that would look cooler, too.

    Also, I'd imagine Hook's alt-mode would look like a Cybertronian version of the crane truck pictured below so Devastator's head could be hidden within his legs/alt-mode cab, similar to AoE Snarl's stegosaurus head.

    Also, who needs to link to YouTube videos and specify when you have to watch?

    I... huh... in a sense, I guess so, huh? Not in the story sense of what that abomination was, but in that grotesque style, - less traditional combiner; more fusion, and melding of material - I guess so! I think something a bit closer to what I had in mind would be the Titanomancy Fusions by TGPing. Though, I figure something like that is probably nearly impossible to engineer to make it look believable, and mesh as well as I'm thinking... But hey, that's part of what this thread is for!

    I think rotf scrapper's alt mode would be better in this case. I don't know why.

    What exactly do you mean by this? Devastator obviously wouldn't look 100% like the example image (which is Decastator from James Farr's Trains-Form3rs).

    I mean I'd prefer the g1 scrapper to look like the rotf one in alt mode in this case.

    Has anyone suggested Transformers pets yet? Like Optimus Prime is a dog, Megatron a cat, Starscream a raven, and Huffer a seaslug. And bumblebee is, wait for it... a duck. Perfect. ...Though it occurred to me this is just Beast Wars but cuter.

    So this isn't a dumb idea, more like just dumb execution. I understand that Hasbro will have trouble selling toys of the DJD due to one turning into a torture chair and the other into a sniper rifle but I've figured out a solution! Much in the same vein that Shockwave and Sixshot have a "submarine" mode, instead of Kaon turning into a torture chair, he could be a dentist chair! And Vos isn't a sniper rifle, he's just a really weird stick! Problem solved.

    Kaon could turn into a car battery with some cable accessories (god I love Hobbes and Shaw), and then Vos just turns into a lamp post.

    What about a G1 toon style Devastator, with G1-accurate Constructicon members, alt-mode and colors....... but their combine to form a Movie Devastator in G1 aesthetic, instead of the humanoid G1 Devastator?

    Some transformers with animal based robot modes with a vehicle alt mode would be pretty cool, stuff like the jaguar alternaters ravage or like a trex robot that transforms into a jet, or a robot eagle that turns into a tank.

    Unless he's human sized I'm not sure Vos would be an issue when we have Battlemasters who literally turn into guns. But I forget how big Vos was in the comic.

    Tesaurus could turn into a giant blender, and Helex could turn into a smelter....

    Vos was a pretty large rifle for Megatron as a gun, and roughly deluxe sized. Make him and Kaon weaponizers and BS some voyager alt modes.for Helex and Tesarus. That isn't a smelting chamber, its a... Titan master cockpit. Yeah. Ignore that they're laying down and tbat there are other arms. They're just tired. Totally.

    Studio Series toys based on toys of characters of past toylines. So for example:

    SS 2007 Megatron in Voyager colors, complete with ice and all
    SS ROTF Ratchet (that backless Humvee)
    SS Sidearm Sideswipe
    SS Voyager DOTM Optimus (the one with solar panels on the hood)
    SS Grimlock in orange

    Toyception much?
