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

    Con Hightower should have been called hook so that Hightower can stay as an autobot name for landfill

    How about a series of mix and match Junkions. Numerous remolds and recolors for parts that are interchangeable amongst figures sharing the same base design and transformation. Feature them in the micromaster pair/legends class for one year.

    A character called knock off who was the universes worst spy as his disguises were cheap, nasty and fell apart in seconds.

    Megatron keeps hiring him because he's cheap, everyone else reminds he's rubbish and won't get the job done.

    Basically Lionel hutz in robot form.

    Combining a bunch of evil human organizations to make a new faction for the fiction or a toyline, basically a group of humans who fear that the autobot decepticon war will destroy earth and they decide to create weapons to fight them. They could have humans that become headmasters like the sunstreaker clones in idw, drones like the ones from Ksi nemesis prime like how he was created by humans in prime, autobot X or nightbird could be a part of that, hell why not throw in Mask like vehicles that homage the action master vehicles. I think it could be cool,

    Hasbro should have packaged Titan Master sized Refraktors with each Deluxe Refraktor. And the tiny Refraktors should have been able to fold up into a camera third. That way getting three deluxes would also give you a tiny camera that would scale with all the other figures from the line.

    That is hilarious, I love it!

    However, I would imagine Knock Off working for Starscream in yet another attempt to usurp Megatron as SS is more likely to employ undesirables in his schemes.

    Megs sent the useless knock off to spy as Starscream's spy. Give his opponent the weak deal

    This might have been mentioned elsewhere on here, but I was thinking: what if we had Generations-style figures of the combiner teams, except they were individual figures that couldn't combine? Like for example a Stunticon group that was just a bunch of simple car-to-robot or truck-to-robot figures, without combining into Menasor?

    There have been several instances of this in the CHUG line over the years...

    Hotspot
    Blades
    Onslaught
    Dragstrip
    Movie Breakdown
    Movie Dead End in Wildrider's colour scheme.
    Hun-gurrr
    Scattershot
    Razorclaw
    Botcon Streetwise(star)
    Botcon Breakdown
    Botcon Leozack
    Movie Brawl
    Movie Long Haul
    Movie Mixmaster

    After the Prime Trilogy, we can retroactively count the following...

    Grimlock
    Optimus Prime
    Cyclonus
    Prowl
    Mirage
    Ironhide
    Sunstreaker
    Trailbreaker

    I guess I mean more Siege-style renditions but I forgot about the ones you mentioned.

    Sorry about that.

    Like new molds for certain characters from combiner teams.

    Found this crossover style TF comic on Reddit:

    [​IMG]

    But after reading this short comic, I think of a alternate toyline of toys of specific TF characters but in alternate styling will be something kinda interesting.

    In this weird toyline, you can have such things like:
    • TF: Prime Starscream, but in classic G1 toon styling/design
    • Animated Sentinel Prime, but in Bayverse styling/design
    • Bayverse Sideswipe, but in TF: Prime styling/design
    • BB movie Shatter and Dropkick, but in Animated styling/design
    It's a bit of a ridiculous idea, but it'll be an interesting alternative for something like if someone wants a toy of BB movie Shatter and Dropkick but didn't like the more Movieverse style design aesthetic.

    A Soundwave figure that turns into a self-playing piano. If he was in a show, it would play the “TSCHE-CHU-CHU-CHU-TSCHE” on the piano keys as he transforms. Cassette bots turn into metal-etched music cylinders music boxes use. 7F39BE1F-00B8-4F9B-8653-BE5C1F94AEB6.jpeg

    You don't need to apologise dude. I was just listing ones we'd got in the last decade and some of those could use new toys.

    I hadn't realised so many had been done until I started listing them.

    Combiner Wars but even more. All combiners in the same scale. All torsos and limbs interchangeable. Scramble City for the non-SC guys (Liokaizer, Road Ceaser, Devastator, et. al). Combiners from different generations (like FOC and Energon). Hammer that gimmick home. I love combiners

    "Hi, I'm Troy McCluretron! You might remember me from Your Transformation Cog And You, That Darn Ravage, Prime's Coming Over For Dinner, and many more..."

    Come to think of it, I'd dig a 6-changer whose character was an actor in cybertronian theater. Have that faction change gimmick from siege jetfire so he can play both kinds of roles.

    You could even have him mimic certain bots.
    Turns into a beast, acts like Grimlock. Turns into a jet, acts like starscream. The possibilities are endless!

    Looking back at some of the original toys of off-screen characters from the previous movie toylines (Like RTS Fallback or DOTM Skyhammer) for a bit, and a random thought immediately came in mind

    Consider that those toys are always the most interesting part of those previous movie toylines, I wonder what if Studio Series also came out with toys of original designs on their own with alt modes that show up in the movies (Some cool examples would be the Boeing C-17 transport plane that transports Optimus to Shanghai in ROTF or the Local Motors Rally Fighter that Cemetary Wind uses in AOE)

    [​IMG]

    I know what I suggest goes against everything that the Studio Series toyline was supposed to do, and I also think it's highly unlikely for Studio Series to something like that.
