    Okay, not sure of this first one being dumb, but whatever....

    Botanica in the R.E.D. series. I don't care which incarnation, but I need her!!!

    Also, re-release of Quackles in an "accessory" pack for Kingdom so BW Megs can have his ducky. No idea of specific figures that could work, tho...

    Lastly, I wanna see Dynobot Skar as a fossilizer if those rumors are true.

    A TF line set in the 1960s, at the height of the Cold War. The Decepticons are trying to instigate WWIII, and the Autobots are trying to stop them. The toys would all have period accurate alt modes (the Seekers turn into F86s, the Autobot cars turn into Mustangs and Thunderbirds, etc).

    i think it would be a novel idea if they did 1 year without an Optimus, a Bumblebee, or a Megatron (Galvatron is okay though)

    Might be a long one, but hear me out:

    So, it's combiner wars meets pcc meets siege. Megatron and Optimus are the only core robots (for year 1), they're deluxe-ish scale, and they come with the combiner parts necessary to not be terrible toys.

    Every other bot and con are appropriately scaled to serve as legs or arms, and they are explicitly declared to be "drones of the Bumblebee (or any other character) model". So bee model, mirage model, starscream model, etc. Just give people the narrative precedent to buy multiples.

    So, then make battle masters (same drone model logic) that are appropriately smaller than the limb bots, and package them with the limb bots, in addition to blast effects. That way the limb bots have more play value if bought independently of the core bots. This also allows them to fit into that deluxe price range so walmart won't get stupid over smalls not selling wait this isn't the rant thread.

    So then with year two introduce the season 2 combiner teams as gift packs, a devastator, an omega supreme, then with year 3 you introduce Rodimus and Galvatron as new core bots, put out some season three bots and cons as drones, then the dinobots as a gift set and predaking as a gift set.

    Would this take the place of WFC?

    I mean would it be the next trilogy? To me it sounds better as a subline.

    I was just thinking about this today and not sure if it was already said but I would really like to see more screen acurate figures from Beast Machines the Vehicons had a great design to them but mainly an accurate interpretation of nightscream and silverbolt love both their designs.

    Kinda starting to feel like an ass adding onto other people's ideas... but I want to share, dang it!
    There are two things I would change with this;
    One being the core robots; while I like the idea of them being few and far between, I feel like it could be more interesting if they weren't just the leaders we always get. I'm not sure who or what would be a "better" though. Guess I'm more pulling from the PCC inspiration with that. Just like the idea of leaning away from CW, and making it so that these aren't established combiners, allowing kids to make their own characters from what are effectively "generics", for lack of a better term.
    Second is the battle masters, of which I would suggest that instead of giving all the combiner bits to the Core Robots, you make it so that the battle masters can become those parts. Kind of taking a note from one of the recent 3rd party Predaking figures, where the hands can transform into a crab. If you make it so these pieces are sold separately as well, then you add yet another degree of customization.

    Consider that every current mainline must've released at least one massive, big Titan class sized toy, what about:

    Studio Series Titan-Class ROTF Stratosphere?

    [​IMG]

    Just imagine the design remains almost identical to the ROTF toy, but with everything re-engineering from the ground up to current Titan-Class standards (like Siege Omega Supreme or Earthrise Scorponok), newly sculpted details to match up with the Studio Series figures, alongside packing in various premium play features, gimmicks such as:

    • Posable hands with Individual articulated fingers
    • Massive Studio Series style backdrop depicting the Shanghai battle at the beginning of the ROTF movie
    • Actually includes a brand new Scout-class sized Space shuttle accessory that can transforms into a gun accessory for Stratosphere in robot mode, with light and sounds electronic gimmick (Invoking how the original ROTF toy was meant to come with a Space Shuttle accessory that would have plugged into the hole between his plane-mode wings that would serve as his robot-mode weapon, which was ultimately removed from the final production piece)
    • A bonus DOTM Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime that can fits into the cargo hold in the aft section of the plane, and can deploy from the ramp by rotating his tail fins; retooled with the ROTF abdomen look.
    [​IMG]
    • A non-transforming, big Deluxe-class sized Demolishor figure containing multiple articulation points for posing with the included Optimus Prime figure (With movie-accurate white color look)
    • A set of newly molded Siege/Cyberverse Deluxe style blast effect parts, that can be used with this Titan-Class Stratosphere and his Space Shuttle Gun weapon at various ports and hardpoints.
    • Realistic, movie accurate deco, paint job and military insignias.
    • An actual deployable cargo hold door in the military transport jet that can stores the included Optimus Prime figure in both truck and robot mode

    Upsized flying robots are always a win. Love my Commander Jetfire. Got an upsized KO Robot Masters Thundercracker that looks amazing on my desk at work. I wouldn’t reject a big ole Astrotrain/ISS/SpaceX dragon set. But the pinnacle of upsized flying robots would be a commander or bigger Cosmos. Simple or complex, I think there would be interest within the sci-fi/non-transformer fan groups for a big display piece flying saucer that turns into a robot.

    Shit at Titan class, I'd imagine he could fit the SS voyager quite comfortably
