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

    I'd totally be up for upgraded GoBots, particularly the core rosters (Leader-1/Turbo/Scooter/Cy-Kill/Crasher/Cop-Tur). Though we did get Crasher/Fracture a while back.

    Bring back pack-in comics. Just small enough to fit in with a deluxe, anywhere from 10 - 20 pages. Make them educational, or silly, or both -- use the characters to tell a short story that isn't so ME GRIMDARK it paints the bedroom door black and promote some literacy. Make the Decepticons into pranksters and/or harmless delinquents, and the autobots into community/emergency service volunteers (like rescue bots, I guess). Some slice of life stuff instead of slicing lives, more for the general audience than just the grade schoolers.

    You know what? How about this?

    Botanica in WFC 3, and she DOES have her plant mode, but she also has another mode that turns her into a garden, or perhaps another Modulator like Ironworks could fill that role, or maybe both?! I just want more plantformers.... And I want a Botanica figure darn it!!

    At the both part? I meant as "Botanica gets plant and garden mode and modulator gets a garden mode"

    ... Or is it my fascination of plantformers in general?

    Ah. Well, here is her main tfwiki page and animated page. She is a maximal who is basically a plant. She is also Rattrap's shipping fuel.

    I know who she is. I never knew about her Animated form though, it's actually not too bad.

    Parts which slot over/peg onto the vehicle modes Combiner Wars toys in order to make them "Cybertronian" by Siege standards. Wing boosters and nosecones on the Aerialbot jets, landing skids and nosecones for the helicopter mold, apparatus to peg Brawl into an H-tank and double barrels that slot over his turret, funky details that slot over the hoods and trunks of the car mold, Tron-esque windshield which slots over Hot Spot, etc...

    These would also transform into weaponry for their respective bots. The new windshields, roofs and nosecones would become shields, Brawl's double barrels would fold together into a shotgun and the apparatus becomes a hammer. Perhaps the landing skids would disengage into blades whilst the rest on the chopper mold's add-ons would peg onto the back as kibble.

    Of course, the alternative would just be to release Cybertronian redoes of all the CW guys which are still compatible with the original line... not saying that I wouldn't like a Bruticus which homages their FOC alt modes whilst retaining the G1 colors and vehicle modes, it's just that my first idea is more absurd.

    Why haven't we gotten CW compatible army builders, anyway? Simply turn Off-road into the G1 Dropkick drones and/or UW Armada Thrust into those Coneheads from the IDW comics and Dead End into Autotroopers. Make enough of them and fewer people will ever feel the compulsion to fill out "teams."

    In fact, original IDW had some pretty good Combiner components that can be made with existing molds so long as you don't care about scale (which is way less relevant with Combiners) such as...

    Thundercracker and Acid Storm from UW Ghost Starscream

    Mindwipe from POTP Swoop and Dreadwing from Starscream (although I don't think we need any more torsos.)

    Dumb idea or not,I'd love to see some Transtech homages at least as exclusives retools of existing figures if not outright new molds. Like in Selects for example. Something along the likes of these examples.

    Transtech Optimus Prime retooled/reshelled from TLK Voyager Optimus Prime
    Transtech Megatron from Siege Megatron
    Transtech Cheetor from rumored SS Blurr
    Transtech Blackarachnia from ER Elita-1/Arcee
    Transtech Starscream from Siege Seeker mold
    Transtech Shockwave from SS Scrapper
    Transtech Silverbolt from rumored SS Scourge

    How about a series based around classic cars. Sort of a what if the Autobots had awoken during the 50's/60's. I mean of course you'd have some muscle cars, I'd love to see some Woodys and such too.

    So, I'm watching some classic spongebob ("imitation krabs") and the robot krabs can mass shift into a toaster. Now I want to see a toaster that turns into a crab as a reference to this.

    Grimlock has the unused Yellow w/ blue stripes colors, and he get a dino mode helmet based on Greymon.

    We'll call him Greymlock.

    Heck we already have some repaints based on them (the various seekers). I'd just love to get some more repaints like that.

    I like it! Honestly, I'm surprised considering that he is also a big Digimon fan, @Grimlockimus hasn't done a Greymon repaint of Grimlock to my knowledge :D

    I think deep,deep on this thread, specific cars for specific characters were suggested and they were all awesome.

    Civilian and military from late 40s thru Vietnam era seems ripe for something new. It gets suggested every now and then, but imagine Combaticons/Bruticus based on their original Guadalcanal forms.

    Honestly Transformers in different eras would be a really interesting toyline in general. Heck, one which took the orginal G1 plot and had them wake up in the modern day would be interesting. And before people call out Bayformers, I'm meaning along the lines of giving them modern altmodes which fit the original versions of those characters. So not Bee as a Muscle Car but as a modern compact car like the Beatle was for it's time, for example. The Seekers as modern fighter jets etc.
    Edit: Also I'll keep saying it but Arcee as the Corvette Charlie's Dad and then Charlie were working on in the Bumblebee Movie just seems like a match made in the Afterspark! It'd be the perfect retro altmode for her!
