The 1984-1988 figures getting the equivalent glow up to MOTU: Origins.
Is that not just Earthrise/Kingdom?
No, I mean just like MOTU Origins, taking the original G1 molds and add articulation to them.
Essentially like this custom by @Sky Warp 55
Very small rant since normally people don't want repaint but am I the only one weirded out that the recent Megatron figures never got a black repaint? Black repaints were all the rage back in the day! They even homaged that in Cyberverse cartoon with the alternate universe Megatron clearly being based off black repaints of old buckethead. I don't know maybe I just wish we got a black repaint of Siege/Earthrise Megatron? I think it could look quite good.
I remember there were people hoping that's what the second Netflix Megatron would be, instead of the exact same repaint we'd gotten before but with blue paint on the gun instead of red and slightly different battle damage.
I just find it annoying that Siege/Earthrise Megatron was recolored a lot and yet only two decos weren't gray. Siege Arctic G2 and the G2 Earthrise one. There are SO MANY Megatron retools and redecoes to make!
Hm.. I don't know, myself. Could be cool, but unlike MOTU, the proportions were turbo fucked in G1. Look at Swindle. Or Megatron. Or the Vanettes. Prime and Soundwave could pull it off, shockwave maybe, but I don't think that it could be a big thing
A request by @DrakenDaWolfy - Bunny ears Cyclonus:
If you want this as a profile picture for whatever godforsaken reason, have this:
Forget Core/Legends class main guys and make them EVEN SMALLER!! MICROMASTER SIZED OPTIMUS, SOUNDWAVE, MEGATRON AND ALL THE OTHERS!!!
Moonracer, Novastar, Greenlight, & Lancer from the Chromia retool and Chromia & Nightbird from the original tooling to satisfy collectors by not reissuing the originals but still letting those who want them be able to get them at a reasonable price.
I’d like a box set of the main early G1 Decepticons at the Core Class scale - Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Combiner Wars Shockwave.
Thundercracker and Skywarp would also be available separately.
That was something I had been wanting too. I believe they can do it as well. Sell them in packs of two as with Micromasters, but get rid of the combined gimmick.
Honestly, not what I was expecting either. I was expecting a Easter recolor or something of Cyclonus, but I got that. I will agree it's a "...why?" but, I guess it could be used for shitposts. It was a mistake on my part for not being exactly clear to the digibasher.
I'd like a remold of Fasttrack as Roadblock's inner robot.
Naw man. Battlemaster Megatron to re-enact those stupid moments where someone else use him as a gun.
I really expected Reverse Convoy to be released in Titanmasters. Seems like a big missed opportunity. I do hope we get a 'G2 profile' Megatron tank eventually to get these guys out.
This blew my mind, watched it like 200 times:

Hard Head would have been perfect, especially since one of the heads could store in his turret....or you could retool the turret to have the head popout....
I know Micromasters didn't sell well, but...
Titan class Decepticon Space-Shuttle with Skystalker.
Converts into base mode, then into 2' robot mode.
Household objects TF's. Like that mockup of a video camera Megatron.
Tv's, computers, other devices...antique/vintage technology? Record Players, Radios, old 50's type tv's?
Like some botbots, only the style would be similar to 'normal' TF's.
A line of purely space based TF's. The Voyager probe, a space station, space shuttles, Launch complexes, etc.
Btw I'm surprise we haven't seen a non-Pretender Bludgeon from the two recent Megatron molds. All it would need is a new chest and head. Guess Hasbro decided that Megatron molds only going to be used for a variation of Megatron himself.
