    Megatron is too stocky and static, can't get any awesome sword poses out of him (even with his massive ass sword from Siege, I've tried)

    I want to see a Bludgeon remolded into Megatron!

    There is precedent.

    I just always assumed at some point Hasbro would try to do more Pretender characters from non-Pretender molds, since they aren't A-list enough to warrant their own mold let alone subline. Megatron or Impactor both make good enough facsimile of a pre-Pretender Bludgeon design.

    I really like the transformation on Siege Astrotrain, but I don't like the battle damage, the excess detail, and the "Cybertronian" sculpting.
    I know most people hated the fact he was a voyager at leader price, so I can't imagine lots of peeps will be into this, but I would really like a commander class Earth mode Astrotrain from the siege Astrotrain mold with a much better looking coal cart and without gaps.
    Or even a titan class Earthrise Astrotrain with a full track set and a micromaster train station.

    I also really still want a Shockwave more closely resembling the animation without the battle damage and excess detail.

    I know they're not a-list characters, so it'll never happen, but hey: this is the dumb idea thread.

    I think Impactor would work much better for Bludgeon than Siege or ER Megatron, it could be made pretty close to his earlier IDW appearance without too much remolding. I'd really prefer her get his own mold based on the Pretender shell though, preferably Leader class to ensure he has enough articulation to pull off plenty of cool sword poses.

    If hasbro made a new version of Mach Kick, with a bridle & saddle that become weapons for his bot mode.

    How about a Visionaries three-pack featuring Witterquick and Arzon vs. Cindarr; translucent repaints (like Hologram Mirage) of Cheetor, Maximal Skywarp and Optimus Primal. Their heads would not be translucent and be based upon their human heads in the cartoon.

    A long term line where every tf character that got more than one cartoon episode appearance gets a new 6 inch (bot mode) figure. Yes, even titans and planet formers. 6 inch constructicons, then a 6 inch devastator that turns into something, I don't actually care.

    But here's the kicker: multipacks with namesakes. g1 red alert packaged with UT red alert, g1/UT/animated prowl three pack, that kinda thing.

    If POTP Predaking was remolded into Magnaboss...

    Divebomb could be remolded into Skywarp, Razorclaw into Lio Junior/ Or Lio Convoy, and one of the quadrupedal 'leg' bots remolded into Santon/Ironhide.

    And the other two limbs could be given G1 names...

    This should be Shattered Glass Ramjet's color scheme for a repaint of Earthrise Ramjet.

    Looking at my Predaking, I had the idea for a Action Master partner combiner. Yes, there would be two Decepticons in the team. There could be a story that the beasts were originally all friends before they were partnered with Autobots and Decepticons. And there is nobody Tantrum could be repainted into so I went with both legs being repaints of Headstrong.

    Motormaster & Motorbreath remolded from Kingdom Ultra Magnus. Motorbreath was a straight repaint of Legends Optimus Prime so I like to think he is a separate character to Motormaster. The cab can remain untouched, but the trailer needs a heavy remold. Obviously Motormaster would no longer have his cab as feet.

    You know how theres a character called Big Daddy? What if they made a new version of him, as a Duocon(or a headmaster idk) and gave him a new companion called Hot Momma?

    Earthrise Doubledealer redeco into Machine Wars Soundwave with a new Head. Doubledealer already has a compartment for Soundwave's minions so this is pretty straightforward, they could also axe the bird mode to save on cost.

    Takara Tomy Generations Selects Liokaiser. They take the Platinum Edition Combiner Wars Liokaiser and retool it to add Deluxe class Leozack and Jallguar. And Deathcobra and Lyzack as either individual packs, two packs or joint with Liokaiser.

    Just got an idea for this whilst watching the Year of the goat Prime. Seeing how Amazon Prime (The Amazon Optimus Prime) is rumored to be an ER OP retool and it has an extended front, it could be retooled to make G2 Laser Prime, Car Robots Scourge and YOTG Prime.
