    Omega Supreme, Six Shot, Reflector & Doc & Mini-Omega all got a Black repaint.. more of that style exists if you count G2 Sideswipe & Sky Shadow, Sky Warp, Machine Boy Nemesis Prime as one too. Not to mention the various "Off Topic" items like The Black SWAT team themed items.

    If they wanted to keep pushing those out then Black Starscream might be a nice one to do too (though logic usually suggests one does Ghost Starscream 1st) I can see a grey Shockwave and Black Megatron perhaps fitting this style of release too.

    I’d like to see them do Perceptor and repaint it into Magnificus.

    I'm a little disapointed WJ stopped where they did with the headmaster OSKOs. I do kind wish MFT would consider doing some of the Minibots in Black like the limited Keychains - but then I always say the same about the Titans Returns / POTP Legends class ones too (or KO's there of).

    So a Black MFT Huffer might be kinda fun to have. or there relevant e-hobby repaint there off - they'd be kinda referencing both then.

    [edit p.s.]

    Small PS on a similar topic - I wonder if Pocket Toys or Mech Fans Toys have considered making the modest remoulds to do the more G1 toy deco option that Perfect effect made of their Reflector with the new chests and individual colours for the robot mode accents that would be kinda nice to see perhaps.

    I've been thinking the same thing!
    It'd be great just to have more visual variety and to tell the Reflectors appart. Also, It'd be awesome if they could remold the Perfect Effect cassettebots and make them more toon accuaret. But leave them the same size as the originals since I think that that works just fine with any legends collection.

    ^Finally, it feels good to have the band back together....

    In my opinion, the quality isn't as good on the last two as it was on the first three. Grimlock especially, he feels almost like a KO of a KO.....

    Anyway, they are still pretty awesome. Bring on the blue toon swoop and say bye-bye to the red toon swoop.....

    Bummer about the quality of the last two. I just got around to ordering the first three a couple of days ago. I've got the the set of DX9 originals already, but figured why not when they are only $16 each. They can't be as bad as the power of the primes ones on my shelf now. I want to order the last two, but I've gone a little crazy on purchases the past couple weeks. I just ended up ordering a Huge Dragon and the head upgrade on a whim yesterday.

    ^ I heard that on crazy purchases.....

    Black Series Solo movie figures have been my impulse purchases lately. Being a cheapskate myself, I can't resist buying figures at a good price, even if I'm not that interested in them....

    Emphasis Bird's Nest and her Swoop bike for 30$, I'll bite on that. Six months later, she's listed on my Ebay account for BIN 20$ free shipping....

    Buy high and sell low, that's always been my philosophy on toy lines I'm Luke warm on.....

    Does the toon color MFT Grimlock come with the crown or was that only included with the toy color version?

    Yes, a ball peg for the elbows and a hinge for the hands would have been real nice......

    Pretty much all their former properties as Disney publicly announced after the acquisition that Fox, Fox searchlight and other properties will continue to operate as brands.
    So that'll be Alien, Predator, Simpsons figures and anything from Fox branded productions I would have thought.

    Maybe that power loader suit that is coming with MFT's Weirdwolf was a hint towards upcoming stuff....

    Oh hell. Diaclone scale Aliens and Predators to use with my TF would be fantastic.

    Too bad the Aliens action fleet playsets and vehicles are kind of pricey these days.

    Got my MFT Reflector in the mail today, about 20 minutes before I had to be at work, can't wait to spend some more time with it.
