    Question:
    Those 3P figurines of the Human characters flat out sucked. There was no demand because they were just plain bad. Same as the Huffer and Pipes toys. Have you seen how derpy the Sari figure's face was?

    So, no, it's not a matter of there not being demand. It's a matter of not buying poor-quality stuff.

    If 3P decides to do animated, I'd want them to do Blackout. Make him not partsform and less hollow and have him be able to move his head. I absolutely love that design and almost no one was able to actually buy that toy :( 

    But really they should start with a much more recognizable character like Optimus or Starscream or Wreck Gar (yes please!).

    I know this isn't toy related but I dunno where else to post this:lol 

    So Megatron's alt mode is stupidly huge. I always could tell from this drawing, a helicopter with five seats in the cockpit, thats ridiculous. But I wanted to see just how big it actually is

    So I did a little bit of editing to line the cockpit interior view up with the actual one on the full sized helicopter, and then using the seat sizes, scaled it beside an Airbus A330 passenger jet. This helicopter has the same mass as an average sized passenger jet

    In the same vein, these may not be physical toys, and I regret that they might never be, but I got fed up with not having at least some decent representation of prominent TFA humans (plus an OC of mine, just sort of block them out if you prefer canon characters only). So, I created my own using Lego Digital Designer.

    Eat your heart out, Hasbro.

    Yeah, the Lugnut toys we got are too tiny. I'd want them to do a bigger version of him.

    They should do a Titan Class multi-pack with Omega Supreme, three Lugnut Supremes, and include a bonus leader class Lugnut!

    That would be absolutely ridiculous and I'd buy it on the spot

    Lol those 3P human figures weren’t great quality, but I still want them just to have a representation of them. One benefit of Animated MPs is that I could definitely see some human characters as accessories for figures.

    My dream MP Megatron would have an accessible cockpit where you could seat a kidnapped Professor Sumdac.

    Shadow Blade Megatron, I may have a favourite colour. And thanks, I love him, though his greatness lies also in how good the mold and the plastic is. I don’t know why but both he and Megatron have a nice in hand feel to them.

    Animated Swindle needs an update; I heard bad things about his shoulders, given they're made of clear plastic.
