    Selfishly in going to say I want childhood vindication. I would love another generations beast wars line, but I'm not holding my breath for it

    I just wanna say this and I'm done. That cybertron scene was nice, and if looked at in an isolated bubble, works great. But since Bumblebee we've gotten G1 reissues, Siege and Earthrise (blatantly G1), and Cyberverse where most of the cast is just stylized G1 designs. And WFC is only 2/3 done so we'll see the third toyline in the trilogy be G1 but with THIS twist in 2021. That is a lot of G1-eque designs in just 3 years and it's become extremely tiresome to see. I like G1, but I don't want nothing BUT G1.

    Accessory speculation if it's Ratchet...
    I know in 2007 he had his rifle and buzz saw hand.
    Don't remember him having any other accessory options.

    Blackout is quite popular, I don't think they will not make it, I personally don't care about Frenzy.

    I... wasn't attacking you either. I was just explaining how "inspired" is not only not the same as being an adaptation, but it doesn't really persist past movie 1 where it was tenuous at best.

    TF1 barely held much relation to G1, but that was almost totally abandoned in ROTF and never returned aside from the recycled plots of DOTM and TLK... kinda, but even those were petty vague and not really a direct take from G1 so much as science fiction/fantasy tropes in general.

    Fair enough, not going to lie, admittedly ignorant when it comes to the plot points of most of the movies, just a fan of the dope autobot designs. One of the few incarnations where I just care about the toys... hug offer still on the table.

    I think he might also come with Mikaela, but other than that, I can't think of anything

    I hope Ratchet comes with his machine gun. The saw blade doesn’t interest me and nothing else would really make sense to include other than his medical scanner.

    I guess a minifigure of Mikaela if you want to round out the display but I’d rather the budget used for a figure go to more paint apps instead.

    Nobody counts the redecoes except TakaraTomy. :lol 

    By that logic we should be sighing over yet another MPM Starscream based on TF1.

    To be fair, we couldn’t even get a proper deluxe Dino in 2011, just a Takara only repaint of Sideways because Ferrari.

    I don’t get why Ferrari agreed to be part of the movie about giant deadly robots if they’re so protective of their brand on the toy side.

    I don't get why Bay specifically asked to have a Ferrari in the movie when toys of the character couldn't be made or why Hasbro allowed him to do so!

    IIRC the problem isn't Ferrari being protective of their brand's depiction. That's Porsche and (previously) Volkswagon. Ferrari are tied to Bandai when it comes to toys, I think.

    Licensing is not necessarily a blanket agreement. Film rights does not equate to toy rights, or vice versa. It just comes down to how the licensor wants their brand to be represented, and the manner in which they sign off on their image can seem completely arbitrary. That's just the way the system works.

    It's not like Michael Bay gets any royalties from the action figure sales, so he doesn't necessarily care if the car can be made into a toy or not. He just wants a cool car for his shot.
