    With Maketoys having made its own core figures (Gentoo) for its Battle Tanker trailer/armor sets, they are no longer constrained to doing versions based upon Hasbro/Takara decos of the core figure. They have a number of variants of their own coming out (Battle Sentinel, Nemesis & Duke, to name three); I want to know what else you would like to see.

    A couple of repaints of the G2 Laser Prime mode were done by Hasbro that haven't been done as a Battle Tanker set yet:

    The E-Hobby Laser Ultra Magnus:

    and Toxitron (a prototype that was never produced):
    [​IMG]

    In addition, tanker trucks with trailers not based on the Laser Prime mold have been alt-modes several times:

    Dark of the Moon Megatron:
    [​IMG]

    G1 Octane:
    [​IMG]

    Micromaster Pipeline & Gusher (I know, I know, this one is a bit of a stretch):
    [​IMG]

    I'd particularly like to see Battle Tanker redecoed as Laser Ultra Magnus, Toxitron and DOTM Megatron (in the latter case, with a G1-style bucket-head with battle damage on one side). How about you?

    (There are a couple of designs I'd like to see the Gentoo core used either on its own or with a reworked trailer (a hybrid of Energon Rodimus with a G1-Style camper trailer with be BOSS), but first things first.)

    That Toxitron color scheme is by far the craziest.

    I'd really like them to do a rerelease of Nova Prime. That thing is amazing looking.

    Really one of the main reasons I went in on the TFCC's first subscription figures was to get Scrouge JUST to get an add on. Then nope! No add on.

    Toxitron would be cool. Id definitely like to see what maketoys could do with that megatron design as well.

    I never got the appeal of toxitron, its a hideous deco. Kinda makes me feel sick just looking at it but I suppose that's the point.

    Me I want an Octane deco because purple white n black would look real nice on this mold. Honestly though I doubt MT would consider any of these and they've probably already got their next (and supposedly final) deco already chosen and I'm willing to bet its just this again:

    [​IMG]

    Because they know people want this version which is why they're doing the SG prime one again. And they might as well since tonnes of people missed out on both or wanted the tfcc figures for them and they were only on ebay for crazy prices by the time mt got the armor sets out.

    I'd like them to retire the Battle Tanker. The bot upgrades look great. The Tanker integration is kind of garbage. If I had to choose, Toxitron.

    Given this:

    It´s not too far-fetched, right? ;)

    Exactly! Where is that scourge color battle tanker? Is it canceled? If so I am pissed at MT for leading me on like that.

    I've always dreamed of the white cab Magnus was colored and the tanker and armor bits the same as his cartoon color so when you armor him with the chest shoulders and other pieces he's actually a white Magnus all armored in red and blue with his missiles in the shoulders..it would be pretty awesome to have a true Magnus battle tanker

    Megatron and Toxitron would both be cool to see.

    It would be so sick if they could somehow remold the Hyper Novae version for G1 Octane and make him somewhat of a triple changer. Regardless I'm in for whichever repaint they do. I honestly can't wait for both SG Gento's so I can put my botcon core figures back with my other botcon stuff

    You'll end up with an extra core figure, but I suspect that TFCC Scourge will look pretty dope armored up with Namesis' armor.
