    Lockdown. YES!

    More Dinobots. YES!

    Love to see the Velociraptor and Plesiosaurus that have been produced by others already. That would be a great start!

    It would really depend on the character, so maybe :)

    There are a few I would actually like to see. I'd buy a G1-style Barricade. I'd love a G1 Slipstream/Female Seeker mold. Technically they are in the G1 continuity already, but I'd buy MP Beast Machines Vehicon Generals. I'd buy MP versions of Armada Cyclonus, Demolishor, Starscream, Megatron, and Tidal Wave. I'd buy MP versions of TFA Lockdown and Lugnut in a G1 style. I'd buy MP versions of the entire TF: Prime cast (favorite TF show ever).... I wouldn't want those G1-ified though

    I collect strictly G1 MPs at this point, but I'd buy a G1 styled MP Barricade in a heartbeat.

    Who do I throw my money at?

    I'm surprised KFC/XTB hasn't done Slipstream yet since her design would be easily pulled off in a similar method to Andras. Perhaps next year? Cross your fingers!

    How, exactly? I'm not seeing it. I mean, I'd buy an Mp Slipstream, but I don't see the relation to the Andras mold or TF scheme.

    I'm super-happy with FansHobby's RID2001 Scourge. He's in my otherwise G1-only collection.
    Now gimme more RID2001 characters: Rail Racer, Car Bros., Omega Prime, etc.

    I'm getting close to being done with transformers and this idea would keep me buying. My chug/g1 collection is nearly done and mmc's idw stuff is rolling along at a slow pace, so if someone started putting these out starting next year or so that timing would be good.
    Definitely interested!

    Realy? It all comes down to what that translated design looks like. From most any of the cartoon series, I would be very interested. From the movies translated into a more classics design, I'd have to see it first.

    I edited it out of a couple of the old G1 character models, plus added the Mustang parts.

    I'm surprised to see this thread was resurrected after so much time.
    The company I was talking to about this passed on the idea. I still think it'd be awesome, there is so much expansion potential.
    If you guys do think it'd sell well, keep talking about it and let the companies know you want it. I'm still in touch with this particular company (XTB) and I could insist, but I think they need to hear it from possible buyers.

    I love this idea in general. Especially a slipstream. We have so many substorms and acid rains. Give me a slipstream please. Seriously I’d love this kind of like and it’s more likely to win me over than the badcube nature’s pr the cross dimension

    I think Slipstream could be easily done by any company with a regular G1 mold, just change the thighs, head and maybe a few more parts and you are done; think on how Tracks was turned into a female mold with just a few tweaks.

    G1 MP versions of Bulkhead, Lockdown, Barricade and Knock Out would make me so happy. You would not believe.

    I would be in for any classic car with G1 style robot mode. Barricade is a yes, and I would love to see Hot Rod Citroen DS with G1 robot mode.

    Yes to a remolded G1 Bulkhead from the Inferno/Grapple mold and personally I would love Knockout using the Jazz mold.

    Sure. I'd buy that Barricade.
