    I know this would never happen, but I would love to see RiD Spychangers get deluxe size toys in the Generations toyline. Hasbro should leave the car models alone, or at least leave them recognizable as the Spychangers they always were if they make updates.

    I'd buy the crap out of those toys. I like the Spychangers we got, but I always felt they could be better.

    I'd even settle for them being Legends, with as awesome and articulated as those are. I feel like RiD needs a little more love in Generations period, although I do consider Sky-Byte a good sign.

    That said, Deluxe Spychangers would look rad as heck on God Magnus' car carrier mode, so...

    A deluxe Crosswise figure in clear blue plastic? I would be all over that.

    Yes please. I've always loved their designs, so an updated deluxe that better reflects their animation model would be fantastic.

    I dunno. I like the Spychangers just the way they are...small, simple, and portable. Whatever updates they got would probably have weird, unnecessarily complicated transformations.

    This is a huge plus for me. I love complex transformations. I know most people don't though.

    It would be awesome if they were all turned into flip-changers like Indy Heat and Wrecker Hook.

    Yeah, either Deluxe or the current Legends series would both be glorious.

    I would prefer deluxe sizes seeing as how the original toys didn't have much articulation

    If you leave the door panels down against his arms,, Generations deluxe bumblebee looks enough like a spychanger. With some alt mode reshelling he could theoretically work as everyone

    I'd like that Smokescreen mold with the colors he has to be made deluxe.

    How many Spychangers were there? Considering the amount...

    I think a repaint would satisfy both the fandom and Hasbro.

    6 that actually appeared in the cartoon
    Hot shot, Crosswise, Wars, Rev, Ironhide, and Mirage
    and if memory serves the main 6 also had "Supercharged" alternate decos.
    then in the toy line there was Side Swipe and Daytonus.

    They had the Dollar General repaints too that Smokescreen is what got me back into Transformers.
