    Obviously, the recent comics have given us some original characters like Rung, Tarn and others that deserve toys. But the digging through my photobucket I found these gems that would probably make pretty cool toys :) 

    These are from the time traveling GIJoe vs Transformers volume 2

    And of course, Don's designs from the Beast Wars books. This Magmatron needs to be done SO BAD.

    Recent comics? Those might still get done, Straxus was made, and Impactor is on several 3P wishlists, but there are some that have lain fallow for ages still. The comics characters I want most these days are Big Red (he's from page 3!!! We've been waiting for him longer than any other character):

    And Scrounge:

    All good choices. Spanner too. If only Marvel had characters called Tool and Box would would be fully equipped with an innuendo squad to compete with the 3Ps.

    Scrounge would make a shit figure, but I want one anyway. Ditto Rung.

    Big Red by Maketoys in 2021!

    One company had teased they were making Devil's Due Cobra HiSS Optimus Prime, but it never came to be. I still want it.

    Also, if someone wanted to make this Transform, I wouldn'd be against it.

    I think Xovergen did an okay job with Grand Patriot, but I think someone could do better.

    Wouldn't mind seeing a Bludgeon like that.

    Yeah, if they anyone could somehow make Scrounge I'd be absolutely delighted. The Smelting Pool was quite possibly my favourite bit of G1 fiction, so getting Scrounge would be brilliant.

    A group of scraplets who could combine would be fun too. Maybe some extremely modular design so you could put them together numerous ways.

    Scrounge for sure.

    We need to give Slay-Ride some 3P love.

    I think that Maketoys would do that Prowl design justice with their Manga Mech line. They could even make a Prowl head for Green Giant as a bonus.

    The new PE kit on ROTF Bludgeon comes really damn close. Once I had that set in-hand I fell in love with that figure all over again. If only someone would do something about the feet....

    I'd be with you on Guiltor... but I'd be real leary of the the results. Depends on the design team, I guess.

    What do we think Big Red turns into? :) 

    A real Rack 'n' Ruin could be cool, but again, it'd depend on a lot of factors.

    a mustang hot rod and a pimpmobile jazz is indeed interesting for a figure.

    Rolling Thunder Prime looks sweet! Is that someones Art or was that used in some Transformers comic?
    I'm all in for some 60's-70's style us-cars man. Having Autobots transforming to musclecars or some landyacht would be a dream come true!
