    This is just a bit of fun but what if MP combaticons were supplied with a part of B.O.T. For each release .Sort of like a marvel legends BAF figure but in masterpiece form :D .Swindle would have his brain module or head.A nod to the episode



    (Again just some banter) :)

    He would have a gold repaint option.

    Now I want pink laser effects so I can do this:

    I like hovercrafts and floating GI Joe Hovercraft was one of my favorite toys (I still have it). If MP Seaspray floats, it would make it more desirable to me. But overall, I'd rather have Powerglide and Cosmos.

    His accessories will be the entire lineup of MP figures in a gold paintjob.

    In all seriousness, MP Beachcomber would have to come with an interchangeable gold hand as an accessory.

    Not terribly excited with the direction this line has been taking (Ramjet from the already abused MP-11 mold, overpriced Shockwave, unecessary Magnus repaint, unecessary Red Alert repaint, Inferno). They need to really wrap up the real car series characters at this point - Feel like the highpoint of the line was Wheeljack and Bumblebee. We need Jazz, Trailbreaker, Skids, Mirage, and Sunstreaker. Only figure since Hot Rod I am interested in is MP Primal this far, which is unfortunately also overpriced...

    In all likelihood, MP Beachcomber would come with a golden hand (from the Lagoon) and furry, woodland creatures.

    I'm glad my suggestion dispensed with all the Seaspray nonsense. :D

    In the case of Beachcomber (over a certain blue/yellow/white hovercraft,who will remain nameless,I hope) is an Awesome Choice for the MP Line,as a kid I always wanted on offroad dune buggy (the real one,but the closest I ever got was Beachcomber) and even still today I wish that would happen.

    I realize if he does happen Beachcomber is likely to be the same size as MP Bumblebee,but I would love it even more if he was Carbot size like Wheeljack and Sideswipe,and just because their rank was always Minibot they were the same size as most of the other Autobots from the show.Also I hate to bring up a certain 3P Version of him but if Takara could do their own and be say $20 to $25 cheaper I would buy Takara's instead,as BC is one of the better G1 characters from the show and hope he happens one day.

    Iirc guys like powerglide and beach comber werent m ch smaller than autobot cars in season 2. Maybe beachcomber could be taller than bumblebee but shorter and as thick as the autobot cars.

    I think the next MP minibot will be Brawn (taller than Bumblebee but shorter than Wheeljack, Prowl, etc) with his drill as a accessory

    I understand how you feel, but I am cool with the things you are disliking. Magnus repaint doesn't seem necessary to me, but I get that they want to make money off the mold and if some actually want it, great for them? I don't have to spend my money so I am ok with it.

    Shockwave could be cheaper. May have to hope he makes his way to TRU or start saving?

    The cone head seekers, heck I am just glad they are being made and are an option. This time last year it seemed like many here were doubtful they'd ever get made.

    I also understand that a company would want to "string us along." If I am focused on season 1 characters (and I am) then the company won't want to toss out all season 1 characters because once I get all I want . . . I will probably head out. But if they toss out Tracks and other season 2 characters (and other characters from other branches of Transformer World) I may wind up getting hooked into those branches too (Inferno will be hard to pass up as I do recall having him as a child).

    Me personally, I can't wait for the next season 1 character. Would love to see Brawn, Cliffjumper, Jazz, or Sunstreaker. The other guys are lower on my list, but even seeing Trailbreaker (nothing against this guy, but the character never seemed too defined to me in the cartoon), Gears or Huffer would be exciting because I could cross them off the list.

    Also, man do I want to see another official dinobot please.

    Brawn isn't a complete impossibility - he's another MP they can probably squeak out without licensing, and I'd argue he was a little more prominent in the show than someone like Gears or Huffer, so I don't see him being too out of the question.

    Of course, now that I have 3P Boost to tide me over, you all know who my big minibot wish is. :D

    Why in the world would Grapple be a TTomt mall exclusive??? It seems like every carbot gets at least one repaint in the main MP line, and grapple is the most logical one.
