    I'd like a new head for Galvatron, along with guns for Fort Max and Cerebros.
    Also I want transtector bodies for the Titanmasters (specifically Horri-bull, Flywheels, and Siren).

    A Moonracer head for TR Wheelie...and...a slingshot for both...for those that would be interested in repainting an extra Wheelie...and...maybe some slender more feminine bits to help in the transition of the mold from male to female... #fembotsneedlove

    Very few fixes needed but plenty of scope of augmenting what is already out there.

    In no particular order:

    1. Double packs with static head and target master robot for Blurr, Scourge and future traditional targetmasters
    2. New head and cannon for Galvatron
    3. Bodies for Titan Masters?
    4. Additional weapons for Fort Max that work in robot mode and base modes.
    5. Probably not viable but replace Powermaster Primes cab cover in robot mode with some that allows for a powermaster to fit in. More for those who must have that feature.
    6. Tail for Skullcruncher that splits apart and fills in leg gaps.
    7. More weapons for Hardhead

    Bodies for headless Titanmasters would be cool, but I'd guess they'd still come with their own different heads, seeing that not everyone would want a headless robot and/or not care for hunting down an official Titanmaster.

    Here's a simple one though: faces. Remove one screw from a Titanmaster and face comes right off. They can be easily replaced. A MTMTE-styled comedian face for Skullcruncher, a cartoon-accurate face for Hardhead (yes, Takara's exists, but it would still be nice), or a better head for Nightbeat. They'd be cheap! Too cheap probably, they'd probably be bundled with other add-ons.

    I just really, really want a comedian face for Skullcruncher, really.

    Yeah the market for creating transforming bodies for people who might have bought a head is probably small even by third party standards.

    Fixed head and transforming guns would likely be smarter business.

    All I have now if Fort Max ... but he really feels like a watered down Metroplex.

    - MMM's knees would do a lot to help his fortress mode, but I feel like more could be done with the hollow parts that are inside of his legs. Maybe collapsible walls that can fold out when you transform them, to add dimension to a façade if you put in in base mode. If they were complicated enough you may be able to add spaces for smaller TFs.

    - I'd love a replacement piece so it could use Warden as a head. I haven't taken it apart, but it has to be doable. Maybe it could come with some parts to allow Max to use his gun and some bits to use as a tower instead of Cerebros.

    - Better hands. I have MMM's hands, but they're really loose on Metro, and they're in the wrong colour.

    - Something to put in that forearm opening. Why neuter that functionality??

    - Just ... more. Overall.

    Use the iron factory red drone set, should come with two red guns that were for their turrets figure. Perfect guns for chrome dome imo

    I like the idea of a crown for Galvatron and Apex armour for Sentinel (it would also help make him more distinct from Astrotrain). I wouldn't mind some sort of adaptor for Skullsmasher's tail/weapon either, so he could hold it more like a shield.

    Arm fillers for Optimus are a must. I'm planning on getting the Takara version anyway, which may not have the hollow arm problem, but I also want to get the blue version of the Hasbro Powermaster Optimus.

    Weapons for Fort Max would be nice. Hopefully, someone will use the opportunity to make more for Metroplex, as well. I'd also like to have covers for the seats on some of those Titans Return guns, especially Optimus's.

    Re: weapons for Fort Max and Metroplex
    The Iron Factory upgrade sets all come with TONS of extra weapons which are meant for other figures but mainly Metroplex and now Fort Max. Those stands holding up laserbeak and Buzzsaw, each is really just guns. I didn't get all these for the weapons but they were a nice addition. The figures are great too for a Legends scale (which go well with CW Sky Lynx)

    I really love that idea of using the empty space in Fort Max's legs somehow. If you had some type of foldable part that could secure the legs against the ground in base mode when they're made vertical so that they don't wobble all over the place I think it would help the figure considerably.

    Pretty much all a Fort Max Upgrade. Preferrably PE to do it.

    #1. Warden attachment piece.
    #2. Main Gun and Master Sword.
    #3. Red hip guns w/side replacements.
    #4. Grommit and Gasket.

    Do this and I'm happy.

    Other folks have mentioned them already, but I want to reiterate: Fort Max needs his gun, Gasket, and Grommet. Heck, remold the Metroplex gun in blue; that's close enough.

    Personally, I'd like more weapons and arm-fillers for Hardhead, remold of Astrotrain to be less flat (Hell, just give him a shield that can connect in spaceship mode), and I'm absolutely dying to see someone provide Fort Max with his classic Hip Cannons. Feel that BOTH Hasbro and Takara missed a huge opportunity to make cannons that can plug into the screw holes (?) on his hips.

    Beast Titan Masters like the ancient Headmasters in IDW or the Japanese standalone Headmasters like Shuffler would be an interesting idea. One issue is getting them to sit in the seat that better fits a humanoid figure so that your beast figure isn't loose. The bigger issue is can there be enough consumer interest that it is worth making little animals that transform into heads of obscure or completely new characters?

    I just want an adapter to be able to put PE's Fort Max in head mode on the new Fort Max.
