    I don't think those were ever actually fully planned as much as they were a "we would have maybe done this if we still had the license".

    Hardhead was planned to get a generations toy. it was a retool of the generations warpath toy. In warpath's instructions he has a different head sculpt which resembles hardhead. Also to support this theory, in an upcoming toy list for 2013 "TRA GENERATIONS DLX HARDHEAD A9252" was listed as a part of the thrilling 30 toyline, Yet this was never released. But hardhead well get his thunder with titans return.
    Speaking of thrilling 30, nightbeat was going to be a retool of reveal the shield jazz. Instead they made a new mold.

    Thats not acceptable in my book. Only in Japan is not equal to readily available which many of those would have been if released stateside. I still don't understand why they never saw release in generations line later on. They pay to cast the molds and never got a full return on that investment. Especially knowing that we wanted many of those toys

    Animated made me sad. I really hope it'll come back just like how Clone Wars is getting a return soon.

    Man, Bodyblock. DEFINITELY on my list. However, now that they have the datapad Rumble and upcoming Frenzy, I'm glad they didn't do that Rumble at retail.

    Ignorance is bliss. You don't know what they didn't finish unless you get shown. If I knew there was some random thing that I'd really love to own, like a planned Diaclone paint scheme at retail, that got cancelled, it'd be more disheartening than it simply never being planned in the first place.

    Those Robot Heroes still mock me. Hell, I didn't even manage to get the Ricochet/Predaking pack.

    Glyph and Detritus may top my list of annoyances, mainly because I sat on those Glyphs that made it out to ebay because I wasn't sure if they were KOs or not.






    EDIT: Missed a comment...

    I'm not really a follower of that particular philosophy. I'd actually like to know what was planned even if it never makes it out. Having it seen means it's being considered and as someone who likes to see how things are made and an inside look into the minds of the designers, it allows us to follow more closely what Hasbro is considering. Plus, if it is really cool, we can make waves and have a chance of getting it released. It's just we usually don't find out until it's too late. Hasbro has been rereleasing old Star Wars Black series molds, so maybe they'll do the same with TFs. Though you can argue that they already have with the G1 Walmart rereleases.

    A lot of this breaks my heart, but it's the first time I saw Star Saber and Fire Convoy were supposed to get the tiny Heroes of Cybertron treatment and those are adorable. Wingblade Optimus also half-counts; I just got the TT version but I hate how Takara painted their Animated toys, I much prefer the flatter Hasbro coloring as it fits the aesthetic better.

    I hate that Defensor head but I will buy any representation of Fire Convoy I can. (This post did remind me I still need the yellow Sam's Club release and the other Titanium Fire Convoy, so that's money I don't need to be spending. :lol )

    They didn't make a new mold, they made a new Nightbeat head to go on the T30 Deluxe Bumblebee mold.

    They were all made around the same time so it confused me.
