    We often ask which characters you want to complete a collection.

    This time it's a little similar, but also different.

    I'll start:
    My main focus is G1, but I would love generations updates of
    Armada Optimus (come on Takara)
    RID Side Burn
    RID Megatron
    BWII Lio Convoy (please, Zoid Liger Zero alt mode)
    TFP Knockout
    TFA Lugnut
    RID15 Strongarm
    Armada Sideways
    RID Black Convoy
    BW Silverbolt
    Energon Cruellock


    There's probably more, but that's what I could think of top of my head.


    How about you? What do you want, that is not part of your main collection's continuity, but still needs to be in your possession someday anyway? :)

    I still don't have Titians Return
    But... I want an RID repaint... I just like the colors
    Someone should tell Hasbro the Green shoulder would fit in with Legacys energon infused look

    Ebay:
    I want modern CHUG/G1-style versions of:
    -Animated Lockdown
    -IDW Drift
    -IDW Windblade
    -Cybertron Override (rumored next year)
    -Prime Knockout (coming next year)
    -Animated Slipstream
    -Animated Lugnut
    -Beast Machines Jetstorm
    -RID Sideburn
    -IDW Jetfire

    I've just realized that we could get about half of these if Hasbro would start including CHUGified figures inspired by Cyberverse designs in Legacy.

    I’d like to see Xaaron finally get a toy. WFC Ruination’s face is not enough.

    IDW Flatline would be nice to see get a toy, it always bothered me that the Decepticons don’t have a dedicated medic most of the time.

    Titan Class Tidal Wave.

    The Multiforce.

    Magnaboss and Tripredacus.

    Animated Oil Slick.

    Basically the entire case of Armada, since unfortunately, the Prime stuff isn't what I wanted.

    If they go a route like Legacy or RTS Lugnut, then:

    Cruellock
    TF1 Blackout
    DOTM Megatron
    DOTM Hatchet
    DOTM Crowbar
    TLK Dreadbot (I just like the van alt for a 'con)
    TLK Nitro Zeus
    HFTD Crankstart
    HFTD Hailstorm
    ROTF Fallen
    TFA Lugnut
    TFP Breakdown
    TFP Knockout
    RID15 Strongarm
    Flamewar
    Aileron
    Armada everyone
    Cybertron Defense Red Alert
    Cybertron Vector Prime
    And if you count them as from a separate continuity, Solus Prime, Onyx Prime and Liege Maximo

    The Unicron Trilogy stuff won't really need any tweaking at all to fit in. There are a couple toyline specific guys here just because I picked up their toys back in the day and really liked their personalities, alt modes, general looks and/or color schemes. Personally think a black and yellow buggy with machine guns and a bit of a potbelly/roof chest, and a cowardly green multi-missile launcher are pretty cool. Though, I'd take Hound and Doubledealer recolors no questions asked.


    If we're just talking about buying guys from separate continuities that I don't want to blend in with my main group, I already missed or will likely miss my shot at most of them just because I'm prioritizing my main collection (they're all movie/movie adjacent bots)

    DOTM Ironhide
    Crowbar
    Crankcase
    Hatchet
    Shockwave
    Hound
    Sideways
    Long Haul
    Grindor
    Hightower
    Overload
    Demolisher
    The Fallen
    Dreadbot
    Onslaught
    Breakaway
    Barricade

    I either want movie bots for their weird appearances, weird alt modes, cool voice actors... or that I want the ROTF game Decepticons in toy form.

    The RID01 cast. The non-show characters are meh but those in the cartoon are must-haves. I have several of the originals but would prefer all-new updates in the Generations style and aesthetic rather than completing the cast with original figures. I'm still bitter about slacking on UW Baldigus!!

    I will include any character who has appeared in official G1 fiction no matter how obscure.

    Some I already have:

    Lugnut
    The Prime Vehicons
    Sky Bite
    Sideburn
    Movie Wreckage renamed Reckage in the fiction.
    Armada Predacon also renamed Preditron.
    Cybertron Ransack
    The Armada Seekers since Starscream reformatted himself into his Armada body in IDW.
    Vector Prime

    Bulkhead and Strongarm were featured among Springer's Wrecker recruits in Nick Roche's final Wreckers chapter.

    G1 Prowl was reformatted into his a CHUG version of Animated Prowl in the Collector's Club Magazine.
    I customised CW Groove as Animated Prowl but I'd love it done officially.

    20170628_231526.jpg

    Everyone bemoans the Armada Sideswipe mold but I have a soft spot for it. I customised Sideswipe and one of his repaints Treadshot (shown here) from CW Groove. The motorcycle mode is a nod to that of Sideswipe's partner Nightbeat.

    20170825_132025.jpg

    Given that they share molds with Stunticons, I'd love Oilpan and Fracture to join Motormaster's crew as Blackjack and Off Road have.

    20200329_200053.jpg 20200501_154300.jpg

    I'd love an update of Checkpoint who I think would make a great character model if Prowl ever became Prime.

    20210905_213135.jpg

    Not sure if Diaclone counts but can we please get a Delta Magnus repaint of Siege Ultra Magnus.

    I'd also love Siege Seeker repaints of every background Seeker in Netflix and Cyberverse.

    Oh and updated Spychangers.

    dcjjj0g-e4957000-2cd2-4e32-a5bc-99eff6068fa9.png

    And Star Wars crossovers with proper Transformers heads.

    20210329_211017.jpg

    And finally for now, the Real Gears.

    My favorites are G1 CHUG figures...and the list of non-G1 figures I'd like to get is pretty short, largely due to a lack of space...haha:

    TFP FE Arcee reissue
    Updated BW Silverbolt

    Want to get a Wheeljack but there doesn’t seem to be that good a G1 version of him (at least in my opinion), but Prime Wheeljack looks mighty fine. Probably going to get my hands on him (at some point lol).

    Also, Vector Prime. I'd love an updated Vector Prime, despite swearing off A/E/C characters.

    Any of the RID2015 Decepticons. Steeljaw, Glowstrike, Quillfire, Thunderhoof, Bisk.....the list is neverending. There are so many good designs in that show & so very, very few toys of them. Generations NEEDS to do those characters justice.
