    What movie figure would you make?

    Imagine you're the CEO of Hasbro for a moment... What movie figures would you have made (that haven't been confirmed already)? My list is as follows...

    Leader (or supreme) Blackout, who needs to be larger than Megatron
    Leader Shockwave
    Leader DoTM Megatron
    Supreme Jetfire, because he needs to be huge, as he was in the movie.
    A movie accurate Jetwing Optimus Prime
    Leader Class the Fallen, because he also needs to be huge.
    Deluxe Mirage
    Human Alliance Mirage with Jerry Wang or Carly.
    Human Alliance Sideways with Alice (Robot or Human)
    Leader Class Long Haul
    Human Alliance Ratchet, because Leader would be too big
    Human Alliance Wheeljack with Mearing
    Legends Brains. (Smaller than Human Alliance Humans figures)
    Legends Wheelie. (Smaller than Human Alliance Human figures)
    EDIT: Somehow I managed to forget a Leader Class Bonecrusher
    Human Alliance Jolt with Leo

    I think that's it... Not in order though. What would you make?

    Moar human alliance.

    HA Ransack...the Biplane ROTF scout. Fantastic lil guy, would be a great size and finally get a plane for HA

    HA Sideways. One of my most fav movieverse bots..specially the deluxe mold

    HA 77 Trans am with the bird on the hood, and autobot logos on the sail panels. The head would most def be topped with the shaker hood

    I wouldent mind a decent attempt at a HA Cybertronian mode. Like a HA WFC Bumblebee or cliffjumper

    Well, IF I was the CEO, I would do about the same as they are now. As the CEO, it would be my job to generate profit. So, in oder to make the best profit, the current formula seems to be working.

    As a collector, the current formula sucks. But If I was a CEO with a collector's mentality, the company would probably start losing money and I would lose my job. Just sayin'.

    Less shitty looking plastic, haha...


    Maybe not to the level of United stuff & detailed paint jobs, but more metal flake stuff, especially when it comes to deluxe/voyagers that don't rely on strength that much, and especially for greys & whites when applicable that tend to suffer the most from regular casting in terms of visual appeal.

    For example, less unpainted gray PVC? Because that is the single most unappealing color/material combination, and also the most common.

    I would release a few Optimus Primes, but in decos that aren't "slightly different combination of red and blue." Definitely a Nemesis Prime release, at least for the RTS version. I really feel like Hasbro is underestimating the appeal of "Evil Optimus Prime. Possibly with a sword" to the kids.

    I'd change up the DotM line a bit to be less car-heavy. Maybe throw a Legends-class Thundercracker out there.

    Weapon booster packs: 5mm peg packs with either Targetmasters or Mechtech weapons. This is a great time for this because almost every single figure has external hardpoints in vehicle mode for additional weapons, even (especially) the ones that don't make much sense. If ever there were a time for weapon packs, Mechtech would be it.

    Going by some of those suggestions, I think I'd be making a new resume.

    Ebay:
    A weaponized roadbuster
    a new leader prime with dotm remold, unhindered by electronics
    a new sentinal prime
    supreme jetfire, as mentioned before which would have parts come off to combine with new leader prime mold, and doesn't have the entire robot hanging off the underside of three plane mode.
    A refined devastator that would use the legends toys as base ideas turning them into deluxe, voyager,.leader, or supreme figures
    a new rotf leader megaron. Let dotm megatron, hell, remake all 3 megatron leaders.
    A real 3rd bike sister, but shrink all 3 to the HA size for good size comparison, and maybe make them able to combine well.
    A supreme class fallen,
    HA sized bonecrusher with hollo-driver
    supreme blackout
    A HA based deluxe jazz,
    hftd battle blade bb remold into the 07 version and dotm version with all mods done by savio prime
    a new 76 camaro bb
    new rotf twins based on HA's
    New Leader Ironhide based on the HftD Deluxe figure.
    I think that's it.. For now, lol.

    If I was the CEO, I'd just have the design team make fully painted prototypes of the toys I wanted. That way I'd have every figure I wanted (plus a few extras to sell on eBay at ridiculous prices, 'natch), and I wouldn't run the risk of losing money for the company. :ev:
