    Rung is the main choice, although his altmode has zero play value, so we're probably never going to see it. Nautica because we need more fembots, and the DJD because, as nice as MMC's offerings are, I'd prefer not to pay $80 for a Deluxe-class toy of Vos.

    #1. Rung: A main character from season 1 of MTMTE, who was well developed, and had a distinct role in the characters' dynamic. Too bad that, as he doesn't really turn into anything that can be played with, we'll never officially get a proper toy of him.

    #2. DJD: Utter wastes in the comics, but their designs are just so bad ass. Kaon turns into an electric chair, Vos turns into a sniper rifle, one of the big ones can grind up 'Bots in his chest, the other big one I think is a smelting pool, and Tarn has a Decepticon symbol mask, and wields a double fusion cannon. Too bad these designs are likely considered too violent for kids. Good thing MMC exists.

    #3. Nautica: She was the only properly developed character of MTMTE season 2, aside from Megatron, and there aren't enough female toys. Pretty much the only reasons. Hopefully her toy turns out OK.

    I agree. But boy, did that idea get shot down quickly in another thread.

    I kinda hope Megatronia appears in MTMTE Season 3 and we get an American release.

    What's wrong with Victorion? And I really don't see how they could fit Megotronia into the comics. I guess they already defied logic with the explanation for the replacement limbs and blatantly retconned Sentinel Prime's death, but that was for the sake of selling toys. There's no real reason for Hasbro to sell Megatronia when they already have Victorion.

    Well they can have more female Decepticons in other ways, and the poll determined that Victorion's rival was Galvatronus, who does exist in the IDW continuity (well, not anymore, but they did fight once).

    Hold tight, folks! Mastermind Creations is making most of these characters. Plus, they are of good quality with no floppy hollowness.

    Does anyone else feel that TAV Ground Vehicon General could be easily repurposed as a Rom CHUG figure with some red paint app behind the clear chest? Rom CHUG.jpg

    I'm not sure if Rom is really suited for a TF line.

    Surprised at the lack of votes for Riptide. Dude's got a great design and we could always use some more aquatic robots.

    I see your angle but it could be a fun homage figure like how CW Viper does for the GI Joe brand. Plus it would be a good reason to release the TAV General figure in the west, with Revolution in high gear and hopefully IDW following thru with the Rom franchise.
