Would you buy G1 humans and if so how would you want them released?

    I would. My inkling is towards them getting Battlemaster treatment. The Exosuit would make a nice BM with a bunch of head toolings. Marissa with Afterburner at MM size. Maybe squeak out Carly with Groove.

    But I also think they’d make killer Dinobot accessories since the Dinobots transported a bunch of them in Diaclone driver seats one time. You’d just need to work out how to do the 2005/10 versions. But those IMHO would work as Battlemasters.

    No, but I'd buy chack and una mini figures.

    But I would really like the unnamed male protohuman from code of hero, in mp scale.

    Would prefer the mp/dianaut treatment ... the last chug one was rather uncanny valley 57D38A46-576D-469E-B2CC-D76E24BA35C3.jpeg

    Done by figma or Figurarts(but that's a Bandai subgroup so not a snowballs chance in Hades). Maybe by Revoltech? Takara's Microman line don't do too well with anime faces (Their kantai was just passable at most).

    I would not be opposed but I don't think I would buy them separately. I would rather spend the money on actual Transformer characters. Now if they were available as pack ins, that would be more preferable.

    I was thinking handling them like the exo suit MP might be the best way for standalones.

    The human sculpted/glued onto a vehicle that transforms or becomes a weapon.

    Or just TM scale figs that can ride in cockpits and have foot pegs with TM articulation.

    I’d get the G1 humans, Fanzone, Suri, Dr. Sumdac, and Kicker probably.

    Barring all else, I really want a Titan Master compatible Animated The Headmaster homage packed in somewhere!

    I want all of the major human characters fully articulated like Star Wars Vintage Collection figures.

    So kind of ignoring scale then?

    As near as I can figure, in scale, they’d be 1.2 inches in most vehicles and 2 inches alongside most robots.

    I would love the entire cast of Masterforce as action figures in their armored suits. All of them 5 - 6 inches tall with the 3 Decepticon Pretenders standing 8 - 9 inches tall.

    If they were released as Headmasters, Targetmasters, or Powermasters, I’d buy them. If they were released as figures that could fit into Autobot and Decepticon vehicle modes, I’d say maybe. Although it would be fun to have larger out of scale humans to terrorize an Autobot base with. Ah, the photo comics I could make...

    I'd only be interested in some of the minor human characters and I'd want them as dianauts. Two things Hasbro won't do.

    Yes. Completely ignoring scale. I want detail, articulation and show accuracy. And actual faces. And limbs that don't just fall off.

    If humans were more than bit-part players in G1 then yes, but as it is they just aren't interesting enough for me to want to have figures representing them.
