    I’ve been (prolificly) collecting for 18 months now, and with all my purchases and paid-for pre-orders, I’ve ticked off over 75% of my “wants” list. Looking at what was left, I know I’ll never get 100%, as some of the characters I’m after are too insignificant to warrant a figure of their own, but I’m hoping 90% isn’t unattainable. My wishlist is below. What’s yours? And don’t tell me you haven’t got one. ;) 

    Announced and will pre-order when they come up:
    MMC – Drift, Rumble and the inevitable Frenzy
    DNA – Bludgeon
    Jei Wiang – oversized Toyworld Throttlebots Freeway and Wideload
    BB7 – Ion Storm and Nova Storm
    Transformmission – Motormaster
    Gigapower – Sludge, Swoop and Grimlock (Metallic)

    Still undecided:
    MMC – Lazerbeak and the inevitable Buzzsaw… I know they’ll be good, but whereas Ravage, Rumble and Frenzy needed upscaling to look right on the shelf, I feel MP Lazerbeak and Buzzsaw work fine at the size they are, as does KFC’s Badbat… so I’ll have to wait until I’ve seen reviews.

    Omega Supreme – Still waiting to see more renders from Gigapower, as if I commit to one, that’s likely the route I’ll go rather than Fanstoys… but my bigger issue is the sheer size of him. I honestly don’t know where I’d put him. I use detolfs, which he will clearly be too big and heavy for, so the only place I can think of is the floor, but then he’s not part of the display. The sheer size of this one may prevent a purchase… at least for a while.

    HasTak – Scrounge. I like him (I always loved the Generations Cosmos he’s based on), even though he’s not in any way accurate to his comic appearance… but I don’t want the rest of the Technobots you need to get as part of the set he’s with… and I don’t appreciate the price gouging people are trying on Ebay to get him by himself. He’s a 10/20 quid figure at best (a remold no less), so I’m not going to spend 50 to 80 quid on him. Now he’s got an official release though, I hope it may pave the way for a 3rd party to take interest at some point.

    No announcements whatsoever – MP scale
    There are now only a handful of MP scale figures left that I’d like to see, that haven’t had anything hinted at so far:
    Battletrap
    Flywheels
    Macabre (highly unlikely, I know)
    Runabout
    Runamuck
    Skids
    Sky Lynx

    I’ve got KFC’s Eject, Ramhorn, Rewind and Steeljaw, but now that MMC/Ocular Max have started on their oversized cassettes, I’m hoping that once they finish the Decepticons, they’ll do the Autobots

    I’ve got Generations Straxus, but really he’s just a placeholder… and the more MP style Decepticons fill out my ranks, the more ridiculous he looks. I really hope someone will take a stab at a MP version of him. His angular appearance would really suit Fanstoys or Badcube.

    I’ve got Fansprojects Barrage, Chopshop and Ransack and they’ll do if nothing else come out (although the missing Venom is annoying), but it would be nice for one of the big boys to take a stab. I’ve got the Fanstoys Insecticons, so wishful thinking is that at some point they’ll finish the line.

    I also wouldn’t mind a comic style MP Scorponok, taller than MP10, which doesn’t have to bother with the battle station transformation or headmaster gimmick… but if that never happens I won’t be that fussed.

    No announcements whatsoever – Voyager scale
    Mainly for my Wreckers (and affiliates) display, there are now only a few empty slots to fill:
    Carnivac (Both for my Wreckers display or a Mayhem Attack Squad)
    Emirate Xaaron
    Inferno
    Leadfoot
    Pyro
    Rack’N’Ruin

    I’d also like a Mayhem Attack squad in Voyager scale as counterpoints to my Wreckers, but so far only three members have been released/announced (Bludgeon, Catilla and Chopshop) and they are all at differing scales (Only MMC’s Catilla is correct)… plus most of the members are later Generation 1 figures, and therefore less popular… so if nothing happens here, that’ll have to
    Needlenose
    Octopunch
    Roadblock
    Ruckus
    Snarler
    Spinister
    Stranglehold
    Venom (Either to round out my Deluxe Insecticons as they are or for a Mayhem Attack Squad)
    Windsweeper

    What I need now:
    For my preorder of MMC's take of Tarn, Strika, and Obsidian to be shipped to me as soon as possible.

    Future wants:
    Anything original, unique, or hardly used in other Transformers media. More Fall of Cybertron stuff? IDW? Post G1 series? If the price is in my reasonable range, I'll be interested in stuff like that over another a 3rd Party G1 MP figure.

    Trigger Happy and Slugslinger

    Then I'm officially done

    My MP collection is about complete.

    Arcee, Kup, Springer and Cyclonus. Once those are in-hand, I could give two shits if anything G1/MP related is ever released again.

    I may "sprinkle" some odds and ends into the collection now and again, but those will make my collection "complete."


    As for voyager/large "chug" IDW figures .... give me the entire cast. I want them all.

    For MP, the only things I really need are a decent Cliffjumper and a Jazz. I have J4ZZ and won't be parting ways with it, but would like a g1 MP Jazz. I would also like to see someone take a crack at a better Bumblebee, improve the headsculpt and hollow forearms.

    CHUG, IDW, and modern takes on characters I'll keep buying as long as they're cool. I loved Spartan, perfect IDW Impactor for me. Striker Manus is awesome and I can't wait for Rioter Despotron.

    HasTak has really impressed me with CW and TR. I can't believe I like TR, I was never really that into headmasters. They just need to get over the hollow forearm fetish.

    I rotate one display and store or sell off stuff so I'm not bored or overloaded. With my personal display and collecting habits I'll always be buying, MP is just slowing down for me.

    I'm looking to finish up an MP Ark crew. MMC Terragis, MT Downbeat, XTB Cliffjumper, BC Grump.
    My Nemesis crew(+Shockwave) was completed with the arrival of Spotter/Reflector a few weeks ago.
    After that I may get whatever G1 Masterpiece comes along from Takara, but other than That I'm done.

    I don't need anything, but I'd love to add these to my collection one day :D :

    Already announced/exist:
    MP Megatron
    MP Skywarp or KBB Skywarp
    MMC Kultur/ Tarn
    MMC Caldius/ MTMTE Rodimus
    MMC Nero Rex

    Pipe dream:
    MP Blitzwing
    MP Astrotrain
    MP Cliffjumper
    MP Jazz
    MP Sunstreaker
    Titan-class Sky Lynx
    Titan-class Tidal Wave
    Deluxe-class Slugslinger
    Voyager-class Apeface

    Getaway - done by MMC or Maketoys

    I'm hopeful to own all the MPs I listed, Tarn and MTMTE Rodimus one day, but I know I'll never own a Nero Rex due to cost. The rest will probably just never be made.:(

    Figures I hope are done are:

    MMC
    • Scavengers
    • IDW Dai Atlas
    • IDW Orion Pax/ Optimus Prime ( Shadowplay Frame for Orion Pax and I'd prefer if it was Andrew Griffiths design from Season 2 exRID for Optimus)
    • IDW Siren
    • IDW Sunder
    • IDW Nautica
    • IDW Senator Shockwave (yeah yeah i know fat chance but I can dream)
    • Basicly everyone from IDW
    Planet X
    • WFC Arcee (Maybe with an additional IDW Head)
    • WFC Autobot Aerialbots (Jetfire, Sliverbolt and Air Raid)
    • FOC Combaticons
    • FOC Shockwave
    • WFC Bumblebee
    • Megatron (Both would be nice)
    • WFC Optimus Prime
    • WFC Zeta Prime
    • WFC Prowl + Smokescreen and Bluestreak (But using the unused WFC Bluestreak concept art)
    • FOC Springer
    • WFC Sideswipe
    • Everyone from WFC/ FOC
    They are who I want really doing but who knows what the future brings. Some of it probably will become a reality at some point.

    I have no specific characters that I want. If I see a toy that looks sweet, I'll get it, but that's a decision driven by the toy, not by the character.
    I was not a Transformers fan as a child, I am not into this for nostalgia or memberberries. I like cool toys.
    I had no idea who Tarn is and still don't, but that is a toy I want. I didn't get Hellfire because I love the character Inferno - it's just a really cool toy and a TF that turns into a firetruck is poretty iconic.
    Yes, there are designs that I love like Octopunch and Bludgeon and Scorpinok, but that doesn't determine what toys I'll get.

    Afteryears of collecting classics, customs and third party my collection feels almost complete, especially with Hasbro Trypticon coming next year. Still have to get

    TFC Poseidon (Piranacon)
    TFC Trinity Force (Road Caesar)
    a Deathcobra to go with TFC's Hades
    Fansproject Dinogo and Dinoroku to complete my set (took them so long to release the legs)
    Fansproject Monstructor (if they ever get around to him)
    Fansproject Apeface and Snapdragon if they can make them before Hasbro/Takara
    Either Toyworld or XTransbots Cosmos, waiting on reviews before deciding.
    Fanstoys Seaspray
    I'm waffling on MMC Carnifex, waiting to see what the upcoming leader Hasbro/Takara will look like.

    Can somebody - 3rd party or official make these?

    Autobot Spike
    Omnibots
    Insecticon Venom to go with the Fansproject Deluxe Insecticons
    Rotorstorm
    Rack n' Ruin
    Stalker and the rest of the Predators
    Raiden
    Blue Bacchus
    Landcross
    Grandus
    new BW Terrorsaur
    BM Botanica
    I've also always wanted a plastic representation of the TORQ III computer from the episode "Day of the Machines" of the G1 cartoon

    I assume my list is like everyone else's: COLLECT ALL THE G1 SEASON 1-3 characters. Except I'm stopping at season 2 because I'm not into season 3 guys (such as Hot Rod, Ultra Magnus, Springer, and Wheelie. I love Kup though as my single standout.)

    With that said, I really hope for a Takara Trailbreaker, Mirage, Hound, Jazz, Sunstreaker, Hoist, Skids, Windcharger, Huff, Brawn, Cliffjumper, and Gears.

    If TT doesn't make most of those, I just hope they make a Sunstreaker, Mirage, Trailbreaker, and Cliffjumper. The rest I'm happy with the 3P's like Gundog and Downbeat.

    I'm waiting for everything else in pre-order like Grinder and Cesium to finish my Dinobots collection. Waiting for ToyWorld Coneheads. And all the mini-bots like Cosmos, Seaspray, etc.

    Other than that, I love IDW, so I'll collect those continually like the DJD, Lost Light characters (yes, I love that Hot Rod and Autobot Megatron) from the MMC Reformatted line.

    More CHUG. More CHUG in general. So long as it fits my size and aesthetic preferences, I'll accept it into my collection.

    Specifically, I'm waiting on DNA Susanoo, MasterMade Destroy Scorpion, and almost anything Maketoys comes out with in their Cross Dimension line.

    Aside from that, I have my eye on MMC's Oberon and Titanika. Oh, and Fansproject Pinchar since I need a complete set of Dinobots.

    I use the term need loosely, but in order to satiate my OCD personality disorder, I need to:

    Complete the Ark crew: Jazz, Cliffjumper, Windcharger, Braun, etc

    Grinder, because I bought the other dibots and now not finishing it would just be silly

    Omega Supreme, because he is my favorite, even though I have genesis, I will get the Titan Omega and the Fanstoys

    Skyfire, from fans toys.

    MP Megatron even though I have Apollyon, because I have a deep seated fear of missing out on life

    Wants: But being patient
    Poseidon

    Wants, but have no rational business buying:
    Pandinus, Utopia, WFC Trypticon,

    Maybe Wants, twist my arm because I'm a sucker for deals:
    KO MP Inferno, because I just know it will come
    KO cone heads, or Toyworld cone heads or hasbro cone heads at TRU because if they are that cheap, I can't resist
    Cosmos because he's there and he's affordable
    KO MP Hot rod
    Reflectors at the right black friday price
