The Want List (18/7/19)

Here's where I keep a track of TransFormers toys and Third Party bits and bobs that I'm interested in laying my hands on... Just a simple list, but hopefully it'll document a few cool purchases... I also keep an Amazon wish list featuring some of these items but, while I know this sort of thing happens for some bloggers (and particularly YouTubers), in all good conscience, I neither expect nor suggest anyone buy these for me (other than, perhaps, close friends and family, for birthday or Christmas presents). It's just another means of tracking the figures and their availability.

Mainline Hasbro TransFormers:
Generations/War for Cybertron Brunt
Generations/War for Cybertron Astrotrain (At this stage, I think Hasbro may as well admit that WfC isn't really a prequel to Generation 1... otherwise, why would Astrotrain transform into a passable Space Shuttle and an actually-quite-good steam train? Even though the back end of the shuttle looks ropy, it's a much better Astrotrain overall than the Classics version)
Generations/War for Cybertron Spinister (maybe - the transformation looks clever, but the colourscheme is typical late-G1 neon nonsense, and I'd rather not feel compelled to pick up his TargetMasters, which are only available with the 'Decepticon Phantomstrike Squadron', featuring Tetrajet Skywarp...)
Generations/War for Cybertron Bluestreak (maybe - since he appears not to have any battle damage or Cybertronian text on him, he just looks like a concept car... and since I'm not entirely happy with my Classics Bluestreak due to some QC issues, perhaps I'll cave in and get him)
Generations/War for Cybertron Refraktor Reconnaissance Team (maybe, but probably not... An interesting SDCC reveal, but not that much better than the standard version... just with a toy-accurate paint job and even more partsforming)
Generations/War for Cybertron Rumble & Ratbat (maybe - the latter looks OK, but the former is a bit chunky unless he's mistransformed in the SDCC photos)

Cyberverse Shadow Striker (if there's a decent, Warrior class version of her)
Cyberverse Scraplet (because it looks rather cute, even if it's completely out of proportion with the rest of the line... it's almost 1:1 scale!)

Cybertron Longrack
Energon Dreadwing

Beast Wars Metals/Transmetals 2 Tigerhawk
Beast Wars Metals/Transmetals 2 Megatron

Mainline Takara Tomy Figures:
TransFormers Adventure Ground Vehicon General Bought (just because!)
Arms Micron (TFPrime) Jet Vehicon General

TransFormers Generations Senator Ratbat

Beast Wars Neo Big Convoy (maybe)

Masterpiece Ratbat (maybe... Not 100% convinced by Badbat now I have it...)
Masterpiece Blackarachnia (I really like the MPBW figures, but they seem a bit brittle and don't really have space for them... Blackarachnia would be a must if it weren't for the silly price tag)
Masterpiece Lio Convoy (hopefully a bit more sturdy than Perfect Effect's Leonidas... but, going by some recent MP figures, particularly the BW ones like Cheetor, Dinobot and Megatron, probably not...)

TransFormers Live Action Movie Figures:
Masterpiece Movie Jazz (looks fantastic, though not sure about the 'break him in half and have his spine trailing from his upper body' feature/accessory...)
Masterpiece Movie Megatron (maybe - I don't really like the CGI design, but this interpretation is leagues better than the original Leader class toy
Studio Series Jetfire Bought (this may now mean I have to get the SS RotF Optimus Prime)
Studio Series Bonecrusher Bought (saves me buying the huge Third Party version!)
Studio Series Arcee Triplets (revealed in a leak of some kind... it'll either be the original two RotF molds plus the missing one, or something entirely new... I'm hoping for the latter)
Studio Series Rampage (revealed at MCM London Comic Con Oct18)
Studio Series Long Haul (revealed at MCM London Comic Con Oct18)
Studio Series Scrap Metal (revealed at MCM London Comic Con Oct18)
Studio Series Hightower (not great-looking as a standalone figure perhaps, but I'd really like to get the complete SS Devastator!)
Studio Series car mode Dropkick (will probably skip the helicopter version now the car mode version has been revealed)
Studio Series Jetwing Optimus Prime (maybe - more likely if it's compatible with Jetfire as the 'Jetwing' parts look crummy and hollow... but the trailer looks neat)
Studio Series helicopter mode Drift (looks like a partial - and clever - retool of chopper Dropkick)
Studio Series Soundwave (revealed in the same leak as the Arcee Triplets... Interested to know more about this one!)
Studio Series Blitzwing (a toy hasn't been announced yet, but fingers crossed...)

Misc Exclusives/Special Releases:
TFCC BotCon 2009 Scourge
TransFormers Cloud Hellwarp
TransFormers Cloud Starscream (maybe - particularly as the concept may be coincidentally similar to the Bumblebee movie version of Blitzwing)
Generations Selects Star Convoy (even though it's not everything it could/should be - I quite like the refitted cab figure with it's G1 toy style head sculpt)
TransFormers Movie Advanced Wheeljack

'Holy Grail' Figures:
TFCC BotCon 2006 Darksyde Megatron (appeared on eBay during late 2016 for the frankly insane price of $1,300, eventually sold for a just as loony $1,000. Also seen for €1,100 Euros, which is still nuts)
Encore/G1 Sky Lynx (because CW Sky Lynx just isn't quite right, and I like motorized features!)
Beast Wars Ikard & Tako Tank (actually not that difficult to find for a reasonable cost, I just don't have room for it right now...)
Beast Wars II Galvatron Color Lio Convoy (super-unlikely considering only 50 were made)

Third Party Transforming Robot Figures:
DX9/Unique Toys K3 La Hire (having read some truly scary things about TFEVO's Hot Fire, I've decided to go for the other Third Party Hot Rod instead - if Unique Toys' Peru Kill is anything to go by, La Hire is likely to be much sturdier)
Perfect Effect PE-DX-10 Jetforce Revive Commander (an interesting blend of their Ginrai Prime figure and movieverse-stylings, with a trailer that turns into his Jetwing kit from RotF/DotM)
Toyworld Movie Series WWII Bumblebee
Toyworld Movie Series WWII Starscream (assuming it's not a build-a-figure within this line)
Big Firebird BFB EX01 Nicee (controversial design, but looks right up my street)
Big Firebird Windblade (another controversial design, but it makes interesting use of her jet wings in vehicle mode)
FansHobby MB-12 Athena ('cos I've always wanted a Minerva)
FansHobby MB-15 Armada Optimus Prime-analogue (unless TakaraTomy/Hasbro get theirs out first)
Iron Factory IF-G01 Starwing (possibly - I'd rather a single figure with replacement armour parts - a la Armour Girls Project/Frame Arms Girl/Megami Device - rather than two separate, complete figures... and it's not clear at this point of Starwing will even be articulated. If not, I won't bother)
Mastermind Creations R-09 Eupatorium (if the price is right...)
WeiJiang 'Robot Force' M05 customised Blackout (assuming the issues with build quality - breaking clips, etc. - are sorted)
WeiJiang 'Robot Force' M02 customised Hound (because the KuBianBao version was actually a bit disappointing)
This 3D Printed Thing of Beauty. I can only hope it gets mass produced at some point!

Third Party Accessories:
Perfect Effect PC-15, PC-16 & PC-18 upgrade kits for TF Legends Super Ginrai Bought
Dr Wu DW-M08 Judgement weapons for TLK Optimus Prime Bought (on a whim)
Beezleboss BLZ-06 Iron Lady weapons set Bought
DNA Design DK-06 upgrade set for Studio Series Grimlock Bought
DNA Design DK-10 upgrade set for Studio Series Ironhide Bought
DNA Design DK-11 upgrade set for Studio Series Jetfire
Fans Want It Alien Jet Engine Kit
FansProject TFX-ABT-01 Gas Tank Upgrade Kit

Third Party Other:
Flame Toys' Furai Model Kit Windblade (maybe - I know this goes against my dislike of non-transforming TransFormers, but it looks like it could be gorgeous...)
