Now I know they already make candy toy model kits and these meh models that are mostly prebuilt (pic related), but what if Takara/Hasbro started a line of high quality model kits to sort of compete with Bandai? You could have Grades based on diferent classes (Deluxe Grade, Mega Grade, Ultra Grade), and there would be a nice market for them. Paint wouldn't be too big an issue, as higher quality kits have less need for paint, and a lot of tranformers these days lack paint apps anyways. You would get rid of exposed screw holes and hollow parts, and they could even start by making modern versions of G1 characters, and expand to other series (similar to Generations). Just a though.
