    So, I know a number of these toys have recently been released in the Encore line, but for the toys specific 25th anniversary we have seen:

    Optimus Prime
    Leo Prime
    Starscream
    Soundwave
    Perceptor
    Insecticons
    Powerglide
    Superion
    Bruticus
    Universe 2.0




    Am I missing some? Do you think this is a suitable anniversary set? Are there specific ones, that you feel are definitely missing?

    Technically, Energon toyline had a boatload of homages, so that counts.

    Plus, most of the distribution sucked this year. So, only the exclusives were available almost everywhere while the mainline toys weren't.

    I barely saw Cyclonus in store yet always found some Darkwings shelfwarming.

    By this logic we're also allowed to include the loads of Animated and ROTF homages that came out this year.

    2004 had terrible distribution too. Remember the drought? Some toys like Shockblast took FOREVER to show up, and others were barely even seen at all like Universe Swerve, and E-Dreadwing, Grimlock/Swoop, etc.

    Weren't the two packs 25th? The Dirge/Roadbuster & Ratbat/Springer Target exclusives?

    They were Universe, but they were still part of the 2008 product line. Releases meant for 2009 had the 25th foil thingy in the corner.
