    I assume the first one is the Movie Optimus/Jetfire 2-pack? I think it was cancelled by Takara.

    There were never G1 or Classics Arcee toys, or a Classics Shockwave. Unless you mean the Titanium ones, in which case they were never released because the Titanium toyline was ended.

    But Armada Smokescreen and Classics/Universe Cosmos were released, so I don't know what you mean with those two.

    Vgr Jet Prime - Cancelled by Takara
    G1 Arcee - was confirmed at Botcon to be TF: Prime Arcee, which was to be originally released in the Generations line
    G1 Unicron - IS being released this fall as an Amazon.com exclusive
    Classics Cosmos - We got Legends Cosmos, but if you are referring to the deluxe-scale one, that was an unrealized Titanium design
    Classics Shockwave - was an unrealized Titanium design
    Classics Arcee - was an unrealized Titanium design
    Armada Smokescreen - Wasn't this released in one of those Universe 1.0 Battle In A Box sets?

    By "Armada Smokescreen", I think the OP means the G1 Smokescreen-colored repaint of Hot Shot that was supposed to be part of a Battle in a Box set with Drench (Armada Wheeljack recolor) that never saw a release.

    I think he means the actual G1 unicron and why they never did a g1 Arcee.

    Cancelled.

    Sometimes no retailer wants toys exclusives ands they cancel them. Which is the sad part of life,

    THEY NEVER CANCEL TUNER MUDFLAP!

    Voyager jet powered prime - canceled
    G1 arcee - never existed
    G1 unicron - Prototypes exist (and two were seen at Botcon 2009), not mass-produced because it looks nothing like what Unicron SHOULD look like (which is Armada Unicron) and I hear it's actually a floppy mess of a figure.
    Classics cosmos - We got the hard-to-find legends-class figure.
    Classics shockwave - Never materialized.
    Classics arcee - I've never heard that we were ever going to get one of these. EVER.
    Armada smokescreen - Never released. Drench was later used as SG Sideswipe in the 2008 Botcon souvenir set.

    There was to be a G1 Arcee to be made out of the Chromedome mold I think. I think someone (Downshift?) on Cybertron.ca even has (or had?) a prototype of that. Could be an original mold too, I just can't remember right now, I'd have to find the thread, I think he posted a picture back then.
