    Seeing the Generations Thundercracker in pictures and in hand, it got me wondering on something.

    I know a lot of collectors have probably got Classics Skywarp if they started collecting the line early enough, but I know there are a number that probably don't as well.

    Hasbro released a new Starscream in the Universe line that was closer to the G1 Starscream in appearance compared to the Classics one and with the Generations Thundercracker...

    I guess what I'm getting at is... Would fans like to get a new Skywarp that is in the G1 Skywarp's color scheme and design?

    Thundercracker is a great homage to the G1 toy and Starscream from Universe is close to his G1 self. But would people like the G1 Skywarp look?

    Obviously he's still black and silver, but the purple on G1 is more lilac or lavender obviously.

    I would be onboard for it myself, but that's also because I used to own the G1 original, but also own the Classics release. What say the rest of you?

    I'd be all for it, in light of the fact that I missed out on Classics Skywarp and have never owned a Skywarp toy.

    I'd love a straight-up rerelease of the original "Battle for Autobot City" set. There are many who did not get the Ultra Magnus repaint as well.

    Ah, only if people had known that Fansproject would have shown up with their landmark City Commander upgrade set years later, things would have been MUCH different.

    This. A rereleased Ramjet would be cool, too.

    Did they ever re-issue that mold as Prime after its initial Classics release?

    I'd like to see that out again too. It makes sense, Classics was 5 years ago at this point, and pre-movie, so there are a lot less out there. Once they run out of characters to re-make I would love to see them put out some of the older popular toys again. Mirage, Hound, Starscream, Ramjet, etc.

    I'd rather they make Sunstorm first since he hasn't even seen a first release.

    I'm thinking that if they have not retired this mold after Generations Thundercracker, Sunstorm would probably be the last use of it.

    I have both the original classic Skywarp and the Henkei but I'd buy a third!
    Armybuilding seekers is what I do.

    Nope. A new Skywarp would just have the boring old G1 deco instead of the cool patterns on the alt mode that the Classics version had. We've gotten all six Seekers now, so I think it's time to just let the mold retire.

    Where do I Pay for this?; he's the only one that I need now since my wife just got me Generations TC 
    I'd love a chance of getting my three Seekers from the same line; now if they hurry up and re-release Ramjet (and release Sunstorm; but that'd be crazy right?) 

    Magnus and Skywarp did shelfwarm.

    But the brands profile is up since then and hasbro are showing an increased in
    The subline.

    I think the demand is probably there.
