    Since they already made an Ultra-Class non-combiner Onslaught in Universe 2.0, would you want to see Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, and Blast-Off as non-combiner Deluxe-Class toys in the future?

    I'm more than happy with my Universe Bruticus Maximus/Crossfire set.

    I don't mind if they don't combine. It gives more attention to the individual. I'd love to see a new Swindle.

    However, I'd rather see Movie Wildrider and Motormaster to finish of the Movie Stunticons. We already have Dead End, Breakdown, and Drag Strip.

    Yes, definitely.

    If you consider the upcoming Vortex a crossover-type mold that can fit into Classics, than that's two down. I know Hound is different aesthetically than Swindle...but Hasbro or Takara have yet to use the mold again (only FunPub), so it would serve as a convenient way to get a new Swindle with a new head and maybe a new weapon. Brawl would be awesome as a deluxe or voyager. Blast Off is the only tricky one where I'm not sure if Hasbro would do...but if they did release the others, they may as well do Blast Off too like they did with the six Seekers.

    I'd love it of they rounded out the Stunticons too.

    This x 1,000.

    I own onslaught, and I legit despise the head sculpt. I don't even know what Hasbro was thinking with it since it was a new mold at the time. Vortex I'll buy, but honestly, the Universe combiners will be my classics updates by association. I'm good on these one-offs whether they happen or not.

    Definitely wouldn't mind a new Swindle and Brawl mold. We are already getting Vortex (though isn't he in the DOTM line?) but frankly Blastoff has never interested me, either the character or his toys..

    If Swindle were a Hound retool, and Brawl a retool of Warpath, I could live with that.

    I loves me the Combaticons and FP Bruticus / Crossfire Colossus.

    Making Onslaught a SWAT armored vehicle was a bit of a creative touch but not sure about it being an Ultra class figure so I currently don't own it. DOTM Vortex stands in so well as a Classics figure I wouldn't be surprised if he gets an American release somewhere down the line as a Generations figure too.

    Swindle definitely deserves his own Classics figure (the movie Swindle toy was just appalling with its red sports car alt mode and ugly cyclops head bot mode - no resemblance to the character at all) and I can see how a Hound retool could work very well. Brawl is a no-brainer, perhaps with a slight retool of the Warpath mold so the tank turret ends up on his back instead of being his torso (much like a nice Radicons custom of this recently).

    Blast Off is tricky. Perhaps they could retool the Astrotrain mold somehow to fudge the train mode and just give us the shuttle mode only instead, although the two characters' transformations and designs have traditionally been opposite of each other (Astrotrain having the nosecone as his feet and wings on his back; Blast Off with the engines and wings as at his lower legs and a flip-up nosecone backpack).

    Good god yes I want the rest of the Combaticons.
    My favorite combiner team (not that I care about the combiner aspect that much but the team/characters).
    I am going to have to get my hands on a Japanese Vortex. Universe2.0 Hound with a new head and new weapons as Swindle and maybe Classics Astrotrain with a new head as Blast Off.
    Brawl I don't know. I guess I could live with a Warpath retool but would prefer the turret to end up on his back.

    I think a WFC Brawn would be FANTASTIC.

    Yeah, I'd like some Classics Combaticons that don't combine. I've got the FP Munitioner and Explorer set, but those won't come out of the combined mode very often.

    Ya know... I've gotta' change my stance a bit.

    If they could make all of these standalones the homage quality of the Universe Silverbolt figure, then I'd be more than for it.

    But WTFs like Onslaught and RTS Strafe: I'm good.

    Swindle, please. All the other Combaticons suck eggs compared to him.
