    With all the surprises with Generations/rts recently

    What g1 figures hasn't Hasbro tackled that they should?

    More Classic Dinobots?
    Blitzwing?
    Sixshot maybe?

    With Generations knocking them out of the park who else is up to bat?

    I suppose characters that aren't from G1? Maybe remake some old Armada toys (they need an upgrade!) Some more WFC hopefully. I doubt more Animated figures, but it sure would be cool to see.

    Or maybe just go with making more and more obscure G1 characters. I'm a sucker for obscure characters.....

    Thundercracker & Trailbreaker come to mind.

    Reflector would be awesome as well!

    Assuming that Generations does indeed end before DotM starts up, and if it does end that another Classics styled line starts up later on, here's what I'd like to see:

    G1/G2 themed:
    -Trailbreaker- repaint of X-Brawn, using the alternate head-sculpt.
    -Thundercracker- repaint of Classics Starscream, in his G2 color scheme.

    RID themed:
    -Prowl- new, deluxe-class mold. alternate head-sculpt ready for a repaint.
    -X-Brawn- new, deluxe-class mold. alternate head-sculpt ready for a repaint.
    -Daytonus- repaint of the Wheeljack tooling of the Tracks/Wheeljack mold.
    -Dark Scream- repaint of Energon Starscream. new head and weapons if possible.
    -Gas Skunk- repaint of Energon Downshift. new head and logo if possible.
    -Slapper- repaint of Energon Barricade. new head if possible.

    Perceptor is getting repainted/retooled as Reflector.

    Does it count if my speculation is that there isn't going to be a fourth line of "Classics"?

    Lets try moving away from G1. Fans of that series has been treated to good for too long. There are other fans out there, BW Dinobot entering the hall of fame shows that.

    I rather get new Beast Wars figures. New Terrorsaur, Airazor, Rattrap, and Blackarachnia figures for deluxe sixe.

    New Optimus Primal and Megatron figures in the voyager size. New BW Dinobot, Rampage, Depth Charge, and Tigerhawk in that size as well. Perhaps even a Transmetal Megatron figure as well, since so many of the Hasbro version had issues.

    Then with Beast Machines, that needs alot of work. The Maximals needs to be in the right sizes and look like the show version. The Vehicons also needs that work.

    Then do other series as well, some of the RID figures were modern bricks. Lets update them and other figures.

    I'm on the Beast Wars train. There is a lot of potential for updated figures from the BW line. Updated Rattrap? Yes please.

    The current "classics" stuff isn't even done yet. Kinda hard to speculate about a "4.0" when we don't even know what might still be on it's way in the current line(s).

    Yeah, but think of it this way. This is stuff people want to see still in this line as well.

    Okay, I can play along those lines. I'll try to keep things within reasonable confines (no Ultras and up, for example).

    Voyager
    Triple-Changer Springer: I know the design was cancelled, but I just liked the RAH-66 Comanche so much. No clue about the other mode.

    Shockwave: Megatron = Nerf gun. Shockwave = Super Soaker. Both Hasbro properties.


    Deluxe
    Triple-Changer Blitzwing: MiG 35, T-90 tank to keep with the Russian-made alt modes.

    Beachcomber: I'll find a beach buggy. Tough finding one that's not by VW.

    Brawn/Outback: Toyota FJ Cruiser.

    Warpath: A... tank. (?)

    Cosmos: I'll go for just an up-sizing of the Legends figure, with all the articulation of a Deluxe of course.

    Trailbreaker/Hoist: Toyota A-BAT, I brought this up as Kup's alt mode before, but since his is of an older truck...

    Gears/Swerve: Some kind of compact or midsize SUV. Not 100% accurate to his G1 alt mode, but something smaller works better for the character, I think.

    Huffer/Pipes: Navistar E Star commercial delivery truck.

    Skids: Honda Fit. I'll take nothing less.

    Sludge, Snarl, Slag, and Swoop.

    And finally, a Cyclonus retool into Devcon

    Scout
    Wheelie: Yeah, yeah... He can be a Smart car or something.

    I hope they continue once they get the main cast finished. I love seeing characters like Bludgeon, Axor, Skullgrin, and Thunderwing. Unfortunately, it seems Botcon is the only way to get the really obscure ones like Clench, Skyquake, Thunderclash, Pyro, and Leozack. Let's hope for characters like Mainframe, Cloudburst, Vroom, and Jackpot.
