    Hey All,

    I am pretty aware of most Classics well known and third party figures, but there are some exclusive figures I may have missed. Is there an easy list of these exclusives?

    For instance, this is what I have so far:
    - Alpha Trion
    - Punch - Counter Punch
    - Runabout
    - Runamuck

    Any others?

    Assuming you mean club exclusives, then Alpha Trion technically isn't "classics", he's Shattered Glass, but lots of people use him for Classics..

    Also there's figures from the Botcon 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2011 sets that have figures that could be considered "classics".

    Oh, and the club Seacons and Nightbeat.

    Alpha Trion wasn't Shattered Glass, he was part of the games of deception set, a year or 2 earlier than shattered glass, 2007

    Although, SG A3 shows up as early as 2007 (I think) in Transcendent, so it's not inconceivable that Botcon A3 is that one.

    But he was re-purposed into Shattered Glass by the Club comics the next year:

    SG Alpha Trion

    As his bio card made no mention of this, he kinda exists in a grey area where people could justifiably use him for either version. And they do!

    Keep in mind that that list excludes molds that were in a line prior to Classics, so some Classics characters like Huffer and Springer, etc. are excluded, so it's not a complete "official" classics checklist.

    I think the original intent was to have him be Balancing Act Alpha Trion and Beta Maxx an up graded Over-Run.

    Oddly enough, that's how I use him. He's on my AEC shelves.

    But that toys first fictional appearance is Shattered Glass A3.

    I'd argue that it is complete. Springer is a re-purposed (ie. straight repaint) of a Cybertron mold. I think any 'Classics' purists is desiring a new mold in the Classics style for Springer and Huffer. To me, if there is a 'key' that comes with a figure it's a Cybertron figure.

    That's your opinion, but it isn't fact, please stop acting like it is.

    In which case he said "I'd argue" that it was complete. Again, stating his opinion and not fact.

    Anybody can make a list, but so far nobody but TBM has stepped up and gone to the huge effort. If you read through the thread you'll see that TBM states what his criteria is with a little fudge factor and is actively asking for and taking advice on where to draw the line and when to move it.

    EDIT: But to diffuse the tension, what Thundershot pointed out is true, TBM's list is not a "official" classics checklist as no such thing can exist. However, it's a damn fine resource.
