    --> --> For everyone following this thread the NEW and (hopefully) IMPROVED thread is HERE: <-- <--
    Classics/Henkei - The Definitive List (of NEW molds with 'Classics' styling)






    THIS IS THE OLD LIST (for reference only)

    This list is compiled from a purist stand point. It will only include new moulds that originated in Classics 1.0, 2.0 (and hopefully beyond) and/or figures that Hasbro has indicated were developed with Classics in mind but released under a different label "to get them out there".

    This list will NOT include moulds that originate from previous or other lines (ex. Animated, Energon, Cybertron, etc.) that are repainted and share the label with new Classics figures under a broader "Universe" label. Additionally, accessories from third-party manufacturers for the moulds on this list have been included at the bottom. Debate for inclusion or exclusion of figures is welcomed.

    See this thread for Classics/Henkei comparison shots (started by member Trailbreaker77): Henkei vs Universe Pictorial Comparisons "Warning Lots of Pictures"


    -Obvious repaints not documented (such as Sideswipe/Sunstreaker, Ratchet/Ironhide, etc.)
    -Big Box Store Exclusives (Wal-mart, Target, TRU, etc.) are not documented unless the figure falls outside of the "Classics/Universe" label (such as TFTM, ROTF, etc.)

    Two things:

    1. Technically, there aren't any Ultra class Henkei releases. They're Japanese-released "U.S." versions.

    2. Aveo Swerve isn't part of this line. It in no way references the G1 character Swerve in it's design. The toy was a promo gift to Chevy, and by proxy- GM, for their help with the movie.

    1. I agree, but breaking the categorization methods I used would be confusing. how about instead of "Henkei" for the Ultra Class, I use "Takara"?

    2. I removed Swerve. Though it was difficult for me because I like the thought of him going with Classics. Your point was sound so I guess I'll be putting Swerve with my Movie Collection.

    Good list, WAY more Deluxes than I realised, and less Ultras than I thought.

    I put Aveo Swerve (Red and Yellow) in with my classics shelves as I feel they fit.

    I love what you're doing.

    Oh, and it's "definitive". :) 

    EDIT: Another suggestion, is to include links to sources that point out where Hasbro expressed the intent for certain figures to be part of the Universe/Classics line. If I'm not mistaken, Fracture and two other repaints were also likewise intended.

    Thanks for the input and helping make this list as complete as possible everybody.

    Breakaway & Crankcase were repaints from the Cybertron line. Fracture mold originated from Classics and thus, makes this list.

    I actually spell quite well. Until it come to BIG, red titles. Thanks for the correction. Also, I listed Fracture and other figures that were originally released for the Classics line, but got repainted under a different label (such as: Fracture, Sparkcrusher & Shadow Striker).

    I haven't listed Minicons yet (not as knowledgeable in that department). I'll try and get that up today. Again, I'll only include minicons that were originally released for 'Classics' and not repaints from previous lines (A/E/C in particular).

    I don't view customization class figures as official releases "straight from the factory" if you know what I mean.

    Breakaway and Crankcase, I think it's written somewhere, were intended for Universe... If that makes a difference to you.

    This is an excellent post. I had no idea about the Target Exclusive repaints of the legends class figures! Oh well, more stuff to look out for.

    A link to that quote would help, but this list is really for figures that originate out of the Classics, Classics 2.0 (Universe 2.0) line-up. It's not meant to include repaints of Armada, Energon, Cybertron, Animated, etc. figures that get repaints and then "shoe-horned" in with the new figures to fill out a general 'Universe' line. Really, looking for the new figures that play a specific homage to G1/G2 figures.

    This is EXACTLY why I created this list. I kept missing figures that originated from Classics 1.0 & 2.0, but were being repainted in other lines such as the movie figures, Botcon, OTCC, Henkei.

    If Crankcase isn't going in, why should Bludgeon ? He's from ROTF, not a Classics/Uni fig. He's homaging Bludgeon and Crankcase is a homage to Crankcase.

    He already mentioned why: because Crankcase is a repaint of a Cybertron mold. The same reason why he hasn't listed Blades, Blaster, Dropshot, etc.

    In contrast, ROTF Bludgeon was originally designed for the Classics/Universe line before he was put aside for Universe Galvatron and then given a makeover for ROTF's release.

    That's only there because that's the line he was released in and featured, not the one he was meant for.

    What the heck? Do you honestly believe that? Cybertron Red Alert and Cybertron Hot Shot were released in 2005 as part of the Cybertron line: a full year before Classics was even conceived. Saying that Crankcase and Breakaway's molds were designed for Classics/Universe doesn't make sense because Classics didn't even exist yet.
