    Something I never noticed until now... while looking through (and trying to organize) my TF instruction sheets I noticed that the 2 Classics I have, well the only 2 I have instructions for, are weird. In the top left-hand corner on all instruction sheets the name of any given TF line is situated underneath the large print Transformer name brand. But in the case of my Classics Starscream and Classics Ramjet, the line printed is "Robots in Disguise"! WTF? Were the first Classics figures actually under the RiD name? I certainly didn't think they were... Any help would be hot.

    I can provide scans if necessary.

    Well, I am a child of G1. I am quite aware that the phrase Robots in Disguise was around from the beginning and long before the toyline of the same name, but shouldn't it say Classics there? Look at any of your instruction sheets, they are line specific. Universe says Universe, Revenge of The Fallen says Revenge of The Fallen etc...

    The line wasn't called "Classics" on it's packaging, as far as the name of the toyline went. It was Transformers: Robots in Disguise.

    "Classics" came from the side of the package where figures were classed as "Classic Deluxe."

    Just don't tell the 'CHUG' crowd that. You'll crash their entire naming convention universe.

    Haha, so officially, there are no such thing as a "Classics" Transformers subline? Cool.

    Nope Classics was never an official name for the line. I don't think the line actually had a name unless it was Transformers Robots in Disguise but then thats opening up a whole new can of worms.

    Not really. "Classics" was always the name used by Hasbro for the line, it just wasn't on the packaging.
