    I'm going to assume the "Classics" is really the G1 redone line mentioned at Botcon 2005.

    I would like to see the Dinobots (the Energon Dinobots weren't bad but come on the combined mode was :confused2  )and some combiners in this new line.

    What do you want?

    Decepticon Jets
    Pistol Megs
    Dinobots
    STUNTICONS! (that combine too)
    Triple Changers like Blitzwing

    Pretty much anything really.

    Dinobots
    Skyfire(show acurate as possible)
    Various combiners(mainly tecno-bots and stunticons)
    All 6 seekers, one mould
    Prime and Megs in the same size class and being the same size, no shitty add on armor.
    Arcee

    If I get a couple of those I'll be a happy nerd.

    Well, ignoring whatever, the amount of toys we actually will get, I'm just going to post characters I'd like to see:

    Autobots:
    Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee
    Cliffjumper
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Prowl
    Bluestreak
    Sky/Jetfire (show accurate with flip-down faceplate to recreate toy's head)
    Sideswipe
    Sunstreaker
    Ultra Magnus
    Jazz
    Wheeljack
    Mirage
    Hound

    Decepticons:
    Megatron
    Shockwave
    Soundwave & Laserbeak
    Rumble & Frenzy
    Buzzsaw & Ravage
    Reflector
    Starscream
    Thundercracker
    Skywarp
    Scrapper
    Hook
    Longhaul
    Mixmaster
    Scavenger
    Bonecrusher

    Change names where needed due to copyright issues. Jazz, for instance, could be called Meister.

    All I want is Hot Rod. That's all I ask for. Robot Masters didn't have one, Alternators doesn't have one, this could be my only chance to get a new figure of G1 Hot Rod. That is all I want out of the Neo G1 line. Anything else is just a bonus.

    Any Characters Pre Movie, done well. Colors, name, general alt mode respective to the original. There isn't much more I want from Transformers period actually :)

    Ebay:
    A highly flammable Wheelie toy that comes with a small stake to tie him to. It should have a built in sound effect, namely a convincing scream.

    A Bumblebee that almost resembles a VW, but not enough to get sued. ;) 

    A fully articulated Rodimus Prime that is actually BIG. I remember my 9 year old self got very frustrated about being unable to successfully re-enact the "Arise, Rodimus Prime" scene because:
    a) I had no Matrix (a bit of pollished green stone stuck to Galvatron's chest with blu-tack made a poor substitute) and;
    b) Rodimus was tiny compared to Galvy, not to mention the fact that all he could do was wave his arms up and down. :( 

    Ahem. Anyway, the other toys I'd love to see are:

    Ratchet and/or Ironhide with actual faces... and actual bodies, now I think about it.

    Rumble and Frenzy as motorbikes (and actual piledrivers.)

    Seeker jets by the truckload, naturally.

    In the main, I'd like to see a line that was more or less to scale (in robot mode) with the BT/Alternators and contained more Decepticons than Autobots. I want to boost the 'con numbers on my shelves: it's so hard for them to look threatening when they're outnumbered more than three to one.

    And even though I don't particularly like the idea of Megatron as a gun, I'm aching for that toy...

    My main wish is the five Dinobots. All as Ultras:D  DON'T MAKE THEM COMBINE FOR GOD'S SAKE, DON'T MAKE THEM COMBINE!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!111!1

    New combining Stunticons would ROCK.

    The Decepticon Jets would be pretty easy, since we know a mold has been seen for Starscream, I think they'd make the obligatory Thundercracker and Skywarp repaints.

    As for deluxe Autobot cars I'd love to see:

    Ironhide
    Prowl
    Jazz
    Sideswipe
    Sunstreaker
    Wheeljack
    Skids (yes, Skids)

    Optimus Prime, complete with trailer, with good articulation, and no damn mutant windshield in alt mode. Seriously. If they just keep the alt mode looking like a real (if somewhat generic) COE, I'll be happy.

    In three reiterations of G1 Prime, we have yet to get one with a good alt mode.

    I'd like him to be either the size of the original, or close to scale (alt mode wise) with the Autobot cars.

    I've got an inordinate craving to have the three main seekers in super-detailed, super-articulated, fully transformable glory, despite not being the biggest of fans of them. It's weird. The other three would be welcome, too, but not required.

    There will be hell to pay if I don't get a super articulated, red Lambo-esque Sideswipe with the hood for the chest before this line ends.

    Well, i don't think we'll be getting much in the way of this line, seeing it's short, but here's what i'd like to see.


    Autobot Deluxes
    Sideswipe
    Sunstreaker
    Wheeljack
    Ironhide
    Hound
    Tracks
    Prowl
    Bumblebee & Gears 2 pack
    Cliffjumper & Brawn 2 pack (repaints)
    Smokescreen (repaint)
    Red Alert (repaint)
    Ratchet (repaint)

    Autobot Ultras

    Optimus Prime
    Skyfire/Jetfire
    Inferno
    Grapple (retool of Inferno)

    Decepticon Deluxes

    Soundwave
    Starscream
    Thundercracker (repaint)
    Skywarp (repaint)
    Drag Strip
    Wild Rider
    Dead End
    Brakedwon
    Rumble and Ravage 2 pack
    Frenzy and Buzzsaw 2 pack (repaint)

    Decepticon Ultras

    Megatron
    Motormaster
    Shockwave



    note: as much as i'd love it, i don't think we'd get a Ultra Starscream, and 2 repaints of it in a filler line, i'd love to get it retooled into the season 2 Seekers as well, but i can't see that happening even with the deluxe mold. And i wrote this list keeping with hasbro's 60:40 ratio of Autobots to Decepticons. Also, due to it being a filler line, i doubt we'd see a gestalt, but if there is one, it'd have to be Decepticon, as they were the ones that utilised it more, and had the technology first.

    Prowl
    Silverstreak
    Smokescreeen
    All 3 being pretty much the same mold with small differences of course with the old scholl/Alt Subaru transformation*spits on Alt/BT Prowl again for ruining the theme, then kicks Hasbro and Takara dicission makers in the nuts*
    Prime of course, but hopefully updated and color looking.
    Soundwave
    Starscream

    Along with everyone else they will probably make if and when this line comes to pass all I want are:

    1. ARCEE
    2. KUP

    I will never make another request again if I get these two resembling their original forms with slight alterations to make them possible.

    Grimlock. No combining, just 100% pure Grimlock.
    Other than that, at least Jazz and Bumblebee for the Autobots (Prime is pretty much a given, right?)
    We already know theres likely to be a Megatron and Screamer (as per the protos shown at Botcon, and if they do a Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker should be no prob.) so the only other Decepticon I absolutely gotta have is Soundwave.
    Anything more would just be icing on the cake.

    I really wonder what they'll come up with for this line. Do you guys think they'll actually put out new molds, given the short time frame?

    I would like to see a lot of the same things you guys have mentioned. I like the idea of a decent Hot Rod and a Rodimus Prime that actually has articulation. Seeker jets seem like a gimme; but I don't see any firearm Megatrons ever happening, unforturnately. I don't forsee many or any of the bots in the line consisting of G1 reissue stuff; I just don't think the kids nowadays would like them, plus, they really are on the fragile side. I think a lot of it depends on how long they want the "filler line" on the shelves. I think the longer the time frame, the better the toys. I don't know. We'll see.

    I made this list a while back, but as it seems like TF Classic is going to start sooner than expected, I've expanded it a little.

    Megas:
    Optimus
    Hot Spot
    Autobase playset (Prime's trailer - sold separate from Prime)
    Megatron
    Soundwave
    Motormaster
    Space Bridge playset (transforms to a train, or shuttle, or something)

    Deluxes:
    Jazz
    Sideswipe (a definite must)
    Sunstreaker
    Prowl
    Hound
    Mirage
    Trailbreaker
    Streetwise
    First Aid
    Groove
    Blades
    Starscream (I'd have preferred this as a mega, but I guess it's a deluxe)
    Thrust (Same size as Starscream)
    Dead End
    Wild Rider
    Breakdown
    Dragstrip


    Supplimental repaints:
    Ironhide/Ratchet (E. Towline)
    Wheeljack (E. Downshift)
    Hot Rodimus (Cyb. Hot Shot - figure the rights to Hot Rod will still be an issue)
    Hoist w/ Powerglide (Supercon Prime)
    Grapple (Cyb Mudflap)
    Smokescreen (Cyb Crosswise)
    Huffer (Cyb Armorhide)
    Brawn (E. Strongarm)
    Shockwave (E. Shockblast - darker purple and no green)
    Skywarp/Thundercracker (G1-Neo Starscream)
    Dirge/Ramjet (G1-Neo Thrust)
    Long Haul (E. Demolisher)
    Scavenger (E. Steamhammer)
    Hook (E. Duststorm)
    Scrapper (E. ...forgot the name, but you all know who I'm talking about)
    Onslaught (E. Barricade)
    Brawl (E. Blight)
    Vortex (E. ...the copter)
    Nemesis (Supreme Starscream in black - if Hasbro can take 'Destructicon' from Anton Max, why not this?)


    Supplimental re-tools (less than 15% change)

    Bonecrusher (retool of E. Blight - swap arm cannons with shovel halves, change the E. weapon so that the cannons form a foldable cab)
    Mixmaster (retool of E. Duststorm, change crane into mixing drum)
    Blast Off (E. ...the F-22 gestalt limb - just remove the Autobrand)
    Swindle (E. ...the A-10 gestalt limb - remove Autobrand - yeah, very different alt mode, but F' it)
    Blue(Silver)streak (G1-Neo Prowl w/o the police lights)
    Inferno (Cyb Mudflap with crane replaced by ladder)
