    A lot of the classics/universe/generations/RTS/pelican/CHUG toys are pretty slick, capturing the essence of the G1 characters to an almost perfect reimaging. Yet there are a few that, IMHO, kinda missed. If you could have any of them redone to be just overall better, which ones would you pick?

    Personally, I think that Ironhide/Ratchet could be alot better. Was just transforming my Ironhide and realized that while cool, he could be done much better. Anyone else have one you wish was just different?

    Ironhide, at the very least, deserves a reissue with a silver face.

    Galvatron as a new voyager mold would be great, too.

    Galvatron needs a REAL damn figure period. Voyager would instantly be a sell out success.

    Galvatron, Ironhide & Ratchet. I don't really like Astrotrain or Tankor either.

    RODIMUS and Galvatron formost, I'd also like to see a new Bee, a new seeker mold, and a new voyager prime

    Lay off the Ironhide mold. I like it and I think it gets more criticism than it deserves. Galvatron I can agree upon, as well as Octane who deserves to have his proper name instead of the retarded Tankor. I wouldn't mind seeing a scaled-down MP Rodimus either.

    I would be all for this, but I doubt Hasbro would do it. It's too much of a risk.

    No, absolutely not. It would sell just as much as a normal figure. Maybe it would be more popular amongst the fans, but that would be it. And the deluxe is a "REAL figure". It's just that you don't seem to like it.

    There's probably a good half of them I'm not fully satisfied with, but yeah Galvatron is the most pressing case for a redo.

    The Ironhide/Ratchet mold isn't great, but for the sake of variety I'd rather a WFC Ratchet/Ironhide than a redo.

    I also think they could redo Voyager Optimus. I have no great need for another Optimus, but it was never that great a mold to begin with, and it always makes commercial sense to do another Optimus.

    Voyager Galvatron would be nice, but I very much doubt we'll get him any time soon. Ironhide/Ratchet mold is needlessly complicated but isn't that bad per se (except all the panels in vehicle mode).

    The deluxe Galvatron needs to be upscaled to voyager.

    Voyager Galvatron, or even a new G2 Megatron as an update to the Classics 2-pack version (which isn't bad, but a remake would be awesome). Ironhide is in definite need of an update as well.

    What about a new Ultra Magnus? One that resembles the Titanium version... except not as sucky. Sure, City Commander is out, but many fans still don't have it and I'm sure they're craving for a retail alternative.

    Voyager Galv would rock, but I'd take a more G1 accurate deluxe in a heartbeat as well. Tankatron doesn't do it for me. His robot mode is hideous. I also would buy a Prowl retooled from RTS Jazz.

    Galvatron would be excellent. Ultra Magnus is worthy of a new mold rather than being a repaint also.

    I think the original Prowl with paint that doesnt get sticky would be pretty sweet too

    A real Galvatron, that doesn't get its size changed after the design has been finalized would be nice. Ironhide & Ratchet could be better, and an actual G2 Megatron that is based on the regular & "hero" toys from G2 would be fine as a deluxe.

    Galvatron would be the one to benefit from this. A voyager class would've done wonders for that mold, with extra joints and clips.
