    so i'm getting a rotf swerve to repurpose into a classics deadend with the help of reprolabels and i know the odds of a new breakdown are low and dragstrip is not impossible to get but I was thinking that maybe it's time they did non hard to get version of wildrider for the u.s. i would say just retool the drift/blurr mold and there he is, that or the axor mold but i would not be as thrilled. still, any one got any thoughts on the subject?

    I want a set of Classics-styled Stunticons. Drag Strip is lonely.

    I'd like to see two versions, actually: (1) Deluxe + 4 Scouts that can combine (and receive a FP upgrade) and (2) Ultra Motormaster (to go with Silverbolt and Onslaught).

    same here, only have Dragstrip, he was easy get.

    Think everyone including myself would like a non exclusive Widerider too, but chances of that happening is slim to zero. That would seriously piss off those who paid after market price for the Henkei one.

    Do you think Hasbro gives any sort of shit about anyone's secondary market "investment"? Not at all. If they did, they never would have done the last of the Classics Seekers. If Hasbro decided to issue a US version of Henkei Wildrider, they'd do so without hesitation. However, I'd rather they use the Hot Rodimus mold to make Brakedown, since we could paint ANY mold black for Wildrider.

    Henkei Wildrider =/= "Wildrider"

    Sorry, it may be a cool toy, but it looks more like Rodimus trying to go out on Halloween as his favorite Decepticon.

    I would love to have all the stunticons released in Generations or RTS. New molds, or repaints/remolds, with at least new heads would be great. Those lines, like most others could use more decepticons.

    I'm all for it, but then I'm all for any new Classics-style figures really. But I doubt they'll do it any time soon since Botcon is doing the same characters for the box set. I mean, they certainly could... just seems unlikely in the near future to me.

    I would love to see it happen. I've always liked the Stunticons so they would have a very special place in my classics collection.

    Since the Motormaster name seems to be in limbo, I've already done that with any fiction I concoct. :thumbs2:

    Well, here is what I'm doing.

    Dragstrip- as himself
    Wildrider- repainted and retooled Classics Rodimus mold
    Dead End- repainted and retooled Classics 350 Z mold
    Breakdown- repainted and retooled Classics Sun/Swipe mold

    ^These I have and am working on, about halfway there.

    So until I can score a Classics Prime mold my stunticons will be leaderless.

    Not in limbo. It was never trademarked.

    Personally I think we will eventually get a Breakdown.....

    They already did the head sculpt and if the seeker issue is any indication, they will eventually release a version for the masses of anything released at BotCon that is THAT coveted. So I think a G1 paint of that figure is a definate....it's just a matter of time.

    The others? Hard to say....I guess it depends on how many toys they want to sell.

    Brakedow/Breakdown - HFTD Scout Brakedown
    Dragstrip - Dragstrip
    wildrider -
    Deadend - HFTD Deadend. Yeah, he works for me as the character with that head, though I wouldn't mind a new one done either.
    MotorMaster - PCC Crankcase - which I then use the rally bots for the stunticons in menasor mode.

    At least that's what I've got so far. Though personally, I really only use drag strip, Brakedown, and the PCC Crankcase with rallybots as menasor for my shelf. HFTD Dead End is rather ugly and not to my taste.

    I would love for them to at least finish the cars in the CHUG line. And repurposing Nemesis Prime as Motormaster simply does not work..
