    Hasbro is great, but they can't give us everything. So the question becomes: What toys can't they really update, based on the way they run their business? With any luck, 3rd party companies will spot this thread and get cracking!

    Personally, the only one I can think of off the top of my head, at the moment, is Sky Lynx, simply because of the various modes and whatnot, and hopefully instead of stepping on each others toes with the various combiners, they'll make the obscure stuff we all know and love =]

    And yes, I know there have been similar threads, but those are just wishlists, not "What will Hasbro NOT make" threads, thus is different ^_^) So who else is out there that Hasbro will probably make?

    I think it's safe to say that Hasbro will never make a Classics Blitzwing.

    A voyager or leader-sized Fortress Maximus update looks less and less likely as time goes on.

    I'd like to see a big-ass Astrotrain. Big enough to haul some legends around maybe.

    okay blitzwing will get done one day

    reason why they didnt release him around animated is cause there was already one

    we have astrotrain

    omegasurpream he could get done one day he is a big name

    metroplex tryptecon fortressmaxmis scorponix if these 4 are done kiss there city modes good by

    g1 arcee aka classics arcee give it time the odds are we will see her next classics

    they need to work up her name and transformers prime is going to do that once she is seen in the public eye more bam she is sure to come

    Actually the reason we do not have Blitzwing is because they can not produce him with in budget.

    I do not understand why people are saying we will never get a Blitzwing.

    There are reasons why they may not be chomping at the bit to do one. Hard to re-purpose the mold. Higher R&D cost.

    But the classic triple-changers HAVE been revisited before, and they are characters with a pretty high profile. Why say "never?"

    Well, I think we know this already:

    Combiners
    Trypticon, metroplex, omega, etc.

    The rest we may have a chance to see.

    Personally I say dinobots, not combiner dinobots though.

    Stronghold is a nice option if you are willing to stretch your imagination a wee tiny bit.

    I'd like a Superion redux, and a BIG kickass Overlord.

    Probably never see classics updates for these two. And both are DEFINITE 3rd party wishes.

    Well, I don't know... It's possible that Trypticon and Metroplex at least could be done as Cyberverse playsets (like the Ark) and unfold into battle stations/cities... I don't know if Hasbro would do that though.

    Classics Astrotrain and Octane have not been repainted in to different characters, have they?
