    Do you think there will be any Decepticons that turn into cars? The only ones there were, were exclusives if I recall correctly. I recently noticed that I only have Decepticons with flying alt modes, except for WFC Megatron and Galvatron. But I think it would be cool to have some cars as well.

    I just checked at Kapow Toys and saw no Decepticon cars there either... :(

    The only Decepticon cars that even have a shot of being made at mass retail are the Stunticons, and even then I suspect they would be retools like G2 Breakdown was for the G2 Botcon set.

    That's why I'm eager for the Prime toys, because at least TWO of them (Knock-out, Eradicon) have awesome car modes.

    Ebay:
    The Classics Decepticon cars/trucks that I know of are TFCC Runamuck and Runabout (remolds of Gen Wheeljack, to be released next year as exclusives), Unvierse Drag Strip (the repaint of Mirage that was released through HTS), Unvierse Nemesis Prime (an SDCC exclusive), Henkei Wildrider, and WFC Soundwave (if a Cybertronian armored truck counts). There's also ROTF Lockdown, whose deisgn was used in a G1 comic. They're not technically in Generations, they're still Classics styled. I do agree that we need more Decepticon cars. Nearly all of my Decepticons are jets or tanks.

    A Cluster of modern proto like Cars based on the Decepticon Stormtroopers would be neat to see again.

    Perhaps GM have some show cars they can lend to Hasbro for development into Transformers characters.

    But I just miss the idea of sub-groups, pairs & small teams I guess.

    There's the club Runabout & Runamuck - but they will be really hard to get I think.

    Those exclusives don't count to me, as they are usually expensive to get and I'm not willing to pay those prices, as much as I would like to have them. Hm sad, Runamuck and Runabout would have been nice. Maybe a classics version of Knockout would be cool.

    The Stunticons and Battlechargers (club repaints don't count) are all I can think of.

    Really the largest groups of cars in G1 Decepticons aside from the Stunticons would be the various Decepticon Micromaster patrols

    If they make a generations version of any Stunticons I hope they combine. I am tired of them releasing combiner member that do not combine like Silverbolt and Strafe for example.

    That would be great in so many ways. I love that mold so much. I love upgraded micromasters in classics + the Decepticons are outnumberd and need reinforcements.

    Adding to that list I think there was gonna be an exclusive Drift as a decepticon with guns instead of swords as well.

    Hasbro likes to turn all molds into either cars, trucks, planes or tanks. So chances are we will see:

    - Reflector as a truck (confirmed)
    - Insecticons as cars
    - Trypticon as a legend size School Bus

    I'd rather Hasbro makes classics Barricade as a movieverse export. Kinda like how they did Lugnut and Hot Shot.

    Just wait and see.

    I see the Hasbro big shots like:

    Exec #1:"You know, Godzilla is not cool with Kids anymore. There is no appeal there."

    Exec #2: "Totally Agree"

    16 YO Intern: "Actually, there was that really cool remake they made of Godzilla called Cloverfield, I thought it was pretty good"

    Exec #1: "Never heard of it, now who told this kid he can talk? Kid, your fired"

    Exec #2: "Hey, kids hate school right"

    Exec #1: "Yeah, where you going with this?"

    Exec #2: "Well what takes you to school, a school bus!"

    Exec #1: "OK, OK, I see where you are going with this!"

    Exec #2: "Exactly, he will transform into Trypticon"

    Exec #1: "But what is his form if his alt mode is a school bus"

    Exec #2: "He will be a triple changer. School Bus into a School, into a big Teacher!!!!!"

    Exec #1: "Brilliant"

    Exec #2: "We should just test it as a legend size figure first. So maybe he will just transform from a school bus to an insect bot. Kids still play with those right? I said right? Where the hell is that 16 year old. See that's why I hate hiring those bastards, they never work when you need them to!"

    Exec #1: "Yeah, where is he. Screw it, sounds good. Produce 500,000 test units. If they sell out, we'll go hard core on this!"
