    There's the Platinum Edition Dinobot set that has the AOE Dinobots in the G1 colors along with G1 accurate heads if that interests you.

    I do like that breakdown! I'm not sure what "GDO" is

    I can't remember what GDO stood for either (Global Development something, I think) but it was the Toys-R-Us exclusive sub-line in Generations with the old red-background packaging. About fifteen toys across the major size classes, but the ones I listed were really the only ones that fit your criteria. There was a Powerdive remolded from HFTD Highbrow that homaged G2 Powerdive, though.

    EDIT: there were also a ROTF Skystalker redeco called Laserbeak and a HFTD Breacher redeco called Brawl, but those were really on the periphery of being acceptable G1 homages (in my opinion).

    There is a version of that which has the same G1 color scheme but with a new G1 styled head sculpt and he's part of a set that has the same thing happened to them.

    Here's a thread showcasing them.

    Dinobots Platinum Edition set

    yep I am aware of them. I like the sdcc set for the beast mode I think it is more g1 accurate and I like the platinum head in robot mode thinking about doing some parts swapping

    There's also a G1-inspired Wheeljack remold of the DOTM Que figure. Takara put it out in their Movie Advanced line. Hasbro didn't release it at all.

    ROTF Blowpipe was actually said to be an homage to Pipes.

    Whether it's a decent homage to Pipes is highly debatable (and the person arguing in favor is likely to lose, to be honest). But that said, that mold was a standout of the first movie line, in my opinion. One of the best.

    blowpipe could also make a pretty alright soundwave, if you don't mind him having a truck mode. yeah, there's already a movie soundwave, but this one still has a general G1-ish SW headsculpt, the blue is a perfect match and he has a window chest...
