    So I was wondering with the guys (Yay drift kup and arcee!!!) coming up filling out some of the holes. Who's left that they could cover in generations much later if it continues on?

    Who hasn't had a mold yet in classics type fashion of a character that has been portrayed in the media (toon, comic marvel, uk, or even IDW)? Help me fill these lists in, for those of us who want only those characters, and would like a checklist to who's left. Legends don't count because of scale, and the fact hasbro has said it doesn't impact line choices. You can still use em as placeholders, or shrinking ray mis-hap bots, so they were marked. Fan figures don't count, but were marked as having fan figures for those who don't want to have to wait for official. Outside line figures that can be used are mentioned in the repainted area, but otherwise this is only Classics/Generations 'new' molds. Of a mold designed for use in those lines. I also excluded con figures, but marked the obvious for em.

If it's a series that had a more recent outting on tv, then the list needs only guys who's original toy was adequete by today's standards. (Armada hotshot making it into classics for example. His original was a brick with no shoulders.)

    And the cast is simply vast.

    There are far, far more characters that don't have molds than that do.

    But I think we can all agree that the primary one that everyone wants is Tailgate. Man, fans have just been clamoring for it, "where's Classics Tailgate?!? When are we going to get a Classics Tailgate?!?!" I'm sure Hasbro is just tired of people asking for it by now!

    Personally, I would like a show accurate BW Blackaracnia and a new mold for standard Rattrap, but nooooo. G1 this, G1 that. Hopefully the line will prove diverse enough.

    Both of those were more interesting characters than Cheetor or Dinobot. Don't lose hope. Give it time.

    BA would be really hot if she could be retooled with a new head and chestplate into a new Tarantulas as well. But he's almost better known for his TM body.

    I agree, some more Beast molds would be great. Although Cheetor didn't turnout the greatest, Dinobot was a pretty nice update (especially in Henkei colors). With the two you listed, I also want Rhinox and deluxe sized Inferno :D

    It's a tough question to answer. All of 1984 G1 has been paid tribute in some form over the past 5-10 years... every single character, without exception.

    Whether one finds them "classics enough" is personal preference, of course. :)

    We got Astrotrain in Classics, Octane in Universe, howsabout Blitzwing in Generations? (I love the Animated mold to death, but you can't have too much Blitzwing.)

    Instead of asking about all the usual names, why not one about who shouldn't have a classics mold yet?

    Cause I wanted to see people's thoughts on who's missing, which tends to show who stands out among the fans right now. I also want a checklist of all the bots that appeared in the toon, or were noteworthy in the comic to count down who I still need and want hasbro to make. Also thought other fans might appreciate a list like that too.


    No one mentioned Cosmos, Kup, Arcee, Elita-1, springer, or even wheelie. Let alone the wreckers.

    I do agree about the gestalts though, I hope PCC sells so they expand the line for bigger faithful renditions of G1 updated with bot modes. So here's hoping it sells well enough to explore.

    Who's left among the cast though that people want made already?
    Or is that almost it for the toon cast?

    As drift seems to show, as well as straxus, Hasbro will dip into comic mediums for figures. Are there any other characters that were noteworthy in comics that should be made in generations?

    Feel free to list them all, that's exactly what I'm asking for thanks. =D

    I would love to see updated versions of the Omnibots! They could be packaged with Minicon versions of the Powerdashers!

    I assume this is a dig at Drift? If so:
    1. He hasn't had a toy representation at all yet. That's about as important as an old figure getting an update.
    2. His figure looks awesome. Can't begrudge that.

    Or maybe Darkmount/Straxus, who deserves a toy solely upon his badass scythe.

    I don't think that was a dig at Drift. It seems like he was saying that the G1 cast is so huge that the list of characters that shouldn't be done or don't need to be done at this point is much small than those the fans want. People tend to have the unrealistic expectation to have everything, afterall.

    The Beast Wars guys are the ones that I want the most. In part because they they're so much better developed as characters, and because they really only need to remake two or three to have a full show accurate cast. Of course, Beast Wars is one series they said that they would absolutely NOT be doing in Generations. Seems that even two or three spots is too much to spare when it comes down to G1 remakes. :crazy: :banghead: :rolleyes2 

    I wouldn't make BA and Tarantulas share a mold this time though. They did that the last time, which is why BA needs a new mold in the first place! Ranty's Transmetal form is just fine for him, and if they're going to have a new toy for the character, I'd rather BA be as show accurate as possible.

    As for what G1 characters I'd like to see,

    Jazz - Either WFC or G1. WFC is probably more likely.
    Wheeljack
    WFC Ratchet
    WFC Ironhide
    WFC Starscream
    KUP
    Arcee - either G1 or WFC. WFC actually has a chance since it's less pink.
    Springer as a triplechanger
    Blitzwing as a triplechanger
    Shockwave - WFC version is most probable as it gets around the gun thing.
    Slipstream - as she didn't get a toy and she's in WFC, which makes her part of G1 now too.

    I don't really expect them to do many of these mind you. WFC Jazz, WFC Starscream, Wheelejack, and maybe Kup next year (as it would be the 25th anniversary of the G1 movie) are the only ones that I reasonably expect them to do.

    I don't know, Universe's 25th anniversary had this feel to it that any character was possible and that it was the line that everyone was waiting for. Then it was killed after only three waves. Generations just feels line a pathetic consolation prize by comparison. It's only one size class, seems limited to G1 characters so far, and is probably going to end just as soon as universe did in favor of the new movie, if not sooner (TF Prime's on the horizon, and Hasbro has been stressing that the gold box line is "open to the whole of the franchise" while hardly talking at all about generations). And, none of the character choices have really thrilled me except for Straxus.

    I think it's all going to be a big disappointment really.

    Cosmos and Wheelie got a Classics toy in Universe. Elita-1 got a Classics at Botcon last year. Springer got both a Botcon toy and a Universe toy. Kup... Well, we got a Kup toy at Botcon last year, but he's an odd choice for a mold and the face is too young for the Classics shelf.

    yeah I was just going to bring that up. But wasn't there a RID spychanger or something?
