    Per title, from the Gen/Uni lines? I'm not very familiar with the comics, but it seems like this year gets us close to a fire team:

    FP "Springer"
    Kup
    Percepter
    Drift (neo Wrecker)
    ...
    Others?

    We already have a Roadbuster.

    We also need Topspin, Twintwist and Whirl.

    Which Wreckers? Seriously, there's the Marvel UK, OATFUCK, Dreamwave, and now IDW...

    What we DO have:

    Springer (Botcon, Universe, or FansProject, your choice)
    Kup (Generations, Botcon, your choice)
    Perceptor (RTS, Classics Legends, your choice)
    Drift (Generations)
    Roadbuster (Universe)
    Sandstorm (HFD Legends)
    Whirl (Classics Legends, or ROTF with upcoming Headrobots kit)


    Everything else is missing...

    In yours and others small personal canon, no, they don't.

    In real life, Hasbro, the owners of the intellectual property known as "Transformers" in most of the world, DO count Cybertron repaints.

    Please stop trying to force your own opinions onto others as fact.

    Oh, and Legends count, too.

    There are quite a number that aren't available at this time as updates. Of the standard line up:

    Springer has a Botcon toy, a Universe toy (both Cybertron repaints), and the Fansproject toy.
    Roadbuster has a Universe toy (a Cybertron repaint)
    Whirl has a Legends toy in Classics (again, a Cybertron repaint) and a toy in ROTF (a movie 1 repaint).
    Sandstorm has a Legends in HFTD (a Universe repaint).

    And that's it. If like Wollstone says, Cybertron repaints don't count (and someone who says something like that wouldn't count movie toys either), then the number of modern toys for the Classic Wreckers becomes a big, fat ZERO. :p 

    But what about FP Warbot you ask? Well that's not official, is it? as far as everyone's concerned, that's notSpringer. :p 

    As for more modern lineups, Kup, Perceptor, have upcoming toys and Drift already has one. And that's it.

    i get this feeling that hasbro doesnt feel roadbuster worthy of a new mold on account of:
    - his AEC version
    - the classics repaint
    - the animated magnus color scheme

    heres hoping they use generations perceptor to repaint him into impactor :lol

    He's a better Roadbuster than a Hot Shot, IMO.

    If you're counting Fansproject for Springer, then you can include this for Roadbuster. I have the Miyazawa Mokei repaint and it's ok.

    That looks pretty awesome, but at $250.00 I think I'll be settling for my Cybertron repaint while waiting for a new third party head.

    The same people who are making a Classics Scourge and Kup even though there are already Cybertron repaints? Or the same people who already released a Classics Dirge even though there is a Cybertron repaint?

    BOTCON Scourge and Kup are part of the 'Wings of Honor' timeline.

    The Dirge you refer to is a War Within character...
