    Classics will continue after The Movie, its a great idea and has a lot of potential and at the moment it dosent look like we'll be getting anymore Classics this side of the movie, what do you think?

    At Botcon Hasbro I believe said no to this and that Classics after wave 3 were done, but they also didn't rule out the possibility of continuing Classics sometime after it's initial intended run after the movie.

    Money talks, so if the line sells well I don't see how Hasbro would give up on the line. The rerelease movie DVD and the live action movie brings a lot of old fans back while adding new fans and Classics is a perfect way to appeal to old and new fans alike.

    I donno, the current lineup of Classic's repaints looks pretty darn good to me, if not better then the originals (Ramjet and Skywarp).

    True enough, Repaints of classics = ok. re-paints of Armada, Energon, Cybertron= crappy, in my book.

    I would love to see some more G2 or Machine Wars repaints though.

    I beg to differ.
    The Energon and Cybertron repaints have been better than the originals.
    Most have been homages to G1 characters.

    Hot Shot = Hot Rod
    Crosswise = Smokescreen
    Brakedown = Kup
    Hardtop = Swindle

    Count me in too! I really hope Hasbro continues the Classics line...I want to see the rest of the G1 cars like Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Hound, Jazz, Prowl, Dinobots etc. I would buy them all.

    It is just the type of collector that I am I guess. For the most part I just collect the mold and stay away from re-paints.

    My question is would you all like new molds based on these classic characters, or re-panints loosly based on the character.
