    Going with only Hasbro lines since Takara groups a lot together

    I personally would go for Universe 2.0, there's only a few molds i wouldn't want to lose (Hound, Inferno, and Cyclonus)

    The original classics. I'd get rid of all of them and redo the entire thing. They are quite outdated. On display is even worse, they all stick out like a sore thumb. Standing any of them near RTS Jazz just doesn't quite match. I need better looking ones.

    I'd go with Universe 2.0 as well. Hound, Cyclonus, and Inferno were the only molds from that line that were that good. 2006 Classics close behind because some of those figures look pretty outdated and could use some engineering updates, but I personally like almost all of them despite the flaws.

    What I'd give to have a better looking Prowl mold. I just..don't like the way it looks.

    I totally agree. Every one of those figures really show their age next to the rest. Then again, the Universe 2.0 Nissan 350Z-ish mold needs work too.

    Generations. (Shelf)Warm for Cybertron was more like it. Could've dropped all the WFC figures and just dropped the Reveal the Shield subline to bring those figures in with Generations.

    And I wouldn't give up my Henkei figures for anything.

    I would redo Generations as I would want it to represent its name better. If I had full control over it, any Transformer character from any TF series from both the US and Japan could be in the line.

    Be nice to have Autobots, Decepticons, Maximals, Predacons, Vehicons, and Minicons all under one banner.

    rodimus from classics needs redone bad, that mold was crap before it came out. Following that Galvatron from univers needs redone, then maybe classics starscream.

    so I say classics, there's more in it that I want redone than the other lines. Wouldn't mind a new Prime without the crappy arm panels and fake grill or a g2 megatron as well.

    There are a couple Classics figures that I adore and I think still look good today, but as a whole, that line needs some serious updating.

    Original. Need better Rodimus and Galvatron. But only if they are not smaller as they are now. And maybe new Earth mode Optimus and Megatron. These too if they are not smaller as the old WFC Optimus and Megatron. Otherwise I don't buy them, no matter how cool they might look.

    I'd probably go with the original classics run, but all of them have their hits and misses, and I really can't complain much about anything we have gotten. Even the bad G1 updates have been pretty decent in my book. Love the lines and will be sad when it ends (though I'm sure we will get a trickle of repaints for years). Cant really think of a figure in the line that doesn't represent the original character fairly well for me.

    I'd have to say classics Grimlock. I haven't ever played with one because mine is misb hanging on the wall but to me he needs to be at least voyager size plus his dino mode looks kinda goofy. Also gotta go with Galvatron, he's just too small. RTS Windcharger & Runabout just because i want them to look like a Firebird, that would be awesome!

    no one said he wasn't, we were just listing the individual figures we wanted redone most.

    i dig them all, as these are the best of the best of transformers to date.(not to include MPs IMO) but if i had to chose, it be classics since its the oldest and stands the most to gain from a reboot

    but the mold i completely re do is galvs..i cant stand that freaking mold..so underwhelming and really doesnt do the character justice..

    The figures in Reveal the Shield.

    -Personally I think Wreck-Gar was a horrible figure with even more horrible QC. Stress marks in hands and broken handlebars are not cool.

    -Tracks was a cool mold but I have no idea who at Hasbro thought those trashy flames looked awesome.

    -Jazz. Again cool mold but the Hasbro version had almost zero paint, he was yellow, had one white forearm and one painted forearm in most cases and they used that awful dull gray plastic.

    -Perceptor was awful.

    -G2 Prime was awful, the 20 year old mold is still a million times better.

    Also a lot of them felt like they were made with really cheap materials.
