    Who do you think is practically a requirement? Characters that the Classics line shouldn't end without. For me:

    Deluxe Arcee
    Deluxe Gears (Kup repaint?)
    Deluxe Trailbreaker/Hoist
    Deluxe Brawn
    Deluxe Huffer/Pipes
    Deluxe Sandstorm
    Deluxe Broadside
    Deluxe Sunstorm
    Deluxe Blitzwing
    Deluxe/Voyager Shockwave
    Dinobots!

    If they could do that, I'd probably explode from the epicness.

    Sounds good. I'd be happy with those included with the previous releases. Once it ends though I predict a mass black Reebok and purple shroud kinda deal for the fandom. lol

    I can honestly say that if they retired Classics now, I would be pretty damn satisfied. Since 2005, I have got a ton of great toys. Not just great toys, really. I got the toys I wanted to have as a child. I always wanted G1 toys to be articulated and show accurate as these are. And I have been able to get characters that I wanted as a child but I didn't get because my parents couldn't afford them. I would be happy with my collection exactly as it is.

    However... if I could have input into one last run...

    I would PASS on the following--

    Arcee - because Animated works for me, even though I would definitely buy a Classics update
    Sunstorm - because CHMS already made a great KO that fills his spot
    Shockwave - because I still use Energon Shockblast in that role.

    I would LIKE--

    all the other ones you mentioned
    G1 Sizzle
    Masterforce Metalhawk
    Voyager Class Star Saber
    A 2-pack with Topspin and Twin Twist
    Overlord
    Jhiaxus
    Snarl and Sludge (I'm fine with Animated Slag and Swoop)
    Omega Supreme and/or WFC Trypticon

    ...are we assuming that consumers can actually FIND them this round? ;) 

    There are too many to choose from.

    1. Shockwave
    2. Soundwave
    3. Dinobots (Voyager)
    4. Metroplex (New Ultra Mansized Class)
    5. Trypticon (also Mansized Class)
    6. Gnaw. (I would love me some Sharkticons!)
    7. Arcee
    8. Springer (triple changer)
    9. Blitzwing (triple changer)
    10. Unicron (Transformers 2010 USA release)
    11. Primus (Transformers 2010 USA release)
    12. Galvatron Ultra or Leader
    13. Whirl
    14. Roadbuster

    Then there's the Pretenders, targetmasters, headmasters, powermasters, G1 figures not done (Like gears, Huffer) and those from the show who never got a mass release toy (Reflector, Rainmakers)...Hasbro/Takara has only scratched the surface on Classics.

    Well there is a SLIGHT twist...

    It would at least be nice to get most of the new-head guys we've been seeing in the instructions.

    The (new-mold) characters who I really want to see though:

    Shockwave
    Arcee
    Slag
    Blitzwing
    Laserbeak
    Motormaster (and Scout-class Stunticons)
    Scorponok
    Brawn
