    Would anyone here be up for G2 inspired redecos as well as G2 characters like Jihaxus getting toys in Generations?

    I'm not going to lie, I don't really want them. I am tired of buying obscure characters for the novelty of it, especially when A list characters are getting crappy figures at the deluxe size.

    Am I nuts in thinking that the ROTF Voyager Prime was an homage to the G2 Color scheme?

    I'd love to see a shout-out to some of the G2 decos.

    I personally don't mind obscure characters, but I'm more in agreement with Batman.

    I'd like to see Jhiaxus as well, maybe even Rook or Leige Maximo

    Characters most definitely, but not redecos.

    God yes. Jhiaxus in Generations is something I definitely want, and I'd love to see G2 Sideswipe, Starscream and Ramjet decoes as repaints of the Classicverse counterparts. I'm SO sick and tired of Bumblebee and Optimus Prime I welcome ANY character other than them.

    I'm surprised nobody turned the transforming Iron Man jet into Jhiaxus already. Jet and robot mode look like dead ringers.

    I would LOVE some G2-inspired toys. Sideswipe in G2 colors would be awesome.

    For the love of awesome, YES. Powercore Leadfoot is a good start (even if his colors are off).

    Generaly G2 coloring is garrish and completly out of stem with the "Robots in Disguise" concept.

    I say no. But I do like ROTF Payload. That g2 inspired re-color looks very cool.

    Hey at least we have a great universe inferno and skyfall.

    Would jump at at any of the skyscorchers done as new jet scouts/deluxes.

    Would like to see another megatron toy atempt to do big g2 megatron's rapid fire clip loaded missiles again.

    Yes. Thankfully, with Generations finally going into areas that Universe was supposed to have gone into, there is a much greater chance of this happening.

    In fact, we are getting more G2 homages in the movie line. ROTF Fearswoop is clearly meant to be an homage to the G2 cyberjet Hooligan and the upcoming Hailstorm figure (shown at Toyfair 2010) is actually based off of the G2 Decepticon Mindset, who shares some sort of connection with Onslaught.

    All I know is that from what G2-based figures we've gotten, it all looks awesome, and I want more. Specificaly, since Hasbro is all into this "rivalry" set ups in the bios, I want an Electro to be the rival for my Hooligan (okay, so it's ROTF Fearswoop, but I like Hooligan better!)

    For the most part, I like "core characters" and obscure ones equally. I could talk about G2, but I like all the obscure aspects. I'd be just as likely to take a new Dessaras or an Impactor as I would a new Trailbreaker. But at the same time, I do feel that Wheeljack, Jazz, Tracks, etc are overdue.

    I wouldn't mind them, but I'd rather have more A list characters first. For example: Give us a US release of Henkei Dirge before you give us G2 Ramjet. Same for Thundercracker before G2 Starscream. That covers repaints, but the same way for new molds. Give us Jazz or Wheeljack before you give us Jhiaxus. More dinobots ( or a better Grimlock as a voyager ) or a bigger better Galvatron before some obscure comic character.

    As much as I like the idea of getting Straxus as a toy, he's taking a deluxe release spot away from an A-list character.

    I figure its only a matter of time until we get a Skystalker / Mindwipe set with them redone as G2 Dreadwing. And I am not opposed to this idea in the slightest.

    Nothing says "Robots in disguise" like a robotic T-Rex.

    I totally agree. I should have said in my original post that YES I'd love G2 character homages but I definitely want to see the 84-85 Autobot cars finished up first. There's really not that many left to do...

    Wheeljack
    Jazz
    Trailbreaker/ Hoist
    Grapple
    (REALLY hope Hastak decides to go back and include Voyagers in Generations since the above three would work in that size class, obviously Grapple as an Inferno remold)
    Tracks
    Skids

    Yes. And to advertise these, the CG would be crude, and someone would rap over it.

    I would LOVE to see some updated Laser Rods and Cyber Jets. Maybe even a new Dreadwing and Smokescreen. Lots of good stuff from G2 that could be updated!!
