    That is the way I see it too. If it wasn't for Astrotrain and Octane/Tankor I would have voted for Perceptor.

    Ya know, while I do want almost all of the guys on this list (couldnt care less about Gnaw, and a few others are low priority), none of them are my most wanted, which makes the title of this contest something of a fib!

    I'll go with Blitzwing but Perceptor would be cool too. Since we pretty much know Jazz and Wheeljack will be the final two, who does everybody think will win?

    I'm talkin about the whole list. I'd rather have a Thunderwing, Sixshot, or Star Saber than any of them. Though Blitzwing would probably be next to those guys on my list.

    (Besides, if they did make a Classics-style Blitzwing I'd be obligated to go back and grab Astrotrain :p

    If they can do Octane, Blitzwing's a must.

    Frankly though, say any of those three names and the average TF fan will say, "Who?"

    By average, I mean the kids and the guys who used to watch it when they were kids... Not us nuts that talk about it all day on a board.

    Wow, Blitzwing is kicking ass and taking names. Considering how many people voted for Perceptor, this is quite impressive.

    They'd probably say that about the majority of the guys on this list, though. I mean, the reason they're even on this list is because they aren't Optimus Prime or Starscream (except for Soundwave being on this list... I'm still confused as to why there isn't a Classics Soundwave. The 2 that I remember most from when I was kid were him and Prime, screw Starscream and Bumblebee)

    Hmm, let me think. A transformer who turns into a silly little microscope or a transformer who turns into an awesome tank AND an awesome jet?

    Yea, this is a no brainer.

    Dude, if they can make a Classics/Universe Darkmount...which isn't even the bot's actual name...they can and SHOULD make a Classics/Universe Thunderwing, Sixshot AND Starsaber. The only thing is all three would have to be Ultra class or bigger. But the sheer awesomeness of how those toys would look would be more then enough to sell them to 'average' TF fans.

    My guess is with Classics they wanted to stay away from objectformers...with megs being the only real exception. And the only way to properly do a new Soundwave toy would be to update his alt mode into something new to fit today's technology. As awesome as Soundwave was, it was all in the bot mode, his alt mode was laughable even way back when.

    That said, a new Alt mode Soundwave would be fantastic, as long as he could still store at least one minion. Kinda like how Cybertron Soundwave worked...only done better.
