    Trailbreaker for me. Jazz got decent stand-ins (aesthetically) in the form of his Animated toy and his G1-deco movie toy. TB hasn't gotten so much as a homage since the 80s. Not to mention I think he has a cooler design and I identify with his persona a LOT more.

    Jazz. I'd prefer Trailbreaker, but seeing as Hasbro currently doesn't have the rights to use that name, Jazz is more likely. Of course, they could release Trailbreaker under a different name, but half the fandom would just explode, and that's annoying. And messy.

    Jazz. He's too much of a fan-favorite character to have not gotten a Classics figure yet.

    And before anyone says, no, having both an Animated and Movie figure out on shelves don't mean anything. They're still not a representation of the G1 character.

    Jazz. It should be considered a crime that he hasn't had a deluxe-size Classics update yet.

    I realize old Trailbreaker don't stand a chance here but... Trailbreaker, I'm rootin' for ya!

    I'd like both though, and Wheeljack and Huffer, Windcharger, Gears and Brawn all as deluxes. The last four preferable as small deluxes just like Bumblebee and Cliffjumper.
    Yeah I know Brawn has a legends size toy and Huffer a botcon scout but I want deluxes.

    To be honest jazz really does not need classics treatment 1.Animated 2.Alternators 3.Movie(Not a great example but still) I never quite understand why everyone goes batsh*t crazy for jazz to get a classics toy. Trailbreaker has not gotten any love since the 1980s he is FAR FAR more worthy of classics treatment than jazz any day.

    Exactly! Trailbreaker needs a break, he hasn't had anything and is usually tossed aside way too often. Plus he'd be a new mold that would open the doors for other characters as well, while Jazz is a no brainer practically since his mold is done.
