    So we know it's likely Wave 1 of TF:Classics is:
    Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee
    Hot Rod
    Jetfire
    Starscream
    Megatron

    And Wave 2 is:
    Grimlock
    Astrotrain
    TBD?
    TBD?
    Soundwave
    Optimus Prime w/ trailer (PM-style?)

    My question is, following the same pattern (4 Deluxes, 2 Megs) what G1 characters would you want for a theoretical Wave 3 were they to do one?

    My choices (all provided they're not the TBD's above):

    D1) Blitzwing
    D2) Ratchet
    D3) Brawn
    D4) Springer

    and hmm... I actually can't think of a lot of choices for the Megas (I've got LOADS more Deluxe that would rule but Megas are harder) Maybe...

    M1) Rodimus
    M2) Thunderwing

    But I feel like there are some cool options I'm overlooking. Have to think on it more...



    -ZacWilliam knowing there may never be a wave 3 but hoping if the others are as cool as Astrotrain there will be.

    Dirge
    Thurst

    For the Megas, I would say
    Shockwave
    Sky Lynx

    It depends what those TBDs are; my first choices would be Jazz (how can you have a classics line without Jazz??!!?) and any of the other Autobot cars (Mirage, Hound, Sunstreaker, Ironhide, etc. any one of those would be awesome). Swoop is also very high on my list (as are the other 3 dinobots). I'd also like it if they did Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge, as well as any of the newer Autobots from the movie (well, not Wheelie, of course). It'd also be cool if they got into some of the later characters (like the aforementioned Thunderwing) but I'd rather they built up a decent amount of season 1-3 characters first. A gestalt would be freaking awesome too.
    Anyways, to answer your question Jazz is a must (still hoping hes a wave 2 TBD though) and beyond that theres too many others I want to narrow it down.

    I'd like to see something like this:

    Wave 3 Deluxes-
    Ironhide
    Prowl

    Sideswipe

    Wave 3 Megas-
    Shockwave
    Blaster

    Wave 4 Deluxes-
    Sunstreaker
    Ratchet
    Thundercracker
    Jazz

    Wave 4 Megas-
    Devastator...release two different three packs of Basic sized toys that combine. It won't happen, but I can dream.

    We all can...we all can. I agree with Zacs wave 3 consisting of Brawn, Blitzwing and Ratchet....but Springer and Thunderwing?? What about Ultra Magnus, people!

    For sure. That would rock. :) 

    But I'd also like to see dreadwind and darkwing just to screw over that Ebay guy. :D 

    But as for what others have said, I'd like the following choices too:

    Arcee (c'mon, it's about time we got her in movie mode).
    Cyclonus
    Shockwave (proper laser blaster mode)
    Springer would be good too. :) 

    And how about the sharkticon? And what about the seacons?

    Hrmm, i'd probably expect to see repaints by wave 3...


    Wave 3:
    Thundercracker (repaint of Starscream)
    Blitzwing
    Swoop
    Ironhide

    Wave 3 Mega:
    Shockwave
    Ultra Magnus (cab repaint of Prime, new trailer)



    Wave 4:
    Skywarp (repaint of Starscream)
    Arcee
    Prime Repaint (maybe into Motormaster)??
    Ratchet (repaint of Ironhide)
    Cliffjumper (repaint of Bumblebee)

    No new megas, or a retool of Soundwave into Blaster.


    I'd suggest this as it's not a full line, and Mega's don't sell incredibly well, not like the Deluxes would, and at the end of a line we always get repaints, so Seekers would be a easy option.

    Too many choices! Let's see...

    Arcee - for reasons said above. The E. homage was great, but I still want her as a convertable.

    Blitzwing - After seeing the Astrotrain prototype, how can you not want him too.

    Ratchet/Ironhide - The BotCon repaints were nice, but I want mass market Hasbro versions of these guys with HEADS!

    Rodimus Prime - I know they are doing Hot Rod, which is great, but I want Rodimus too, especially since the G1 Hot Rod toy was better than the G1 Rodimus toy.

    Jazz - how can you not have Jazz?

    Predicons - I'd love to see 10 years worth of BW toy technology applied to these guys, plus you have that Prediking option too.

    Somewhere in this line, we need a Wheeljack. He must be an Autobot, who looks like Wheeljack, and is named Wheeljack. This Downshift BS from the mainlines is annoying.

    I'd really like a Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker, too.

    Ebay:
    GALVATRON!

    Absolutely Galvatron. His toy looked like a goober, in grey or purple, it had a stupid head and no forearms and was 3 times taller than Rodimus or Optimus. I appreciate the Megatron gun we're getting beyond words, but damn... a Galvatron would be excellent.
    My next choice would be Rodimus Prime. I'd like to have one that can bend his body parts, his elbows, legs, knees. I realise Optimus Prime is the more popular G1 leader, and he's the G1 leader I prefer by all means. But Rodimus was also the G1 leader, and his toy did him no justice. Them making Hot Rod is good. But a Rodimus would be better.
    After that would be Arcee. She never got a toy at all, aside from the Energon one.
    Then Ironhide and Ratchet because their original toys were terrible.
    I'd also like to get my hands on a Wheeljack, Cyclonus, Shockwave, and, well there are too many.

    I'd take anyone I can get, as long as it's G1 I'm all over it. This is the first toy line I will collect ALL of. But primarily Galvatron would be excellent.

    How long is this line suppose to last? My predictions that we will see repaints like the other seekers and maybe one or two new molds if the line sells really well. I hope for:

    Skywarp
    Ramjet
    Prowl
    Smokescreen
    Cliffjumper
    Blaster

    I don't really care that much as long as they make a new (proper) Shockwave. None of this "no elbow" crap.

    BLITZWING! How can you have Astrotrain and not have Blitzwing? I've been dying to see a remold of this terrific toy for a long time now and Astrotrain only increase my desire to see something done right with that toy. As for the others:

    Deluxe:
    Sludge
    Slag
    Swoop
    Snarl

    Mega:
    Shockwave
    Galvatron
    Rodimus Prime

    I agree that the options are endless. I mean I limited myself to 4 deluxes but I coould have probably done 44+. I Want Arcee, and Ironide, Ratchet, Skywarp, Thundercracker, The Insecticons (Mega box set), Springer, Brawn, Elita One, Runamuck, Runabout, Blitzwing, I could go on and on and on.

    Basically if it's a character from S 1-3 of the G1 cartoon I'd LOVE to see a TF: Classic figure. And I know it will likely never happen but I'd LOVE beyond words any of the cartoon era gestalt teams looking like themselves redone (no the Energon combiners arn't the same thing at all) as basics and one Deluxe (Ultra box set?)

    I thought more about the Megas. Shockwave is the obvious choice but we already have Energon and Alternator homages, and though not as cool they've kind of taken a bit of the urgency off him for me. I think I'll revize my vote to:

    M1) Ultra Magnus
    M2) Classic Insecticon 3 pack with energon cubes


    -ZacWilliam who wants this line to be such a huge success Hasbro has to make them all. :)  I can dream can't I.

    Potential Repaints and/or Remolds:
    Thundercracker/Skywarp, Dirge/Ramjet/Thrust, Mayyybe Sunstorm.
    Cliffjumper (preferably not just a repaint)
    Ultra Magnus (Mega with new Armor-forming trailer.)
    Blaster (depends a lot on how Soundwave looks compared to G1 version)

    New molds:
    Shockwave
    Arcee (car) or Elita-1
    Ironhide/Ratchet
    Blitzwing
    JAZZ!
