    I'm sure we all love our Soundwaves, Wheeljacks and of course Bumblebees (...) in multiple toylines. However, there are plenty of cool original characters that deserve to be reimagined! Wether it be on Prime, Fall of Cybertron or Generations toylines, which non-G1 characters should become part of "the regulars" like Lugnut -sort of- did? Here's mine:

    Smolder (PCC): even if you dislike the Power Cores, many at least agree that Smolder was awesome. Pyromaniac axe-wielding decepticon fire truck? Also I just love his name.

    Tidal Wave (Armada): Even if he's a brick, Tidal Wave is one of the few Armada toys that impresses me. He was kind of a cool character too, and a reimagining of this warship-former would be incredible. I feel Tidal Wave shouldn't be forgotten.

    Icepick (PCC): Not exactly sure if he counts (there was that monster pretender in G1, but I dunno if they really have anything in common). He's got two awesome toys in PCC and DOTM and I love the character concept of an evil white snow-bot.

    Oil Slick (Animated): This charater is crazy awesome. An often forgotten animated toy, but I think he was a wicked cool one: A flail weapon, cool motorcycle mode, a freaking goat skull and clawed hands, there should be another Oil Slick in future toylines.

    Override. I'd love to see a more proportioned (red: less barrel-chested and tiny-armed) Override with a feel between the Generations Drift/Blurr mold, and the TFA Blurr mold. She wouldn't even need to be particularly 'femme' in design.

    Beast Machines Jetstorm, his toy was ok but it would be nice to get a more accurate figure.

    Every Beast Machines character. They were all great and it's a shame that for most of them their most accurate toy was sold with a Happy Meal.

    BW Rhinox and Blackarachnia: The only two BW toys that need new molds.
    All of BM: This line needs to get another shot, if only to be made more show accurate.
    All of Armada: This line had some really awesome toys, but most of the figures had terrible poseability, so I'd like to see them get redone with modern technology.

    I like the idea that Lugnut was retconned into G1, and I'd like to see a handful of select characters make that jump as well. It should be a very small number so as to not pollute the G1 universe, so I'm having a hard time coming up with specific examples. Bulkhead, perhaps?

    While I can't really argue that they should make the cut, I will buy any update to Cybertron Scattorshot or HFTD Tomahawk that Hasbro chooses to make.

    Ebay:
    Lockdown: he's part of the animated and Bayverse line, seeing him get a classics treatment would be cool.

    Smolder (PCC): like was said in the OP, this was easily the best of the PCC's and was a fascinating concept for a character. Seeing him get Prime or Classics treatment would be great.

    Yeah, I love that characters like Lugnut and Lockdown became so liked among the fans that they quickly got reinterpretations in other lines.

    Initially I was gonna include Beast Wars characters in my list, but there's just so many of them! Almost everyone in BW deserves to appear in newer lines, although for many of them getting vehicle altmodes wouldn't make much sense. They could always do it like they did Blackarachnia, I guess. I'd love to see Rattrap return.

    "classicy" BW Rattrap, Rhinox, and first-body Blackarachnia

    Any BM show Vehicon.

    -and pretty much any Animated character that didn't get a toy.

    A Scattorshot would be nice. It's just that I think Hasbro might just use an existing mold like Hailstorm,Darkmount or Warpath to make him.

    Edit: RTS Perceptor would be another one that could be a decent Scattorshot
