    With non-G1 figures being included in the Universe line, which ones would you like to see get a new mold treatment? So far we're getting stuff as old as BW aside from G1 and as early as Armada. Some were really anticipated like a new Dinobot and Cheetor. Mainly because of show-accuracy issues like Cheetor's legs crossing in robot mode. Now, a lot of the newer lines feature better engineering, show accuracy so I don't think a lot of them will receive updated molds, but what would you like to see from other lines like RID or perhaps some more from Armada. No loop holes please like for reused molds in the series like the Combaticons from RID or Fortress Maximus.

    Personally I'd like to see some Beast Machine ones. Both Maximals and Vehicons. That line had a lot of missed opportunities for the toys especially for the Vehicon generals. I'd like to see a show accurate Jetstorm for one, a larger version of the Tank and Cycle drone. With Animated getting Strika, I doubt we'd see her get a version but I'd very much like a larger and more articulated Obsidian.

    I'd love to see a new mold for Primal Prime made into a Voyager class complete with beast mode, jet mode and convoy mode, he needs a decent figure for once.

    I actually like the BM Mega Tankor, he may not be show accurate but he's actually pretty cool looking.

    I want Hasbro to reissue Energon Omega Supreme or Cybertron Primus. I never had the chance to get both. I mean, if they could re-release Armada Unicron, then the two I want shouldn't be a problem. As for non-G1 Universe toys...

    -BW Rhinox
    -BW Waspinator
    -BW Terrorsaur
    -BW Rattrap
    -BW Tarantulas
    -BW Inferno
    -BW Blackarachnia
    -BW Tigatron (will probably end up as a repaint of Cheetor, anyway)
    -BW Airazor

    Pretty much any Beast Wars character. :p

    Where's your nastolgia? I dont think rattrap needed a redesign or waspinator airazor either as they were pretty show accurate to begin with.

    Beast Machines Jetstorm is one character I always wanted a show-accurate toy of, but probably won't get. There'd be a better chance if he had legs/feet, but the design doesn't allow for it. The figures of him we did get were horrible in all incarnations.

    I'd love some Beast Machines figures redone. Silverbolt would be at the top of my list, followed by Obsidian and Tankor.

    Same here. I skipped those two and still regret it.

    Another couple of TFs I want to see reissued are BW Tigerhawk & Dragon Megatron.

    We will probably get the Tigatron with slight remold. But so far the BW Universe figures don't seem all that great. With Animated getting Waspinator, he's unlikely too. But it would be awesome to get a remolded BW Terrorsaur and Airazor, especially since they were so small and the early spring loaded transformation type ones.

    Here's my list:

    -RID Prowl- Deluxe class figure
    -RID Side Burn- Deluxe class figure
    -RID X-brawn- Deluxe class figure
    -RID Ultra Magnus- Voyager class figure
    -RID Fortress Maximus- Ultra class figure
    -RID Sideways- Deluxe class figure
    -RID Scourge- Voyager class figure
    -RID Mega-Octane- Voyager class figure (different mold form Onslaught)
    -RID Ro-tor- Deluxe class figure
    -RID Movor- Deluxe class figure
    -RID Rollbar- Deluxe class figure
    -RID Armorhide- Deluxe class figure

    Yeah, you said no "loopholes", but I don't see the problem in wanting new mold figures for the RID Commando's. Also, most of these are unlikely, but I'd be happy with pretty much any RID homage they decide to give us.

    I'll settle for Mega-Octane out of Onslaught if I have to.

    I'd like to see some stuff from all generations:

    Deluxe Beast Machines Silverbolt
    Deluxe Beast Machines Nightscream
    Deluxe Robots in Disguise Side Burn - nothing wrong with the original, but I'd love to see a new take on the design with less car parts hanging off of him.
    Deluxe Armada Starscream
    Deluxe / Voyager Armada Scavenger *with legs*, awesome as the other one was, the gimmick was never my cup of tea.

    And my big gun:

    Voyager Masterforce Overlord, drop the Powermasters and the city mode, but recreate the whole Duocon thing and add in a combined vehicle mode. Voila, a smaller, poseable version of Overlord who would carry over a lot of the awesome design of the original. Two vehicles would represent more bang for the buck, while giving everyone a chance to own an all new character never seen before in the USA.

    I'd buy ten. This FTW.

    While it's highly unlikely, I'd love to get re-vamped Masterforce characters, as that was probably my favorite TF series of them all.

    Well, Rattrap's original toy wasn't very show-accurate: Rattrap (1996) - Maximal Spy - www.tfu.info

    And neither was Waspinator's: Waspinator (1996) - Predacon Aerial Attack - www.tfu.info But they fixed him up for the 10th Anniversary.

    As for Airazor, she seemed almost spot-on. However, I still think Airazor could use a good redesign.
