    I've been out of the news loop for a long time and just discovered Henkei a few days ago. I'm loving Henkei and upset that I didn't get these versions in classics. I love the show accurate paint aps.

    Anyway I also just saw the news that there is more on the way? What is the difference between Universe Classics 2.0 and the 25th anniversery line?

    Who all is planned for release as updated G1 characters?

    So far we have
    Sunstreaker
    Prowl
    Tankor/Octane
    Galvatron (Bleh, pass)
    Powerglide (Ultra with boobies? Cmon)
    Onslaught
    Silverbolt
    Ironhide
    Sideswipe


    Who else is planned for release? Bluestreak? Smokescreen? Inferno? Hound?

    Also, what is the general time frame for release on each of the characters that are not out yet for example the 25th anniversery guys and Starscream 2.0 in animation colors?

    Is the Cyclonus a whole new mould to go with the other Classic updated characters? Voyager size?

    Thanks for taking the time to read my questions and I'll greatly appreciate anyone who can help bring me up to speed in the Transformers collecting universe. (No pun intended.)

    Thanks guys! I had no idea about Dragstrip. I didn't even think of that. What a great idea! I can't wait to see picks. *Heads off to google*

    Do we know when about (month) each wave is supposed to hit?

    We actually haven't had any confirmation yet that Hasbro is releasing Ratchet in Universe. There is a Henkei on the way though.

    think about what? that the Mirage mold would make a sweet Dragstrip? my Menasor has one, and other than the arms, is even largely painted the same way... and that was made over a year ago. *points to avatar that has been in use for 6 months*

    rodimus, bluestreak is already out with wave 3 (sideswipe,ironhide) its called silverstreak though...the link posted above will help a lot, thats where i got all my info too...

    smokescreen will be released too, ur right..another prowl repaint...and it'll be released along with the 25th anniversary line next year...the other deluxes will be hound/ravage, cyclonus, hot shot, etc etc...the most anticipated 25th anniversary fig is probably the optimus prime reissue..

    Yeah it completely slipped my mind. (Awesome kitbash btw :thumb : ) And since we're on the subject of classics repaints, I'm thinking a Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mould might make a pretty good Stunticon too. Most likely the Countache one. I always get the other 3 Stunticons names confused but I think I'm thinking of Break Down. Dead End is the black one right? And Wildrider is the insane one?

    Since they're doing all these combiner team characters, I wish they would make a whole team that could combine. I think that's a wet dream all of us have. lol

    Thanks for the heads up on bluestreak/silverstreak, heshanj. He hasn't beenspotted in my local stores yet. (I was just hunting a couple days ago when I picked up Onslaught.) I'm still weighing my choices with the Henkei versions on Silverstreak though. But I'll probably go with the US version on him since there's not a whole lot of differences. (Just the weapons.) I am fearing sticky paint though.

    Can't say I'll be going for the US Ironhide unfortunately. :(
