    I was paging through the recent "Ideal Universe 3.0" thread, and while there are some cool ideas in there, many of them seem to be way too good to be true. Many figures would be insanely expensive for Hasbro to produce, and would be very difficult to promote without a current cartoon.

    With that in mind, what would you REALISTICALLY like to see in the next wave of Classics/Universe?

    Here are the rules:

    -You may pick FOUR scouts. Of those, two can be new molds, and at least one must be a non-G1 character.

    -You may pick EIGHT deluxes. Of those, four can be new molds, and at least three must be non-G1 characters.

    -You may pick FOUR voyagers. Of those, two can be new molds, and at least one must be a non-G1 character.

    -You may pick THREE ultras. Of those, two can be new molds, and at least one must be a non-G1 character.

    -You may select one Masterpiece figure to be released outside of Japan. It can EITHER be a previously-existing figure (excluding Masterpiece Megatron), or a new mold.

    -Pick as many legends figures as you want. You must make use of repaints, however, in addition to new molds.

    -If a new mold is used, it CAN be repainted as another character without counting as another new mold.

    -None of the above can be characters that have been released as exclusives within the past 3 Botcons (2007-2009) unless they have drastically different alternate modes. In other words, Thundercracker, Kup, Dirge, Thrust, Scourge, etc. are off limits.

    As an example, here's my selections:

    SCOUTS:
    -Bombshell (repaint of Energon Insecticon)
    -Ratbat (based upon EJ Su's Devastation design, new mold)
    -Signal Lancer (aka the traffic light from Cybertron, new mold)
    -Outback (repaint of Energon Strongarm)

    DELUXES:
    -Blitzwing (new mold, G1 version or a realistic take on good o' Animated Blitzy [preferably the latter])
    -Wheeljack (minor repaint of Energon Downshift with "ears" cast in blue plastic and maybe a new shoulder cannon)
    -Jazz (new mold, based on G1)
    -Sunstorm (repaint of Classics Starscream)
    -Runabout (new mold)
    -Runamuck (repaint of Runabout)
    -Rattrap (based on BW version, new mold)
    -Terrorsaur (based on BW version, repaint of Cybertron Brimstone)

    VOYAGERS:
    -Motormaster (repaint of Classics OP with a new head)
    -Warpath (new mold)
    -Rhinox (new mold)
    -Huffer (another repaint of Classics OP, using the Motormaster head)

    ULTRAS:
    -Jhiaxus (repaint of Universe Powerglide with a new head and removal of heart)
    -Lugnut (new mold- realistic style for an Animated character)
    -Thunderwing (new mold based on Stormbringer design, with repaint potential as Energon Megatron)

    MASTERPIECE:
    -A US release of Masterpiece Grimlock

    I saw some really awesome customs that did this. I agree, they'd definitely need guns.

    Those are some really sweet ideas. Headmaster is one I'd never really thought of, and the Snapdragon/Apeface idea is pretty cool. Re: Nova Prime, I'd like to see pretty much anyone that Don or EJ redesigned get a toy at some point (unrealistic, but a man can dream).

    Actually, on that note, did anyone see the ROTF Bludgeon toy at Botcon? If so, was it anything like his Stormbringer counterpart?

    Awesome. I totally forgot about her. SUSAN FTW! :thumbs2:

    Maybe, as long as they keep the same basic design of the original.
