    Would you want scout class figures in Classics 3.0? And what characters might work?

    With the way ROTF Scouts have turned out, it might be a good way to incorporate some smaller G1, Beast, etc. TFs, with more posability than Legends. But then again, Universe Legends were pretty cool, and already took care of most of the Mini-bots. There might be no need for Scouts in this line.

    There may be good ways to do it, like new combiner teams perhaps or maybe some smaller beasts like Rattrap. What do you think?

    Insecticons is the number one answer.

    Followed by Gears, Windcharger and Seaspray

    Followed by new Energon style combiner limbs of protectobots and stunticons

    We need more combiner limbs, especialy the Stunticons. If they simply use the Energon Maximus system, they should be able to make 4 different limbs and make a Deluxe Motormaster to use the Scouts, but unlike Energon Hasbro CAN make the figures be good as stand-alone figures.

    Well, I say the Frenzy and Rumble cassettes would work, If maybe they had a Voyager Class Soundwave to fit in...Scratch that, Ultra class Soundwave! It could have a little button on it that made sound effects in tape player mode!

    I don't know about Cassettes as scouts. Legends for sure, but not scouts

    The cassettes sound like a great idea. Yea their alt modes would be out of scale but it would be nice to have larger robot forms of them.

    While I'm not a real big fan of the scout size there are some vehicle modes that really call for a scout size and if it helps us to get more of the characters into the line then I'm cool with it.

    I'd like some redesigns of Basics from BW, like Ratrap or Airrazor. Also, combiner limbs should be scouts too, as many are saying.

    I'd love Seacons, so I could troop-build those crazy fish and add them to my Masterforce display.

    Scouts would be a great way to not cop-out with legends.

    I hate legends so much.

    I think the Throttlebots need a Classics makeover like there's no tomorrow, and Scout class would be perfect for them.

    I can see Brawn, Windcharger, Gears, Warpath, Beachcomber, Wheelie, Frenzy/Rumble, Squawkbox (Legends Beastbox and Squawktalk, combine to form Scout Squawkbox), and Reflector (3 Legends figs, combine to form Scout sized camera) working for Scouts.

    Insecticons aside, any character they could make as a Scout-class figure I'd prefer they make into a Deluxe.

    As stated above, and like I've said before, the Legends class should be made up of Cassettes as far as new molds go.

    Well if they make the cassette's the same size as Hound's Ravage, they could pack 2 cassette's per pack.

    Of course, Hasbro should release a Soundwave at the same time so they can work together. Don't expect people to buy cassette's in anticipation of Soundwave coming 1/2 year later.
