    Should or would the generations figure count include repaints ?

    Especially of existing moulds like say RTS Optimus Prime as Scourge/Nemesis Prime ?

    or should it be only new moulds ?

    And how would you feel if one of the slots was given to a WFC Bumblebee reissue or remake ?

    Or should Hasbro even bother with a new Videogame like Megatron when the robot modes of the new and old one are nearly the same ?

    What do you think of the idea in general of the generation line having so many Videogame/Pre-Earth characters in it.

    Should Hasbro put previously available toys like the Prime FE figures or even Things like the unreleased Animated repaint in Generations packaging and reissue them as part of the line too ?

    And should the line include non Classicsverse things like say a Deluxe Armada Starscream or Armada Megatron Deluxe toy ?

    What would excite and what would disappoint you for the Generations line ?

    And finally would you rather that the Non-show focus be generation and that therefore there's a lot less Prime toys made overall with very few if any non-show characters in that Prime toysline, or would you wish the Prime toyline to have Prime style version of non-show characters like say Prowl or Barricade simply as they have a design from a Videogame say ?

    Please share your thoughts.

    Do I want 40 new molds? Heck yes.

    Will we get 40 new molds? Not a chance.

    I'd be VERY surprised if the count didn't include repaints. Starscream can easily be repainted into either Thundercracker or Skywarp. (possibly both but Hasbro hasn't appeared to be interested in doing all three in a single line lately...) Heck, maybe into Sunstorm or Slipstream with some retooling maybe.

    I would love to see the characters in the Universe game such as Prowl and Barricade get toys in Prime. I have little care for Bumblebee showing up in Generations, and shouldn't count if he's just a reissue of Classics or Cybertronian Bumblebee.

    I expect somewhere around 15-20 of the coming 40 to be some kind of repaint.

    I'm going to shake my head if this line passes and there's STILL no Scourge redeco of G2 Prime. It's such a blantant obvious redeco choice.

    yeah Id be suprised not to see some straight repaints and slight retools.

    Straight repaints Id like to see?

    seeker mold into Sunstorm and Duststorm(it cant be Sandstorm because of the Triplechanger)
    RTS Jazz into Richochet

    minor retools/new heads

    FOC Jazz into Chromedome.

    oh yes getting all those would make me very happy

    You ask this as if it wasn't a conditional given.

    I mean, just TRY to name a line that doesn't have repaints.

    I don't think we'd be getting 40 new molds for Generations. That Starscream mold alone would most likely be used for Skywarp/Thundercracker at the very least.

    I'm still wondering why we haven't gotten a Motormaster of the Classics Prime mold and the white stunticon from the sideswipe mold.
