    I've been wondering about this since I read this interview with Don.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/archive/index.php/t-159034.html

    In the article he mentions he helped design "two deluxes and TWO OF THE SMALLER CLASSICS 2.0"

    Could basic figures end up in classics?

    What do you think?

    I wanna see Brawn

    Or Insecticons or Combiner limbs. (Although I know both our doubtful. Especially with insecticons since Hasbro said there won't be any beasts in classics)

    Combiners sound hopeful. They've touched on the other great aspects of G1, and Grimlock's Arch-Nemesis is absent so far. Brawn sounds fantastic as well.

    Who in your opinion is Grimlocks arch-nemesis? Razorclaw?

    That's a rivalry I'd love to see a writer touch upon one day.

    Maybe. But I don't think that's what Don was alluding to. Why would he "design" repaints?

    I'm keepin hope alive for basics.

    I was actually touching on Devastator, though I may have over-done it with "Arch-Nemesis." Perhaps a more accurate description would be "Great Rival," and even then Devy was more a rival of the Dinos as a whole, rather than Grimlock's personally.

    But I digress, BRING ON DEVASTATOR :p

    I don't think they're going to release another devastator. They certainly COULD make a new one, but they won't. I also believe that a different blaster would be extremely unlikely.

    For no probably, but if the subline does well anything can and will happen as Classics 2.0 wasn't in the cards to begin with either, but sales of the original Classics (which was just a hold over line while there really wasn't an 'official' main line between Cybertron and the 2007 Movie) did well enough to warrant them bringing Classics 2.0 in under the Universe monicer (though it's been used before too so this line is really Classics 2.0/Universe 2.0 -and, hey, they're even giving us repaints *like the original Universe line* in the Voyager and Legends Class-).

    Why do you assume all the legends have to be repaints? I'd assume Don "designed" some new legends molds.

    Obviously there will be some repaints like Red Alert, but how many more repaints can they crank out? Those Cybertron Legends have been repainted quite a lot already. Would they really use or could they even use the movie legends figures? I kinda doubt that. If Hasbro's going to continue the pricepoint for awhile they'd need some new molds.


    Keep hope alive for basics as you might, but realize a Classics Legends pricepoint does exist. A Classics basic pricepoint does not, thus far. So which is more likely to get new molds?

    I'd rather see Scouts than Legends. My Swindle and Huffer are lonely. But I think DON was referring to Legends. Maybe more WW Designs, possibly?

    Pretty sure it won't be basics/scouts. Legends class seems more likely (seriously- for the smallest, simplest TF scale we got, why wouldn't it get new molds?).
    Much as I'd like a new 2.0 combiner, it's not going to happen.

    Damn. You have good points. Thanks for crushing my dreams Edgewise :) 

    Although, we didn't know we were goin to get a voyager class, and boom, they're coming.

    They're repaints just like the legends we've seen so far. So maybe if they do new molds of legends, they'll do new voyager molds?

    Hey, I do have hopes that "basic" figures will be made, but just released in multi-packs, like an Ultra pricepoint 3-pack of Insecticons.

    And what I really hope for, but totally doubt would ever happen, is to get 2 new basic limb molds for each of the E.Combiners. Package them with repaints of the 2 old ones as an Ultra and put out repainted torsos in the deluxe pricepoint.


    It's probably contradictory, but while I expect new legends molds, I don't expect new Voyager molds. They've got the Ultra pricepoint and voyager and ultra are so close together... well I guess I don't have a good explanation for this, but it's my guess.

    i hope for basic figures as multi packs too...i love stuff like that...and i love your idea for the combiners...i'd even be happy with them just swapping limbs to create new combiners...the bruticus torso with a tank, two jets and a helicoptor would just be sweet...
