    Why is it that over countless different Transformers toy lines, Decepticons Runabout and Runamuck seem to be forgotten. No Alternaters, Classics, Universe! Surely it would be obvious that one can be a repaint of the other.

    Can anyone think of any other Decepticons in particular that have been forgotten?

    You're obviously not informed. Runabout and Runamuck are scheduled to appear as retools of Wheeljack.

    Runamuck also had a toy in Revenge of the Fallen (Legends Jazz redeco, sold in the Straightaway Shootout Target exclusive 5-pack).

    It's possible matters are complicated by the fact that Hasbro doesn't have the trademark to Runabout anymore. It'll be interesting to see what FunPub calls Runabout next year, or if they can get around the trademark usage.

    As for forgotten Decepticons, I'd love to see Hasbro go balls-out and make a new Sixshot figure. Now there's somebody who's been overlooked for too long.

    I'd wanna see a new Sixshot!

    As for another forgotten Con, how about Reflector, core members of the G1 cons and only had 1 toy since :p

    Let's hear it for Bright-Con! Thinking about Sixshot, the original mould wouldn't need that much tinkering to make it fully articulated. That's how I'd love to see him revisited.

    My main men Octopunch, Roadblock and the Decepticon Pretender Monsters need more love.

    Counterpunch get's overlooked a lot...it's always about Punch, and his psychological issues. :p 

    BM Thrust & Armada Wheeljack never seem to get any love either.

    It should be noted, however, that one will be next years Club freebie and the other sold through the Club. Both won't be on general sale in shops.

    We actually did see a "Runamuck" in both Cybertron and the movie lines.

    Not so much forgotten, but Hasbro's held the Trademark for Soundwave for forever. He's gotten Reissued, a new character and figure in Cybertron, a character and figure in Animated, a character and figure for RotF and now DotM, a new character in Prime (no figure yet, but it'll be there).

    And yet no Classics figure. Why?

    ^ He got a figure in Generations. He might not be "Classics enough" for many, but he's in the line, and you left him off your list.
