    In a recent Q&A session, Hasbro has stated that Universe has ended, but they will still keep the idea of it alive, using a NEW line. So my question is, what do you think would be really awesome toys to have in this new line, whatever they decide to call it? I support exchange of ideas too. Your ideas can be redecos, new molds, whatever, just keep it somewhat realistic. :lol 

    I personally want to see some more Beast Wars characters, the Rhinox Voyager rumor that has been going around seems pretty cool, but I want to see a new Optimus Primal mold, and maybe a new BW Megatron mold. What do you think of more BW characters in the future series?

    The most popular choices are WHeeljack, Jazz, and Blitzwing. Beast Wars characters are also popular, along with gestalts!

    This is also about WAVES. If you have any idea how to put the grouping or contributions into waves that would be realisitc, let me know!

    I think they should stick to G1. We need a wheeljack, and more decepticons.

    Gee... who asked you anything about movie verse stuff in the first place ?

    Anyway, imo Universe/Classics 3.0 should refine the established engineering...and perhaps add more & better paint apps, i.e. Henkei levels.
    Basically, I suggest an evolution of Henkei's best.

    These should get that treatment :
    - (Deluxe) Insecticons
    - Blitzwing
    - Shockwave
    - Wheeljack
    - etc.

    More Generation 2. The Legends Aerialbots and Voyager Ironhide were nice teases, but someone like Skram or Road Rocket needs a full blown deluxe.

    Ok, I like the Idea of G1 themed characters, since armada and beast wars didn't turn out so well. Yes, I'm looking at you Hot Shot and Cheetor!

    Ok, here's who we need.

    Jazz : Repaint of Prowl, with a new head, and no sticky paint!

    Windcharger : A new mold, a legends class figure.

    Gears : A new mold, a legends class figure.

    Seaspray : A new, deluxe class, motor boat.

    Blitzwing : A new mold, voyager class.

    Constructicons that form Devastator, all six of them each forming the body part they formed in G1.

    Another Rain Maker, like Acid Storm.

    Grapple : A voyager class crane.

    Wheeljack : A retool of Universe Sunstreaker with a new head, and paint applications on the front of the car to make it look different from a Lamborghini.

    Those are my ideas.

    Quit hatin' on Beast Wars. I'd love more show-accurate figures.

    I'd also like to see a "Classics Series" Soundwave, i.e. a reinterpretation of the G1 character. With an interesting alt-mode and at least one "tape." Also, I'd love to see a really solid Voyager-class G1 or G2 Prime and Megatron. A show-accurate G1 Shockwave would also be pretty sweet (or maybe even better, a reinterpretation with a very accurate robot mode, but an alt mode that actually makes a lick of sense).

    I like military alt-modes, so it would also be nice to see a Warpath, in much the same way that Powerglide got made at an appropriate size. They are doing Hardhead...what about doing a Headmaster as a Headmaster? Perhaps a comics-accurate Scorponok + Zarak, minus the city-mode?

    Also, wouldn't it be nice to see a combiner that's not a repaint from another line? I nominate the Stunticons...they are not my favorites but they probably work better than anyone else in terms of consistent scale.

    Here's some contributions that were made that did not specify size class. We should come up with the best size classes for these toys. :D 

    BW Megatron (Ultra)
    Optimus Primal (Ultra)
    Autobot Triple Changers (Deluxes or Voyagers)
    Armada Starscream (Voyager)
    Armada Scavenger (Voyager)
    Constructicons (All six, new molds and Deluxes)
    Warpath (Ultra)
    Hardhead (Ultra)
    Scorponok with Zarak (Ultra... OR SUPREME!)
    Stuncticons (All five, new molds and deluxes)
    BW Inferno (Voyager)
    BW Tarantulas (Deluxe)
    Airrazor (Deluxe)
    GI Blaster (Voyager)

    Also, try to provide size classes when you post. :D

    We have an Ultra Hardhead coming soon, as an exclusive. Repaint of Onslaught.

    I'd rather see this as a Deluxe. Dinobot is a Deluxe, and he's one of the taller guys in the show. IMO Voyager is as big as the Beasts should get, and reserve that for Primal, Megatron, and Rhinox.

    Also, clearly the most important Beast that should be made is Waspinator! (Deluxe)

    If we can't get so much as a new mold of cassette player Soundwave, I doubt we are getting this. Especially since it will be the second Voyager Blaster in like two years.

    I'd like to see more Scouts, actually. Scouts lately have had really good engineering but they are mostly non-characters. I would like to see some Universe Scout cars and trucks. Swindle strikes me as perfect for that.

    ^ Isn't that rumored? Yeah, that's one of the few Autobot cars I would actually buy on sight. Especially if he had a shockblast cannon. :D

    I'd like more Legends class figures, but with a little more love towards the Decepticons this time. Laserbeak, Rumble, Frenzy, Buzzsaw, Ratbat, Slugfest, etc.

    Man, if they released tapes as Legends and had a Voyager sized guy to interact with them, I'd go broke.

    Well, Inferno was enormous as a toy in BW, so Voyager might not be the best choice. For the sake of show accuracy, he should be a deluxe.

    On the issue of size classes, there has been an Ultra Beast already, Scourge. An obscure, toy only RiD character. Voyager is a good size class for them, but for Megs, I think something bigger would be more suitable.

    A new BW Waspinator mold would be awesome! The Animated one looks nice, but I don't have it yet. :( 

    On the subject of Blaster, he just got a Universe toy, I know, but the contribution was by someone else. Soundwave, however, should get a new G1accurate toy. He probably won't, since kids these days don't know what cassettes are! :lol 

    On Scouts, hells yeah! Airrazor should definately be one if they make Scouts in the new series.

    So, the revised list is:

    BW Megatron (Voyager)
    Optimus Primal (Voyager)
    Autobot Triple Changers (Deluxes or Voyagers)
    Armada Starscream (Voyager)
    Armada Scavenger (Voyager)
    Constructicons (All six, new molds and Deluxes)
    Warpath (Ultra)
    Scorponok with Zarak (Ultra... OR SUPREME!)
    Stuncticons (All five, new molds and deluxes)
    BW Inferno (Deluxe)
    BW Tarantulas (Deluxe)
    Airrazor (Scout)

    Hardhead and Blaster omitted. Same routine as before. Help revise!
