    So I was setting up Sunstreaker and Prowl with the Classics (both of which are amazing toys by the way) and was wondering with all the news and updates we have heard lately (Even today about Scourge) what would be your top 5 "must make" Transformers for Universe right now? Ones that we haven't heard anything about yet but need an updated toy. Here are mine:

    1. Trailbreaker-used to be Ironhide but since he is actually getting made this guy also needs an update. He never seems to get one and is REALLY due for a new mold.

    2. Shockwave-seriously the guy kicks ass and really has had very little exposure outside of an Alt and an Energon toy. I want one that is a lot like the original with some new articulation.

    3. Dinobots-We already have Grimlock but what about the rest of his crew? There may be some issues because of Animated but at least Sludge and Snarl/Slag (who knows on that one?) could at least be made.

    4. Brawn-Yeah I said Brawn. I don't count the Legends since he was about the same size as Cliffjumper and Bumblebee. Make him the same size as them again with a slightly updated look.

    5. Stunticons (All of them!)-I saved my favorite for last. I could seriously be content forever (or at least until I found something else to want....say a week?) if they updated a Stunticons team that did combine. Motormaster does get some homages but otherwise little is mentioned about my favorite combiner team. It would be awesome.

    So those are mine. I seriously have to congratulate Hasbro on making such an awesome Transformer line which originally (in Classics) brought me back into Transformers and is continuing it with some cool toys for 2008. What would be some of your picks now?

    1.) Shockwave

    2.) Sludge

    3.) Tracks

    4.) Skids

    5.) Wheeljack

    an alternate would be blitzwing to finish up the decepticon triple changers... but this prolly wont happen because of his presence in animated.

    In no peticular order:

    1.The remaining 2 Rainmakers (one yellow, the other a nice blueish-grey)
    2.Sunstorm- Make him a nice orange color with white limbs.
    3.Red Alert- Basically a white & red repaint of Sideswipe with the addition of a light bar.
    4.Snarl & Sludge- The remaining two Dinobots who haven't gotten an update in either Classics or Animated.
    5.Jazz- New mold that has the same basic look that the Legends figure has, but with all the typical articulation of the average Deluxe class figure.

    Edit: Beyond that...

    6.Armada Starscream- New Deluxe mold with decent articulation.
    7.Cosmos- The Deluxe design we've seen (this is most likely going to happen anyways).
    8.Megatron- Make a new mold Megatron. A Voyager sized G2 homage would be welcomed, or even a new mold of Armada Megs.
    9.Sludge & Swoop- Wait a while after the Animated versions are completely off the shelves. New molds to go with the others. Give Slag a new name if needed.
    10.Bruticus- Repaint the Energon Bruticus Maximus gestalt into G1 colors. Essentially what they did with Devastator, but NOT a Walmart exclusive.

    Cosmos could be really interesting!

    5. For some reason i'm not satisfied with the reissue as a classics soundwave... i like that idea of having him turn into an mp3 player (like the concept artwork by guidi for all hail megatron seen here: Why MP3? by *Guidoarts on deviantART

    not to be confused with musiclabel who actually fits better as classics though...)

    4. Some Insecticons

    3. Jazz (even if he did just get an animated toys similar to his classic nature)

    2. Perceptor because no one else seems to care about him.

    1. Blaster because he shouldn't be a damn repaint!!

    I'd prefer a Hotspot in the same scale as Onslaught since the Protectobots were the counter team to the Combaticons. But we could get an Inferno repaint and maybe a Hosehead in some other color (silver, yellow, white?). Anyhow:

    1. Shockwave
    2. Springer that looks like the G1 character and has three modes.
    3. Arcee
    4. Jazz
    5. Any of the Insecticons.

    Anyone that isn't in Animated.

    Simple like that.

    3. Snarl
    4. Slag (call him something else if you must)
    5. Triple changing Springer (give him a tiny tiny voice box that says: "I've got better things to do tonight than die!")

    1. Trailbreaker
    2. Jazz or Wheeljack.
    3. F-22 Jet Transformer. (preferably Skywarp or TC, I just think an F-22 is way better than an F-15)
    4. Red Alert.
    5. A Headmaster. (Preferably Hardhead or Brainstorm, If Hardhead, make him and Ultra. Hell, I'd buy an Onslaught recolour if they gave him a new head)

    EDIT: Argh, anti-acronym thing interpreted T-F as "Transformers", with an "s" despite not being plural.

    Some of those I didn't even think of. Insecticons, Inferno, Red Alert, and Blitzwing FTW!
