    I didn't hear about this. I thought the Classics line stopped. But I just heard and saw the pics that its gonna continue next fall? As in 2008 fall? Doesn't Sunstreaker and Sideswipe look better than their version as Viper cars? I can't wait for Sunstreaker, Sideswipe and Octane to come out in stores next year!

    Yep. They've decided to continue the Classics line, but using the Universe name to, well, give the line a real/retail name. We also know that Galvatron is currently slated for the line, which will have 8 deluxes, and 3-4 Ultra's for the first run next fall. Beyond that, we don't really know anything, though we do know some that they want to do, possibly for the first run, and some that they want to do later on in either this line, or in Animated.

    I don't recall seeing these pictures before, though. Octane looks pretty cool!

    I think I might end up selling most of my collection by then. For some reason I'm getting less and less into TFs these days.

    Maybe it's because you think everything but G1 was horrible.

    It may be old news, but still awesome. I want that Sunstreaker so badly! I remember seeing a much clearer picture of them. I mean much much much clearer. I can't find it though... Anyone have them?

    Talking about the classics line never gets old. I can't wait to see the whole first assortment announced. Sideswipe and Sunstreaker will be cool but I'm hoping Jazz creeps into that first wave as well. It would also take them no effort at all to make a Runabout/Runamuck from the classics Bumblebee mold, never mind this lame Bugbite gobot from Botcon. Plop a new head on that mold and you've got Battlechargers!!!!

    I guess we're gonna have the new animated toys first and of course more new movie toys as well before we see the new classics.

    You're still sore about the Google thing on five different forums, aren't you? XD

    While new-ish here, he has been around the community for some time, just one of those lurker types. Hell, he's been at Seibertron longer than I have. Just for the record, is all.

    ANYWAY, on the topic, me likey, but me also need to actually see prototypes or the finish product before making a judgment as to the awesomeness content of these.

    Never saw those pix (makes me wish I hadn't slept through the Hasbro panel). Really looking forward to Classics 2.0. I think it's a good blend.

    I do believe, good sir, that was a burn.

    I plan to get rid most of my collection from Armada to Cybertron and only keeping the ones I really like. I should have enough room for Animated and Classic 2.0 by then. :)

    Damn straight.

    Swipe and Streak are indeed most welcome and far, far superior to their Alts based on these drawings. Jazz is an absolute must, they mentioned Prowl and Ironhide, and I really want to see Wheeljack, Tracks and Hound as well.

    I agree Bugbite was hella lame, but I have to disagree, I don't think that mold would work for the Battlechargers. He's too small and cutesy in car mode, too dumpy and fat looking in bot mode. I think the Battlechargers deserve all-new sinister loooking molds. Plus they are one case where Hasbro's love of red-tinted windows would actually be appropriate, or better yet Cannonball's purple windows.

    Its a shame. We prob wont see anything else of C2 until next summer.

    Toyfair 2008, with the first assortment in the cases at Botcon '08, depending on when Botcon is.
