    Hey all. Just creating this thread to see what some others ideas/wishes are for this line (specifically the first run of them next fall). We now know about half of the first run so far (not including the 8 that we don't know anything about, like size class). That would be Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Prowl, Octane, Galvatron, and Onslaught. There are also going to be another 4 Deluxes and 2 Ultra's ontop of that. Below is my wishlist (includes one's we already know about), what's yours?

    Deluxes:
    -Sunstreaker
    -Sideswipe
    -Prowl
    -Octane
    -Vortex
    -Blast-Off
    -Swindle
    -Brawl

    Ultras:
    -Laser-Rod Optimus Prime
    -Omega Supreme
    -Galvatron
    -Onslaught

    It would be even better, imo, if the updated Combaticons, and Laser-Rod Optimus Prime were later repainted as Ruination and Scourge, but, I'll be happy if they just update those so I can kitbash the others (RID was my "G1", and I would love updates of some of the characters).

    Edit: Beyond the first set, these would also be great imo for the line-

    Autobots:
    -Ironhide
    -Ratchet
    -Jazz
    -Silverstreak
    -Smokescrean
    -Red Alert
    -Wheeljack
    -Springer
    -Sandstorm
    -Broadside
    -RID Optimus Prime
    -RID Ultra Magnus

    Decepticons:
    -Cyclonus
    -Scourge
    -Motormaster
    -Drag-Strip
    -Dead End
    -Wildrider
    -Breakdown
    -Shockwave
    -Mega-Octane
    -Ro-tor
    -Movor
    -Rollbar
    -Armorhide

    Punch/Counterpunch.


    I know, I know. It's a pipe dream. :( 

    EDIT: Oh, and Cosmos, of course. At least he has something resembling a snowball's chance.

    Wheeljack
    Sunstreaker
    Wheeljack
    Soundwave
    Wheeljack
    Ironhide
    Wheeljack
    Ratchet
    Wheeljack
    Cyclonus
    Wheeljack

    I'm probably forgetting somebody I'd like to have. I'd also like to have a Wheeljack.

    If we get one more Decepticon named Wheeljack, or one more G1 Wheeljack clone named Downshift, I'ma beat the responsable party/parties with a wet muskrat.

    I'd probably have to join you. Apparently they love to jerk us around with the whole "G1 homage, with a completely different name" thing and naming oddball Transformers with old school G1 names that we all recognize.

    I'd really like to see Classics 2.0 Sandstorm, Stunticons, Protectobots and maybe the Technobots.

    The thing is, the reason they've been using Downshift as the name instead of Wheeljack, is that they can't get the name back for the copywright. In the end it's just the name on the package. Any more ideas out there? I'm curious as to what others think will be the remaining figures in the first run.

    Springer, Springer, and, oh yeah, Springer.

    I want a triple-changing, Classics-articulated, G1-style Springer, d@mm!t!!

    Yeah, and a better Devestator, too.

    Are you sure? I thought it was originally just because Aaron Archer thought Wheeljack sounded like an evil name. We got Alternators Wheeljack and Spychanger Wheeljack in the past couple years, after all.

    And I think you meant "trademark". :)

    For once can we have a different new gestalt than Devastator? I'd like to one of the latter combiners teams get an update one of these days, like Abominus, Computron, Piranhaking, or I dunno, PREDAKING.

    Armada Wheeljack, Spychanger Wheeljack, and Alternators Wheeljack would like a word with you. And the Alternator Wheeljack was released after E. Downshift. With the Spychanger released at the same time as E. Downshift. Really the only reason an obvious Wheeljack tribute had Downshift for a name was because Wheeljack was taken already in Armada.

    But considering that it's going for 3 years since Alternators Wheeljack hit the shelves we may find our selves with a Classics or Animated Wheeljack. To keep copyrights current.


    My hope is that they release the unused titanium G1 molds that made it to prototype (Arcee, Shockwave, Cosmos). And release titanium Scourge in plastic with a mini-con target master gun.

    Trademarking is part of the copyright laws in the US (and other places I think).

    Ultra:

    Broadside - He badly needs a toy that doesn't suck. His two alt modes need to be more in scale than an aircraft and an aircraft carrier though.

    Thunderwing - Exactly like Don's Stormbringer Thunderwing would be fecking awesome.

    Voyager:

    Motormaster - He badly needs a toy that doesn't suck. Probably will have to lose his trailer, and not combine with the other stunticons *sharp intake of breath*.

    Snapdragon - Childhood favourite.

    Deluxe or Voyager:

    Darkwing - to go with my Dreadwind

    Deluxe:

    Wheeljack
    Ratchet

    A copyright is a protection on a piece of work. A trademark is a protection on a name. Once something leaves your mind, and becomes physical in some way or another, it is automatically copyrighted/trademarked. Paying for it protects yer butt better, but it's not necessary. The only way you can get a Registered trademark (R), is by paying for it.

    wheeljack, prowl, hound, jazz and soundwave, just to finish off the 84 bots, which, in my book, haven't ever gotten a good enough homage in any other line.
