    Right, in the next wave of classics, whatever that may be (not counting the repaints one comming up) What would be a fitting character for a Voyager? A new Galvatron? Shockwave? A dinobot? An official version of Ultra magnus? A combiner leader (with sockets for a gestalt mode)? What do you you think?

    I'm sure I'll get some weird looks for this one, but I'd like to see Topspin and Twintwist released in a two-pack at the voyager pricepoint. Another character I'd like to really see is a repaint of ROTF Mindwipe as G1 Bomburst with a new head to evoke the classic character more, it would look soooo good Next to Thunderwing, Skullgrin, and Bludgeon. An autobot Targetmaster Voyager class Transformer would be good to like Sureshot, or Crosswise. I would also really like to see an update for Spinister, and Ruckus, either one would be fantastic at Voyager scale.

    I want them to do Ultra class again and make characters like Skylinx/Omega Supreme/Trypticon/Metroplex out of them.

    As for Voyagers, Galvatron dammit. The Universe deluxe one makes me want to kill rabbits. Even if they just upscaled the Deluxe but gave him tighter joints and transformed the kibble more somehow I'd be happy.

    I'd like a voyager Roadbuster with the old school head sculpt, no redecoes.

    Armed to the frigging TEETH.

    Voyager Galvatron would be nice.

    Voyager Starscream, based on the Masterpiece but simplified, would be a good way to get him into the picture too.

    Voyager or larger Optimus Prime who goes from truck with trailer to full Powermaster robot mode would also be nice. I'd be willing to sacrifice the smaller robot mode as a cost saving, he rarely used it in the Marvel comics at least not the ones I read.

    I want a big jet transformer. Let's go for a G2 inspired Air Raid as a flying wing Stealth Bomber, different, better mold from Mind Wipe.

    A new take on Galvatron would always be welcome.

    I really want new molds for both Darkwing and Dreadwind, although I did like the Silverbolt repaint, it looks good and is very nice looking in my collection, it was also the only way I would buy the mold as I'm not going to buy something meant to be G1 Silverbolt/Onslaught/Razorclaw/Hotspot/Scattorshot/Hun-Grr/Snaptrap/Motormaster, that does not freaking combine with any other figures to make it's gestalt form!

    A new Whirl would be cool. There's the Stormbringer design (Energon Bulkhead retool), or even just slapping Whirl's head on movie Skyhammer would be enough for me with the right paintjob.

    They already did that. Twice. First one was the Botcon Energon Mirage repaint, second one was the ROTF Bludgeon repaint.

    Totally. If Hasbro likes giving us so many tanks, might as well give us one that looks like it could single-handedly take over a really small third world country.

    Overlord. Because I want overlord, but don't think he could work as a deluxe. As it has to seperate into a tank and a Jet.

    Dude has to be big, good thing the sharp broad angles of that design will make it look larger than it is, like darkmount.

    A lot of contention for Hasbro to do a new Roadbuster seems to be from the G1 toy belonging to bandai now. And that basicly entails the design IP.

    Between the Animated Roadbuster Ultra Magnus and Universe roadbuster redeco. It seems that they can do fine with a new armored vehicle design, and a generic visor Head. Rather than the exact roadbuster head.
    Which will leave us room for potential recolors of that roadbuster. Leaving room for potential recolors like Brawl.
