    i personal have my favorite transformers. i think there are plenty of g1 figures that need to be revisited. a couple of mine are: omega supreme, sky lynx, predaking, powermaster optimus prime, the dinobots, and fortress maximus

    what figures would you like to see done?

    i think that there are so much more that should be mentioned and i look forward to seeing what everyone else thinks.

    a few more i think deserve attention are: metroplex, ultra magnus, and damnit a megatron or galvatron that doesn't suck!

    if the usa will not let us get a true g1 megatron then fine but don't five us some tiny little tank that is suppose to be the leader of the decepticon and represent galvatron! atleast give us a descent g2 megatron(but that could just be me).

    of all the hasbro toy lines i feel that transformers certainly warrents this! i think that the fan base is a heck of a lot stronger for transformers then g.i.joe.

    1. the original cartoon was awesome!
    2. the current transformer product are geared for all ages (like the rescue-bot for kids 3-8 and others for 8+)
    3. the concept is so freaking sweet
    4. the global interest is also so much stronger

    Personally The only one I can think of is..Sky lynx! I mean If you think about MOST decent G1formers have been updated in some form or another.
    Omega Supreme-Done
    Predaking- I'll give you this one, He'd gotten upgrades but not Updates!
    Powermaster Prime- While yes does not have a update by name, but we have plently of "winged" Prime battle armours that I would easily describe as a powermaster inspired!
    Dinobots- we've gotten most of then in some fashion or another so NEED of an update? less so..
    Fortress Maximus- Pretty sure we got one of him along with Omega.. both got updates, just not as GeeWun as people would have hoped.

    Which is pretty much what an UPDATE would kinda imply..
    An "update" of the character: take "basic" character description and "make it better", so even if that means Less GeeWun and More ..something else, so be it.

    Anyway back to why SkyLynx? ...Why not! how?... aw shoot! Make him a shuttle with tower/taxi or something, have it be some kinda of anniversary of the shuttle for NASA! Have profits go toward the space camp or something like that!

    I'd been hoping for a PCC Omega Supreme homage with a redeco'd Heavy Tread and drones to round out the base. I'll just have to hope an Omega Supreme homage comes around later.

    Epic G1 Characters that need updates:

    Powermaster Prime with Apex Armor - keep the vehicle mode, but give modern articulation and make it in-scale with Masterpiece-10 Prime.
    Victory Saber and Leo - same vehicle/robot, but modern articulation, Masterpiece, and in-scale with MP-10
    Galvatron - the toy never did him justice. Make a Masterpiece, and in-scale with MP-10
    Cyclonus - ditto
    Scourge - ditto
    Scorponok
    Fort Max
    Omega Supreme
    Skyfire


    Not Epic, but would be nice to be rereleased.
    Throttlebots - they were bricks in G1 toys. More articulation and keeping the pull-back gimmick would be great
    Runabout/Runamuck - ditto
    any other toy that was essentially a brick in G1 should be rereleased and updated with modern levels of articulation.

    I would say all that haven't been done , but I would be happy with any new characters they do. Would like to finish 84 and 85 Autobots we don't have and Soundwave and Shockwave.

    The frigging Predacons. Screw Bruticus, I want Predaking dammit.

    Also, insecticons that aren't 3rd party. And dinobots that aren't 3rd party.

    And a new soundwave. And a new mold for ironhide that doesn't suck. And definitely, SHOCKWAVE. Oh God we need that one eyed bastard. Especially since he was in DOTM.

    It would be amazing if Metroplex, Fort Max, Scorponok, and Trypticon were in scale to each other...

    I am going to be "that guy" and say "this thread again?"

    The answer you will get is all. ALL DAMN IT, ALL.

    No worries, in a couple of months your next question will be:

    "which figures do we need new classics for"
    "which figures do we need new scale classes for"
    "why this alt mode"

    LOL.
