    SG Blitzwing from Blitzwing ( Blitzwing (SG) - Transformers Wiki )
    SG Omega Doom from Omega Supreme ( STA: Grandstand Convertors: Omegatron (Omega Supreme) )
    SG Constructicons from Constructicons ( Constructicon (SG) - Transformers Wiki )
    SG "G2" Constructicons from Constructicons ( Pre Transformers - Diaclone Constructicons Devastator - MIB )

    Any Diaclone repaints not gotten to.

    Blue Bluestreak, and Yellow and Blue Trailbreaker all three immediately come to mind.

    Masquerade style.

    Prime repainted into Motormaster
    Jazz repainted into Dead-End
    Sideswipe repainted into Breakdown
    Windcharger repainted into Wildrider ( or Hot Rod could be used )

    I'd also want to see Mirage into Dragstrip, but the Mirage mold is gone, as far as we know.

    Any Diaclone/Diakron/Microman/Microchange redecos we haven't seen yet (thinking of the Constructicons, the two Blasters and Blue Bluestreak, specifically)

    Wipe-Out from Windcharger

    Sideburn from Hot Rod

    Acid Storm/Rainmakers from Starscream

    G2 Sludge/Swoop

    "Crystal" Clear Plastic Optimus Prime (surprised this hasn't been done yet)

    Clear Purple Plastic "Conversion" Megatron

    Action Master Thundercracker from Starscream (the transforming toy, not the actual Action Master molds)

    "G2" Black Inferno (swap the red and black so he actually looks different this time)

    I wouldn't want G2 Constructicons.

    The two Diaclone Construction Robos would be awesome, especially if the original diorama is included.

    Greatshot and Shadow Maru would be awesome.

    Sideswipe and the other lambos while they can do the stickers right.

    Blue-silver Fairlady Z robo.

    Black Diaclone deco Corvette Stingray.

    General release Tigertrack.

    '84 cassettes with ALL stickers and with stickers, not tampos.

    Air Warrior Clone and other generic MTMTE seekers.

    That's all I can think of on the top of my head.

    YES. Why haven't they done these?!?

    Wrecker truck in all colors with correct stickers.

    The other two Powered Convoy variants with Powered Buggy.

    Yep. Also, I'd like to see reissues of some of the ones that eHobby has already done like Tigertrack, Road Rage, Clamp Down, Deep Cover, etc.

    Shattered Glass Optimus Prime, and Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus, because c'mon Optimus has been released in practically every major repaint color already, what's one more? :lol  Also, people could always use another cheaper Diaclone Powered Convoy :)  Oh and Omega Doom and Black Zarak, because we can always use more base-formers, plus as Maz said, it'd be fun to see what a reissue, free of GPS, Black Zarak would do to the existing market :D

    THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Actually, I would rather this hit TRU so everyone could have a chance to get it. Fuck exclusivity. Need casemates? Blue Bluestreak and Nemesis Prime from G1 Optimus. Instant sell out.

    And yet I'm still surprised how often people bring up Mirage, Wheeljack and the Dinobots in topics like this.

    Takara isn't lying when they say they don't have access to Mirage and the others!

    This is good though. Even as a single release and not part of an Autobot Predaking repaint.

    I'd like to see a reissue of Diaclone Ultra Magnus and for them to finally do a blue Bluestreak after all these years. I wouldn't mind more G1 recolors but I don't think I'd even bother at the prices they'd probably go for.

    Does anyone else find it ironic that for G1 we got a silver Bluestreak, and if the wishes on this thread come true, we could end up with a blue Silverstreak?

    I'm.....not so convinced those would be instant sellouts unless they were as big of a pain in the ass to acquire as the TRU MPs and weren't unusually expensive.

    This came up in another thread, but the statements regarding Mirage/Wheeljack/Sunstreaker is almost 10 years old now. Things could have changed which we're not aware of. I'm not saying they were lying at the time, but I don't see why the fanbase should continue to think a statement about a mold almost ten years ago means we'll never see it again. The Rumble and Constructicon molds were also written off as "lost/damaged/stolen" at one point (I think Hound too?) and look what happened there.

    As for the Dinobots, there's been buzz that they'll be reissued for a little while now, and if you've seen the MP Speculation thread at all, TCracker's hinted at them as well already.

    So as far as I'm concerned, they're on the table if Takara wants to start expanding reissue lines again. It's just a matter of will they.
