    Lets list em. With Sky Lynx apparently on the way, I can only assume anything is fair game. Aside from the usual suspects like Shockwave & the Dinobots, which other ones would you like to see?

    -Technobots
    -Autobot Clones
    -Metroplex
    -Misfire
    -Slugslinger
    -Triggerhappy
    -Doublecross
    -Grotusque
    -Apeface
    -Brainstorm
    -Chromedome
    -Hardhead
    -Highbrow

    Springer in a TFC box would make me extremely happy. Though I'm not sure how "left field" he'd really be.

    It's a tough call, because you always have to srike a balance between "what I'd like to see reissued" vs. "what would be financially viable for TakTomy to reissue". For example, Star Convoy--a reissue many of us thought was a great idea--was a complete failure in financial terms.

    With that thought in mind, here are mine... and while I own all these already, I'm not one of those collectors that gets all indignant when something vintage gets reissued. If more people have an opportunity to get toys like these, that's terrific, as far as I'm concerned.

    Raiden - never released in the US, molds never used again since the release in 87, and people love combiners

    Artfire - the mold has been used within the last few years; can't believe eHobby hasn't jumped on this one

    Diaclone repaints - the absence of blue Bluestreak, red Mirage, multiple colors of Trailbreaker/Hoist bugs me, since we know the molds are around

    The four main Headmaster characters - they were very popular in Japan and it opens the door for the individual Headmaster heads

    Liokaiser - everybody's been talking about it for a while, and it's a popular combiner among collectors

    Big Powered - Roadfire, Sonic Bomber, and Dai Atlus in a nice big box set.

    I would LOVE a Raiden box set reissue.

    Outside of that I don't know how left field any of them would be.

    Omega Supreme. I'd love a Classics update, but, I'd also settle for a reissue of the origional.

    :)  :)  Hm, Shockwave is must have...but Dinobots, I was never a fan of them. So, besides these two I would like to see:

    -Superion
    -Metroplex
    -Punch/CP
    -Rumble & Frenzy
    -Computron
    -Sunstreaker

    Ah heck, reissue them all..........
