    More G2 Redux and Wings of Honor toys and fiction?

    Classics characters are pretty much covered by Wings of Honor.

    I would like to see new characters based of of Classics or Beast Wars charaters redone. I think they may be headed that way for the new TV series.

    Give hard core g1ers that diaclone set they ask for every year

    Rid spychangers set using classics toys like kup, mirage, jazz and so on

    Another pre bw using the season 2 and 3 characters

    Check out that thread with more then meets the eye characters as tf:animated characters

    And that's just off the top of my head while riding shotgun

    I'd like another Animated set.

    But really, they can keep doing Shattered Glass. The toys are fine, just make the fiction better. It just seems like all the characters are one-dimensional and written for cheap laughs and shock value.

    Diaclone would be my top choice for overall theme, followed by another G2 set.

    I vote for Machine Wars Redux, personally. There's a series that never gets any love...

    1. Diaclone/pre-Transformers - This is ground even Takara/eHobby isn't covering yet, for whatever reason. If they won't, why not Fun Pub? They could actually cover a lot more ground that may not be as easy to do with reissues (red Mirage, Marlboor Wheeljack, the different Sunstreakers).
    2. G1.5/G2 - Give me Turbofire, give me Skram, give me Windbreaker, give me Manta Ray, give me a G2 Sideswipe already!
    3. Animated - I don't know if a second set will have the cohesiveness of the Stunticon set...but as long as Derrick Wyatt's involved in character design, I'm game.
    4.G1 Cybertron - Use the FoC molds to cover the ground between when the Ark left Cybertron and when they were able to belatedly return during the cartoon. Shockwave's covered by FoC, but see if you can cover other random characters (G1 names that showed up during Season 2, Season 3 characters, Japanese characters, non-Arcee Fembots, etc.).

    To be fair, Fun Pub did issue Diaclone nods in the form of SG Ultra Magnus and Tracks.

    Honestly, I am open to anything but Shatterred Glass, but how about a WRECKERS set??? This seems like such a no-brainer to me.

    I'd like to see some Animated. How about a Wasp figure?

    If not, the Zombie thing is a pretty cool theme these days. It'd be dead easy to sculpt some zombiefied faces and do up some cool broken-down paintjobs for some CHUG figures or whatever.

    Do up a comic, have a few "last stand" 'Cons and 'Bots teaming up against the hordes (with interchangeable normal and zombie heads!).

    Maybe even include a three-figure PVC set of Spike with a shotgun vs. Zombie Sparkplug and the guy in the wheelchair, heh. :) 

    I bet the fandom would eat them up, too. No pun intended.
