    One of my fondest childhood memories is the day that Overdrive, Camshaft, and Downshift arrived in the mail. Heck, I still have them to this day. Does anyone else feel they're deserving of an upgrade and released in the Univere line?

    Yea. I think they should be released in an upgraded form for the Universe/Classics 2.0 line.

    Yeah, the Omnibots totally need some Classics upgrades... but I'm one of those guys that would love everyone from 84 through 88 and even some of the Victory and G2 guys to get some nice articulated Classics.

    I can't say I really care one way or another. I'd welcome them if made, but I'd rather have near any non-mail-order guy first.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see an Alternators-ish approach, where repaints get Omnibot names.

    Never had Camshaft or Downshift, but I would love a new overdrive. Flip out grill gun, wings and all.

    I think that the toys would sell well if they have neat gimmicks.

    To be honest, I think these characters are too obscure to be in Universe 2.0, especially since more important characters are still without any modern toys. At the same time, this line gave us Acid Storm and Predacon Bruticus, so what the hell do I know?

    Of course. All of the G1 vehicles should be upgraded.
