    When will Hasbro make an classics Trailblazer? I like the character from G1 and I would like to see him in the Generations line.

    Given the level of rehashing and repetition related to all things Classics, don't you think if somebody knew, it would already be discussed here?

    Hasbro staff already said they're looking at it.....so the answer is when they're good and ready.

    They would blow my mind if he showed up for BOTCON

    I'm assuming we're saying OTHER than the legends-class toy here.

    I'll go out on a limb and say "not this year". :)

    With how tightly packed my pre-movie autobot shelf is already, I'm happy with the Legend. Of course, I'd celebrate alongside everyone else if they made a deluxe too. :D

    The Legends is a really solid toy. I know based on the quality of this little potbellied champ that when the larger version comes it will be done well. Hoist too!

    Eventually, but not anytime soon. I'm sure Hasbro is aware that the only four Autobot cars from 84-85 are Trailbreaker, Hoist, Skids, and Gears... (sucks to those that don't count repaints, HFD or legends, but I'm sure another Huffer, Brawn, Beachcomber, and Seapray will show up in the next 10 years).

    Plenty of people here can't wait ten WEEKS.

    Whatever ever else happens to Skids, i think we can kiss that name goodbye.

    It's strange how Trailbreaker seems to be the most requested character. I would have thought Springer, Arcee or Blitzwing were more important.

    I guess it's not impossible, but it would kind of undermine the DOTM product reveals.

    i'd like a classics/universe Skids, Trailbreaker and a real tribute to the mail away Omnibots.
    but...guess i'll have to keep dreaming until we get them.

    Yeah, why? It's currently being used for DOTM...

    My Botcon Springer is beautiful. Though I'd love a true triple changer one eventually...

    Blitzwing is hopefully on the list of ones they're planning. Astrotrain and Octane want their buddy.

    Arcee... I don't care about. I'm sure we'll eventually get one, but she's not a priority to me. I never really cared about the character. Prime Arcee is a better character 20 times over and she's only been on the screen for a few months.

    We'll probably see Trailblazer/breaker in the series of Classics that continues after the movie and runs during Prime (specualtion on my part)

    We will see most of the rest of the greats and TB will be there because of his easy remould of Hoist. And we all know how Hasbro likes its repaint/remould options with a figure.

    It's because Trailbreaker is one of the last pre-movie figures we haven't gotten. The pull of those 18 autobot cars all laid out together is pretty strong. I think for most people the season 1 and 2 cast are more 'core' to TFs.
