    I've also heard requests for Trailbreaker & Hoist, other than that you've pretty much hit the nail on the head.

    Here's a better question: is there a G1 character you don't want to see in Classics 2.0?

    My guess is that figures like Wheeljack or Shockwave don't have repaint potential, so they don't get on the priority list at Hasbro or Tomy. Just a guess.

    Wheeljack has. They could use Slicer, for a start, or even make a new character with the Marlboro-style deco.

    If Energon Wheeljack (the white one) was simply re-packaged and sold at full Deluxe Price, I'd buy him in a heartbeat. Him and any redeco of Energon Prowl in the Universe line too.

    I actually think that, if done cleverly, Hasbro could create one mold that with a retooled head could serve as both Wheeljack and Tracks.

    I know, not traditional, but it would be a way to get two G1 characters who on their own don't have much (non-obscure) repaintability.

    Observe... both Tracks and Wheeljack have:

    -sports car alt modes
    -car roofs on their chests
    -car hoods on their legs (Tracks' are just rotated around)
    -wings
    -dual shoulder missiles

    Make the alt mode a made-up car that feels like a halfway point between a Stratos and a Corvette, and there you go.

    Barring that, I think the upcoming character "Drift," if produced as a Universe-style deluxe, would make a pretty great Wheeljack repaint.

    We'll see. I'm sure Wheeljack is in the cards for Universe eventually, in some fashion.

    I for one would love to see Wheeljack get the Classics/Universe treatment. And no, a reissue, repaint, or even a retool of the Energon Downshift mold does NOT count. Either a completely new mold or a retool repaint of the Sunstreaker mold, though Red Alert is more likely to get that treatment, so more than likely a new mold for Wheeljack.

    I'd love a Universe Wheeljack but only if it's a new mold. Wouldn't mind a Trailbreaker either for that matter.

    So far after wave 5 of Universe. Everyone can pretty much probably agree on wanting:
    Ratchet (deluxe)
    Wheeljack (deluxe)
    Jazz (deluxe)
    Blitzwing (deluxe or voyager or ultra)
    Motormaster (Ultra, with semi TRAILER integrated into transformation)
    Hotspot (Ultra)
    Soundwave (Deluxe)
    Tracks (deluxe)
    Cosmos (Deluxe or Voyager or Ultra)
    Brawn (Scout or deluxe preferably BB sized Deluxe)
    Trailbreaker (deluxe or voyager)
    Shockwave (deluxe or voyager)
    Bombshell (scout or deluxe)
    Broadside (Deluxe or Voyager or Ultra, though I personally prefer him in animated so he could retain his G1 Visage better)
    Kickback (scout or deluxe)
    Shrapnel (scout or deluxe)
    Springer (deluxe or Voyager)
    Arcee (deluxe)
    Kup (deluxe)
    Blurr (deluxe)
    Perceptor (deluxe)
    Gears (Scout or deluxe preferably BB sized Deluxe)
    Blaster (deluxe)
    windcharger (scout or deluxe preferably BB sized Deluxe)
    Rodimus Prime (Deluxe or Voyager with removable matrix)
    Sweeps (deluxe)
    Huffer (deluxe preferably BB sized Deluxe)
    --------
    Everyone else has pretty much been covered of the icons, especially since now they have an awesome hot shot coming that actually has shoulders that work!
    Maybe some other beast bots, or a new articulated armada scavenger, or armada blurr.
    I can't really think of who else really needs a new mold, except for maybe armada starscream who could use both wings as swords. Most of those could be repainted for various new renditions of other characters too like the stunticons, sandstorm, and more.
    After those, they can tap the expanded universe buck wild though. Grabbing randomly like victory saber, and others.
