    Was Headmasters/Targetmasters or whatever it is not?

    Absolutely.

    Even if it was just the Japanese cartoons dubbed Western G1 stytle, that'd be awesome.

    We're getting Combiner Wars right now. Thats all Hasbro thinks the G1 characters deserve these days.

    Yes, but it should redo or ignore the events of The Rebirth.

    I mean sequel in the sense that it takes place in the same universe as the original cartoon, Combiner Wars is a different continuity, right?

    No

    Taking the nostalgia glasses off, the G1 show really sucked.

    Besides it already got the best pseudo-sequel shows we could've hoped for in the form of Beast Wars and Beast Machines. Now a sequel to those would be pretty cool

    Depends on the writers. IDW did a sequel to the old G1 comic and that was pretty awful, IMHO.

    Plus, the G1 toon is pretty highly regarded by a lot of people. Could a new team do it justice? Would a new voice cast be accepted? You could reuse the characters but would it capture the feel, the mood, the flavour of the old cartoon?

    Personally, I think it's a sacred cow that should be left well alone.

    This. In fact, feature the Titanmasters gimmick instead and let Generations be the new on-going G1 spinoff.

    If it's a series that takes place between the end of the war and Beast Wars, then sure.

    I'd be all for watching an Autobot elite force hunting down rogue Decepticon fighters on different worlds following the official surrender.

    We got Wings of Honor, G2 Redux, Dawn of the Predacus, Beast Wars, Beast Machines and Univere Wreckers and Universe. Those were sequels to G1.

    I wouldn't mind them filling in some of the missing time though.

    I think the OP is talking about a cartoon. BW and BM were sequels sure enough...but probably not what the OP might have had in mind.

    Other wishlist items would be:

    -Sunbowverse adaptation of G2, after a loose redo of the Rebirth/Headmasters stuff.

    -Further exploration of the Sunbow (i.e. non-Primus, non-multiversal) mythology, which I've always felt has been undeservedly abandoned in favor of the Primus mythology. I want to know what else is buried inside Cybertron. Is there a connection between Primacron and the Quintessons? What's that scary thing in the Matrix of Leadership? Is it related to the Vok? Etc...

    -Lead-in material for Beast Wars, but without turning into a cameo fap-fest.

    Why though? It would be great if it continued from there

    I don't know. I guess. Revisiting it, the show gets pretty weird sometimes. Ha ha!

    I wouldn't mind something bridging the gap between G1 and Beast Wars.

    I'd like Hasbro to license someone to make single stories set INSIDE the 1984 cartoon explaining the missing bits of the story. Do a one-shot with where the season 2 Autobots come with Earth, or a one shot where Defensor came from.
