    I always thought it'd be cool if someone would go in and correct all the animation and coloring errors in G1 and release that as a special edition. But it's one of those things- if they fix all the errors, does that take some of the old charm away from it? Are we happier having Soundwave wear a purple Autobot symbol, seeing Sideswipe hanging out with Megatron in the Decepticon base, and having Starscream's voice coming out of a miscolored Seeker? Just to name a few.

    Personally, having had several random episodes released on VHS, having the Rhino version and now the Shout! version of G1, all complete with the original errors, I think it'd be cool to have at least one version that corrects them all.

    No unless we get a bunch of new Classics figures to go with it.

    I'd love a re-dub of the Unicron Trilogy though, kind of in the style of Dragonball Z Kai.

    It would be done in Canada if David Kaye is willing to revoice Megatron if not. I'd go with a LA anime based cast starring Neil Kaplan as Optimus Prime, Steve Blum as Starscream and Jameison Price taking on Megatron.

    Impossible.

    Sorry, but an episode like Carnage in C Minor would bankrupt any company who attempted such a thing.

    I would mind seeing all three parts of "More than Meets the Eye" given the "Halo Anniversary" treatment for the 30th anniversary in 2014. Basically, keep the original audio, but do up new visuals (correct errors, include the Constructicons in the background, etc). Put them on a DVD and include the option to watch the episodes as they originally aired.

    As a librarian I am a bit on the fence about things like that. I think we do need to preserve history about how things used to look. But on the other hand, voice and color correcting isn't as bad as the things Lucas would try to do, hehe.

    The animated movie in CGI seems possible. It's only Seventy-Five minutes long.
    Replace some of the older designs. With some Masterpiece and Generations toys designs.

    I would love a DVD boxset with the original error version, and a new version with all the corrections. Why not?

    IDW is having trouble getting the colors right in the comic reprints though, so I wouldn't hold my breath for a cartoon.

    A re-dub of Armada with way less human scenes, and a tweaked script would be great.

    I absolutely hated dude's voice in Armada... Ugh

    I love his UT voice as much as his BW voice.

    I guess it would be cool if they did More Than Meets the Eye as someone said, but I feel like it would be impossible to find someone that would re-do the entire series without it costing a fortune.

    If they are going to put money into something G1, I'd rather have a few new episodes rather then altering the existing shows. As seen with Star Wars, it will just lead to bitching and childhood violations. Its been 15 years and people still whine that Greedo shoots first. Get the F over it bitches. I'd rather this NOT happen with TF.

    I would still love a G1 series of what happened between Season 2 and the 1986 Movie. I also wish the 1986 Movie would be redone with all the storyboard content, the way it was meant to be. Would love to see "Predaking" in Anibot colors.
