You get to create a wave of Generations - what's in it? (Pure thought experiment)

    The Generations line has been one that's caused quite a bit of controversy lately, and I think we all have our imaginary fantasy lineup of characters we'd like to see be done (or re-done properly) in this line.

    So, for this purpose, a thought experiment for you all:

    By some cosmic fluke you've been given the chance to be in charge at Hasbro or Takara. For one wave of Transformer toys only you get to call all the shots. You get to pick what characters are selected for the wave, what accessories they come with, what gimmicks they do and don't have... the works.

    There are, however, a couple of rules to keep things from going too far:

    * You get to pick/create a maximum of five deluxes for your wave. If you want to include a voyager or larger toy, it will replace two deluxes. So for example five deluxe toys, three deluxe toys and one voyager, two voyagers and one deluxe. Super-ultra-mega-sized are off-limits (think larger than leader class).

    * Since it's a "Generations" type of wave you can include characters and concepts from all over Transformer history. Though of course, Prime toys still have their own toyline so that may be a bit redundant.

    * Since you're in charge, we will pretend that every toy you pick for inclusion will be done "right". No unsuitable mold reuse, to cheap repaints, no poor likenesses. Everything will be done the way you dictate.

    So, let's hear it. What does your personal wave look like? What gimmicks, decos and accessories do they have?

    I'll post my choices a bit later so as not to influence things early.
