    I'm guessing distance past might refer to Orion Pax and maybe Alpha Trion.

    They're definitely doing some kind of character that'll fit into our Classics collection.

    well they did Alpha Trion, but they've also done DION so I would TOTALLY be down for an Orion Pax.

    So..... here totally out there nonsense suggestion. Take thunderwing and Warpath, remold them and repaint them as Overlords two parts. Anyone want to Photoshop that? If they really loved us it'd be http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/transtopia-masterclass-masterforce-overlord/20386/

    Maybe we're getting WFC Dyno-bots?

    Hm if you're an 80s fan, one character is a must-have? Who was so popular in the 80s that hasn't gotten an update yet?

    Sounds like this is seriously going to be like Games of Deception, definitely classics related.

    yeah, i got excited until they said they ARE NOT doing them... good joke though, got my super excited... but maybe Hasbro will do them soon.

    ooh, that'd be cool... i still think a repaint of Cybertron Megs with a new head would be the best Overlord.

    Ok, so I'll try to make a list of G1 guys who haven't gotten any kind of official update ever. (Excluding 3rd party.) Also, please correct any f-ups, I will likely miss some things. I'm listing characters that haven't had an homage (Ani Blitzwing, Energon Omega) but discounting things like movie Brawn.

    Reflector (planned Perceptor repaint, release uncertain afaik)
    Sludge
    Snarl (steggy)
    Hoist
    Skids
    Blaster
    Twin Twist
    Top Spin
    Kickback
    Shrapnel
    Bombshell
    Ransack
    Barrage
    Chopshop
    Venom
    Broadside
    Metroplex
    Sky Lynx
    Hubcap
    Swerve
    Outback
    Tailgate
    Pipes
    Defensor
    Predaking
    pretty much every cassette bot
    Computron
    5/6 of the Throttlebots
    Fort Max
    Chromedome
    Brainstorm
    Doublecross
    Grotusque
    Repugnus


    ... ok I'm stopping there. List is WAY longer than I thought it would be.

    I guess Dinobots. 5 Dinobots, and 5 box set toys. And they've never been done before. But what molds could be used as Dinobots?

    I don't know if it counts, but

    Snarl - got an update as an Action Master
    Blaster - got an update as a Device Label figure
    Defensor - got an update as a Micromaster combiner

    most likely they're out.

    Ha ha, that little tease was brilliant. However, they did say that their chosen characters are "equally awesome." IMPORTANT INFO THERE! Someone gimme a news credit! ;) 

    I'm guessing that they will fit thematically with Runabout and Runamuck, so...late G1 semi-obscure characters? Certainly not unfamiliar ground for the Club, but nothing wrong with that.

    Probably will be bitching over this set, but it's implicit that they aren't trying to "finish Generations" like GoD aspired to "finish Classics." I know there is some disagreement, but I think Runabout/Runamuck are well out of the range of "mainstream" characters that they are deliberately leaving to Hasbro.

    As for the "'80s" hint...well, talk about a non-hint. This whole franchise is based around '80s nostalgia. Must be something I'm missing here.
