I'm guessing distance past might refer to Orion Pax and maybe Alpha Trion.
You and me both! I want a Star Saber!!
They're definitely doing some kind of character that'll fit into our Classics collection.
I for some reason don't see any trolls here, but thats neither here nor there.
Trailbreaker??? Gears???? Brawn?????
I think I will be going to my first Botcon.
i took distant past to mean Dinobots, dont get much more past than dinosaurs.
Thank good they arent doing Trailbreaker, Gears and Brawn. Worst chjoices they cold make because you know they are on the Hasbro short list.
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.
Queue wallet explosions in 2012.
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)
pretty much every cassette bot
5/6 of the Throttlebots
... ok I'm stopping there. List is WAY longer than I thought it would be.
LOL - watch it be Devastator.
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.
