    What is "the beast within"? Cos I can only think of an episode of BW and I don't recall the dinobots being in that.

    "The Beast Within" was a fan made comic or an official Dreamwave comic of the Generation One Transformers.
    In the start of it, the Decepticons were brutally slaughtering the Autobots.
    However, Grimlock disobeyed Prime's orders and combined with the Dinobots to form... A LIVING NIGHTMARE!!!
    The Dinobots really overkilled the Decepticons that day.
    Predaking sliced in two.
    Devastator's arm torn off.
    Bruticus killed with Devastator's arm.
    Menasor torn open from spinal cord to his waist.
    The Sweeps were obliterated.
    So many kills.

    We've already had a couple Dinobots compromised for the sake of combining. While I like Energon Grimlock, I'd rather avoid making compromises so a "G1 Redux" toy could do something the original didn't. Decent articulation would be enough IMO.

    I wanna see: Bumblebee, and Soundwave. Since rumors say we're already getting them, Ironhide/Ratchet, Jazz, and 'movie-style' Arcee would be cool.

    Good point about the Bumbebee and Soundwave.
    I nearly forgot to add these fellows onto my list:
    Wheelie (Come on, people! For the final time, he did unleash a Freshman beatdown on the Decepticons. He grabbed them by the back and broke their spines with his head. :D )
    Fortress Maximus (He could've been made 6 inches smaller just to be articulated and affordable)
    The Minibots
    Twincast (Show accuracy needed)
    Headmasters (More articulated and show accurate. If only there was a bootleg one for $1, then I can do a kit bash on it) :banghead: 
    Targetmasters (Sureshot, Pointblank, Crosshairs, Triggerhappy, Misfire, and Slugslinger)
    The Godmasters/Powermasters(Same idea as above)
    Brainmasters(Same idea as above)
    Sixshot, Sixknight, & Great Shot (Needs lots of articulation)

    okay my three Gen1 remakes-
    God Ginrai- fully articulated, show accurate transformation, plus ball joined large head for super mode. oh yeah full articulation for god bomber too.
    Starsaber- full articulation

    Scourge and the sweeps- with the articulation design of the Marvel legends figures but with the wings able to unfold all the way out.

    Thats essentially what im trying to say.
    Ditch the old toy, but use it as a source of inspiration for the way it transforms. Skyfire, especially his cockpit, looked alot like Cybertron Starscream.

    1. Grimlock, but big Supreme Sized (Unicron or thereabouts).
    2. Warpath maybe a bit smaller than Grimlock, big kick ass tank
    3. Tracks, realistic alt mode, but with the flying car mode reinstated (Fold-up wheels like BTTFII, + wings + guns, this would be my dream car).

    Because at the moment, Tracks is bigger than Warpath, who is tiny. And Grimlock, is ginormous compared to Warpath and only slightly bigger than Tracks, its all wrong....

    I'm a little confused here... are we talking about Neo-G1/TFclassics figures we'd make? because if that lineup we saw a while back is at all accurate, then all these mentions of Grimlock, Megatron, Bumblebee, etc. are pretty redundant (seeing as how they're in the proposed lineup already).
    If we're just adding to the lineup, Jazz would be my first choice (still hoping he's one of those "to be decided" figures though) with Swoop being next on my list. After that, I'm not sure which one I'd pick (too many good candidates).

    If the first dozen figures do well enough to warrant a new series of them, it'd be pretty cool to see Galvatron, Scourge, and Cyclonus all get some sweet updaes.

    I would love to see GOOD figures that are true to the TF:TM designs for the new characters:

    Springer
    Kup
    Blur
    Arcee
    Hot Rod
    Ultra magnus (even if he does suck monkey balls)
    Wreck Gar
    Rodimus Prime

    Galvatron
    Cyclonus
    Scourge

    Articulated, faithful versions of all these dudes who got screwed in toy for would be brilliant.

    ONLY THREE.... damn

    #1. Ratchet/Ironhide mold. (SHOW ACCURATE)
    #2. Ultra Magnus, not just Magnus, I want a combinable fully articulated trailer that doesn't look like crap.

    #3. Wooh Boy... Skyfire, Sky Lnyx, Omega Supreme, or Arcee.....
    um.... ARCEE in show accurate car form, she deserves it.

    Skyfire
    Omega
    Sky Lnyx
    Thundercracker + brothers
    Blitzwing (dual transformation show/real accuracies) no kibble.

    I'd also like to see some of the minibots done a bit bigger and more articulated, my take on them is that they shouldn't feel like minicons.

    i imagine, this, "classics" line will be updated forms too, so, no longer should soundwave, be a tape recorder, he should be like a cd/dvd recorder/player.

    it's just that, as much as i would like a new soundwave, that looks like the original, i just think that it should not be a tape recorder, because those days, are long over. it's been 20 years since g1, and the new guys need to show it. so maybe instead of Thundercracker/seekers being f-15's, they should be, f-22's, just a thought.

    So hard to pick only three, but I guess Ultra Magnus, Shockwave, and Cyclonus. I think a cartoon accurate Cyclonus would be great.

    Only 3?!?! Screw that! I want all 7 Insecticons, damn it! Of course if we can ONLY have 3, then Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Kickback (the original Insecticons) will do.
