Dude, that's pretty much what they're doing. Beastwars stuff in kingdom, Cybertron Optimus in Siege, cybertron hotshot in siege. Armada starscream in thrilling thirty, (admittedly a few years back now) Headmasters like apeface and snapdragon. You're really only arguing that Hasbro throttle back a bit on g1 homage and go with other corners of the franchise a bit more than they already are. Well there, I argue that they are giving people the most wanted and recognizable versions of these character. That argument cuts against me as well. Why has there been a whole subline the last two years dedicated to homaging the disgusting, cringey Bay verse and it's ugly designs? Well much as I am revulsed by it, I have to admit that, as sad an idea as it is, a lot of people, *gag repressing the need to vomit* grew up on those movies and their designs. (Jesus Christ.) I would love for Studio series to have been eliminated or way parred down so I could get more of what I want, but I have to admit that maintaining the Bayverse line, much as I hate to admit it, is another key part of Hasbro's brand management.
