    Being redone but not in the best possible way is still being redone.
    Being redone but as a Takara, Club or Convention exclusive is still being redone.
    Being redone but not at your preferred size class is still being redone.


    The four Pretender beasts - Catilla, Chainclaw, Carnivac and Snarler.
    The two Mega Pretenders - Skyhammer and Roadblock
    The Ultra Pretenders - Vroom, Crossblades and Blue Bacchus

    I know there are many more, but I will let others contribute.

    Most of them are Japanese, which is a bit unfair to Hasbro. So I'll stay out of those.
    But there's still, of note and off the top of my head...

    Pretender Waverider,
    Targetmasters Pointblank and Sureshot
    Deluxe Insecticons Ransack and Barrage. And I'd even throw in Venom since "Venin" was less a Venom homage and more its own thing.
    The rest of the Throttlebots besides Chase and Goldbug
    Omnibots Downshift and Camshaft. Overdrive technically got one in Alternators but I'd like to see a proper Generations style update.

    For one thing we got plenty of Euro G1 characters like the TurboMasters and Predators ripe for updates.

    Boy, I wish. Unfortunately, most of those characters are giant question marks in the States and even a bit in Japan. At best, Hasbro will pick and choose randomly.

    But I think there's a case to be made for the Axelerators and the Skyscorchers as both sides of the pond got those. The biggest question would be to go pink or not on the windows.

    Those aren't bad options for Hasbro to do. I'm hoping that Hasbro will at least do Thunderclash and Sky Quake since they're the most well known of the Euro group especially if we can get their respective Machine wars and Universe repaints from them too.

    Unfortunately, Universe Menasor never came to fruition. Honestly, he makes a better Shattered Glass Machine Wars Optimus Prime.

    I know that but if there's anything Selects has shown us so far it's that they're not afraid to look into canceled repaints to use too. So there's still a chance for Universe Menasor to show up in Selects even if it's not much.

    Iguanus. Might be the Predacon from Beast Wars.
    Bugly
    Finback. Though Energon Sharkticon resembles Stormbringer Finback.
    Stranglehold. Just give us the inner robot.
    Snapdragon would have counted before this year.
    Landfill
    Backstreet
    Pincer
    Longtooth
    Doubleheader
    Gripper
    Flame
    Lightspeed. Not the Technobot.
    Skyfall
    Rollout
    Charger
    Mainframe
    Bumper
    Boss
    Flash
    Hurricane
    Snare and the other Predators
    Stalker

    Gutcruncher and Rad were homaged but not redone as themselves. Same with G2 Hooligan who I'd love to see repainted from CW Leader Jetfire.

    Gutcruncher's Stratojet was made a Decepticon in the IDW comics. Be nice to see him/it get the treatment that Ironworks' base has gotten in Earthrise bring made a Transformer and given a Transforming toy.

    Sizzle, Fizzle, Flamefeather and Sparkstalker were repainted in G2 but they've never gotten new toys.

    Do E-hobby characters like Detritus and Deep Cover count as G1 in this thread? If so, some haven't been redone:

    Clampdown
    Deep Cover
    Hauler
    Detritus
    Gabroil
    Overcharge. Titans Return Blitzwing would have been perfect.
    Shothole and the other Insecticon clones.
    Omega Sentinel
