I see. So your question is not why Shattered Glass universe or why exclusives or why Hasbro but "Why does Funpub not make more obscure G1 characters instead of creating new characters?" Why not more Club Punch/Counterpunch, Runabout, Runamuck instead of Shattered Glass Prime, SG Cyclonus or SG Drift? The anwers are many and varied. One reason is that the club wants to try offering something different as to appeal to a wide variety of fans. The second reason is that the clubs doesn't want to get burnt too often. Chances of a Hasbro mass release shattered glass pimre = 0%. Chances of a Hasbro Thundercracker, Kup, Scourge, etc. . . > 0%. Hasbro has been moving more and more into the obscure characters suchs as evidence by Thunderwing and Straxus. They are even retooling the heads now per Skullgrin and Junkion. The club needs to continue to differentiate itself. As to why SG Drift and Runabout and Runamuck? Hasbro has already used both of these molds twice. Thunderwing, Wreck-gar and any Warpath or Perceptor repaints will only be the second use.
