    Should've made ROTF Soundwave a voyager.

    Would've repainted Gen Legends Starscream into the other Seekers. We're getting Acidstorm, but you'd think they'd have done TC and SW by now.

    Should've
    - IDW Orion Pax and Megatronus should've been Voyagers.
    - There should've been a TF Prime Weaponizer Megatron, there's an Optimus and a Bumblebee (with 2 repaints so far).


    Would've
    - TFU Legends Bumblebee redecoed into Bugbite, there's a Deluxe version.
    - G1 Pretender/Legends Bumblebee repainted into Cliffjumper, the face is more similar to his anway.

    Would have been nice. I know Takara made a Nemesis Prime from the WfC mold that looks pretty kewl.

    Now you have me wondering how the FoC version might have looked like.

    DAMN! Beat me to it. :) 

    Ok, lets see..

    Should've - DOTM Guzzle should've been AT LEAST a Deluxe class figure

    Would've - First movie Incinerator repainted a "Military green" for Springer

    (Could've) HasTak "could've" added hands to the Incinerator mold that folded into the engines

    Should've: Universe Galvatron should have been a voyager, I will concede to that.

    So many "should've"s.

    WFC Optimus should've been a Voyager. Turning that line into Deluxe-only killed so much potential.

    FOC Onslaught should've been a Voyager. No excusing this one.

    FOC Shockwave, also Voyager.

    For the added caveat, I could've done without Soundwave & Soundblaster as there was already the previous WFC Deluxe.

    I still wish there would've been a G1 redeco of Cybertron Metroplex.

    Yeah.... Blackout.
    Should have given the HFTD Leader Starscream mold some wrist swivels.
    Should have dropped DOTM Leader Bee and gave that Leader toy slot to DOTM Megatron or Shockwave instead.
    Should have made Generations Trailbreaker and Hoist at Voyager class size.
    Should have kept Generations Nightbeat with the original idea of using the RTS Jazz mold (the Generations Bumblebee/Goldbug mold is terrible).
    Should have offered Generations Tailgate as a white repaint/redeco of RTS Windcharger.
    Should have never have brought Kawamori onboard the Masterpiece line to futz with the MP-03 Seeker mold (keeping the original Kobayashi design instead of remaking it into MP-11 later down the road).
