    Should've used Don Fig's Optimus Prime design from Ongoing for the 30th Anniversary Generations Voyager Prime.

    Should've used Alex Milne's MTMTE Megatron design for Generation's Megatron design especially since the upper body design does wonders for the Armada Megatron retool.

    IDW Stealth Bomber Megatron should have been at least Voyager sized.

    They could repaint Generations Whirl into a voyager HFTD Tomahawk

    Speaking of Tomahawk,

    Could've released a AOE Deluxe Drift two pack, with the regular deluxe, and remolded Tomahawk, just replace the missile launchers with swords, change the head, new colors, and boom ur done.

    Should've- Human Alliance Jazz should have been tweaked like HA Bee was to get us a new Deluxe Movie Jazz

    Would've- Repaint WFC Deluxe Soundwave, retool the shoulders and chest a bit, and we get WFC Ironhide.

    Good idea on Ironhide. I've always wanted a WFC Ironhide but I would prefer an HA Jazz over a deluxe one

    Should have repainted Cybertron Ransack into Wheelie. He is tiny, has the cap head thing going on, has the chest flap that looks like the windshield, and he would actually be able to do an effin wheelie! Oh, yeah, if you take the spring gimmick out of his gun it looks like a big ass slingshot with the barrels sticking up too. All the dinobot overload stuff going on got me thinking about it.

    Should've repainted ROTF Stratosphere as Cybertron Sky Shadow, and include that shuttle/gun attachment.

    Should: Redecoed Cybertron Hardtop/Swindle to Ruckus

    Would: Pretooled Generations Blur & Generations Kup to have had cybertronian molds (so you either by the earth mode or the cybertronian mode but figure is basically the same except slightly different kibble)

    I am not sure how many I have that aren't already mentioned, but I'll back up previous votes, all the same.

    S:

    TFP Hardshell should have been a Voyagers
    WFC Optimus and Megs should have been Voyagers
    TFP Airachnid should have been a Voyager triple changer
    All 4 Terrorcon limbs as Deluxes
    Hun-gerr as a Voyager (am I really the first one to mention this?)

    W:

    TFP Starscream repainted as Thundercracker and Skywarp (dump any 2 of the garbage Beast Hunters repaints/remolds)
    TFP Knock Out repainted as Dead End
    TFP Vehicon retooled as Wildrider
    Beast Hunters Prime retooled as Motor Master (lose the dumb ass jetpack and goofy cow catcher grill)
    Beast Hunters Smokescreen retooled as Drag Strip (options are limited with TFP, so it was either Smoke or Jackie)
    TFP Predaking heavily retooled as Grimlock (basically picturing Grimlock and the other Dinobots as Autobot-aligned Predacons, here)

    IDW megatron REALLY should've been a voyager.. i absolutely love that mold. it's bomber mode is practically perfect, and the robot mode looks great. it would've been a perfect voyager.

    also.. the upcoming leader megatron.. i REALLY would've preferred that to be a voyager as well. being a leader doesn't quite fit in a classics type line.. it worked very well for transformers animated, but not classics.

    though.. judging by the most recent photo takara released with legends megatron next to MP10.. i imagine some people, who aren't getting the 3rd party megatron, may display it in their masterpiece collection.

    Im not as dedicated to building a classics collection, yet, but I totally agree on Megatron, as I would love to put him next to my CW Prime, which is the closest my collection gets to a classics/G1 Prime, at the moment.

    Should've - Blackout BLACKOUT BLACKOUT. The single greatest failure of the movie line to me was HasTak skipping a leader class design for what is easily the most impressive Transforming helicopter to date.

    Would've - Movie Prowl from Battle Blades Bumblebee. I wouldn't mind Bee stealing Prowl's general design if Prowl at least got a remold out of it.

    Titanium Ultra Magnus should be scaled down and released as a Legends figure so Titan Metroplex can have his City Commander. (Kind of like how the Kabaya kit is based on the Titanium)

    Either Legends Cosmos (preferably the first) should be redecoed into Scrounge.

    Should have: Leader Megatron or Deluxe Starscream to Voyager. One or the other.

    Would have: Whirl with new head and hands to Armada Cyclonus.
