    We seem to be getting a Siege Apeface,at least. I'm guessing that Snapdragon and Scorponok (since he's one of the few options left as a Titan at this rate) aren't too far behind.
    WFC Siege Voyager Apeface?

    Has to be some Euro-G1 and G2 stuff. My avatar, Talon, would be the obvious choice but I'd also love to see the following characters redone:

    Hurricane
    G2 Staxx
    G2 Road Rocket
    Zap
    Tornado
    Aqua Speeders Jetstorm
    G2 Ransack


    Basically my childhood toys.

    Which two, I mean I know Nautica and Thunderblast did but Thunderblast was back in Armada. Now if you're talking Novastar, I could have sworn that she and this Firestar are two completely different characters. I thought these five were created as completely new characters.

    Could've sworn when these five were created that their designer named her Firestar, not realizing there had already been a character with that name. Especially since she had not been mentioned even since the creation of Flareup. But eh, maybe I'm wrong.

    I don’t know the behind the scenes stuff, but she at the very least is considered to be based on g1 firestar given her colors and that she’s a female “cybertronian”

    I'd love to see new, legitimate transforming figures for the Decepticon Pretenders such as Skullgrin, Thunderwing, and Bludgeon. I think they could make for some really interesting and cool figures! Besides, Bludgeon in particular is way too popular of a character to not have a new toy at this point.

    Oh yeah, it'd also be great to see new figures for the Decepticon Headmasters, particularly Snapdragon a.k.a. "The Daniel Mauler"

    Firestar/Novastar is the G1 character; Flareup is the more recent character created to stand in for her.

    I could always go for another Bludgeon.

    I know that, I was saying that I had read some where (been a bit) that when the artist behind the new five (Proxima, Javelin, Roadmaster, Velocity, and Firestar) made them he had not known of the G1 Firestar and created her as a new character, then one of the writers pointed out the fact that there was at one point a G1 Firestar who was replaced by Flareup because of trademark reasons. these five were created as essentially female versions of five male Autobots Proima-Preceptor, Velocity-Blurr, I can't remember Roadmaster or Javelin's, and Fiestar-Hot Rod.
    Again I may be wrong and this could fall under a personal 'Mandela Effect' moment. Eh, either way. I still want figures based around these designs (and better figures for Thnderblast and Nautica).

    Thunderwing and Bludgeon are pretty high on the list for me- Stormbringer was one of the main things that got me into Transformers after the movie, so they've stuck with me for a long time. The Titan Master Thunderwing and Prime Master Bludgeon were such teases, Hasbro should be disappointed in themselves :p 

    Flamewar is a favorite of mine as well, I'd love to see her get a figure soon too. C'mon, she's an easy repaint of Arcee! Besides, unless I'm completely blanking on one, while Takara has released plenty of them over the years, Hasbro hasn't released a single Decepticon fembot in CHUG since it started! (and no, POTP Cindersaur doesn't really count IMO)

    Agree 100%, both need some representation in the new trilogy. Especially Thunderwing.

    I'm not sure if this sentiment has been shared before but I would LOVE a new Mainframe. I'm a sucker for faceplated nobodies.
