    We have 2 decent hounds. The universe 2008 toy and the siege toy.

    We have a good ironhide/ratchet. Just got then I siege.

    Meanwhile, we still don't have a good modern toy for Longtooth, Grandus, Squeezeplay, or Monstructor.

    There is more to Transformers than the diaclone repaints

    Can Ironhide be an Earth van now? That's the only thing lacking with Siege Ironhide

    None, IMO. We already got good toys of those characters just last year. That’s why I’m not very interested in ER, too many characters we already got, not enough new stuff.

    None. I don't want the same characters from the previous line. Give us new ones and move on.

    Chromia so she can be less like the PotP fem limb.

    Well Megatron is almost a given for any line, I wouldn't mind a new Ultra Magnus if it's even better than Siege, that would make GUOP even MORE unique but ultimately, preferably NONE.

    There are still other characters in more need of a G1 update such as Star Saber, Cosmos, Warpath, Sandstorm, Roller, Deathsaurus, Pipes, Percy, Blitzwing, Octane etc

    There's a Selects listing rumored for Ratchet but if it's JUST a repaint I'd hope for Animated Ratchet from Trailbreaker and save a G1 Ratchet for a new van mold.

    Or maybe a Transformers Go Decepticon Ratchet with the movie green colors and evil monocle from Takara's Decepticon Ratchet.

    I liked how Takara was on a small kick of creating evil versions of characters that used Bayverse color schemes like with Decepticon Skyfire and Decepticon Ratchet. The Bay color schemes are just plain more ominous.

    It was an inventory system leak.

    Or were you asking for pics of Animated or Go Ratchet?

    I swapped WFC in for Earthrise. I don't necessarily need to see them so soon, it can be in the next chapter or beyond.

    Ironhide and Ratchet would be atop my list like most other fans. They were 2 of the cooler figures in Siege, which was littered with amazing toys, yet we still don't have very cool versions of their earth modes we all know so well from the lore.

    Ultra Magnus 100%, but wait until Chapter 3. Unicron should be coming and there's a good chance Metroplex shows up as well! So hell yeah make "City Commander" then to get them all at once.

    Soundwave was great in Siege, loved the design and the paint apps. A cassette player is coming eventually.

    Still need Jazz, Tracks and Skids of the 84-85 car bots, along with most of the minibots, Perceptor, Blaster, and Blitzwing. I am not expecting combiners right now, nor most of the other sub-teams. We do see Junkion on one map, so Wreck-Gar seems obvious, and it seems a shame to re-release the Decepticon clones and not their Autobot counterparts.

    None tbh,we need new characters that haven't been updated since the 90s. However if I had to choose it'd be Ultra Magnus and Ratchet. Ultra Magnus desperately needs his own toy that's not a remold of Optimus and even though I have siege Ratchet I consider it stupid that he's an Walgreens exclusive. I didn't name any Decepticons because I'm not familiar with them, plus I'm assuming most Decepticons would be insulted and disgusted at the thought of taking an earthmode disguise

    Just Mirage, really. Wasn't impressed with the Seige version at all. Cheaty transformation, clear plastic, mega spoiler... Yeah, I saw him once and passed. No thanks.

    I still don't understand why they give us half the guys. For Siege I was expecting to see the entire 1984 lineup done with Cybertronian vehicles. We got all of the Decepticons in that form. Since we have moved on to Earth, I would still like to see the entire 1984 and 1985 Autobot cars and mini cars redone in WFC style, basically updating the originals. So for me, my list would be Ironhide, Ratchet, Jazz, Hound, Prowl, Bluestreak, Mirage, Sideswipe, Red Alert, Skids, Tracks, Huffer, Gears, Cosmos, and Warpath, with Blaster and Perceptor not being headmasters for the Autobots. We need a Soundwave in Earthrise, and I would say another Blitzwing that isn't a headmaster. I guess Sideswipe/Red Alert, Mirage and Hound's Cybertronian modes are Earth-like enough to pass, but to me not enough. Tracks from 2010 scales well with the others but he could use an update. Huffer, Gears, Cosmos, and Warpath need updating to look more like their original selves. To go past those lines, I would like to see an update to Sandstorm and Octane not as headmaster... maybe an Earth mode for Ultra Magnus that looks like Optimus. I know with Grapple and Cliffjumper, we're getting Inferno and Bumblebee, hopefully we can get Bumper, Hubcap, and Hauler. With these updates, to have a compete set less mix-matched across various lines, we can be done and move on to the other lines like others have requested (and give my wallet a rest).

    Oh and would be nice to have the Omnibots since we got the Powerdashers.

    Ironhide for sure. Seems harder to find than most of the other deluxe autobots, going for around $40 on ebay. While the exclusive Ratchet, I was able to get one for $30 shipped.

    Soundwave needs his boombox mode.

    And other G1 84 Season 1 bots that are missing, with animation accurate bot and alt modes.
