    I'm talking about a show, cartoon, comic series, etc, that needs its treatment in physical form like how Studio Series is to the movies.
    Accuracy, scale and different price points.

    Beast Wars, specifically the Transmetals, Fuzors and Transmetal 2's.

    Voted Animated, but would rather see bits and pieces from different lines. Animated Wasp, a good Prime Knock-Out, and so on.

    Honestly I'd probably be happy with a good Wasp and Knock-Out.

    The plastic quality on the Animated and Prime figures was quite nice, plus they were fun and solid for the most part. I can't really see a Studio Series for them doing anything but make them smaller and less durable.

    My vote goes to Beast Wars, any iteration. While some were very well built and can stand the test of time, the screen accuracy wasn't all that great.

    This. They got the vast majority of Animated and Prime characters right the first time around.

    I voted WFC/FOC, because I think there's a lot untapped there.

    My vote goes to Beast Wars. Since the majority of Generations is G1 based, a dedicated BW series might be the best way to finish getting the rest of the BW cast in Generations style. And after the abysmal lack of love BW got from Hasbro for its 20th anniversary, a BW Studio Series would be great for its upcoming 25th.

    Beast Wars, by a country mile. Let's have a new, unified Beast continuity that incorporates all of the Japanese Beast shows. They could easily get a Studio Series-sized line out of that.

    I clicked the button for Beast Wars, but I've got no interest in the Beast Machines portion.

    Why not all?

    Call it Transformers: Vector Sigma Collection. Each year one series save for G1 and the film's gets the focus. Release main characters, tie in a few to the Main Line (for example during Animated's year do a G1 style Bulkhead in the main line).

    This. Granted I'd love to see a BW line more but ideally every TF series should get their own studio series.

    I like Studio Series, but the Deluxe's are too small; The current War for Cybertron is much better with scale, Especially if there is a Gimmick.

    This is basically what line do you want to be remade.

    I'm kinda torn between Beast Wars and RID2001. There is a lot of Potential in past Transformer series other than G1.

    animated, would love to have the main cast redone to be scaled properly.

    Also, there were so many characters that were never put in plastic that I want. Team char, Rodimus's team, all the background characters on cybertron, grandus, rattrap, all the starscream clones, all the different bumblebee recolors.

    so much I want, damn


    IDW would be great too.

    Transformers Prime but for the love of god I know scale is the "be all, end all" these days but PLEASE start with bigger deluxes that can ACCOMODATE all the required engineering for accuracy without compromising stability nor feeling cheap and fiddly as fuck. Then scale up from there accordingly.
