Ideas for Classics wave 4?

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

That takes half the fun out of it!


Plus it would be more expensive that way. :-(


Plus I only have "credit card" and it's my bank debit card
(it takes the money out of checking account)and I'm sure as hell not using it online.

My personal policy with buying anything online if they don't take Money Orders then I'm not going to deal with them.

As someone recently said to me "Hasbro may put Classics on pause for the release of the movie toys as they don't want the 2 lines competeing against each other" and that could be true. They may not want 2 lines of the same product out on the market at the same time, especially when one has an upcoming movie to boast for it. Once the movie dies down, and if Bay's film doesn't kill off the franchise, Classics will probably resume production.


Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the new Transformers cartoon supposed to begin airing in November? Hasbro is not going to want to have a competing line running with their movie line, after the movie comes out, be it good or bad. I think that the movie line will run up until the new cartoon begins, that way they are able to capitalize on the movie as much as possible, with both the big screen release and the DVD release. The reason we got the classics line was because there was no T.V. show on the air to help bring in the kids buying the toys, and they did not want to release the movie toys 6 months early. What really put the nail in the coffin for the classics line is the post that had an updated list of the movie figures. That list had Grimlock, Thundercracker, and Arcee, who are not even supposed to be in the movie. So I don't really see the classics line going much further after Devastator is released.

I would like to see them continue the line, but do it online. Since most of the characters that are being brought up are G1 then I don't see why Hasbro cannot just make the new figures available on their website. Most kids do not even know who a lot of the characters that are being updated really are.


Correct me if I'm wrong but in the past two years I've seen always at least 3 of the followings on the shelves at the same time: Energon, Universe, Alternator, Cybertron, Titanium and Classic.

Last time I went to the local shop there were the last four of them. (not counting the older toys on sale like Armada Laserbeak...)

Personally I don't understand why the Titatiums are still getting new molds. And I don't see why Movie toys, Cartoon toys and classics couldn't be there at the same time. Where is the competition here? It's Hasbro who sells all them anyway.

They should ditch the Titaniums line and continue the Classics.

I see a damn good reason- Not all of us can order online, and the rest of us overseas buyers probably don't want to wait three months for a figure that would normally cost us $20, which in this instance cost us $40 plus $20 postage.

my guess is they fear (with good reason) that the other lines (the cartoon and classics) would shadow the movie toys, because for the most part, the movie toys look like crap compared to the classics.

I think the best idea for Wave 4 of the Classics, is for there to be a 4th wave of classics. I'm sure if they make one, whomever they choose will probably be cool.

Ironhide and Rachet by the way :P

Lets try to stick to the topic at hand everyone. If you'd like to talk about why Hasbro is doing what they're doing feel free to start a new thread about it.

For wave four I would like to see the following:

Voyager:

Galvatron - new mould
Broadside - Stormbringer design

Deluxe:

Blitzwing
Thundercracker
Sideswipe
Wheeljack

If it we were lucky enough to see a wave five

Voyager:

Power Master Trailer for Prime

Deluxe:

Red Alert - Sideswipe repaint
Sunstreaker - Wheeljack remould / repaint

What I'd like to see?

Some of the Autobot cars. Jazz and Prowl particularly... Like others have mentioned; Ratchet, more Deluxe Dinobots... Maybe the Predacons?

Oh, AND MONSTERBOTS! Classics Doublecross would kick ASS. :grin:
