You have a fair choice in toys for some characters already. In being "similar to their G1 appearance" you should look into either the Classics lines, or Masterpiece. Masterpiece Ultra Magnus is about to be released in Japan, and Masterpiece Prowl can be fund in your local Toys 'R Us (though reportedly importing the Japanese version is cheaper).
Classics, Universe and Generations can be a better alternative. All characters you mentioned have received reimagined and updated toys, although Ultra Magnus is a mere Optimus repaint (both times!) Prowl and Brawn especially look like G1:

With that said, Hasbro is not going to redo characters so quickly, but Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and now Jetfire are getting or have gotten new versions. So who knows?
