I'd love me some DJD and Scavengers. While we're at it, Pharma and Overlord would be most welcome.

WfC Decepticon carbots (Breakdown and Barricade). Seriously, their alt modes and bot modes are awesome. Make it happen in shiny metallic/metal flake paint Takara :D!

I think the forthcoming Barricade in TFS 2.0 is meant to be Aligned Barricade. Which is a shame.

Breakdown I could see, but he'd most likely be a retool of the Jazz mold.

In addition to those two I'd like to see FOC Quake (from Fall of Cybertron's Escalation mode), WFC Drag Strip, and WFC Dead End.

And maybe a WFC Ironhide and Warpath, just to even the sides out a little. ;)

Looking at a bunch of images online, Barricade in WfC looks almost perfect as a retool of Prime Wheeljack to me, including in bot mode:

I think Breakdown is very similar, but either a different mold or more likely at least a heavy retooling:

Either way, I think Wheeljack would have worked much better as an Aligned Barricade than as Chromedome. I'm still wondering why they did a Chromedome anyway. It seems kinda random to me to bring a Headmaster into it, but I guess it's probably because he's popular right now because of the comics or something (I don't read em' so I don't know, but I do recall some discussions about Chromedome in the new IDW comics a while back).

Exactly. Chromedome and Rewind are getting figures to capitalize on the popularity of their comic appearances. There's nothing more to it than that.

And while Wheeljack's car mode DOES look quite advanced, it doesn't quite look alien enough to be a Cybertronian vehicle. I feel much the same way about Cybertronian Jazz's vehicle mode, but it's a better fit.

Hell, screw it. Just wish for new molds for all of them. Barricade, Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, and Quake! :D

And also the generic fliers and ground troops. And titans. And bruisers. And leapers.

Obviously, there's a lot that could be released but when you specify Takara I generally think of Encore and Masterpiece. Being that I am only a casual MP buyer, I'd say Encore Trypticon and/or Scorponok top my personal list.

Hehe, yep, and United Scourge works as "Scourge" himself, then you can just troop build with Hasbro Scourges to be the Sweeps :).

Then if you're truly hardcore you can get the Takara EHobby exclusive United Scourge and use him as the Starscream-possessed Scourge :P.

I dunno, if you look at just the outline of the vehicles and compare them to Prime Wheeljack, they're virtually the same. I think a bit of kibble added to the front end for Barricade and a different paintjob would have done the trick for vehicle mode along with a new head for bot mode (obviously). He even has the two bits sticking up behind his head just like TF:Prime Wheeljack in bot mode and their shoulders look nearly identical and even appear to share much the same transformation scheme. If I didn't know better, I'd say that TF:Prime Wheeljack was designed based on the WfC Barricade model (and I don't know better so it's entirely possible IMO :P).

Masterpiece Arcee and a new MP Megatron.

Masterpiece Armada Megatron. I'm not even that bothered if they do an Optimus Prime (as cool as he was) Armada Megatron deserves a Masterpiece. That design was so goddamn awesome, he deserves more than just the somewhat brickish Armada toy and the obvious afterthought Generations Megatron remold (as nice as the homage is, it just doesn't look enough like the real thing).

Generations Seacons. I mention this on the Takara thread specifically because I think Hasbro would do a questionable job on them, and they deserve proper treatment with good Takara engineering. Scramble City and weapon modes a must.

Reissue Liokaiser. Goddamnit why have these guys not been reissued? Engineering wise they are without a doubt the best G1-period combiner team ever- literally the only piece of combiner kibble is the head, AND he looks badass! Hopefully they'll be able to fix poor Killbison's GPS.

Reissue G2 Electro. If the molds still exist, this guy deserves a re-release with non-leprous plastic and less fragile rubber bands. He was way ahead of his time and the mold deserves to be liberated from his disease.

Device Label Bumblebee. You could probably very easily convert the original G1 Bumblebee mold to fit in a USB drive, seeing as he's mostly hollow and very simple. Also he'd be the most fun USB drive ever.

SachielScream from the TF/Evangelion crossover. I don't care how you do it, it must be done.
