I wonder if we're going to get a Skyscorcher?

Will they use the G2 symbols? Or is hasbro stuck on G1 symbols to the exclusion of everything else?

I was thinking the same thing myself. I'm hoping for G2 symbols in this case. I wonder what is going to classify them as G2 (fiction-wise).
I kinda figured that if they were going to do G2, that we'd get the obscure characters and not repaints like Black Sideswipe. I'm kinda hoping against hope for a G2 Ramjet color deco though.
Also just read the TFwiki for Rapido...hmmm, has the highest possible rank in the autobot army...interesting. Still hoping for Pyro from Cyb Optimus Prime!

It was released in England both without the G2 banner and later as part of the G2 line.
Me? I'm still holding my breath for some Japanese series characters to be included like, oh I don't know... METALHAWK!!!!
Or at least to be sure they're not making them os I can make my own!

I think they can have a nice mix of known characters versus unknown.
Classics Hound as G2 Swindle?
G2 Ramjet would be very, very excellent.
It would be cool to see almost anything. I am so glad to hear that they took my suggestion for a G2 set!!!

Of course if the fiction is set during G1, but they have G2 characters in it, it would make sense for them to have G1 symbols on them. If Fub Publications recent use of Deluge and Jetstorm in The Coming Storm is any indication, they will have G1 symbols.

And for the record, I like the Prowl mold. It's just as good as the Sunstreaker mold. The only problem I have with it is the door wings can get in the way. Why do people not like this mold?

Ah old memories.

AND DAMMIT I WANT A G2 MENASOR AND G2 DEFENSOR SET!!! Please!
NOW we're talking!!!!!
Posted by Bed Bugs on March 19th, 2010 @ 11:29am CDT
I need to get this set. I'm willing to bet it won't all be G2 either. I'm thinking they are also going to mix in late G1 figures too as a G1.5, which is fine by me too.
I'm still hoping for Energon Bulkhead as G2 Powerdive. It's a PERFECT fit for a G2 set, and the mold has yet to be used...

The problem with the G1 spillover characters is that a LOT of them made appearances during Shattered Glass (Grimlock, Sideswipe, Jazz)
Another cool idea would be a Legends 3-pack of chromed up Bumblebee, Cliffjumper and Beachcomber.
Of course, the Purple Ramjet has to be at the top of my wishlist.
