This looks one of the better attempts at making Nightbird.
Still, being a non-transforming figure, getting it isn't very high on my list.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

That was available at TFcon a couple years back, and that one was clearanced out at BBTS for $30 pretty quick. Nice little toy too, but a little thin and floppy.

I have a theory that third parties now look at each other and go, "You did that? Nuh-uh, no you didn't! I'ma do it like ten times better!"

Blaster and maybe Broadside are covered at least.
And MP-sized Blaster is in the works from the guys doing the MP-sized Soundwave, and Broadside is still on FansProject's list, after being teased at TFCon like, 3-4 years ago or something. He was probably Warbot-02, as listed on FansProject's (ridiculously, unbelievably optimistic) release schedule for last year.
We do really need a Blitzwing from somebody though. He's the last major hole in a Classics Decepticon army, with no real 3rd Party or outside-line (ie: Energon Shockblast or Cybertron/Device Label Soundwave filling in for Classics) substitute.
I personally attribute his absence to the relative difficulty of designing a robot that transforms into both a semi-realistic jet and tank, without being simply an articulated retread of the G1 design. But what do I know?

Hasbro's giving us RoC Shockwave in the next Generations line. Wave 1, along with the new Prime and Jazz.

There hasn't been any G1 Sentinel prime either, has there?
I forgot that spaghetti was a pasta really.

Same here. Sex sells, I know, but do we also need that to sell giant transforming robots? (Then again, KISS Players...)
Zero interest in Nightbird. She was a non-entity who had no personality or even a voice. I'd buy toys of the cartoon's Sentinel Prime (that rhino-car) before hers.
