Guys who haven't gotten toys since ~DotM might get new molds since Hasbro seems against using older toys for whatever reason.
They don't fit current budgets except in special cases, like store exclusives.
Well, Fortress Maximus is a retool of a toy from three lines ago. Actually, so is PMOP come to think of it Redecos of old toys are basically free revenue so long as they actually sell, there just isn't anything else they could put in CW or TR due to the standardized nature of the gimmicks, and PotP is just CW2: Electric Boogaloo, so expect more of the same.
I also suspect that they kinda wore out their goodwill with buyers by the shameless amount of repaints they did circa 2008-2009, which is probably why mold reuses are being pretooled now. Kinda shot themselves in the foot by allowing buyers to special-order assortments too. "Oh, lets just order a zillion cases of wave 1 and 2 with the Decepticon beasts removed! We're so clever!"
