So I guess what I want to know is, if such a toyline existed in a way as described above, what toys would you want selected to be part of Transformers Archives? I have three choices atm but before that let's make a rule for this thread: NO NEGATIVITY. The key word here is hypothetical; I don't want to hear any 'Hasbro would never do this' or 'this is a dumb idea'. Just pick some toys you'd want to see made available again and explain why.
So here are my choices:
Transmetal Megatron. Heck of a toy back in the day and possibly the most iconic form of Beast Wars Megatron. I'm sure lots of fans would like to see this guy reissued due to the horrible GPS problems that have plagued the original version of this toy. My 'remastered' version of this toy would include the non-GPS susceptible plastic that the Japanese Version seemed to use and instead of vacuum metallizing the 'transmetal' parts, use a pearlescent paint (like the Japanese Animated toys). Perhaps a face remolding to remove the crazy grrrr face, replacing it with something more in character like the BW10th version.
Armada Tidal Wave: I'd have it reissued in cartoon-accurate/Micron Legend version colours. Perhaps retool the legs to give it articulated knees if possible.
G2 Cyberjet six-pack: It probably ouldn't be cost-effective to do these guys individually, so lets put all three molds together in their G2 Decepticon and Autobot decos as a versus pack! I'm sure a lot of people would want this just for Hooligan. There was nothing really wrong with these guys the first time, I'd just make sure that the mold was in good condition and that the joints were still tight before redoing them.
Liege is a small dude with a lot of wisdom.
Well one of those descriptive words is accurate I suppose!

And then all of the Repaint Ultra Magnus's that I don't have yet. Starting with Energon Ultra Magnus. Then maybe the classics two pack with Skywarp after that.
Edit: I'd actually like a lot of the Beast Wars figures redone with character-accurate face sculpts.
