If there was ever a need for a remake....for the love of Cybertron

I realize that this is a pipe dream, but does anybody else wish that the classic 1985 animated Transformers:The Movie, could be re-made in some way?
It was and continues to be such an important piece of the Transformers mythos(Unicron, the final battle between Megatron and Optimus etc). But I always felt as if some limitations of the time it was written combined with some general animation screw-ups prevalent in that series made it imperfect.
Devastator, was the only combiner present, despite the fact that about 3 or 4 had been introduced in the series by the time the movie released. In the anniversary comic book, they tried to retcon this by explaining that the other combiners were having an epic combiner battle royal near "The Ark", but what about Omega Supreme? Where the fuck was he at? It would have been awesome to see him battle his arch nemesis, Devastator within the crippled and burning remains of Autobot city.
Also, there were so many autobots and decipticons from the first two seasons that didn't appear in the movie and then just were never seen again like Cosmos and Beachcomber. Of course, we all know that the real life reason is because new toys came out and they wanted to promote them, but I would have liked some explanation as to what the fuck happened to these characters!
Also, the obvious Snarl's absence from the movie. He appears in one scene for a second and then is never seen again for the remainder of the film. I mean did he just run into hiding or some shit? And what about Blaster and the other bots that arrived in Optimus's ship like Hound for the duration of the movie?
I could go on forever, but my point is that a remake using today's advance technology and some love for the source material up to that point along with attention to detail would be so fucking awesome. i know it will never happen, but I just needed to get that out.
