Classics is the first in a series of three lines meant to fill in between movie or TV series related lines. The main idea is that they are modern, updated versions of Generation 1 figures. Classics, was released in 2006, to fill in the gap between the previous line and the 2007 Movie line. It was hugely popular, spawned a sequel Universe Classics 2.0 with even more figures in it, after the 2007 Movie line, and the third, Generations, line hitting mid-2010 after the 2009 Movie line ended.
There was also a Japanese version of the Classics line (and sub-lines), called Henkei, which has some interesting repaints of Classics figures.
