In the spirit of the excellent threat title just having a little fun....
Korg microBITS a smaller more affordable version of littleBITS with a micro stylus pad.
Roland SH-1T an 88 key advanced integrated waveform synth/spaceship with a touch display covering the entire surface bearing little resemblance to anything they made before.
Moog SubPhatty Hello Kitty edition
Aturia microMINILAB LE something else at Guitar Center hooked up to a dormant computer nobody will touch but looks cool like maybe it does something interesting.
Yamaha DX-707 a re-issue of the famed DX-7 FM synth with massive upgrades, on board effects, sequencer and endless operators. Holy s**t that actually sounds pretty cool.
Elektron 'nutherBox integrates sound seamlessly of your other boxes into one single box that can be controlled an manipulated on the fly using parameter locks. Being in the box never sounded so good.

Alot of you guys want big companies to remake old classics..Ain't gonna happen.

But IF they would, a smaller version of the Yamaha CS-80 at $1000 wouldn't be wrong. Instead of yamaha releasing yet another motif-spinoff this year too.

My MS-20 Mini would beg to differ. Someone's Moog Voyager would probably like a word with you as well.

Me, though, I'd settle for a $1500 JP-8...

s**t,too late.
But it's never too late for Moog to bring a polyphonic synth.

A $500 modern SH-101 could happen. I'd buy one. Did you hear that Roland?

I like how the quote JP-8 reissue keeps going up in price. I'd pay $1750 and not a penny more ;)
There's nothing out of place with Moog releasing an analog poly. Nor Korg perhaps a Polysix re-issue even if it were in rack format I'd go with that. How about that SQ-10 reissue, I don't have a dark time and it's been a year since the MS-20 mini was announced. Where's our damn sequencer.

Actually I predict Korg will announce a Femto range of synths, patched with human hair inserted into microscopic holes. They'll come with tweezers and a magnifier, and a cocktail stick to play the keys. They'll be 20 pence each, and you can fit an entire system in your hat.

Or a 1-octave piano. For cats.

Roland probably believe they have done that, and they called them SH-201 and SH-01 Gaia.

New workstations from Yamaha and Roland, both following Korg's trail.
The new Roland should feature a full blown V-Synth. If not, they should release a new V-Synth :-D

There's be so many exiting new products popping up recently that I'm not really desperate to see anything - just more interested.

Couldn't give a panda's bum hole about another Jupiter 8 .

So much cool stuff the past few years, but I'll take a DSI 32 step analog sequencer. The little 4x16 sequencer on the Evolver is right awesome, and a larger, stand-alone version would be awesomer.
