It's hard to say!
There aren't a huge number of classic figures that haven't been done, considering most interest after '87 or so includes only a few stand outs. There are a few left from the "dream era" of 83-86, but mostly Joe drivers, who are typically more bland than the singles.
If they do start up a classic based line again, they'd be sure that the iconic, overdone characters are constantly present, so hopefully that wouldn't mean tons of repaints. It may be cool seeing new sculpts of characters that were made during the early 25th, since they've really advanced since then.
Buying a newly sculpted classic Duke would be very bittersweet.

Buzzer, the best advice I can give ya bud, is to be patient and give it time.
I can almost promise you that you'll never see a "25th" Joe again, but you will almost certainly see a Modern Era/Classic Joe.
Hasbro always shelves their "Meat & Potato" assortments in favor of any Media tie-ins. Once the tie-in is over, if the tie-in assortment has life and continues to sell, the Core line is re-introduced to retail alongside the MTI.
Hasbro wants to make money. The problem a lot of us have is we want what we want, when we want it....then feel silly when what we claimed was never going to happen, does.
Of course, I know you aren't taking that stance and just asking a question, so again, the best advice I can give you is to sit tight until Spring. We're surely going to see what's cooking at JoeCon in April and ToyFair.
