    3."Power-Line Panic"
    A two pack of Deluxe Cliffjumper and Voyager Bulkhead recalling the two's misadventures upon first arriving on Earth, as mentioned by Arcee in Scrapheap.

    ... The hell is this? Why do they have to make a special case to re release molds of a figure? How about they just manufacture more of them, put them in first Edition packaging, and send them to stores?

    4. Have a mail away contest where collectors have to buy 30 RID Bumblebees in order to get a random FE figure mailed to them.

    Edit: And when I say "random", I mean a FE Bumblebee.

    Because retailers didn't want First Edition, and if they are released later, well, they aren't "first" are they?

    We will see the molds again, but they WON'T be in First Edition packaging.

    Yeah, a tail end release of a cancelled show is TOTALLY comparable to a cancelled preview selection for a show that Hasbro plans to support for several more years.
    They are completely separate situations.

    Hasbro has YEARS to find a way to release these molds again. This is a company that used a Voyager movie Prime mold through TWO movie pushes, I think they'll probably reuse a Voyager Prime mold tied to a show that's slated to run for a few more years.

    You know that is a pretty good question really - isn't it - at the very list they could twist TRU's arms to take more of them and the Voyagers and Entertainment pack for sale in NA too.

    We know the NA style boxes existed as they were also on sale in places like Singapore and they were not just canadian Tri-logo ones and some of the Deluxes made it to USA TRUs.

    But that does seem like the best way - perhaps instead of getting on Hasbro's case about this we should be annoying TRU about it instead.
    Otherwise maybe they might do what they do with Star wars Transformers and Star Wars and some marvel toys in general and just straight reissue them but in a different packet type.

    I'm happy to see them all re-issued say after wave 4 Deluxes and wave 3 Voyagers perhaps rotated into cases or offered as a revision case assortment of Deluxes and Voyagers.
    I hope they do not forget the other Vehicon and Zombie Cliff in the curfuffle (sp?) either.

    Who knows if it encourages them to squeeze out an extra case across the year or rotate al the over done Bumblebee's a bit quicker then it might be a good thing.
    I did think it was epseically daft when they undermanufactured DOTM megatron and released the red ironhide on his own when there had been no new Voyagers for months and most of the ones ont he shelf were an Optimus.

    If they bring back FE Optimus and FE Bulkhead it will have to be as boxed sets seperate cases or in much later wave otherwise you will have two near identical Optimus and Bulkheads out at the same time.
    Perhaps the best way to do it is like this : (If they do not just get TRU to take them as exclusives) is to pack a Voyager with a Deluxe :

    FE Bulkhead Vs Vehicon
    FE Optimus Vs Zomibie Cliff

    And then just sell the others in RID red packaging as normal Deluxes at a later date or have a smaller size or Deluxe twin packs they farm out to another store like Target.

    Package them in the movie trilogy line so that retailers will stock them, albeit unwittingly/unknowingly. FE Prime will shelfwarm before you know it and make everyone happy.

    I don't care what the package looks like, I just want the figures.

    Remembering their past exclusives - probably not the greatest idea unless you are very wealthy.

    My idea.

    "The ultimate apology"
    10 FE Vehicons, 1 deluxe Cliffjumper, and 1 FE Arcee

    Kidding, kidding.

    But I'm sure they'll be SOME FE molds showing up in the RiD line. I don't care if it's Bumblebee, Atleast it'll be a FE mold. Also, Deadend is coming, so maybe he'll use CJ's FE mold. Or the ugly RiD one. I don't know.
