    I am putting together a set of MISB G1 reissues and would like to add the dinobots. I have seen the KO versions on ebay and they look like they would fit in fine with what I have already. Is there any possibility that Takara or Hasbro will reissue the dinobots or will it never happen?

    I doubt it.

    NAYS:
    If they hade plan for it then they would have done so by now due to the popularety of the Dinobots.

    They wouldent let the KO to be made , legall actions etc aginst the KO makers of the Dinos

    Think a few molds are lost or destroyed.

    MAYBEES

    Takara/Tomy did do Skylynx and Omega so nobody really know what is comming.

    WILDCARD

    Next year is 25th annaversary and nobody knows what Takara/tomy /Hasbro got installed. If a Dinobot giftset would be relesed I say it would come next year.

    my thoughts...

    We've also been told that the molds were destroyed at some point. Wether this is 100% ture is hard to tell. Would be cool to see a Dinobot set mass released for the 25th Ann. though. Even better yet, imo, would be a MP version of Grimlock (though that's probably less likely than the reissues).

    and if they only decide to do ONE of the 5 it will be with 99% probabitety Grimlock. I think he has the biggest chance to be made then the other 4.

    Well Takara Tomy said they would not compete with the KO company's. That is why we might never see dinobots, and most of the combiners "Devastator, Superion, Menasor. You can thank the KO company

    Would this be a reasonable question for the Hasbro Q&A at BotCon, or does someone ask this every year?
