    I have been waiting since takara/hasbros last g1 reissue (piranacon) for the next new g1 reissue. I'm hoping some news comes out at botcon.

    I'm hoping a dinobot box set is on its way........yeah I know, but I can dream right?

    Do you think there will be any announcements? Or are new g1 reissues done?

    (And by new g1 reissue, I mean a figure that has not been reissued before)

    My wish list:
    Dinobots
    Computron
    Springer
    Abominus

    Any information that does come out will be tomorrow, I think.

    As for reissues, I would love to see Overlord get reissued (Wreckers fans would rejoice).

    I wouldn't be so interested in Springer. The character is classic, but the original toy had a really awful robot mode that didn't do him justice. I would prefer an all new Springer, but there goes me dreaming the impossible...

    Yeah springer wouldn't be my top choice but I would get him if reissued.
    I figure they reissued kup/wheelie, so why not springer. Plus he is hard to find in good condition for a decent price.

    What we need are late G1/G2 reissues. So many pieces of gold plastic... So many tears...

    Plus they're great toys.

    Yeah, my fingers are crossed that we get something good. (If we get anything g1 at all)

    Ramjet/thrust set would be good too.
    Or a bunch of minibots (windcharger, brawn, cliffjumper, hubcap. Seaspray, beachcomber) would be a fantastic set to help collectors complete their reissue minibot team.

    Looking forward to hearing any news tomorrow.

    when was the last time we got a NEW g1 reissue?? and by that I mean a mold that hadn't been redone by takara in the past. I think were done with new reissues and every few years will get new versions of the old reissues over and over again

    i love how all the main figures that people want reissued are physically impossible to reissue (dinobots, wheeljack, sunstreaker) or not economically feesible (fortress maximus) :lol 

    though i find some are sort of sarcastic answers :lol

    Sadly Wheeljack will probably never be reissued because apparently his mold was destroyed :( 

    But I'd love for the next Reissue to be the dinobots...or at least just Grimlock. I really like his design. The only Reissue I own though is perceptor and I do want Piranacon...but I want the dinobots more.

    Last summer with the G1 Piranacon set. While Fun Pub released the Universe deco of the same mold, we'd never gotten the G1 colored Seacons reissued.

    Omega Supreme and Sky Lynks are the last "new" reissues I can think of. Although there was a rumor of Sixshot getting one too, around the same time Predaking rumor came out Sixshot was also listed as an upcoming figure by the same source.

    Maybe we'll get Sixshot sometime soon....

    Would love some more reissued G1 combiners (look at Predaking, Seacons) I think it's possible to do this.

    Why are the dinobots physically. Impossible to reissue? I've never heard anything about those molds being destroyed or lost.

    But yes streaker, wheeljack, mirage will never be reissued.

    The era of the reissue is dead. The bottom line is that people don't buy them. As much as I would love for them to continue with them, I really don't think it is going to happen.

    KO are sometimes reverse engineered so that why they show up or the actual fact is the KO people are the ones who found the lost moulds or stole them?

    As for a new reissue I'd pretty much like any thy hasnt been done so far! A retort on would be lovely!
