    This is kind of cool. But I'm not sure how many of us actually wanted yet another reissue of these two.

    Bizarre... that's really out of nowhere. And coincidentally, I was just messing with my reissue Rodimus Prime a couple days ago. I love that toy. One of the few reissues I've held onto.

    Agreed that the particular characters seem unneccesary but I always welcome G1 reissues....

    "Asian market Hasbro reissue"

    Wonder what that means? I already have the two previous releases of these guys. I want to see some packaged pics first.

    Wow, this came out of nowhere. I'd love a Sideswipe though. What are the chances of these getting a retail release?

    This is new and I am surprised not much was known about this before this posting. But it does fit with the word out there that TT is backing Encore hardcore.

    Those prices are crazy. If I'm not mistaken, the original Hasbro releases were near half of these.

    Jeez effing Christmas are those expensive. I'd order Sideswipe if he was $29.99, but $47.99? Yeesh!

    Well seems like BBTS is at it again cash grabbing from us TF fans. That or shipping went up once again, or rent or their fleet of employees got Xmas bonuses or raises (whatever anyone will say to defend them.)

    Robotkingdom price?

    Sideswipe-$35.90 vs BBTS $47.99
    Rodimus-$47.90 vs BBTS $62.99

    I hope the other NA sites do not follow the BBTS cash grab prices.

    Rumors have been rattling round on re-reissues of these for a while.

    Likely to be a repeat of the Seacon thing. Retail in Asia. Online dealers only in the U.S.

    Now, did BBTS order 20,000 of each of these as well?


    Non-Takara makret Asian countries: Singapore, Malaysia, China. This is where things like Henkei Reissues, Dragon Year Ultimate Prime,
    the Jetwpower set, tend to come from.




    Approximately zero. But by the time you get back to the U.K, (reliable postal system) they'll probably be still festering somewhere.

    Yeah, I read about this last week or something. It mentioned something about it being a possible straight TRU style packaging or something rather. Must have been the other TF news website.
