    Apparently around the same time TRU did a reissue of Starscream Hasbro released another reissue exclusively sold at Disney theme parks. Has anyone else heard about this? If not, I have a friend who has one that I can post some pics of.

    Agreed, pics please, cause I live 2 hours from Disney, know people that work there, and I've never heard about this.

    I got one back in the day. It wasn't a real "exclusive". All it was was the same reissue sold at TRU with a new UPC sticker slapped on top (and IIRC, it was about $5 less than TRU's price).

    It was sold at the "Once Upon a Toy Store" in Downtown Disney. It was a predominantly Hasbro toy store and apparently they were allowing Disney to carry some of the exclusives at the location. In addition to Starscream, they also carried the Powermaster Optimus PRime reissue and had carried the prior wave of reissues. Also carried the "Heroes of Cybertron" pvc figure line around series 2 (which were rather difficult to find at the time due to their distribution to pharmacies).

    But to summarize, Disney did NOT get an exclusive Transformers item. It was the same reissue TRU got with a new sticker (and only over the UPC at that).

    The person it belongs to is the owner of Fark.com

    He had told me (and I'll believe it when I get the pics as well) that the disney TRU reissue had a sticker on the packaging that read "Disney World Exclusive."

    Again, time will tell, I'll be posting pics later on in the week now that I know people want to see this thing.
