Hello all. I've looked around the internet for whart years G1 figures were out beyond their initial release year and how many were in each case assortment. I've found good information on most figures, though there are some gaps. Some mysteries: * Were the 1985 regular Autobots re-issued in 1986? * Were the Dinobots also sold in 1986? It seems likely, but I haven't found specific mention of it. If so, it was probably Dinobot Assortment II since Asst. I had no Swoop. Any confirmation Constructicons were also sold in 1986? * Perceptor, Blaster were reissued for 1986. Were Shockwave, Omega Supreme, Jetfire, the Deluxe Autobots (Roadbuster, Whirl) re-issued in 1986 as well? * Were the 1986 Triple Changers indeed only sold for 1 year (1986) or were they re-issued in 1987? * Was Skids intended to be released in 1984 but delayed to 1985? (see below) * Were the Jumpstarters (1985 ) & Battlechargers (1986) only available 1 year? It kind of looks that way. The Duocons (1987) look like they weren't available in 1988. * Why was Bruticus not sold as a giftset? Did Decepticon combiner sets not sell as well as Autobot combiner sets? They were each only available for 1 year while their combiner teams were available for 2 years. Some interesting tidbits: * The 1984 Autobots (the regular sized ones, not the mini-vehicles) came 1 per case except for Mirage, who was 2 per case. * The 1985 regular sized Autobots came 2 per case except for Skids, who was 1 per case. * In the Dinobot assortments, there ended up being more Sludges between the two than any other Dinobots. * Soundwave was sold through 1986. The only other 1984 regular figure available that long was Starscream, who came 1 per case with the 1986 Decepticon jets (needed to make the case add up to 12). * Ravage & Laserbeak were available to 1986, Frenzy was available in 1986 & 1987 paired up with Ratbat. Rumble (red) was the only 84 cassette available for just 2 years. * The original Hot Rod, Blurr, Kup were not re-issued. They were replaced with the Targetmaster versions. So, unlike most 1986 & 87 figures, each version was only available for 1 year, not 2 as was the norm then. * Think Broadside is the worst triple changer? Well, in the 1986 Triple Changers case, he came 3 per case (Octane was also 3); the other Autobot triple changers were 2 per case. * Sharkticon came in the Predacons Case Assortment (a matter of the case fitting 12 toys and 5 not fitting evenly into 12).
