    I've always liked G1 Octane's design. The other day I got a junker Octane in a trade and I am blown away by how much I like it, I can only imagine how awesome a new, complete Octane would be.

    So what reissues that have not been made are you guys dying to have?

    I have all of G1, but I would like reissues of the decepticon new mold large Targetmasters, so their TM partners could be remolded with better durability.

    I'd also like to see easily-broken vintage toys reissued with their weaknesses corrected, like Hardhead's chest plate and Horri-Bull's beast head hinge. Also reissuing anyone who suffers from GPS with the new GPS-proof plastic would be ideal. Skyhammer and Roadblock would be two of my favorite Pretenders if I ever dared to touch them!

    I would love to have a minty brainstorm again :)

    Seconding that GPS comment, I would love a retool of G2 Electro with non-crumbling plastic, and also getting rid of the rubber-band waist. But that's not tremendously on-topic...

    Liokaiser springs to mind. And really, pretty much any Headmaster, though that's because I want to buy Junkion Blacksmith's heads and actually put them on something.

    My G1 collection grows very slowly. The one G1 reissue that would make me jump leaps and bounds to get would be a Fortress Maximus. Not a KO, an authentic Takara reissue.

    I like where Foster is going with this. I would also love to see the Japanese only figures (i.e. Masterforce, Victory, etc) to be reissued. I would absolutely love a reissue Victory Saber and Lio Kaiser.

    Ideally I would love for them to get the classics treatment.

    Cost & interest in the toy. The last time the mold was released was for Car Robots and it didn't sell well in Japan IIRC.

    A guide to getting your favorite TF toys reissued, and Takara exclusives issued (unaltered) by Hasbro for half the price.

    1) Determine conclusion
    2) Work backwards in an attempt to justify said conclusion.
    3) If facts do not fit the desired conclusion ignore or misrepresent them until they do.
    4)??????
    5)Success! You can now buy Striker Prime for 9.99 from your local WalMart.

    I'd dig an Overlord someday, but I think the poor sales of Star Convoy ruined any kind of Takara only reissue type toy that we never saw here in the states.

    @Kaijumaster: I'm pretty sure that mold, along with Whirl's mold and for sure Jetfire's mold, is owned by Bandai.

    Something goofy like a series of partners (power, head, target-).
