because i cant seem to get mint version, they always have problems when i get a hold of one
I have a feeling these won't be re-issued for a long, long time, if ever...
But you never know until it happens...
They can't, because they weren't Takara-owned molds. I believe they were Bandai toys.
If the toys ever get reissued, they won't be in Deluxe Insection colours, under the Transformers name brand, at least.
didnt hasbro buy the rights like they did omega supreme and skylynx from toy box????
most likely because the deluxe sized Insecticons never appeared in the TV series
Considering that Bandai and TakaraTomy are competing companies in Japan, no.
And I don't think the rights to the molds were obtained from Toy Box. I'm pretty sure Toy Box as a company was absorbed sometime earlier by Tomy, and thus, when Takara and Tomy merged, the molds became available to use under the Transformers brand again.
Bummer. I'm still on the hunt for a decent Barrage. Scarcity seems to drive up the price on these to unreasonable levels for often loose-limbed oldies.
intresting, ohh well, ill just have to keep upgrading till i have perfect versions of them lol
I'd love to see at least one of the Deluxe Insecticons redone in a future Universe-ish line. Some will probably require a name change, but I always liked their designs.
Oh yeah, Deluxe Insecticons are awesome. I'd love to see them both redone and reissued.
the ones that come up are the bandi version s before hasbro took them and they dont really do it for me
I think they could probably do dual-purpose molds for Sharpnel/Chopshop, Kickback/Ransack, and Barrage might look ok as a repaint of a classics Bombshell, and then maybe even a Venom/Transmetal-ish Waspinator mold.
If that high quality KO company did them, I'd buy 'em in a second! Isn't there someone on this board that's in the know? I'd be great to at least suggest it...
Why? There not that well known.
because im unable to get mint versions of these, there is always something wrong with them
They would re-issue them just for you?
did i say that
No they licensed Omega Supreme. And comissioned Skylynx. In fact Takara is the reason the deluxe insecticons, Jetfire, and the deluxe Autobot cars were never in the show. They weren't about to have Bandai's toys advertized in the cartoon about the toy line they were selling.
Anyone have pics? I'm curious on what they are.
must of caused a stir with hasbro
