    Just a bit of a wild theory, on my part. But I remember noticing, when I read the comic that comes with the Battle in Space Hotrod and Cyclonus two-pack, that most of the characters in it had either just come out as a new toy or had been announced as a new toy. In one panel alone, you see grapple, warpath, tracks, rumble, frenzy and lugnut.
    At the time I thought maybe this comic was a sneaky way of hinting at future releases. But I forgot about it because devastator was on the exact same panel and no way was he getting a reissue.
    Then what happens? Reissue devastator gets announced, so I had another look at the comic. Unicron appears in it and he's getting another (abeit limited) release.
    Characters that appear in the comic that haven't had a a new toy or just have been out of production. Are Wheelie, cartoon acurate (not a white optimus) Ultra Magnus, all five dinobots.
    So could we be getting g1 reissues of magnus and the dinos? Or all new toys of them even?

    thats sounds like wild speculation....... but reguardless i hope its truth cause that 700 dollar devastator is a bit much.

    you notice there was some characters that were their g1 models and some that were the new toy models, devastator was one of the g1 models, while warpath was a brand new model which we later found out was a new toy
