    Ummm, that is a knockoff, not a reissue.

    Reissue=Same toy, brought back for another release

    Knock-Off=Fake version of the toy usually with very cheap plastic and bad molding.


    Hasbro was planning on rereleasing the Seacons in a new paint scheme for the failed Universe line. No retailer wanted to pick up the set.

    :lol  There are going to be a lot of excited people opening this thread... I can almost feel their elation turning to disappointment and anger.

    EDIT: Good call on changing the thread title!

    Ya know - if the plastic is the "better" KO plastic, then I'd totally buy this and repaint it. Unless, by some miraculous reason, we get the reissue versions. Come on Hasbro - we love ya! Give us the Seacons!! ;-)

    The thing that amuses me the most is the fact that he has no feet.

    I find the card back most amusing though - random spaceships, Power Rangers rip off logo on a puce background - now that's art!
