    Hey guys,

    New to the board, just wanted to know whats the lastest G1 reissues from TRU?

    I've bought them all from day 1. The last ones I bought were soundwave and astrotrain. Have I missed any since then?

    Thanks

    Perceptor and the Insecticons. Perceptor comes in a box on his own, but the three Insecticons are in one box together.

    Did you get Sideswipe & Rodimus Prime? They were supposed to be released but ended up being sold thru KB Toys before it folded and some Tuesday Morning stores. The next reissues are Perceptor and the Insecticons due out this month or next. I almost forgot about the Soundwave reissue through TRU. That was about at the beginning of this year I think.

    hey guys, i'm looking on ebay and there's a bunch of 25th anniversary ones. i see walmart, target, toys r us stickers on them. also notice the voyager class and ultra class. i like completing my reissues but these dont look right. can anyone educate me on voyager and ultra class?

    i also notice 25th for optimus(with dvd), soundwave, bruticus and superion. package looks like all hasbro reissues? man, its hard keeping up with all this reissue business.

    thanks in advance for any info =)

    Not exactly... Maybe correct in the case of Sideswipe, but I picked up Rodimus and Dirge at TRU!

    Ebay:
    25th Optimus with DVD & Soundwave are reissues of G1.
    Bruticus, Superion and the rest are not G1 reissues.

    Is it just the Hasbro reissues you get? Not Takara? If so, you're missing out on some great reissues that Hasbro may never get around to (Megs, Metroplex, Omega Supreme, the cassettes etc).

    Oh, and did you see the SDCC Exclusive reissue of Soundwave that came with 4 cassettes - Ravage, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw and Ratbat? That was a Hasbro one...

    You can also get any info you need in-house right here Transformers Resources.

    Also as far as Ultra and Voyager... They are the size classed between deluxe and leader class. Mostly any thing with these on the box are not reissues.

    when i started collecting them, it was just the hasbro issues. then i found out about the hundreds of takara and couldnt afford to collect all of those too so i passed. i like to be a complete collector and my budget allows me to collect only the habros.

    okay. so next on my hit list is 25th optimus and sdcc soundwave.

    thanks everyone
