    I recently came across a new listing for the Transformers Soundwave reissue at www.toysrus.com that states it has a "G1 New Package Design." It also lists the price at a JAW DROPPING $89.99 on the website. The item number is 615164 which is different than the original TRU Exclusive G1 Soundwave which was 744209. Does anyone know anything about this? Will there be new packaging for the Soundwave (with all new accessories) or will it be the same thing but with an insane higher price? The customer reps at the website usually don't know specifics about the toys on the website.

    Kinda makes me think of the way WM.com was selling the Encore Reissues.

    Appears to be another seller ("Distributoys") selling through tru.com, and looks to be the Encore version. All 4 are listed here.

    Too expensive they need to bring the price down on these.

    Amen.

    As someone who never had G1 figures growing up, the Encore series was promising...until I found out how much they were, and how hard they were to get. :cry

    If you buy them from resellers like TRU and WM... they are expensive.

    Tfsource and other places were reasonable when they had them in stock.
