    Hello everyone, did the reissue micromasters come in a box set, or individually, also what paper did they have?

    All the Combiners rereleases, US and Japanese, came individually. The Japanese ones were blind-boxed, but a cutout on the front had a number that let you know which one you were getting. The US releases were carded and sold at the Legends pricepoint.

    They all came with instruction booklets. The Japanese ones had more detailed booklets that included a story page about the characters as well.

    The Japanese reissues also had chase editions that weren't differentiated from the regular ones. Sixturbo had a black "reverse evolution" version, Sixwing had a white "Berserker" version, Sixtrain had a red "Hate Plague" version, and Sixbuilder had the best of the bunch - a Devastator version. Hasbro's release of him had better paints, though.

    The Japanese reissues had two different sets, Sixbuilder and Sixwing, Sixbuilder was changed to Constructicons for the US release, and Sixwing was changed from the original to a Decepticon for the reissue. The US version redid him as an Autobot again, but he wasn't the same as the original Sixwing.

    Japan also reissued Sixliner, who didn't get a US release, he was only a remold of Sixtrain, though.

    Just to add a small tidbit to Sol Fury's excellent post; the US repaint of Sixwing was repainted as the G1 Aerialbots and they combined into Superion.
