    considering the news of the seacons coming out soon, this leads me to ask a question.

    Observing the following facts:
    -universe being a dead line
    -repaints being unnecessary (not that the universe colors were all that good as a whole)
    -reissues being in demand
    -molds being available (stickers too)

    Which would we as the fandom rather see the club do;

    1.-a universe repaint in the horrible orange we've seen many moons ago?

    2.-an original coral colored "reissue" in some sort of commemorative packaging akin to G1


    If polls were still an option, I'd have put one in this thread. Perhaps if enough of us lean toward one, the club might possibly decide to oblige us. wishful thinking, but it couldn't hurt.

    Supposedly, the sets have already been made a few years ago and are just sitting in a warehouse waiting to be shipped to a seller.

    So your re-issue idea may be pointless now. However, there's always room for "repaints!" (and by repaints I mean reissues).

    fiction, as of BotCon 2007

    fiction. Skywarp is my BOY, Starscream can jump in a lake.


    Coral and purple? I can get behind that. But I heard the reissues that were already produced were mostly purple. Mebbe I remembered that wrong...

    if they're the colors that the walmart exclusive version was, I will ignore this release. it's not worth it with what the club would charge. I would have paid what walmart would charge, but I just know the club will end up charging 150 or more for this. no way.

    if it's a straight-up G1 reissue though, in the proper colors with sticker sheets and all that, I will be happy to pay club prices for it.

    While I'm not a fan of the orange on the Universe Seacons (like most of the other colors fine though), I'd rather have something OTHER than a straight G1 rehash. (therefore the Universe scheme is acceptable to me if no other options are available)

    Heh. You know, I just bought myself a Piranacon, after longing for one for awhile, so it doesn't surprise me at all the the recolor's finally got a chance of coming out. I'll vote...Universe colors, just for the sake of variety.

    But, man, do I love the colors on the originals.

    Same here. No matter the color or the packaging, I won't pay that much for a figure that we should have had in a friggin' Wally World a few years ago for less than $30.

    Too bad Wal-mart balked on Hasbro, leaving the seacons without a retailer.
