I'm curious to know when Hasbro announces these releases officially. Can anyone tell me when, during the calendar year (or at what event) these announcements usually take place? Takara does a pretty good job of it. Also, is anyone aware of Hasbro's stance on G1 reissues at this point? They release a trickle compared to Takara, so I'm assuming the demand is greater in Asia vs. the U.S. And as a collector of strictly G1 reissues and Masterpiece, I find it to be disappointing. And more to the point, any thoughts on what will be the next Takara and / or Hasbro G1 reissue we'll be seeing? I feel that Hasbro, at the very least, could reissue G1 characters that have already been reissued elsewhere (i.e. Blitzwing, etc.), but since it isn't happening I'm assuming it's related to money somehow. As a side note, does anyone know where production numbers for reissues can be found or are they not officially reported (I'm feeling it's the latter since I've found very little information).
