    We should create a motion to ask both Hasbro and Takaratomy to reissue Transformers G1 Combiners. Many Transformer fans would be happy to purchase brand new reissues of G1 combiners.

    Now, which is your favorite G1 combiner and why do you think it should be reissued?

    Autobots:
    1. Superion
    2. Defensor
    3. Computron

    Decepticons:
    1. Devastator
    2. Menasor
    3. Bruticus
    4. Predaking
    5. Abominus

    I want it to happen, therefore it makes economic sense for Hasbro and Takara to do it.

    I'm selfish....I already own all the standard combiners so personally I'd rather see a reissue of Liokaiser, Landcross or Monstructor.

    I'll second Monstructor, and I don't own all the originals. I had one of those little guys when I was I kid, but lost it. Not a huge loss, as it's probably dust at this point (GPS).

    My romantic within wishes they'd ever reissue Liokaiser.

    Any news about new figs from the ENCORE line would brighten my day, especially combiners. Or ya know, Black Zarak, Overlord and Dino cassettes

    We already got an Encore Bruticus, mold degradation and all. Can't imagine what another re-issue would look like.

    Liokaiser would definitely be great.

    Though Landcross was reissued in blind packs.

    I had thought Dinoking/Monstructor could get released that way too, without the pretender shells. Monstructor colors could have been the 'chase' version, but that never happend.

    Guys:

    Maybe, we should start sending emails to Hasbro, so they know there is a huge demand for G1 combiners. If it does not work, at least, Hasbro will know there is a niche market they are not satisfying. I am still not sure whether the Transformers G1 production decisions are made by a marketing team on their own or the decision is made based on a market study. Anyways, I will send my share of G1 combiner request emails to Hasbro.

    Thanks,

    Just Bruticus, not counting the TFCC Seacon repaints.

    You can also notice no G1 Autobot combiner has ever been reissued either from Takaratomy or Hasbro in this decade. They are only three (Aerialbots, Protectobots, and Technobots), but a lot of potential for them.

    That's wrong. Landcross was reissued in 2004 and he is a G1 Autobot combiner.

    I'd like to see a re-issue Raiden happen. Or if not give me trainbot combiners in Generations. If not Raiden then maybe Piranacon/Seacons in original colors I lost m original set some time ago and would love to have a brand spanking new set of those guys.

    Well, actually, I am referring to the G1 Autobot combiners from the US cartoon and definitely Landcross was not in it. Try to be a little more constructive, Fosterlager. Anyways, I would like to see all Autobot G1 combiners from the US Cartoon reissued with die-cast parts, that would be great, even for Hasbro or Takaratomy seeing a revenue surge.
