    Do we have any information on wheter or not Hasbro will re-release future Energon overstock as part of the Universe line at discount outlets? I'm curious to know if they might re-release a few more Decepticons like Blackout or Kickback or Bonecrusher/Sledge's mold... You see I'm always expanding my Universe Fanfic with more new characters and right now I'm missing five Decepticons to make it even and before I start importing from other lines I was wondering if maybe Hasbro is still going hogwild with the overstock re-releases of Energon products in Universe packaging?


    Sorry if this the wrong place to put this Mods, but then again I'm asking about toys; so what better place to ask then The Toyark? :lol 

    I suppose the previous releases have sort of come out of left field; I thought maybe somebody might have asked this at Botcon, or that maybe Hasbro would have said something you know.

    That may be true, but he's a Wal-Mart exclusive and they wouldn't use overstock even as a repaint would they? And the discout retailers that these Re-released Energon/Universe figures have been showing up in are... Well I don't fully understand the relationship they have with Hasbro at the moment you'd have to ask Nevermore.

    Universe may be dead though; who can say I guess we'll have to wait and see if nobody thought to ask about that.

    The only thing that comes to mind was that second wave of basic figures for Universe, but you probably knew about those. It's so late in the game, and Hasbro explicitly stated that Universe is now dead (minus the Aerialbots that finally joined the party, apparently), so it seems less likely now.

    I thought I read somewhere the Aerialbots were in Cybertron packages? Anyway, Universe was fun while it lasted. I still enjoy the Zombie Beasts.

    Cybertron in Europe, Universe in America. Same way with the Constructicons and Railbots, though in the case of the former, substitute Cybertron with Energon.

    Basics wave 2 (Wideload, Terradive, Signal Flare, Energon Saber) - no confirmed sighting yet.

    Repackaged Spychangers on "Universe" cards:
