    I was wondering about the US Toys R' Us Reissues, is there a list anywhere anyone knows of that might tell me who has been released and when? :huh

    Also if I can't find this does anyone know if Springer was reissued yet? :huh

    Thanks

    I don't think Springer has been reissued. Not in the US for sure.

    As for the TRU US reissues I'll see if I can remember them:

    Optimus Prime
    Ultra Magnus
    Powermaser Optimus Prime w/Apex Armor(God Ginrai)
    Rodimus Major(Hot Rod)
    Tracks
    Skids
    Inferno
    Grapple
    Hoist
    Jazz
    Riccochet(Stepper)
    Red Alert
    Sideswipe(although this never showed up in TRU here. It went to Kaybe within the last few months)
    Starscream
    Thundercracker
    Skywarp
    Dirge
    Smokescreen
    Silverstreak(Bluestreak)
    Prowl

    Also, we got four of the minbots as keychains:
    Bumblebee
    Cliffjumper
    Windcharger
    Brawn

    I think that's all. If I missed one, I'm sure someone else will correct me.

    Thanks guys, what about Rodimus Prime? I thought I seen a Rodimus Prime in one of the Toys R' Us around here the other day. But I can't remember which one. I bet someone took him by now though unless he is a new release?

    There aren't any new releases. The reissues have been done for a while. Rodimus was one of the last ones, along with Grapple, I think.

    The last ones were Sideswipe and Ricochet (Stepper in Japan), though Sideswipe was an odd case. Astrotrain is the last of the lot, but he only available on Hasbro's online toystore.

    Rodimus Prime has also been spotted at some second-tier stores like Tuesday Morning I believe.

    Ok, these lists are good, but they leave stuff out. Also, they give you no sense of "when" they were released. Here is the breakdown. ( I have them all )

    Fun4All Keychains
    Bumblebee
    Cliffjumper
    Brawn
    Windcharger

    CSI
    Optimus Prime
    Ultra Magnus
    Rodimus Major ( Hotrod )

    CSII
    Powermaster Optimus Prime with Apex armor
    Starscream

    CSIII
    Autobot Jazz
    Silverstreak
    Thundercracker

    CSIV
    Prowl
    Red Alert
    Skywarp

    CSV
    Tracks
    Hoist
    Inferno

    CSVI
    Smokescreen
    Grapple

    CSVII
    Rodimus Prime
    Dirge

    CSVIII
    Skids
    Sideswipe ( KB Exclusive in the states )

    CSIX
    Richochet
    Astrotrain ( HTS Exclusive )


    They came out in pretty much that order too. The only exception being Sideswipe and Astrotrain. They for some reason never saw the shelf at TRU, only to be released after the line ended at alternate locations.

    Maybe they lied, or maybe not enough people know about it.

    Or maybe a lot of people already bought the Takara bookstyle white Astrotrain, and the Hasbro rerelease not being a reissue of it's American version doesn't appeal to enough non-hardcore people. I bought the TFC and E-hobby releases and was kind of hoping that if and when Hasbro did one, he'd be in the original toy's colors despite the badassness of getting a reissue of an insanely expensive previously Japanese only toy (white) and pipe dream turned reality repaint (anime).

    That said, I bought the Hasbro one anyway. :D
