    So is he saying that the rumored Soundwave is listed as an Autobot or that the rumored Soundwave is not listed at all?

    Is there any chance someone mistook Blaster for Soundwave??


    Speculation based on what we can be fairly sure is still available:

    Trailbreaker
    Ratchet
    Ironhide.

    I hope they are new characters, not just previously released ones such as Kup and Wheelie, Hound, etc.

    i'd say, look at what's been done in Japan and hasn't here and there's your list...

    really hope (dispite the 'no autobots' line) that we get Ramjet as previously scheduled...

    I am excited...I for one liked the TRU stuff...except of course for the changes, but for the most part, yeah, I liked them...I like getting the old stuff in brand new condition...and putting the stickers on and all that.....it's great. I like the Takara releases better....but when they went on clearance at TRU I was getting a Dirge for 9 bucks and inferno for 2...I bought extras just to put the stickers on...I love it...I am the sticker master!!!!

    Perhaps bcause of the movie TRU thinks they will sell this time.

    I was really hoping for a Reissue of Soundwave. Oh well, at least were getting some more reissue's though.

    Hmm I did get a ton of clearanced G1 reissues and wouldn't mind adding one or two more if they were good characters. Ironhide, Hound, Trailbreaker all sound tasty.

    I would like Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, and Mirage from the restored/replaced molds. Would be great Hasbro-US exclusives. : O

    Since that is totally unrealistic, I'd settle for Ironhide, Ratchet, Blaster, and Perceptor!

    And I agree, we need Ramjet too!!

    Unless they are able to release them at a lower price point as non-exclusives, I will probably have to pass. Too little Transformer for the money IMO, and my G1 collection is large enough as it is. They're just not worth the added expense to me anymore. However, if they ever considered porting the Purple Galvatron over here at a reasonable price, I'd buy that shit for sure.

    I doubt they will be anything that hasnt already been a Takara reissue. Which saves me money, but is good news for you non-importers.

    If not, im hoping for ratchet/ironhide as those are the only 2 autobot cars im missing from my collection.

    I'm not going to get terribly excited unless we get Dinobots and/or Constructicons.

    And I really, really hope TRU has learned better than to so horribly overprice them this time.

    TRU is now owned by a new company that leaves the prices, more or less, on par with Walmart, etc.

    I'd imagine we'd still see $24.95 to $29.95 for a re-issue.

    I believe Artfire (Red/White Inferno with targetmaster gun Frekas) is on their list since they've repeatidly said if they DID start it back up, they'd want to release him.

    Pprime that list you say is for 2008?

    Perhaps your source did not take into account that Soundwave might be reissued later this year or in 2007? Maybe that is why he is not listed.
