    I have a question about the Hasbro commemorative series re-issues. The boxes from the UK, do they not say "commemorative series" anywhere on the box? Thanks.

    I take it you mean the TRU re-issues? As far as I can remember they're the US ones shipped over here.

    Oh yeah sorry I meant the TRU ones :)  The thing is I have recieved a Prowl from the UK but the box doesn't say "Commemorative series IV" anywhere on the box. I thought they were the same as the U.S. ones.

    I think the Jazz + Starscream I had had the 'Commemorative' text on the boxes, I no longer have them. My local TRU has loads of Red Alert and one Tracks at the moment, if no-one's given a definitive answer by the time I get up (it's 2:23 AM here, bugger better get to bed), I'll swing by to check them out tomorrow.

    Incidentally, it was the TRU Jazz + Starscream that rekindled my interest in TF's a few years ago. :)

    I have a few of the UK reissues, and of the top of me head, I think some of the series have Commemerative Series *** on the box, some don't!

    Will have to check my boxes when I get home, can even post pics if there isn't a definite answer. I certainly have Prowl and can answer that one for sure.

    Just back from TRU, they've got Red Alert, Tracks, Skywarp, and Prowl. None of them have the 'Commemorative' script on them. Hope this helps.

    - Red Alert
    - Grapple
    - Skywarp
    - Prowl

    There are supposedly one or two more out at the minute, but I can't remember them.

    I suspect the re-issues on the shelves are left over stock as they've also got a selection of Cybertron figs which haven't been on the shelves for a while (I just remember Megs as I'm not into the Cyb. line). They've got a big TF display but no movie figs to fill it (apart from Real Gears, Stompers etc), presumably just trying to fill the space/shift old stock as interest in TF's has been re-kindled.
