    Ok... so they announced it at our quarterly meeting last week to the whole company so I'm pretty sure it is safe to say now. It's Perceptor & the Insecticons.

    *crosses fingers* that would be SO awesome if true, i don't got them and it would be nice to have three insecticons i can get in one bundle that is cheaper and has no chrome wear, and there really wouldn't be anything gutted to make it safe for stores.......and a perceptor would be great to put with my autobots...and the insecticons would make excellent soldier fodder, seeing as i only got one decepticon (soundwave)

    This will be a nice finish to my Classic collection, seeing as there never were updated versions of these. Looking foward to it.

    That is one of the last G1 figures I would have in mind for HASBRO re-issues. I guess this round of re-issues will not be a repeat of the Commemorative series.

    Seems like TRU is getting some cool stuff this year.

    I hope these reissues come with chrome weapons.

    Was this a ToysRus meeting? Did they mention anything about the Jurassic Park toys coming to ToysRus in June?

    Freaking awesome...looks like I will have a reason to go to TRU this second half of the year...!!!

    I hope the $50 is just for the Insecticons though...Perceptor shouldn't be above $24.99... :)

    I could see £50 for all four figures, but not for the Insecticons on their own or Perceptor on his own, The takara reissue of the insecticons weren't that much and I saw them in an import stor famous for selling items for more than they're worth.

    Those are excellent choices for reissues. The Insecticons especially, what with the high aftermarket price on the TFC set. I'll always troop build Insecticons! :D 

    Hopefully they can throw in a DVD with each reissue with some G1 episodes featuring the characters. "Microbots" would go great with Perceptor, and the Insecticons have some choice episodes too.

    Cool, these molds had not been re-released in the west until now. A step in the right direction for reissues.
