    Can someone please make a list. Just list the G1 Transformers you know aren't coming back unless they remake and retool new molds.

    Wheeljack
    All 5 Dinobots

    The Combaticons aren't Gone .....any G1 molds that have been used within the past 10 years, are most likely still around..... the only question is if we will ever see them again.

    With all the releases that The G1 Combaticons got (I can think of 7 off the top of my head), I think the molds must be toast by now, unless they made a new set.

    Sure why not? I understand that some mold got lost or busted and it cost money to make a new one. I think the technology exists where new one could be created.

    Soundwave.
    The Constructicons.


    And there are some molds that are unavailable due to legal restrictions, like Jetfire & Shockwave.

    I mean they were originally produced by companies other than Hasbro/Takara. Thus they can't be used.


    And the Soundwave mold is listed as broken but SoundBLASTER is still available.

    Did the Japanese reissue have a single or a double cassette holder ? I know the US had a double but what about the Jap one ?

    Either way the Soundwave mold isn't entire destroyed..... the topic title say 100% gone/destroyed..... all that's different is the chest .

    Soundwave (proper) has not been reissued. Soundwave created from the Soundblaster mold HAS been reissued with a modified Soundblaster door and hinge. The Takara #10 reissue of Soundwave was made from Soundblaster's mold with the newly crafted single door. Unlike the original Soundwave it has an outer hinge and different panel buttons on Soundwave's chest.

    This variation has been used for both the Encore and TRU exclusive release.

    It also differs from the original in that it has "hollow" hands.

    Nope. The Combaticon molds were used to the point of disintegration during RiD and Universe 1.0.

    That would explain why we're getting the Energon Combaticon equivelents rather than the overused combatticons for Bruticus in the 25th Ani. line. Oh well, I never got any Energon combiners anyway, so this will be a good second chance.

    If we're going down that path, there's a couple of mold variations of G1 Prime that won't ever see a re-release :p 

    Anyhow, in the list of unavailable for use there's also Roadbuster and Whirl I believe.

    I remember when I was 14..... Ahhh the days! My dad and I were at the West Dundee Mall in IL. (Spencer store) He said I had $20. to spend. I could choose RoadBuster and Whirl at $10. each, or Jetfire for $20.

    I chose RoadBuster and Whirl.
