G1 Commemorative Series Returns?

Commemorative Ultra Magnus (New Version) - Transformers Reissue Transformers Hasbro Commemorative

Judging from what we see here, Magnus has long stacks and short missiles. No in package images, so I'm still a mite skeptical. At any rate, make of it what you will. They are all separate listings from the 2004 TRU reissues, and all labeled as (New Version).

EDIT****

HOLY CRAP, It would seem that reissues are coming in full force.

Astrotrain
Optimus Prime
Powermaster Optimus Prime w/ Apex Armor (God Bomber)
Soundwave w/ Ravage and Laserbeak

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/s...=commemorative

Ultra Magnus and Soundwave are IN STOCK, the PREORDERS are up for the rest.

We've known about this for a little while, i think.

All re-releaes, and all imported Hasbro Asia releases, probably.

Why reissue them when they so easy to get?

Because aftermarket prices aren't particularly cheap and Hasbro would like to make the money instead of eBay vendors?

Full disclosure: I ordered the Astrotrain reissue immediately after news of it broke because $55 at BBTS beats $100+ on eBay any day of the week.
"The political state of transfandom in and of itself is truly worth noting from a sociological perspective, as it provides about the clearest look anyone is going to get at what it was like in Western Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire or in India prior to the establishment of the British colonial authorities...in other words, electronic feudalism."

I thought these have been on pre-order for a while now.

Those are some pretty high prices for Hasbro-neutered reissues.

Afraid we've known about these for a while, but thanks for sharing. They are new runs being done for the Asian market, not a full-on return for the Commemorative Series.
