    TFC, SDCC, and Platinum to my knowledge. Encore had a Twincast right before the end.

    1. The Platinum reissue was less than four years ago.
    2. It shelfwarmed (to the extent that an online exclusive can warm shelves) hard. So hard you could pick it up for half off until recently.
    3. With the many preorder listings up, it might be getting reissued. Or the online version of Ollies'd.
    Skywarp's nowhere near the top of my list but still higher than Blaster. I won't be upset about a Blaster reissue but I know exactly why some people aren't interested.

    For all the people getting upset pissed off etc - What if, just if, this was not a poll you were to ever be a part of? What if, this poll represents the wants of those who DO use todays technology & never experienced everything before, & just want Blaster cause its the first time & it balances against an evil tape deck? Fighter jets are not exactly the big draw as a toy they were for other previous generations. Your love & my love are not meaningless. AS much as I like that Blaster won, if he had lost, I'd not be whining about the poor seekers never getting the love. I just would not buy him. JUST like I won't buy most of them.

    I tend to think all this poll means is that Blaster will be reissued first. I'm thinking Skywarp will come later, provided the line doesn't fizzle and die before then.

    Last time Walmart had an exclusive Skywarp, they chose not to ship them anywhere until they were on clearance for 75% off and that was the end of US MPs until TRU picked them back up. So it's the figure on deck _after_ Skywarp that I'd be worried about.

    I wonder how much Wal-Mart will discount this round of reissues. Like I said before reissue something more interesting like the Stunticon giftset or Powermaster Optimus Prime.

    Why bother with these stupid votes, just rerelease the entire line, or whatever molds of the original G1 line Hasbro still has. There is a market for this line, it will sell, Hasbro should offer these pieces via Hasbro pulse.

    Incidentally... if anyone has an extra of those Platinum Intel Ops that they picked up on the cheap and wants to sell it, throw me a PM, please?
    (If not maybe it will be my turn to luck out with the new restock...) Thanks in advance.

    I’m all for this. It’s the perfect companion to the Soundwave release. I can’t wait for both!!

    The only way another Blaster release is worth buying is if it also includes Rewind, his legs are not brown, and he’s no more than $40. I voted for Skywarp because the TRU Commemorative Series was his last domestic release... and he had those pontoon null ray cannons.

    Would have rather had Skywarp. I'll still get it for the box, have the SDCC and Platinum as well as my OG one. Damn you and your vintage boxes Hasbro.

    Side note, anyone have an original gun to complete my vintage G1 one? PM me if you do.

    Wow, how do you do that? I'm never offline. Yet I'm not on stupid Facebook. So poll could also just have been left out as well.

    I'm happy for everyone excited for this but for me we've seen these guys reissued so many times already and we STILL don't have a reissue Diaclone Bluestreak?

    Again I'm happy you're happy but c'mon. Give us G1 Blue Bluestreak HasTak you cowards.

    I voted Blaster in assuming they can continue the cassette 2 packs.

    Not sure why anyone here thinks they are going to do an obscure reissue at walmart... it's pretty much a guarantee it will need to be a recognizable character that has a chance for a random nostalgia purchase from an in store customer.
