    Good, I don’t even care which deco they use, toy or toon. I just want an Astrotrain after all these years.

    The rumor is that the Dinobots moulds are damaged, or lost. If Takara or Hasbro could release the Dinobots, in almost 18 years of reissuing Generation 1 Transformers on and off, you think they would at least release Grimlock.

    Yes, Takara did reverse engineered some Reissues like Soundwave in the early 2000s, but I am afraid the boat for G1 Reissues might have long sailed. While I am sure there are still some demands, but I would think making better modern toys of the G1 characters are a much wiser investment now.

    They'd definitely make plenty of profit off of reissue Dinobots. It's just a fact. It's not like it's the only obvious fact they are oblivious to. See this poll and my previous comments.

    I suppose I should at least be happy this wasn't one of those cases where people felt like they had to make a misguided and misplaced statement rather than simply making the best choice.

    Now to wait and see if they actually bother to do him properly.

    So happy that Astrotrain won over the seekers. Percy would've been cool too, but Astro is an especially nostalgic toy design to me. It's insane in the membrane, insane in the train! ;)  Shame I'll have to wait over a year. That sucks. :( 

    Umm. Is "Dislike button" an option?

    :p 

    Those molds were lost. Would be impossible without adopting KO style copying methods.

    They make new molds all the time. That's what every new toy is. Every year they make tons of them. They could do 5 here from scratch if they even need to which they probably wouldn't. And they'd still turn profits. Guaranteed.

    Same for Sunstreaker, Mirage, and Wheeljack.

    Nah, Blitzwing is definitely the best of the originals. He actually changed shape, which was a feat with 80's technology.

    Oh I must concur .My eyes have had a little more than a sparkle in them , knowing Devy ect came out ... Now all I can think about , is more G1 Combiners being released ... I think we're in for more than we can even possiblely imagine.

    I've said it before... the only thing more nostalgic for me than G1 style packaging on the Constructicons, would be G1 style packaging on Astrotrain, Wreck-Gar, and Octane. I look forward to missing him and using stock alerts at 2 AM and finally getting him only to have him canceled 25 times before finally getting him shipped. :lol  Because lord knows I MUST have this.

    I vote for the catalogue deco that never made it and retooling so the arms exten longer as the two piece G1 mold insinuated.

    I hope they reissue more combiners, but can they please do them indivually carded so they're cheaper?

    Astrotrain - depends on the colours, if it's the original brochure colours (anime dark grey) then I'm in. Otherwise it's a pass as I already have a common '84 and the TRU reissue.

    Me here hoping we get reissues of Megatron and Soundwave. Optimus Prime just got revealed as a reissue, so it would be fitting if he got him in 2019 or 2020. Soundwave just because he\'s my favorite. But I like Astrotrain. He\'s cool

    Good to know the others are still possible since they were on the list.
