    I'm sure this question has been asked before. Does anyone know why Hasbro, Takara Tomy, have not released any reissues of the Dinobots? Did they lose the molds?

    That’s the rumor, that the molds were lost/stolen.

    The molds are currently in the hands of KO makers in China and their reissues (with those molds) are easily available all over eBay. If you want them, just buy them. Hasbro will never get the molds back

    I've got (by accident, seller mistake) a reissue of a G1 Grimlock that I don't want.

    Any takers? :D
