    So about a year ago I remember coming across the G1 Platinum Edition Insecticon re-issues. I remember I saw them at K-Mart. I had chosen to pass on that three pack. However, I recently have seen on amazon.com that there's some other Platinum Edition G1 re-issues: Thrust, Dirge, and Ramjet were together in a set, Blaster and Perceptor were together in a two pack, and Astrotrain and Blitzwing were another two pack. Were any of these others ones available in stores as well? I'm thinking about picking up the Astrotrain/Blitzwing two pack and the Perceptor/Blaster two pack. However, the Perceptor/Blaster set is a little pricey. I'm wondering if it is/was available in stores.

    I bought Astrotrain and Blitzwing off Amazon during a sale. They're cool to own, even if just for the wacky G2 color schemes.
