    I saw them at Target one time at full price and decided not to get them, foolishly.

    Well hopefully this means good news is coming for the joe collectors! I do like Hasbro making these exclusive sets easier to get down the road. Wouldn’t mind a rerelease though if some more recent figures that were super hard to find like Twin Twist and Misfire

    I wasn’t aware these were particularly desirable or hard to find within the US? I had the set up on Mercari at $70 shipped for months with no biters.

    These exclusive re-releases are making me rethink my decision to not buy into the nouveau CHUG aesthetic. Honestly, the smattering of exclusives ranging from semi-important to significant characters (Coneheads, Prowl & Ironhide, Bumblebee, etc) and the inability to purchase them at a semi-reasonable price after the fact is the main thing putting me off from it, and between this and the Thundercracker/Skywarp set, those barriers are rapidly being taken down. I'll have to have a think about it, since I wouldn't mind owning the seasons 1-2 cast.

    Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege Voyager Seekers Three-Pack

    Well damn I guess I can open mine now. Was leaving it in the box because its the only ones I paid over retail for. Granted they are charging 15 over retail for it. Must be order from the takara mall issues that are coming out. I highly doubt they were just sitting somewhere unsold.

    Not the seekers I needed a reissue of, but nice for those who did and this raises hope for a Conehead reissue.

    Damn, I really overpaid for them.

    Hope they announce Prowl/Ironhide and Ratchet/Lifeline soon.

    I'm really hoping this is a good sign that all the Earthrise Coneheads will make their way to online retail as well. The Dirge\Ramjet is going for far too much on the aftermarket (hovering around $300), that is just outright scalper pricing. Like you said, those three are fairly important characters to complete a collection. To not have them readily available to collectors is a shame. Fingers crossed I guess :)

    It's good to see these Seeker reissues happening.

    Hopefully this means that Hasbro will get the confidence to make more repaints now. :D

    Seriously, one would think this was going to be re-released eventually.

    It's so hard to tell because it's like the old saying about leading a horse to water.

    They did go to clearance. Even I saw them marked down and this area stocks like Soviet grocery stores. Plus they survived through at least two decent sales online. That's where I picked up a couple to sell/trade later. So on the one hand, it bums me out that I won't be able to get retail for these when/if the toy shows open back up. Yet on the other hand, I want to root for Hasbro sticking it to retailers that don't stock their shelves by reissuing exclusives. Very conflicted here.

    My expectation is that we'll see people complain about "missing out," again, once this run has come and gone because some collectors only want what they can't have.
