    Since those Asian generations arrived at TRUs, is there a chance those Asian HASBRO Commemorative re-issues can be in stock at TRUs locations soon?

    I'd have to say it is a possibility if hasbro asia starts destributing them

    While possible, it does not seem very likely. The asian generations stuff is a special case. Lately, Hasbro Asia has been getting a ton of exclusive repaints and re-releases. They are a separate entity and make their own decisions. I also don't see TRU really wanting the reissues again. They didn't do all that well the first time around.

    I'd put them in the same category as United Ultra Magnus, Energon Bruticus Repaint and both Seeker sets. It's possible they may come out, but don't go expecting it.

    That was in 2002 when Tfs were not as popular as they are today. There could be a market now.
