    I'm betting in 25th anniversary packaging. I can only imagine all 4 of these as one box though, for $50. I mean, that's the price of the SDCC reissue Soundwave and he comes with 4 cassetticons on TOP of him being an exclusive.

    Awesome. My vintage perceptor is ridiculously far from complete. It has the scope thankfully. But that's it.
    Insecticons with their elusive chrome weapons will be enough to get my interest in them.

    For $50 perceptor and the insecticons in a cool box set would be something I'd consider for MISB.

    Not sure how well a giant microscope and 3 diaclone bug tanks compliment 25th anniversary prime. But its g1.

    Nothing new? Bummer. They should have really worked to find something that hasnt been reissued yet

    hu? none of these HAVE been reissued by Hasbro (and that's ALL that counts- why would they care about someone overseas releasing anything at all?)

    If these come to the UK I will 100% get a Perceptor.

    I already have TFC Insecticons, but if they all come as a 4 pack, then I shall have some clones, I guess!

    awesome as both those are pretty tricky to get as collection reissues esp the insecticons that command crazy secondary prices.

    hopefully the hasbro versions arent too butchered, the takara reissues were solid, perceptor seems especially well made.

    Well, that makes a lot of sense, what with ROTF having a character that turns into a microscope and a bunch of robot insects.

    Have Perceptor already from TFC but the Insecticons were just to much on e-bay so this is great news for me. If they do come in one box what am I going to do with another perceptor?

    This is amazing news. Fantastic; I had half-expected Hasbro to take the easy route and just reissue a recent Encore or something, but this is better than I could've hoped, esp. given the crazy price of the TFC Insecticon set.

    Hurrah!

    Awesome news, but I have to wonder about the chrome on the Insecticons, especially Kickback's wings and Shrapnel's antlers. If Prime's stacks get neutered and the weapons of the Autobots cars get dechromed, how are they going to look? I have no problem with dechromed, I just hope they use a decent colour of paint or plastic.

    I have the TF Japan Preceptor reissue, also have KO insecticons- so I will likely grab the insecticons

    Awesome news for those who missed the Takara reissues. I already have both but if the packaging is nice enough, I may pick up a set to keep MISB. Hell I'll pick up the Insecticons regardless to build an army of them.

    That would so look cool with my Encore Metroplex and Encore Omega Supreme...

    Do I pray for an Encore release or just buy what I can get...I cannot have both!
