    I like your idea but I would like to see hosehead maybe be a retool of kingdom inferno with headmaster port and it can also double as artfire.

    Would be cool to see G1 reissues of the Headmasters but that way to far for Hasbro to do that and plus the characters they been chosen in the reissue line has been mostly popular characters or well known characters that casual fans know.Heck I don't think Hasbro even have the molds for the original Headmasters anymore.
    Update: I some people saying it could be either reissues of TR or it could be the Headmaster Juniors.

    Oh Hasbro can f—k clean off if they’re doing a GIJoe with us. G1 you’d go in G1 boxes. Wanna rerelease TR? Fine, but don’t try and pass it off as retro.

    Their disrespect of their own IP is stunning.

    why is putting newer stuff in retro packaging """disrespect"""???????

    are the Marvel Legends on retro ToyBiz cards, and Star Wars The Black Series on vintage Kenner cards, """""disrespectful"""""???????????

    You must not be a Star Wars fan, cuz we love the vintage collection look with new figures.

    These potential reissues could probably be a response to this situation. They are going nuts over Greenlight on EBay. Nobody should have to pay huge markups to get widely available figures even from a few years ago. It takes the fun out of it.

    I'm agreeing with folks on the reissue of the rarer sorts, though I'd also like to throw my voice in for a fixed Weirdwolf.

    I like that figure and would rather have a version of it that isn't guaranteed to eventually break

    use the heads from the Takara Releases PLUS super retooled bodies so they aren’t noticeable

    Papahawk approves


    Aah yes, Wilder, Bullhorn, and Cancer

    What are you smoking? It wasn't disrespect when they put Ectotron in a G1 style box and Titans Return stuff in G1 style boxes isn't disrespect either.

    True, didnt think about it, but Yes, any of those or the Decepticons Fangry, Squeezeplay and Horri-Bull...would fit in well with Beasties, and could also be repaint of some of the new molds...

    I'd buy all of those! And I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro added some Targetmasters and Powermasters into the assortment as Headmasters like they did in Titans Return, meaning we could also finally get:

    Pointblank
    Sureshot
    Quickmix
    Landfill
    Slapdash
    Joyride

    That'd be nice, but of the suggested re-issues (the basic 7 first batch of headmasters), only one (Brainstorm, which was some sort of damned exclusive) is in any way difficult to get. I got all mine for at or even less than standard retail price within the last 6 months, and that was including postage. So I'm not sure that that could be construed as a motivation for Hasbro.

    Which isn't to say I don't want it happening, oh no, I'm all for it - bring 'em back, then bring out the rest of TR toys, and then put out the rest of the G1 headmasters and targetmasters that haven't seen a proper toy for over 30 years, just as people are calling for here :)
