    Question Transformers Re-Issues

    I was just wondering if anybody has seen the new Transformers Commemorative Seriess III consisting of Jazz, Silverstreak, and thundercracker yet? I've looked on Transformers sites, but most of them seem pretty focused on Armada, which I'm not really into.
    I did find a report sayint they've shown up in Canada, but has anyone in the States seen them yet?

    They're not out in the States yet. They were pused back to April 15 or 22 .. can't remember which.


    At any rate, I would recomend the Takara reissues anyway. They are mostly original and do not have any viagra missles like the Hasbro reissues.

    Holy Crap! These things are EXPENSIVE. I bought Optimus Prime 'cause my original is decimated, but my checkbook vetoed Ultra Magnus at $40+ and I haven't even entertained the idea of getting Powermaster Prime and Starscream.

    I loved the Constructicons and the Combaticons. I hope they reissue the builder sets.

    Series III was pushed back to April 15th per the TRU website.

    I have seen all of them at retail at least once, except Power Master Optimus, which I don't really like that much anyway.

    I went ahead and pre-ordered series III, from the website.
    May the force be with you.

    Are you judging that from the original American PMOP? The new one makes the old one seem like a knockoff! The cab is diecast and the fists on the Super Prime retract. And of course you get God Bomber, called APex here is the states. It's a lot better than the original US release.

    Don't count on that... the Combaticons are very unlikely... the were just released twice in the Robots in Disguise line. Once sold seperatly, and then a Wal-Mart exclusive pack. And Hasbro has stated that most of the other gestault molds have been lost, and it would be to expensive to make news one..

    I hate when Hasbro uses excuses like that one. It can't be any more expensive than the new molds for Armada toys!

    At any rate, I got the Starscream reissue, and although the missles look goofy, it's pretty cool otherwise. And I believe I still have a lot of the old Jazz and Bluestreak weapons rolling around in a box, so I'd rather get the US versions rather than hunt the Takara versions on the internet. Although I wish I could afford a gold Jazz or clear Starscream. I check E-Bay every once in a while for those.

    I won't be getting the Thundercracker though, because I have my old, beat-up, almost-complete one from 1984. It was the second Transformer I ever got, and it's still in good condition!

    My old Thundercracker is missing his wing. I used to chalk it up to "battle damage" and leave him in robot mode. But now he's in a box with all my other vintage TFs.

    Anybody been picking up those Fun4all keychains of the original Mini Autobots? Not exactly rereleases, but close enough! They even got the original techspecs on the back! I got the first four and am waiting for Gears and Huffer to come out.
