HAS11326

Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have updated with preorders for new runs of three more Generation 1 Commemorative series releases. Originally offered nearly 10 years back now, these three are we assume the next items to be reissued once more for the burgeoning Asian market interest in Transformers.

The three getting new reissues this time out are:

Astrotrain
Ultra Magnus
Powermaster Optimus Prime with Apex Armor, aka Super Ginrai with Godbomber.

    Maybe an MP Astrotrain in the works? I don't see the point in buying these when you can get the same thing MISB on eBay for cheaper.

    My God Ginrai has some paint wear on his cab, and a broken ratchet in his cab's hips, so I got excited for this until I saw the price.

    Good call. That would be ANOTHER way to re-paint MP10.

    Also: on the "mp astrotrain?" rumor... all the other recent re-issues have been turned into MPs shortly aftarward: hot rod, prime, soundwave, sideswipe, etc. So maybe?

    I know for awhile prices on Ebay were pretty stupid for both the Takara and Hasbro reissue (like $200 +) but now they seem to have leveled off to about $100 - $120.
