Seibertron.com member Hyper-Chicken has found an interesting post over at Cybertron.ca

It seems their member megashockwave has found an interesting item in the Toys R Us Canada computers:
TRANSFORMERS UNVRS G1 COMMEMORATIVE SRS
($49.99, SKU: 847585, UPC: 653569444213)


There's an estimated shipping date of September 2009.

Is this another G1 re-issue like the previous TRU commemorative series? Or perhaps signs that the Universe line may not be dead after all?

Stay tune to Seibertron.com as we find out more.

Not if it says G1 Commemorative :P

Although that would be kickass to see that again at retail

If it didn't say Commemorative series I'd say "oh boy...it's another frickin Unicron repaint..." The question is: who is it? Prime and Magnus were more expensive; Prowl and the others were cheaper. SO someone in size between those two...not the jets...they already did those. Soundwave was $35 too...makes you think, doesn't it? :-?

It's a set of 10 Wheelies. I'm sure of it!

A set like that you say,
For even 5 dollars I would not pay.

A Wheelie troop-building set?

...*shudder*

How about 5 repaints of Classics Bumblebee as Hubcap, Bumper, Tap-Out, Glyph, and Wasp?

That could be cool but I wouldn't want Hubcap or Bumper as their color schemes are too close to 'Bee.

If they did Glyph, Tap-out I would be interested. Wasp with a modded head would be pure win, And I'd love to see Shattered Bugbite, but I doubt they would do that one.

Maybe it's a U.S. release of Masterpiece Grimlock.

Just because it's a "G1 commemorative" doesn't mean it's an actual G1 figure. Here's hoping. :D

If the recent Prime re-issue was $70, well, this could be almost anything with enough 'extras'.

It's G1 Jetfire guys, I mean really it is. 8)

Or a G1 Devastator gift set.

You have to think movie tie-ins here! :D

Isn't that Canadian dollars? If it is, than it's about $43 USD. Anyway, it's probably the new Soundwave reissue with Ratbat, Buzzsaw, Laserbeak and Ravage. But I'd really like to see new TRU reissues (characters different from the ones on TakaraTomy's Encore series), especially if they show up in the portuguese ToysRUs. On Monday I got a Leader Class Animated Ultra Magnus for about $27.50 USD there on clearance :) .

What I'm hoping/praying:

-technically, Ricochet is not an North American reissue...so...I'm hoping we'll get all the other repainted "re-issues", like Artfire, albeit altered so that it won't piss off the vintage collectors. Though I do plan to get the vintage stuff eventually.

-something funny like, Wheeljack made from Sideswipe's body. Re-painted, new stickers, and even a remolded head. :lol:

-seekers with new color schemes, names, and bios.

-repainted and remolded G1 Blurr as Arcee

-1986 movie characters...so many to choose from: Blurr, Kup, Cyclonus, Scourge, Springer, Wreck-Gar, Octane, and/or Gnaw. Since $50 is too much for just a deluxe, maybe add in a Minibot, CD or DVD, and a reprinted Marvel comic book

The pessimist in me says:

-G1 Bumblebee, Pretender Bumblebee (robot only), and Classics Bumblebee as a 3-pack

-If it's Jazz, we'll get the G1 (with 2 less missiles and less stickers), recently released Legends or Action Master version, and an newly released Jazz in Classics form as a 3-pack.

-or 2 recently released deluxes repainted into their G1 counterparts

-Topspin, Twin Twist, and the recently released Roadbuster as a 3-pack, and they'll call it the Wreckers Pack

-Topspin, Twin Twist, and a repainted Evac as Whirl as a 3-pack, and they'll call it the Wreckers Pack

-3 repainted recently released basics, and a whole lot of unnecessary packaging, and a comic book

-2 repainted recently released deluxes, and a CD or DVD

-all G1 human characters with various accessories, Spike, Sparkplug, Chip, Carly, Daniel, Dr Archiville, Raul, Shawn (or Sean) Berger, Marissa Fairborne, Dirk Manus, and Astoria Waldorf


MARK THIS POST TO SEE IF I WAS RIGHT!!! Or even close.

I would love that. I wish the other Masterpiece Seekers had come with someone other than Arkeville.

Throw in the lass from Return Of Optimus Prime, and that'd be a must-havr.
