Valued site sponsor YaHobby.com is the first to have Reissue Perceptor and the Reissue Insecticons for sale. Their pricing for the sets brings awareness to those wishing to buy Perceptor and Insecticons domestically as they are priced $55.99 US and $45.99 US respectively. This is a considerable adjustment as previous Reissues were not priced so high.

The prices likely include markup from retail at TRU.

I'm going to guess $35-$40 US at retail, based on previous figures and inflation.

Both of these are a must for me. Because of IDW's portrayal of Perceptor combined with the brains of his G1 character he must join my collection. And the Insecticons have always been some of my favorites of all time, I still have all my originals even though they're so worn from growing up with me that they're in no condition to display & I have a set of miniature KOs that I got when I was very young as well. The KOs even combine!!! Now if FansProject would just make a good armor set and Sniper Rifle for Perceptor I would be in hog heaven. :-B

They look really awesome! I want at least Perceptor since I have the TFC Insecticons. Does anyone know if these insecticons have 3 energon cubes like the TFC reissue by Takara? From the box it appears not, but I'd like to know for sure.

I still have my originals, however I will most likely pick these up to display with my classics from TRU when I find them.

Should be in the very near future, their display at one of the conventions said available 9/1 with an MSRP of $34.99. Now we know that they have missed that date at retail, lets just hope they don't miss the MSRP as well. Can't find the pic right off hand, but that is what the card said on the display that someone posted a pic of a few days ago.

I'd like to know too, those energon cubes from the Book-style reissue if pretty sweet. I think Hasbro needs to release some energon cubes for TFs that the 3rd parties are making. :-?

Well I have ordered Perceptor and the Insecticons along with SDCC Soundwave and the shippingcosts are 24 euro's to the Netherlands. Just to give you an indication perhaps.

And at credits, it's not Torneria but Torneira :wink:

Sorry, I thought you were Portuguese because of your username being torneira, which in Portuguese means tap/faucet :) .

The site isn't mine, I'm just one of the users. A friend of mine created it on Ning. We're trying to build a Portuguese Transformers social network for the Portuguese fans to keep in touch, etc. We're still very few :P .
