Apparently TRU canada has a listing for the fans built combiner in their system alongside listings for Menasor/superion sets plus a platinum planet of Junk set. All have no orders as of yet so this may just be placeholders on online only stock
The SKU's and canadian retail pricing are as follows
Fan built combiner 778971 149.99
Menasor 778969 149.99
Superion 778966 149.99
Planet of Junk Platinum set 736239 109.99
This confirms that Toysrus will be distributing these boxsets in Canada (which may not be the case in the US since distribution has been different in the past). Judging from the Canadian prices, this would seem to be box sets which allude to the following price ranges for their retail release in the US:
Victorion would be between 100-120$ US
G2 Menasor would be between 100-120$ US
G2 Superion would be between 100-120$ US
Platinum Planet of Junk set would be about 80$ US
This last one is the most interesting since it is a new set that none of us were aware of yet. Hasbro had alluded to more G1 reissue sets coming out recently and this could be a reissue of sorts. 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the movie and the first time we visited the Planet of Junk so it may be a set of G1 toys related to this planet or that scene in the film. It may also simply be a reissue of the various editions of the Reveal the Shield Wreck Gar mold since the purpose of that figure was to be able to accommodate another figure to ride it, a feature that lends itself nicely to a release of multiple figures.
Tell us what you would hope this set to be and let the speculation begin!
