Jetfire is only a surprise because there was a time that figure could be had for a very low cost. Maybe it disappeared in the past few months or something.

I've been buying alot of takara figures for the past few years now and enjoy them greatly, even though some of Hasbros are still great choices

Can someone clue me in because I don't get it?

It sounds like Takara asked 'What figure do you guys want us to make?" And the top 5 votes so far are for characters that just got figures made.

There must be something else involved that I don't get because it sounds like Takara I'd getting trolled.

I understand Fort Max, though I have the TR version. I already have Legends Jetfire, and I got CW Magnus at a TF shop in the city. It might have been before the street date, actually...anyway, I have no interest in Megs, and I plan on getting TR Windblade and/or Adventure Windblade.

Whereas Hasbro re-releases figures in later waves, TakaraTomy makes all-new production runs should there be a demand for a certain item. In other words, they have a habit of reissuing figures that are off the shelves, not just G1.

The legends poll asked which five should be reissued. Aside from Jetfire, those figures are pretty "fun" to buy on the aftermarket; especially windblade.

Windblade is hard to get a decent price (runs around $55 usually) on the aftermarket, but the others aren't terribly overpriced. Megatron still runs around $60-$70 which is about right for a Japanese Leader class at retail. Jetfire and Ultra Magnus goes for $45-$55 which is reasonable even for a Hasbro release. And Fortress Maximus can be had easily for around $170 now on Mandarake.

So yeah, Windblade is the one in the top 5 that I could see needing a re-release the most. I'm sure if there wasn't that 3 year limit we'd be seeing Metroplex on the top of the list, especially with Trypticon coming. That guy is running $300+ now.

Wow. Every single one of you guys completely mistook what this survey was for. It was specifically for the Legends line. Nothing else. That's why the top five contenders are all Legends toys. Why, the survey's banner even had the Legends logo in it, with a slew of Legends toys all grouped together, right there. How do you miss that?

If anything, y'all should've been pulling for a reissue of the highly coveted Legends Blurr, you fools! :-P

In my defense, I was temporarily blinded by hope

I really want Blurr and Hardhead to reissued. (Takara Blurr has better colors and the Hasbro Blurr's colors fit the Nightbeat headmaster perfectly, Hardhead because he has the mouth face which is more iconic to his character)

I'd rather G1 Japanese exclusive reissues like Dia Atlas, and Grandus.

Yeah, that one surprised me too. Plus aside from the lack of chrome, the difference between that and the hasbro version (which was also easy to find for cheap for a while) wasnt that big, so there is a lot of similar looking jetfire available to purchase. I think we could still find it online for a price similar to what it initially cost.
I am surprised Arcee didnt show up, especially since orders had to be cut for that one.

And Sabr is right on the nose with Blurr.

Oh man I wish but its been years now since Fort Max. And with takara rereleasing G1 Trypticon under the Hasbro Platinum line, I think it is a good sign the Encore line is over.

Na, Takara asked "which legends toys do you want us to reissue", so the answers make sense.

I didn't. :P I simply think it makes sense to at least go as far back as Generations since those figures still blend well with Legends (because most of the early Legends figures were from Hasbro's Generations line pre-Combiner Wars). Just stick them in Legends packaging and maybe change the colors a little like they did with Springer's Legends release.

In Canada, perhaps, but the only Jetfire I've ever seen in person was the one I bought off HTS.

I am surprised Arcee didnt show up, especially since orders had to be cut for that one.

They made up for that with a second run alongside Chromia later. (I bought two) She's readily available on the aftermarket now, for around half of what Windblade goes for since she didn't get a second run like the other two girls.
