We reported earlier that Toys R Us Canada will be seeing some G1 reissues sometime in the fall. TFW2005's member ChErikS, who is affiliated with TRU, has announced that it will be Perceptor and the Insecticons who will be seeing a reissue in September.

We will keep you up to date on the info as it is made available.

I was just about to post this. Awesome news. I've always wanted a Perceptor. I picked up a set of Insecticons a couple months ago on Ebay pretty cheap. The joints were a little loose, two of the three were missing guns and two were missing wings or mandbiles but otherwise in good condition for G1. So I will defintely be picking up a new set.

I've always wanted a set of Insecticons! This is great news. I guess I'll probably pick Perceptor up too though.

If hasbros smart they'll release them in more places. If they come to the states im getting them. Keep the insecticons in the box since i have them already and i always wanted Perceptor.

I certainly don't want to seem like a wet blanket here, I mean this is cool and all (I'm really digging Preceptor more after his sniper stunt in AHM and would love to see a properly done Classics/Universe version) the Insecticons have always rocked, but I guess I just got so caught up in all of the cool speculation that we did and so many great ideas came out that this kind of let the wind out of the sails a bit. It had always been my hope, especially after the way stuff was designed throughout Beast Wars, that I would someday see the Insecticons redone for the Universe series. The originals were okay but the figures themselves just lost my interest after seeing how much more could be done. It's probably just me. I'm just so fed up with Hasbro at this point that I doubt anything they do, new or re-issued, is going to raise my interest.

I'll at least say that I'm happy that the rest of you are happy so you folks go out there and enjoy something awsome for me. Hell, enjoy it twice just to rub my nose in it. That'd be cool with me. :D :APPLAUSE:

OMG, Perceptor? Did you say Perceptor? I want that one so much! :D Fortunately I already have the insecticons Takara TFC reissue, so I only need Perceptor. In a good way I really hope they go out of stock and be a success, so that Hasbro will be encouraged to reissue more G1 toys, especially non-reissued ones! Man, I'll disassemble my few KOs and eat them piece by piece if they reissue them :P .

Anyway, does anyone know if this will be released in european Toys'R'Us? I hope I'll be able to buy directly in Portugal. Were the old TRU Commemorative Series released worldwide?

This is good news. I have always wanted G1 Perceptor. I have a set of insecticons but the chrome was going yellow so I re-painted those parts with an aluminium effect paint which gave them a more metallic look which I like but it will be nice to have pristine set to go with them.

I hope they are available in Europe.

So many people happy out Perceptor and the inseticons?

I didnt know people loved the insecticons that much to have em back, but I do say I was looking at getting one of em off ebay, a few years back, the one with the face like rumble in cartoon.

Perceptor is nice, I dont have many G1s, but aside from Inferno and Hound who im looking for mainly, this guy may be added to the hunting list :-?

Nice to see everyone happy for once, with the recent downers about the movie line its nice to see everyone excited again apart from one or two, As I'll wait a few years for mine, those of you wanting them, Gotta Catch em All! :mrgreen:

Happy Hunting Guys!

I hope they come out in the U.S. too, but if they don't I might have to try to get them on eBay.
