More Generation 1 News
Toysrus.ca has updated with a preorder page for the recent boxset three pack of reissue G1 Insecticons. The Platinum Edition set has been seen in the US at K-Mart stores, as well as being available in Hasbro marketed locations in Asia. Toys R Us Canada lists these for shipping in April at a price of $109.99 CAD, or about $88 US. This sadly seems to indicate K-Mart was not far off SRP with their pricing. This is listed as a Toys R Us exclusive in Canada, and there's no indication whether locations in the US will stock these or if they are exclusive to K-Mart.
Humble Bundle and award-winning publisher IDW Publishing, in conjunction with Hasbro, are reteaming to offer the perfect opportunity to build a digital TRANSFORMERS comic collection. Not only does the bundle feature multiple collected volumes of the hit TRANSFORMERS series, it also boasts some of the most recent issues to date, making it easy to catch up to speed on the latest stories.
Griffin of the Ozformers forums had the opportunity to go to Toy Fair Australia, and while nothing new was seemingly on display he had the opportunity to talk to Hasbro Australia about this year's offerings. In addition to confirming the Platinum Edition reissues of G1 Blaster and Perceptor, he was also told about the Trypticon reissue... and even reissues of the G1 Dinobots! It's unknown which or how many Dinobots will be reissued, but considering none of those molds have been rereleased since 1993, it's a welcome announcement. Keep reading for more details!
One day, should I move on from Transformers collecting, writing, hobbying and all related activities, I will have memories. Memories of my favourite figures, the best conventions and stories, and the people I met during my tenure in the fandom. People and things will stand out because they were unique, unforgettable and awesome. Jon “Napalm” Strong will be one of those people. Unconstrained by focus, bandwagons or what people think of him, Jon is an inspirational person and collector. So modest and humble was his response to being interviewed, I almost wish you could see the true Napalm!
Kids Logic has posted images to their Facebook page featuring the next series of Kids Nation small-scale super deformed-style figures. Included in this assortment are Megatron, Smokescreen, Jazz, Wheeljack, and Ironhide- with a special gold-colored Megatron listed as "Extra." Release date is still vague - 2nd Quarter 2015 - but for now keep reading to see all the photos!
