Default Not really news, so I've moved it to Toys...

Shockwave - if they can reach a licensing arrangement with Toy Box, who knows.

Galvatron - I see no reason why not

Scorponok - I see no reason why not. Only problem may be the drop-test.

Fortress Maximus - the mould doesn't come up to current safety spec. else it would have been reused in RiD

Rodimus Prime - reissued already in Japan. Imminent in the US.

Megatron - reissued twice in Japan. Contravenes US toy safety standards.

Soundwave - recently reissued in Japan. Plausible for US release.

Reflector - I see no reason why not

Devastator - I see no reason why not

Menasor - I see no reason why not

Superion - I see no reason why not

Bruticus - I see no reason why not. They've been reusing the mould lately (twice in RiD), so there's no problem there. It's just down to whether they decide it's worth doing it with a couple of other versions still available. Doesn't usually make a difference.

Computron - I see no reason why not

Wheeljack - I'm not aware of anything to stop it

Hound - I'm not aware of anything to stop it

Mirage - I'm not aware of anything to stop it

Trailbreaker - was reissued in Japan a while back. Perfectly plausible.

Astrotrain - the next Japanese reissue

Blitzwing - I'm not aware of anything to stop it

I wonder if it'll be restricted to doing the various Jets?

or if they'll pick members of one or more of the gestalt teams?

I think it's more likely that they'll release repaints of the gestalt teams in new series like they did for rid

thinking about it i doubt we'd see any combining alternators as thats part of what Energon is about!

i'd hazard a guess at seeing individuals like Dragstrip, Motormaster, Swindle, Vortex, Slingshot, Groove and perhaps First-Aid

Shockwave- Don't count on it Hasbro and Takara don't have the rights to mold and Hasbro lost the rights to the name.

Galvatron- Possiable but who knows about the mold

Scorponok-I wouldn't bet on it due to as Brendocon said and all the little parts as well.

Fortress Maximus-Failed the drop test so don't bet on it.

Rodimus Prime-Strong possiablity

Megatron- New safety laws would make this one alomost immposible to see an US reissue and even if they did he would have a horrid new paint job and an orange cap on the end of the
gun barrel

Soundwave-Hasbro has no plans for him

Reflector-Hasbro has no plans for him

Bruticus-Why should they he's been reissued a half-dozen times
G1, G2, Mission: Combiner, Car Robots, and 2 times in RiD

Devastator
Menasor
Superion
Bruticus
Computron
Don't count on seeing these guys around any time near soon since according to Hasbro/Takara they lost or destroyed the molds to them


Wheeljack
Hound
Mirage
Trailbreaker
Possiable next year reissues

Astrotrain-the next Japanesse reissue
Blitzwing-possiable as well

Not that tiger stripes piece of ****, and how could thy lose the mold to these guys and the name to Shockwave plus how did all of the good toys end up dangerous. I tell u business sucks these days. I'm still wonderin' why Thunder cracker costs $5 less than Starscream/Skywarp.

I hope it's not part of RID. I have everything in it, and it would be ridiculous to put another fig out in that line, since they have TFU for repaints now.

Names are trademarks. They're only valid for so long and lapse if you don't renew them.

Hasbro stopped using the Shockwave name, the TM expired and they've been unable to reacquire it.

They didn't lose the mould, as it was never theirs to begin with. Hasbro licensed many toys from other manufacturers aside from Takara. Shockwave was one of them.

[and before anybody asks, yes Takara released Laserwave, but that was also licensed from the other manufacturer. The only instance of Takara releasing a TF they didn't design.]
