Toy News: Official photos of upcoming Platinum Edition G1 reissues

In the coming year Transformers fans can expect to see reissues of Generation One Transformers on shelves (and online of course) as "Platinum Edition" reissues. The Seeker set is already out at Target and the others are coming soon with the Blaster and Perceptor set to be sold at Target. I believe Trypticon will be a Target reissue as well, but I am not 100% sure on that. This is a great chance to get these toys if you've missed out all these years!

In all the excitement generated by San Diego Comic-Con 2015 I had neglected to upload these fun images of the KRE-O "Class of 1985" boxed set being sold at SDCC 2015 for $60 at the Hasbro booth! This set also features several extra pieces that pay homage to the film "Back to the Future" (which came out in 1985) including a record called "Jetfire Be Good" and an extra "hair" accessory that looks like Doc Brown's wacky hair! This is definitely one of the highlights of the convention exclusives.
