Rumor Mill: Platinum Edition G1 Insecticons, Conehead Seekers?
A handful of photos making the rounds on social media today have piqued the interest of G1 enthusiasts. Seems Hasbro may be offering another set of reissued G1 Insecticons in the near future, but also teased in the photos are reissues of the three ‘conehead’ seekers – Dirge, Thrust, and Ramjet!
The photos, as you can see, show the three Insecticons packaged as one set, just like their 2008 Transformers Universe reissue, and are emblazoned with the Generations series Platinum Edition packaging dress. Interesting to note, one photo showing off the back of the box clearly shows off Dirge, Thrust, and Ramjet, hinting at another future release. If this pans out, it’ll mark the first time Thrust and Ramjet have been reissued by Hasbro (Dirge was released as part of Hasbro’s Commemorative Series in 2004, but planned reissues of Thrust and Ramjet failed to materialize).
Excited by the chance to finish off your seeker army? Bored by more G1 reissues? Head into the Allspark Forums and tell us what you think!
