The Commemorative Series returns to Toys 'R' Us!
Back in 2002, Toys 'R' Us began a new Transformers toyline exclusive to their store chain called the "Commemorative Series". This line consisted entirely of rereleases of several Generation One figures, but with some minor alterations due to the current toy safety laws. The toyline slowly met its end around 2004 and was never heard from again... until now!
A few weeks ago, Cybertron.ca member megashockwave had found an interesting item in the Toys R Us Canada Computers.
TRANSFORMERS UNVRS G1 COMMEMORATIVE SRS
($49.99, SKU: 847585, UPC: 653569444213)
With "September 2009" as an estimated shipping date.
More recently, TFW2005 member and Toys 'R Us employee ChErikS has confirmed the identify of several Generation One reissues that will be part of this Commemorative Series revival. During one of the company's meetings, it was confirmed that four of these reissuses will include the Insecticons (Shrapnel, Kickback, and Bombshell) and, a personal favorite of one of Unicron.com's head admins, Perceptor!
