I think you're dreaming. Star Wars makes way more money than any other Hasbro license, and dominated media attention from 1997 and the Special Editions through the end of the Prequels. Yet Hasbro still refused to release a simple updated version of the original Death Star Playset regardless of how much they go for on eBay.
I realize that the new AT-TE and giant Millenium Falcon may hint at bigger and better things. But I just don't know if they're ready to risk that with GI Joe yet.
Forget it Jake, it's Hisstank.

i heard that there will be a part in upcoming figure packs to make a weather dominator. you have to buy all the sets and each piece will make weather dominator thats almost a foot big. maybe not terror drome size but still a nice piece.
check out my store for great deals

after clocking out at the drome i also realized this set could be done in pieces, like the weather dominator. it would help on shelf space if all pieces were modular and worked independently and together. kind of like the battleforce 2 thousand set.
i have the flagg, drome, mccenter, general, rolling thunder, the defiant and despite the lack of room i am running out of, i would buy one more of each of these if released, maybe two. all of these would not peg-warm. the 25th evokes the old days as the earlier lines did not. a lot of those things were terrible, but i still bought them.
keep in mind, when they developed the skystriker they made a curious clip system on the back on the jet for what? for the catch clip and rope on the flagg. the flagg hadn't been developed yet. all i am saying that it possible due to the continued success of the 25th. i am beginning to think it could happen, despite what hasbro says and i am a registered pessimist.
they will have to work up to something like the examples i have provided, just to generate more geek exitement. for the peeps that have the old ones and for the ones who don't especially.

Wow, that sure would be nice. The post saying that the mold is broken makes me sad, though. Even if it wasn't broken, they probably wouldn't release it anyway. What with all these safety laws and drop test stuff, everyone is too scared to release these behemoth playsets. The times of the huge playsets are long over, it seems. :(

Yeah well, broken molds is just a better excuse than "we're not gonna release it, ever again." If they really, really wanted to rerelease the mold, they'd either fix the broken portions or cast them again. That said, as much as I'd like to own a Terrordrome, I don't see it coming about anytime soon.

Ok, I've seen " They said, they said" about Hasbro saying no large playsets. They also said 3.75 was canceled how many times ? They then said it will be direct to consumer. When I wanted to order the sets the site was sold out , because they were all at Toys R Us . The sad fact is they back out of their statements and say its for the best interest for the collectors. If we buy it they will make it, they are taking a gamble on that Cloverfield monster , why don't they do the same with the Dome piece ? Take orders and produce accordingly or limit it and if the response is there make more . J.M.O.
