Late last month pre-orders started popping up for a new round of G1 Optimus Prime and Soundwave reissues. Thanks to an eBay auction we have our first look at this latest version of G1 Optimus Prime, which appears to come with the lighter gray trailer that was part of the 25th Anniversary reissue set. Images mirrored below.

Awesome! Might make a cool Christmas gift to myself. Always wanted one but never got around to it.

Ok. So they released the 2002 TRU reissue again except with the light grey trailer from the 25th anniversary. Hmm! :BOT:

Odd box that, it manages to hide the toy quite well.

Honestly, I always try to find something good to say about vintage pieces being reissued. But seeing how Hasbro handled this one, I'll just not say anything at all. >:oP

And besides, I am going to be okay without this in my collection... On account that I do not have Convoy, Rodimus Convoy, Super Ginrai, God Ginrai, Star Saber, Dai Atlas (at least the non-Alternity version), Battle Convoy, Nebulon Quest Super Convoy, Grimlock (as he became Supreme Commander in Marvel Comics), Powermaster Optimus Prime, and/or Rodimus Prime either in my collection or being pre-ordered. >:oP

Hmm, not getting him since I have the New Year Prime with Matrix, and blue windows/eyes (best so far)

I do wish they would reissue him with that awesome new Cartoon accurate head that the Music Label had.

Then I'll get another G1 optimus, and only then.

While I do agree with many of you saying most collectors have these, the next best scenario is that the release of these two figures tries to capture new collectors into the franchise. Who or what character is more know in the transformers universe than Optimus prime and soundwave? Let others enjoy the ownership of great transformers figures. There'll be time for us collectors out there to continue our worldly transformers endeavor, the quest for more cooler transformers. Hehehehe

So, am I correct in assuming that this Prime is Exactly the same as the 25th anniversary one that came out with the DVDs and comic? Does anybody know if there are any variations from the aforementioned one? If so, what are they? I collet G1 Primes and would like to know if I drop the dosh or not
