What's the point though?
Especially because the SS86 Commander Optimus Prime is coming. :-?

Probably just trying to fill the coffers a little from those who might be unaware of the Commander version coming, as well as maybe those who missed it the last time and have no interest in a $90 version.

Looks like an obvious cash grab on an old mold one last time. lol

I did think that the timing was highly dubious--- ss86 commander prime hitting 9/2/24--- perfect pulse timing!

Evidently, Hasbro's putting out more Optimus Prime toys for the 40th anniversary.

I just said the same thing to a friend in an email...
Although I think this reissue looks great, I would've wanted the blue eyes over the yellow.

I'm thinking we'll get a peak at CC Prime within the next two months for sure if not next month.

It's strange. Looking around at some of the different preorders for this figure, some of the pics have yellow eyes, and some of them have blue. And yet, all of the yellow-eyed pics are of CG renders rather than the actual figure, so it's uncertain as to which eye color the figure will have. But it is just a straight reissue of the Earthrise release, then the eyes ought to end up being blue.

Hasbro literally took a bunch of random stock photos from 2019 and threw them on the pre-order page, none of these are new images. You'll recall the figure went through like 4 different iterations, starting with this CGI ahead of NYCC 2019 and then the yellow eyes and gray fists in the display at NYCC 2019. It wasn't until a lot of complaining that they settled on the final colors in pretty rapid turnaround.

I'm still trying to figure out if it's a direct reissue of the Earthrise figure, packaging and all, or if it'll be in united packaging because Pulse lists it as "Transformers Legacy United Leader Class War For Cybertron: Earthrise Optimus Prime Action Figure". BBTS and EE both say it's a rerelease, but Pulse seems to be saying United packaging.

I didn't save any images of the ER figure to compare with this new listing, but it does look exactly the same to me. The reissue of Jetfire was the same packaging despite it being three years later than its initial release, so it could be the same for prime. Although the production of Commander Class and Leader Class are likely two different things, which if he's packed in a case with other Leaders I assume they'd want uniform packaging? Or is this a Fan Channel/Exclusive not to hit regular retail?

I'm curious why they just didn't plop him into SS86 packaging, maybe because they don't want it to mimic Commander release in case it's still in circulation when that releases? I mean I wouldn't rebuy every bot in SS86 packaging but I would buy a few select characters Like VW Bee, Prime to go with my unopened Jazz, Hot Rod and Kup! However, with the plastic window gone I don't know that I want anymore.

It appears to be a fan channel thing, he isn't on the leaked wave listing. Though it's still unknown if he'll be released in Earthrise packaging or not thanks to the weird listing on Pulse. Most if not all retailers are just recycling their old Earthrise listing with the same stock photos instead of a new one.
