I know this isn´t a ´rumor´ but I think it´s fairly important. You see, I just got back from Day 2 of Wizard World right here in Chicago. I had the opportunity to check out some of the G1 Reissues. You´ll all be happy to know that they do feature the chrome, rubber wheels, and die cast metal. The packaging is very G1-ish. Of course, the boxes were only mock-ups, so they could change. They appear to be a lot like the Takara re-issue boxes (ie. No top flap). Ultra Magnus missles were either on display wrong or they were altered. Prime comes with a GREY roller and his smokestacks are a bit shorter than the classic G1 version.
Also on display was God Ginrai. It appears he will be sold (again as a TRU exclusive) in English Powermaster Optimus Prime packaging. No word yet on what Godbomber´s name will be changed to.
This is all subject to change before August 15th though.
As for the armada figures: These are absolutely incredible. Pictures do not do them justice. I can´t state enough just how incredible Starscream and Super Optimus Prime look. These are some of the best transformers we´ll ever see. The detailing on them is amazing. Even the mini-cons look nice and feature quite a bit of detail work in vehicle mode.
Hasbro reps wouldn´t comment on the new movie though...
