I wouldn't really rely on those images for accuracy, as they're the same as the ones used for the last release in the 2014 line. Expect them to be straight re-releases, without weapons. In fact, only the packaging may be changed, with the black background color like they used for later Legion releases.

I wonder why these would get rereleased. I doubt they were ever that popular of figures that it'd warrant them being released again. Heck, I can get all these guys, plus the Ultra Magnus and Cliffjumper figures, at my local dollar store. And a bootleg oversized/neon version of the Prime mould at the same place.

You know, Hasbro did release them just before Age of Extinction hit theaters as a promotion. Maybe it's for The Last Knight?

Just a white redeco of Prime, nothing special. There was also a Skywarp (of course).

The Ultra Magnus amd Skywarp do look really good, wish they were rereleasing them instead of Optimus and Starscream.

The little CW Skywarp is still readily available if you'd prefer that one. Not the same mold and a lil bigger but nicer all round. :P

Does Hasbro really think sticking a sword on top of a truck is the best weapon storage space? They do have a habit of sticking weird (and often) terrible looking accessories on really weird places of otherwise well chosen vehicle disguise forms... If I saw a real truck carrying a big sword on top I'd be like "hm... that seems MIGHTY SUSPICIOUS!"

There is so many ways to do this in a way that would be more interesting.

For example make the Optimus G2 Prime colours with black or purple legs, or even make him like some version of Evasion Prime like with flames on the side.

Also that bumblebee is very like the one from a giftset they could have made him a transscanning deco or made him G2 shiny gold (not gold plastic).

Starscream could have been his Universe or G2 deco (white).

Just reissuing them is boring especially when they seem to not be bothered to let you have Starscream's guns.

But that said I hope they sell well enough to encourage them to also re-release other stuff like Ultra Magnus, Cliffjumper and Skywarp. they also could make a lot of other things too like Pathfinder and other Gobots, Outback, G2 Beachcomber, Detritus, Nemesis Prime, even G1 colour Hungrrr.

That is even without any new moulds.

With new moulds I'd like mini-versions of other versions of Optimus Prime and also characters some additional characters from Animated, Armada, Energon and Cybertron.

Such as Sideways/Doubleface & Sideways/Noisemaze, Lockdown, Swindle, Heck make a whole legion size version of Bruticus with a Cyberverse Commander torso.

They are going to be making Movie Legions - so I hope that means that between Movies they can revisit other themes to add interest.

I'm a big G1 fan and am loving the Generations line... but these rereleases of non-popular toys is making me wish Hasbro would get it through their head that there's more to Transformers than the Movies and G1. I'd like to see some more Beast Wars and even some more Armada inspired toys. They can't keep riding on the popularity of the original series and the Movies forever.

Some people have speculated that AEC will have to have some sort of comeback as it was 'the Transformers' of a demographic that would have grown up and yet are still young enough to not have kids to be a financial drain on their potential spending power.

You could say the same about the Original RID 2001 and Beast Wars I guess too that they were so apathetic to beast wars 20th disappointed the heck out of me - but at least Takara cared enough to do "something".

I have a suspicion that the current staff at Hasbro are very much pro-G1 and Pro-Vehicles in their outlook overall.

I'm pleased we have had the few beast we have got - I'm starting to feel a slight lack of new Aircraft Transformers too - but that is slowly reversing via RID.

Some new Legion moulds sure would be nice and I hope they do squeeze some in between the flood of Movies over the next 3 years.

I also wish they approach some of the Movie Characters from previous Movies who didn't get legions too when they are making Legion toys - I expect they will do that though as the cast is similar in both AOE & TLK but something like another go at a 1970's Bumblebee a Legion Class 1960's Bumblebee and even the Kitchen Crew from ROTF & also Brains & Frenzy & Insecticon Legions would be nice.

I can't see them wanting to license XBOX 360 to make XBOX bot though or even more Wreckers. which is a shame as attack mode Topspin would have been nice to have as would non-attack mode Leadfoot and Roadbuster legions.

But that they didn't take the chance to do something with Leadfoot last time even though he's in the AOE Movie for a moment or two (so I have been lead to believe).

Considering it's an anniversary year something like all 3 Arcee sisters would be a nice thing to do too - especially if they can combine.

It's kind of strange really that there are so many Movie characters that don't have toys at all - a surprisingly long list in fact.

If they do want to do repaints then there are plenty of obvious ones like Jungle Bonecrusher or Cyberverse Commander Grindor. Not to mention using the classics Moulds there could be Stepper, red leo prime, "Archforce" Megatron.

Oh well I guess we will see what they are planning soon enough.

I still want a Legion class Sideways sometime though.

The original release of this mold as Starscream did not have the guns. They were only made available when it was repainted into Thundercracker. The later repaint into Skywarp was also missing the guns. The mold itself has built in null-rays.

It appears however that this release does have the extra guns.

The molds themselves are pretty good. But the newer legends Prime, and Seeker Molds are much better. So not sure why these are getting re-released.

Also that Prime is very very small.
