    Here's hoping either the Takara reissue or e-hobby version looks something like this, yeah? Would probably be the only way I'd pick it up...

    Someone did a digibash of him a few months maybe even a year back that was just killer!
    I would love a less juvenile color scheme of this guy.

    Less juvenile meaning what, exactly?

    My guess would be that he meant less juvenile than having Optimus Prime pasted on his trailer and chest.

    I would love the reissue to be in G1 colors. It would be the only way I will buy it, since my current Laser Prime is in good enough condition to not need replacing. And that kitbash is a perfect example of how I think it should look.

    yes, it would be great to see a version that did not have Optimus Prime written somewhere for product ID. Because Prime has the tendency to forget his name. He needs to look at the side of his trailer anf his chest from time to time in order to remeber it.

    :D

    I always thought it was so his enemies knew his name before he beat them into submission.

    Or for his night job at [insert retail establishment here]... "Hi, I'm (points to name on chest) how may I help you?"

    I think it's pretty likely that the reissure will be something like this. They've just crossed the 'accurate colours' barrier with Galvatron, G2 Laser Prime is cheap on ebay, and, hell, nobody liked those colours in the first place.

    I hope they keep the sticker on the trailer, though. Optimus Prime burning down a forest? Awesome.

    I want the G2 labels, color scheme and original Japanese box. I love the original stuff and think that a repaint of it makes him look like his just wearing a red long sleeve shirt. However, Binaltech hands? I'll allow it! :D

    Eh, just eh. I'm going to stand by my opinion that long-nosed trucks are Black Convoy/Scourge's realm.
