    I am so happy that I pre-orderd . I think I am gonna keep them MISB. It is very tempting to open them up.
    Can't wait!

    Of course! Japan's tow laws aren't retarded like the ones in North America. As such, every Prime/Magnus reissue thus far has long smokestacks.

    I was so hoping he would have the head remold of the I-pod dock white prime. Disappointing.

    I also preordered, all but Soundwave. The best I can hope for is MIB with applied stickers. :p

    I'm preordering Convoy and Starscream later. Convoy's a deffinate buy but I would rather have the Hasbro reissues of either Skywarp or Thundercracker.

    I like the longer Missles and think their colours look better than SS's.

    those pictures don't necessarily reflect the final product. It has been said he would get the iPod Convoy head, and that Megatron would have "special chrome".
    Personally, I'm betting for the price we're getting, the chrome might be replaced with silver paint, maybe on all of them.
    I wonder if we could get anything else, like Music Label Soundwave's head on Soundwave. =)

    I am going to have to order Megatron. I still don't have a G1 one and this release looks good. All I have is the ws one and that is a poor substitute.

    I'm holding off on ordering until I see the final products. No Prime for me if he has that goofy head.

    Why would it not? It's Japanese, not American.
