    I read this somewhere that Hasbro is doing a reissue of this. Is this true? I've searched no luck...

    If true, it's the first I've heard of it. Can you share where you read that?

    Certainly not out of the question, considering the mold is in production right now for the Encore reissue series in Japan.

    Don't suppose you're confusing a reissue with the Pepsi Prime released at Botcon and SDCC? That at least does use the same cab/robot portion of the original.

    I think he's referring to a while back when Hasbro had that idea of releasing various Primes through the years. I believe that idea got scrapped. Also, this thread belongs in TFGD as its not really news.

    My bet is on him having confused Hasbro with Takara (who are reissuing Optimus, Megatron, Soundwave and Starscream currently).

    Agreed, going to close it down.

    Teepo112, feel free to start a new thread if you can find some source material confirming the rumor. Otherwise, we don't really have anything to substantiate it.

    Thanks!
