    Maybe an MP Astrotrain in the works? I don't see the point in buying these when you can get the same thing MISB on eBay for cheaper.

    My God Ginrai has some paint wear on his cab, and a broken ratchet in his cab's hips, so I got excited for this until I saw the price.

    Good call. That would be ANOTHER way to re-paint MP10.

    Also: on the "mp astrotrain?" rumor... all the other recent re-issues have been turned into MPs shortly aftarward: hot rod, prime, soundwave, sideswipe, etc. So maybe?

    I know for awhile prices on Ebay were pretty stupid for both the Takara and Hasbro reissue (like $200 +) but now they seem to have leveled off to about $100 - $120.

    I hope Prime and Magnus get long smoke stacks. And I'd like to see Astrotrain in grey opposed to the white. Then I'd buy Astrotrain for sure!

    yeah, had it been a cartoon accurate color scheme on Astro train I would have bought him for my boy, but my original G1 version is still in great condition so that will be the one he gets

    I wish Optimus wasn't so expensive. Still, better than ebay's prices. I've never owned Powermaster Ops and would love this.

    I just bought a junker Magnus like a month ago that I cleaned up. I don't need the reissue now but that would've been awesome back then.

    $115 is too much. I bought Japanese reissue new for $50 a few years ago.

    Same here, was hoping to snag one below $100. It's not really any better than eBaythough, a bunch of auctions went for about the same price or lower recently. If any, I say they did their research :lol

    YES! POWER MASTER OPTIMUS!
    NO! THAT PRICE!

    I can't justify it. Damn. Hopefully Robotkingdom will have them for more reasonable prices.
