I just opened the Heroes of Cybertron reissues that I picked up at Hot Topic yesterday, and noticed something that I think should be brought to the attention of collectors. These five HOC figures: Optimus Prime Megatron Soundwave Rodimus Prime Ultra Magnus These were recently reissued as exclusive figures to the store chain "Hot Topic". However, these "reissues" have been altered from their original release. Some alterations that I've noticed include: Different, or missing Paint Apps. Paint is different shade (lighter or darker) from original release Figures are NOT molded in either red, or blue transparent plastic, but instead are molded in the most dominant color of that part of the body (hand may be black plastic, body may be blue plastic, etc...) NO light piping (eyes, etc) I don't think this is anything too major, as these reissues are wonderful display pieces, however, I think the collectors should be aware should they attempt to buy original release, so they don't end up with reissues.
