    Reissue is the fixed version like Annihilator, and the upcoming KM-01X repaint exclusive.

    If your getting one only, I like Annihilator better. He comes with the sword, and can be easily displayed amongst classics figures, as he looks like a different character. Plus, his colors are more realistic, compared to Commander. And he has a cool box. :D

    depends. do you like black repaints? Do you like swords? If you like both, then go with Annihilator. Honestly, if they are approx the same price (as it appears to be), Annihilator got a better looking paint scheme, a set of tracks to display him on, an extra KMC head (for custom), and a sword.

    Yes, Commander v2 will have the fixes made with Annihilator. Which version to get is up to you - I really like the original Prime color, and even though black Primes have awesome color schemes I have never really been a fan of the character. I don't know off the top of my head if the new Commander will come with the sword that Annihilator has.

    So summary:

    KMC reissue:
    -Fixes from original mold
    -90$
    -Optimus paint scheme

    KMA:
    -Fixes from original mold
    -90$
    -Black/gold paint scheme
    -Sword
    -Tracks

    If you are talking about more plastic for the same amount, or just cooler paint scheme, or even more accessories, the choice are obvious unless you are biased towards optimus prime's colors.

    I thought the KMC prime colors came with tracks? If not then yeah get the anni, I skipped prime all together and got the anni. Love that figure. Be careful though. Buying this means you will instantly buy any other MMC HoS style fig they come out with.

    The mould, as said, will have all the fixes.

    I personally would go with the Prime paint job if I could only get one.

    Why?

    HoS Shockwave, Insecticons, and Seekers. Prime against the bunch. Or yuo can go Black and have a HoS Decepticon display. Its all preference at this point.

    I still don;t have one of this mold but if I were to order them it would be.
    1. annihilator
    2. sg
    3. original
    my reasoning is that there is enough red/blue primes already but I could use as many black / purple ones I could get to pat the ranks.

    What exactly was "fixed"? The only major issue I can think of was the elbow joints being insanely tight.

    Vangelus actually highlighted all of the changes in his Annihilator review. But it included the hip wheels, the leg sliders, the changeable fists. Thats all i can think of right now.

    The shoulders were very fragile, prone to snapping when they were moved back from robot to train mode. The ratchet swivel on the shoulder was also very tight
