    I heard a rumor a couple months back about this guy getting re-issued due to demand.
    Has anyone heard whether it is a yes or no?

    I have a friend in Japan that can't seem to find it anywhere.

    I could be wrong, but I think it is the Hong Kong release of it (or somewhere other than Japan). BBTS had a preorder for him a few weeks ago and is sold out (I think still sold out), and Robot Kingdom should still have a preorder.

    That's what the rumor stated. Apaprently ordered by Hasbro Hong Kong who are also Takara's agents in HK.

    There's a re-run of the reissue that's supposed to be out around June 30th.

    Yeah. Prime, Hound, and one other figure (can't recall who at the moment) are going through another run and are set for distribution soon.

    I read that there are some slight changes to the mold (maybe just paint apps--can't remember exactly). Has anyone seen pictures; or know what the changes are?

    I have the original Hasbro version (which I'm fine with) and was just wondering if this Takara reissue is really much of a difference.

    The Henkei is nice with the chrome, but it has a weird 2 tone orange/red color in truck mode. When I got mine, I thought it was some sort of knock off. I wonder if they fixed this in the new release.

    I have both Henkei and Classics Prime and I honestly like the Henkei better. The red is nicer and the blue is darker and the bumper and grill isn't that flat grey, it's chrome like G1 Prime is. Also, instead of the random blue on his shoulders he has two Autobot symbols.

    Isn't it great how all these re-issues are being just done and pre-orders popping up far enough apart that it kills you on shipping each time.
