    Nope, but there hasn't been much talk about Universe 2.0's return anyways. All we know, atm, is that they want to make new figures for Rhinox and Soundwave, and that the line will at the very least continue on at the Deluxe size class. We might get some new info at SDCC, but it most likely won't be much, other than maybe some early design sketches, and some more "we want to update these characters" type of comments. Nothing really major will be seen/talked about till next years Botcon.

    A reissue of Cybertron Primus would be interesting, but I'm not sure if I would buy him. I've heard good things about the mold, but something about it bothers me. Would be cool to get a reissue of him, and then a repaint/retool of him as Unicron. Wouldn't require too many physical alterations to make it work ,imo.

    I doubt it. It didn't sell well over here. I saw a bunch of them at ROSS for like $20 a few months back.

    imagine a KO oversized supreme toy.



    so lets see, when scouts get ko'd they become voyager sized.

    its about three times bigger.

    so take primus and imagine him three times bigger......

    If they re-release him they'll probably do a repaint. But, then again, they didn't with Unicron.

    I hope we do. But considering how badly Unicron shelf warms, I doubt we'll see Primus again.

    ROSS, as in the clothing store sells toys? Damn, I'd totally get a couple for $20! I wonder if they're still there.

    If a Reissue is in the talk/making, PLEASE let that be a BLACK one because my Black Unicron needs to BLACK him OUT! :D

    Here's something for ya to stare at:[​IMG]

    I thought i had a bot-to-bot shot, but i don't.

    Before K*B went belly-up, you could get Primus dirt cheap ($30 range.)

    i don't really want to see him reissued so soon, he'd take away resources that could give us more smaller class sized toys.

    IMO, he is worth as much as $50 from the Scalpers out there, just in no rush to see him clog shelves like my arteries again.

    I remember the time last year when I got a mint/sealed Primus for $20 shipped off Buy.com. It was one of the better deals I came across as a collector.

    This sentence seems contradictory. EVERYONE would love to see new figures but there's a greater chance of seeing a primus reissue/repaint then a bunch of new, not yet announced figures at this point. There's no new R&D cost to Hasbro so they could churn one out for cheap. Heck, they could shove a Primus reissue/repaint into the ROTF line. It'll look cheap compared to the $100 devestator and bumblebee.

    Sure, a good chunk of the reissue unicron shelfwarmed but since it was a straight up repaint hasbro probably still made money on it. If/when Universe 3.0 continues Hasbro will probably want a supreme class bot in there to round out the list so we'll should see Primus then. Here's hoping it a repaint.
