    Speaking as someone who remains G1 Optimus Prime-less and wants to rectify that, I'd love for HasTak to reissue this thing.

    That PINKIMUS PRIME!!!

    I really don't like what Hasbro did on the coloring.
    Would there be a problem if they applied a shade of red used on MP-10's?
    And the smokestacks gone short?
    And they were charging a hefty price just because there's 25th Anniversary labeled on the box.

    As someone has said, whether it's 30th, 31st, 100th, why are they more significant than others?

    Let's look at it a different way. Every year is really a celebration of the first. Does that mean we get OP and the entire cast of the first season every year?

    TT is releasing another OP because they can and the fans will pay for it. It's simple.

    Because generally decades and half decades are considered more siginificantly in most cultures??? It’s why you put emphasis on someone’s 20th, 30th, 50th, etc, birthday. It’s why when transformers turned 30 there was an entire line dedicated to it, and it’s why when the 30th anniversary of the movie in the US happened, we got a super high quality blueray release.

    On top of that, while I won’t even pretend to know anything about Japanese culture, these decade and half decade milestones seem to get an especially large amount of attention there.

    Not sure I see the correlation between human birthdays and Transformers. Why does one have to follow another? The numbers I have seen are 18, 21, 40, and 50. And those somewhat makes sense because 18, and 21 oftentimes mark the transition to adulthood. Not sure about 40, and 50. Mid life crisis? Retirement?

    Also "most" needs to be qualified. 99.99% of the people in Asia cares not one bit about "World Series" and "Superbowl". Not one bit, and they make up 60% of the world's population. I bring that example up because people in America likes to use words such as "World championship" when most of the world don't care about them. Heck, most of Europe and Africa don't care about MLB and NFL either.

    I fail to see the correlation between toy robots and sports, but fine dude, you want to continue wallowing in a pit of sorrow and being a general nuisance on the boards because a hypothetical toy that will definitely come out at some point isn’t out RIGHT NOW, then by all means, live your life the way you want to.

    I know only of 16, 18, 30 and then no one likes to celebrate the birthday anymore or at least doesn't tell how old one got :lol 

    That's what I also find funny. Don't they play the World Series alone and only in America? :D

    I always said I loved MP 10 the best and I felt no need for a v3.

    But I'm realistic. I know there's no way I'm not buying this.

    Yup. That's about my sentiment as well! I have always been a huge prime fan, so yea... getting this!
    I was hoping to see at least a prototype since they teased the image of the chest like that. May have to wait until June for the Tokyo Toy show though. I'd be surprised if they didn't show it there.

    Maybe I'm a masochist, but I'd like them to keep teasing the line-art for a couple more months. At the end of March, give us a sneak-peek of his tyre-free legs. End of April, finally reveal his amazing head sculpt.

    I don't see why you have to make personal attacks. That probably means I've won the argument. You are now blocked and I will continue to make my statements.

    The true World Sport Events are the World Cup and the Olympics. The rest are regional.

    I'm more excited about this than I thought I would be. I'm already planning on getting MP-1. It would be nice to have a Prime that can fully recreate his reverse dunk poses. MP-10 doesn't have enough articulation to do it well. Plus a V3 would give me an excuse to get snickered at by trophy wives for taking the toys to the park for a photo session.

    Edit: Put me on the list for having a basketball as one of Prime's accessories.
