    YAY! The 401'st reissue of G1 prime...

    Looks just like every other one.

    Woo Hoo. Check out the autobot symbols on the arm, looks like it may be tampo stamped.

    Well I've missed out on the 400 other reissues so I'll probably pick this one up.

    I just hope there's no remolding like it was rumored.

    I don't know. The head that they are using on the music label Convoy is pretty nice.

    Whoa!!! This morning I was thinking about starting a thread asking when we were going to see some pics of the Encore series. With the release coming up so soon I figured it was about time some pics showed up.

    If you look at the next page in that thread, there are bot mode pics. Looks pretty standard fare.

    I like that the Autobot symbol is molded in and painted on the shoulder rather than a sticker. Silver Roller FTW!

    Holy crap.

    I'm a sucker for tampo-stamped logos and chrome full-length smokestacks.

    Any price point?

    -edit-
    Damn -- Yellow eyes. I think I'll have to pass and paint the Roller on my New Year's Prime silver... maybe put a little red led on it.

    Glad I preordered these - now I've seen Prime and Soundwave! I'll be keeping them in the box but they'll be great displays.

    I also agree that too many of these same toys are being released. I understand the limited molds and whatnot but to re-release 1000 different Primes and Starscreams seems a bit repetitious to me. Even if they are trying to target collectors.

    Oh well, I shouldn't complain. These are nice and if they weren't coming out with anything I guess I'd be bitching too. It's a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" kinda situation.

    How much are these again? I'm pretty damned tempted to have a G1 Prime.

    Oh sweet. The Autobot symbol is pressed on like the MP01/04.

    Hmm, if I can find one for a decent price, I'd love to get one. I've never owned a G1 Prime...*cue violin*

    *sigh* Another one for the ever-expanding Christmas list, I suppose.
