    So I found this on Tfnd's Facebook

    TFND - Transformers Never Die Public Group | Facebook

    At a special event this weekend there was something new spotted on top of Siege Shockwave and Ultra magnus's boxes.

    I guess This G1 Optimus Prime Reissue will be Released perhaps along the winner of the fan vote poll from a few days ago.

    Yeah I just saw this too, I’d be interested in this if it was priced reasonably. I’d love to have this sitting on my shelf at work!

    My bet is that this will be priced at the same price that hot rod is priced

    Out of curiosity (for those of us that don’t currently have any G1 Optimus Primes) - what is the best option to get a trailer for this bad boy ahead of the vintage re-release?

    This is somewhat amusing. Not sure if I like the idea of a G1 Prime without his trailer though. But interesting that it looks to have the long smokestacks.

    I have a Pristine G1 trailer with a beat up cab/Prime so this is a perfect buy for me!

    Good God I'm so confused. Why release a G1 reissue without the trailer? Is it even a reissue if the original parts are not included?

    I'll buy it but I will not be totally satisfied. I'm happier now than ever that I purchased a G1 KO reissue during Walmart's cancellation fiasco.

    Also, the flap corners on this release are rounded. The previous Walmart releases had square flap corners. The plot thickens...

    I would love to get this as a present or in clearance like Hot Rod is right now. If I were to get one, It would probably be my MiB figure.

    Shouldn’t be too hard to find on the boards or eBay, but The price probably just went up a couple bucks. I think I got one for $10-$15 with a few other parts I needed about a year ago.

    This is fine with me. Have a few Optimi, and only the one in truck mode has his trailer on display. Though I have seen some damn cool displays with all the variants, if it is in bit mode, it is one of the more useless accessories for me.
