    If it's Starscresm's price, I'm so in. This is so freaking cool. And extatic for Astrotrain. Just hope the QC will be good on these.

    Nice! Very happy to see these Walmart reissues continue. Prime looks a bit weird without the trailer, but I can understand why they would do it.

    It seems stupid without the trailer considering they were willing to sell Devastator in the box set. Glad to see what is apparently full smokestacks - there are ways around these things as I've brought up (and we've even seen) countless times.

    Yeah, I agree. This is definitely the weirdest of the new batch of Hasbro reissues so far. If it had been redecoed in live-action movie colors, I might have been interested. (PS: Hasbro,if you're listening,please reissue Emegency Green Ratchet. I know you still have the mold.)

    Definitely an interesting variant if nothing else.

    I have a theory on the trailer but you'll have to wait for Ollies.

    Nice! I'll buy one for the kids. No worries of the trailer being broken and left on the floor somewhere.

    I wonder if it has the original head or the music label head. I am going to assume original, since I think the music label head was on a different set of tooling.

    I can dig it. I think the lack of a trailer is interesting but I have like 2 or 3 other G1 primes so this guy is a nice to have but not a must have.

    A Prime without a trailer, but with correctly sized smokestacks? This will easily replace my Hasbro reissue OP.

    Why no trailer? Cool but it feels incomplete.

    I don't have a g1 prime, and always skipped the reissue because of shortstacks. This interests me. No trailer is fine, keeps costs down and it would just go aside anyway.

    I have a few reissue primes.  Some with the puffy parts. None with long stacks.  I\'m down!
