    It's possible that instead of doing a straight up re-issue, they did a repaint instead.

    The mystery of this new release continues. No cab stripe:

    I think the question for me is the trailer. I got the Magnus repaint after last year's cab only E version sold out, and NA Nemesis. So while it wouldn't be a priority, while I get that it is an odd combination of toy and toon, I would be up for another cab only release in Prime colours.

    That and my MS Megatron is the 2023 version with the toon grey paint, but toy red inner legs. So this guy might match that other odd duck, which is a quality?

    So it is a Toon release, NOT fully painted, but with Silver shorts instead of White, and with painted windows vs clear windows, right, and likely without the expressive hands, right?

    I feel sad i missed out on MS-B46E which had the Toon look with clear windows at retail price. Hopefully another repaint will follow the current one planned.

    I will buy another V2 if it's full toon, but painted like Ironhide and recent Trailblazer. Another deco I'd like is straight toy, also painted like the bots mentioned before.

    to me that's not "toon", but yet another random "whatever" release MS likes to pump out. why would "toon" have glittery metallic blue windshields and silver pants, shouldn't they be flat blue and white/grey instead? there's just no making sense of what MS does.

    I'd let my 46E go if MS would just put out a fully painted toon EX or a fully painted metallic X+. I'm assuming an EX or X+ would have the much better quality paint like the recent Ironhide and Trailbreaker. I'll be honest, the 46E painted chest was a bit of a disappointment for me with how sloppy the paint was and how easily it chipped and flaked. Also have 46W and it suffers from the same problem.

    The math looks complicated but there's some redundancies that help us to solve it.

    1 - 46E = EX
    Or
    1 - 46E = X+
    Since no value is given after the plus, we must treat it as simply X. That also means that

    EX = X

    Divide both sides by X and

    E=1

    So now we plug that into the original equations and we get

    1 - 46(1) = X
    X= -45

    X > B44 + B09

    Factor out the B and you get

    X > B(44+9)
    X > B53

    We know that X = -45 so

    -45 > B53
    B < -0.849

    All these negative numbers suggest that LonelySoldierBoy doesn't think too highly of Ironhide and Trailbreaker but isn't quite sure just how negatively he thinks of them, though he seems to positively hate Optimus.

    I might get one dependent on price, although the unpainted arm triangles are kinda disappointing (although could be replaced with another version's arms if the reds are the same). I'm assuming that based on the photos he's just comes with the gun and axe.

    They probably are, without eyebrows which had a reissue ver 2023. I really like these colors, eyes shape, especially the window color. Silver pants is wrong choice ( I can live with that, or maybe I'll paint it white ) i'll probably take this ver. I gave up on the reissue ver 2023, cuz I couldn't get over his eyebrows. This ver does not have a trailer, but that doesn't worry me now cuz I'm waiting for the NA OP reissue.
