    Why did they have to qualify it with "for now"? What they are doing seems similar to a crowdfunding? Minimum preorder, otherwise no party.

    Maybe as you have pointed out before, they learn from the mistake of reissuing Spartan when the demand is not enough and a lot of stock left. They want to make sure they can at least sell certain number of copies before reissuing.

    Well they just showed off Rodimus in that line. Maybe Megatron is next!

    I already have a MEgatron, but I am strongly considering getting a 2nd so I can have one in Pre-Earth mode all the time and one in Lost Light Mode all the time.

    Strange that they're re-releasing him knowing that they got the alt-mode wrong.
    Why not retool him so he could turn into his proper form? Doesn't seem like it would be a huge undertaking. Looking at the Milne artwork you can see how 90% of him folds up into the tank.

    They would literally have to change the entire engineering to fit the comic alt mode. I don’t know what reality you live in where remolding doesn’t cost more than just re-releasing a perfectly good figure.

    Yeah they’d have to make an entirely new figure. Kinda sad once you see his actual altmode and realize he just lays on his stomach with his arms rotated and chest flipped out.

    How did no one figure that out?

    Was going to get this but then The model kit is so spot on I am getting that instead. Was never going to transform him anyway.

    I wound up selling my Megatron because it was so contrary to the actual comic character.

    Yeah, it's seems, that with a few clever parts changes, it could transform into a reasonable tank, but if they did that it's be an all new toy. A rework. Kinda Like they did with most of their molds. I'd love a rework.

    I missed out on the original release and prices were stupid high when i decided i wanted him after recently becoming a fan of mtmte and lost light.

    I'm happy to have this on preorder for msrp. if they put out a new mold/rework i'd buy that as well. :)

    I emailed PSX about whether the R-28 Tyrantron reissue would come with the PSX exclusives (Head/Sword/Mace) of the original release.

    “Unfortunately it won’t.”

    Since PSX doesn’t have any incentives, where is the best place to order? (Price/Shipping/Other?)

    Anyone selling the PSX exclusives?
