    Discussing it here since this is where the GameStop Voy SS BB OP Reissue announcement redirects, I take it the back-in-stock of MP-44S up on Pulse is this week's Optimus reissue?

    As long as Hasbro is releasing new figures of Animated characters, do you think there's a chance they'll paint and sell those old Hot Shot and Marauder Megatron molds we saw years ago? It would save them having to design new figures from scratch. :)

    I doubt so. Unless they have the molds already made (and after fifteen years, the molds may have been destroyed), it would not be worth the risk of wholly producing and releasing two figures wildly out of style with all current sublines just to expand fifteen year old collections.
    Functionally speaking, the CAD and rapid prototypes of figures like those are the cheap parts. The expensive part is creating multiple giant metal block molds - think $100k for the steel injection molds.

    I wonder when Hasbro will also release Slipstream retooled from Windblade?
