    From the Rodimus Prime Rebuild Facebook Page, he is quoted saying:
    "Wait for official reissue."

    So this is a potential Rumor for now. Anyone else hear this? No, not trying to ruffle feathers. I'm wondering this as well. I don't know whether to put this in here or third party. But I'm focusing on the official Masterpiece. Mods, sorry if I made any posting mistakes or mishaps in advance.

    It was already discussed and I believe confirmed by Amazon Japan , or Takara themselves ...

    I don't recall this, and I'm usually on top of these things.

    I'd be very interested in a reissue of Rodimus Prime that didn't have so many breakage problems!

    I’m taking the Rebuild post with a grain of salt. Different source so I’m ok that I posted this.

    Isn't this the Chinese reissue that was being discussed last week? So probably a Hasbro Asia thing, not Takara.

    I didn’t mean it was about a rebuild , just a reissue.

    Missed out on the first release, and I have no regrets after hearing the horror stories.

    Ok. This should add a little more leverage. I messaged the guy directly. Hoping for a new reissue soon!

    Yeah, but if it isn't Takara reissuing it then that's a sign that the mold is dead to them. As it should be.

    Could go either way. I try to stay positive. So far it’s worked out in my life being positive :)

    If it's not absurdly expensive, I'll probably pick one up. I have the TRU version of the mold (and, well, every other Rodimus figure). I can convince myself the QC and engineering are a bit better than round one (which scared me off).
