    Weird that they're bringing these back when the Kingdom line exists.

    Yep, those are staying on their package (maybe buy two of each to play with one).

    Kingdom is better for the most part but the originals still have that certain charm about them (and many more gimmicks and accessories).

    I do hope mold degradation hasn't set in.

    Holy shit, so they aren't Transmetals. And Rattrap, that mould that was supposedly lost. And that means Primal and Megatron are being sold for basically their original MSRP adjusted for inflation. And they're in the original packaging.

    None of this makes sense. But I am so grateful for it. I'm for sure buying one of each to keep in package, maybe even two. Definitely two of Cheetor, as he was my first TF toy ever and I still have my original (albeit a bit worse for wear) and I'll have to put them next to each other.

    Mould degradation usually comes from excessive use, not just age.

    Right, so these are just as overpriced as the G1 reissues.
    Optimus Primal: No major changes. but the blue is lighter or metallic depending on the place.
    Megatron: Biggest change, much brighter purple, No paint on helmet and the beige on the stomach seems lighter.
    Cheetor: Least change, just the eyes aren't metallic.
    Rattrap: Slightly different shade of fur, black beast mode eyes and much paler pink feet.

    Then shouldn't it be weird that the G1 reissues exist? Since we have Siege, Earthrise, and Kingdom.

    The mastermolds stay pristine in storage? I hope so and even pray harder that fans will support these at full retail and not wait for drop bottom get rid of them sale.

    Oh man, I do need to get that Megatron at least because mine is in terrible shape. I might just get them all, even though I really don't have much space for boxes....

    I really hope that Transmetals are reissued, because we NEED that Megatron at some point in a form that won't break or cost an arm or a leg.
