    When I pulled my BW stuff out of storage I was relieved to find all of the GPS crew still intact. But now they're in whatever mode they were packed in and I am paranoid about the day I have to pack them up to move.

    I had Telemocha Dinobot once upon a time, which I presume was one of the last uses of the mold, and it felt pretty solid. So perhaps there are versions of the tooling that haven't degraded quite so much?

    And in lieu of an actual new Terrorsaur, I would love to get the original toy in more accurate colors. I was annoyed when they did it with Megatron, but would welcome it with Terrorsaur.

    You know, it's a shame these reissues aren't updating the colors at all. It basically means only Rattrap, Inferno, and Scorponok are worth getting for me. Everything else has a previous release that has a far better color scheme.

    At the very least, it's a shame they won't at least use the Japanese colors for Terrorsaur.

    But they are, just not dramatically. I think it was said in the Scorponok thread, but these reissues almost seem like "colour variants" that may have existed back in the day, with the same paint details in slightly more accurate colours. Primal's darker blue head or Rattrap's black eyes, or Scorps being grey instead of black, etc.

    We got two lines that went for more show-accurate, updated decos. These seem to be more focused on replicating the aesthetics of the originals with minor tweaks.

    How do you know they won't have something similar? It was a pretty minor redeco all things considered. I expect they'll probably leave his helmet red to be more show-accurate at least.

    But then they're not really reissues?

    Then I guess they aren't reissues now since they apparently did change the colors.


    That said I don't care what they're called, I just want the best possible colors.

    No, I get it. I don't understand why you'd reissue a toy and then change something (at least not as dramatically as we've seen on some figures...Astrotrain).

    Because it gives you the mold you love but with more accurate colors.

    Is the Reissue Terrorsaur the only one we are supposedly getting? I haven't been able to keep up with everything lately!

    If so, better that than nothing. He was my favorite BW design aside from Dragon Megatron.

    I would seriously love to see a reissue of Transmetal Megatron.

    Besides the Scorpy that dropped out of nowhere, there's also Terrorsaur, Tarantulas, K9, and Cybershark apparently.

    He'll be getting a leader figure in the next year, allegedly.

    I would absolutely buy a reissue of this guy. Mine is still in one piece, but I'd love to be able to retire him to permanent storage have one I could display in bot mode without fear of him breaking in twain when I transformed him.

    Mutant Soundwave, Grimlock, Magnaboss, Torca...all good reissue candidates.

    I like the color changes on them, especially Cheetor
