    I never found the original SS-38 in stores so I might have to get this.

    So is it a two pack of G1 Optimus and SS Optimus in more G1 colors, or are the charging $100 just for a redeco of a voyager?

    I am interested in this for the redeco'd Takara SS38 version! It looks like lighter reds and blues, some extra detail on the abs, tampo'd autobot symbols on his shoulders, but unfortunately light grey plastic on areas like the thighs where it was done better in the Studio Series version and he still has black fists--- although the top of his hands are blue? I guess maybe that's a callback to the original G1 boxart poster. It's also cool how they made a G1 boxart for SS38. I wonder if they will make any changes to his floppy leg panels?

    10800 yen for both figures though... pretty steep. Completely awesome though.

    Just seeing how popular SS38 is already, if Hastak has any brains, we should be seeing a Blitzscream, Soundwave, Shockwave, and Wheeljack soon.

    And no, I'm not waiting the 5+ years later for the next movie. I want these guys NOW.

    It'll at the very least allow you to recreate the scene from the BB movie :) 

    If it was, I missed it :p

    fuck, takara totally jacked my idea. i was hoping for the hasbro reissue to go on sale so i could put my extra bb prime in the packaging and have a g1 prime to mess around with.

    the new deco on bb prime is pretty nice, but man he needs blue hands.

    Maybe if he can at least hold two cars inside I’d be happy. If it could fold out and then have four cars like the original it’d be great.
