Looks like a bunch of previously announced Hasbro stuff and Premium Finish Bumblebee Movie Optimus and Siege Megatron.
It seems that we will get the SS-38 with the Movies camouflage instead of the previously guessed SS-01 as the PF SS-02?
The roll call is:
MPM Bee Optimus
Netflix Leader Megatron
SS86 Slag & Daniel
Beast Wars Reissue Optimus Primal
Beast Wars Reissue Megatron
Beast Wars Reissue Cheetor
Beast Wars Reissue Rattrap
It’ll be interesting to see if the Beast Wars reissues come in Japanese-style packaging or not.
...but mpm prime has already been revealed, could it be a pf prime?
Is that SS-38, or MPM Optimus?
I know a new SS-38 is coming in the repaint line, but can’t tell by the image.
SS-38，he will become PF SS-02
Interesting to see TT also releasing the BW reissues. Wondering if they'll be released in the same western style packaging or if they'll go with remakes of the OG Japanese boxes.
Yeah I'm surprised at that too.
I doubt they do their own thing here, otherwise they'd fix Megatron and really hurt the appeal of the Hasbro version even further.
Siege megatron is getting his new chest?
I'd assume they'll be the same, packaging and all, as Hasbro's. Though different packaging would be neat.
Yeah I reckon so too. Which would be a bit weird though, as there wouldn't be any nostalgia for Western packaging. Guess we'll find out for sure tomorrow.
Maybe there will be interest in the vintage packaging from another area? Kind of like how western collectors enjoy vintage packaging from Japan despite not growing up with it? Not sure how things like that do in Japan.

This might actually be the first time one of our vintage lines ever gets a proper release in Japan. It would be neat to see the old style Takara Beast Wars boxes return, but that's probably not how they're going to handle these.
These look so good!

exactly how far can we rotate the waist without showing off the giant hollows and floating backpack?
