    BB Megatron has charged for me, eager for this one and hopefully will be my last Megatron for while.

    On the other hand I'll have picked up 3 Starscreams in less than a month (Reactivated, Gamer, Cybertron).

    I don't want to think about how many Primes will be purchased this year.

    I guess that decides it for me. ML Prime won't fit in this month's budget, so he's a cancel for me.

    I want to want ML Prime, but something just isn't clicking with him for me. I've been holding out of canceling because I feel like I should like him, but budget makes the decision easier.

    Lunar Prime on the other hand, I'm thrilled is coming early!

    I'm resisting Primes. I think the only one I am going to buy is the 86 Commander as long as it's totally new and different from the ER one.
    Same feeling here. I mean sure, it's cool that G1 prime can move now, but do I really want it? I don't have any G1 figures on display anymore other than boxed and I would def want to open this guy.

    I'm the same way with it. It's just... it doesn't do anything for me. I have three reissues of G1 Optimus and numerous CHUG versions of him. If this had been made earlier, then I maybe would've bit. But now... I have no real nostalgia/want/need for it.

    I never really got into the idea of ML Prime. I get the idea and why it was done due to the 40th anniversary but also I think it loses the charm of the original

    I think it is just what you want out of the figure and how many G1 toys you already have. For me, I didn't want to get sucked down the rabbit hole of too many of these missing links. But the concept is not new at all, in fact it's been around for a while, and I used it in the collection where there was what I considered a missing link. The throught of doing this for all figures is already making my pocket book have shivers.

    As I kid, I remember after watching the G1 toon and even looking at the box art, I was very disappointed Prime couldn't do none of them poses. Just a static robot with moving arms. This goes for all G1 toys. I felt lied to! So I'm glad they're doing this. So I'm in the "Bring it on bitches" camp.

    Articulated ankles and shit starting from WFC is what got me back into collecting.

    Edit: And I only have a few G1 bots from my kidhood. So it's not like I'm rebuying shit.

    Yup, word is a lot of Optimus reissues are incoming! That's the good news. Bad news, no MPG-09 preorder yet on Pulse. :(

    I’d imagine this is similar to them reissuing the takara selects dinobots right before announcing the ss86 grimlock.

    Hopefully we see ss86 optimus soon

    WTF!? If legacy United Optimus has Blue legs and yellow eyes in All in… because I’m a fool.

    if it’s just a pack refresher I’m just not seeing this as a good thing…
    Except if they are releasing him again SS86 is definitely a new mold…

    Depending on where you go, you can see him all colors: yellow eyes, blue legs/trailer doodad, gray hands again, purple horseshoes, green clovers…

    I'll be placing an MPG Ginrai backup preorder on Pulse, but otherwise my Optimus Prime needs are met until the SS86 reveal!
