Generation One variant collectors take notice! In a bit of . . . interesting news to say the least, the Commemorative Series Optimus Prime is seeing a re-release. While this in itself isn’t odd news in light of some of the other re-releases we’ve been seeing, the nature of this one is a bit more interesting. From our Cybertron.CA forums, member Bruticus (G1_Bruticus here) reports that this reissue is in the Commemorative packaging . . . but it’s the 25th anniversary Optimus Prime figure! The notable differences of the figures are the shades of reds, blues, and grays used for the toy parts. The Autobot symbols appear to be tampo-stamped onto the figure as well (whereas the Commemorative issue has a label sheet).
