If it transforms, then that seems incredibly unlikely. Unless there's something very unique about it that somehow won't be deemed as "competing" with Hasbro's own product.
Maybe a licenced 3P figure like 3A or Prime 1 studios, i don't think it'll transform.
There's all sorts of hinges in his torso and legs, so it obviously has some sort of transformation gimmick.
Posted by the same account who made that post of TFEVO, INTERESTING...
If this is official then this would be under the MPM-line, no?
You thinking that after Hot Rod they’re making this Prime then?
Aren't there enough AOE/TLK Primes yet?
Hahaha! Remember when we'd look at "garage kits" and say "no good?" My my how the tables have turned! Now we put more faith in the 3P stuff than in Hasbro's.
Jeez, not that long ago, it seemed like we'd never get a good AOE Optimus. Now we have three versions?? So many options!
This bot mode looks on par with UT's, although with a more accurately angled collar. And the kibbly hip panels and sides of the torso definitely suggest that it transforms (although again, I'll believe it when I see it).
Now I guess I'll have to wait to see more of Challenger and this new figure before deciding which one to go with... what a tough life TF fans have at the moment!
Oh boy, the people that have a problem with Challenger’s ‘boobs’ are going to have a field day with this one... :/
It won't be licenced from hasbro, so the mistery continues on.
I won't make fun of him for having boobs, I'm sure he gets enough flak already for the inverted nipples.
I can see little hinges around his neck, chest, arms and legs, so, there's a possibility, as i've said before, from what i read, there is no info. whatsoever in this, people are just guessing, they even said if this was UT's, but no.
If it transforms then no way its licensed by Hasbro as they only license non-transforming toys to other companies
EDIT: Whats that on the bottom left...Are these gas tanks forming a gun?
I noticed that as well.
I’m interested! Any transforming knight Prime will have me very interested, although I’ll automaticallygive preference to any one that does the knight arm design, which he’s had for way way longer and is more iconic at this point.
I’ll reserve more excitement for further info (is it hasbro or 3P? Does it transform? When will it release? How big is it? Etc).
You know, saying this one is endorsed by Hasbro is doing it the least favors. If it is transformable, it looks the most unappealing out of all 3 (including this one) that will be made available down the line. Both El Cid and UT Challenger looks miles better
Besides the hip armor, I feel like this guy looks better than both the others versions. And if its Hasbro, it will almost certainly be a bit lower priced which is good for a lot of people.
For one thing, the headsculpt is fantastic. Miles better than either of the versions. That's the main detail giving this credibility as an official Hasbro figure imo. Hasbro has perfected the movie style face on its figures better than almost any 3rd party. There are talks of a 3rd yet unknown leader in the Studio Series line right?
Won't be licenced from hasbro.
