    Interesting. This must be the second US release of the mold. I like the axe gun...

    That's actually pretty decent, so that's three choices for this mould now and each one has a completely different look and a completely different weapon. :lol

    This looks like the truck is painted to appear as if it is on "re-entry" into Earth's atmosphere. The translucent orange truck parts and flames from the Mech-Tech weapon reinforce this look in vehicle mode.

    So I take it with this remold of Prime, and deluxe Bumblebee, our bots are going into space with all that extra gear and then falling back to earth in car mode.

    And what's this, the third form of this toy? I didn't think we would see this many variations so quickly. I will be wise and wait out the DOTM line, seeing everything available first before I spend any money.

    Okay, that's going to be the version I'll get. That colorscheme and especially that axe are way too cool to pass up.

    Looks pretty cool. Don't think I'll get him, but I'm not ruling him completely out for now. The axe is nice, and very WFC-esque. Though I like the first use of this mold's Mechtech weapon better, tbh.

    Battle Axe Blaster > Battle Blades.

    pretty sure this is the Takara version of the "space" truck optimus. We already got the "space" in the US so I hope we get the regular truck voyager here too.

    Hot damn, that looks nice.

    Was originally going to pass on this mold, but that is one cool axe.

    Wasn't there a list leaked describing a lot of the stuff Takara later revealed? But yeah, the figures themselves don't really get shown beforehand.

    Here's hoping this is a US release by Hasbro rather than Takara. Seeing how it's not described in the aforementioned list does give a little hope.
