    Wow. That's no upgrade set.

    There isn't a single damn piece from the RTS Optimus mold on that thing. It's BASED on it, but everything there is new.

    They are going to milk the battle tanker until the mold self destructs. Or till our wallet is dry.

    So uh, how many iterations of this trailer mold are there going to be? Looks like they just entirely ditched the Hasbro mold now and are making their own base figure.

    Nova Prime? Seems like the backpack isn't attached in the back shot and goes with the whole angle vibe. Kinda looks bad in vehicle mode from the back. "Cybertronion" doesn't save this one from all the crap sticking out of it.

    VERY interesting... it's a completely new sculpt that shares engineering with RTS G2 Prime.

    Even more interesting - looking at Don's concept art for Nova Prime, it's clearly the same altmode (there's only a few small differences, but otherwise it's recognizably the same vehicle) but the robot mode is different.

    EDIT: Found a pic of it online - it's clearly Nova Prime's altmode, down to the armored up mode chest being on the back of the trailer.

    That is... An odd way to do nova prime

    But I'm certainly looking forward to more!

    It's weird that they even started with their battle tanker and copied engineering from RTS Prime, the end result is almost entirely new parts. They could of just realized Don's design verbatim, it was already designed with a toy in mind.

    Never been a fan of the Battle Tankor Prime aesthetic, so my interest is peaked because it's Nova Prime and MakeToys, but I wanna see the front of the figure before I decide I'm all in.

    The pic of the robot mode definitely has 'armor' hands on over the usual hands, so looks like there is going to be 2 robot forms?

    If the price is right, I'm all in.

    However since the base figure seems to be a brand new figure, i have a feeling the price is gonna be a bit scary.

    At first glance I thought this was a slight different battle tanker set for the TFCC Scourge, but yeah, that looks like they're making their own enhanced edition of RTS prime.

    I have to say, I'm looking forward to seeing more of this one.

    Maybe they're taking a cue from his IDW history: cab turns into a white Nova Prime, armour mode is black Nemesis Prime?

    I don't remember that in the comics (though, I haven;t read them all). The robot is definitely white with black aromor parts over it (at least in this prototype shot). As long as it looks differently enough from the Battle Tankor Prime mold, I'm in then!

    NEW INFO


    Check it out, Google translated the extra info from their site:

    "Will be limited sale at our online shop under construction.
    I am planning a late time in June was released, but the details will be announced at a later date."

    --> Buy direct from Maketoys!!! June!!! That's some turn-around!!
