    1st Edition voyager Optimus retooled with 5mm/minicon/arms micron ports! Also those G1 stripes and those Autobot shoulder symbols:
    Transformers Prime Retooled Voyager Optimus Prime - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Now normally I would say "oh, must be a 1 off", UNTIL I noticed the new weapons and the fact that they can attach to certain areas which have been retooled, which aren't on the current FE Prime. Also those stripes look rather nice.

    Kick ass! That Arms Micron(I think?) sword looks bad ass, as does that shoulder cannon. Hopefully this is a mass release and not a store exclusive in Japan.

    Sweet. I'd say there's a very good probability of the mold itself being released over in Japan and/or here in the future, either repackaged/retooled/whatever. It's just it's going to take time. That's what's fueling some of the outrage... the fact that he was supposed to be available NOW. But hey give it some months and the mold will be there in some way. If not over here then at least from Takara.

    It sure would be nice if that were released in the US.

    Thanks for pointing this out Shin. I had actually missed this. I got a hold of a Cliff and Bulk, but was concerned about finding a Prime at some point. This thing looks cool with all the extras!

    No prob man, I, like most of you, felt bummed that I missed out on FE Prime, both the US and Japanese editions. So this "new" retooled release is a glimmer of hope. If it didn't have the retooled shoulders and forearms with 5mm ports I wouldn't be as optimistic.

    I just wonder if the grey or chrome weapons will be included or if they're planned for release separately.

    Not gonna pass this as news or anything, and don't get your hopes up, but I just read on another forum that some people have actually getting some responses about this, and that the repackaging of the FE molds later in the RiD toyline is a definitive possibility.

    Take this with a grain of salt. Even if true, it's most probably a stock response.

    I'll only be totally happy if he comes with the FE's gun.

    that's IF that is an actual upcoming figure, and not just something customized to show off the new minicons they're making. 5mm ports are easy to add, needing just a drill. the chrome stripe's borders make it look like a sticker.

    I hope they're included and chrome, even though they'll stand out with the rest of the toyline. I don't mind.

    Makes sense these are relatively new molds, molds cost a ton to tool. FE Screamer and BB are repainted for the next Entertainment Pack.

    I actually dig the sword, just not the material it's made out of.

    That's what I'm worried about, I hope it is indeed, an actual upcoming figure. Those stripes pop out well and the new weapons look good.

    I don't either I dig this one a lot.

    I'm really hoping that this gets released, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I suspect some if not all FE molds will return as redecoed store exclusives, if by no other means.

    It might be a rare one like some of the Animated Optimus' are.

    Hopefully Bulkhead is repacked/retooled. So we can get another dab at him.

    We've all seen Hasbro's current mantra of getting at least 1 repaint/retool out of each mold; just look at recent Classics & most of DOTM. The FE's will see another release one way or another (possibly several).

    Until then there's an entire RID line gearing up, so let's not fret about a handful of molds that aren't clogging the shelves the instant we decide to want them.
