    I stumbled upon this while searching for the old Trendmasters Dexter's Laboratory toys.

    Anyways, there it is under "portfolio", in the middle right section of the gallery.

    The designer does a lot of work for Fast Food, Candy, and Cereal premiums, so it might be something of that sort.

    The copyright is marked 2009, so it may have been for ROTF. It seems like a lot of the designer's work made it into production, so I'm wondering if this ever did or ever will (I've always admired the simplicity of fast food toys).

    Basically you open the head of Optimus Prime up, and you pull out a super-deformed version of his body. There also appears to be a "translucent" red section on his forehead, possibly for some light-up gimmick. Given the super-deformed proportions of the toy, it makes me think this might have been for Burger King's ROTF toys because they have recently done super-deformed toys of heroes from Marvel movies (Spider-Man 3 comes to mind).

    Pictures of Burger King's DOTM Figures...

    Sorry for the blurry pics, but these were taken with a cell phone camera that was not my own... I'll try taking a better picture myself later... But still, you get the basic idea of what they are doing... Looks a little simple, but kinda cute also...

    These things will be available at your local Burger King starting June 20th...

    This is excellent. I love Burger King - too much for my own good, probably.

    Optimus's body in the picture used in the news story reminds me more of Megas XLR.

    Those are frickin' adorable - I'm getting the whole set, even if it means another month of non-stop BK Kids Meals. It'll be worth shortening my lifespan like I did when the Star Wars BK toys came out with episode III.
