    Some sneak peek at Cybertron Convention 2012 in Singapore.

    Optimus Prime went bad, fired on some military dudes - somehow Optimus Prime had a different coloured optics and he looks kinda rusty looking.

    Should I blame the poor lightings at the convention or should we keep an open mind?

    Check out the video link for more details and speculate away!

    First thoughts, MECH!!! They have successfully cloned the Transformers and thus abused Optimus Prime's position as the Leader of the Autobots - that's why that OP specifically mentioned those.

    what do you guys think?

    Awesome! Thanks for the vid!!!

    That has to be project Chimera: a fabricated Cybertronian (in this case Optimus) wreaking havoc on humanity, turning them against the Autobots or all Cybertronians.

    Maybe MECH got their hands on the Spark Extractor and took over Prime's body with an artificial spark?

    When has Optimus ever looked that dirty, even after being beat up?

    I do, however, think Starscream/MECH will get their hands on the Spark Extractor though. How else will they get Sparks for Starscream's brigade:p

    Could be Scourge, or another amnesia stricken Optimus from the G1 cartoon who's used to Megatron being a gun.

    That transformation sequence was BEAUTIFUL!

    But I don't really know what to think about this clip... We already had amnesiac Optimus, brainwashing him would be a bit like reheating old meatloafs.
    In the recent episode
    the transformers MECH was working on did look a bit like Prime
    , so maybe it's the guy.

    But can the Spark Extractor work like you guys said? After extracting a spark it can be put in a different body? Maybe it is the Project Chimera transformer- after being defeated (that's why he's so dirty) he got a spark on his own by some freak accident? Though he speaks rather flat and emotionless. Aaargh my thoughts are a mess now.

    But it's looks like somebody wants to reveal the existence of Transformers to the world and make the Autobots look like the villains.

    I'm wondering if it might be a disease Prime gets. Hate Plague anyone?

    Actually, I am wondering if MECH is behind this. The Autobots are probably the only ones that could stand in MECH's way besides the Decepticons. Maybe they capture Optimus and take control of him and then turn him on military personal to pursuade the government to try to get rid of the Autobots? The government tells the Bots to leave Earth and they comply? Thus confirming the show's creators affirmation that the Autobots will be leaving Earth for some time in Season 2? I'm wondering if they head into space and find Elita One or Ariel and her crew? After all, the Hasbro team stated at last year's comic con that more female Autobots would be showing up around summer and it has to do with the show, TFP. Perhaps this leads into Hasbro's newly registered property, "Transformers One" which has been reported to possibly be slated for a television series? Hasbro said there would be more TF series in the future. Well we already have "Transformers Prime" and "Rescue Bots". Hasbro stated that wanted to do a "Prime" version of "Beast Wars". I'm wondering if we are getting two more television series. "Transformers One" about Elita One and her crew in space probably fighting Shockwave and his Cons. And then a new "Beast Wars" series set in the "Prime" continuity and possibly in the present day instead of the past.

    That totally make sense! I mean, MECH got a scan on Optimus way back since Convoy, and in the last ep they even reveal the hand of their 'bot, which looks exactly like Optimus'.

    This' gonna be good :cool:

    True, but it did scan the helicopter and the scan was a success.

    Agreed. And also making a bot absolutely identical to Optimus would be a bit... well ridiculous and hardly possible with MECH resources, at least IMHO.
    There are two other McGuffins comming up, maybe one of them will be a some kind of brainwashing device ( <- do not like).

    :jawdropper:  HOLY BALLS! :bay  That was awesome! 'Dat animation! 'Dat detail! And I love how the transformation was so drawn out and 360-degreed, just like the movies. And the way he epically pointed his gun! Colour me excited!

    But as for what exactly is going on...
    I'm gonna' guess that this is one of MECH's experiments. Somehow combining the spark extractor, their experiments, their body scans and possible voice scans to make their own Optimus clone.
