    Received this pic from fellow board member stephenusprime. It is from the November 2009 Issue of Hyper Hobby and purportedly shows a 'Premium' version of ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime by TakaraTomy.

    Either that or it's Buster OP, with a retractable faceplate? :eek: 

    Neither of us can read Japanese but I understand that it will have chrome applications on Prime's blades. Will update if I receive more information.

    I think they just used a picture of the original Prime figure to show the differences with the new face sculpt.

    I'm now thinking that you might be right :( 

    Looking at the two pics, the OPs on either pic have different colored 'horns'.

    I may be wrong on this guys, as I cant even read Japanese.. But what I do know is that this Prime's swords has silver paint on them, where in the original one, it was just orange. Of course face plate is different.

    Again, it may just be Buster Prime without his gun.

    Anyways, here are more closeups: Sorry if it was a false alarm...

    EZ Rampage, I'm guessing they're gonna paint him red?

    On the Prime, that's obviously a comparison of the regular release and buster, lol

    Yep. Both entries 4 and 5 are discussing Buster Optimus Prime. If I have time later today, I'll think through a translation. I don't think its anything we haven't heard before, though...

    Huh. The silhouette appears to belong to EZ Collection Rampage, but the text says "Micron" (and "Present Campaign"). Syd?

    Hai!

    That was in the other magazine as well. That's a new "campaign" figure (shop giveaways with a purchase of certain figure/amount), which is normally a minicon repaint, but this time it's apparently an EZ Rampage.

    It says something like "May and August exclusive items were Microns, but this time..." so it's probably EZ red Rampage.
