    It's time for another TFW site gallery update! This past weekend in Japan was the Tokyo Toy Show 2012, which had two exclusive Transformers toys - one of which was a black version of Classics Optimus Prime. Based on an unreleased Wonderfest design that was originally conceived for the Henkei line, United Black Optimus Prime depicts the heroic Optimus Prime taking up a Decepticon persona to infiltrate the enemy, but he might have gone too far an unleashed his repressed dark side in the process:

    A new Decepticon ground troop had falsely claimed themselves to be Autobots and were causing havoc in many parts of Earth. To stop the disturbances, Optimus Prime used the enemy's tactic himself and planned to infiltrate the Decepticons camp. He repainted his body in jet-black and applied Decepticon insignia on his shoulders to make himself "Black Optimus Prime". He destroyed everything in his path as if his suppressed inner desires were unleashed. What actually happened to him...?

    Check out the full gallery of this new version of Optimus Prime to see plenty of pictures of both robot and alternate mode, along with comparisons with the 2008 San Diego Comic Con exclusive Nemesis Prime, another convention exclusive "evil Optimus Prime" from this same mold. Give a big thanks to SydneyY for the gallery!

    RiD Prowl you could potentially custom a Universe Red Alert - go for his "super" colours so he looks distinct though. Reason being, RiD Prowl was originally named Mach Alert in Japan, which makes him a Red Alert variant in the same way that God Magnus was Ultra Magnus. The body could be made about 80% accurate, you might want a new head though, or even a transplant of the RiD head onto the Red Alert body.

    X-Brawn, again you might want to look at a head swap, but Universe Ironhide's body is closest. Might want to try using a Ratchet and going for the super colours again so the base toy is more or less the right deco.

    The TF concept and storyline was all pretty realistic up till that point, though...

    ;) 

    I agree the red windows look great, as do the Con symbols on the shoulders. Just not sure it's a $100 upgrade.

    Even though I already have the mold this looks great! Storywise I would have preferred it if he was some type of clone instead of OP painting himself and then telling the cons that he is Optimus.
