    Well, if true, this is an interesting redeco. Not one I would get, but interesting nonetheless.

    Asia gets expensive exclusives. Hopefully it will not cost more than $100.

    This is not fake. I received the same solicit and image today. I'm just not sure if enough people here would care worth a damn for such a thing to make it worth carrying it...

    seems badly photoshopped, but seeing as that this news has been on a bunch of sights, it might be real. In that case, it's an interesting concept

    Based solely on the image....I want to say that it's a fake. That said, since it's being backed-up, it's probably real. I definitely like the idea behind it, but I feel the execution is going to be horrible. It wouldn't happen, but if the Deluxe Prime w/trailer set coming out next year was given a similar repaint, I would get it. Might help that I was born on the year of the dragon, lol. However, this being the Ultimate Optimus mold, and more than likely costing a large sum of dough, I'll gladly be skipping it.

    I'm Asian and I don't even want it. There is absolutely no point to this repaint.

    Well, let me put it this way. Why would my suppliers (or Catz's) be sending me fake solicitations? The supplier I got this from is in good standing, and it simply makes no sense. If they're soliciting this, then they got their info from Hasbro or Takara. Sure, it may be partly photoshopped, but then, the first images of almost EVERYTHING we see from Takara are photoshopped, so why shouldn't something from Hasbro for the Asian market only be the same way?
