    As far as I know, there is only one that has ever been seen in person, and it was on display at Hasbro HQ in the "toys that were cancelled" cabinet along with the prototyped unreleased Titaniums, Toxitron, and the pre-Alternators concept models.

    We got to see it because Hasbro did a series of special tours for Botcon goers. :D 

    I believe its release has been left unlikely, mostly due to creative ties to the former Botcon organizers (3H).

    yea but ultimately its a takara figure/product and would be produced by them, so they should produce it and the hell with the garbage surrounding it.

    That's a beautiful piece. A great repaint. It'd be cool if the voices (of Prime) get changed to fit Hot Spot.

    I'd love to see the Club get that for an Exclusive. It'd sell as well as any of the figures we're getting this year from them IMO.

    Funny. I always thought that was a custom piece. Never knew it was actually a unproduced official figure.

    Its cool as hell, but I'd prefer some Universe Protectobots personally

    I would buy that in a heartbeat, too. I've always wanted another version of that mold and this deco fits it like a glove.

    Well its sort of a custom piece. The actual prototype is a repainted yellow Optimus Prime/Fire Convoy (a Sams club release, I think). I recall hearing the head was handsculpted, but I can't remember the exact details.

    If Hasbro were to release it, I would buy it (even if it was shoe-horned into the new Universe line). After getting the origional deco of the mold earlier this year, I wouldn't mind getting a repaint/remold of it. I think the two of them would actually display well next to each other too.

    It's a shame that he's been shelved and will probably never see the light of day thanks to all the crap that went down with 3H and OTFCC.

    Still, with the new Universe line coming out... and while they may not want to have a mass retail Leader Class it could work as a store exclusive... they could put him into Universe. Especially with their penchant for doing the combiner team leaders as individual figures. And I think it would fit in well too so there wouldn't be too much shoehorning... aside from the inevitable 'no repaints in my Universe line' lot, but even they might be swayed with the Super Mode's new head sculpt.

    ...probably a pipe dream though...

    There's actually a small handful od test shots that were produced. I know a fellow who got hold of one between BotCon 2006 and 2007. Cost him around $3k.

    I wonder if we send say 1000 or so signatures, if they'll make it!
