    Xovergen Releasing Retooled Transformers Classics Optimus Prime for TrailerForce TF01

    Not only is Xovergen releasing a kit to make your Transformers Classics/Henkei Optimus Prime compatible with their Powermaster TrailerForce TF-01 upgrade set, but they are planning on releasing a completely retooled Classics/Henkei prime figure that will work with both their new Powermaster figure and the Generation 1 Powermaster figures as well! Despite the figure being heavily retooled I do not think it will affect the look of the robot mode as the kibble should just rotate to the back as it does on the original Classics/Henkei mold.

    If they are doing a complete retool, then make it have an openable chest compartment with removable matrix.

    The only retool of this mold I would be interested in is one that re-locates the enormous arm panels.

    Are they really looking to release a modified KO or just simply offer replacement parts for your existing fig?

    I think nobody has figured it out yet. These pictures are old, actually, they were shown BEFORE the recent ones where we can see what appears to be a henkey OP KO made to accomodate the powermaster figure.

    Seems an odd choice to design armor around an existing figure, then sell it with a KO of that figure. I get that it might expand their potential customer base, but then why even stick with the Classics Voyager design at all? (Unless previous design decisions forced their hand of course).

    Still, I thought I knew what this product was (posable PM trailer for Classics/Henkei OR G1 Optimus) and now it's just a weird, line-blurring thing.

    I'm curious to see why a knockoff of an existing figure is necessary for this release rather than, oh I don't know, just the official figure itself or a brand new mold.

    I'm suddenly a bit less enthusiastic for this release since I am not terribly interested in paying a higher price to acquire an armor kit that includes a knockoff of a figure I already own two of (speaking just to Henkei Prime).

    I'll wait for more info, but this is a little weird.

    If what you're saying is correct, then we have no worries. Although we don't know for certain. I'm going to wait on this one.

    they should sell the armor by itself without the stupid figure to keep the costs down.

    If they gonna Ko something, why not KO the original PM prime Cab and add in articulation, that will be something. Classic prime just don't look PM..

    Exactly, and the fact that I get this sinking feeling that the KO Prime is going to be a big honking piece of shit.

    What's the problem here? It seems to me that you can either use G1 Prime, Classics/Henkei Prime OR their "KO Prime" figure in the Trailerforce Armor depending on which you want to use... my assumption is that the trailer comes with whatever you need to retrofit your Classics Prime and then you'll be able to buy the KO Prime by itself if you need it (or just plain don't like how the retrofit bumper looks)

    I would rather see a whole new take on Prime for a classics PM rather than reusing this mold.
