Wow. That's no upgrade set.

There isn't a single damn piece from the RTS Optimus mold on that thing. It's BASED on it, but everything there is new.
Here's a list of stuff I'm looking for!

They are going to milk the battle tanker until the mold self destructs. Or till our wallet is dry.

So uh, how many iterations of this trailer mold are there going to be? Looks like they just entirely ditched the Hasbro mold now and are making their own base figure.

Nova Prime? Seems like the backpack isn't attached in the back shot and goes with the whole angle vibe. Kinda looks bad in vehicle mode from the back. "Cybertronion" doesn't save this one from all the crap sticking out of it.

VERY interesting... it's a completely new sculpt that shares engineering with RTS G2 Prime.

Even more interesting - looking at Don's concept art for Nova Prime, it's clearly the same altmode (there's only a few small differences, but otherwise it's recognizably the same vehicle) but the robot mode is different.

EDIT: Found a pic of it online - it's clearly Nova Prime's altmode, down to the armored up mode chest being on the back of the trailer.

BT Toons - updates Tuesdays and Fridays.

That is... An odd way to do nova prime

But I'm certainly looking forward to more!

MAKETOYS new figure, nova prime?

Credit encline's fb as he posted it

Looks a bit like Nova, but who knows. Seems to use a lot of the RTS g2 prime and battle tanker though.

Gimme a like over at Facebook!
