It.... looks just like Hero Optimus Prime. Yay? This may as well be the box art for the original G2 toy. I'm not saying it's bad, but...... just generic. And boring.

MTMTE and Optimus Prime!? Awesome! Maybe I will subscribe the magazine!
(few seconds later)
Wait a minute, "Optimus Prime"? But, he is under the name of Orion Pax in MTMTE and RID...
(read the article)
...It wasn't IDW's MTMTE comic series...

Sorry to poop on this, but it makes no sense. Truck mode's windshield is shown on feet. Yet chest is crafted to like a windshield, obviously a G1 homage. Now, if this were a toy, I'd accept this as a false part(where the toy can't realistically be as complex as the fictional counterpart, so rules are bent for character design accuracy) but this isn't a toy. Did OP choose to have a glass-armored chest cavity, though vitals would be less protected? Or, is it so he is recognizible after a makeover? The only possible way this makes sense is if they were two vehicles combined to begin with. Also, the tires of the abdomen area and the feet area are likely not the same size. I don't typically like to point out flaws and stuff, but I saw the title and thumbnail and immediately thought this was a sneak peek one of their exclusive toys for the year. Oddly enough, I came to the computer seeking info on the original mold use for RID Scourge, so my mind was in a similar place. Really odd, don't you think?

I'm confused. It's based on the G2 Combat Hero Prime, fake windows and all.

If only Unicron would eat Funpub, so we didn't have to deal with all these stupid alternate reality stories. :/
