Animated Elite Guard Optimus Prime Images and further details

We have received some further information regarding the Elite Guard Animated Optimus Prime, who will be a Million Publishing Mail Away exclusive with the purchase of the Transformers Animated Encyclopedia. Despite what the cover shows, the toy will be a redeco of Animated Voyager Optimus Prime, not Wingblade Optimus Prime as the silhouette suggests (products may vary, kids!). Million Publishing's page for the book has updated, with not only images of the toy itself which looks slick in red and black with gold highlights, but the page also gives information about how this is a "what-if" Optimus Prime - this is what Animated Optimus Prime could have been, if he'd stayed on as a member of the Elite Guard.

I want to know if they take reservations from the US? I want one.
Erector
Arrgh I want a proper colour one

... UM repaint, anyone?

EDIT: if this looks like Fire Guts God Ginrai I am over this faster than Rosie O'Donnell over burgers.
Pyro
I can't wait for a picture of this.
Fort Max
Decent price for the book, very keen to see what this repaint looks like.
Optimus Vader
Is Wingblade Prime still unconfirmed for the US?
Creaky
Interesting. Animated is doing well over there then I take it?

What do you have against burgers? I think you owe McDonald's and Burger King an apology. What's next donuts?

darn you takara, you tempt me almost as much as hasbro

Not that I'll ever have it anyway, but I hope it is something more than a metallic prime color. I hope it is gray and navy blue... for some reason.
Kaijumaster
I'd be happier with a US release announcment. I've accepted that Blackouts never coming over, but COME ON Hasbro with Optimus!
Darkprime
If anyone can help hook me up for this, please email or PM me. Thanks!

No confirmation either way.

God. Dammit.

I'm getting sick of this lack of Wingblade Optimus.
And now, Japan gets another one!?

Past Million Publication's mail order exclusives included CoD shipping cost in the price, and I assume this will be the same. 4900yen is probably the price of regular voyager class OP+ CoD shipping, since Wingblade OP costs 4700yen or so by the figure alone. That is why the cost of the two figures are cheaper.

^ Yeah, totally agree, man!
Animated homage to Fire Guts God Ginrai would be so shameful, that it would be totally illegal.

Id hit it.

oh my. Maybe Amazon JP will ship books like DVDs.

The 112 page encyclopedia will cost 1,680 yen and is available for order at Books Rakuten, Amazon JP and Red Mercury.

Each purchase of the book entitles the buyer to a maximum of 2 pieces of the exclusive figure.

Each figure will cost 4,900 yen. Orders of two figures will be sold at the slightly discounted price of 9,200 yen.

Based on the silhouette of the figure on the cover, it will be a repaint of the voyager class Prime figure with Wingblade parts.

Please wait!A shipping cost is included in 4,900 yen of the price of OPTIMUS PRIME.

1 figure 4,900 yen
2 figures 9200 yen

This can expect that I become the price that reflected a shipping cost.
The price of Wingblade OPTIMUS PRIME to release in September is 4,725 yen.
Wingblade OPTIMUS PRIME Elite Guard Ver. thinks 4,900 yen to be a mistake including a shipping cost.I think that this is an Elite Guard version of TA -1 OPTIMUS PRIME.

This stuff iis the reason why I told myself I was only goona buy Hasbro Animated Japan as way to many exclucives.
Edgewise
Perhaps it's possible it could be the wing blade parts on the deluxe earth prime mold... all in "elite guard" deco.
sokutai
great i decide to collect animated exclusives and japan gets at least 11 so far.. but i hope this looks cool
kurdt_the_goat
The Rakuten link in the first post is wrong, this is the correct one.
cheetor71
What I can't stand is the fact that the Japanese market always gets the better toys. I wanted the figure when I thought Hasbro was releasing it. But for what it will cost to get this version, I'm gonna pass on it.

You've already got one FGGG, let the rest of us have a go!
Soundscream
Awesome... Animated never dies.
cobra zartan
Bah I was hoping they would lay off the exclusives for a few weeks.
Lucario Prime
Could someone outline the procedure for getting one of these guys in Canada?

Probably buy it from an import shop/site, or ebay, or get a hookup with Bodhar. I don't think you can buy the book and mail in the form for the toy unless you're in Japan.
TedimusPrime
I just think it's logical to see wingblade deluxe prime priced at voyager or so in the US in the next five years. It's a created mold and a biiiig name character, so it will likely be released sometime, even if it's not for the animated line but a later universe-like line. So I'll wait.
chrisr291
I'll wait till I see pictures
Jarodimus
Takara's gonna kill me with all these Animatedo exclusives. But I'm totally in!
Nightrain
So it's gonna be, what, $150 at BBTS?
Tiller
As cool as it is, can we just get a NORMAL colored Wingblade Prime instead of the clear and EG versions? I fear as though this mold will never get released like this.

The clear version has a clear main figure, but opaque wing blade parts. So have that, and then any other opaque version of the voyager or deluxe earth Prime.
Loosecannon
Which clear wingblade prime are you talking about?

The elite guard is this set...

The normal version is due out in sept....

Clear set?
soldierstar
They've already released the crystal OP maybe this one will be pimped out in chrome
Edgewise
Crystal Deluxe OP & Crystal Hot Rod have been released.

The Japanese Wingblade Prime being released in September has a mostly Crystal Voyager OP figure. The Wingblade parts are not Crystal. That is the 'normal' version.
SPLIT LIP
The normal Wingblade Op IS clear.

That said none of the Japanese Animated versions of Prime have enticed me one bit. I just want the American Wingblade version to come out.

Does "better" mean "less show accurate?"

Are there any images of it around?

Meh, too much going on with the deco to look really good.

SPLIT LIP
That is the ugliest deco I've seen on the mould.
SteadyMobin
Yeah he's pretty sweet, kind of favors blk optimus but
still a buy for me.
Soundscream
Haha I know what you mean Primal

I like Animated Rescue Ratchet for instance. It said Rescue Ratchet on the box and I took it quite literally and rescued the poor fellow =D

But still... This one is ugly but it's growing on me too...
Nightrain
I dunno. He has an impressive amount of detail, but I'm on the fence about the colors.
