Images of Transformers Museum Black Animated Optimus Prime

KOToys has posted a small gallery of the Transformers Museum exclusive piece Transformers Animated Optimus Prime Black Version. This piece which is limited to 300 pieces at the event itself will also see a second run of at least 1000 pieces later this year, according to boards member bodhar2000. It carries on Takara-Tomy's tradition of taking an Optimus Prime and painting him black with red windows and teal highlights in the style of the Jafcon Convoy or the unreleased WonderFest Henkei Convoy.

That is quite beautiful!

I like. Just wish he had a con logo instead


Is this exclusive and expensive? I'd get one and some repro labels...
Optimus Prime
Wow. I'm considering canceling my Predaking pre-order so I can afford one of these. That looks awesome.

It was a safe bet to predict takara would color that animated prime toy black.

almost every new prime mold gets colored black by takara.

now it appears the newest thing is doing translucent colored prime toys.

I think it's a safe bet to assume that Takara won't be doing any white ultra magnus recolors using the optimus prime mold for a while. As the ultra magnus character appears to be stealing back his mojo & getting unique style G-1 ultra magnus new molds.

Not sure why he's an autobot, but who am I kidding I'd love to have one, but alas, he will be the only animated figure missing from my collection.

News Flash... not 300 pieces... over 1000!!! Price is dropping significantly.

Straight from bodhar2000's mouth. Front page this because people don't need to pay 200+ for this item

2 places, one loose (Which I feel ripped off now but you live and learn) and bodhar2000. Apparently, there will be another event with at least a thousand of them on hand. This isn't going to be rare at all

EDIT: If you brought one from him, check your email, you should have a refund already

He could do without the pale grey on the axe/gun but that mold sure looks great in nemesis colours . I just need to find a 'Con insignia or 2...

Thanks for the tip, I would have dropped $175 on a loose one otherwise. Hopefully I'll get a boxed later release for less, because I definitely don't want to miss out on this toy.

Oh, awesome! I'm an Animated and Black Convoy collector; I was fearing how I'd get ahold of this.

That's because Takara doesn't always assign the black redeco as an evil version of Optimus. Many of the black Primes they've released over the years are basically heroic Optimus in a new paintjob.

I don't mind the seeker repaints but I just could never get into the black OP's.

Black is beautiful!

Okay, i need to get this. And ill just paint over any bot symbol and buy reprolabel animated decepticon ones
Emperor Zarak

Good, that is about what I paid on eBay. I feel better .

9 times out of 10 I'm a sucker for a black repaint... but not this. I'm not keen on how the sliver stripe on the truck mode turns teal when it hits the arm, I know it looks cool in robot mode but it just does not work in truck mode.
Pravus Prime
Well, I cancelled a few other pre-orders and ordered one of these from BBTS. I figure with later shipment Seacons and Wingblade Prime, I'll wait until all three are in stock then ship them together at once.

I figured a black repaint was inevitable. While I'd like it even cheaper, gotta take what you can get. Such is the curse of a Black Convoy collector.

This came in the mail today.

Too expensive for a repaint.
SamiWCP
I got one off a seller on ebay for 110$ You can DEFINITELY find them cheaper than some of the online stores.

I got mine for 145 shipped. Hopefully I won't regret buying it at that price.

Hell, iGear has them on their site for $150. But, I bet they come loose.
