2005 Boards member cobra zartan has shared with us some test shot images of the upcoming Generations Deluxe class Orion Pax. This toy represents a young Autobot law enforcer already on the path to becoming the greatest hero of Cybertron - Optimus Prime! He will be a part of Generations Deluxe Wave 5 which is due for a release sometime this summer. His wavemates will be Bumblebee, Megatron and Trailcutter - each of them based on their appearances in IDW's Transformers comics!

Looks nice. Keep up the good work. Also where do you keep getting these from?
shroobmaster
I am actualy really excited for this one the most out of that wave. Looking forward to possible retools too! Maybe a Kup?
General Tekno
Looks like a really solid truck mode.

And a Kup retool would be somewhat appropriate, given the Kup mold got repainted into the eHobby Orion Pax and all.
Maverick Hunter Christian
His axe looks way cooler in purple!
Transbot90210
I haven't seen test shots in forever, its the return of an old treat.
slugslinger2004
Can't wait to get my hands on this mold
rosewater
Awesomeness. I was going to sell this one once I got it, but I've changed my mind. It looks too damned good!
Nemesis Jazz
Anyone else see hasbro retooling this into Rodimus?
Blastimusprime
those colors look kinda nice
SPLIT LIP
Looks slick as hell. Love the wepaons. Bot mode plz.
BScorpinok75
i wonder how this would look decoed as Electro
Digilaut
Not the biggest fan of the truck mode. Looks nice, but sort of unbalanced? I dunno.

Doesn't matter though. Want this thing for the robot mode <3
Oh, and cool that he comes with both an axe and the ion blaster.


Doubt this will get a Kup remold, by the way. We got a Kup very recently...
Anguirus
Is it weird that I think this looks great in these colors? This looks like just a very versatile mold.

oh i would so be all over a Kup repaint of this

As Orion, I think ill be passing. I dont like that giant out-of-place blue strip on the hood of the truck mode. just looks weird to me :T

Yes.

I hope a 3rd Party makes a trailer though.

My gut keeps telling me this could be remolded into Skids.

Looks like a nice mold. If we hadn't already had Kup, and if Electro weren't almost guaranteed to be a Botcon exclusive this year, I'd say this was destined to be repainted as one of those characters (it would be especially good for Electro, I think).

But, given those existing or presumed-to-exist figures, Id say the most likely repaint for this guy is Scorch. The truck mode seems to suggest it as well, with what could pass for jet boosters mounted in its flatbed. And the windshield chest would work for Scorch as well (though Scorch could also work as a repaint of Trailbreaker, whom he already strongly resembles).

Another tip-off... Scorch just got re-named and re-introduced as "Singe" in the Kreon line. Basics cross-marketing practice suggests that he'll have another version sometime soon. Mark my words, either this mold or the Trailbreaker mold will be released as "Singe" in the next year or two.

That mold looks really nice! Even if he gets a good redeco, the Ion Cannon and Axe look pretty cool to.redeco

Though that's not guaranteed; Kre-O also happens to be a great vehicle for holding on to mass numbers of names just in case.

Oh, yeah, definitely. I know it's no guarantee, at all. This is merely a prediction/speculation.

I actually think an Electro repaint is still a decent possibility for this mold, even if a Botcon version is in the wings. It wouldn't be the first time Botcon and Hasbro released different versions of the same character, though there'd likely be a time gap.

In the meantime this looks like a nice figure in its own right, as Orion.
Josh
oh man.... an Electro repaint would be FANTASTIC

id buy it then

1. New classics toy is revealed
2. Somebody will suggest it be retooled into Skids, no matter who the original character is or what the alt-mode is
3. ???
4. Profit!!

It never fails...
soymonk
That axe looks pretty sweet in translucent purple.

My biggest complaint is that the flap jus sits there behind his head, but it looks to be a pretty decent mold.

I am told I buy too many Optimus Primes. This time I can say "But it's not Optimus Prime, it's Orion Pax!"
SMOG
In these test-shot colours, you could actually get a reasonable Kup out of this mold as it is.

Hasbro should troll us and release Kickback or one of the Predacons as Skids.

Also, boo on the one set of pinned wheels and one set of clip wheels. The only thing worse than a full set of clip wheels is a half set of clip wheels.
Mr.Deflok
Looks nicer than I thought. Have the wave preordered but wasn't sure if I'd open it. Seems I might.

so is Skids the last "original" autobot to not have a classics toy now?

If I'm to take "original" as 1984-1985, then no. Gears, and the other Dinobots are still waiting for official updated toys, along with Skids.

Natch, I always forget the dinobots. But yes, that's what I meant. Poor Skids & Gears!

Also, Huffer. And arguably Seaspray.

Hello E Rodimus. :3

Also, they should do a line of test shot colored figures. G2 colors FTW.

We need Skids more than ever now. IDW Skids plox.
GAUGE
Bring on IDW Skids ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!

I demand it. He's got so many awesome weapons built into him.
rosewater
I really want to see a pic of the bot mode so I can see what those flap dealies do...

However you feel about Unicron Trilogy molds being used in a Classics collection, Huffer got an updated figure from the Botcon 2007 offerings. Then there's also the PCC Huffer.

I had forgotten about Seapsray, however. My bad.

No, but I could possibly see a Kup, Ironhide, or Ratchet.

I don't quite count BotCon exclusives.
Anti Spark
Nice pick-up. Gawd awful rims.
Stepper
Kup is definitely a possible character for a repaint for this mold.
[Wing_Saber-X]
neato. Dunno why but i get a pre-earth Animated Op vehicular vibe for this..

Totally. I'd even be ok with a molded in gun in one hand too.
rosewater
Why do so many people want a new Kup from this mold? Is there something wrong with the Generations Kup? Because I think he's pretty boss. They should repaint this guy as Dion. And give us a Skids with an all new mold all his own.

Would work for Dion, and maybe Ironhide. But that's about it.
