Take this as a rumor for now. TFW2005 member Catz, who has never steered us wrong yet, has shared with us some listings for upcoming Platinum Edition releases in the Age of Extinction toyline. While some of the listings (like Autobots United) we've heard of before there are two new ones:
- A First Edition Leader Optimus Prime with trailer, who comes with Stinger. Previously revealed in the Toys R Us computers, but this is the first we have heard of the mold choices... and Stinger.
- A five pack of Dinobots in black and gray decos
Perhaps we shall learn more about these at the San Diego Comic Con?
(Pictured, Takara-Tomy's Black Knight Grimlock. Could the Dinobots five pack have a similar deco?) Update:
Retailer etoysjapan.com has posted 2 images with silhouettes of figures for these listings.
The Prime with Trailer & Stinger set seems to have a bot that looks like Movie Sideswipe (blade arms), so it's possible the Stinger is a reapaint of that rather than a new mold.
There is also an image of the Dinobots set, showing an unmistakable Slog (Sludge).
Both are listed for an October release.
