    Looks like God Ginrai from the outline. Similar to the Xovergen and X-Transbots teasers...\

    Big, skinny thighs and one hell of a lunchbox.

    Sounds familiar......

    Is there a chance it's just add-ons for Evasion Prime or are we looking at the completely new figure?

    It's definitely a movie Prime.

    To me, the silhouette has all elements of EP, except it looks like they added some shoulder pieces to make the alt mode more G1 (two smokestacks) and different feet.

    Hey, that's actually a good theory now that I look closer at the silhouette. So this could be an add-on upgrade kit for Evasion Mode Optimus. If so, neat, I may bite!

    Looks like new feet (or added foot fillers), new head, and arm stacks. And for some reason the wheel panels are mistransformed and left up.

    If they make a panel that fills in the back of truck mode and doesn't have to partform, I may bite.

    ^ Good eye. Considering how many times HasTak is reusing the EM OP mold and how popular he seems to be among the fandom (on both sides of the Pacific), an upgrade kit to make it more screen accurate (or at least even cooler than it already is) would probably sell very well, I think.

    I know a lot of us own more than one Evasion Mode OP. If this is indeed an upgrade kit for the mold, I would expect it to sell like gangbusters!

    Those feet DO NOT match movie Prime. Neither do the wheels on his lower legs, like evasion Prime (which isn't accurate). Everything else, however, does. To me, this looks like a 3P analog of AOE evasion mode Optimus

    Can we get back to talking about the actual product and not about who speaks what language and the websites companies choose to use to communicate with their fans.

    Looking forward to updates.

    If this is something for Evasion Prime (which it pretty clearly is) then I'm all about that. Evasion Prime is one mold I plan on having numerous copies of and as well as any add-ons.

    +1. Makes me wonder why he's not a mod or at least part of the TFW News Staff by now considering it seems like half the threads with new 3P announcements are started by him. :D 

    The other possibility is that this is a complete, self-contained KO copy of the EM OP mold but with added changes and "improvements". That would be ballsy on the part of the 3P and stranger things have happened. But an upgrade kit for EM OP seems the most likely scenario (offered in different decos to match HasTak's various iterations of the mold) and probably the most affordable and profitable. I know I personally will have at least 2 such figures to upgrade, maybe even three.

    I didn't expect this set to be a Powermaster upgrade for AOE Evasion Optimus Prime. :)  That looks sweet.
