    People who purchase the Japanese Animated Encyclopedia (available next month) will be entitled to purchase an exclusive Animated Optimus Prime (Elite Guard Ver.) figure.

    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.

    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.

    I'd be happier with a US release announcment. I've accepted that Blackouts never coming over, but COME ON Hasbro with Optimus!

    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.

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

    Id hit it. :D

    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.

    Perhaps it's possible it could be the wing blade parts on the deluxe earth prime mold... all in "elite guard" deco.
