    Well the whatever sized class that this Optimus can land on, I hope there also a Megatron one there, too; But any ways this might going to be good until they reviled it at SDCC.

    Agh, teasing silhouettes always leave me feeling antsy.

    You never know when they're going to spill the beans and you're stuck thinking:

    i could be wrong but i'm pretty sure that the "weapon master" is literally the middle of the gun. Inked36943757_2036219553114895_1139586511621062656_n_LI.jpg Inked354153_VECTOR_PRIME_SPARK_LI.jpg

    It's gonna be Ultra Magnus (in white) :lol :

    Seriously, It's gonna be OP. But it seems there's a PANEL on his forearms especially the one holding the axe.
    If I were to guess it's gonna be a retooled POTP Evolution Prime either a Leader or Voyager with a weapons gimmick.
    And his back being flat as opposed to the Orion Pax backpack, It's gonna be another Character with a less curved thighs than Pax.

    Anyone was saying The Evolution Gimmick is enough to produce Star Saber right?

    Here's my bet... POWER MASTER OPTIMUS PRIME
    But there's no Iconic Dual barreled shoulder cannons Powermaster is known for.

    I'll be surprised if it's entirely a new mold.

    Until we see it in full my money is on new mold. If not an extremely, extremely heavy retooling. That being said, just looking at certain areas of the silhouette they outlined in detail hints to me that it's all new.

    Can we just pray that it's a pretool for a character we actually want. Or it's an exclusive which in that case I don't care.

    The last two voyagers we're pretools, bad ones. (CW, TR) So a good dedicated Voyager Optimus is very exciting.

    Ok. For me, when it's says "New Mold" it should've no traces of the previous mold's mechanism and parts location.
    Like 100% fresh new.

    I agree with the thought that it’s most likely a generations form of the evergreen design. I do hope however it looks like it would be from More than Meets the Eye part one. By that I mean that it takes some cues from the g1 prime design, while looking more cybertronian.

    Speak for yourself, the Optimus that leads my Autobot shelf is TR Laser Prime. But I must concede that a new Optimus mold is good simply because Optimus Prime figures sell well and that's good for the brand.

    I wonder why Hasbro didn't consider making Optimus Prime base from Don Figueroa's art?
    There are 3Ps who made it. The only official one we have was the T30 Legends Prime with Roller.

    Silhouette that's somewhat different than stuff we're already familiar with. YAY!

    It's good to see him with an axe. Has he had a Generations figure that came with one?

    T30 Orion Pax had one, but he only half counts as an Optimus Prime

    A mate just suggested this could be a Pyro Pretool, that would be awesome both for getting a new Pyro and for the master level trolling by hasbro.
