    Drew Nolosco from WoTC posted on Reddit an incredibly rare card made for WoTC staff only. It's both a Magic the Gathering card and a Transformers TCG card featuring the Autobot Leader in 3 new styles. It's a folding card with G1 Optimus from TF TCG depicted on the larger unfolding part, truck mode, and MTG character on the folded bits.

    Magic Bot mode here:
    Heroes of the Realm Promo - Optimus Prime, Inspiring Leader : magicTCG

    TF TCG Truck Mode here:
    Optimus Prime, Inspiring Leader

    I've only been able to find clear pics of the MTG and Truck mode portions. Besides a YouTube screenshot, does anyone have a link to a clear unfolded pic of Optimus?

    The biggest TF board in the world has no conversation about this card? Speechless!

    Not that I don’t have an opinion but it’s a card that will never see play as it’s only for Staff. Plus I have no idea of the Bot side

    So, it will not be publicly available? Hmm, kinda sucks to be honest. So far I got every card, shame.

    Maybe a staff member will sell theirs but highly unlikely

    Found the Bot mode pic.

    11 Stars

    Bot mode: 6 attack, 16 health, 1 defense; Leader, Melee
    When you flip to this mode upgraded with the Matrix of Leadership -> each of your other characters gains Bold 3 until end of turn.

    Alt mode: 4 attack, 16 health, 2 defense; Leader, Truck, Melee
    Other characters you control have Tough 1 and cannot be dealt non-attack damage. When this attacks -> search your scrap pile for The Matrix of Leadership and place it into your hand.

    Maybe they will release him with another artwork... perhaps in a future Energon Edition?

    In the Vector Sigma interview with Drew at PAX, he mentioned that the Heroes of the Realm cards are customized with the WOTC employees names that they are awarded to.
