    I have a feeling it's this year's Galactic Shockwave release equivalent, so an online exclusive?

    It wasn't in the Generations Selects leak list, so it's something else

    Maybe like last year's 3-pack Refraktor set then?

    It would suck if Sleep Mode Prime is super limited.

    This has got to be one of the edgiest things Hasbro has ever released besides Universe Nemesis Prime and his blood covered tusks.

    That's not a bad idea, that's pretty probably and about the same level of niche

    In his review, @PrimeVsPrime mentioned that this is also alternate universe optimus prime, so no Fire Convoy homage then... Bummer

    I'm not really bothered by it. The original Fire Convoy's still an amazing figure to this day.

    PrimeVSPrime probably wouldn't know since he gets his review figures without boxes or instructions

    he doesn’t know half the shit he says. There’s plenty of times he’s said inaccurate stuff about a characters in his reviews He got in a chines mailing box covered in styrofoam. He’s going off rumors of an alternate prime but it’s not this.

    If they planned on this recolor, they should have designed the trailer so it could be transformed into his gurnee, with this version painted orange inside (or pink or whatever color it was in the movie).

    Well this is simple now to figure out. @PrimeVsPrime or any one else who has this in hand. Can you look for the Hasbro part number stamp on the figure.


    If the stamp is E7462 than this figure is alternate universe Prime.

    this year is the 10-year anniversary of the Convoy sleep mode Masterpiece figure that the was released takara tomy. so it kind of makes sense we are getting the corpse of optimus prime this year.

    Unless this was supposed to be an exclusive, I honestly don’t see the point. I’m glad some people like it, but I really don’t see this selling well. Personally, there are at least two other repaints I would rather have seen.

    It kinda feels wrong to see him up and standing... zombie Prime? Interesting they remolded the antennae... more like it was bent with a heater. But nice colors.
    Will skip this though, I don\'t really need it to depict a dead Prime... Was never a fan of the \"turns grey when dead\" idea that the movie introduced, it wasn\'t used before (and not used in the comics either), and to me made little sense, if they can do that when dead, wouldn\'t they be able to change their colors when alive, too?
