    They're doing dead Optimus. Dead Starscream isn't going to be far behind.

    So the trailer can "die" too?

    Just clean your room and gather all the dust and there you have it, no way I'm spending 30 dollars on dust:D

    Why are you getting so worked up over something that MIGHT happen?

    Lmao, someone just took a photo of their ER Prime on their bed then edited the pic so he's in black and white, even I could do that using GIMP

    I won't be surprised if this is officially announced as part of a Hasbro Fan's First Friday. Now to consider if I want the normal deco or not...

    This is a great exclusive, if that is indeed what it is. It's something not needed, but for those that want it it's available in a limited fashion. I'm on board.

    I seriously doubt those are meant for mainline releases. They're far more likely to be exclusives celebrating key moments from the 86 TF movie which I would be shocked if they didn't do given Hasbro's hyper G1 focus for the WFC trilogy. Believe me they're more likely to have those slots filled with remaining 86 movie characters that have yet to get the WFC treatment like Rodimus and Galvatron.

    I'm thinking, if this is legit, it's probably an ER Nemesis Prime repaint. Not sure why a "dead Optimus Prime" release would include a trailer with matching colors?

    Because, too date, there hasn't been a Selects figure that *hasn't* included all of the original accessories. Even Galactic Man Shockwave had all the armor.

    I'm currently using a KO black Classics Optimus for my "sleep mode" version wouldn't mind at all picking up this figure though, especially since it'll be better quality than a floppy KO (which I guess in some way does make sense for depicting a battered and dying Optimus).

    Personally I'd love to see a Nemesis Prime repaint. Like the colors are dull but somehow look hollow (in a good way) and seeing as how this a "close enough" Nemesis Prime I might pass on this...still need to get ER Prime though

    I see the potential for a new line here:

    Transformers: Dead Universe

    Where everyone is just a grey-scale repaint.

    Maybe we'll eventually get a Shining Piss Siege Ultra Magnus too?

    I'm sure we will get a Nemesis Prime figure. I think this is only the second or third time there has been a dead OP toy.
