    It's not an altered photo

    Why would a nemesis have an autobot logo? Any use of ER Prime's mold HAS to come with the trailer

    This is equally true of every other toy in the Earthrise line, though.

    I...just...why?

    I mean I guess I got it for MP-01 since...well...they were running that thing into the ground, but...as a mainline release and only the second version of the mold, this is fuckin' weird

    Could be. After all that was how Optimus came back as in the Marvel comics.

    When we got word this was coming a little back, I was kind of bummed out that this was going to be the first repaint of this version of the mold we were going to get. It just seems like the most boring repaint they could of chose for it.

    It just doesn’t do anything for me, and this is coming from the guy who likes wasting his money on the whacky repaints over the main line versions of the toys.

    But for those who like it, I’m happy for you.

    Maybe if they included the clear “ghost” trailer the Masterpiece version did I’d be more interested. Maybe robot mode pics or something that’s included with it will change my mind. Otherwise it’s at least $50 saved for me.

    Yeah, I'm not sure if it's something I'd get too, but I definitely appreciate the fact that it exists. I would've preferred getting Nemesis or SG Prime first, but this is still pretty cool no matter what.

    Interesting, looks slightly fake to me but I\'ll buy it for now. It seems like a good idea, now give me my PMOP!

    If only as part of the exclusives from Takara-Tomy as with Delta Magnus, but only on the basis of WFCS mold.

    If we’re getting Dead Optimus and potentially Dead coronation Starscream, then I demand a Reformatted Deco Megatron!

    Or even better, A birth of Galvatron two pack, with a new Galvatron and Megatron

    Hope it has bright blue eyes or something to contrast all the shades of gray and black. Might even get it over the regular version because I have enough basic blue and red Optimi

    I want Delta too. But he wasn't part of the scene where Optimus dies.

    They\'ll market it as: \"Optimus Prime when he didn\'t practice social distancing\"

    Now do Sleepjack, Sleepcharger, Ironsleep and Ratchdead. It can be a TFTM Studio Series Wave of the Dead!

    The cab looks desaturated to me, like it was done in Photoshop, but I'm no expert. If it's real, man is it boring...

    Dead Optimuses always make me wonder.... do people pose these guys on their shelves? I have the MP-1 dead (er, “sleep”) repaint and I literally don’t think I have ever had him posed any other way than arms-at-sides, straight-legs, rigor mortis-style. I guess sometimes I might turn the head to one size. But articulation almost seems wasted on these repaints. :)

    Looks fake as hell. I’ll wait for better evidence before getting excited.

    I’ll get it if real though.
