    Honestly, I doubt it for 2 reasons.
    1: This isn't even branded as part of earthrise
    2: It's called Alternate Universe Optimus Prime, meaning in the "main universe" (WFC) he probably won't die, otherwise they'd have called him something else

    Although if he were to die, he'd probably just come back with a jetpack made of the remains of a fallen decepticon and a lust for blood or something.

    They had a chance to sell him voyager priced without the cheapish trailer that died.

    No, they didn't, as parts of the bot and trailer are on the same mold.

    No they didn't, parts of the cab are gang molded with the trailer (specifically the hands, biceps and calves), this specific mold will NEVER be released without the trailer. If they recut the molds to put the parts gang molded with the trailer onto the cab sections then it's possible, but not likely to happen as those parts got moved to the trailer molds due to space and making new molds is expensive. And before you say they could gate off parts, there is no evidence to support the idea that they made the Prime mold in a manner where the hands, elbows and calves could be gated off from the rest of the trailer.

    I think this release it's going to breathe a new life onto my mildly dead boring G1 Optimus shelf.

    I really do think PMOP is next. Not sure if it'd be Earthrise or WfC3, but if Optimus doesn't die there's no Rodimus...

    Unless maybe there's a new Armada Prime coming? (Not the one from Takara). The Battle and Micromasters would make for a very smooth transition there.

    Can someone tell me how to add this to my wishlist and do a preorder? I can't figure it out and apparently the person that posted instructions on twitter has me blocked ( which is weird since I never interacted with them ).

    Open someone else's wishlist that has the item, click the Pre-order option.
    Make sure the name/address are your own when you go through checkout.
    If that wishlist doesn't show it for you, try mine: Check out my list on Amazon

    --
    Updated with non smile.amazon wishlist link

    My guess, based on a certain toy's spoilers, is someone other than Prime fills the "tragic death scene" (if there even is one) quota for the Netflix series, and Alternate Universe (Sleep Mode) Prime is just a fun Selects-style homage to the '86 movie.

    I get this

    Looking for something?
    We're sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site

    So that didn't work. I don't have a link to anyone's wishlist that has it preordered.

    Click this link, click preorder to add to cart, ignore the image of nerf darts

    I'm still doubtful that that character actually dies, watch, he will pop up without extra bits in the 2nd series and get new extra bits.

    If that is the case, that will be a refreshing change. At this point the "tragic death to motivate the rest of the cast" is so overplayed in Transformers that it just isn't tragic anymore.

    You may have to already be signed in to Amazon, not sure.
    EDIT - my link works if I'm signed it, but not if I'm not. It may be because mine is a smile.amazon.com link. Glad you got it sorted with Fenrys' link.

    That wouldn't be unprecedented. Studio Series did a version of it with SS32 and SS44. The only difference there was "the new extra bits" for SS32 were an entirely different leader class figure rather than a trailer.

    So maybe some of the pegs and tabs that seem like remnants now actually come in to play next time.

    Agreed, granted I suppose a more accurate version of the character could always come out in studio series, so it remains to be seen. Him being dead would be a waste though

    Awesome, glad that one worked for ya

    We are referring to Ultra Magnus and his netflix spoiler box
