    I hope it\'s fake.
    My desire for a purple prime repaint aside, having a dead Optimus toy feels like it\'s trying to tear open an emotional wound from my childhood.

    You can always use him as Walking Dead Optimus. Pose him with "I gotta go to the bathroom" legs, one arm dangling straight down and the other reaching out for you.

    Sure, until Prime sees Hot Rod catch the matrix and jumps up to slap it out of his dumb hands!

    Man if they actually did this with the snazzy clear trailer like MP4S I'd be down. As is I lack the normal one anyway so I might just consider something like this if it were to happen though.
    Unironically I would love a modern figure to do this deco. I actually own the original and bust it out from time it time and it's quite gorgeous. If they DID do it with the siege mold and they gave the cab bot the same black and yellow deco I'd be really happy.
    Honestly I'm disappointed we never even got Delta out of the CW mold but I'd be happy with a siege Delta as well. Heck Magna Convoy was a dream come true so the more homages we get to Powered Convoy the better. Would be extra nice if they based it off the Mekki deco with the white missiles. Shame the MP couldn't include an alt set of those.
    This would be fantastic. And a new Galvatron is sorely needed since the last one was garbage.

    Huh, well this is an easy pass. Probably be some kind of exclusive so that will make it that much easier. Great for anyone that wanted a corpse of Optimus though. :lol

    In the coming weeks and months I suspect you might feel a bit sheepish/defensive.

    Also, Sam's Club RiD Optimus Prime secret homage for the win.

    I want this to happen now. Really badly.

    I think he means that some folks have seen some additional leaked pics proving the reality of the figure, and the assumption of this as a fake is untrue.

    not sure why anyone would think this is fake, we'd already heard rumors it was coming.
    The blue bedspread, bluish tint to the silver painted parts and yellowish tint to the grey plastic make it unlikely that it's simply been desaturated.

    The big tell to me that it's real is the greyscale trailer tampo, that just looks to well executed in it's tones to be fake.

    As ‘lovely’ as Golden Shower Magnus is, I’m hoping for Delta / ‘Movie Preview’ Magnus!

    Also, if we’re getting Corpsimus Prime there’s gotta be a Movie Starscream coming... Now, would it be regular Coronation, Disintegrated or Ghost Starscream? (granted its Season 3 Starscream, but the latter could even fit in with Ghostbusters!) I think we all know this is where Skywarp’s open mouth face is likely coming from.

    I was 100% sure this was a Photoshop because it just seems obviously de saturated, but doing that in Photoshop doesn't change those light blue stripes to that dark color seem on the trailer here so this is either real, or it's a Photoshop with a little extra work on it to make it seem less like a straight 1 step Photoshop.
