    That’d be my first guess of what this is. There’s something about this that feels like an exclusive to me.
    Doesn’t seem like the right description for it. I’m thinking AU Optimus is a completely different redeco that uses the same mold since we don’t have any confirmed Leader redecos in Earthrise yet.

    Does this mean we aren’t getting an Optimus in part 3 of WFC? Probably not.

    Commander Class Powermaster Optimus, most likely.

    One thing that leads me to believe it isn't fake, is the extra detail on the cab side window. On the retail ER Prime, there is only one side cab window, with a second rectangular part painted over.
    In this leak, there are 2 side cab windows.
    Also, the gray inner leg part (where the wheels attach) is the same dark gray/black as the rest of the leg, not lighter like it would have been if it was just a desaturation/color shift in Photoshop.

    I'm not for sure either, it might be one of the season 3 episodes?

    Well at least if we're doing 86-89 cast I'll be happy to complete my 86 cast. All I'm missing now is Arcee and Ultra Magnus and I think Wreck-gar too 86 crew.jpg

    He’s joined the choir invisible. He is an ex-Prime.
    If he dies, I call dibs on his stuff.

    I absolutely want this. I'm still (kinda) kicking myself for not grabbing the Sleep Mode MP04 when I had the chance.

    I was expecting another Nemesis Prime repaint, I never thought i would see this deco again. Hopefully this rumor is true.

    No, he was right before. In Japan, Optimus Prime/Convoy went from being dead at that point to Star Convoy. Then eventually went from Star Convoy to Nucleon Quest SuperConvoy at some unknown point in the future.

    Ginrai was the "Powermaster Prime", until the end of Masterforce when the Transtector gained sentience of it's own and used his name, then fought for some time until being killed by Liokaiser in Victory, then was reborn as Victory Leo.


    Anyway, I guess I'm the only one who thought, 1930's TV accurate Optimus Prime! ;)  (See, because he's grey scale for black and white TV's)

    I hate to admit it, but I would probably buy a dead coronation Starscream in that colorscheme. Either to use as an added seeker or because that was the high point of the movie for me as a kid.

    On a less directly related note, after the Legends comics, I do find myself far more open to a Shattered Glass Prime.

    We have too many optimus toys already. Boring. Lets get a warpath with lots of 5mm ports already.

    Hasbro out here selling corpses now. Key kids! All your heroes are dead and everything you loved will die, and decay until all the beautiful colour in the world is a depressing grey mess...

    Collect them all!
