    Yeah, I couldn't find the original thread. But this is confirmation of specifics, and I think all the info in the post is new.

    And hysterically I\'ll possibly buy it for my cousin\'s kid. Much like I did with the KO of the Optimus for Christmas.

    @Black Convoy, BrickClicker made an error - the release date in July 1st, per his edit. So everything is as we knew before.

    Buddy we barely get any bayverse in Studio Series, the line custom made for Bayverse. Good luck getting anything besides that

    That's odd. Optimus Prime was a roll out success. If any gonna tank, it'll be Megatron.

    I'll see myself out...

    A Bayverse Optimus Prime would be a huge set (the detail and engineering would put it above $600 easily) and would be priced out of a lot of potential buyers' hands. Lego is trying to keep them smaller and intermediate range for difficulty to appeal to a broader audience. I myself would love a large 4000+ piece Transformer Lego set but I understand why Lego is doing what they are doing.

    What would have made you think that besides "I see it on shelves sometimes?"

    That's neat. Smaller and more affordable while still working with the Optimus that many people would have already picked up. So kids can get this if the price was a barrier before.

    I doubt with Lego's strict guidelines for sets we would even get a Bayverse figure. Plus, the last time another building block company even attempted to try and make a buildable transformer somewhat similar to the Bay designs, we got the Kreo take-apart-to-transform line. G1 is the easiest to do, since less steps are required, and the figure won't break apart when you transform it.

    Too bad for you. Optimus was quite a hit, especially with Lego fans who may not be the biggest TF fans but recognize at least Optimus Prime due to popular culture associations. 'Bee will be popular by sheer fact alone that Lego Volkswagens are popular among the Lego fandom.
