    From Weibo. I felt like the truck mode was looking a little bare so I really like how adding Autobot symbols fills up the side of the truck. Any one have some good suggestions for legends sized Shattered Glass symbols?

    At first I thought it was a reference to the SEGA Mega Drive Strider. However, it’s not the box art, but supplemental artwork from Capcom that kinda resembles this. They do love their retro games, it’s a very familiar nod that I just haven’t remembered yet.

    Oh wow, that looks incredible! My brain didn't keep up for a second and thought that was the actual paint job, then I realised of course it isn't and now I've disappointed myself.

    Ah! Looks like it’s an old video game called Genpei Tōma Den. Never heard of it!

    Sounds like the toy version will have a brand new head design.

    Am I so weak that I'm going to buy every variant along with Magic Square's?

    Yup. I'll just say I'm fasting. With Christmas food/treats coming I'll likely even out without gaining a pound.

    Perhaps I’m being too optimistic, but maybe this means new parts/accessories? Even throwing in the jet pack from SG would be nice.

    I'll be patient for your picture OP.
    Sounds like it'll be a nice one.

    The more retro painting scheme makes me think darker blue legs and silver/chrome thighs.

    Hell yeah! I think we all expected them to do a G1 toy version, but confirmation has me feeling good. Gimme gimme!

    From that picture everything still look the same to me, hopefully there will be sth surprised. Showz also raised the price of this optimus to level with UM, that might be a hint for some improvement.

    And it's coming!!! I really hope that those repaints will not come with the trailers, just to save me a little bit as I really like EX and death version and I can't afford $80-$100 for each of them.

    Edit: Please tell me that means Jetfire is coming!!! I've never seen Newage are so active with replying comments like this!

    I hope the Ex version comes with the trailer.
    Doesn't make much sense for it to come without the trailer.
    Death version doesn't need it of course.
