    I love the shoulder pads and hands.

    How's the quality on past Wei Jiang releases?

    Now this is very interesting. I do like the improvements they've made.

    If they release one in Black like the Nemesis repaint then I'm done deal.

    :confused: 

    What the flippin eck is this supposed to be advertising?

    RotF Optimus Prime that turns in to AoE Evasion Mode Optimus Prime?

    To be honest I cant see it myself as this just looks like two grey painted figures cut in to the same image?

    Perhaps we need a little more clarity?;)

    What do you mean? That's definitely not the ROTF leader.

    I'm not certain this it gonna be released. It looks too much like the official toy.

    Edit: So it's a KO. That's quite an upgrade over the original mold.

    It's a modified Evasion Prime with new parts that make it more screen accurate.

    Compared to the original Evasion Prime mold, they've made a pair of wheels migrate from his ankles up to his thighs (since Movie Prime has four tires on his thighs and two on his ankles, which Evasion Prime reversed due to the way the toy was engineered); new folding rear fenders to emulate the old single wheel well at the ankle; a new rear cab cover and smokestacks that double as enlarged shoulderpads (since Evasion Prime's shoulderpads were faked and under-sized) and also the V-shaped armor arrangement on his back; the robot toes now rotate around to fold flatter against the truck bed; he's got new articulated hands; the gas tanks are now removable and transform into his triple-barrelled rifle; his chest grille opens up to reveal his spark chamber; and lastly he has new folding side-view mirrors in truck mode.

    Depending on the size and such I could be very interested.

    You could be right there bud, hehe! He just looked a little too bulky to be EM Op!
    So, we already have a KO of EM Op available, with die cast metal to boot, so could we assume this is their upscaled version taking him to Leader size, perhaps also with a little die cast thrown in?
    Interesting.:)

    I didn't notice that Wei Jiang is the one that made the oversized aoe figures, with die-cast metal too.... I know their quality is pretty good, so probably this will be an oversized evasion op, with die-cast metal and new parts, as Archon just said :)

    I'm very interested to see if this release pans out. Evasion Optimus was one of my favourite Prime toys in quite awhile, and the modifications they've made here for the sake of accuracy look excellent.

    I want it. This fixes the already few problems I had with the original, Like the open back of the truck.

    Wei Jiang puts out some quality stuff, they did the oversized Nottlebots too. The company guys are very friendly too, I met them last year at the China Toy Expo. They want to move to original designs at some point, but this is where the money is in China for them now.

    Oh wow, that is amazing. I'd definitely like to own a piece of that since it pretty much covers the few flaws with Evasion Prime.
