    Look, I'm as shocked as you are but Promobricks, a reliable Lego news site that often gets information early has posted that Lego will be releasing a buildable Optimus Prime set that will be fully transformable without disassembly, include a weapon, jetpack and an information plaque. It will reportedly cost 169.99 euro, consists of 1508 pieces, and release around May of this year.
    More details here:

    It'd be pretty amusing if it is the ROTB version and ends up looking better than the MPM version.
    Though, this is most likely the evergreen design or a very simplistic version ala K-reo.

    Sounds like it’s gonna be a ROTB Prime as well. Which is cool (probably used SS DOTM Prime cause it best represents what is coming with the figure).

    Transformable without disassembling? Take my money.

    Shit, this sounds awesome. First the Saturn V and Space Shuttle, then the Titanic, now this. I'm getting really tempted to get back into Lego, if only I had the space for large models like this. I do kinda hope it's either the regular G1 design or the 07 Bayverse one though, those are the most iconic Prime designs. But ROTB should at least be close enough to G1.

    It’ll be pretty G1 looking since ROTB Prime is basically BBM Prime with more silver and minor differences.
    But I could see a TF1-3 Prime happen at some point.

    edit: I translated (since I’m on my phone) a part of the text

    The fact that Hasbro's finally partnering up with Lego to make Transformers products after years of Hasbro doing their own Lego styled figures makes this both ironic and amusing but in a good way. XD If we are going to get ROTB figures from this line I'm hoping they'll make the Maximals and Terrorcons be part of the line.

    ROTB version (which is G1 Prime looking still)
    Either way I think it’s cool if it’s ROTB Prime or TF1-3 Prime

    Lego’s been getting real good at making mechs and robots. This could be real frigging cool.

    Is there anything actually stating it’ll be from ROTB? I think they may have just used a title and toy grabbed from Google. I’d figure it’s more likely to be the G1 version with the rocket pack from MTMTE.

    This sounds something out of a fever dream.

    Just reasonable conjecture on PromoBricks’ part. In terms of what they actually know:

    “Unfortunately, we can't tell you yet if the set will be more of a classic version of Optimus based on the animated series, or if it's based on the movies.”

    Just a reminder we don't know which version this is yet, they probably used the DotM Prime picture because he has a jetpack.

    I’m very curious to see who else is in the wave or will happen. I suspect Bumblebee, a Maximal (probably Primal) and Scourge.
    Yeah, they just suspect it will be a ROTB version since the movie originally came out in June this year.

    Well if he comes with a jetpack, I would assume it's the DOTM version. Unless he'll also have a jetpack in ROTB.

    Just FYI this is currently a single "Lego for adults" release, and it's unknown whether there will be more sets than this one.

    I'll be straight honest, the first word out of my mouth upon reading the original post was "bullshit."

    But if Promobricks is a reliable source, then...holy shitballs.

    It's just...does anyone still 'member Kre-O? Because this bomb makes that line a lot more ironic.

    Yeah, still reads like an early April Fools gag, but if anyone throws more proof that this is legit, they're more than welcome.
