    I searched a bit before posting this but did not find a thread dedicated to it. However, if this has been discussed or is under another name, then my bad. Still I felt this was worthy of noting.

    This is the RZB01 "Freedom Pillar" (uncertain of the actual translation) Voyager Optimus Prime. I don't know the name of the company but this is purported to be a highly G1 accurate, highly articulated, high plastic quality, G1 styled Optimus Prime to fit your CHUG collection. It even allegedly has a Matrix of leadership within its chest.

    Somethings to note are the included Energon Axe, Ion Blaster, ab crunch, lack of kibble and what appears to be several ports to plug in weapons. They don't appear to be 5mm ports anywhere and they seem quite specific where they peg in, notably on the Ion Blaster itself. Let me know what you guys think.

    Huh. I think it's a cute looking figure, especially with how articulated it is, but I don't necessarily know that there are a ton of collections with a this-shaped hole. It's so visually different from the vast majority of CHUG figures that I think it'd stick out like a sore thumb, especially with us having gotten a pretty good Optimus figure very recently. Still, I hope people get an opportunity to get their hands on this.

    Also, that last pic with Elita-1 looks a bit suspect, to say the least.

    The abs/ crotch / hips are interesting. I’m not interested in cartoon accuracy at all, but this could be a fun desk bot, though I may be more interested in the new revoltech for that kind of purpose

    whoa, it transforms? neat. looks like a fun little novelty. don't know that i'd take it over earthrise, but for sheer articulation-to-size ratio while also having a semi (lol) passable truck mode, it's pretty cool.

    Cute. I'd buy it for a deskbot/fiddlebot, depending on price.

    [USD 44.32] RzB01 (Rui Bao) high movable V-level animation Optimus OP G1 minimalist style 18 cm high pillars - Wholesale from China online shopping | Buy asian products online from the best shoping agent - ChinaHao.com
    I found a link for buying one of these, but the shipping is killer on here. Hopefully we can figure out more about this company/where to buy this thing. I think it's the necessary first step in making a toon accurate CHUG Prime, and I think it does an alright job at that. I applaud it for trying. That, and the fact it comes in a cup or jar makes this thing kind of a novelty in my mind, and I want to see more Cupformers in the future.

    I just wished that the chest wasn't so flat.

    I'll buy this if someone carries this, or if it pops up on Ebay.

    I halfway expected this to be another ko of that Bumblebee movie voyager Prime.

    Looks neat, the cartoony look doesnt bug me at this size, though it would be more of a standalone thing.

    I don't plan to buy one, but if I ever do, he needs 5mm ports and a proper Generations Ion Blaster and other staple Optimus Prime accessories to sort him out some. I do dig the articulation more than anything else. Just noticed that you can plug in and plug out his calf canister things. In the image where he's holding up Elita-1, you can see it attached to his forearm. How nuts is this toy? Like Mr. Potato Head somehow.

    I'd buy that as a quirky novelty - it looks like a reasonable fiddle-former.

    This is....interesting. And a bit strange! The scale seems to be somewhere between CHUG and MP? I like the very clean, toon-style aesthetic, but for that it would work better with a matte finish IMO. Who's the company making this?
