    Update: HQ stock images and product information thanks to Dengeki Hobby. Optimus will include a silver tensegrity base, while the Autobot and Decepticon versions would be sold separately.

    • Anti-Gravity Pedestal Base (silver) & Optimus Prime Set – 7480 Yen/$67.16. Scheduled for March 2022, pre-orders available since October 7th.
    • Anti-Gravity Pedestal Base Autobot/Decepticon Version – 1980 Yen/$17.78 each. Scheduled for March 2022, pre-orders available since October 7

    Seemingly uses the WFC Magnus inner bot tooling and they’re supposed to show it off on the 7th

    can’t vouch for its legitimacy though, take it with a grain of salt

    A toy-accurate G1 Optimus with yellow eyes perhaps?

    I can't see other reason to use the boxy inner Magnus bot honestly

    Cool that they got around doing the idea of repainting the Magnus cab into Optimus Prime someday. Part of me wishes that they somehow also retooled the trailer to combine with him to do an armored Optimus that homages the Powermaster design or heck something new entirely.

    Found this online. Original post of it was deleted(?) Seems like a retool of the Magnus inner bot. Comes with some sort of double layer stand

    the stand appears to be a version of one of those anti-gravity hanging sculptures.

    Reposting from the speculation thread, I guess that is why it's called an "unprecedented base"

    I wonder if it's going to be a one off? I could see other little retools getting released with their own stands

    If this is real, big shame about the hands not being able to fold away inside the arms, the blue fists are gonna look real ugly in truck mode just hanging out even more so than Magnus since they're a different color to the rest of the body.

    The fandom would like a Delta Magnus with the mold of Siege or Kingdom / ER Ultra Magnus, and Takara / Hasbro made a new OP with that mold... Why?

    Huh... the Kingdom Magnus cab portion isn't great on it's own to begin with so this just seems like Takara doing something because "why not?". :lol 

    Agreed. I wouldn't buy it since I never cared for Energon Prime, but those chonky proportions would work so well for that design.
