    He has panel lines and pin holes all over him lifted straight from V3 Prime. Even the notches under his chest windows are a detail picked out from the figure.

    A fast google translation indicaters the artist is Nobuyoshi Ueda, who used to draw Convoy's packaging art.

    Wow, that looks pretty cool!
    I heard about these a few years back, but I was too yong for them, and didn't really know what they where... :cry 

    I might have to get this, but in the meantime, does anyone maybe have some olders issues that they don't care about anymore?

    I know it's apparently PotP based... but am I tripping or does that Optimus look suspiciously like v3 MP Prime, art style and the weapon he's holding notwithstanding of course? Look at the panel line locations, the feet, the gas tank shape and size, etc. It's definitely not consistent with the PotP Prime...

    Edited:
    ... I see I wasn't the only one who noticed then lol.

    I'd preorder just for the cover alone, but is there some way of knowing what it'll show inside?

    I didn't really get into POTP, but I'd love a giant poster of that artwork; it looks fantastic!

    @Black Convoy, could you update the news post? The Optimus in the artwork is actually based on the new Masterpiece figure, not the POTP leader class toy. :)

    I mean, it is holding a POTP Pretender in weapon mode, and I'm fairly sure the MP doesn't have 5mm ports in its hands

    It is the MP though. All the panel lines and screwholes are there. Even the two indentations under the windshield are there. If you look at the two side by side, you can clearly tell :)
