    I thought so too, I believe the user who posted this said it was "Earthrise Dead Optimus." To me it looks way to clean to be a custom.

    That's without question a "dead" repaint of Optimus if there ever was one.

    I also did a little research into this post on Reddit. This user was the same user who leaked some pictures of Siege Bluestreak and Ratchet around 11 months ago. Those turned out legitimate so I'd say there is a good chance this is too.

    This has been doing the rounds. I’m not at liberty to share, but the head sculpt is very cool!

    When they repainted MP-01 into his dead grayscale colors, they called him “Sleep Mode Optimus”. I guess it’s supposed to be more marketable than “Dead Optimus Prime”?

    So if it's "dead optimus" (as in grayscale, not "nemesis-y" or "scourgy"), that supports 2 things for me:
    1. TF:TM is definitely a theme for next year
    2. That Siege Nemesis Prime I (just barely) missed out on still won't back off the stupid prices on eBay.

    Sweet. I still don't have regular Earthrise Optimus, but I would be more inclined to get this instead.

    Don’t go spreading information your not sure of.

    According to the hints from credible catz, it’s probably 2001 Rid Optimus.

    As boring as this would be if real, wonder if it means that Leader Rodimus will be coming sooner than later.
