    Well it definitely transforms as evidenced by that video. it looks like the robot mode was the priority. That is fine by me.

    Just noticed from the teaser video that there appears to be a titan master port on the top of the cab. Now I just need confirmation as to whether this is indeed meant to replace the cab on PMOP and can combine with the trailer. Seems likely but I want to see it.

    So seems to be a stand alone figure called Giga Raiden. Chest doors open to reveal a Matrix!

    Has anyone asked if this actually forms a replacement cab for the CW UM and TR PM Optimus/Super Ginrai mold yet? Cause I'm frustrated that there isn't any confirmation on whatever this mold is meant to be a replacement cab or not yet.

    I think so far its all speculation, but that grill almost looks like it could take a power master.

    Still no hard confirmation that PE's kit can fit Magnus' head in the cab, but this looks like there's no space for it at all.

    I noticed that there doesn't seem to be a port in vehicle mode for it to attach to either Ultra Magnus or PMOP's trailer. So is this indeed not intended to be an add on for either leader class figure? Of course it's never been advertised as being such, but we haven't gotten much information on this figure either.

    At this point I'm more interested in those little troop guys and that transport than this Optimus anyway. Is there a dedicated thread for those?

    Edit: Never mind. Found it. X2 Toys AS001 Reserved Soldier

    That's about 5 3/4" so... Deluxe-ish?
