Did not see that coming.

Could this be the "Year of the Horse" figure? If so, the axe might be a new accessory.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

The description of the YotH figure didn't it say that the Matrix was removable. All it said was that it was inside his chest.

No it says it fits in his chest.

And Again, this is a Prime without a trailer, that converts into a battle station with med bay that can hold all his accessories.

Does his static Matrix somehow not stay fit within his chest?

As with Cybertron OP, the back end of their vehicle modes that detach from the cabs are considered by Hasbro to be their trailers, even if it's not in the most conventional sense. Even Animated Optimus Prime's cartoon-only back end of his fire truck mode is officially called his "trailer".

As for this Prime's trailer, it does so convert into a battle station that holds all of his accessories ()it's literally comprised of every one of his accessories).

And one of its most significant appearances in the cartoon was it being used as a med bay to heal Optimus's wounds that he sustained from his own brother.

What Matrix? And fit inside chest implies that it's removable, which leaves Cybertron, MPs, G1, and THS Primes.

Didn't know that about battle station mode and med bay, I've had that toy for years now and never knew it could do that.

The reissue I did not expect.

I can't help but feel that this somehow ties into that MP poll Takara has been putting out.

Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has put up a preliminary Preorder for a 2014 reissue of C-001 Super Fire Convoy AKA in the U.S. Robots In Disguise Optimus Prime. Could a God Magnus AKA Ultra Magnus reissue be far behind? The image is most likely a place holder.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
And that would explain the RiD Ultra Magnus reissue rumor.

btw I'm getting more and more the feeling the descriptions are just lifted from other items called "Optimus Prime" out of sheer ignorance on Hasbro's part. That would render them moot, plus we'd have to take everything with a big grain of salt now. >:oP
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

So, I suppose this means that they have no plans of taking RiD Optimus' results in the Masterpiece poll into account..

I wanted Masterpiece RiD Prime the most...
Here is what I'm looking for:

Scout:
Windcharger (RTS), Dune Runner (HFTD), Beachcomber (ROTF), Brakedown (ROTF), Oil Pan (ROTF), Breacher (HFTD), Crankstart (HFTD), Sky Stalker (ROTF)

Deluxe:
Fallback (RTS), Mindstorm (RTS), Vehicon (FE), Cliffjumper (FE), Ratchet (B.H.), Dreadwing (B.H.), Arcee (B.H.), Knock Out (B.H.), Shadow Strike Bumblebee (B.H.), Prowl (B.H.)

Voyager:
Mindwipe (ROTF), Highbrow (HFTD), Strafe (RTS), Deep Dive (RTS)
