Is this thing legit?

Motto: "There must be an easier way."
Weapon: Fusion Cannon
So I was browsing through eBay, looking for a Nemesis Prime, when I stumble upon this little number.
Image
The seller claims that it's "100% Authentic", but it doesn't appear on TFWiki.

So, my question is, is this an actual 'former, or another cheap knockoff?
Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

Thank you.

It's not on TFU.info because it hasn't been released yet. On TFWiki, try looking under Motormaster, the guy he's intended to be. The "Motormaster" name can't be trademarked by Hasbro, this is his current replacement name.

You just answered your own question. Just "Motormaster" is a no go, but "The Motor Master", with two added spaces, is perfectly fine, according to trademark law.

Correct. My question wasn't whether "The Motormaster" was right, it was why did they not use that instead of "Motorbreath."

It sounds too "flashy", like a Marvel hero or villain. ;)

No worries, haha. This is just one of the formerly Asia-exlusive figures. There are some deluxes (Wheelie, Springer, etc.) and a few voyagers as well.

Sources indicate he'll be released twice: stand-alone at Toys 'R Us, and as part of a Walmart gift set with Legends Thundercracker, and repaints of RtS Laser Prime and Special Ops Jazz.

No special box sets for them, just regular release.

Oh, and about that Box set with redecos of RTS Jazz and RTS G2 Prime (and Legends Thundercracker and Motormaster), Jazz has what looks like a G2-inspired deco (though not identical) and Optimus is decoed in the G2 "Combat Hero" deco, a previously unreleased color scheme that was intended for a redeco the original G2 Hero Optimus. :) It's kind of a shame I already have both deluxe molds or I'd be very interested in this.

Just google "asia gdo transformers".

I think there's thundercracker, hoist and bluestreak for ledgends. Wheelie, springger, swerve, cliffjumper for deluxe. Hot spot, megatron, powerdive for voyager. Starscream and ironhide for leader. Brawl, lazerbeak, sandstorm, breakdown for scouts.

Yep, and BigBadToyStore has the set as well, though it's $10 more. The other online retailers should have the set for preorder too.
