The Space-Bridge facebook page has been quietly sharing a multitude of rare prototype images over the past few months. Today never seen before prototype images of G2 Laser Optimus Prime were posted. As you can see in the images we've mirrored below for those without facebook access the prototype trailer included many features that never made it into the production figure including Roller! For comparative purposes the Seibertron.com gallery of G2 Laser Optimus Prime can be found by clicking here. As previously mentioned The Space-Bridge has several more rare prototype images available, which include G1 Octane, G1 Insecticons, and more. Click here to visit The Space-Bridge facebook page.

The tower has ROTORS!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

And two Dreadwing-esgue Gatling-missile-launchers?!?!?!?!?!

Holy-green-or-red-Slag, they really did try to incorporate EVERY damn G2 gimmick into Laser OP!
(Including Roller is sorta' half of "Auto-Roller", right?)

I don't know if this makes me feel better or worse about passing the actual toy up back in '95.

I'm not sure if this is a dumb question or not, but is this a recent photo gallery or is this from the 90's?

Now all he needs is to have his colors change in water, his engine become his gun, a radar assembly that becomes another gun, at least one "pressure-launch" style missile, Roller be 1:64-scale, an autotransform rolling gimmick for Roller (even if it's only minimal), a sparkling gimmick, a water-squirking gimmick, and a pull-back motor gimmick, to be the ultimate combination of G2 gimmicks. :michaelbay: :KREMZEEK: :michaelbay:

I did pick up Laser Optimus back in the day, and have manged to keep him mostly intact (though I believe there may be a missile or two missing). This has always been one of my favorite versions of Optimus and on of my favorite TF molds in general, though I would love to see one with a more traditional G1 paint job.

This prototype looks incredible. As much of a fan of Laser Optimus as I am, the final product pales in comparison to what it could have, and should have, been.

Look awfully like a 3rd party produckt. Did the all-mighty El Duque missed the appropriate forum?

Anyway, as a proud owner of a 100% complete original, I dont feel the need to own this. The original is more posable than a master yoga monk! Plus that base mode is ridiculously interactive. What more do you need?

Yeah, this does look too good to be a Hasbro product (unless this is Takara), I'm a little skeptical, but unlike you, I do not have the original, so oh yeah....i want this!

Showoff. I-)

Regarding its status as a prototype, it's not uncommon for prototype designs to be extremely simplified as the development progresses no matter how good it looks, or even be redesigned from the ground up. Look up the Armada Hot Shot prototype to see what I mean. And if it's a 3rd Party prototype, try to explain the Laser Optimus Prime prototype that appears as well which looks extremely close to the final toy.

To be fair, he lacks any and ll of Laser OP's electronics, and I didn't get him until BotCon 2010 since I kept passing on Scourge back in the day. :oops:


Also, The Spacebridge posted four more pics, this time of the packaging:

Oh man. Rotor Force gimmick too? Wish they'd kept that, rotor force is entirely underrated.

I must admit, my curiosity is picked. I'll have to wait for the final product andto know when and where the thing will be sold and for how much.

It's a prototype of a figure released in 1995 during Generation 2. It's not new at all, just a historical curiousity.

Wait. You mean it.s the actal prototype of the G2 OP?.
All right, I think I'm covered.

For those of you who dont have a G2 Laser OP with trailer, go buy it now. The original is easely found on Ebay at a reasonable price.

Indeed, even though the final product was apparently neutered, it's a pretty damn good figure; most likely the best of the G2 line.
