RTS G2 Optimus Prime upgrade set on the horizon?

Postby Dead Metal » Mon Jan 17, 2011 7:54 am

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
There has been much talk of Reveal the Shield G2 Optimus Prime, which should be available soon, talk of its...
[list=]
[*]Incredible amount of articulation
[*]Good detail
[*]Its engineering
[*]The fact that it has a chest you can open to reveal a (non-removable) Matrix
[/list]

However there have been complaints;

[list=]
[*]Horrible colour scheme
[*]Not enough paint apps
[*]Horrible looking head
[*]Horrible looking hands
[*]Horrible feet
[*]No trailer
[*]No gun
[*]Flames (shall they burn in hell)
[/list]


Do you want this toy but feel like a few of the above mentioned flaws should be corrected then, well you might have your wish come true!
A post over at HK-TF.com's forum gives us a look at what might be an upcoming 3rd party product meant for "completing" G2 Optimus Prime. It's currently unknown which company will be producing this set
Or this is simply a fan-made render, so take this as you will.
For simplicity's sake we'll just pretend that this is in fact an upcoming product. What we can tell from the images the set comes with;
[list=]
[*]A new sword
[*]New feet
[*]New Head
[*]Possibly new hands (the position of them in the images makes it hard to tell if they are new or if it's just an optical illusion)
[*]Oh and a trailer which can turn into a battle station and combine with Optimus Prime
[/list]

The trailer looks pretty close to that of the original G2 Laser Optimus Prime figure, but the silhouettes of both modes do reveal a few differences.

We have mirrored all images, however you can click here and see the original post over at HK-TF.com.

Hmm, possibly interesting, if a little unnecessary. I'd personally wait until an RiD Scourge repaint.

I am all for adding a trailer to Optimus Prime toys! :)

Now lets hope it doesn't cost $100+ to do so.

I think Hasbro will release the repaint as Nemesis Prime since we have the Scourge name being used already.

Nice looking upgrade but the super mode just doesn’t work for me. Kind of looks more like a battle suit…. also did anybody see that OP bot’s eyes are staring right out of super mode’s chest behind the orange panel.

it's supposed to do that. Think of it more like an exo-suit.

Sounds quite interesting... I doubt that I'll be getting it, since like most 3rd party products, it'll probably be too expensive, but it does look like it could be pretty cool.

I was more than willing to live with some of the problems presented by G2 Optimus given how well articulated he seemed to be as well as having a sword...

then we're presented with the possibility of having a bigger one... among other things...

My wallet weeps. :BANG_HEAD:

Looks cool, but it will probably be too expensive. I like G2 Optimus as he is. Bay flames and all.

No no no no and again...NO! #-o :BANG_HEAD:

It's just a simple deluxe class figure. Keep the fixes simple and stop adding crap that's going to jack it up out of someones price range.
Good grief, if I wanted to be teased and then horribly disappointed I'd hook back up with my ex-girlfriend...

I had hoped that Fansproject would design a trailer for this.

Hopefully whoever is behind this is of similar quality. I can't tell from just the silhouette whether or not I like it. Looks top heavy.

I love this, however I'm probably never going to use the combined mode since the original didn't have that.

I may have to get 2 Primes now, one to use as is and one for this upgrade.

Funny, a few years ago, we were screaming for a trailer for classics Prime/Convoy. Now I don't have enough shelf space for trailers and we have two potential trailer upgrades for lesser figures posted as news on the same day.

Looks interesting but my trailer days are behind me now that I have the Protector armor.

Wow, this upgrade looks awesome, though i don't have many problems with the actuall RTS G2 Prime I'm still going to buy him... And most likely this upgrade set once I see released pictures.

This is very interesting. Hopefully more pictures will follow soon because i get rather tired of silhouettes. I hope the new features do not make him fall out of proportion or lose articulation. I am also very excited about the trailer and the combined mode looks interesting. Is that a monitor on the front of him?

Hasbro should never try to get rid of third party organizations. I think together, they help each other out incredibly. For many people including myself, if this set looks good, it will be the soul reason I buy Hasbro's G2 Prime. As is the IDW head iGear is putting out for Kup.
