RTS Legends G1 Optimus Prime trailer?

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
Images of what seems to be a 3rd party trailer for the Reveal the Shield Legends Class G1 Optimus Prime figure have shown up on ACToys. Similar to the previously reported G2 Optimus Prime trailer, nobody knows for sure if this is an actual 3rd party product. And to be quite frank it looks more like a kit-bash using Lego and styrene than a mass-produced toy. But this might just be a mock-up and would later be produced out of original parts, or it's just a nice little kit-bash and we've been reporting so many 3rd party products lately that whenever someone posts a toy that's not made by Hasbro or TakaraTomy we assume it's a 3rd party toy? Only time will tell.
We have mirrored a few of the images, for the rest just click here.

Roller appears to be made of Lego bricks. Might be easy enough to duplicate.

Those aren't LEGO pieces, perhaps a clone brand like Megabloks...

Smacks of the old school construction Armada Transformers to me.

Custom or not, it still looks better than the DotM toyline so far. This guy did a pretty decent job considering the scale he was working on.

I had no plans of purchasing the G1 Legends Prime, but if this actually gets made I will have no choice but to get both.

It would have killed the Legends toy development budget...

If this trailer is produced I would buy it, but I agree with others I think this is just a custom. :sad:

everybody quit buying third party trailer when the trailer use to be standard when buying Optimus Prime. They r screwing us over now. Demand that the trailer be included. I have been demanding Hasbro since they excluded the trailer almost 5 years ago.
