We get a look at Year of the Snake Platinum Edition Optimus Prime in and out of its premium box thanks to AC Toys. We also get to see the premium box for Omega Supreme as posted by Planet Iacon.

As you know by now, Optimus Prime is a G1 repaint of the Energon leader while his drone limbs recieve some nice paint as well. Omega Supreme is retooled from his Energon incarnation with G1 features including claw and head.

Hasbro revealed images of these guys at NYCC right here in America. Why would they do that if they're not releasing them here?

Is that the infamous "Fatimus Prime"? No wonder they refused to show him in bot mode.

The artwork's awesome, though.

Why is Omega's penis pointing at me?

Not bad, aside from the emblem... It's cool, but it looks out of place on the figure itself. I'm fine with the regular Fatimus I already have.

It's happy to see you.


It likes what it sees.


He does that to everyone.


Because if it was pointing out the other side then Cybertronians have some VERY strange anatomy.


Rocket-mode.

This has got to be one of the worst representations of Optimus Prime I have ever seen, really!

A barrel chested 'bot with a flip back head! WTF are you doing Takara? :roll:

He combines with his four drones, Voltron-style, so his proportions are more geared towards Super Mode than anything else.

I do want both, but I'll be replacing Prime's trailer with the standard Energon one.

and FYI It's Hasbro Asia. ;)

Well, the final result will look something like this:

So I guess the first robot mode is passable.

I already have Year of the Dragon Prime. I don't care much for Omega Supreme, but I will probably pick up this Prime.

When will it be released exactly?

Will there be figures for the other 10 signs of the Chinese Zodiac?

If so, will they be Primes, and more specifically, Primes who have super modes?

Surprised these are not up on the Transformers fansite yet, despite being put out before the Energon Omega Supreme repaint? Perhaps there in another thread? ;) ;) ;)

I'll admit the new headsculpt is a bit BRILLIANT, but the rest of him is an Energon mold. :evil:

New headsculpt? Isn't that just the 2.0 version we've already had 8 years ago?

Holy crap, Energon was 8 years ago!

Nope, the original Energon mold was a Headmaster, remember?

I want that OS, never had the original back in the '80s when I was a kid. He would look cool in my collection, might even put DOTM BB that has the "fly omega supreme" logo next to him. DOTM Ark, DOTM Leader BB accessory, DOTM Starscream spaceship all would look pretty neat displayed with him as well as Primus. Hopefully Amazon gets and does that crazy price drop like Jetwing OP.

In any case, Omega's the one with the new head. Prime's head is the later variant with the closed mouthplate.

Seems not a lot of peple want Prime. Oh well, more for me!:twisted:

and as one other said already, all of him is the energon mold.

Also, Energon Prime a headmaster? No, that was Omega Supreme.

I am SO glad that it's the mouthplated version.

I would have preferred if the YOTS logo was a bit more discreet, say on his right shoulder as opposed to his sigil. Still, very tempted to add to my PoL

Apologies, I misspoke. I said "headsculpt" when I meant to say "head DECO". #-o

Hang on, now I'm confused. That pic depicts Optimus having a mouth. So which mold is it, mouthplate or mouth? :???:

The reason that image has a mouth (and flat insides of the chest windows) is because its a stock photo.

The final product is the mouthplated version with the segmented chest window insides.

That being the case, this may just be worth selling my Thunder Megazord for.
