Seibertron.com member El Duque has posted some new information that suggests another Transformers Classics 1.0 figure may be getting an upgrade.

Voyager Optimus Prime seems to be getting the custom treatment by the teaser pics below:

Looks like the trailor is sitting too far back, it needs to be moved up to just behind the back of the cab. Right now it doesn't look good...

It might be a bit far back, but at least it gives the illusion of it being able to turn (with it's square peg, it's doubtful to me whether it can really do this).

It looks like it's just a battlestation. It'd be cooler if it was Powermaster Prime or something, but a battlestation is okay, I guess. Is there any other examples of the work these guys do?

I agree it looks too far back, may look better with the wind deflector on. It should not be too hard to make the truck articulated, simply build a pivot into the socket which attaches to the rectangular peg. I will withhold judgement until I see the finished version, and would like to see Fanproject's one to compare.

Fansproject will probably just make it "Powered Convoy" based on the CC mold if they do make one. I think they had one the last TFCon. The CC mold is amazing, but ... I don't nessasarily need two of them ...

Not necessarily:

(I expect to maybe see a Powered Convoy version of the CC armor as well, but I'm not sure that's all they have up their sleeve.)

As far as the BestToys version, , I'm withholding judgement until I see actual pics. The silhouette is looking pretty weird here, the angls look wrong.

This is pretty cool i'd love to have a trailer or him, ten he wont have to be jealous at Ultra Magnus anymore. What i don't like is that the trailer seems to be on the very tip of the feet of Prime. Looks weird, hope it fits on better in the final product stage. Also it looks to be angled at the top and front, i'd rather have it be boxy like the G1 trailer with G1 deco and such and the ability to transport roller (included i hope) and open up to form a base/repair bay.

What would be nice also is if they made a second Powermaster trailer, where the trailer converts to a base or legs and arms to make classic Prime into Powermaster Prime. That would kick ass.
