Does Hasbro have plans to release a new updated G1 Optimus Prime mold in the Generations line? It seems possible based on a piece of art from the latest issue of Toy Hobby Retailer magazine. The Australian fansite Ozformers has shared an image from the magazine's Hasbro 90 years collage that features a redesigned G1 Optimus Prime holding what appears to be a Targetmaster type weapon with a Generations label. The weapon has a blue cab and windshield section, so it definitely transformers into something. Take it with the normal grain of salt, we should know more about the 2013 Generations lineup after next month's Toy Fair. Check out the images mirrored below.

His gun looks like it turns into a small blue semi truck.

Doesn't look anything like G1 to me. Bayformer? Yes. Transformers Prime? Yes. G1? No.

Whats that? The head? Nah, I don't count 5% of its anatomy as making it G1. Not trying to be trollish with my observation, just hugely disappointed.

It's a TF Prime body with a G1 head.

If anything it appears based on the IDW redesign:

If this is the size of TW Hegemon, I would be extremely interested.

I'm not familiar with the IDW comics. If it has some g1 nuances I think this would be really a cool toy, however it seems IDW prime doesn't have smokestacks on his arms like G1, which is kind of a bummer for me?

It looks like the design of Optimus from the current ongoing IDW comics. I wouldn't mind having a figure of that design, I rather like it. Now just give us a figure of that series' design of Megatron to go with it. It IS an awesome Megatron.

It looks like the prime from classics line that came in a two box with the megaton tank. That tiny prime that has a knob on the back for his spinning action.

Yeah. It's got those distinctive tapered arms and the split windshield of Prime prime. Does it mean a new mold is planned though? Or could it be a GDO style new-head/repaint job?

....

Actually, now that you mention it.... it's just the IDW one. :-(

Look at the gun. The back part looks like the gun from that line, just a little more exaggerated

If this is Voyager sized, count me in. But if it's deluxe or(God forbid) that one from the two pack with Megs, I'll pass.

IDW inspired Optimus with a ROLLER MINICON? :michaelbay: Hasbro, DO IT!

Something tells me that this guy won't have a trailer, and roller is included as a substitute, a little like Hasbros MP Rodimus, giving us OffShoot instead of the trailer. Better be a figure though...

I'm sure it'll be a deluxe or voyager, so there's no "instead of a trailer," since there wouldn't have been a trailer with it to begin with. If you had said "Targetmaster Minicon Roller instead of a regular gun or kibble-gun," you'd have been totally right though! :grin:

I'm gonna stick to my original assumption that its that tiny classic prime with the megaton. I think I have it laying somewhere on the floor, next to to junk transformers pile. That's how poor that mode is. Too small to display it anywhere
