Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted in-package images of Takara Tomy's upcoming Cybertron Satellite Exclusive Dark Guard Optimus Prime. The figure is a black and gold redeco of the popular Transformers Prime First Edition Voyager Optimus Prime mold. Check out the images mirrored below.

To save his comrades who are infected with Dark Energon, Optimus Prime had his body covered with Energon Defense Coating. This black coating is an alloy Ratchet created by analyzing and converting MECH's equipment, and is capable of shielding Transformers from Dark Energon or any biological weapons such as a virus. Optimus' mobility is reduced due to the added weight, but this is the only form he can guard himself from Dark Energon.

Nice repaint, for those who dont mind paying the expected and obvious outrageous price.

The things IMO that kept this fig from being absolutely perfect is the paint used for the chest/windows and the blue for the blade...other than that it's a win and I will possess. :VEHI:

This thing makes a better Nemesis Prime than Takara's Nemesis Prime.

Now this definetely looks like an awesome repaint! Reminds me a bit of Tommy from Dino Thunder

But the question is, how many versions of FE OP's did we get? Here they are:

1- Takara First Edition

Image

2- Hasbro First Edition

Image

3- Takara Convention Exclusive

Image

4- This

I am sure that down the line, I will regret not getting this. The color scheme looks great, the background to the character is very well thought out, but I just cannot get past the packaging.

But all is good if/when they make a "Dark Energon" version of Arcee (preferably an Arms Micron version, that is). :PRAY:
