Awesome, took em long enough to bring that sexy black beauty out on the market. =P~
Oh and it's a Decepticon, so it's not exactly the same as the original intent but still awesome!

Oh and the Clear FE Prime's nice too. >:oP

8-} Sorry if this seems stupid to ask but might these be sold as a set like "Sons of Cybertron" or individually? I would so buy the set and sell off the clear OP no problem! ;)^ :VEHI:

So, everybody complained that FE Optimus was substituted by RID Optimus, one of the reasons being the use of translucent plastic in RID's arms. As a result, HasTak has decided to bring back FE Optimus... with its whole freaking body made of translucent plastic?!?!

Man... two possibilities: either they are illogical or deaf :lol: 8)

So the Classics Optimus mold is not as unusable as previously thought and blows the SDCC one out of the water.

I'd still take a Universe 2008 Nemesis Prime, as he's a proper clone. The fad in Japan now seems to be making black Primes "Darksides", or the dark side of Optimus' character.

Both look nice, but I'm not sure if I want that United Black Prime... It just seems kind of pointless since there's already the KO version (which is way cheaper and seems just as nice) and the SDCC version which has been out for years. I guess I'm just disappointed because I really expected to see a black repaint of the FE Prime mold. The Translucent one is nice, but black is always better.

A fully translucent First Edition Prime and a Nemesis Prime release of a mold that is supposed to be lost forever...

I believe we've just been trolled by Has/Tak.

Well yeah, the idea is that it's supposed to be a BAD GUY clone. I don't see what you're getting at here calling this a FAD either, since it's been the idea since Scourge/Black Convoy. While I realize the black repaint of G1 prime exists, I hardly find it iconic. But to each their own I guess.

Didn't bite on this black prime before, probably won't now.
Wish they had still made the Blue Henkei Bumblebee :BANG_HEAD:

Whoever said anything about the molds being lost forever? You'll get the First Edition toys ... they just won't be in First Edition packaging when those molds come out at retail, kind of like how the First Edition Cliffjumper mold is being used for both Zombie versions, and the FE version of Megatron and the Starscream mold (as Skywarp) was used in the Arms Micron line. I'm sure they'll show up in some form or another in the Transformers Prime toy line at some point.

No, he means the Classics Voyager Prime mold, which was supposed to be lost forever due to mold degradation.

Read that again. I was referring to the Classics Optimus Prime mold not FE. I'm pretty certain Hasbro said the molds were broken.

That said, this looks exactly like the canceled Black Convoy from a while back, they may have just been sitting in storage as opposed to being fresh from the factory.

Edit: Didn't see your post there Dead Metal.

I misread that.

Comment still remains though ... whoever said anything about the Classics Prime mold having mold degradation? Wasn't it only used 6 times? (Classics, Ultra Magnus, SDCC, BotCon, Henkei, and transparent).

It was quite a while back. I'll never be able to find the news post where it was mentioned. But I remember this to be the case. That's why we ended up with this.

Same goes for this just being an old cancelled Scourge/Black Convoy repaint, there's no record of it on TFwiki but it definitely happened. I believe it was Wonderfest Black Convoy.

The mold started showing its age around SDCC Nemesis Prime and BotCon 2008, I read about alignment problems here and there with those two toys.

Sounds like theories, not facts. I had assumed that the "deluxe" version of Optimus Prime was used because it hadn't come out in Japan so Takara Tomy decided to use it in the "Sons of Cybertron" set and in the United line. They later released the deluxe Megatron in the United line as well so it seems only natural that the deluxe Optimus Prime was released for the same reasons that they decided to use the deluxe Megatron mold.

Don't have any problems with either of mine. This all sounds like fan assumptions that fans have said so many times that they consider it to be fact. Happens a lot in this fandom.
