Why the question mark in the title?

OH, hello Takara, here's more of my money :D

*sigh* I loved TF: Prime, but I'm regretting buying the huge-ass 'Beast Hunter Optimus' a little bit. Not worthy of the show character at all. Sure GO! is a bit on the 'cheap kids anime side' but the toys and character designs just seem to be appealing more. I'm excited for this new toy...I kinda bought 'Prime' Optimus for the sake of it. :sad:

Still, that said, when we see this design in toy form it could suck. Though maybe not as much as AoE Prime currently looks. What we really need is toys like this but a story more like TF: Prime. Or at least anime that takes TF a bit more seriously.
I am a fan of what I have seen of GO! so far though
:HEADHURTS:

I think you mean exclamation point.


According to google translate, the figure is due January 2014, more or less.

We can't see much, but what we can see looks all right.

Nope. When LOST Cybertronian posted it to the Front Page as news there was a question mark at the end of the title. Obviously it's gone now.

Say, that train alt-mode of Prime looks like a futuristic Hearts of Steel Optimus Prime with a Japanese astetic look.

Well that didn't take long! Just this morning we got our first glimpse of Takara Tomy's upcoming Transformers Go! G26 Opimus EX Prime from a promotional store display, but it was only a peek at his animation model. Now thanks to a user on TinyPic we have our first look at the actual figure! The version of Optimus Prime sports three modes: robot, bullet train, and dragon - plus he has the ability to combine with G01 Kenzan and G05 Gekisomaru. Check him out below!

Robot mode Optimus looks pretty cool. Can't tell with the dragon mode at the moment from that pic. The gestalt forms look bad unfortunately.

Credit where credit is due.

Is that the dragon mode bellow the train?

Looks rather kibbly. I'm not that interested at this time.

Of course it won't be perfect but if we compare it to Beasthunter Optimus.........

Oh? Why do you say that? This looks nothing like a Sentinel Prime.

@fenrir72, yes, that's apparently his dragon mode below the train mode.

I'll be honest, not what I expected, but not terrible either. Definitely WANT.

Eh, just sorta looks like him to me. The way the swords are held is especially evocative of him.

So all three combine? that must mean Prime suffers from high hips syndrome.

Not quite. Judging by what I can see, Prime has normal hips, as he only forms the middle and therefore has no need for the high hips.

He sort of reminds me of G1 Starsaber. The red upper torso and the white and blue "pants"

And they are getting less "alien insect like" with every release. Keep it going Tomy!

Animation wise, I wonder how they're going to shoehorn him back to the story. From truck to train?
