Fellow fan and Seibertron board member, duoduotea, has posted his in hand gallery of the TRU Japan exclusive "Rusty" Optimus Prime, as seen during the farm attack at the beginning of Age Of Extinction. Not only does this version of the Evasion Mode Optimus sport a new deco, he also has a remolded head that features Optimus with his trademark battle mask in place so he's ready to charge into battle!

We've mirrored some of the images below, but you can see the full gallery at this link: Here.

Best Movie accurate Evasion Prime so far.
It doesn't have the black legs and there's a lot of different colours.
Hopefully I'll be able to get this version of him.

Might be my monitor but that looks less like rust and more like the remains of lots of road kill.

Thought this would've looked better than these pix show.. the red spots on hips etc look comical.. which is a pity

I have the standard hasbro version and would've liked he came with a faceplate. It lacks paint detailing especially round the legs but he is a great version of prime and might serve as my generations prime for now

thoroughly recommended toy tho

how nice it must be for japanese fans.. not only do they get the most accurate version thus far, but they also don't need to buy it in a set with two other non aoe toys.. thanks hasbro.. there's nothing i love more than paying an exclusive price for a mold with a paint job that it should've had in the first place, in a set that includes a repaint of a generations figure for a character that wasn'tin the movie, and a repaint of a mediocre figure from the previous movie.. HOW WONDERFUL.

i guess hasbro is just trying to turn people off from buying their products.

wouldn't it have just been easier to throw this version of the mold into the main line and release it world wide?

seriously..

I will definitely be picking this one up or the three pack if I can find him.
I found the Grimlock and Optimus Prime Platinum edition at Kmart - Definitely over priced, but this mold is by far one of my favorites.

You all its pretty obvious Hasbro has "Gimmicks" and "deals" that they do with each of these stores. I am sure TRU paid a good penny to make this an exclusive along with Kmart and others... It gets people to go to their stores and buy vs going to one.

In the end someone is going to buy these... Here in SC everyone seems to be buying all the Deluxes, Voyagers, and Leaders... It can be pretty difficult to find any... Other than some of the double pack Dinbots at TRU.

I'll wait for the Hasbro Platinum Edition since that one attempts movie-accuracy in both modes, whereas this one only attempts it in truck mold (that robot mode deco is a far cry from any of robot mode colors in the movie).

I don't understand the hate people give this figure. "G1" Prime in AOE was complete trash and is accurately represented in this figure. Give it love for its accuracy.

Well, I for one don't "hate" it, but I do want the one that tries for accuracy in both modes instead of this one.

Hasbro's Platinum Edition attempts to make both the robot and vehicle modes movie-accurate:



In this figure's robot mode, all the part that are gunmetal were closer to blue in the movie, while all the tan parts were closer to red, in the movie. So while the colors aren't an exact match, the Platinum Edition at least tries to match its deco's layout with that of the movie model's deco layout.

Whereas the Takara Rusty Ver. just makes Optimus look like a bloodstained albino from head to toe, with its mostly non-contrasting single-color deco.

Well, I'm not really in the market for another Optimus Prime at the moment anyway, but I'd totally buy one of those Takara Primes and do a little bit of repainting and conversion work to make him into a Zombiecon.

So that Optimus Prime Platinum Edition is in the "Breakout Battle" set? I was wondering why he looked so much better than this one.
Anyone know who is going to be selling the "Breakout Battle?" I ran into the Optimus Prime / Grimlock one at Kmart.

I am guessing too it will be along the same price point $59.99...

Dat Optimus Platinum! :x It's not an MP. Anyone have a picture of the Canadian box to see if there's french on it? I Really, REALLY want to buy this. And I want to buy this in Qu├ębec.

As for the Takara one, holy shit. He DOES look like bloody roadkill. Hell, he'll be more at home in Silent Hill as one nightmarish and gory meat-monster! :SICK:

Wow. At first I was 100% convinced that Takara was the way to go. Not anymore. However, I'll be damned if I'm going to pay Hasbro for a bunch of bots I don't want to get the domestic version, which I noticed does not have his battle mask on. So, there are physically no changes and it's part of a multipack. No thanks. Takara's is almost cool, but not for $65. Looks like I'm sticking with the regular G1 homage only. Oh well. If two companies can't get this guy right, then fuggit.

I actually prefer Hasbro's not having a faceplate over Takara's having one, since Optimus's mouth was very much exposed for the majority of all his scenes in the movie during which he had this body.

I'll take a mouthplate on a more polished version like the Autobots United 5-pack version, but leave the dirtied version mouthplate-less.

Holy shit. This version of Prime looks like he went on a roadkill spree. What is this, Death Race 2000?
