One other thing we can easily rule out for this Deluxe class "Quintessa" figure would be the Necrotitan from IDW1, whose real name was Quintessa.

No mere Deluxe class toy would do that Quintessa any due justice.

regarding quintessa, there's a chance that it will be a homage to movie quntessa, just like how barricade is a homage to movie barricade. in this case, we can probably expect a new fembot toy. this would be interesting, assuming she gets her own mold, because another alternative would be a retool of, well, certain particular mold. you know which one.

I'm just hoping they are better than the Energon toy. Grant it at the time it was the only toy of it, but I just couldn't find anywhere in my heart to like it. That's one of the first toys I sold when I decided to thin my collection a bit several years back.

I think Quintessa might be a baseformer like Ironworks and turns from robot to the pit or a throne room.

That would be tough considering a TR Ultra Magnus doesn't exist. :-D

If you mean CW Ultra Mags, good luck. I don't think he has a useful 5mm port to attach Soundbarrier as a shield, and his hand would be pretty useless for that.

Holy crap talk about mental moment! #-o Yeah I meant CW Magnus indeed. I'm not a fan of Siege UM. I'm sure Soundbarrier won't peg on at all but both side by side would look great IMO. :VEHI:

In Demand Toys has stock photos of Optimus up, yellow eyes and grey hands, that in-hand set from a while back must have been a custom. I guess I'm going to try to use my Tamiya paint?

They're pinned in there so I'll have to be careful, plus the hands are hinged, making it all the more tricky. Anyway, it'll be fine. Interestingly enough, the package art shows blue hands, but we knew there were logistical issues preventing that.

The trailers base/floor isn't even the same gray as the hands, so much for if this bit is blue/that bit is blue. Must have been another part that was more important to be gray than making the hands and inner legs gray.
No doubt a selects version with a diff pcolor scheme in the works but it still wont get rid of the outy 5mm ports that mar the arms/shoulders.

Don't forget y'all, the blue on the hands and codpiece on those leaked pics a bit ago were paint, and these same "final" Hasbro stock photos for Studio Series Leader DOTM Optimus were missing the silver paint on the ab piece that the actual final toy had. There's still at least some modicum of hope.

EDIT: Another thing of note is that we're back to the trailer port being split between the two legs, 2/3 on one and 1/3 on the other, when the Takara stock images showed the port as being all on one leg.
G2/Action Master/obscure variant-inspired redecos and retools are my lifeblood

Looking for:
- the Headmaster head for Legends LG56 Perceptor, LG59 Blitzwing, LG22 Skullcruncher, or LG30 Weirdwolf
- Unite Warriors Computron's Lightspeed
- Perfect Effect PC-11 Computron torso/head upgrade kit
- Unite Warriors Grand Scourge
- Combiner Wars Air Raid
- rifle and shoulder guns from Siege Bluestreak
- right arm from Earthrise Leader OP
- rifle from Siege Red Alert

Transformers War for Cybertron: Earthrise Leader Class Optimus Prime In Package Images

Postby Bounti76 » Wed Nov 20, 2019 5:01 pm

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
In Demand Toys have posted, on their Facebook page, images of Leader Class Optimus Prime both in and out of package! As you can see, he's packaged with his trailer opened up to repair bay mode, in order to accommodate it in the packaging space.

Image

Additionally, we have images of Optimus out of packaging and giving us some action poses, as well as showing us what is likely the final deco for the figure. A while back, there were images posted of what now seems to be a custom painted figure, with blue hands and codpiece, as well as blue eyes, rather than the G1 toy accurate yellow eyes.


Image

Image

Image

Image

What do you think of these pictures? Will Optimus end up with grey hands and yellow eyes? Or were those previous images a hand painted sabine of what the figure will turn out to look like? Feel free to speculate below!

A very unknown fact about G1 Optimus is that his trailer is sentient...and kind of a Yandere.

This prime has the potential to be the next SS Leader Prime, where there are stock images of 3 different decos and we don't know what it actually looks like until someone finds it at Walmart or Target.
