Found this from whatsapp group. Since there is movie optimus artwork on the front, i am assuming it is part of movie toyline. If it is not, feel free to move it on the appropriate place.

That's bizarre. Old movie Optimus picture rather tnan his current knight form and with two non-movie mold figures. Usually in these double packs you'd get at least one of them being a previously used movie mold.

Ooo another Evolution Pack! Me likey. This is part of the Tribute line apparently...maybe that's where the Orion Pax comes from. Although nothing from the packaging confirms this is a Takara product, it looks like Hasbro packaging. I thought the Tribute line was Takara.

:MAXIMAL:

Now that looks pretty great! I actually never got a chance to get WFC Optimus, so this is absolutely going on my to-buy list. (Orion super looks like Animated Cybertronian Optimus, actually - even moreso than I had expected him to!)

We had news of the Transformers Tribute line appearing soon from our regular Weibo user/leaker, but we now also have an in-package image of who Orion Pax (the Kup repaint) will be featured with: deluxe War for Cybertron Generations Optimus Prime! Check out the box below, as reported by several Seibertronians, and let us know what you think of this new Evolution Pack line!

So this is a movieverse set with no movie toys?

That's kinds dumb.

And I already have the WFC Optimus so I'm not seeing the need to buy another one. I might have bight Orion Pax if he was sold alone but I'll probably skip this.

That just screams Target exclusive ;)

I kinda want that Orion repaint but I don't need a second Linebacker Prime. Is the WfC OP deco any different?

Two pre-Earth toys of Optimus, both as versions of him from a point set before he got the Matrix. Weird.

Really great for people like me who are getting the takara kup and don't have linebacker prime.

Yes. The red looks to be deeper, the gray darker, and all the pink Tron-style lights are light blue instead of pink.

Oh I'm getting this. My WFC Optimus fell from the shelf and his right antennae broke and that Pax looks too good to pass up. I was getting worried they go all out homage and include Dione in the Wheelie mold.

Heh, ok. I passed on that WFC Prime many times as it didn't interest me and that Kup mold looks pretty bad so I don't mind passing on this set.

Another WFC Prime? Boo. That mold is such a pain to transform.

I like the Pax version of the Kup mold. Normally I would say he looks good. However, seeing him next to that sweet cherry red WFC Prime makes him look.... kinda dull by comparison. Pax looks like he needs to go to the car wash and get a premium wax.

We knew it was Hasbro since Takara toys never get leaked (at leasst not that I know of) and the instructions shown were Hasbro instructions with English everywhere:

Also takara doesnt really do stuff like this, with current molds, aside from E-hobby stuff but thats another story.

These other double pack figures make much more sense to be in an 'evolution' two pack with movie Prime on the box than this WfC and Kup mold.

It's all just a bit weird...

Huh, that looks pretty neat. Assuming I don't get Legends Kup at some point I might spring for this.

But when isn't Optimus Prime Optimus Prime? He's always the same character, Peter Cullin says so every chance he gets.

But if we want to get nerdy, we do know that the High moon games both serve as a peripheral prequel (either canon or not) to both the films and the alligned continuity since there are references to both of those continuities within the games (Lockdown and Dark energon for instance). Now we know Orion Pax is also part of the Alligned Continuity, specifically prime. So Movie Prime, WFC Prime and Orion pax are all loosely connected in the multiple iterations of the evolution of the various optimus prime depicitons and designs throughout the years :D

They are a quasi prequel to the aligned continuity, even though WFC was meant to be a G1 based universe, but where does the Movie references come in?


Dark Energon was never mentioned on screen, and Lockdown, to my knowledge, never appeared in Prime. If you mean Rise of the Dark Spark game, it's established in game those are two different universes that the Dark Spark jumps across.

There you go, they are all all connected in some way.
