New Revoltech Optimus Prime revealed at Wonder Festival 2019 Winter

It's been a long time since we've seen Kaiyodo produce a Transformers figure, but they're back! Shown off at Wonder Festival 2019 Winter we're being treated to an all new Revoltech G1 Optimus Prime! Thanks to photos from the event from @toratora264 on Twitter we're seeing two unpainted gray models and one fully painted figure showing off his abundance of articulation and accessories. From what we can see he comes with multiple hands, his blaster, and an Energon ax. Time will tell if he comes with anything else. When he's released this July the price is a little steep at 7,500 JPY ($68~ USD) for what is likely a roughly 5 inch figure, but will be considerably cheaper after typical Japanese store discounts.

Kaiyodo's last attempt at a G1 style Optimus Prime was first released in 2007 and later reissued in 2014 and was based on the art of Pat Lee and Dreamwave Comics. You can see the Seibertron.com photo gallery for that figure here. They would also do figures of Ultra Magnus (white Optimus version), Megatron, Starscream, and Hot Rod. They would also later do two version of live action Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime.

So how do you feel about a new, not Transforming Revoltech Optimus Prime? Exciting? A waste of money? Or are you just indifferent? Sound off in the Energon Pub forums below!

Y'know, if I stood like that all the time, people would start leaving the room whenever I showed up.

Ya know, I found a very similar looking figure for preorder on BBTS. Could this be that?

I’d rather have Tamashi tale a stab at this instead and make a figuarts of Optimus

I can go for this. I liked Action Masters and the line of non-transforming action figures they did for the 2007 movie and ROTF.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I like the super poseable Revoltech figures. I have the Megatron and Starscream from years ago.

I'll probably buy this.
