It's the Music Label Optimus Prime. It's been out for a couple years but never released in the US market. I have him and he's pretty f---in' cool. Highly recommended.

Ah, right! Knew there'd be a logical reason. In this instance I'll put it down to personal ignorance.

Nah, not even that. I know another guy who has the Music Label Convoy and he didn't even know there was an Optimus Prime version. It's like this weird blind spot: you have to know it's there to see it or something.
