With gracious thanks to the TF Upgrader Facebook page, we finally have our first look at the Year of the Horse Masterpiece Optimus Prime! This Optimus Prime features gold chrome on his grill, exhaust pipes, gas tanks, and Matrix chamber, a translucent trailer, and an altered Autobot faction symbol.

Image

Keep up with Seibertron.com, as we should have our first look at the other Year of the Horse exclusive, a suped up Cybertron "King" Starscream, very soon!

Probably made in homage to that (well, without the trailer, obviously).

Hmm, I don't think I like the gold chrome. Looks odd.

I'm sure the one or two Optimus Prime/Convoy collectors out there are very happy. As a regular Masterpiece collector, I'm not that interested.

How about they release the normal masterpiece version, and this time send it in large enough amounts so that scalpers don't buy them out.

....that's not as bad as I thought. In fact, the gold chrome looks pretty nice on him. It's that translucent trailer that ruins it for me. -_-

First Look at Packaging of Year of the Horse Optimus Prime, Small Glimpse at YotH Starscream

Motto: "For I have dipped my hands in muddied waters, and, withdrawing them, find 'tis better to be a commander than a common man!"
Weapon: Dark Saber Sword
TF Upgrader is at it again! Following up on our earlier story where we got our first look at Year of the Horse Optimus Prime, TF Upgrader's Facebook page uploaded another image of the exclusive figure, this time being the suped up Autobot leader in his packaging. We can expect the packaging to be a book box, similarly to the previous Platinum Edition releases. Check him out below in his golden chromey glory!

Image

UPDATE: Sabrblade pointed us in the direction of the eBay auction where TF Upgrader found the images, which not only include the package's front flap and accessories, but the origin of the original image where we first saw Year of the Horse Optimus Prime: the bottom of Year of the Horse Starscream's package, which can be barely seen on the top of the toy availability callout!

Image

Image

The image containing the glimpse of Starscream has been cropped to help make it easier to point out.

Courtesy of the CYBERGEEKS Alliance Facebook page we have nice clear, and probably official, packaging shots of the upcoming Transformers Platinum Year of the Horse Optimus Prime and Starscream. Optimus Prime is a redeco of the popular MP-10 mold, and Starscream is redeco of his Cybertron Ultimate Class figure.

Update: We also have an official image of the Starscream figure, which boast a more G1 inspired deco. Image courtesy Weibo user 小白哥乌拉诺斯.

No words to describe how much I love that Starscream right now. :x :x :x

Also, Starscream's altered Decepticon symbol uses the original Generation One design! :KREMZEEK:

We don't know, but we can expect to know more sometime around the first quarter of 2014, maybe at Toy Fair 2014. ;)
