An early concept of Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime by Don Figueroa was produced for Transformers/GI Joe crossover comic but never come into fruition. However, it seems like a Japanese third party company named "Xovergen Production" will give us their take on Figueroa's design and turn it into a toy.

Xovergen Production has posted a silhouette of the alternate mode of Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime, or rather Supreme Tactical Commander-Grand Patriot . The site also mentions that this toy will be released at the end of 2010, and is comprised of a transforming robot and a commander base.

I'd have to see what he looks like (comic, not toy) before I'm sold on the idea. Then I'd need to see the finished product.

I do so love these 3rd party companies. At least they'll do what Hasbro hasn't.

I'm not putting Hasbro down, but lately these companies have been earning my money and they deserve it.

If it's anywhere near as good as this it'll be impressive.

That's kinda awesome. I'm hoping the quality is a bit more in step with FansProject than other third party offerings. Of course at this stage, the entire thing could turn into a giant turd. I have high hopes for this one.

Gonna take a wait and see approach, but let's hope this can turn out as good as a Fans Project toy. But for now, I'm kinda excited, and I've been wanting a green colored prime in my collection for sometime now.

Now we just need that Dominator Megs and I'm set!!

I'm all over this if the design is accurate and it fits the Classics/Henkei scale figures-but definitely not if these guys don't prove themselves a worthy player in the third party universe. I'm getting tired of 3P vendors showing flashy ideas and prototypes and then failing on QA/QC and materials quality.

I'll wait until there are actual prototype images to make my judgement.

I have bought stuff from encline designs before and his stuff is AMAZING..right on par with frenzyrumble and Jin Saotome..If this offering is even remotely like this it'll be amazing..We could possibly be seeing the 3rd party balance of power shift towards someone else besides FP..It is of course far too early to tell but the mere possibility is worth getting excited for...

This sounds like it could be really good if done right.

That's the biggie. 'If' done right. All we have so far is... what, a silhouette?

They all almost always start out as a silhouette don't they?
