Courtesy of a Weibo post once again, we have new images of the packaging for the upcoming Transformers: Tribute 2-Pack of WFC Optimus Prime and Orion Pax from Titans Return Kup! It proudly displays the figures alongside a little bio description for the two. As the image is a bit small, we've typed out the bio below for an easier time reading. Take a look and tell us what you think in the forums!

"Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing." The words of OPTIMUS PRIME tell of his own epic journey as the universe's greatest protector. A humble data scientist, ORION PAX accepted the MATRIX OF LEADERSHIP to become the powerful AUTOBOT commander OPTIMUS PRIME.

"Humble data scientist"? So I guess they're going with the Dreamwave War Within backstory rather than TFP's librarian, G1's factory worker or IDW's super-cop? :-?

That was Optronix, though. Orion Pax as a data clerk/archivist/librarian was Aligned.

The two aren't related as side from name, but I don't know what they would retool into Megatronus. I hope they wouldn't reuse the RID mold if they were to hypothetically do this.

In Transformers Prime Megatron's name used to be Megatronus

Great set! This will give the chance to those who missed out on the original WFC Optimus. It go for insane prices on Ebay for years now.

Not only that, but has a much more tasteful blue accent color! Also doesn't hurt that it is a box set and will probably sell slower. Well, that's assuming it goes the bee vs steeljaw box and not chaos on velocitron.

If they do a Megatron set, maybe it will be like the Optimus One, re-release the WFC megatron and a new pre-war Megatron. My idea would be Miner Megatron

Oooooh they even have the head sculpt. I can definitely see this happening. The mold isn't perfect but I doubt we'd get any remolding on it.

That's why it's not perfect. If it had a singular drill, then it would be perfect.

They probably specifically meant pre-war-Megatron Megatronus for the boxset, not member-of-the-Thirteen Megatronus.

I'm pretty sure that this boxset is going to be around $30-$40 USD, so yes, it would be a bit more cheaper if the set was around that price range. You'll be getting the most for your wallet. :ic$: The Titans Return Kup isn't a bad figure, but I would rather see the Generations Sergeant Kup get retooled as Orion Pax; I think he will just look better. :BOT:

Really? The torso just really couldn't work as any other character without major reengineering.

I would very much like this. He looks pretty =P~ . Plus, any opportunity to get a WfC Megatron (which, next to TR Megs, is probably my hypothetical favorite representation of the character) like I hopefully will Optimus here would be very welcome.

Ya know I get it. It's an exclusive, an Asian exclusive at that but I was expecting 30-40 not $60. Oh well. Cheers to anyone who gets it
