TFW05 member Sioce posted a very interesting image of what appears to be a Powermaster upgrade for Animated Optimus Prime. The image reveals a silhouette that matches the concept art for Animated Powermaster Optimus Prime seen in the Allspark Almanac, and bears the title "Firemaster" with the message "Keep Animation Alive". See the his mirrored image below, and click here for the original article.

I'm all over this.

I was just looking over the Allspark Almanac today, and was sad those designs never got used.

Now they might!

That's his new Magnus hat. He got it after being appointed the rank after season 3.

The original idea for this armor was that Sentinel "Magnus" had gotten the old Project: Omega group back together to build him this armor. But, before he'd get to wear it, Optimus would wind up "borrowing" it instead, taking it with him back to Earth fight against the newly-escaped Megatron.

There's only one set of armor, though.

In the second Allspark Almanac, they laid out their plans for the cancelled fourth season. This plot point was among them.

Hopefully, we end up getting a Season 4 comic.

Never aired as an episode. It was in the AllSpark Almanac, which is basically a book about Animated designs and plans that never came to existence.

Get BOTH. AllSpark Almanac and AllSpark Almanac II. The second one has all the season 4 stuff, but the first has stuff for the first two seasons that you can't find anywhere else.

As for the legitimacy of my claim, I quote page 185 of the AllSpark Almanac II book:
In-universe, the Powermaster upgrade would have been the brain child of Sentinel Prime. The old team behind Project Omega, including Ratchet, would be tasked with building an upgrade for he acting Magnus. In the aftermath of Megatron's prison break, it would be "borrowed" by Otimus. If possible, the armor would have been compatible with the Sentinel Prime toy.
