Seibertron.com members Zeds has informed us of some new images that have surfaced of a prototype figure from the Transformers Classics Universe line.

It seems that Classics Optimus Prime has a silver chrome deco version produced, similar to the Lucky Draw series, but was never released. Below are images of the silver Prime:

Had this been released, it would have been very appropriate issue for Optimus' 25th anniversary in 2009.

Oh, VERY nice... it would've served well as both a "Silver Anniversary" and "Hate Plague Armor" Optimus Prime.

God that's beautiful.

...

GAH, I can't afford it, but DAMN do I want it.

Notice the chrome on the left shoulder has a vague Decepticon symbol?

Something's fishy...

I see the Decepticon symbol as well--it's on two of the photos, and not just one, so that eliminates the "coincidence" factor.

I can see it now, I failed to noticed that the shoulder was cut off by the board.
Very strange indeed. I hope this is something that comes out next year.

Did I read the original post wrong, or did First Gen say this Prime a prototype for a retail release?

While I do see what you're talking about, I think the "decepticon logo" is just a trick of the light...


Kinda want to see this with the shadow commander armour on it :D

No, but it was posted wrong. Every other TF site states that this is UNOFFICIAL, surprised that this site hasn't done the same. This isn't a real deal release, most likely a "lunch time special".

Not sure if it is in fact a prototype of any upcoming event/exclusive releases. When I first saw it on eBay, I simply took it as another chrome creation from heerotoysmaker, lately he's all into chroming toys, wst cab/trailer, wst seekers, etc.

However, the actively high bidding prices of this auction clearly spells winner. Very nicely looking figure indeed. :APPLAUSE:
