Thanks to a Tweet from site sponsor TFsource, we have word that Blacklai's Toybase has acquired the very soon to be released BB-02 Legendary Optimus Prime figure and has provided us with some in-hand images!

This new figure is an entirely new mold taking cues from the Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, but upsized and reworked to have some unique new touches to the design. The figure also sports a nice coat of chrome paint over several components. Included in the images are comparisons to the MPM-06 Bumblebee, the MP-10 Optimus Prime mold, and the Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Prime.

Blacklai notes that a lot of the joints on the figure are ratcheted, his hands open, the gun he comes with can store on his back, he has the option of a faceplate or no faceplate, and the gun even stores under the truck mode! He goes on to say that this is the best official version of the cab over movie Prime.

Check out a sample of images below, and you can click any one of the images to view the full gallery of shots. Let us know what you think of him in the comments section below!

BB-02 is way smaller than MP-10 in bot mode. But the same size in truck mode! There's some nice mass-shifting going on here.

That is nowhere near the original toy. Yes, it shares some deign cues as they originate from the same source material. But its bigger for one. The back and chest are in totally different places, and literally all of the limbsa are different. It’s not just an upsizing

actually, the transformation is pretty much the same, with few extra steps here and there. here's the transformation video.

It would have made a lot more sense to paint the bottom of his feet than the top.

That pic shows one of the things I hate about certain figures, where the hands are obscured, particularly on any side that restricts certain accessories. AoE Evasion Prime's hands are blocked from below so if I wanted to have him hold a long staffed weapon like an axe he can't do it. That new version has completely unblocked hands and it's a vast improvement. Also as a bonus has nicer looking panels on the underneath of the forearm too.

I don't think I'll get the new figure though cos price/size/doesn't really go with anything in my (now mostly Studio Series) Transformers collection but it's certainly an upgrade in a lot of ways.

That's the shield/backpack from Calibur Optimus Prime (the figure on the right). It transforms into part of his truck mode.

IMO this Prime figure would have been perfect had his feet and hands been painted in reverse so for that reason I'm out...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Shark Tank style!! :APPLAUSE:

I actually do like this figure, and I'm hoping we get a version of it in the SS toyline. I mean, I didn't think we'd get Legends Super Ginrai and then *boom!* Siege on Cybertron set!

Hmm..he'd look pretty neat in the rusty colors to go with my AoE Armor Knight after seeing that shot with Calibur Optimus!

I'll wait for the inevitable Nemesis repaint ;)^

Can we call it a remaster?

Why would we? It's way out of scale with Studio Series. :P
