According to ruinnatn of the TFW2005.com boards, there is an upcoming Costco exclusive figure soon to be arriving at distribution centers across the country.

ruinnatn is an employee of Costco, and this is what he has to say regarding his findings:

ruinnatn :
Not that big but Costco is getting the leader class Optimus Prime and it comes with Legends figures (not sure which ones or how many although it is plural) it is schedualed to hit the distribution center ( depot) on June 2 so they should be showing up around the same time as everything else. The Costco item number is 196085 and it's retail is 34.59-35.99 depending on region.( I work at a Costco in VA so ours is 34.99)


So there is no word how many Legends figures will be included, nor which ones. For that matter, they, or the Prime figure itself, could possibly be repaints.

Continue to watch Seibertron.com and we'll keep you posted when more details about this exclusive are revealed.

I want the leader Prime more than the rest of the movie stuff for sure. Depending on the bonuses here, this may be the way for me to go! 8)

Legends of Cybertron are listed as "micro class" in the Vector Sigma Database. For the sake of giving you an example I defer to the LOC Bumblebee figure from Classics here.

Edit: They were introduced during Cybertron as smaller scale versions of major characters in the series. The Bumblebee figure I've linked to above is a repaint of Cybertron's LOC Hot Shot figure.

$5 less than the regular version, and it comes with free Legends figures?

I wonder if there's a Costco in Providence.

I'm hoping it won't share a paint scheme with the other Costco exclusive Optimus release. I don't want to imagine movie Prime in yellow!

I'm guessing that the paintjob will be different, maybe more G1-ish?

Couldn't agree more! I hope it stays primarily red a blue in some form or fashion!

I don't think so, just because the Costco-exclusive Cybertron Optimus/Wing Saber 2-pack weren't repaints. They were just the normal versions repackaged with a DVD and Wing Saber in robot mode. Exclusives are more often repaints than not, though, so who knows.
