A new image of Studio Series SS 38 Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime has been uploaded to Instagram.
It is an in hand image of Optimus Prime posed in his robot mode.

To those unaware, we know from a previous image (shown below) that the alternate mode is very inspired by the truck in the G1 cartoon. We also know he has a 35 step conversion and that the figure comes with the "San Francisco Bridge" backdrop, which is where he meets Bumblebee at the end at the end of the film.

This figure will be coming out mid spring next this year.

About Devastator, keep in mind that this is the Japanese schedule which doesn't always match up with Hasbro's. Some figures are released roughly the same time, but others, like ROTF Starscream coming in January or helicopter Dropkick coming in March, are way off. Those 2020 release from Takara Tomy could be late 2019 for Hasbro.

That's Chinese, so it's still Hasbro schedule give or take a few months. TakaraTomy releases do usually come later than Hasbro, but both sets of 4 should still be released within the two years specified.

Its just from a different angle than what we saw in the box pictures. It ends up a lot longer looking than that box art made it look.

He looks a lot better than the stock photos would have you believe.

Still not a big fan of the Movieverse G1-ified Optimus. It's great for those of you who care, but to me it's just pandering to the G1 fans

It's not bad, but I keep thinking that his midsection is either mistransformed or has battle damage. Looks like his grille and bumper got straight ripped out.

I think he looks really good,but I get where you are coming from.The G1 designs should't be the only influence on the robots.

It’s not a retool of siege. That’s just a theory people keep saying but if you look at how his legs transform, they accordion from the side instead of the back similar to blastoff, rook and brawl molds. It’s a new mold.

My frustrations aside, that does look a lot better in-hand than the official product shots.

What frustration, that here on out every single toy will be Optimus Prime, to the point that we are currently looking at literally a Transformers: Bumblebee Optimus Prime? :lol:

This OP looks really awesome, and it doesn't make me regret buying the upsized Evasion OP in the least. Two different takes on the character, both of which I'm happy to have in my collection.

Alas, the one figure from Studio Series that I cannot afford to miss out on. I will definitely be getting this guy as soon as I see him in stores. I hope he is at least SS Voyager Prime's size(the first one), because I would like some size to indicate presence in my collection. Also, I am liking what steps of engineering that is present in this photo, like the folding side panels on the bottom of his forearms.

BTW guys, pictures of the components of Devastator and possibly a teaser of KSI Boss have been posted on TFW2005. Check it out:

Edit: You already know about Devastator's components, but the possible KSI Boss teaser is interesting, if it's not fake anyway

I did that with Optimus, thats why i always buy my figures as cheap as possible. So that i can then sell them as equally cheap if ever need be and not be stuck with a bunch of unwanted figures.


For that Megatron, I plan to be a bit evil. The new one may be returned because he's "defective". :twisted:

That’s the one. Just...so many Optimus Primes that all look the same.. I bet GEEWUN John Warden eats plain oatmeal and boiled goose every single day for breakfast, because he doesn’t seem to like any variety.

To be a little fair this time, it was Travis Knight who wanted a G1-looking Optimus in the movie, and at least the Siege line will be giving us a Cybertron-based Leader class Optimus.
