It's been a long time since we've seen Kaiyodo produce a Transformers figure, but they're back! Shown off at Wonder Festival 2019 Winter we're being treated to an all new Revoltech G1 Optimus Prime! Thanks to photos from the event from @toratora264 on Twitter we're seeing two unpainted gray models and one fully painted figure showing off his abundance of articulation and accessories. From what we can see he comes with multiple hands, his blaster, and an Energon ax. Time will tell if he comes with anything else. When he's released this July the price is a little steep at 7,500 JPY ($68~ USD) for what is likely a roughly 5 inch figure, but will be considerably cheaper after typical Japanese store discounts.

Kaiyodo's last attempt at a G1 style Optimus Prime was first released in 2007 and later reissued in 2014 and was based on the art of Pat Lee and Dreamwave Comics. You can see the Seibertron.com photo gallery for that figure here. They would also do figures of Ultra Magnus (white Optimus version), Megatron, Starscream, and Hot Rod. They would also later do two version of live action Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime.

Y'know, if I stood like that all the time, people would start leaving the room whenever I showed up.

Ya know, I found a very similar looking figure for preorder on BBTS. Could this be that?

I’d rather have Tamashi tale a stab at this instead and make a figuarts of Optimus

I can go for this. I liked Action Masters and the line of non-transforming action figures they did for the 2007 movie and ROTF.

I like the super poseable Revoltech figures. I have the Megatron and Starscream from years ago.

I'll probably buy this.

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath we've been alerted to a Revoltech Optimus Prime photo gallery from Figure King magazine as posted by Loopaza Megastore on Facebook. We got our first look at this stellar new entry in the Revoltech line (technically the Amazing Yamaguchi powered by Revoltech line) back at Wonder Festival 2019 Winter. We thought we had a good grasp at the time of just how fantastic this figure would be, but seeing it show off its high level of articulation in full color is quite impressive for what will likely be a roughly 5" figure. The figure will include his gun, energon ax, and multiple hand options.

Enjoy the photos and let us know what you think about this figure in the Energon Pub forums below.

Damn, he looks great. Yamaguchi is an amazing toy designer though- I don't care about superheroes at all but his comic Revoltechs are awesome.
