Following notification from several Seibertron.com members, theoriginalzero on Twitter has posted an image that appears to be the first look at Leader Class Cybertron Optimus Prime from the Generations War for Cybertron: Siege lineup. This Leader Class figure appears to utilize a similar "inner" robot to Ultra Magnus, and comes with the appropriate armor pieces to utilize an upgraded form straight from 2006:

While this is not a confirmed release from Hasbro, it looks pretty certain given this and some of the vestigial parts on Voyager Class Optimus Prime and Leader Class Ultra Magnus that this latest Siege Leader Class figure will help you find the Cyber Planet Keys before the Decepticons can use them for evil! Reminisce on your adventures with Optimus Prime, Hot Shot, Landmine, Jetfire, Scattorshot, Vector Prime and more by checking out our comprehensive Transformers: Cybertron toy galleries.

Awesome, just really cool. No point in getting a 3rd party Masterpiece version, cuz this looks like it will have all the articulation and features that a Masterpiece-esque version would have.

Looks cool. I love the UT, Cybertron most of all, and it is time they got some more love, Armada had a few CHUG figures, Energon Prime got a homage with Combiner wars prime, along with Ginari, and it's time for cybertron to have it's revival.

I don't even like Transformers: Cybertron, but this figure looks like a lot of fun. This is probably the most unique Optimus Prime figure we'll be getting this year. I really wan it, but weather or not I need it is another story. It's tough because I really want to get into the Siege, but I also am a huge collector of the Studio Series and these toys ain't cheap. I guess I'll have to just wait and see.

t's just occurred to me, we've had 2 prime leaks, when're we gonna see Omega? we saw the unpainted tank prototype back in October i think, but when are we gonna see the full figure. For that matter when is the next major convention? I'm guessing that's when figures like this and SS-38 (is that right, the Bumblebee Optimus) will be officially revealed by HasTak.

I still have my original Cybertron Optimus, which already was and still is a great figure, so I don't know if I really feel compelled to get this one or not.

This is an older picture from a very old phone camera, so I should take another later - anyways, I'd love to see a Leobreaker in this lineup that is closer to the initial sketches for the character. Source of this is the Galaxy Force Phase Ignition book.

Holy CRAP yes. Cybertron/GF Optimus was one figure I always wanted, so this is pretty much everything I've ever wanted in an Optimus figure. :x Hopefully this "SUPER MODE!" will show up in the new IDW comics, since Prime uses the inner robot anyway.

Provided this is, y'know, actually real. :-s

This reminds me of the non-Beast Mode concept art in the back of The Gathering/Ascending (and Hearts of Steel). Sometimes this concept art really highlights how ...unimaginative, the final release product on the shelves can by.

What I would be more excited for would be an arm mode as it looked like in the initial sketches

Thankfully, I have the original, so this makes buying Ultra Magnus easier.

iirc, Leobreaker was a victim of Takara's financial troubles at that time. Couldn't take a chance on another Ultra Class and OP upgrades were moreso their thing than Hasbro's. Galaxy Force was their last line before the Tomy merger, as more circumstantial evidence of this.

Yeah that arm mode is also in the book, would love to see it happen!
