Fellow Seibertronian Sentinel Primal made us aware of a post form Reddit featuring what appears to be a sleeper mode redeco of Earthrise "leader" Optimus Prime. What is most convincing about this is the fact that most of the "colour" comes from the plastic rather than paint which wouldn't be the case were it a custom.

We know nothing else aside from this photo at this point in time.

Dammit. Trying to be selective with this line is extremely difficult.

I like that they'll make battle damaged versions of figures, and black and white versions, but we still don't have a black and white battle damaged optimus prime. Really that's the only time you see Optimus in black and white like that, when he's had the s**t kicked out of him by Megatron.

That's kinda super lame.

I wanted to see a SG or G2 Prime from this, not this.

Meh...if it was the predicable Nemesis Prime, or some other character sharing the same body (a s others have mentioned SG etc...) I would be interested, but as this is literally the same character, just portraying him at his lowest point, it holds no interest to me

OP dished out just as much as he took, if not for Unicron, Megs would have died as well.

We still could to be fair, nothing saying this is going to be the only repaint. MP 01 recieved a similar repaint didn't it?

I guess this could end up a SELECTS. I can't imagine them selling a 'dead Optimus' as a mainline figure.

It's definitely not gonna be mainline, but I'm not sure it'll be Selects either. Some people are speculating this was gonna be the SDCC exclusive. I'm betting it'll end up like the toy-colors Refraktor pack, as a non-Selects fan channel exclusive.

I'll be honest, even though it's Prime's corpse, I might get it just as a stand alone figure. I can't really justify retail Prime because it's so similar to Siege Prime, but something about this color scheme just appeals to me

Maybe? But I just don't see them putting "Dead Optimus Prime" on the shelf in the TOY SECTION between the Power Rangers and the TMNT figures. I feel like thats a Class Action from some Karen Parentgroup just WAITING to happen.

I'm still hoping for a Toxitron redeco of this. Probably not going to happen though. Earthrise Nemesis Prime I hope is at least on the horizon at some point. SG Prime would also be awesome as well.

Given that Nemesis Prime was technically a Takara Tomy figure, we haven't really seen Hasbro do a redeco of the Siege Optimus beyond the special edition. I'd love to have a Toxitron Shattered Glass or even Nova Prime out of their Siege Optimus or the ER one. I could absolutely see Nova Prime as a redeco of the Galaxy Convoy figure. I doubt it will happen at this point but I think it would work nicely.

You know what, a Toxitron redeco would also be welcomed by me

Wouldn't he have to be a tanker in order to be Toxitron?

That's why I'm kinda hoping for a proper Leader-class G2 Laser Prime soon, not just cuz I'm very unsatisfied with the Octane pre-tool one we got in TR, but also because it could then be retooled into a proper Scourge and Toxitron.

The negative feedback on this is kinda depressing. We've been begging Hasbro for a G1 accurate trailered Prime for years. MP was the only option. And Hasbro has never released a Sleep Mode Prime, so to think we may be getting this, and people are complaining about it, makes me remember why I left the boards to begin with.
