It looks like the Age of Extinction/Lost Age toys are unwilling to leave us, as a new redeco has shown up on Toys'R'Us Japan's website. Admittedly, we had heard of it before, but check out below some very nice shots of the TRU Japan exclusive Black Knight repaint of the AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime, including shield and sword accessories, and the faceplate switch gimmick!

He looks so cool.BTW,he looks more like Nemesis.Just look at him and compare it with the LA power battler Nemesis Prime.

This Black Convoy is a sexy MOFO. I already have AD-31 so I gonna pass. However, if anyone dont have the AD-31 retool and are Nemesis Prime / Blabk Convoy lovers, this is a must buy.

Very pretty indeed. That backpack ruins it for me though.

That's one killer looking premium repaint :APPLAUSE:
I have the normal Leader so might get him if he's not to super expensive. He looks great.
I wish they'd do something with Nenemsis Prime in the next film.

I really don't know if i need this. It's a beautiful retool, but the red on the chest doesn't belong. I'll wait to see what HLJ prices him at.

I don't think it's going to be on there. it's a Japanese TRU exclusive. I don't remember HLJ getting the Nemesis evasion mode prime.

I NEED preorders for this!! but yea colors on the chest is a lil strange too.

I don't know about teal and black, but the last black Autobot Optimus Prime was Prime Dark Guard, without the teal:

even though im not a fan of these incarnations of the characters the toys look pretty solid. Wheeljack looks like he'd be a great figure to play around with, Soundwave is ruined by the backpack but he still looks interesting. This is why i miss the universe line, they could easily put these in there along with every other unreleased figure that we all wanted. Kill one steps & titans, bring back universe.

Since it's a "Black Knight" redeco, I gotta wonder if this is meant to be Optimus when he was a member of the same Knights as the Dinobots, who all received similar "Black Knight" (movie-accurate) redecos.

We all know this is really a Scourge / Black Convoy homage. Silly Takara. :KREMZEEK:
