Fellow Seibertronian Sabreblade has found an image of a new Redeco using a Titans Return mold. In addition to Orion Pax, snakas has a pic of a black redeco of Leader class Powermaster Optimus Prime, with the logo of Primitive Skateboarding printed on the side of the toy's trailer, suggesting it to be some kind of promotional tie-in figure.

... and looking at his comic appearance we should all should have seen that coming, looking at the shape of the shoulders:

Sure, IDW Kup had them too, but still...

When is that from? Before or after the thrilling 30's deluxe?

Are... are Hasbro still using this design? Seriously?

What is it with them taking obscure one-off pre-2011 IDW stuff? This design of Orion Pax that showed up once in a few panels, Thunderwing... I am so confused.

This comic was made specifically for the T30 Deluxe. The design did appear in IDW before though - once - in Spotlight: Blurr.

Ok then, that confirms my suspicion of the TR Orion being based off the original toy, similar to how Kup was tooled (also doesn't hurt they were the exact same toy).

The shoulders on one version of IDW Kup and that version of Orion Pax are similar enough for reuse without retooling it looks like. Could be coincidence, but one that works for Hasbro. It's still mostly Kup in the chest and leg designs, but enough lines up for Orion, especially given the e-Hobby release.

It's more likely to be an SDCC exclusive. It has the boxset name on it too, an indivual instruction sheet, and it is leaking at the exact same time that SDCC boxset components leak (like the arcee redeco 2 years back).

If so, I'm guessing Hasbro will jump the sharkticon and give us a TR Windblade in some one-off deco.

So glad I bought it day 2. Also confirmed my theory that the order of products is based on current stock.

What do you mean by that second part? How can it be current if its a preorder and not arrived yet?

Poor word choice on my part, available preorders would be the proper term (I think). During the 2 days available to preorder, its ranking started high on the first page of TR products, but slowly descended to the second page and most likely the third, before running out of preorders. The highest figures are the big tickets that don't move, but below are case assortments of older waves and generally less liked figures. That's where my theory comes from, and I am almost certain it is true from the data I gathered during the open preorders for seige on cybertron.

Then I will cut right to the chase and ask you if, through your theory, this would mean that there will be no more sets available once Hasbro send them the boxsets?
Is it just the preorder that is sold out, or should fans really start looking at other international outlets?

I'd say to look elsewhere for now. Wait till mid June then check back. If not, they will almost certainly have some available to order after the preorders ship.

EDIT: if this truely is a BBTS exclusive, Hasbro will definitely send more.

Thanks for your opinions :) And I can confirm, this is truly a BBTS exclusive... in the US. Meaning that other countries will have their own outlets but in the US proper, you can only buy it through them.

its available elsewhere in Canada, for instance:

Are you kidding? It has the takara PMOP but without ugly white, and is also 2/3 of the price and comes with extra figures if you're only after Optimus.

Not surprised it sold out (which is why I PO'd day 1), but thought it would take a little longer than a week.
