It's cool to see they are repurposing the Botcon 2007 Optimus transforming gift card.

Was that always a Botcon exclusive, or is it one they handed out there as a promo and was later available some places? I unearthed one of mine from Storage and was playing with it. Wonered if it still had money on it but probably epired long ago.

Looks like this is either continuing the "silver" knight theme or the dirtied up truck cab Evasion Mode.

I picked one up at my local Target in 2007, so I highly doubt it was a Botcon exclusive. It's interesting that they've decided to dust off the mold, though.

Disappointed that Transformers: Age of Extinction Voyager Class Evasion Mode Optimus Prime isn't scene accurate? You'll be happy to know there will be at least one version out there that strives for film accuracy, however it's exclusive to Toys"R"Us Japan. They've just listed a more movie accurate deco with faceplate version on their website. It's listed for 4999 Yen, and scheduled to release on August 10th. Keep an eye on our sponsors, as they will likely be importing this figure. Official images mirrored below:

Nope, still too bright looking for my taste.

Needs to be more darker.

Not too bad as that is a hard paint job to pull off.

I kinda like that Prime, nice and weathered. Maybe the next waves of movie toys will be better.

I for one believe that the domestic Hasbro Evasion Prime release should have received the face plate treatment and this mold should have been released sans the face plate. If the US version is supposed to harken back to the '84 color scheme and pull at the heart strings of G1ners then the face plate should have been included. Still I like both molds. I purchased two so far. One to remain MISB and the other for display. I opened one today and it is probably one of my all time favorite TF movie verse figures. Great joints and paint job. My only gripe would be the elbow articulation. The one big plus about the AOE line (at least the voyager and leader class molds) is that you can remove the figures from their plastic and re box them in their plastic without destroying the packaging. Takara has been doing that for years. Hasbro has followed suit recently. I noticed this upon opening a few Marvel Legends figures from Captain America TWS and the Amazing Spider-Man 2 :BOT:

All I'm seeing is a gray bot with some rust color here and there. Not even close for me.

:MAXIMAL:

looks too clean & bright,should be more of an off white with a hell of a lot more "rust". I dont think this mold is ever going to get a good paint job by hasbro or takara

....shit, I'm gonna have to get this, aren't I? It may not be 100% absolutely perfect, but it's good enough for me.

I think the final figure may have less "rust" than this is showing. I bet its hand painted and as they paint more and more it will become tiresome and they just wont put as much effort or care in.

The bot mode needs more paint, he suddenly becomes Ultra Magnus's cab bot when he transforms

I do like it though.
