We got some more news for the upcoming Transformers Alternate Universe Optimus Prime release. Firstly, I am referring to the grey redeco of Earthrise Optimus Prime, which references Optimus dying in the 1986 film. Firstly, through the Amazon wish list trick we can now see that the release date will be July 15, which is Prime day this year. @chrisrtxv on Twitter posted what they see on their Amazon wishlist, there is on actual link to the product page right now though.

We also have images of how the toy will come packaged with a cardboard box of Optimus' chest windows with reflections of his friends surrounding his death bed. Those image come from Toy Malaysia on Facebook. The group is private but the images have been reflected below.

Good advice everyone, thank you. I too am real excited for Snapdragon. He will look great next to his buddy Apeface, who is arriving for me on Monday.

Also, that Prime looks like he can be a Nemesis stand in.

It just hit me.

With Siege having given us Spinister, and this Alternate Universe OP being a dead OP, the rest of the WFC Trilogy just needs to give us Galvatron, Scourge, Dirge, Thunderwing, and Bludgeon to give us the rest of the G1 guest stars from "Worlds Collide". ;)

And maybe give us a Dropshot for good measure.

Was it ever determined why this was named Alternate Universe Prime? I mean, if the Siege figures are based on the 84 cast, that means they represent the cartoon, and the movie is in the cartoon universe, which means Prime dying happened in the same universe, not an alternate one.

Probably because it's toughter to market Sleep Mode and Dead Body Optimus Prime. Especially as a retailer exclusive. Or they want to avoid spoilers for a 35 year old movie :lol:

In a retelling, not everything (or anything) has to go the same way as in an earlier telling. The ranks of the characters have changed in some instances, the spoiler for Ultra Magnus suggests another change from 'what we know as we know it', guys introduced years later have backfilled to before the war.

I wouldn't be using actual G1 as the barometer of how it's 'supposed to go.'

Thing is, while the retelling deviates from the cartoon (as we've already seen), the toys are largely made based on the cartoon with the retelling serving to give them some extra plugging.

I think you hit the nail right on the head here.

Well it is an alternative universe Optimus as I'd wager this is supposed to be 86 movie prime ;)

I get to typing in the tra part and it pops up in the search. But no results and I've included prime items and out of stocks. Wonder if it's gone already.

Shame the box art has more damage to his chest than the actual toy. No doubt there will pics of ss stinger using his shurikens to make prime go sleep :)

Might pick this up if it drops in price like potp black prime did but not in any rush as I should get a living prime first.

I was wondering the same thing, although they could be hiding the link for Prime Day

Is "Prime Day" a USA only thing again? Meaning will that Graytimus be available at Amazon.ca at that date?

Perhaps it's from the perspective of the Netflix show, which is the show for this trilogy of toylines. If Optimus doesn't die in that show, then that would make the universe in which he does die (e.g. - the G1 cartoon universe circa TFTM) be the "alternate universe" from the Netflix show's perspective.

Just like how G1 was seen as an alternate universe from Armada's perspective back when that franchise did its big "Worlds Collide" storyline in the Dreamwave Armada comics.

On page 201 of this thread I posted a link to a dude's Amazon Wishlist. He has this Prime in his wishlist. The trick is to go to his wishlist and order it for yourself. Stuff that is not available for order can sometimes be added to a wishlist and then pre-orders can be made from that listing. This is the second time I've used someone's wishlist to get a figure pre-ordered before the listing is up.

Greetings Seibertronians! We have a little oddity to share with you all today as Star Scream of CollecticonToys, dropped us a line to inform us of a discovery they made while toy hunting.

Normally, Thundercracker and Skywarp are packaged with TC on the left hand side of the box and Skywarp to the right, as seen in this picture from our recent news report

Image

Well what Star Scream has found is a product where they're position is reversed. As seen in this new image below:

Image

Now, while this won't be a big deal to many, afterall the box will be destined for recycle bins across the world. Variant hunters may take a different approach. CollecticonToys itself has put this find up on their site to sell, for anyone wanting to own it.

What do you think? A different packing run? Or just one of those strange things life throws out now and again? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!
