Kind of hope he's just a new, simple voyager Optimus figure. I like the Classics one but if they could outdo it with a new Optimus without a gimmick and isn't a triple changer I'm into it. With how intricate and impressive Punch/Counterpunch looks I'd imagine they could do some impressive stuff with this.

Echoing Autobot Roadburn: if it’s a Voyager that looks good and isn’t gimmick-laden like the Prime Wars guys, sure. Even better if it’s a Megatron, then I can retire Titans Return Megatron (as good as it is, the Headmaster thing slightly bothers me).

Isn't that just the Leader POTP mold?

I don't think so. This one doesn't have as bulky of a backpack, his chest proportions look different (PotP Optimus has the huge chest windows), the arm panels have a different shape and his head is a bit different - this silhouette has a taller "mohawk" and the smaller inner antennae seem to have disappeared. These are things that could just be from different angles but it looks like a new mold to me.

I'm also just hoping for a new smaller mold with no gimmicks at this point but I could be wrong. We'll see in about a week.

Phew! I was kinda hoping we'd get some sillouettes of transformers before Potp was done. 1/2 through the year and I was getting worried.

I'm guessing possibly a Shattered Glass POTP OP? It makes fiscal sense.

Make a new mold of Optimus Prime - Profit!
Paint that mold black and sell it again - More profit!
Paint that mold purple and set it again again - Even more profit!

Well who wasn't expecting a op figure? Though I'm a bit torn between saying it's war for Cybertron and going the curveball route and saying they are besting takara to the punch and sayings it's the new mp op.

Oh gee, another Optimus Prime. Color me surprised. I will be floored to hear that there's a new Bumblebee toy in the line as well...

I was thinking it was the new MP prime at first but the handheld axe threw it off. It’d be cool if it was a voyager, I don’t have a CHUG Optimus yet and the TR one looks just ok.

I doubt this is a new mold, if they did this for SDCC, this would be amazing but I doubt it. I have Henkei Prime but its too small for current CHUG so my CHUG Prime is MakeToys Striker Manus and my Megatron is still Hegemon v2

This isn't an exclusive, it's a teaser for a new figure being revealed at SDCC.

I'm really surprised people would even entertain the idea that it's the new MP considering all the kibble on the arms and back. This is definitely a main line figure and since it's likely for War for Cybertron it may not even be a form we've seen before. The large flat panels on his back suggest he'll have a self contained trailer like PotP Prime, he still has smokestacks on his back, and that axe is MASSIVE, just look how far back the blade is from the handle.

Knowing how much Warden loves G1 I would really like to see his take on Prime's Cybertronian alt mode from the Marvel comics.

I don't think this is POTP Optimus (which is good because I really don't like that figure). Hopefully it's a new mold, as it doesn't match any figure I can think of. I hope it is a new voyager non-gimmicky Prime.

Don't think it matches any Optimii we've seen before.

The shoulders and smokestacks are not PotP.

The Knees have a pad shape, that isn't on any current Prime.

He's too wide to be TR, not large enough to be PotP, and the wrong overall shape for CW.

He's almost certainly a new mold, likely for War for Cybertron, that will be released in a premium version for SDCC, much like they did for the Matrix of Leadership Optimus Prime for SDCC 2011.

Whether it will be lavishly G1, or a modern interpretation remains to be seen.

I don't think it has wheels

Depending on how they are handling cybertonian alt modes this time round...prime may not need wheels if he's a hover truck ;-) think back to the original pilot of the g1 toon. Both bee and wheeljack turned into hover cars of sorts. They only got wheels when they were given earh alts.

I disagree about Punch/Counterpunch (I don't think that figure's very good at all) but a new voyager Optimus Prime with no triple changing or Titan Master or any other unnecessary gimmick might be nice. Classics Prime is still my G1 Prime representative on my shelf and yeah it's getting old but I just haven't seen anything better suited as of yet for that size class.
