Generation 2 Laser Optimus Prime, Trailbreaker to be released in Generations / 2010 Main Line

Laser_Optimus_Prime_2_

The latest Transformers Collector’s Club Magazine might feature Wreck-Gar on the cover, but subscribers are now getting their copies and there are even more surprises inside. In this issue, the Collector’s club pulls out all the stops and shows off:

Wreck-Gar in both robot and motorcycle mode
Perceptor
Scourge
Turbo Tracks

All of whom we have previously seen (well, except for Wreck-Gar’s motorcycle mode).

However, the TFCC magazine also shows off a couple of brand new, never before seen toys – the first is a Legends Class toy named Trailcutter, who is an update of Generation 1 Trailbreaker with a lawyer-friendly name change. Yes he might only be a Legend, but at long last, Trailbreaker gets some modern line love!

Then comes the really left-field reveal. Yesterday we reported that a Walmart computer listing had a Deluxe Class Optimus Prime among the other toys listed. Well, that mystery has now been solved – coming soon is a new Deluxe Class rendition of Generation 2 Laser Optimus Prime. It’s described as looking just like the original (pictured left) but without the cheat on the chest windows, and naturally comes with a sword. No pictures are available just yet but once they become available through official channels we’ll update you here on the TFW frontpage.

Also revealed in this issue, and it’s ironic that he’s the footnote in an awesome news story given that he’s pretty awesome in his own right, is that Masterpiece Rodimus Prime will be seeing a US release – without his trailer. He’ll be a store exclusive and might come with some new accessories to balance out not having the trailer. Even so, US owners who cannot import the Japanese release – or who never cared for the trailer to begin with – can own this excellent update of Hot Rod and his Matrix enhanced alter-ego.

These images come from the Transformers Collector’s Club Magazine, and the only way to get to see them is to be a subscriber to the club. Find out more on how to join and the benefits that come with it by clicking here to visit the Transformers Collectors Club Homepage.

    For anybody who has the magazine, what do y'all think about the new Generations G2 Laser Prime mold? It looks just like the original, but without the transformation cheat on his chest windows. As much as I love this Wreck-Gar, that Prime really has me giddy.

    Just skimmed through the TFCC magazine. Totally awesome. There were pics of:

    Wreck-Gar(Vehicle mode has some kibble under the motorcycle which makes his arms)
    Preceptor
    Scourge
    Tracks
    Gen 2 Laser Optimus Prime
    Legends Trailcutter

    Also, Rodimus Prime sans trailer was also confirmed.

    It's amazing. Really dead on, but modern. Because of the chest windows coming out of the long nose cab design and the sword, which is orange, it gives me a little bit of a Movie Prime vibe, too. But it is unmistakably Laser Prime.

    Hopefully FansProject is starting work on an oil tanker trailer as we speak.

    All look yummy. But personally I'm only interested in Scourge, Perceptor, Tracks, Jazz and Wreck Gar.

    The Gen 2 Laser Optimus Prime I'll wait for the RiD repaint.
    Now dammit, where's Kup and Arcee?

    Legends Trailbreaker, but trailerbreaker's name is kinda in name hell, so they compromised and did trailcutter.

    Well that is sure encouraging! Here's to hoping deluxe "Trailcutter" is on the horizon as well.

    In Universe 2.0 we got a Legends Jazz, and now there is a deluxe upcoming. Maybe they are using the Legends class as a "Preview" class. Or just a means to secure a name trademark, maybe.

    The flames also say "movie Prime". In truck mode anyway. 'Bot is 100% Laser Prime. I also love that the truck is sort of "rounded" in a way that fits in with the rounded look of the first Classics Prime. And thank God, the back of the truck looks like a back of a truck instead of robot legs.
