Movie Trilogy Optimus Prime with Trailer in Package Images

Trilogy-Optimus-1

We’ve got something cool now – our first look at the Transformers Movie Trilogy Optimus Prime with trailer in package, coming to you via this Ebay auction. This Optimus Prime, a redeco of the Deluxe class toy with the trailer from the Transformers Chronicle reissue released in Japan, is set to be sold at approximately the Voyager pricepoint.

From these images, we can also see what the Transformers Movie Trilogy packaging will look like. It’s broadly a retooling of the Dark of the Moon packaging, in the same style as Revenge of the Fallen became NEST Global Alliance or the original Movie went to Allspark Powered. The main differences are that the line name is now merely “Transformers” and a callout on the box refers to it as the “Movie Trilogy Series”.

The packaging for this piece is pretty eye-catching, with the dark background drawing attention to the toy itself. It’s also packaged in vehicle mode, with the tractor trailer running the length of this long, narrow box, a nice callback – intentional or not – to the original Generation 1 Optimus Prime packaging.

    Well at least it's a sign the movie trilogy line isn't necessarily dead in the water yet.

    ...and i'm maybe clutching at straws......but i'm inclined to take the fact the packaging isn't really any different from DOTM packaging as a positive indicator for the last few
    toys that are in Limbo. IE: Packaging art only requires slight modification.

    Yep a good sign that other releases will be making it to us eventually.

    Well, this will make a toyfair a bit more interesting. Now we just need some proof that this will be a serious run of new figures, versus a smattering of repaints and DOTM toys that would have already been released if Hasbro hadn't screwed up.

    This makes me a bit more optimistic, but it's still a case of wait and see. Especially considering how badly DOTM fell short vs. ROTF.

    An Optimus Truck at anything less than Voyager class bugs me, the trailer looks pointless............ Yet somehow the packaging makes me want to buy it.

    I think, Hasbro might prefer to just keep movie toys ticking over in anticipation of TF4. I doubt the avalanche of new toys we were (mis?)informed about is coming any time soon.

    This is exactly what I'm afraid of (or pleased about as my collection is entirely to big anyway).

    Well, if nothing else maybe we'll finally get Dino. There was strong evidence a deluxe mold did exist, and I still think the absence of a new HA toy in the first DOTM wave is a big indicator a HA mold exists as well. They've certainly had time to retool things by now.

    Well the packing isn't all that different which is sort of dissapointing. Still I'm eager to see what next year's New York Toy Fair will bring us.

    I'm STILL eager to see what new TFP toys will be coming!
