Transformers GT GT Optimus Prime and GT Star Saber New Images

421696200A

Toys R Us Japan have updated their website with new images of the two upcoming releases in the Transformers GT series, GT Prime (Optimus Prime) and GT Saber (Transformers Victory’s Star Saber). The new listings show more pictures of the resin prototypes, this time showing both of the releases on their respective pages. The base body is a heavy remold of Alternity Convoy, basically replacing the Nissan GT-R alternate mode with the Super GT rally version. Comparing the pictures lets you take in the differences between the molds (the head molds are very similar, yet different – check out Saber’s ear antennae). There’s also art pieces attached to each listing showing the robots and the “race queen” figures that come with them, and our first proper look at the new weapons for both toys.

    I've never paid attention to this mold before, is that a car I see hanging off the back?

    These comments always make me chuckle. What do you expect them to do? It is a car that transforms into a robot. You are going to have pieces of car showing. Man, you must of really hated G1.

    Thanks for the pics-REALLY on the fence with these. Just know these are going to look friggin' glorious once the color images show up.

    Saber's headsculpt looks very Prime-like. If we didn't already know it was meant to be Star Saber, I don't think anyone would have guessed.

    Sorry but these molds have been used a bazillion times now. just because they gave the molds a retool doesn't make them cool.

    But oh well it is what it is. new heads look okay i guess.

    I love the chicks though.
