BAPE X Transformers 2013 Red Camo Optimus Prime

logo

The third of the BAPE X Transformers Optimus Primes has been revealed. After a green Optimus and a grey Optimus, BAPE’s third Generation 1 Optimus Prime exclusive is a red version, apparently based on the BAPE MILO shirt. It’s a very red Optimus Prime – perhaps he’s caught a touch of the hate plague? It’s due for a release on Saturday 30th March 2013. Moreover, a 2 metre tall statue of Optimus Prime will also be on show at the BAPE store in Shibuya.

Check out the original page (in Japanese) at the other end of this link. There’s also some new licensed Transformers clothing – sneakers and shirts – for you to check out there.

    Kind of the point no? This has done them well so far.

    If you're going to redeco a figure as a promotion for your clothing store, what better one than the original G1 Convoy.

    A G1 convoy?? We can jolly well use MP01 mold or MP10 mold which is also can be a good representative for G1 Convoy

    Lot more expensive, and not as iconic / kitschy.

    I'm curious about this too. I could bat back a few answers to Steppers queries of why they keep using the original G1 Optimus Prime mold, that might be moot if the other two molds shown get used at some stage. A translation would be greatly appreciated but I won't hold my breath.

    The red colour scheme doesn't seem as loud - in these photos - as I might have otherwise thought. I only own the green camouflage version and to mea at least, that one pops visually.

    Hopefully, it has something to do with the rumored re-issue.

    I think it mentions a display at one of the stores of the first 5 leaders in G1, which would be Optimus, Rodimus, Fortress Maximus, God Ginrai, and Star Saber. So perhaps that's why they show those 3.
