Maketoys announces "An Angel is Coming"


Maketoys have posted on their website a pair of teaser images of another upcoming project with the tagline “an angel is coming”. The images shown hint at an unlicensed Nova Prime / Nemesis Prime from the IDW comics. The project is already at a prototype stage, and the prototype images shown indicate that the figure will consist of a core robot plus armor. The armor is an extensively reworked version of the Maketoy Battle Tanker, the core figure is a complete new design to interact with the armor though.

The text accompanying the update indicates that it will be a limited run item available exclusively through Maketoy’s own store, with more details to follow. The update also indicates that this release will be coming later this month.

    Wow. That's no upgrade set.

    There isn't a single damn piece from the RTS Optimus mold on that thing. It's BASED on it, but everything there is new.

    They are going to milk the battle tanker until the mold self destructs. Or till our wallet is dry.

    So uh, how many iterations of this trailer mold are there going to be? Looks like they just entirely ditched the Hasbro mold now and are making their own base figure.

    Nova Prime? Seems like the backpack isn't attached in the back shot and goes with the whole angle vibe. Kinda looks bad in vehicle mode from the back. "Cybertronion" doesn't save this one from all the crap sticking out of it.

    VERY interesting... it's a completely new sculpt that shares engineering with RTS G2 Prime.

    Even more interesting - looking at Don's concept art for Nova Prime, it's clearly the same altmode (there's only a few small differences, but otherwise it's recognizably the same vehicle) but the robot mode is different.

    EDIT: Found a pic of it online - it's clearly Nova Prime's altmode, down to the armored up mode chest being on the back of the trailer.
