Thanks to the impressive detective work of our very own TFW2005 staff member Black Convoy, we have more information about the upcoming re-release of the Transformers 2007 Leader Optimus Prime figure. He was able to track down the first in-package image of Prime courtesy of Tfcn賽博坦新聞台 on Facebook.
According to the packaging, it appears this re-release will be part of a sub-line called “Transformers Tribute” and features new artwork of Optimus Prime as well as a 10th anniversary sticker.
As we previously reported, this figure is based on the original release of Leader Class Optimus Prime from Transformers 2007, but has additional paint apps and extensive chrome work added to really give Prime a premium feel. It does not however feature the remolded weapon or head from the 2007 Premium Optimus Prime.
Does this figure strike a nostalgic chord with you? Did you miss out on this figure the first time around and are thinking about picking up this improved version? Feel free to sound off in the ongoing discussion on the TFW boards.
Update: The same Facebook user has also shared the back of the box.
