Direct from Takara Tomy’s booth at the Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong (ACGHK) 2018 we have a nice reveal for you. We have our first look at the Takara Tomy Voyager Optimus Prime from the Bumblebee: The Movie Toyline.
The images surfaced thank to TFND Facebook group. This figure is, in fact, a clever repaint and remold of popular Age Of Extinction Voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime. Besides the new paint and chromed parts, the figure now features a new head with a rotating mouth plate, a new rifle and several remolded parts like shoulders and lower arms, articulated hands, part of the upper thighs and wheels (he can accommodate two wheels on his thighs now) and several other details on the main torso.
Update: Thanks to Stanley Cheung from the Hobbymizer Hong Kong Discuss Facebook Group, we have a nice set of extra images. One of the pictures shows this toy next to MP-34s Shadow Panther (repaint of MP Cheetor) and confirms that this mold is not just a remold of Voyager Evasion Optimus Prime, but a bigger and improved mold that used Evasion Mode mold as a base for it.
A very nice improvement over an already great mold. It is still unknown if we would see a US release of this mold, but considering the new unified work between Takara Tomy and Hasbro, we hope he will see this toy in US stores in the near future.
You can check out the mirrored images after the jump and then sound off on the 2005 Boards!
