But where is this figure going? Is it a Universe 3.0 release? Is it a Takaratomy Gentei exclusive figure? Is it some cheaply made, will-fall-apart-when-you-breathe-on-it knock off toy? Is it a random BotCon exclusive not part of the Generation 2 fiction (note: non-G2 Autobot symbol)? With the chrome hood it is assumed to be a Takaratomy type exclusive, as Hasbro shys away from using chrome on their toys.
We just don’t know. Come and speculate by hitting the discuss button!!EDIT: This mystery repaint has been spotted on eBay. Check out the auction, with many more photos, right here!
A further auction has also been listed by TFCtoy, which seems to suggest this is indeed a test shot and not a custom. Check out the latest auction here.
