2005 Boards member xterry has shared with us a magazine scan showing what the upcoming Leader Class Dark of the Moon Striker Optimus Prime will look like. Striker Optimus Prime is a remolded version of Revenge of the Fallen Leader Optimus Prime, with a new blaster and a shield. The shield appears to form part of the front of the truck in vehicle mode, and is also stated to form a part of this toy’s “Stealth Force” mode. It looks like the swords from the previous version of the mold are going to be absent, however.
Also on the scan are first images of what looks like a third exclusive MechTech weapon campaign. As before these are for spending 3’000 yen or more on Transformers Dark of the Moon merchandise, and the campaign launches on 1 October – stay tuned for more information.
UPDATE – Takara-Tomy have updated their official product page for Striker Optimus Prime with high-resolution pictures of his three different modes – including our first look at his Stealth Force mode. Click on the link above to check them out.
