Upgrade Commander have put up some new images of the upcoming Maketoy Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime upgrade set. These images show off the full extend of the upgrade, showing both the beefed up robot mode and the massive weapons harness that the rest of the trailer forms. A new feature is also revealed – a shot of the back of the robot shows a cable running from a backpack into the clear red sword – could this release have a light-up sword in the style of the original Laser Optimus Prime?
Click on the link above to check out the images. The page also gives a prospective price of 7,999 yen – about $100 at current exchange rates – and a potential release date of November. Maketoy’s own site though is now quoting 8,400 yen – about $110 – so it may depend on the retailer.
