Only a couple of days after Super7 released two teaser images, we now have the full details and in-box pictures of what is officially titled their A-01 “Dead” Optimus Prime Super Cyborg Action Figure and the Keshi Surprise blind box figures debuting at NYCC!
Relive your traumatic childhood memory with the NYCC 2018 Exclusive Transformers “Dead” Optimus Prime 12-inch Super Cyborg Figure. Dead Optimus comes with Ion Blaster, removable Chest Plate, in grayscale packaging to match the figure. We’re not crying, you’re crying.
The Super7 x Transformers collaboration continues with the debut of Autobots (Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Grimlock, Jazz, Ironhide, and Wheeljack) and Decepticons (Megatron, Starscream, Shrapnel, Soundwave, Laserbeak, and Shockwave) in 1.75″ Keshi Surprise form! Each set has 6 different characters in 4 bright colorways packaged in individual blind boxes that also includes an exclusive foil sticker of the character.
Super7 will be at booth #642. Are you attending the convention? Join in the discussion on the 2005 boards and stay tuned for our upcoming New York Comic Con coverage!
Thanks for the heads up on this. I didn't even notice my Super 7 email notification from last night. Ended up ordering it, but was hoping the apparel would end up on the site as well.
Available for add to cart:
Transformers Super Cyborg – Optimus Prime (black) (NYCC 2018)
s7 never said if these will be for sale after the convention? Is there any confirmation from them? Seems like they are avoiding the question. Was there a confirmation somewhere? Also is this the beginning of these things or did I miss some other=s from the older conventions? I'm thinking about starting to collect these things. I don't want to pay scalper prices if they will release these down the road. So confused now.

Transformers – Super Cyborg "Dead" Optimus Prime 12" Figure with removable chest plate (Grayscale figure and packaging). NYCC 2018 Exclusive Limited Edition. $75 each.
Damn it Hot Rod!
I don't know. I've never seen one before.
How big are these? I mean how tall? I saw the motu ones, are they 5 inches tall?
So can we buy this after thevcon on the site? Or do we have to get it at the con?
Is this news? ToyArk already posted it on their NYCC 2018 He-man Coverage (not specifically Transformers).

Super7 on Instagram: “We’re not crying… You’re crying… The Super7 x @transformersofficial Exclusive at @newyorkcomiccon! The Dead Optimus Prime 12” Figure is…”
Not necessarily, but I will say it's preferred. It's one of the reasons why I go for Marvel Legends, et al. over POP!s (that, and likenesses).
However, that's the good thing about collecting, there's many different companies producing stuff for every type of collector. I just think it's a shame that Super7 uses the licenses the way they do, because I would love to see them do for, say, M.U.S.C.L.E. what they're doing with Masters of the Universe.
Ohhh okay. Thank you for the explanation.
What is a sofubi?
So the only way you can enjoy a collectible is if it’s articulated?
Flynn has the Dead Prime and Keshi in hand:
Love Mazinger and Great Mazinger. Of course! Lol..
Yes, that metal force is expensive, but there's a KO that was like 40.00 back in the day. Had a chest that could pop off. Had a matrix that sucked, and was cheap. But still a cool item. I want to find that again.
There's no way to really tell now unless you have them still, no worries. Do you still like Mazinger Z &/or Great Mazinger, say in the likes of Soul of Chogokin or something more worthy of your action figure style? (Or the cartoon)
I actually just bought the SOC Mazinger DC (anime likeness molding?)
Additionally, and more on the point of this thread, the Optimus Prime pictured is the Metalforce Optimus Prime by Takara from 2002 IIRC, & has been #1 on my to get list for 15 years! Costs around $150.00 – ish on average, & I am not sure I wanna spend that much. Thanks for reminding me bro lol
