To our surprise, via 1 Toy Malaysia, we can share for you our first in-package images of the new Transformers Alternate Universe Optimus Prime.
This is our first look at the box of the previously leaked gray and black redeco of Earthrise Leader Optimus Prime with a new battle damaged head. The closed box resembles Optimus Prime chest with one broken window and the other one showing Hot Rod, Ultra Magnus and Arcee in a clear reference to Prime’s death scene from the G1 Transformers movie. It also confirms that the correct name of this release as Alternate Universe Optimus Prime. Curiously, the box only has the “Transformers” logo on it,
no indication if it’s part of Earthrise, Generations Selects or if it was supposed to be an exclusive or special release.
Update: Twitter user @chrisrtxv confirms that this figure is an Amazon Prime Day exclusive and it’s now up for pre-order on amazon U.S. via the wishlist method for $49.99 and expected for release in July 15th.
