Hong Kong ACG Transformers exhibition: Flame Toys Victory Saber, Masterpiece, and… Bumblebee movie Optimus Prime?!

The TFND Facebook group reports that the Hong Kong ACG exhibition show brings us a slew of sweet displays featuring upcoming Transformers. However, a surprise reveal takes the cake: featured in Takara packaging, what looks to be like an upgraded Evasion Optimus Prime design, to tie in with this December’s Bumblebee movie!
Flame Toys has a great-looking Kuro Kara Kuri line Star Saber and Victory Leo pair that seems to actually form Victory Leo. Other Furai models on display include Devastator, Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream and Optimus Prime, SD models for Soundwave, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Megatron — and what seems to be a Kuro Kara Kuri Shattered Glass Drift!
There’s also a display featuring the upcoming Golden Lagoon releases of Starscream, Optimus Prime, and a three-pack of Beachcomber, Perceptor, and Seaspray, as well as upcoming Masterpiece figures Shockwave+, Prowl, Shadow Panther and Cordon.
The new Optimus Prime seems to be an all-new Leader class mold using the G1 cab/movie robot mode blend “Evasion” design debuted in Age of Extinction. Time will tell if we see a similar or counterpart release stateside, whether in Studio Series or in another format.
Which of these upcoming releases is your favorite? Do you think Hasbro will get a release of this new Optimus Prime out too? Join the discussion on the Allspark Discord server, in the Allspark Facebook group, and on the Allspark forums!
