Hasbro's SDCC Teaser - Optimus with Axe
I'm skeptical, doesn't seem like any of the silhouette really matches up to him.

I wonder if it has anything to do with this "Evergreen Generations" thing we saw ages ago and that this is supposed to be *the* quintessential, gimmickless Optimus Prime mold...
Probably not, if only because Evergreen Optimus has very tall knee thingers.

If you didn't think there was going to be an Optimus Prime at the launch of a new line, and that he somehow wouldn't look really geewunny I've got a space bridge to sell you.
Unless it appeared on-screen like BB, Wheeljack, or the Tetrajets, I expect their idea of Cybertronian modes will basically be Earth modes with smaller windshields and some cyberglow lines.

*Record scratch* *Freeze frame* Yup, that's me, Bumblebee. I bet you're all wondering how I ended up looking like a silhouette teaser of yet another G1 Optimus. I would tell you, but I've been re-booted so many times even I don't know who I am anymore.

I'm going to be kind of disappointed if Optimus' new figure every year is just G1 1984 Optimus' robot mode in the most complete literal sense every damn time. Like... you guys can change up the body. Seriously, we'll still know who he is just by the helmet.
Hasbro had something about moving to the aesthetic the whole world likes. I forget the wording. But I assumed they meant the movie look, somehow adapted to tetrajets. Instead this looks like Sunbow G1.
Did we just completely forget that the Transformers franchise has been run by the seemingly 80s-obsessed transplanted G.I. Joe crew for nearly 4 years now?
I'd love something truly fresh, but then, I'd also love western releases of the Beast Wars Masterpiece line, and as long as John Warden and Co. are in charge, I doubt either are gonna happen...
