ToyWorld has shown a prototype for TW-02, a product that a lot of TF fans have been wanting to see ever since it was teased in silhouette. Just like with Hedgemon\Megatron, they’re not fooling anybody with this design, as it’s clearly the recent and very popular IDW look for Optimus Prime.
Rumor was that HasTak had an IDW Optimus coming out, and fans wondered how it would compare to even the shape of ToyWorld’s teased offering. And then Hasbro showed it off, and the big reveal was very, very small.
Smaller than Cyberverse Commander class kind of small.
But hey, there was still ToyWorld’s TW-02!
And now they’ve shown it!
And some people think it looks boring.
What the heck is wrong with them? Perhaps it would help to see it in color.
This is, of course, an unofficial digibash (an image altered to produce a concept custom), but hot dang if that don’t look awesome.
ToyWorld’s TW-02 IDW Optimus may not even have its colors picked out yet, but if it’s even just approaching those, it’ll be something I want in my collection.
I know Classics Optimus Prime is a popular mold, but I’m not a fan of it. From the lazy arm kibble that can sort of pass as shields, to the complete lack of lower jaw (and thus, no heroic chin), it’s just not a great option for Optimus Prime. I currently have iGear’s PP01 standing in for Optimus in Classics, but its plastic is about as strong as cold butter and it’s a very G1 looking Optimus standing around a bunch of updated designs. It’ll do, pig, but it comes in second out of third.
And TW-02? So far it’s angling for first.
Did you like the digibash?
Do you not care?
Want to tell me I’m wrong about Classics Optimus Prime?
