Alongside clear Optimus Primal, a loose G2 Groove has been listed on Ebay from the same seller who sold a near-complete G2 Stunticon set recently.

The seller also notes he has a G2 Blades to be sold soon, but no other Protectobots, unfortunately. Keep reading to see all the images of the delightfully orange figure!

Whether this was a typical test shot piece or possibly had another intent behind it, it definitely stands out ...by being almost invisible! Keep reading to see the pictures!
