A Japanese fan has reviewed Advanced Series Armor Knight Optimus Prime on YouTube! AD31 has been the focus of a lot of attention this week, and with good reason. A refinement of the Age of Extinction Generations Leader class Optimus Prime, Armor Knight/"Saikyou"/Ultimate Mode Optimus Prime sports retooled parts to reflect the final render for TF4 Prime, plus a highly detailed deco and a face-swapping gimmick to give both masked and unmasked looks in a single figure.

Take as rumor for the time being, but jru42287 who has previously provided reliable information now reports finding Devastator listed in the inventory system at Toys R Us. While he could not share pricing at this time, it can reasonably be expected to be at least $100, and potentially a bit more besides with the Toys R Us "bump-up" practice. Our personal speculation puts this as the Metroplex-style big ticket item for 2015. If that turns out to be the case expect to see Devastator front and center at Toy Fair in February! Stick with us for more updates on this as they become available!
