Autobase Aichi has posted new images of Kotobukiya's upcoming D-Style Convoy model kit, due out in January 2015 for a price of 3240 yen. There are a lot of SD Optimus Primes, but what sets this

Thanks to Autobase Aichi we have have yet more images from the Japan Model Hobby Show 2015 that was going on this week in Japan. Get a look at more new Transformers products images of the T-Arts PlayStation Optimus Prime along with the previously revealed Sega Genesis Megatron. Also shown was the Age of Extinction Optimus Prime Dual Model Kit and the Kotobukiya D-Style painted Optimus Prime and prototype Megatron figures. Finally, we get a preview of the Kotobuikya Z Prime 1/72 Model Kit.

That's pretty impressive, considering the size of those forearms! Keep reading to see the photo!
