Possible Earthrise Leader Class Optimus Prime Repaint Leaked - SPOILER AHEAD?

Just in via Reddit user u/typenext, we have a VERY suspicious image of what appears to be a repaint of the Transformers War For Cybertron Earthrise Optimus Prime leader class figure without colors, AKA Dead Optimus Prime. Upon close inspection of the image, it doesn't look like a custom figure, but it could be.

However, IF it is real, could we see the Autobot Leader go into sleep mode in this series once again? If so, it would be most likely at some point in the Netflix War For Cybertron SIEGE show. What is kind of interesting, is this may indicate the old Nemesis plot twist may not be used even though we have seen a SIEGE Nemesis Prime Takara Tomy Mall exclusive. IF real, this may also have been an exclusive for SDCC, considering the timing.

As always, it is not official until it is official. So take this a rumor, or likely a fake, until there is some kind of official info to back it up.

I don't see this as being a normal retail figure, this is certainly not going to be targeted for kids mainly. (Not that kids can't have it.) Likely, this would either be a Selects figure, or some conventions will be doing it online, so this might be an online exclusive. I expect this could be released with SDCC if I could guess, much like the Ghostbusters Prime before.

I agree, SDCC has a tradition of doing repaints, and Nemesis Prime has been an exclusive before. What's probably put Hasbro in a pickle is a Dead / Sick / Sleep Prime figure is off-color (no pun) for time of a Pandemic. So it is curious what / IF they will make this aferall.
