Already well acquainted with the larger world of Transformers thanks to a number of live action movie series figures, ThreeA is announcing today the first entry in a new Generation One themed line. Of course the debut figure is Optimus Prime, as if anyone would ever expect differently. Plus it's already planned to see an Ultra Magnus variant, and an exclusive Nemesis Prime edition.
ThreeA has released a statement about the new project along with image compilations of a prototype and a digitally colored version to show what the final product will look like - keep reading!
Hasbro and 3A proudly present; TRANSFORMERS GENERATION ONE (TFG1)! Ashley Wood and the development team at ThreeA are redesigning and building licensed stylized premium collectibles from Hasbro’s classic toy lines.
For TFG1, Ashley Wood and the development team at ThreeA have gone back to the original 1980s animation models and toy lines for inspiration. Maintaining the delicate balance between these characters’ distinct appearances while restyling their designs with ThreeA’s fresh approach has been both a challenge and a delight.
The first release in the epic collaboration between Hasbro and ThreeA features the iconic Leader of the Autobots, OPTIMUS PRIME! Optimus Prime stands approximately 16” (40.64cm) tall and bears a newly designed brawler-esque physique. Optimus Prime also features an array of diecast parts, heavily weathered paint detailing, and full range of articulation - including opening Matrix Chamber with the Matrix of Leadership. G1 Optimus Prime comes complete with Energon Axe, and his iconic Blaster.
TFG1 Optimus Prime will come in three editions – OPTIMUS PRIME, ULTRA MAGNUS EDITION, and the BAMBALAND.COM EXCLUSIVE NEMESIS PRIME EDITION.
