Unknown Classics Optimus Prime Redeco Discovered - Canceled? Upcoming?

While we haven't had much coming from Ebay seller lena81822 lately, it seems like at least tonight they're making a quick comeback. Among their listings are a few copies of a new - or at least previously unseen instance of the 2006 Classics Optimus Prime mold. This one is distinguished by a giant Autobot symbol on the windvane in a layout not seen in any variety of the mold before. 2016 marks the tenth anniversary of the mold's debut - could this be some kind of "final shot" to commemorate it? For more about the deco and all the photos, keep reading!

While the truth of the purpose of this instance of the mold is anyone's guess right now, one thing that may stick out are the side panels being clear plastic. That may be indicative, but probably not how many people would tend to suspect. Those parts are on the same sprue with the truck's windshield, and are routinely cast in whatever clear color is chosen for the windows - the difference is that until now (barring the occasionally fully translucent example of the figure) the panels get painted over to blend in. That step has been skipped on these pieces. Whether that's by design to make it distinct, or because these are not fully complete samples (despite other paint applications being present) we really have no way to know right now.
