TFW2005 member ruanxiaoguo has posted new, pre-production photos of his weapon accessories designed for ROTF and DOTM Leader Class Optimus Prime. The weapons, being produced by the new third party group Cubex, are highly screen accurate and styled after the transforming gas tank weapons used in the first two films.
The weapons are currently slated to be sold in pairs, in four finishes: Grey, Metallic Silver, Metallic Dark Silver, and Chrome. The guns are natively compatible with the Buster Optimus Prime
variant of the mold that already features detachable gas tanks, but additional parts in this set will allow any version of the Leader class mold to mount them. The guns can also be combined with the weapons included with the most recent DOTM Striker Optimus Prime
Site sponsors BigBadToyStore
have both opened pre-orders for these items.Staff Note: Please be aware that this accessory is not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara Tomy.Read Replies (0)

On a related note, are you curious about the backstory behind this black version of Optimus Prime? 2005 Boards staff member SydneyY has your back and has shared with us a translation of the bio:To save his comrades who are infected with Dark Energon, Optimus Prime had his body covered with Energon Defence Coating. This black coating is an alloy Ratchet created by analysing and converting MECH's equipment, and is capable of shielding Transformers from Dark Energon or any biological weapons such as a virus. Optimus' mobility is reduced due to the added weight, but this is the only form he can guard himself from Dark Energon... Read Replies (0)
