There’s a release window for Kotobukiya’s Transformers Optimus Prime Bishoujo figure, which envisions the character as a woman in a similar outfit. It is estimated to appear in January 2023 in Japan. The official price is $149.99, and Sideshow is already taking pre-orders. The retailer is expecting the figure to ship outside Japan between February and April 2023. In addition, there will eventually be a Transformers Bumblebee Bishoujo figure too.
Here’s a new video offering a closer look at the Transformers Optimus Prime Bishoujo figure showing the character as a woman. It also shows how she looks wearing the optional battle mask head part.
Finally, here’s the teaser for the Transformers Bumblebee Bishoujo figure. There’s only a silhouette hinting at how she’ll look. However, we can see she’ll have the same horns and “hairstyle.”

There’s also one more figure in this collection coming. Megatron is on the way too. There’s no painted prototype for that one yet. However, an unpainted prototype appeared back in May 2022. She’ll be carrying a cannon in her pose.
