Rumor: Possible "Bumblebee" Movie Voyager Class Optimus Prime revealed

Multiple sources online have posted two interesting images that seem to point to the upcoming release of a Voyager Class Optimus Prime figure as part of "Studio Series". What makes this exciting is that this Optimus appears to represent the Autobot leader as he appears in the upcoming "Bumblebee" Movie! Fans have already seen Optimus Prime in this form via the "Bumblebee" trailers.

Please keep in mind there has been no official confirmation of this figure just yet so for all we know this could be an elaborate hoax. More news on this as it becomes available.
