From what I have been able to piece together, the event is known as "A Railway Story in the Sky" and heavily focuses on trains with a somewhat nostalgic eye.

As a follow up to his in box photos of the Cyberverse Deluxe Class figures, fellow fan Kenneth Y. was kind enough to snap some quick photos of Optimus Prime out of package! These photos show off the figure's various features including a Matrix inside the chest and the use of his "Blast Effect". There is also a surprising amount of articulation on this figure allowing for some really dynamic poses!
