is the cold and unusual Cybertronian leader that came before Sentinel Prime, as told in Spotlight: Optimus Prime

The new Matrix Case's look first appeared in The War Within vol 1.
Nova Prime begins here a new tradition, just in time for some of the events described in Spotlight: Galvtron

What is the sinister black shadow that accompanies the metamorphosis of the Goblet? Does it come from Nova Prime?
The Matrix Goblet will be restored by Optimus Prime: after the events of Stormbringer
and the beginning of the Interplanetary Cold War against the Decepticons, Optimus realizes how foolish and dangerous may be for him to carry the Matrix Case inside his chest. Not to mention the fact that the Artifact belong to the Cybertronians, not to a single mech.
Hence, the Matrix Goblet is stored in a most safe place, whose existence is considered a myth by the Decepticon. These events (that one day will become another Short Story) explain why Optimus had no Matrix Case within him in Escalation
The saga continues in Short Story: Throwdown
, Constant Moons: Paradise Lost
, Short Story: The Shape Of Things To Come
