    Since I've pounced on all the other prelim designs he's done, why not one more?

    The Bad Flip Blog: Optimus Prime - Truck Mode

    Props dude, hopefully you can share more in the coming weeks leading up to BotCon. Especially the ones you told were "as-of-yet unrealized in-show". Sounds mysterious, sounds cool.

    This also strikes me as a better truck than what finally arrived; looks stylized without looking unrealistic. Also, can someone photoshop this with Sideswipe, Jazz and Ironhide?

    Not only is that more reminiscent of the original G1 truck design, but it also pays homage to the classics Prime which, IIRC, came out way before the movies.

    That looks ten times better than Prime Optimus' alt mode. The colour scheme is still bland, but the truck looks a hell of a lot more punchy and tough.

    Prime? Sure. Movie? Hell no. For one, the movie is a real truck, and a gorgeous one at that.

    I don't see anything wrong with Prime's final truck model, I actually like it better than this one. Looks a bit too stubby to me (but it's still helluva awesome, don't get me wrong here).

    I like this much more.

    This is exactly how I imagine a cool Generations Optimus Prime, that has a long nose truck mode and transforms into a robot mode that looks like G1 Prime. I would love to have that. Or IDW Prime ;) 

    However: This is sooo awesome.

    Love it! Wish they would have used that instead of what they ended up with.

    Couldn't this have worked for his 2.0 upgrade? It has the extra mass necessary for his new look.

    Cool looking truck.

    I don't' really have a problem with the model that the TV show uses though.

    This is way better than what we actually got! I hope they use this design somewhere down the road for a different Optimus.

    The one in Prime and the Movie look really weak compared to this....whoever makes the final decisions should be fired.

    The vehicle mode is quite similar looking to the Weaponizer toy.

    Agreed.

    I wish I never saw this now.
