    Movie Optimus: The true definition of awesomeness.

    TFP Optimus: Boring in most episodes.

    its hard to say and unfair, optimus did fit the design of G1 perfectly, while movie Optimus did fit the live action that optimus would suit in the real world. So the answer is? there is no better fit, because of what type of transformers G1 and the movie version it was.

    Neither of them are G1 Optimus. Why should they represent him?

    represent

    Almost got me with that trick question! The definitive Prime is G1 tv show Prime. He was a commander and one of the guys. He lost his temper sometimes, had a sense of humor, and was more relatable to his team. I enjoyed the 86 film where he was more grim, but turn that shit down sometimes; it kills morale!

    So, not by looks? But by characterization, actions and personality? Well, neither of them are G1 Optimus. They both have the sense of "stop the Decepticons to save the Earth"-thing. But they go about it in different ways. One is more driven to protecting the Earth by removing the threat completely. The other has a more passive approach to it.

    Also, I fear for this thread. It has the great potential of becoming the all-too-often-seen "Bayformers Optimus is a violent psychotic killer and TFP Optimus is a boring wuss"-argument. :confused2 

    Ding ding, we have a winner!

    Movie Optimus is a much better character than TFP Optimus. TFP Optimus just plain sucks.

    TFP OP: Good warrior, I bring a proposal to help eachother against the Decepticons. It stands to reas-

    I will take Movie Optimus over any substitute, least of all Prime Optimus who I swear is actually a robot. Like a duplicate robot. Like a... he's a fucking lump is what I'm getting at.

    I believe TFP Optimus is a better, closer representation of the G1 Prime while still having unique qualities that stand with the incorruptible whole of G1 Prime.

    I think what you're trying to say is that he smells and needs a shower.

    That's kinda an insult to G1 Prime. At least G1 Prime had a personality.
