    I am glad we finally got some images of this figure. I however am torn. I love the overall look but i think the chest looks very similar to Energon Fatimus Prime. I would love to see some clearer images to make a better decision. What does everyone else think?

    He looks like Armada optimus prime.

    Here's the CHUG for your comparison:

    He'll look great lined up alongside the rest of my G2 cast from this years Botcon! (not to mention next years TFCC G2 Dirge)

    It looks pretty awesome! It's a lot better than the last Classics Deluxe Prime.

    Also, it looks pretty good for what is essentially just a way for Hasbro to make another G1 Prime and also cash in on the popularity of the movie truck mode.

    I wish the Fatimus Prime wordfilter was still in place.

    It's just the angle of the shot. Hasbro wanted to avoid having a fake windshield for the chest like the original G2 Laser prime had. As a result we have a couple of posibilities:

    1) The Windshield portion sticks out further making him more of a Prime with boobs.
    2) He's mistransformed in the picture and the windshield can be pushed back to better line up with the abdomen.

    Energon Prime this is not!

    Um no... no it doesn't.

    I realize it could just be mistransformed or issues with the angle of this shot thats why i am saving my judgement till i see better shot or a video review. First impressions however i am not thrilled.

    You do know Energon Optimus was based off the typical Optimus design, right?

    Yeah, they're gonna look a little similar. If you mean G2 Prime looks fat, then, well, I have no idea where you're getting that from.

    Its more his slammin double Ds he is sporting. While energon OP was based on the typical optimus it was poorly executed. Based on the image of G2 prime it could be a swing and a miss.

    ... The Armada design was based on the Laser Optimus design. So he looks like G2 Laser Optimus Prime, which is what he is. He looks like himself.

    Can someone Photoshop this so he's wearing tight orange shorts and a Hooter's shirt?

    just sayin...

    seriously, i love the bot mode and it is really a decent tribute to the G2 LP mold.
    truck mode isn't a 10/10, but it works nonetheless.

    I like the mold, but I'll wait for the (hopefully) Obligatory Scourge/Black Convoy repaint. RID Scourge is in need of some love. I never liked Laser Prime, but loved Scourge's character on the show

    I think it looks pretty good. It will be my first (and probably only) Optimus Prime figure.

    Really?

    I don't see the resemblance (beyond the universal Optimus features of course)...

    Amazing a booby trap that actually captures boobies.

    OK I see it now.

    I guess it's good they're redoing him to scale better in with the rest of the classics gang.

    The only resemblance to Energon Prime I see is due to the chest frame having white. That's it. The chest and shoulders remind me more of Classics Prime..which is fitting, since Classics Prime was the form of G1 Optimus after G2 Laser Rod Prime, and this new 2011 Laser Rod, while based on the original G2, also takes influence from Classics Prime!
