    I ask this because technically in the cartoon he is optimus (should have never happened IMO) yet star saber has the optimus face and pretty much became the sole leader of the autobots in the series making him to me optimus prime more than victory leo. What's your take on this subject??

    He's not Optimus though.

    He's God Ginrai reborn.

    Ginrai being a human that through the power of the Masterforce combined with a Transtector (lifeless robot) that LOOKS like Optimus Prime (Convoy). The Transtector was originally designed to be Convoys body were he to be revived ( according to the manga).

    But they never got as far as to revive him using this body.

    That was in Battlestars.

    So no. For canonical reasons.

    I think neither of them is Optimus Prime, so I'm not satisfied with the available poll options regarding your overall question in general.

    He's not Optimus, he is Ginrai reborn. Ginrai was a human who jacked Optimus' new body, but was never in any way Optimus, so Victory Leo being Optimus makes no sense as they're not related at all.

    I am also not satisfied with the poll options.

    I DO CARE about the Japanese shows, DEEPLY, and therefore, in no way whatsoever do I consider Victory Leo as having anything to do with Convoy/Prime...

    Oh, bugger, I automatically voted "No" before reading the full sentence. Because I ABSOLUTELY care about the Japanese stuff, and he's NOT Optimus Prime, he's Ginrai. Victory Leo's got nothing to do with Optimus Prime.

    Like everyone else has said, God Ginrai is NOT the same character as Optimus Prime. The only similarity is the body.

    Nope and nope and nope

    Ginrai goes with Masterforce characters.

    Power Master Optimus Prime can go with the other Primes, and in case of point, my Nucleon Quest Super Convoy, DOES get displayed with my Primes, but they're different dudes, period.

    So no, The Viccar' never gets displayed near any Primes.

    To me, Ginrai was for all intents and purposes a new Optimus Prime for a new era - something along the lines of TFA's younger, more inexperienced Optimus Prime. My vote is therefore 'yes'.

    It's far deeper than those two choices I agree.

    he's ginrai in a new body, NOT optimus prime

    God Ginrai does not get put in a prime collection, only powermaster prime does, and that is with the apex armor

    Ginrai is a different character than optimus prime, anyone who says otherwise deserves to be forced to watch a collaboration of headmaster's wheelie and daniel's antics

    poll fails since i EXTREMELY care about the japanese series (that isn't headmasters), it is better than the american g1

    in fact, the "death of god ginrai" in victory is a WAY more emotional scene than the death of optimus prime

    No one was rude, or feeding their egos. They were just telling you how it is.

    Victory Leo is not even technically Optimus Prime, since the show and toyline he's in has him as a rebuilt Ginrai. Whether you care for the japanese series or not, you're talking about a character exclusive to the japanese series. He cannot be any version of Optimus Prime, in any shape or form or with any technicalities.
