    As I understand it, Energon Leader Optimus Prime came in two variants: with mask and without. Which is more rare, and which came first?

    I don't know for sure, but It's an educated guess that the version 'with mouth' is the rarer, as it was replaced with the 'full mask' version fairly quickly (and never in that form in Japan)

    Yeah, mouth version is rarer. It was replaced pretty quickly after the fandom railed against it, and along with that version never being released in Japan, the plate version had a second release in the US in red Powerlinx packaging that was the same toy.
