    I'm a bit confused about this. So I understand that there's the Energon Optimus Prime that came in a two pack with Energon Megatron and then there's the other OP that came with it's trailer and the leg and arm attachments. The two OP are essentially the same right? I read on ebay that the two pack OP is a smaller deluxe version used for powerlinking with other Energon figures, so that means the OP with the trailer cannot?

    Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Two-pack Optimus is a Deluxe and can combine with other Energon Autobots like Hot Shot, Inferno, Rodimus, Prowl or Downshift.

    The Prime that came with a trailer is larger and can combine with the drones from the trailer, as well as with Wing Saber and Omega Supreme.

    If you're thinking about which one to get, go with the combining limbs version.

    It's one of the most underrated figures of all time, and very fun to fiddle around with.

    I agree. It's a fun figure, and actually looks pretty nice with the drone limbs attached.

    The big one can also combine with Wing Saber which makes him leaps and bounds better.

    this!

    Edit: I'd love this mold repainted/remolded into Thunderclash. The Botcon version don't do it for me

    I do recall everyone hating on Fatimus when the line was alive and kicking. I bought one anyways and I'm glad I did. In fact, I opened up all my Energon the other day and found that while some figures from that line truly do suck, there are quite a few gems.

    But I still like Galaxy Force a lot more.

    Yeah, he's actually really fun to fiddle with for some reason. He's my favorite Prime to stop motion too. Fatimus Ranger Prime does get plenty of deserved flack though.

    The deluxe one is hideous when attacked to anything else. I mean, anything that gives us this needs to be shot in the head:

    Fatimus Prime rules. Much better than Armada Prime, and his combined mode is better than Cybertron Prime's. Mine was worth every penny I paid for him.



    Ok, ok. I got mine free (along with Energon Tidalwave and Armada Thrust), but he's still cool.

    OK, I will need a more in deep explanation of this statement, because I have both side by side in fron of me right now, and I dont see E. Prime being cooler nor better than C. Prime in any way.

    Fattimus is pretty cool. His drone limbs are a lot of fun to fiddle with.

    I don't like backpacks being touted as a "combined mode."

    I always quite liked him. Broke one of the chest doors on the larger one when he fell off a shelf in combined mode with Wingsaber, but a couple of months ago picked up another Optimus from a car boot sale for cheap in really good condition missing only his gun and ear pieces and swapped those from my broken one. And now I've also got two sets of vehicle limbs so mine can have matching arms and matching legs. :) 
    Also got the Deluxe two pack MIB, but picked up a spare Optimus of that from a car boot sale as well.

    I like car boot sales. :)

    I don't mind trailers becoming backpacks since I've never liked the fact of having a trailer just sitting around doing nothing or transforming into a "base".

    But Cybertron Prime's combo with Wing Saber is awesome too. Although I do like E. Prime I love C. Prime much more.
