    I detest Energon Optimus Prime. In my opinion, it is a lackluster rendition of the famous True Autobot Leader (yes that was a shot of Rodimus Prime…I mean Rodimus Major… I mean Hot Rodimus or whatever they call Hot Rod now) that we all know and love.

    In 2006, I saw the leader class version with the drones in KB Toys store on clearance for $15 and passed on it because of my disgust for the design. A long time ago, I promised my self that I will only own Energon Prime to form Wing Convoy! I recently purchased Energon Wing Saber and acquired prime just to find out that powerlinx prime is different from leader class prime. Now I have an Optimus that I never wanted and I still can’t form Wing Convoy! Thus MY FRUSTRATION!

    Well, he can use the legs and the arms, if you're creative.

    Sorry, dude. In these days of INTERNETS there is no reason not to do the research before you buy. You got pownt. Track down an Ultra Prime and revel in the glory that is Fatimus.

    You know I saw a picture of them next to each other and assumed that the smaller was the deluxe version rather than the leader class. I thought that the powerlinx version that came from the two-pack with megatron was a way to get Fatimus with out his drones!

    Why would Hasbro choose to pack leader Megatron with deluxe Optimus?

    Yes hes a bit tubby, but he still looks good in the combined modes, which is why he is tubby in the first place. But well, hope you can find the normal one, cause the fight mode with wing sabre rocks.

    I thought Super-PRIME with the drone limbs was rather good (at least compared to the fat stand-alone figure).

    LMAO!

    Nice....

    But I have to ask, Are ye upset over the mouth thing that always gets people rilled up? I'm kind of "m'eh" over the figure... looks great in the combined modes, and still kind of holding back ont eh omega combo as it just looks like Kibble city... and normally I can deal with a lot of kibble.

    I actually wished I had the version with the mouth when I made that comic. It looks more "Fat Bastard" than the mouth plate version. When I bought the toy, I purposely sought out the face plate version because I'm on the whole "Prime shouldn't have a mouth" side of things.

    I dunno, I don't think Energon Optimus Prime would play Frustration. I picture him as more of a Hungry Hungry Hippos kinda bot.

    Hmmm. I suppose I must be at the ultimate lowest level of utter stupidity as well, because until this thread I didn't actually realize there were two versions of Energon Prime at all.

    Energon sorta came and went before I got back into Transformer collecting, and I've never bothered to go back and learn each and every figure from it. It's not my favorite line (despite all the G1 homages) because so many of the molds seem crippled by the powerlinx gimmick. And I kept reading all the negative feedback on here about "Fatimus Prime," so for a long time I ignored him all together.

    But you know, I just bought him from another member here on the board, and he's really not as bad as people say! Maybe my expectations were just ridiculously low. I got the version with the mouthplate and the combining drones; I guess that's, what, Leader Class Prime? I can't keep all the marketing buzzwords straight. Powerlinx, Supercon, Ultra, whatever. Anyhow, his little drone limbs, while clashing in color, are actually quite cool! And the figure itself is solid and beefy. I prefer him to big Armada Prime, he just feels better-made and is more poseable.

    Anyhow, that's all.... just wanted to speak up for us Stupids. :)
