    Who do you think would win if they fought each other? I'm going for the movie Prime because he is quite a god damn good fighter.

    I'm thinking G1 Optimus will win.

    Peeling Movie Optimus' skin like an onion shouldn't be too hard.

    G1 Optimus did fall from orbit after taking a starship blast and not get a scratch.

    Movie Optimus lost his mouth plate after taking a kick to the side of the head.

    There is nothing, and I mean nothing, about the Bayverse look that appears "tough" to me. It looks like pieces can, and do, be rather easily broken/knocked/torn off. At least G1 Prime looks like a solid, imposing figure.

    I like them both but I just think that Bays Prime is not only cooler looking than G1 Prime but more brutal.

    This should be fun.

    But I'll go with Movie Prime, who is extremely vicious, fast, and brutal in battle. His strategy is to be so fast, his opponent doesn't have an opening or opportunity to strike. And it's worked damn well with everyone except Sentinel, and by the looks of it Lockdown.

    I love both of them though.

    Lets go ahead and say it: Movie Optimus is not a bloodthirsty maniac with a face-fetish. Nor is G1 Optimus a weak, cheap 80's cartoon leader, nor is he the perfect Optimus either. So please don't devolve into that argument, especially over Movie Prime.

    Movie Optimus may be a Mortal Kombat fighter, but he's barely armored at all. As long as G1 Optimus keeps his distance and sticks to his cannon, he wins.

    G1 Optimus did find it boring to take on only 3 Decepticons, and took on all of the Decepticons in the g1 Movie

    But Movie Prime did also like slaughter the Cons in DOTM, and is the first Prime to totally own and then ride Grimlock.

    G1 Prime did however say "boobies" and sorta-kinda had sex on a children's show and got away with it. (although I'm not sure if this helps)

    Movie Prime is more violant.

    Both have died and come back to life.

    I'd call it a tie.

    Close-quarters, Movie Prime will win. Dude's more agile, hits fast, hits hard and has no qualms about throwing a sword into the other guy's leg and then pulling the hooks out while the foe's still recovering.

    Like Hot Shot said, if G1 Prime can keep it at a distance, he's certainly got a better shot at winning with that kick-ass Ion Cannon, but if Movie Prime closes the distance, he's in trouble.

    'Course, doesn't matter anyway, since if either of them die, they'll just come back to life.

    Oh boy, I have a feeling this won't end well. Both Optimus Prime are different characters G1 Prime he is noble, caring, but he is to goody too shoes and would never pull the trigger (Ref: TF:TM) Althought Movie Optimus, that's another story, he is more bad ass a true leader and he is willing to put his life on the line to save the planet and save it's population, he took down 3 Decepticons in ROTF before getting killed by Megatron, comes back kills both the Fallen and injures Megatron. in DoTM he takes out almost the entire Decepticon army single handedly, took out Shockwave, the Driller Killed both Megatron and Sentinel Prime with one arm, that's true bad ass

    The idea of two non-Shattered Glass Optimus' (Optimi?) fighting is quite frankly laughable, they would clearly have a race. In which case I think Movie Prime is probably the fastest.

    Absolutely this.

    G1 Prime can dish it out AND take it.
    Bay Prime can just dish it out.

    Bay Prime kills tho.
    If G1 Prime can rise from being a children's star then he just might be able to take Bay prime.

    Just might be.

    Bayverse Prime's obsession with hand to hand combat and brutality would be his downfall.

    G1 Optimus would just stand a few yards away and shoot him. His face would stay untouched...

    Joking aside, G1 Optimus is a G1 Transformer. They can take anything short of a f*cking nuke. Bayverse Transformers are tinfoil sculptures.

    G1 Prime doesn't always stand back and shoot. In TF:TM he beats Megatron in hand-on-hand combat. In that fight: he dodges Megatron's blast and runs to him and punches him before he gets another shot off after getting speared in the abdomen.

    Prime also upper-cuts Megatron who is flying down upon him after he has been sliced in the same wound as before. Then flips Megatron off of him.

    And even before all this happened, Prime rolls into autobot city, obviously in truck mode, and still gets the decepticons to run from him. When they make a stand against him, he flips through the air, lands, and guns them all down. So Bayverse Prime isn't the only one to show acrobatic moves.

    He also used his energon axe in that episode as well. G1 Prime is not stranger to close-quarter combat.

    Is this a battle between who is the better character or fighter.

    Fighter - Movie Optimus Prime

    Character - debatable.
