    Well, the Masterpiece version has the split open chest that reveals the Matrix. I don't believe there's a version of the original Optimus Prime toy mold that splits down the middle though. Maybe someone else has more insight on the topic?

    Hybrid Style prime does it too. There's no version of the original G1 mold that does it.

    Ah, I see. Between the Junior and the Faith Leader.

    Hrm, doesn't ring a bell.

    Not the recent upgrade set, that's for sure. That set did nothing to change his chest mechanics.

    He has a couple of other customs in that pic; oversized G1 Prime, oversized WST Prime, oversized Robot Masters Prime, etc.

    Cool line up though!

    P.s. I know I shouldn't be talking, but holy Masterpiece Prime army, Batman!
