    so ive been thinking: if you could change one thing about leader prime, what would you pick? hes a very cool figure (probably my favorite transformer i own) but if i could do something, id add a voice thing, so when he clips onto jetfire he says "lets roll!"

    fix the arm issue. ie the hood parts & swords on the arms and not allowing the arms to site straight unless you move em in an odd way

    I'd give him more voice clips. Maybe rotate through 3..."I am Optimus Prime," "I'll take you all on!" and "Give me your face!"

    Some of the transformation for 1 and the second would be the mode into which he goes with jetfire.

    Lets not forget the leg wheels. They need to all be on his legs, not two hanging from his waist. And articulated hands.

    More moving parts and pieces for a more complex transformation. Arm blades that pop out then slide out instead of rotate out (in essence, they stow in the arm). Buster Prime smokestack gun. Sliding faceplate. More phrases than just "I am Optimus Prime."

    I'd pay more for that.

    Ditto, especially the part about the retractable blades.

    Simplify the transformation, there has to be a way yo make it look just as good and not be a pain in the arse to get back to truck mode! and add the gun and additional soundclips

    As stated, the blades and the hip wheels. I don't know what, but I would love it if Optimus wouldn't inform me of his name 27 times while trying to transform him. He needs either more quotes, a less touchy mechanism, or something.

    Also, while I like what they did with his chest, I'm reminded what my friend said the first time I transformed his OP. He said that "If you transform him correctly, you're never allowed to transform any of my other transformers ever again". And he was right. I don't like having to yank parts out.

    Ditch the lights and sounds, ditch the swords.

    Less is more.

    better locking mechanism to allow more arm poses without them becoming unlocked, also since he has a voice chip, let give him some phrases.....i mean...we know who he is, he doesnt have to keep saying it.....like. "give me your face" "autobots role out" "in our darkest hour" "make me a sandwhich, bitch"

    i didnt read the other posts til after i posted....im glad im not alone on the sound and blade things....i like the ideas bout the gun and face mask too, transformation doesnt bother me and im not sure whats wrong with the hips...

    Make a completely new mold. That figure is a piece of garbage.

    Realistically, I'd want either the arm blades smaller, or clip on so when they are not flipped out the don't hinder articulation.

    Fantasy, I'd want working exhaust stacks. :)

    Have the swords be removable. That's really the only issue I have with the mold.

    Take the battery pack out and engineer that area to compress from back towards front so that torso becomes thinner and closer to the ILM model. Oh, and articulated hands. But that's pretty much it. Frickin' awesome figure as he to stands to be honest. I heart him very much.
