    Dammmmmn that looks nice. As much as I love my old Movie OP...this has much better proportions. And I'd wager a very different transformation scheme.

    Optimus looks really good. I might actually get this Leader version instead of the inevitable Voyager class mold. Though if the Voyager combines with a Jetfire figure, and the Leader doesn't, that'll be the reason I get the Voyager instead. It does look like he has a bit of back kibble, but it doesn't look bad at all. Doesn't look as though we'll have to worry about a Premium version, even with accounting for how different the stock photos look compared to the actual product. I might actually end up buying three Leader class figures from this line. Optimus Prime, Jetfire, and Megatron (if they make Megs a Leader), or their inevitable Voyager class figures.

    Looks much better and closer to the movie than the first version. Glad I didn't buy the first movie prime. I hope megatron turns out as well.

    My initial feeling was slightly disappointed..I dunno, looking at the arm and back kibble it feels kind of weird (although the kibble does seem to represent the right parts on the cgi model :lol , maybe a bit too big?)...also, the arms are kind of weirdly attached to his chest...

    Still, I shouldn't bitch. I bet he looks awesome once someone snaps an out-of-package photo..and even though the TF1 Leader Prime was awesome, this one is indeed more movie accurate!!

    Very impressive, who'd have thought they could make such a difference with a remake.

    I was trying to find a way to post it... didn't want to post the image itself. Thanks for doing it anyway though.:eek: 

    Seibertron did put it up, but sorry if I'm breaking rules.

    Damn, I feel pretty stupid for double-dipping on the first movie's figure now... (original and Premium) :(

    That actually looks pretty nice. It looks like he may have some articulation. The first movie Leader figure was a brick-former.

    Huh?
    the first movie Prime had plenty of articulation.
    At least enough for it to not be a brick.
