    Like WJ said to Hastak we can copy your stuff & make it better and goes on and on and on..blah..blah..blah..blah.

    It goes on for eternity.

    I'd love to get this, but that unpainted grey bottom feet is an eye sore in vehicle mode, has given me pause.

    For me this isn't a case of how good this version of the toy is vs a 3rd party etc. For me the reason I want this toy is I've been looking for a Toy to use my MP-10's trailer for years on the display while the cab is bot mode with my other MP's.

    This is it for me, it's G1 enough to match up nicely with the trailer. I might buy 2 and hope there is some shapeways mod later that allows it to also use MP Prime V3's trailer.

    Can anybody tell for sure from the picture if he'll be old leader size or new leader size? (AOE and TLK). He's a definite buy at old leader and MP size. New leader goes with nothing.

    Based on the size difference between the two Primes, I'd say new leader size.

    All the engineering in the world couldn't get his windows to line up. I'm still really feeling this, but if the white plastic is final, it's begging for an ink wash.

    Ooh. Oof. He's a biggun'. That's MP-10's trailer he's pulling, there. Well, that sized me out. I have no use for that in my collection, unfortunately. Dang it, I was really looking forward to him, too. =\

    The pic of him standing next to the original Voyager Class Evasion Mode Optimus Prime makes it pretty clear he's current Leader Class height. And that doesn't necessarily "scale with nothing". Considering Optimus is 28 feet tall in the movies, and First Trilogy Megatron is 35 feet tall (then becoming 30 feet tall when he transfers himself into the Galvatron drone body in AOE), then having a ROTF Leader Class size Megatron and AOE/TLK Leader Class Optimus Prime alongside this is a decent looking scale (yes, I know neither of those Optimuses...Optimi?...whatever, match up design-wise to ROTF Megatron, as Megatron had moved past his ROTF design by the time Optimus got his Evasion Mode and AOE/TLK body, but on a shelf with ALL Movieverse figures, it should be fine. Or even if you're one who likes to mix-and-match your favorite looks, that could work too I guess).

    Looks pretty cool, really like the mix of design cues, but words cannot express the hatred I have for those forearms. They are literally the worst thing about this mould in every iteration of it, it's an abomination.

    Why has this specific figure been the topic of so much discussion?

    Technically it's not. They copied the Wei Jiang version. It's almost come full circle

    They kinda copied a KO when they made this. It's the OS Evasion Prime by Wei Jiang

    I think WJ will release with this color scheme with additional paint apps for the unpainted grey plastic thighs. On top of that they will also add die cast too, as per their modus operandi.

    Then fast forward a few years later..TT will copy that & the never ending cycle continues (until people gets bored with it).
