    I'm just wondering if they'll release a version of Ultimate Optimus Prime without the trailer. It looks like a great mold (better than the regular voyager) and I would definitely get him if I didn't have to pay all the extra cash for the silly trailer. We will probably get a boatload of retools/reissues from the DotM line, so maybe this guy will be one of them. What do you think?

    Meh, I honestly think that the ROTF Leader Optimus mold is better looking.

    Considering the design in question, yes; it looks like a decent representation of Prime's CGI model. Better than the Movie 1 Leader, anyway.

    But no, I don't think it would work as a stand-alone figure. You can tell by the toy's design that it was made just for the trailer armor (larger chest, small legs, bulky arms), so on its own it would not fare too well.

    I doubt it'll be released separately.

    I also think it looks somewhat horrible. I will be purchasing Takara's Ultimate Optimus, as that set's core Optimus figure looks leaps and bounds more accurate to the DOTM model.

    A waste of a spot in any line if it's a voyager just get dotms mech tech voyager op. If it's a leader buy rotf leader op.

    I don't know. I suppose I just have horrible taste in Primes. :p  I still like him, though, truck arms and all.

    I hope it gets the MP treatment. Exact same figure but with die-cast and more paint apps.

    In Semi-Truck mode, it would look kind of creepy leaving his hands sticking out of his front grill like he's going to grab the car in front of him. :p  :D 

    What kills this mold for me are that his arms are horrble looking with the entire front end of his truck form just hanging there, tire and all. His legs are ridiculously thin, yuck.

    Hey, hey, hey, that's not cool. Movie 1 Leader Prime was badass when he first came out. He may be clunky and blocky, but he was wahy better than this so-called "Ultimate Optimus" when he was new. :p  Now Movie 1 OP's feelings are hurt and I have to try to make him feel better...

    I agree completely. :)
