    We have now seen Optimus kick butt in 5 movies. However, there have been two distict versions of him. The original Trilogy version and the Knight version.
    Which rendition do you think is the strongest? If they were to face-off, which would win?

    Please consider Original Prime's battles starting at Bonecrusher and ending at Sentinel Prime.

    Knight Prime starts with Galvatron and ends with Quintessa.

    Based on technique and strength, who would win if they fought each other?

    Okay, if we're going balls deep with this does the original trilogy prime get to use his trailer? If so, its over for TLK Prime. Because at least that Prime had an arsenal at his disposal with the trailer doubling as weapons platform AND a jetpack with two giant guns to take down enemies from the skies. Although I screwed up and voted for knight Optimus, I think in terms of sheer firepower and abilities OG Optimus takes this W even in the hand to hand categories, having multiple combat weapons at the ready (dual energon swords, the rare battle axe, that hook, those cyber brass knuckles) to completely decimate foes. Original trilogy Optimus wins honestly.

    But if you look at how he really uses it, it comes off like a double jump(in combat situations that is) and he doesn't have anywhere near the fire power during flight

    Votes can now be changed.

    As for the weaponry, it's only fair not to pull any punches. O.G. Prime used his trailer arsenal, but Knight Prime's weapons themselves transform. (like his shield/blaster)

    OG Prime's forrest battle in ROTF, and rage scene in DOTM were very cool.
    Then again, so were Knight Prime's Shanghai Charge In AOE and Infernicons fight in TLK.

    I wonder which Megatron would win?

    It's the same Optimus isn't it? But I think he got a major powerup and flight ability in AOE.

    Original trilogy Prime.
    First movie aside, it seems the only true way to stop him is to kill him. You can shoot at him, blow him up, cut his arm off, etc. but if you don't kill him, he's going to keep getting up.

    Knight Optimus, on the other hand, was basically paralyzed after Lockdown fired two missiles at him. Lockdown could've killed Prime right then and there if he didn't have orders to capture.

    I think Knight Prime is way more refined in combat, you can really see Prime's growth in fight style movie after movie and TLK (even AOE) Prime is the better moving one during battle. With weapons though, the original one is going to win anyway, it is literaly a one robot-army, TLK and AOE is more hand to hand combact focused.

    Original Prime with sword and axe VS TLK Prime with sword and shield = TLK Prime win.

    Old Optimus gets his trailer? Does that mean new Optimus gets his Grimlock?

    If we're talking just weapons that come out of his main body, I'd say new Optimus still. He's got a big ass sword and a big gun shield too. He still has his energon blades as seen in Aoe. If he kept those in his body upgrade, I'm sure he kept most (if not all) of his other weaponry as well. Old Optimus is a kibbly mess (I love the design, but its true). He has so many little parts that Knight Optimus could grab and rip off while Knight Optimus is far sleeker, so old Optimus wouldn't have that same advantage. I also get the feeling that new Optimus is more agile. And he can fly.

    New Optimus is an upgrade. That's what he was meant to be. Logically, he has the same weapons as before but now he has more. He has more abilities and his body is advantageous if they're gonna go for the whole dirty fight thing that movie Optimus so loves.

    They're both the same guy just with a different look. They'd really be pretty even though The Last Knight version has had a little more experience. That being said if he were to win a fight against his past self then he would never exist to have the fight with himself in the first place. I'm not even going to get into whatever messed up time travel plot would cause him to fight himself in the first place. Just basically there is no winning a fight with yourself.
