    I'm thinking of getting the TakaraTomy's version of Leader Class Optimus, the one that comes with the energon axe/sword...does anyone have him and if so is he worth it? :)

    its the same as the premium movie leader prime, cept it has chromed parts, which looks really nice, but I went with the premium version, cuz I know the chrome is gonna get scratched to hell, being on the bottem of his feet and all :p 

    but if you're never gonna touch it, it would be ok. Me, I like posing them and taking pictures and transforming them all the time, so I want ones that hold up.

    The TakTomy one looks way better than the Hasbro one. I imported it a few months ago and it looks really nice displayed in vehicle mode.

    However, as said before, the chrome ends up on his feet and may get scratched if you play with it too much.
    If you just transform and pose itevery now and then, and you put a cloth or something under his feet, his chrome should hold up well enough.

    My batteries are dead right now, but I found these (bad) pictures on my computer. It's how mine is displayed right now.

    Thanks, dude! The chrome does indeed give it a "posh" look! And I can see that indeed it can have scratches!

    i have the hasbro premium, which (as been pointed out repeatedly here) is the same as the takara, except for the chrome..i dunno if the chrome will get scratched that much, unless u really move it around,and i agree that it has a posh look, and well...it looks better..depends on wat u think...if i had the choice, i wouldve gone for the takara....but im happy with my hasbro premium, i love it :D

    Oh yeah, another difference between Hasbro and TakTomy is that the latter has extra paint apps on his shoulders and thighs. They're the same apps as on the original leader prime.

    I say go for the Japanese one!

    Those paint are more accurate to the movie as well. Not sure if it was mentioned but his "ears and cheeks" are painted silver too!

    Yeah, you're right. His face also has some extra paint.
    Oh and, whichever one you choose, make sure to buy a set of reprolabels for it!

    welll, you dont NEED them, but the stickers add some extra detail like flames on the arms and legs that aren't present on the toy, but are in the movie, etc.

    I got reprolabels for mine because they just make Leader Optimus rock! It took like three weeks for my stickers to arrive so be patient.

    Take a look at Seanlongs review and see what you think.
