    Of the size classes established in Cybertron-present, around what size class does OO/PP fall under. I know he'd be at least Leader size, but is he large enough to be a Supreme size? A friend of mine's cousin is giving it to him, and he was curious. I was as well, as I may look into the mold myself.

    What's your opinions on the figure itself as a whole?

    I'd put him at leader class myself. It's one of my favorite Beast Wars molds and definitely my favorite Optimus Primal, even though I don't usually go for those crazy proportions.

    It's leader, not supreme. I think back then they called the class "Super"

    Optimal Optimus was the first and last "Super" size class toy. Beast machines removed this class in favor of the bigger/more expensive "Supreme" size class.
    Oddly enough this means that the Primal Prime repaint is officially a Supreme as it was released in BM. Not sure, but it could be the only TF toy ever that was nominated different size classes.

    Looking at my shelf I wouldn't give it any more than Leader class as it's a good deal shorter than most leader Primes and not much more complex.

    That being said I absolutely love them!

    Edit: re-reading some stuff on this I think they actually kept the Super class in Beast Machines as well, so ignore the brain freeze above. Still it remains the first and last "Super" size class mold.

    He's the same size as most leaders that are around today. Make of that what you will.

    Not correct.

    Hasbro clearly sold RID Optimus Prime,ultra Magnus & Scourge at the "SUPER" size class & price point.
