    I like it. It looks like there may be a bit of a backpack on it but it appears to be a weapon's pack. Maybe they took the idea from DOTM Leader Bumblebee but incorporated it better into the vehicle mode itself (I assume since I dont' notice it there). If the back pack can be removed and placed aside like the DOTM Bee, than this has the potential to be a great Optimus Figure.

    One thing for certain is that this doesn't look like an overly simple bot.

    Really surprised I haven't seen this here yet (unless I'm blind and stupid and just missed it). Seibertron.com posted an image which appears to be the new Weaponizer (aka Leader) Transformers Prime Prime:

    [​IMG]

    No confirmation that that's what it is, but it matches all the things we've heard about it. Note the big pop-out Gatling guns over the shoulders.

    A few thoughts:

    -Really nice truck mode, probably the best we've seen yet for this character.
    -I like the lack of a back cape or overhanging panels.
    -His arms are awfully small, though.
    -The panels over his shoulders look bad, but the guns are deployed. It's possible they fold down to cover said guns when they're retracted (Please...)
    -Twenty bucks says he has the entire hood of the truck hanging off his back as a backpack, though. His torso looks sort of...thick. I really hope I'm wrong, but I bet the gimmick will get in the way of his transformation there.

    If those shoulder cannons and those two bits of weird-ass kibble fold away I'm sold. Finally a gimmick I can get behind. Pop-out guns!

    I like it, aside from the back kibble and shoulder guns. Hope they can fold away!

    Not sure what those bronze things over his shoulders are, but he looks ace.

    Might be better than I expected for something that's probably going to be more of a kids "full of gimmicks" toy. I was expecting something like that Supreme Animated Optimus.

    This looks like it has potential.

    Looks better than expected, if it is indeed the Leader, but I have no reason to get it. Takara FE Prime > all.

    I'll wait for clearer images before I give my opinion on it.

    This was posted in the Ratchet thread so I'll share my thoughts from there.

    I like it. It looks like there may be a bit of a backpack on it but it appears to be a weapon's pack. Maybe they took the idea from DOTM Leader Bumblebee but incorporated it better into the vehicle mode itself (I assume since I dont' notice it there).

    Meh. Only interested in Optimus Maximus.

    Yeah I posted it over in the TFP Ratchet thread a little while ago...

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...e-ratchet-review-bwtf-com-24.html#post7177075

    ...but didn't want to start a new thread since it was a link to Seibertron.com's story. Wasn't sure if that's frowned upon here.

    All the same, I'm not really digging what I'm seeing of that design so far.

    If it's really a leader Prime, odds are I will get it, but from this little pick I still say FE Voyager Prime in robot mode looks closer to the show model. Then again, it could be a removable backpack on his back kinda like Cybertron Prime. Really interested in hearing more.

    Aside from that backpack it looks pretty good, hopefully it's removable.

    Not that bad. Seems to match-up with the description we got from the UK Toy Fair. The alt-mode looks really good, and his bot-mode isn't too bad. Though it looks like he's got a rather large backpack on him. While there's very little chance I'll get him, or any other leader class figures, I do look forward to seeing more of him.

    Edit: Following the link to Seibertron, there's two more pics that show some previously unseen bot shots, and a better shot of Optimus Maximus. The bot shots appear to be a translucent Bumblebee, Ratchet, Brawl, and a blue car of some sort (makes me think of Arcee tbh). Optimus Maximus continues to look pretty cool. A little odd with all the gaps, but still looks worth picking up. I can't wait to see what the actual base-mode looks like. Doesn't look like it'll be too hard to hide the obvious robot bits.

    This may be like Cyber Ops Bumblebee. Leader-sized with gimmicks but still a reasonably-engineered toy.
