    I can't get myself over the awesomeness of this toy. In my many years of collecting toys from the 90's to today this is quite honestly the best toy I have. I mean just everything about him spells win, he even has win engraved on his feet. I have been collecting since my early early childhood in 90's and I have stuff from the time when action figure had well action and this toy blows them all away. I'm not just taking into effect that it looks good I'm talking action, poseability, gimmicks, playablity, and awesome sauce and throwing them all into the y= function in my calculater and getting a graph of Optimus freaking Prime. This is seriously the best toy I have.

    Sigh... I'm tired of threads like this.
    Every time a new Optimus Prime comes out, he's always" The best Prime ever!!!!"" and "A true masterpiece, second only to MP Prime!!!"
    Of course it's the best Prime ever, because it's Hasbros' best effort yet.
    Just watch, the Prime of the next series will be much better.

    Yeah, I was just remembering what everyone else was saying:dunce 
    Personally I think BW 10th Anniv. 2 pack Megatron was the best toy, if only because I grew up on BW, Megs was my fave, and the toy looked exactly like the cgi, down to the glossy finish. :thumbs2:

    Couldn;t vote in the poll. I'm not as impressed with it as everyone seems to be, but that's not because it's "Not teh Geewunderp!"

    Me too. not often someone can make both sides of a yes-or-no question poor fits.

    I'm impressed with ROTF prime, but the "Best Toy ever" would not be one that keeps telling me its name as I try to pull its chest apart.

    Your poll options are ****ing retarded. You do realise it's possible to not wank oneself blind over a toy for reasons other than it's lack of connection to G1?

    Totally agree with this.

    ROTF Leader Prime isn't bad but I think it's very,very overrated.

    Without a quality custom paintjob much of the sculpted detail is lost in a wall of greyness and it looks very bland on display in either mode.

    The much hyped engineering is perhaps the biggest fault the toy has and if it were really so good there wouldn't have been so many tales of people being too scared to transform it in case of breakages or actual breakages occuring.

    Then there's the other things such as the lack of articulated hands,rubber tyres and the wrongly colored LED's on the eyes which all add up and in the end it leaves me with an impression of something that's little more than a great base for customisers.

    Were it not Prime I think it would have gotten a lot more flak but it seems that people make a lot of excuses where that character is concerned.

    Out of what I own, he is the best Prime I have. The only that might be better than it is my Animated Leader Megs. I don't have MP so I can't compare him to that. ROTF Leader Prime is just really cool. I didn't get the first movie leader prime cause i thought his alt mode sucked, and wasn't accurate enough to a real Peterbilt. I get excited over big Kenworth's and Peterbilts. I have since I was a little kid. And That is why I claim ROTF Leader Prime is the best TF evar! G1 Prime was cool back in the day when I was a kid, but come on. For nostalgia purposes he is cool, but I can't compare him to the ROTF Leader Prime. I stared at mine for two hours yesterday. I can't get over how awesome he is. He may not be anyone else's cup of tea, but don't knock him for being mine.

    Totally agree m8, I am trying very hard right now to test your theory in the name of science and it just isn't happening, I can still see the same of s#@~e being posted.

    To be fair to the OP, he is the best Prime to-date. Masterpiece Prime still holds the crown for the best G1 esque Prime but is not as playable with as ROTF Prime.

    I didn't get Leader Prime for the 2007 film, but I am getting the ROTF mold.

    He's flawed for sure, what isn't, but regardless Hasbro did a great job of translating Prime once they had the finished CG model to study over 2007 and 2008. I look forward to actually perfecting him with a little bit of paint (my first custom).

    Some aren't sure where his sound button is, that's for sure.
