    Which parts are transformed wrong? Takara rarely transforms toys wrong, though I grant you, they transformed Bumblebee's chest wrong.

    I doubt anyone is surprised.
    Anyone else feel that a lot of the recent Takara repaints are really lazy? The only difference I see in Optimus is the chrome shoulder thingies.

    If we judge by the 2007 movie line TakaraTomy won't be making any significant changes for their releases.

    The red pieces under the windows on Prime's chest aren't snapped in place. That's all I can tell as far as "mistransformation".

    It does look like it is a bit, however, I think overall it's an improvement over the original.

    And the more I see Leader Optimus, the more I'm impressed.

    BB looks nice, but the eyes are backwards on this release as well. It's blue pupils, black eyes, not the other way around! Aside from the red shoulder armour now being silver, I don't see enough change to warrant import for Prime.

    BB is transformed wrong in that the gun is still folded out in robot mode.

    Prime looks great. Bumblebee, however, isn't different enough from the one I already have for me to bother buying it.

    I'm glad the red things on his shoulders are silver not red. I wish I could repaint him so he has the right colours on him e.g. gold on the side of the kneee joints.

    Leader Prime is awesome but I guess I'll just get the Hasbro edition, because the Takara version doesn't seem much different. The only BB ill be buying is the HA version. The first movie's '07 deluxe mold is enough for me.
