    You'll get no argument from me there.

    I actually think that, they need to make a perfect representation for optimus, the profile hasn't done well (and one of the reasons are the electronics). And no using the electronics don't means a great difference in the price, i mean, yeah, hearing "I'M OPTIMUS PRIME" was great back in days, and comparing to a figure that possibly won't have but it's the twice of the price, you can justify them.

    It's a possibility that it's actually bigger than optimus rotf if they going to an accurate scale.

    I agree, for ROTF leader Jetfire and Prime suffered from the voicebox being mandatorily included, with Prime suffering much less(the fact that it could combine was a very well-hidden secret initially).

    ROTF Optimus raised the bar for leader figures but it has been almost a decade since it was designed and there's definitely room for improvement. I hope the upcoming MP movie Optimus lives up to its name.

    As far as this Deep space one man war Optimus, I think the latest shots have the flash turned on. In dimmer lighting it might look a lot better(like at the show overseas where it was revealed).

    I'd say Jetfire suffered more due to the all-in-one Transformation, rather than the sound box.

    Looking at this scale chart, it looks like RotF Optimus's upper body will scale well with mpm3 Bee. I wouldn't mind a retool of RotF Optimus with a smaller backpack and longer legs

    Here's how he stores his extra car kibble, from what I can see. It seems to insert into the back of his torso. It's pretty freakin awesome that we're finally getting a transforming Bee mold with minimal, if any, extra kibble.

    The colors are coordinated. Hope it helps a bit.

    AFAIK one of the Takara designers actually stated something like he didn't like having to work the voice-box in(on Jetfire) because the toy had to be designed around it and as such, suffered due to it.
