    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.

    What he said.

    Worldwide Leader Classes are Optimus, Megatron, and rumored Dragonstorm. Although it's probably impossible, I heard somewhere there is going to be a 4th Leader Class.
