    Hey guys,

    Through the ages there have been many versions of Optimus (G1, Comics, Games, Movie, armada, WFC exc exc) I was wondering, based purely on appearance, which Prime do you think looks aesthetically the coolest?

    Please give reasons if you can!

    I'd say either Movie or Animated. Cybertron is also up there. The rest of them seem a little too chunky for my liking.

    War Within Prime by Dan Fig looks awesome. And of course original G1 cartoon Prime will always look great.

    Prime Prime is a decent design, if only the legs were a little less twiggy. I also dig the Classic look.

    Currently, I'd say TF: Prime Optimus is the coolest looking. He takes a bit of the visual cues of the Animated Prime, and beefs them up with Movie details. Overall, he looks heroic and very grand, like a hodgepodge of all the Primes' best details.

    Animated Prime comes in a very close second, mostly because his silhouette is simply awesome. The exaggerated Animated proportions give him a ridiculously cool heroic look.

    Beyond that, I like most Primes, although since everyone will probably mention G1 and Movie, I'd like to throw out Cybertron Optimus here. I think that was a really nice design, and his Super Mode remains among the best yet. Really loved his mecha look.

    I like the War Within/ Titanium version. If only they had made the toy better. Classics is up there as well for me for two reasons. One; it's a very good representation of the classic (no pun intended) Optimus. Two; with the various power up armors, it's improved even more with both playability and posability. Helps to complete both modes.

    Movie Prime all the way for me. I am seriously impressed in how Bay updated him and still made Prime instantly recognizable as well as retained all of his heroic properties. plus the amount of detail is mind-boggling.

    G1 Prime. No contest. Everything and anything else can only come in second.

    Movie Optimus!

    Second, Rodimus (sports car mode), though he is arguable.

    Favourite is G1, followed by WFC. After that, I would say the War Within look is also a strong design. Not really fan of how the others look,(except Powermaster Prime).
