    Is this a hypothetical thread of what we would like to see in the Ultimate Optimus Prime figure, or just a "what's your favourite Optimus" thread?

    I dunno, but your enthusiasm deserves credit. :lol

    Totally. I mean, minus points for clarity, but on a scale of one to ten for enthusiasm, this guy's an eleven.

    The figure will be solely G.1 based and will have a wicked unique, oneoff design without going outside of G.1 styling. It will be voyager size. Yes, I know that sounds small, but don't forget about the Hybrid. Given, the Hybrid isn't exactly the best looking figure out there (no offense Takara), but the figure has credibility for enginuity and articulation. One of the easiest and best bases to use I've seen to work off of is the Classics Optimus Prime (or Takara's version). Lets begin.

    Thanks guys, but we haven't even started yet! Haha :) 

    Seriously though, I have some ideas that will truly make the Masterpiece Optimus look like it's ready for the scrap heap. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing it, infact I LOVE the masterpiece. I was only merely illustrating.)

    Well, if you notice, I used the word "solely" and not strictly, but it needs to stay 'within' the G.1 realm, but.....those ideas are welcome as long as it doesn't take the figure away from G.1. That make sense?

    Wouldn't this be a kitbash, thusly belonging in the Radicons section? That is if I'm reading his posts correctly. Personally I think Classics Optimus Pirme, as-is, is awesome enough. Has enough details homaging G1, but is a nice new Optimus at the same time. As for an ultimate G1 Otpimus Prime figure, the Masterpiece really covers that well. The only things that I could see needing change would be the smokestacks (depending on the version you have) and the tanks on his legs.

    Edit: Also, the title should be changed in my opinion to this - THE ULTIMATE G1 OPTIMUS PRIME FIGURE - to make sure people know you're talking about G1 Optimus Prime, and the whole "(TFW2005_Forum_Discussion)" makes absolutely no sense to me.

    Still, My ideas were "strictly" Movie and Animated, because I think there's enough Ultimate G1 Optimus stuff out there that suffices. I was just saying that limiting it to only G1 Prime kinda limits what you can do to him without taking him out of the G1 realm.


    The Ultimate Optimus Prime would be everything that came before, in one, AWESOME package.
