    It seems that, despite it being somewhat frustrating to transform, the new TF2 Leader Prime surpasses the 2007 movie Leader Prime in many ways. For those who have 2007 Prime, what have you done with yours? Do you still have it? Do you still like it? Still play around with it? Stick in storage, forever to be ignored or even forgotten? Sell it off? What? :) 

    I was going through some moving boxes, and I found mine. Covered in dust and bits of packing material littering it here and there. I actually felt bad for the big fella. He was the first movie figure I bought, along with the Voyager Prime, and he was prominently displayed in my new collection. Now he pales in comparison to the new one, as he is not nearly as movie accurate or even posable like the new version is. He deserves a spot to be seen, but where? For now, he stands alone on my desk. Whatta cool figure this was in his day, which really wasn't that long ago.

    I sold mine off when I first saw what the new leader Prime looked like.

    I have four different versions of him (first, Premium, Nightwatch, and a custom) and I've got them all on display. I honestly don't care about movie accuracy. A cool toy is a cool toy and this guy's still awesome to me!

    Mine is prominently displayed next to ROTF Prime along with MP Prime, MP Magnus, Shoe Prime, Animated Deluxe Prime (signed by David Kaye) and 25th Ann. prime.

    While the ROTF version is more movie accurate, both are wonderful transformers.

    You know that's a great idea.

    Mine is actually at the very very bottom of my shelves hidden in the back. He sort of don't fit that well with my other stuff. I still like the figure but hes not as cool as the recent 1 that came out even though I also have the SAME figure in the repaint known as nightwatch prime.

    I sold my original, and kept the premium. I plan to keep that one. I also have an original MISB, along with a ROTF in MISB.

    I still have mine on display along side ROTF Leader Prime. The 2007 Leader version is still a great toy so I never saw the need for me to get rid of it.

    He's still on Display in my wall of Primes. He's a good enough representation of movie Prime there, my ROTF Leader Prime is on Display with Leader Megatron, Leader Starscream and the Movie HA Collection. Kinda f'd up that Prime is flanked by Sideswipe, Bee, and Skids (and soon to be Mudflap and Jazz), while Megs and Screamer are stuck with just Barricade to back them up.

    The only 2007 Leader Prime I got was the Nightwatch one. I pretend he's Ultra Magnus.

    I have him in my Prime display, but he is on the chopping block if anyone wants to bite. While I appreciate him - was awesome before the ROTF version came around - he just doesn't have a place in my collection anymore. Frankly, I don't like the movie figs THAT much, so one movie prime is enough for me:)

    My wife surprised me with mine( she always seems to somehow get me a Prime a year lol) and since I got my RotF one not too long ago hes gonna be put into a storage bin along with movie1 Megs.

    Excellent figure but can do so much more with the new one.

    Haha! We have started a tradition now where my wife gets me a Prime for my birthday. Last year, she got me ROTF Prime. This year, she got me MP-04. THAT is love, my friends!

    I still have mine on display at the moment. I'm going to be purging a bunch of my figures and putting them into storage until we get a house. The collection, which I love, is just getting too big, so some go into storage and the newer and favorite guys stay out.

    I never bought the ROTF version simply because I thought the original one (which I got loose complete and mint for $5 from a friend) was pretty good and had three things ROTF didn't: rubber tires, a gun, and individual finger articulation. I also was banking on Buster Prime getting released stateside, but that fell through because Hasbro just gave him hooks instead.

    I sent him to college. He's pulling a 3.8 GPA at Stanford. Its looking like a good investment at this point.

    Seriously.....he's sitting on my big 'ol CRT HDTV getting radiation poisoning. My cat already knocked him off once, but he didn't break. I kind of hope it happens again one day so I can throw him out.
