BadFlip Prelim Optimus Design

Since I've pounced on all the other prelim designs he's done, why not one more?

The Bad Flip Blog: Optimus Prime - Truck Mode

Props dude, hopefully you can share more in the coming weeks leading up to BotCon. Especially the ones you told were "as-of-yet unrealized in-show". Sounds mysterious, sounds cool.

This also strikes me as a better truck than what finally arrived; looks stylized without looking unrealistic. Also, can someone photoshop this with Sideswipe, Jazz and Ironhide?
Oh, no! We're out of pizza!

Not only is that more reminiscent of the original G1 truck design, but it also pays homage to the classics Prime which, IIRC, came out way before the movies.

That looks ten times better than Prime Optimus' alt mode. The colour scheme is still bland, but the truck looks a hell of a lot more punchy and tough.

Prime? Sure. Movie? Hell no. For one, the movie is a real truck, and a gorgeous one at that.

I don't see anything wrong with Prime's final truck model, I actually like it better than this one. Looks a bit too stubby to me (but it's still helluva awesome, don't get me wrong here).
