Awesome pics indeed Cataclizm1, and boy does Prime look GORGEOUS in those chrome or what?

This makes me not miss Premium Prime, as I am ever tempted to get this bad boy.

I by far prefer Hasbro's version.
Rodimus Major
I prefer this version to Hasbro's but I prefer Hasbro's price.

Price wins.
Greyryder
Chrome plated feet.... Yeah, that'll hold up fine.
Josh
wow


i want that so bad

just looks incredible. way surpasses the hasbro version IMO
Fit For natalie
I think this makes Hasbro's Premium Prime look half-hearted by comparison.
Delphan Rane
Takara's version looks awesome. I'm really liking the extra detailing on the feet and the sword, Prime looks good in both modes.
lord ginrai
I love the look, but you can really only pose the robot mode with a satin cloth or something under his feet...

This Premium Prime is awesome!!! I wish I had one. But I live in Europe, I canīt get it, it will just be a dream of getting this Prime Can anyone may give me some Advice how I can get this great piece?!

That is the most beautiful rendition of movie Optimus Prime I have ever seen.

Too bad I can't afford it right now.
Incepticon
Now *this* is what I expect from a Premium Edition. Gorgeous.
Pimpimus Prime
I wonder why they didn't chrome the smoke stacks. They did everything else.
AutobotMarine
WOW, now THAT'S just Prime! That's precisely how he should have looked to start with, I just love the chrome! I'm really tempting to buying this figure again, I just hope Hasbro's version is as good. Or, I may sell the one I have for this one.
alien
so one word... BUY!!!
AutobotMarine
Yup, and I came up with this too.

Takara Premium Optimus Prime > Hasbro Premium Optimus Prime > Nightwatch Optimus Prime > Movie Optimus Prime.

Because they're made out of rubbery material.

Anyone that says chrome doesn't belong on a Transformer is dead wrong in this case!

Well done on the sword. Still, waiting for a face-plate-less Prime.

QFT, would have far preferred more of the lovely silver paint used on the thighs. If I ended up with this toy I'd be really paranoid about standing it on a surface that wasn't like, cloth. ;_;
Kingplay
WOW, damn sweet, when is takara releasing their premiums?
NIDARAM12
I like how the Japanese version kept all of the original paint details too like the blue on the hips and the red on the shoulders.
Eric
Unfortunately, I don't know any store that would sell the Takara Premiums, so I'll have to stick with Hasbro Premium Prime for now.
Night Flame
Bling bling Prime makes me happy in the pants, sad in the wallet. Do want, but may not get because of import prices.

There aren't any other Takara Premiums besides this Optimus and Bumblebee. Bumblebee (from what little we know) is the same as the US version.

I'm happy I have him on preorder and happy that I didn't buy the Hasbro one! Now I can't wait to get him!
Zaraxion1021
hehe......That looks nice but i already got the sword made from Hong Kong.........I still love the paintjob of this prime!
Shin Densetsu
Looks better, but honestly I prefer Hasbro's version, I don't like chrome because it chips(and I handle my toys often so metallic paint>chrome for me).
RHALX
I ordered mine on ebay just after I saw these pics. He looks awesome.

Really? Really?

Like honestly?

Damn. See that? That's what the movie figures should have looked like in the first place IMO.

That chrome-work makes me wish I hadn't bought the original one.

You are 100% correct sir. I am so glad that I have this guy coming to me just as soon as BBTS gets their shipment. Well worth the $$ ($95 shipped for those that were wondering).

This guy w/ the reprolabels upgrade set = a nearly perfect Optimus Prime.
Powersa
chromed and roll out!
looks great!
Neo-Bombshell
Hmmm it looks cool, but that chrome looks cheap. That would be a figure I would never stand up in any surface but a piece of soft clothe.

Anyway I am happy with my first Leader Prime with Custom Sword.
Kingplay
how much is he going for?
Railguard
Battle mode Prime? Will they be releasing the Potty Prime with automatic dispenser soon?
Kingplay

Looks killer, can't wait for ours to come in at the end of the month.
Acid Wing
Besides the chrome, I really love the extra paint ups the Takaratomy version adds to the face--really makes a difference. Though, still happy with my Hasbro premium version; mainly because of the price.
soundwaveCA
Oh ya this is definitely on my hit list for TFCon this year, very beautiful!
Kingplay
thanks bro!


dang tats expensive..... two and a half hasbros or 1 takara
Noisemaze2006
Mine should be here soon from HobbylinkJapan.

I already took my Hasbro version apart in preparation for my custom Ultra Magnus repaint. I just can't decide if I wanna drop the flames or keep them for UM. If I keep them I'll have to mask them off to repaint but masking them on the curves is going to be a total pain in the ass. I'm not sure if it's worth the trouble. He might look better without the flames. I'm thinking that only Optimus should have the flames, the paint job shouldn't be identical on every version of this mold.

Any opinions?
Cheem The Rup
I'm just waiting for 2 of it ^__^
Sammael
How does this compare to Takara's Nightwatch Prime?
