    This is actually worse than another G1 Prime, because at least G1 Primes look good when they're done.

    I agree. I don't know how a factory can mess up so badly.... Hasbro probably messed up in communication or something.

    But atleast Takara used that head.

    Regardless it's doing a design that has not been done in a while besides G1, which you were complaining about.

    It just feels weird for them to phone in 86 Optimus when he's supposed to be their big ticket item for the 40th.

    To be fair though we did just get Animated Optimus who hadn't gotten a toy since 2008. Same goes for Armada Optimus, Laser Optimus, RID Optimus, etc. They are acknowledging other versions of him.

    Yeah i think almost every optimus besides energon, tfp, rid15, cyberverse and earthspark have gotten modern updates or are getting modern updates (and even tfp had the RED ver). But yeah lets keep talking about hasbro does nothing but g1 primes

    To me, it looks like they want to save Optimus for the big announcement of San Diego Comic Con 2024

    I’m just over g1 primes at this point, or Optimus primes in general. I dig them when they’re wildly different but so many of them recently have all looked the same.

    Earthspark, reactivate, tf-one, ROTB, ROTB ss, missing link, lunar cruiser, legacy animated, legacy g2, 86 commander, upcoming legacy deluxe. It’s just kinda blurring together at this point.

    Yeah that's 100% their plan, I'm just saying it's weird to go through all that just for it to be an ER retool.

    In the words of Tony Stark, Is it too much to ask for both? I'd love another Evasion Mode Optimus, but I would also love it if they redid BB Optimus somewhere down the line.

    Earthrise Prime is okay but honestly, I have never seen it as the definitive G1 Optimus others see it as, the truck mode is all wrong, the legs have all that leftover because they used elements of the siege mold but in the wrong way and if it comes to looking like the cartoon in robot mode, Siege beats it by a country mile. It's an okay Optimus, but in the same way that Classics Optimus was.

    Honestly I just hope they release the one with the full knight armor. Or they are just going to make an upgrade kit (Nemesis Prime head, the Staff, Seed, his small and his regular blaster and the arm blade ) and call it a day

    Honestly same. I'd rather get Evasion mode Prime and then just wait for another G1 inspired movie Prime by the time the next live action more rolls around. Cause I doubt they will change the design that much if at all. Personally I would like for Prime to get a new design but keep the usual stuff (head sculpt and chest windows). But I take it they will probably want to save money using assets they already have.

    Sandstorm does have a toon head baked into the mold; it is just not in use for now, probably for a future redeco. The leaker's source saw concepts and renders that were close to the finished product; it just so happened that Sandstorm was using the alternate toon head.

    Thanks for helping me remember his name!
    Also btw isn't that like almost every leaker on this site; they relay information that their buddies give them?

    why do we think 86 prime won't be a new mold all of a sudden?

    A lot of people also expected Springer to be a new mold, and a few thought the same for Soundwave too or at least the bare minimum of a retool
