Let me preface this review by noting that this is my first experience with the Movie Leader Optimus Prime mold, so please let me know if you see anything I've messed up in transformation. I won't really cover the base Optimus figure, as it isn't too different from what has come before it and the real draw here is the Jetwing. A couple rushed box shots, was too eager to rip it open! Enough of that boring stuff, let's get right to it! Like many people I wasn't really a fan of the new paint on the gatling guns, particularly as the stock Amazon photos made them look very bright. In-hand, my opinion has completely changed. I think it looks fantastic, I love how the coloring of the gun handle mimics the gold-to-red gradient of the forearms and the silver barrels look very sharp. The only distracting bit are the barrels' orange safety tip, but even that isn't as bad as I'd thought it would be. The orange on the barrels is spray painted on and I imagine if one were so inclined it wouldn't be too difficult to repaint them. EDIT: The barrels are actually orange plastic and painted silver, which makes it even easier. Cracka J found that silver paint pens sold at stores like Walmart were a perfect match, check out his posts here and here! The wings look absolutely great. The silver paint on the wings combined with the homage to Optimus' G1 trailer works so well. They attach very securely to Optimus' back and have nice ratcheting joints to allow you to position them how you like. One thing I did have difficulty with on mine were the red wheel covers; I can't get them to plug into the pegs on Optimus' back, doesn't matter if the Jetwing is on or off, the holes on the wheel covers seem to simply be a bit too small for either of the pegs. Not a huge deal, as the wheel covers rest securely against Optimus' back without plugging in, but something I noticed. The Buster gun is simply awesome. Looks great and the way it transforms and integrates into the vehicle mode is fantastic. When not in use in robot mode, it stores very nicely into the Jetwing (see above picture, you can see the grey smokestacks peeking out along the length of the jets). Just to be clear, the blade is not included and was purchased separately. The blade is a KO of the Striker Optimus blade, made by UFO. Another minor quibble is that the Jetwing panel that comes down to cover Optimus' left shoulder does not lay as flush with the shoulder as the right-side panel. If you look carefully the left shoulder panel is slightly raised compared to the right. I'm really not sure why, the left panel simply seems to hit the shoulder sooner than the right for some reason, but again it's a fairly minor issue. Then and now! Jetwing Optimus looks so good with MP-10. Vehicle mode! Transforming this for the first time last night was just as challenging as I'd heard, it... it was not a pretty sight, haha. The most difficult part was getting the arms just right. Now that I've learned the transformation's quirks though, it's a much smoother process. Had no trouble transforming him back and forth for his review photos. Again, this is a mode that I hadn't thought looked too good from the pictures, but in-hand I love it. The quality of the Leader Optimus' vehicle mode is already well known, but the way the Jetwing fills in the rear really works for me. The guns share the gold-to-red of the car hood in this mode as well and it really looks great. The wings attach very securely and of course can be deployed for some fun flying truck action. These two just look so good together! If you do not yet have a Movie Leader Optimus and are interested in adding one to your collection, then I wholeheartedly recommend you snatch this guy up ASAP. The mold has been updated to make it more accurate to Optimus' DOTM appearance, it has the fantastic Buster gun, the Jetwing looks great and it integrates wonderfully with the figure in both modes. All these changes and additions are completely new to a US release of this mold, which makes this worthy of consideration even for folks who already own a Movie Leader Optimus. With so many accessories you have many display options and no matter how you choose to display Optimus he will look awesome. This is a great release, props to Hasbro and Amazon for making it possible!
