    i still don't understand why in the world AOE leader prime is the ONLY iteration of this prime to not have flames on his chest.. it seems like EVERY other figure of prime has the flames except for this one. (and the first edition.. you know, the two most expensive figures are missing one of the more important painted design features)

    Yeah, is a bit ridiculous. In fact they could've remoulded the whole flip down chest piece as it's separate part to better resemble how his chest looks it the movie, but that would definitely be asking too much.

    And the silver paint on the rear tanks seems to have disappeared again even though it was there on the display figure at Botcon.

    I'm iffy. I like the Leader Class Optimus Prime that comes with the set, but have no interest in Grimlock. Then again, I'm hopeful the next movie brings us a better toy of this iteration of Optimus. I'll reserve judgment and save money for Autobots United and Farmaggedon though.

    Prime looks a bit better in darker colors. Still not nice enough to warrant a purchase personally.

    Meh. Is this the one shown recently where they actually put in the effort to hinge the backpack a little so it folds somewhat out of the way?

    If they mashed up these with the previously released versions they "might" actually have the paint right. I still amputated the leader Prime's backpack myself.

    The silver still looks like grey plastic. I think everyone should start a campaign and send a small bottle of Testors silver paint in the mail to Hasbro showing them what it really looks like.

    I would only get this set for Optimus. I like the blue sword and the red on his shins

    I will say this about Platinum Leader Optimus Prime. That dark navy blue looks gorgeous on him. Too bad the mold is still cruddy and got the unnecessary chrome.


    Grimlock's deco is pretty blah but it sort of comes close to the deco he had in the movie.

    Looks like Grimlock rolled over onto a smurf.

    I'm extremely disappointed that Optimus doesn't seem to be translucent anymore. However, he does look A LOT better now that his windows no longer look like he received a golden shower.

    Looks like the Takara leader is still the one to get if you want chrome & flames. Fortunately I'm pretty satisfied with the Hasbro one I already touched up. Though this almost makes me want to buy this just to swap out the windows & return :p 

    Would serve them right for using piss yellow in the first place.

    wait....no more translucent truck panels on prime? boooooo!! these just seem to be hasbro's interpretations of takara's black knight grimlock and their regular leader class prime...and sadly neither look as good? hopefully these are just bad/early images.

    Grimlock's dino mode looks like he fell asleep at a low rider car show and got painted with that color changing car paint :lol
