    No offense, but that's the most ******ed thing I ever heard. And I think you're wrong.

    IF this will be the Leader Class Prime than I will have to pass. I much prefer the ROTF LC Prime! One Shall Fall. One Shall Stand. ROTF LC Prime Forever!

    The combined mode looks stupid, the giant arms are ugly. This is a step back from ROTF. Had huge hopes for this one, but it's crap.

    This! I like the lower arms as it should simplify the transformation and eliminate much of the frustration from ROTF Leader class.


    I know its not 100% screen accurate or seems not to be going the Super bowl trailer, but I am going to give it chance and wait for a review.

    I think it's safe to say at this point that the Sentinel Prime toy will probably be a let-down too. :)

    Haha! No. Sentinel is a Leader class. You know. The ones where all of their gimmicks are concentrated into their mechtech weapons. Unlike Prime here, who is ALL GIMMICK, ALL DAY.

    Not necessarily. We've come to expect Ultimate class to be a let down. Leader class have a much better track record.

    So saying something sucks BEFORE IT'S RELEASED is a good thing? Classy. :throw  Dude, calm down, and chill out. ToyFair isn't for six more days. I'm sure when Hasbro announces the toyline, there will hopefully be a DOTM toy you might end up getting.

    Ugh...*Facepalm* I'm pretty sure there's at least one Transformers fan out there who may think this toy doesn't suck. And for all we know, this Ultimate Optimus Prime figure may be mistransformed...hopefully. Sure, I said earlier that I'm passing on this toy, but once again, I jumped to conclusions, and now I'm just gonna do what everyone here should do: wait until we see pictures of this toy at ToyFair. Then everyone can whine or praise this toy when it's released.

    THANK YOU.

    All right! Now I can go buy ROTF Leader Prime, in confidence that no better Prime is coming!
    I sure hope my WM still has that one left...

    Yeah, nobody seems to be commenting on Prime's seemingly massive backpack. One more element of suckage to add to the list.

    not one for jumping on the rage-fest, but that's really disappointing. if it were voyager+$10 for the trailer, maybe. for 80, no way. does hasbro not have a ROTF leader prime around for reference?

    meh i'll stick to the ROTF leader.

    HOWEVER i would love if we get a Megatron in the same range, after all combining with his trailer IS his transformation and he would be a definitive movie Megs to stand next to ROTF Prime-the scale would be perfect!
    but alas i digress....
