    I think TJ mentioned this is Power Master? Makes sense.

    I thought this was just going to be using the existing classics prime but nope they've pulled an mt and remade the base figure mold n tweaked it too though like mt's probably has the cross compatibility with the original figure too. Wheels seem a bit small:

    Looks awful. A rare FP product that doesn't interest me.

    Are you sure? It looks like I can see Classics OP bits in there; could this just be an add-on to the cab?

    Also, really not a fan of the fists just sticking out the sides of the truck like that.

    I don't understand "slightly re-doing" a decade old mold and leaving the flaws, like the bigass arm kibble.

    Make it compatible with the existing mold or make a brand new one that does what you want.

    EDIT: holy crap I just saw the hands sticking out the sides

    Yeah I corrected my post when I noticed. The figure on display in the photos is indeed a classics prime wearing the armor set but they've shown a redo of it in those slides I posted. So like MT they intend to make the armor work for both their own mold and the old one.

    Received a clarification. The New Leader is basically an add-on to Classics Voyager OP, much like City Commander. So, the pics on the first post is the armored version. It will come with a trailer.

    While this may be great for some, I'm personally no longer interested. I was anticipating a new standalone Optimus Prime mold, not a powermaster

    Oh well. Still in for their dinobots :)

    I'm super excited for this. They should do a Fire Guts version for Botcon Ginrai.

    I'm all for a decent Powermaster Prime but I don't think this pulls it off. In this day and age the upgrade armors are kinda pointless when a brand new figure could be made for close to the same price these days.It is pretty cool looking, but I'm satisfied with Orion as my Prime.

    New prime would have been cool, but this just doesn't work for me at all

    why upgrade a 10 year old mold that they already made armor for in the past? Its an absolute failure in concept and execution imo

    For a second I thought that they'd pull a MakeToys move. Visions of an FP Ultra Magnus to go with my FP city commander armor starting dancing around my head.

    Man... they should've posed this bad boy next to and old school City Commander.

    Wonder how long before they add the God Bomber pieces. (Though TBH, that God Bomber from Xovergen looks sweet... and it's neat that it can attach to MP Prime, completely skipping the first armor...)
