While Optimus is typically always sporting his red and blue color scheme in every incarnation there are a few exceptions to this rule. I don't really count BW Optimus in this because he does still have the traditional colors in his robot mode parts. It's not as prominent as it normally is but it is there. The grey or black takes up most of the color scheme because of the beast mode. I do count the Pre-BW retool of Cybertron Crumplezone though... It's the exact same color scheme but this one doesn't have the excuse of a beast mode to explain why the red and blue isn't more prominent. TM Primal does have blue but there isn't really any red to speak of. Optimal Optimus again, the blue is still there but he seems to have swapped out the red for orange. Beast Machines Optimus Primal is totally missing any sign of his traditional colors. I think this is part of the reason this design is hated so much. There's nothing even remotely resembling Optimus on this design. The next one is kind of unique being the first Optimus we get to see in Traditional and nontraditional colors. There is still red in there though not in the usual places. I think this is the only one to color his mouth plate. The blue is either missing or a different shade entirely, I'm not entirely sure. Then we have Micheal Bay's idea of an alternate Optimus Prime color scheme that I think makes him look like Ultra Magnus. Normally I wouldn't count white repaints because he's a different character but in this case it's still Optimus for some reason. RID Mega Prime refers to when the original Primes temporarily lent him power at the end of Season 1 and most of his blue turned black. Blizzard Strike and Desert Camo I think are pretty self explanatory. It's actually because of this Optimus that I decided to make this thread considering how many different versions of this guy there are. I don't really like the Blizzard colors cause again I think it makes him look like Ultra Magnus. Other is of course for anything that I couldn't include in the poll. There's only so many options I can put on there and there wasn't room for Shattered Glass Optimus Prime or that Green repaint of the Beast Hunters mold. Please note that Optimus Prime repaints as a different character do not count. So no Nemesis Primes or Ultra Magnus color schemes allowed... not that it really makes much of a difference when you can still pick Optimus Primes that look like them but for some reason are still Optimus Prime. Anyway... I decided to pick one that is CLOSE to traditional colors without actually being traditional and one that is completely off. I actually really like Dawn of Future Past Optimus cause not only does it make his color scheme primarily black but it also gives him a vehicle mode that isn't a truck. The traditional red and blue is still in there, you can still tell it's Optimus but it's a much different take on him which I like. For the totally wrong colors version I went with RID Desert Camo. I like it because even though there isn't a hint of his original color scheme in there it still looks like Optimus and doesn't remind me of a totally different character.
