    So I hear from Vangelus on Twitter that this is just Voyager Prime, and isn't even supposed to be IDW.

    It's a repaint of an unannounced Motormaster toy.

    I am speechless. How in god's name did this thing be allowed to be revealed at a show. It took me a while to even notice how bad the chest was because I couldn't get past that head. WTF

    Dunno about that.

    But they deffinitely should, like, do this over. Also yes, there's nothing IDW about this toy.

    :lol 

    Those arms are too big to be useful. And he STILL has kibble on them.

    This thing looks more like a toy for 3 yearolds.

    It really does.

    The uber-boxy style, the minimal surface detail, the big fists, round head, it all screams for the youngsters.

    That actually makes it shittier.

    They were under no design obligations. That basically tells me that when left to their own devices, the designers will produce something like this.

    Assuming this OP is just a repaint of a soon-to-be Motormaster combiner core, I really hope a IDW inspired Leader class Optimus will be announced in the very near future.

    They could have upscaled the recent IDW Generations Legends Optimus, keeping the exact same simple transformation and the backpack, and it still would've been 10 times better than this thing. What. The. Hell.

    I can see that, but I still can't find any reason to like this. Layout wise he kind of reminds me of the legends version(G1 not the more current one). Somehow though they managed to mangle that though. It also seems like he's got that permanent angled foot thing, so no at attention poses. Might even hinder some leg poses.

    I don't hate this new mold, but there's just nothing here that I like. I'll gladly stick with my classic and Henkei versions.

    I hope it looks better in hand. And if not, we could always use a Leader Optimus to go with Leader Megatron.

    Considering how simple most Legends are... that's a very bad thing... well for this Voyager.

    Man... IDK what to say... It looks... wierd... soooo... weird.

    Maybe someone can find a nice repaint that makes the figure worthwhile... but these current shots make it look bad... especially for a Prime figure.

    Either get the Toyworld Optimus (and a Renderform head) or grab the upcoming Evolution set's Classic Prime for a solid voyager.
