Terrible. Just terrible.
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.
trukk not munkey
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
Hasbro needs to throw this terrible looking Optimus Prime out the door and start over we Transformers fans deserve better than this i cant believe Hasbro screwed up the Leader of the Autobots what were they thinking.
Dunno about that.
But they deffinitely should, like, do this over. Also yes, there's nothing IDW about this toy.
Those arms are too big to be useful. And he STILL has kibble on them.
That doesn't make it any less shitty.
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.
it's like a more complex more articulated rescue bot....
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.
Looks like Prime's been hitting the gym.
... am I in the minority in thinking the Legends version looks better?
nope..i think we'd all rather have an upscaled version of that than this rescue bot
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.
That alt mode looks terrible.
