    I never liked the way Bayverse Prime looked from day 1, but I think this latest version of OP looks absolutely terrible. I have NOT seen AoE, so I don't really know if there is a decent reason why he looks the way he does, but this Prime is pretty awful-looking to me. I cringe when I see him.

    Whether you like AoE or not, do you all think this new Prime look is good?

    His TFTM/ROTF look is still my favorite. I think because transformations weren't so prevalent in this film the design works because it's such a sleek and easy to look at robot mode.

    I don't like how it has absolutely no resemblance to his old transformation. It's literally an entirely different body with the same head.

    However, he's supposed to resemble a knight, which does come into play in the movie, so that's why his armor looks the way it does.

    I liked his older form better, but I love the head of the new Prime a lot more.

    The new body is fine. Not terrible, but not super duper awesome. Its...good. Just good.

    I love it, but then I'm completely on board with the knight theme anyway.

    I think he sucks ... never really liked the movie live action versions of Prime.

    Nope. All the movie designs are ugly robots. Not even ugly Transformers because they sure as hell don't look like they transform into anything.

    I'm not saying it has to be G1, but if the designs were a little more simple, and didn't look like some humanoid jumble of parts, I'd love them.

    Oh hell no. AoE optimus is way cooler than movie 1 Optimus. Any design from AoE is better than movie 1 designs

    I actually really like his new design. I just wish there was a decently priced representation of his design that looked good.

    Optimus from the first three movies was a robot that transformed into a truck. AoE Optimus has almost no cues as to what his alt mode is, which is actually rather disappointing.

    I like the new AOE vehicle mode but the robot mode of the first movie.
