    Surprisingly, there are still people who still seem to genuinely be unable to tell the difference. I would've though we've seen enough of both by now.

    And the only "backpack" this version has is the trailer hitch section and the gas tanks. Everything else is part of the robot.

    People, you need to calm down and LOOK!!!

    I was gonna wait for the hasbro version in stores, but I can't get over how badass the head and chest paint look on this one, I just preordered it from AE. It's funny, this is the first time I've been crazy about this Generations Leader mold.

    My Main issue with the First Edition is the sea of ugly Chrome I like the backpack and the smaller shoulder kibble.

    Not that either version or the Voyager set my heart on fire with joy - however all 3 of them are a darn sight better than the 2007 or 2011 Voyager Optimus toys.

    The main issue I have with most 2014 Hasbro Movie toys is the bad taste way they use chrome inappropriately and the colours choice and saturation on the toys.

    I know the Legacy Optimus Prime in the best possible colours be they red and blue or muted tones is going to look way better than any of the other body is likely to do.. simply as that other toy isn't covered in mostly pointless kibble.
    Even if the version one colours are somewhat lacking in detail overall - I'm not complaining about the legacy prime being blue and red but that he's simply not well decorated with what he has as a colour choice for him - which is a shame.

    I'm afraid so far I'm a little indifferent to the Movie 4 toys - as some might say "They are a thing, and they exist" but not one I'm choosing to get to excited about in the current colour options.

    More silver does not mean it will look better on this mold.

    I think it's just the existing head sculpt with extra paint. It looks amazing!

    And the figure is definitely better looking than the Hasbro version overall. I hope that means the rest of the figures will be more Movie-accurate and better painted than Hasbro's versions. :)

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it's the same head sculpt. Hasbro just painted theirs all wrong, to the point where it looks like an evil Prime or a Decepticon bug face.

    And yeah, I also hope that the Takara figures will be better painted.

    I just prefer Hasbro Optimus face than Takara Optimus face whereby the more silver make it more funny looking.

    Anime Export. I paid $52.59 before shipping awhile ago for it. It says the 30% off preorder deadline is on the 24th but their time is ahead of ours, so it probably ends some time on sunday here.

    I have a funny relationship with the TF movies. I've never been a "hater", nor a hardcore fan, but I've always enjoyed them. Optimus Prime has always stood out to me as the most successful blend of classic TF & movie styles. My feelings on the designs are mixed- but AoE has a lot of interesting stuff going on so far. I really like the way they have the vehicle panels acting like clothing in a sense. It works for me. It's part of why I've fallen in love with this Prime design. I'm not sure I can resist the Takara version of this figure. Sure, the kibble is a little bit distracting and his preportions are not quite as "heroic" or filled out- but he's great. What to do.. what to do.. It will be the first movie figure I buy and I know I'll cave and want Dino and the black Soundwave figure as well. Then possibly the Dinobots.. Damn you Takara. lol.
