    The best movie version of Prime - is the one that appeals to you the most.

    WeiJiang M-01 Commander. Easily the best.

    I have the takara striker prime (APS-01) and the WeiJiang M01D (damaged) one. Hard to decide which one I like better..

    Non-transformable I guess it would be the 4ever Prime 2.0, but unfortunately it's too small to scale with the other leader class figures

    Does anyone have/have opinions on the black and purple themed WeiJiang Optimus?

    I really think TLK Voyager is the best one.

    This is the correct answer.

    My opinion of the best official movie version would be APS-01u or RotF Buster Prime.

    Best 3P would be the WeiJiang Evasion Optimus.

    Pretty much this, except throwing in Deluxe DotM because I have a lot of fun with him.

    I only own the Dark of the Moon Voyager, and I think I'm one of the only people who actually likes him. He's not the best, but he's a lot of fun in robot or truck mode, and whether you get him with a large cannon or a giant ax, he's still a lot of fun to mess around with. In terms of wanting a toy that's fun to mess around with, I'd go for either him or the original Movie Leader (which I have never owned, but desperately wish to).

    In terms of screen accuracy, yeah, MPM-4, no question. Maybe one of the many, many versions of the ROTF Leader, if that's your preference.

    I'm sure the MPM isn't.

    Wei Jiang Commander is the true masterpiece here.

    Subjectively, the answer is this.

    Objectively, APS01-U/MB-11, MPM-4, and Wei Jiang M01 Commander are all in the top 3. From there, it's all on what you want out of a "perfect" Prime figure.

    The MPM Prime has the best proportions and is the most complete (and will be), here the thing is that due the issues, it isn't the best (yet), commander surpasses him in quality and price point, but if takara does it right or they release an even better edition of it, then that mpm prime would be the best.

    My problem with wei jiang is the strange priportions of the torso, while the mpm4 has a strange chest, the commander has a flat chest and a torso wich lacks of mass, but it's fault of the evasion mould too, and the arms, REEEEEEE.

    I'm gonna switch it up for a change and be succinct.
    Accuracy? MPM-4 or Takara Rusty Evasion Prime w/ Breakout Battle Set head
    Playability? Movie One Leader?
    Best Balance? Either the Wei Jiang Commander or the DotM Leader Jetwing Optimus

    Here the thing is that MPM-04 will get every treatment kwon by the men.

    MPM-3 and MPM-4 will get Movie Two and Three remolds, respectively. Not even a question. If we got Targetmaster Rodimus, we're getting RotF Bee and DotM Prime.
