Weapon: Sword of Fury
Comic: IDW Ongoing Prime
Cartoon: TFP Prime
Toy: FOC Prime


EDIT: There is something VERY appealing about Transtech Prime to me. Here's hoping he gets a toy release, but I am soooooooo not holding my breath.

AND WHAT OF ORION PAX??? I like Spotlight Pax and Ongoing Pax.

*sigh* Really want either one to be turned into a toy....

G1 Prime, he set the bar and I could go on forever why he was the best.

I also liked the 2005 live action Prime. He did what he had to do to win. Even if that meant leaving one behind.

Weapon: No Weapon
Fictional characterization: Torn between G1 cartoon and Unicron Trilogy... G1 cartoon Prime could be a lot more emotive and hardly, if ever, doubted himself... but Cullen is overrated and has by FAR lost his touch in the intervening years. UT Optimus was also fairly emotive, but was also rather inconsistent in his depiction from one series to the next.

Visual depiction in fiction: IDW Ongoing. Hits a good balance between numerous visual styles in his modernized design.

Plastic representation: Classics/Henkei Voyager... same as above, but with less mixes and more shameless kibble! If there's one thing I couldn't stand about Optimus'(and Megatron's) G1 design is how plain they looked, so some outstanding kibble really helps his silhouette in my opinion.

I honestly dont know what my favorite toy version of Optimus Prime is. I currently have 87 different versions of Optimus Prime/ Convoy US and Japan. And the amount of Primes I own is going to increase greatly in the next several months. Projected to have at least 105 different versions of Prime/Convoy buy mid March!! :BOT: :BOT: :BOT:
I prefer quality over quantity, I have the unique collection of Optimus Primes/Convoys!

Design-wise, the seat is shared between IDW's OP, WFC OP, War Within OP and Bayverse OP. I love complex-ish and modern designs.

If I had to pick a favorite, I guess it'd be WFC. There's just something about that alt mode that I just love.

Character-wise, G1 and the video games.

Motto: "All I have to be is exceptional."

Toys: There is no comparison. G1 Optimus has more toys than any other character, and has tremendous variety. I love MP-10. I love the Classics Voyager mold. I love the TF2010 Deluxe G2 Laser Optimus, despite his horrendous color scheme (real bots use energo swords).

Fictionally, however, it's a bit harder to say...

Comics: The IDW ongoing characterization is probably my favorite, because both Marvel G1 and Dreamwave suffered from some inconsistent approaches to his character. In IDW, Prime's doubts and inconsistencies are made character traits, turning a glaring flaw into a strength.

Cartoon-wise: While I'll never forget the death of Optimus Prime in G1, for me, there is a moment that I feel encapsulates the character: in Orion Pax, Part 3 of Prime.

You have no idea.



His compassion is tempered by militaristic doctrine and while kind, he is stern and serious. In my opinion, Prime Optimus is the best fictional representation of the character, and exactly the sort of hero we expect Optimus Prime to be.

I have to say that my favorite Optimus Prime is defenitely the original G1. Who else could it be? That's the one from my childhood and is the most awesome of all.

Toywise, here's my top 3:

1) MP-10, Hasbro version. Sure, not as big as the MP-01 original and no diecast, but he's just perfect in every ways. He's also pretty fun to transform too.

2) The original G1 toy. Perfect vehicle mode, and a great robot mode. Also, nostalgia goggles. Plus, he's surprisingly posable for a G1.

3) Galaxy Force Leader Optimus Prime. His only fault is his peek-a-boo head in vehicle mode. Othewise, he's pretty awesome and his super mode is boss!

Note that even if God Ginrai is my favorite Transformers ever, he's not really Optimus. As Primal.

prime prime is prime haha

but seriously, prime optimus prime is by far the most BA of any prime overall. some prime toys have more play value (though with the coming of the dr.wu add ons such as blasters, blades, and star saber this gap may be closing...) but this prime is the best when you combine his on screen character with his toy.

his first edition toy looks great, accurate, poseable, and solid

his character is by far the most battle ready of any prime i have ever seen while reataining his optimus personality having already sacrificed himself twice in defense of friends and humanity. other primes may be armed to the teeth but they seem to lack that chuck norris ass kickingness quality. Prime prime kicks ass! i have never seen an optimus knock around decepticons like this prime does to megatron and his goombas and even an army of unicrons! ("orion pax pt3", "one shall fall", "one shall rise pt.2")

plus he's voiced by Peter Cullen, the definitive optimus voice

number 2:g1 prime who can lift a super tanker and throw it with ease and is almost as good at kicking ass and better at sacrificing his life and whose toys number in the dozens including two masterpieces that rock

Movie Prime because he doesn't believe in giving Decepticons the time to try anything. He's ruthless and goes straight for the face.

OK, since no one else wants to, here I go. My favorite prime in fiction? Animated Optimus Prime.

No Peter Cullen? Stop complaining! I love the guy, but stoicimus is getting old, Animated Optimus had something that no other modern primes seem to have: Personality.

And when he lands on earth, he goes public, just like G1 prime. He also is weeker than most cons and has to use his brain to get him through most situations. He whent toe to toe with Megatron a few times. Megatron the tyrant. Megatron of legend. The Megatron that would never so much as acknowledge him as a worthy foe.

My favorite line from Animated? :My name...is OPTIMUS PRIME!!!

After that, he does what Ive seldom seen any other prime do. He gains Megatron's respect, and to an extent, fear.

Animated Optimus Prime wins because, besides all the crap he whent through with Megatron, Sentinel, and everything else, he also turned into a great leader, and at the end of the day, he had had problems and memories, regrets, just like everyone else.
