Hasbro Press Event Coverage: First Images of Transformers: Age of Extinction Optimus Prime!

Weapon: Gattling Gun
Seibertron is live at Hasbro's press event in New York preceding NYCC 2013 and we have our first look at the Transformers: Age of Extinction Leader Class Optimus Prime figure. We see the figure in both robot and his new Western Star truck vehicle mode. The figure will have a suggested retail price of $44.99 and will be out in May of next year. According to Seibertron it appears to be a little smaller than previous movie Leader Class figures. Check out the images below!

Alt mode is nice ... but ... robot mode is a bit ... odd.

Kinda looks like an upscaled Cyberverse toy. Never seen that before. Nope. :HEADHURTS:

Fake chest and gargantuan amounts of truck just hanging off the back. Awful.

The actual robot design seems kinda interesting, though, from what I can tell. Kinda like a knight.

I think a Cyberverse would've incorporated the truck kibble better, actually.

And for a few minutes I was worried I might like it. I'm glad I don't. This movie line will once again allow me to save my money.

I know why they did it like this; to make it simpler for children to play with. But the whole thing seems off.

Does his shield/key thing have the blade of Voltron's blazing sword in between the yellow halves?

Regardless, the Bayniverse crushed my completism long, loooong ago. I assumed I'd be buying little beyond the Dinobots anyway.

Weapon: Cluster Bombs
Optimus Prime figures don't usually have that much kibble on them. At least not like that. It almost appears as if he has a cape in this movie. The robot and vehicle modes look nice. Hearing that he looks smaller bothers me. Definitely waiting for a more screen accurate paint job this time. It is nice to finally see Prime's new robot mode though.

The robot mode actually resembles PRID Ultra Magnus.

Chromey.

B'aww, that reminded me of the current IDW universe.

Anyway, back on topic: Nice truck mode, if they keep the chrome. Bot mode is a meh and a pass, but at least it's better than Ultimate OP.

Hmmm... it looks like they are very much funneling design cues from TF: Prime back into the movie figures. Neat-o!

The kibble is somewhat depressing. However, I'm still eager to get more pics of this guy, and I'm curious to see if that nice chrome carries over to the final product.

If they(as in Hasbro)think that I would shell out $40+ for this,then they're high!!!!

It doesn't even look passable enough to be deluxe class. This line and film shall be an easy skip for me.

Looks like an Alpha Trion body with a Prime head. Dunk him in purple dye and make a 3rd party AT head and we might have something worth buying...

While I'm not terribly impressed with the excessive amount of kibble hanging off the back, nor the fake chest, the robot mode is fairly cool, and I do like all the chromed plastic. The truck mode looks sweet, and a lot less blingtastic than the photos we've seen of it so far. Thank Primus they toned down the size of the exhaust pipes....they were starting to remind me of organ pipes in a church.

That first and foremost makes me really appreciate my MP10 and MP10B Primes. That's how an Optimus Prime should look.

Now the excess parts hanging off I dont care for and it does look mistransfored basing that off the arms looking as if they are not locked into places and some parts seem like they should be placed behind others. The bot mode gives me an evolution feel, as if they have brought more of the protoform into the main design this time around.

I think the on screen optimus will probably look amazing, the toy just like DOTM will probably be better in the Voyager scale class then leader. But time will tell. This could be just a first run to gauge reaction.

Truck mode looks dang good (but is it just me, or is it missing headlights?) but I'm praying he's mistransformed in robot mode. If there isn't something that can be done about that massive backpack, I'm not gonna be happy with this one.

ridiculous back/shoulder kibble notwithstanding, I'm actually really quite liking this design
then again i think it's pretty clearly mistransformed i mean from what i can tell the shoulders dont even line up with each other

Meh. That's all I can say. Meh. Don't like it, but I don't hate it. Especially wish that the sword's grip was shorter.

The "simplicity" thing that Hasbro's doing to raise the juvenile portion of the demography is really starting to urk me. If they want to do simple stuff so as to not confuse the crap out of kids, just make another line that is more simple/kid-friendly, and leave us collectors to the complex figures.

That said, wake me up when they reveal more awesome Generations: Thrilling 30 toys. >:oP
