YOU!

STOP TEMPTING ME!

I already Customised a 2007 Starscream and a Xover Hulk by mashing them together because I had them twice. Even if I think that the Leader 2007 Movie Optimus Prime is an excellent toy, I have troubles selling my second because he's not popular enough.

So, why not customising it?

Still, my style is to make strange and weird customs. So, what can I do with a 2007 leader OP that would set it appart from the rest while still being transformable? Just repainting him into "Toxitron" or "Scourge" or "Nemesis Prime" is lame.

Any ideas?

Thanks - for reminding me what a horrible piece of garbage 07 'Megatron' was. I'm glad I never bought one...

You would think they'd have put a little more effort into designing the MAJOR villain of the movie....

If they gave megatron a better head sculpt and upscaled him to the same hight as rotf optimus then i would see it being a lil more worth it.

But he just the same? :(

It always was removeable, just requiring a very hard yank to do so.

Back in 2007 when I first got Prime, I thought he looked great, and super movie accurate. Then ROTF came along and I looked at '07 prime again... And wonder if I was high the past 2 years... :shock:

But yeah, it's still a great figure, just that the ROtF one is much better.

Megatron is nice though, better than ROTF with the small and huge arm.

Maybe they just located a bunch of old stock and needed a way to unload it?

I think that Prime is actually a pretty cool figure...but if you're going for accuracy, I don't know why anyone would bother since ROTF leader mold is an option.

Let's see, two steps forward, two steps back...

When they make a Leader Megatron based on his DOTM design, which had an actual vehicle mode, rather than "cybertronian pile of crap", I'll care. Until then I'm happy with my RTS G1 Legends Megatron.
