That looks badass!

Seriously, chest armour, arm wings, and the shoulder cannon and this thing will be totally bitching.

The original had an over sized head, now we have a ball jointed head (similar to MP-01) with nary a neck. When will the complaining stop?

It seems to come with it's own, altered, Classics Prime. So you don't even need that.

Hmmm,unless they sell them as two seperate items, which would be a jerk move. I'd still like to have the original though, I guess only time will tell how their altered version turns out.

The original's pretty awsome, but it's getting pricey. If you want it, get it while the getting's good.

Agreed. It's like it's unsure what it's supposed to be. It's not Classics, not G1, not MP, not anything really. And it's certainly is not Powermaster Optimus Prime. It's something but I just can't put my finger on it...

EDIT: I've got it! Paint it mostly blue and give it bunny ears and it's Armada Supermode Optimus combined with his trailer!

I'm pretty leery on what constitutes "classics style." I mean, G2 Prime has a very different look to him than the first round of classics figures. This is only compounded if you include the Energon combiners, the G1 reissues, and the various recolors in your classics collection. There's a lot of different styles just within the official releases. If you toss in 3rd party figs there's even more styles.

But you guys have a point about the proportions. It doesn't bug me, but they are all off.

I have so many movie-ish, classics, generations, WFC, and 3rd Party characters on my Neo-G1 collection that this doesn't bother me.

I don't even group my 'Classics' really. I've just always wanted a Powermaster Optimus Prime that used the Classics/Henkei version of Prime as the base, this one does and it does so well (in my opinion, I like the way the thing looks). I wanted one so bad I tried my hand at making my own, though it looks like total crap compared to this, so yeah, this is totally bought. Just show me a pre-order.

As much as I want a new Powermaster Prime I'm not about to drop trousers for the first one to come along. This just doesn't do it for me. It's just too generic robot in Optimus Prime colours for me. It's a good robot I suppose but Xovergen are too "meh".

The thing is as tall as MP-10. I dread to think how much this will cost! Also, I notice it has been a long time since a trailer picture, is this because it still looks awful in that mode? The robot is shaping up nicely, however :)

There's more pics than shown here. The trailer looks like it always did, but it's not at an angle with Classics Prime, which was my primary concern.

Trailer mode is still kinda weak. Classics Prime is realistic-y while the trailer is decidedly "Cybertronian". But it's still passable as a trailer nonetheless.

Now that I took another look at that size comparison pic, I too feel like the head is a little too small, if it where as big as the MP Prime head it would be perfect.
