I'll keep waiting until they make a nice voyager version of "Knight" Optimus Prime. It's probably too much to hope for, but if they struck gold once with Battle Blades Optimus Prime, I believe they can do it again.

At this point, Battle Command Optimus Prime looks to be out best bet for that.

If you can get over his simple transformation (basically turning him inside-out) I suppose he could work. :D

The problem with Battle Command OP is he has WAY to much leg and butt kibble. His bottom half appears to stick out like two inches behind his body. That kinda makes sense if you're using him with the trailer wings, since that adds more stability, but if you intend to show him off like he appeared in the movie without the wings, he looks kind of ridiculous.

i really can't get enthusiastic about all the optimuses. they don't measure up to rotf buster prime, and certainly not with all those different deco's. i'd rather like to see some pictures of takara's Slog

Yeah, that's the sticking point. I'd prefer much better and am willing to wait. Battle Command Optimus Prime just has way, way too much back kibble. Some is okay, understandable, but that's just...crossing the line for my tastes.

No version of Knight Prime will measure up to ROTF optimus.
Have you seen the movie? There's practically no truck stuff in his robot mode.
+ the new (great in my opinion) Hasbro idea to make the transformations a bit more simple.
Those two factors make it impossible.

Still, I was excited about Command Optimus untill I saw the video review with the giant back kibble. I can get over the lower legs bit, but the backpack is kind of killing the figure.

Hopefully Hasbro will also make a voyager Knight Prime.
I think it's a good idea for the main dudes to be voyager sized, have Grimlock be bigger and stick to that. Lockdown is smaller in the movie (That almost never happens, that the villain is smaller than the hero, name one) so deluxe vs voyager looks better than deluxe vs Leader (Ultra-ish Leader).

But I think I'll get Command Optimus, because I can't resist a voyager Knight Prime, eventhough I already have the Leader class figure. He's so awesome :)

i have rotf buster optimus, and none of them from this movie measure up to that toy. they're so incredibly kibble-tastic.
i've seen the movie and it is true that there are no vehicle parts to be found on the bot mode, but i think they could have tried a bit harder to integrate the stuff in to his body. i think they did quite well with leader sentinel prime.

Very true, I have Buster v2 (with mouthplate) and he's a work of art. Masterpiece quality.
But I also love how they did Evasion Prime. Looks so good in robot mode, no kibble whatsoever and he has an altmode that also looks great.

So they can do great things, in this line as well.
Hopefully they'll put more effort as you say in the next version of Prime.
I'm pretty sure there will be atleast one more version of him.
Takara is already upgrading the Leader.

So, Takara is going in and fixing everything but the area that needs it the most. This just keeps getting better. I've got my finger on the cancel button for my preorder of this, but will wait for some more pictures and possibly video.

the head is an homage to the g1 toy where he didnt have eyes, but if you look at the artwork there is a visor actually

borrow WHAT weapons? the only ones that really work for him are the ones that come with the original mold QUE, so, buy it(which is already difficult to get and expensive)so ONLY one of the two get the weapons? did i mention those weapons, accesories and mechtech are exclusive to QUE? you of course can use any weapon you want bot none will really work as well as those
and while i love that takara did aoe jolt with his signature weapons
what the hell with darkside soundwave that comes with nothing, ratchet with a beasthunter upscaled legends bumblebee dagger, and starscream with beast hunters upscaled smokescreen axes, they have weapons that dont make any sense but at least they HAD something
god, im so mad at takara right now
