I don't understand the hate people give this figure. "G1" Prime in AOE was complete trash and is accurately represented in this figure. Give it love for its accuracy.

Well, I for one don't "hate" it, but I do want the one that tries for accuracy in both modes instead of this one.

Hasbro's Platinum Edition attempts to make both the robot and vehicle modes movie-accurate:

In this figure's robot mode, all the part that are gunmetal were closer to blue in the movie, while all the tan parts were closer to red, in the movie. So while the colors aren't an exact match, the Platinum Edition at least tries to match its deco's layout with that of the movie model's deco layout.

Whereas the Takara Rusty Ver. just makes Optimus look like a bloodstained albino from head to toe, with its mostly non-contrasting single-color deco.

Well, I'm not really in the market for another Optimus Prime at the moment anyway, but I'd totally buy one of those Takara Primes and do a little bit of repainting and conversion work to make him into a Zombiecon.

So that Optimus Prime Platinum Edition is in the "Breakout Battle" set? I was wondering why he looked so much better than this one.
Anyone know who is going to be selling the "Breakout Battle?" I ran into the Optimus Prime / Grimlock one at Kmart.

I am guessing too it will be along the same price point $59.99...

Dat Optimus Platinum! :x It's not an MP. Anyone have a picture of the Canadian box to see if there's french on it? I Really, REALLY want to buy this. And I want to buy this in Québec.

As for the Takara one, holy ****. He DOES look like bloody roadkill. Hell, he'll be more at home in Silent Hill as one nightmarish and gory meat-monster! :SICK:

Wow. At first I was 100% convinced that Takara was the way to go. Not anymore. However, I'll be damned if I'm going to pay Hasbro for a bunch of bots I don't want to get the domestic version, which I noticed does not have his battle mask on. So, there are physically no changes and it's part of a multipack. No thanks. Takara's is almost cool, but not for $65. Looks like I'm sticking with the regular G1 homage only. Oh well. If two companies can't get this guy right, then fuggit.

I actually prefer Hasbro's not having a faceplate over Takara's having one, since Optimus's mouth was very much exposed for the majority of all his scenes in the movie during which he had this body.

I'll take a mouthplate on a more polished version like the Autobots United 5-pack version, but leave the dirtied version mouthplate-less.

You could make an easy custom Pyramid hat and add some "blood" on the mighty BH Meat CLeaver for something awesome!

Have a shoop that I made just to show how awesome it would look:

Thanks to Photobucket user MASABON1980 we get some in-hand images of the Transformers 4 Lost Age of Extinction Advanced Series G1 Grimlock. This is Takara's take on G1 Grimlock from the AOE Voyager mold and has some differences from the Hasbro SDCC G1 Colored Grimlock. For one thing it doesn't have a chrome head. Which do you prefer? Let us know in the Seibertron.com forums.
We've mirrored a few images below for your viewing pleasures and for the full complement of pictures you can check them out here.

I wish it wasn't an exclusive, I probably would have bought it! It's probably the best version of this mold so far. I don't really need that much chrome, it tends to look tacky on modern figures.
