Energon was a mixed bag, but no one can deny how awesome the Megatron/Galvatron mold was. Cybertron? Optimus and Megatron rocked. Hard. Movieverse, mixed bag, but when they did work, they really wowed everyone.
...now we have a box that unfolds to a truck that looks something like Optimus.
I generally steer away from the idea of leader and ultra class figures. Because lets face it, electronics almost always hinder the figure in some way or another. What's worse is that they're trying it on the oddly proportioned and slender designs of TFPrime, at least in the past many of the bots who used electronics were meant to be boxy.
On the other hand there were cases in the past where all the electronics were relegated to a weapon or trailer. For instance, Hasbro is market testing play sets now, how about a voyager Optimus with electronic trailer? Preferably he should not combine with it and hinder the figure, it's not necessary and honestly they've managed to make the trailer a separate gimmick package in the past.
