Hey, has anyone seen this?

There is a Mothra OP toy coming out!

This looks like the OP + Trailer we've seen listings of. Any thoughts?

I like the alt mode and oddly enough the regular robot mode. Combined mode? :SICK:

It's the behemoth we've all been waiting for. Our insiders in Singapore state the 'Ultimate Optimus Prime' toy features a Voyager Optimus Prime with a large trailer. The toy's class size is still up in the air, but it doesn't really matter right now, we've got images of the biggest version of Dark Of The Moon Optimus Prime. Behold!

Transformers Mechtech Ultimate Optimus Prime Action Figure
With the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie, one of the most iconic characters in the Transformers lore will capture the spotlight as his heroic story becomes the focus of the first-ever 3D Transformers movie. Now, an action figure befitting such an icon will be available with the new Transformers Mechtech Ultimate Optimus Prime action figure. The figure includes the Autobot leader's classic trailer that doubles as a weapons arsenal and is an integral part of the figure's converting play pattern. The Mechtech Ultimate Optimus Prime figure features three modes of conversion – vehicle, robot, and robot with "mech suit." The trailer, which serves as a weapons depot and command center, also converts into a "mech suit" that Optimus Prime shows off when it's time to rumble. Featuring lights, launching projectiles, electronic battle sounds and Optimus Prime phrases, this is the must-have item for kids and fans alike.

Well, I guess those are $80 I'll be keeping (and a lot of space I'll be saving on my shelves/desk). Unless it's mistransformed, that is, or there is some way to improve upon the combined mode, such as removing the ugly wings. Then I might get an Ultra Magnus repaint.

I like how it's the "Ultimate" Optimus Prime with an $80 price tag, yet they can't manage to even paint the fuggin' wheels. But that's probably the least of this toy's issues. Yup, buying this would break my only rule of avoid buying suck...

Looking pretty good thus far, robot is a LOT better than the Voyager version, so I'm glad I won't be getting that. Robot mode still only looks alright, the legs are very good, but the arms and back kibble seem to ruin it a bit. The truck mode looks fairly big, so perhaps (and here's hoping) ROTF Optimus can at least attach to the trailer. Combined mode is pretty disappointing, but I'll wait for better pictures before denying it completely. The description says that the trailer can form ye olde Combat Deck mode, so I can't wait for pics of that.

Look at the back of the combined mode wings - SO MANY MECHTECH PORTS!

It looks alright, albeit not as good as it could be. That being said, at that price, I don't know if a purchase could be justified.

Well, that isn't the voyager we've seen, and with the relatively simplistic transform on the main bot, I'm betting he'll be at or near deluxe-sized.

I don't mind the butterfly wings, but the MASSIVE FISTS OF JUSTICE!(tm) and the Super-Pants Prime styled legs kind of kill it for me.

At least it looks way better than that voyager crap that we have been seeing, I just knew that hasbro wouldn't do prime that much in justice! It isn't a definate buy yet but so far looking to be right after megs and shockwave.

I didn't see an $80 price anywhere, did I miss it? It's a Voyager w/ trailer, so let's hope maybe $50. I'd buy it for that, maybe 60 with some good reviews.

I really wish they'd re-used the Battle Blades Optimus Prime mold and modded it as needed. The arms on this new one are lame, I jsut hope the movie model is not the same. The super mode is a little over the top, even compared to previous Super Primes like Powermaster and Cybertron, pretty nuts on their own. I want to see the command center mode.

Thats the best they could come up with for a combined mode? So is every one happy he has a trailer now? Was hoping for a RID or or a Cybertron homage but i guess not. Thats a nice alt mode but not $80 nice.

I'd like to get one, but I'm thinking mine will stay in truck mode.

Optimus alone isn't bad, however I think they could have spent more time with it, especially the hands. Don't understand why it couldn't have almost been a copy of BB Optimus and added the trailer?
New pics added as I find time.

Huh.

TFM = We are n00bs at making Bayformers and therefore teh suck.
ROTF = Collectors' line, in other words, too complicated for kids.
DOTM = We overcompensate for ROTF by making Armada 2.0.

They really should've stuck with one of the existing voyager molds, because this thing is pathetic. The alt mode and regular robot legs look decent, but that's about it. Arms are fail. Shoulder kibble is fail. Combined is just... not good. Like Armada Prime! I dunno. The only way I could ever see myself picking this up is if it's mistransformed in this pic and gets a Magnus repaint & remold.

I WAS looking forward to this...The robot mode is such a let down...

Hasbro needs to focus on quality rather than silly gimmicks. :BANG_HEAD: (They improve upon Star Wars every time, so what gives?)

This DOTM line is taking a step backwards. But as long as they sell (which they most likely will) to the young'uns of the target customer, it'll be fine(!)

Really hope this isn't the one we've heard will have motion-sensors and such! (If it is, oh dear...)

Hand me my lightsabre; it's the one that says BMF on it...

I've been compiling a scale list (largest to smallest) of the Film Transformers based on; vehicle/alternate modes (with the best dimension data possible), as many official charts I could find & most crucially, the figures I actually own and desire! If anyone would like a bit of assistance in scale or would simply like a peek at the ever-growing list, do say so! ^^

You can kind of see this mode in the superbowl commercial when Prime comes flying in and then he seems to rip it off right about the 24-25 second mark. But this looks in no way as good as that did.
