Yeah, those legs are completely different from both the First Edition and the Leader, as the FE has one wheel on each ankle facing backward, the Leader has one wheel on each ankle facing forward, while this figure has no wheels on its ankles but instead two wheels on each of its shins.
The feet are also thinner, and the inside of this figure has a smoother inner legs while both the FE and Leader have chunky, kibble-ful inner legs.
Both the FE and the Leader also have the truck smokestacks rested flush up against Prime's back, whereas they are nowhere to be seen on this toy's robot mode. Now, one could try to argue this by claiming that the trailer wings are blocking them from view. If that's true, then the smokestacks on this figure must not rest right up against this Prime's back like they do on the FE and Leader toys.
The hubcap on the front wheel in truck mode also looks to be different, as here we see it have about ten holes going around its circumference, whereas the Leader's front hubcaps have no holes and the FE's front hubcaps have only five holes that going around the center instead of the circumference. And something like the hubcaps is not something that tends to get remolded for additional uses of a mold. Especially for more uses of it as the same character. Generations FOC Blaster was a unique case since they wanted to make him stand out form Soundwave and Soundblaster and the change fits his fun-loving personality, whereas a more stoic, dull Optimus wouldn't warrant a change in hubcaps for an Optimus remold into another Optimus.
So, yeah, combined with that price, it's gotta be a new mold.
