Transformers Prime Weaponizer Optimus Prime

Weapon: Neptune Sword
Today's official reveal from the Transformers Facebook page is none other than Mr. Prime himself. This Optimus looks to be entirely different from the Robots in Disguise Voyager and shows no signs, yet, of a mechtech styled weapon or sword. Also missing are the poorly received translucent blue forearms. Check him below or head over the Transformers Facebook page by clicking here.

Weaponizers are the new Leader Class, IIRC. He looks decent enough. Better than Bumblebee anyway. Don't see myself getting it though.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

This guy is the one with the pop-up gatling style guns, right?
I guess it's the switch on the chest panel.

And I agree with craggy, this should be Leader class.

I'll reserve judgement for when I see the transformation. If it's good then this is a definite for me because of the lack of FE in America, and the powerizer has it's problems too.

Looks like he's got quite the backpack there. I'm assuming that's where the pop up guns are stored.

Looks good. Though, the FE Voyager still looks to have the best body proportions of the CGI model.

Ugh, not Energon Optimus Prime again. :evil:
Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

Thank you.

PS: I also need a spare set of smokestacks for Armada Supercon Optimus Prime, AKA Bendy Prime.

Cheer up YoungPrime, you might want to tune into the homepage tonight. You will probably get to see all 8 Generations and maybe, a little more. :D

I think this is the first we've seen of Weaponizer Prime.

Either way I'll stick with the FE version too.

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
Wow, uh....just....wow.

He's a box with limbs and head, basically. Those legs look awful.

How is it that they took an evolutionary step back on almost everything??

2006: Classics. Not perfect (Rodimus), but impressive (Jetfire)
2007: TF1. Not perfect, had gimmicks that were neat the first time.
2008: Universe 2.0. Now...we're getting somewhere. Impressive original molds.
2008: Animated. Mixed bag for the fans, but incredibly show accurate.
2009: ROTF. Complexities that were sometimes necessary, sometimes not, but most could agree that the engineering, at least, was spectacular.
2010: RTS/HFTD. Repaints, repaints, repaints. Of the few new molds, some were really impressive and stood out above the rest.
2011: DOTM. Some figures were nice upgrades, though undersized, while other molds were completely WTF territory.
2011: Generations. Figures look good, but some are waaaay too simplistic, not enough oomph.
2011: First Edition. Figures look good, rather complex, gives you hope.
2012: PRID. Takes several steps back, adds gimmicks that are a waste of money and useless.

The pattern seems to be "We got to a point where we peaked, now we're downhill." Followed by "Oooh, we're gonna try!" followed by "Naw. Let's phone it in."

The Leader Classes are one set of figures that usually impress and wow. They have for quite some time. 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 can't wait to see what's next, at Toy Fair.

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.

I will buy this if they come up with a Weaponizer Megatron. But if they either never do, or if looks like crap with legs and arms that transforms into crap with wings (-cough- M1 Megatron -cough-), then it's a no-go.

Weapon: Dual-Sonic Disrupter Gun
I just returned from a local Target hoping to find SW but instead I found 2 BB, 1 CJ, and one Prime. Both Prime and CJ were just horrid in hand up close. :SICK: That dumb-ass gimick weapon and that stupid blue that is a part of the mold just totally sucks ass! CJ sucked as much ass with that freakin' hole on the top of the alt mode. But I finally figured out why I wasn't too into OP in this new series. It's his solid black feet for all 3 Prime figs, and I don't dig it. IMHO I think they should just be blue just like previous Primes.

At lease Animated put a black trim around the base of Prime's feet and the rest was blue. So why couldn't they do that sh*t? Well they suck ass so just pass me Soundwave...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Most Movieverse Optimus Primes had gray feet. TF: RID (2001) Optimus Prime had black feet. Armada Optimus Prime had gray feet (Robot Mode) an black feet (Super Mode). Energon Optimus Prime had dark gray feet. Cybertron Optimus Prime had black feet. A varaint of G1 Optimus Prime had red feet. Star Convoy had black feet. G2 Hero Optimus Prime had white feet. G2 Go-Bot Optimus Prime had yellow feet. Sports Label had white and red Nike feet. SG Optimus Prime had dark purple-gray feet. :-B
