I'm starting to like this guy a lot more than I used to. He sure doesn't look like Prime to me but maybe he can be someone else.

Looks like he has a maniacal grin, maybe he lost it after the destruction of the Autobot base.

The yellow/red contrast on the cab screams "Quickmix" at me!

Usually any TF that looks like 1988 makes me fangasmic (PCC Leadfoot), but here it's a double-edged sword in that the vehicle mode looks like something the Ninja Turtles should be driving, and I sorta' blamed their competition for killing TF back in the day. Maybe it's the translucent green, I dunno'. Still likely to eventually pick it up.

I want to like it but I... can't. if they took off the front claws and made the panels less jagged, I would love it. The problem is, Optimus doesn't look like this in the show unless he is going to reformat.

It sort of looks like he might have a Gorilla face... but anyway he does look angry. I do like the return to a Flat faced truck.

*POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT*





I think it was hinted at the end of season two that Optimus will definitely need some "fixing." Anyhow, I really like his 'bot mode since I've been getting tired of the "anime proportions," what with the big torso and tiny legs.

He don't look too shabby, does he?

Curiosity: can anyone spot a faction symbol anywhere in the photos so far?

This looks fantastic. We finally have a jetpack voyager figure. I wonder if it comes off though? Either way, excited for how well this is looking so far.

Well, this is the first time i've ever heard you give a hasbro toy a compliment, or say that its even good.
No offence but you have been critical on nearly everything i have seen you post on.

Ugh. That looks...terrible. It's like a knock off of Animated Optimus.

I have to wonder... These toys, will they even see the light of day in the show? I'm thinking not. I'm thinking these toys are toy only and the show models will remain the same.

It's been cited several times that they reuse the CGI models to make different characters. Only a slight head change or color change is all that's needed, much like the toys. This would be a complete Optimus redesign, and I can't see them doing that and trying to keep the costs of the show down.

I have a feeling this guy is a toy only design. Which is what I'd prefer. I don't need to see the characters on the show look like something out of Mad Max.

In my world He will be Joker Prime... Seriously though, I am pretty sure the wings do not detach based on the vehicle mode... Also, when I first saw him I thought about Animated Wreck-Gar for some reason and how this would have made a great Motormaster during Botcon 2011...

Wow! That robot mode is awesome. The best figure coming out this year (price plus size). I really like it. Back to big robot form, not anime scrawny legs, arms transformers. Guess I'm looking forward to a new year after all

Well he definitely was mistransformed in the original Hasbro pics we saw of him. I preordered him earlier and am still happy that I did so. This looks great and I'm glad he comes with the star saber (though I wish it were blue instead of green). My only reservation is that I hope these "upgrades" whathaveyou actually take place on the show. I'm a little hesitant to get the BH remolds of the other figures for that reason. However, I'll risk it with this OP because he looks pretty sweet to me either way!

I wish the windows & sword were blue, but otherwise...looks like one for my random Optimus Prime shelf. :D Love the wings and launchers/jet boosters.

I think the robot mode is kinda cool. Almost an Apex Armor vibe. Not diggn' the truck mode though. Too much Animated meets Cybertron imo.

So with his wings folded back like that in vehicle mode...

Prime is now a dump truck?

Tractor Trailer- Awesome, Ferrari- don't get me started, Monkey- Oy, Fire Truck- Noble, But a dump truck...

I really don't care much about the truck mode. I always display mine in robot mode. The wings makes a cool addition tot he toy. My only vehicle display mode are alternators and binaltechs. Can't beat those modes.

Hell must have frozen over because I actually LIKE this figure. I'm normally not a fan of Prime without the faceplate but I think the psychotic smirk is what's selling me on not modding this figure after I get it. This makes 2 Beast Hunters figures in one day that I would seriously consider getting. I'll still have to see LeoPrime in hand before I declare a "Hat Trick" on the BH series toys but so far I'm starting to warm up to it ever so slightly.

I really like his vehicle mode, with the Mad Max thing he's got going on. Robot mode looks better than I thought too.

I was sold a while back, but I feel better about that choice now.

Just wish the sword wasn't so very green :-(

And he's sold out on eBay. I'm getting a real Cybertron vibe from this guy and I like it. Is it just me or does his head look a bit small?

This was an easy pass, now I'm on the fence. If it wasn't for the green I might've picked him up no matter what. As it is, he will have to be like this in the show before I even consider getting him.

I'm still on the fence, he's nowhere near as esthetically pleasing as the FE.

Y'know what? You're absolutely right. Didn't even remember Synth-En until you brought it up. #-o

Perhaps Ratchet perfects his formula and returns to the scene of the crime and revitalizes him? :-?

OR Knock Out is the one that experiments with it, like the writers said he would do. >:oP

If it's on Optimus' dead body, I've grown to respect the writers a little bit more. :twisted: That is, until Optimus becomes good again and so they don't kill one of the moneymakers.

Mold looks BH like, so it suits me, but the translucent parts on him look like he's neon. :SICK:

I hope Takara's version shows better detail on him, like a show-accurate Star Saber that's blue, and darker colors.

Whoever said "Shut up and take my money!", don't do it for this guy...yet. Wait for Takara to release their versions of the BH toys (I hope they look more superior :BOWDOWN: )
