Autobase Aichi teases us with a little photo with big proportions. When it comes to movie figures, Takara's going to do things differently. Receiving some info from Kapow-Toys and compounded that with our own sources, Takara's UA-01 Jetwing Optimus Prime will be completely different from Hasbro's Ultimate Optimus Prime.

Although not officially confirmed, our sources say that Buster Prime will be used as a base, and the subsequent add-on parts will not form a trailer. And just like the picture says below, it's "BIG". For Ironhide fans, get a nice look at the scout-sized "Cyberverse Commander" variant of the character. Throw in some Bumblebee there in too for the fans of the yellow Camaro.

Although it isn't the best picture, that figure looks rather promising.

This Prime is looking pretty awesome; now we need a leader Megatron and Shockwave to balance it out!

if that picture is right it would mean a figure about 30 inches tall HOLY CRAP!! =P~ =P~ =P~
THIS I WOULD HAVE TO GET! (if true)

edit..hopefully this isnt another rumor like rotf devastator being 2ft tall that was a real letdown.

Oh yeah! DOTM Ultimate Prime looks so damn dumb, his trailer doesn't even look like it does in the movie...but this looks BADASS! ROTF leader Prime is the best and I was hoping it would get something like this for DOTM!!!!! :grin: Maybe it'll come to the states like Battle BB did for Costco.

Eh guys, hate to throw this in but he may not be as big as we had hoped. The size shows he's 260 mm or 26 cm which is a mere 10 inches in height. I've compared Movie Voyager Prime and RotF Leader Prime and correct me if I'm wrong, but Voyagers come closer to those 10 inches than Leaders. Which brings me to this: this may be another attempt at releasing that cancelled Jetpower Optimus Prime, only with the Battle Blades mold instead of the first movie Voyager. Don't quote me on that tho, my size perception is lousy :oops:

Though I'm not convinced by the picture, if Buster is the base for this new Prime, I will absolutely shell out the money to import him again. Buster is still my absolute favorite Prime I own.

And those gatling guns kick all sorts of ass. :APPLAUSE:

It's a 2, trust me. If it was 760 mm or 76 cm, he'd be bigger than Fortress Maximus: a whopping 2'6"! :shock:

His width is listed as 480mm, so that would line up to 260mm in height.


No Buster Prime = No want...

:-B

If you look at the sides of his legs, you can see the folded up side panels from the Leader OP mold. BB OP's legs don't transform that way, so I would guess that this uses the Leader mold. Whether it's the Hasbro or Buster version remains to be seen, but considering it's Takara I'd guess it's Buster Prime.

Somebody do me a favor and size up RotF Leader Prime and Battle Blades Prime? Inches or metric is fine ;;)

This is stupid. Way too much... why not put a tank on his head, guns on his butt...guns on his feet, etc...no wait..why not just make him a big giant gun.

Leader Prime checks in at 10 in (~254 mm) and BB OP is about 7 in (~177 mm).

Since the 260 mm on the picture only seems to measure to the top of his head, it's conceivable that it's the Buster Prime mode. The slightly different feet would only add a small bit of height, and that would be countered by his spread legs. (Actually, I just realized I can't tell if there is anything added to his feet.)

However, if the 260 mm measures up to the top of the wings, it's more likely to be the BB OP mold (or another voyager Prime).

ROTF: Approximately 1' 2"

Battle Blades: Approximately 8"


That is judging by the size compare of ROTF to Movie Prime, after that I looked at the Battle Blades Prime to ROTF size compare.

I don't know if it is the exact measurements, but its pretty darn close. ;)

Yeah, your height perception is lousy! :D Leader Prime is 10 inches tall, voyagers are closer to six inches.

I assume that IF Buster Prime is used as the base then it'll be part of the package if the wings don't form anything else. With any luck it'll be a version with nice crisp white lines around the flames AND have a faceplate.
