That Optimus is looking better and better. It's actually in-scale, as opposed to the giant Leader Class, and it's more movie-accurate than anything Hasbro's putting out. I just really hope that backpack can fold up...

Left to right:
Premiere Edition Optimus Prime, Lost Age Series LA01 Battle Command Optimus Prime, Movie Advanced Series AD01 Optimus Prime


They are the Japanese counterparts to First Edition Optimus Prime, nothing (there is no Hasbro version of Battle Command OP), and Age of Extinction Generations Leader class Optimus Prime.

Why fold up? Judging by the dimensions, it'll go over Optimus' head if it can be folded up. Either way you are going to be stuck with one of the biggest backpack ever, so why not leave it down and hide the ugliness?

I'd rather have a large, somewhat-integrated backpack than a giant chunk of truck kibble that just hangs loosely from his waist. Plus, it can't be any worse than the First Edition's backpack of doom.

Holy crap, Takara Grimlock looks be-a-eutiful! Literally the only thing I would change on that is removing the forearms and replacing them with some slightly better ones mounted underneath his chest like an actual tyrannosaur rather than on the sides. And that would just be a matter of finding some tiny arms from a model kit (or even modifying these ones) drilling some holes and attaching them with a Revoltech joint.

It also shows where the Hasbro version went wrong. If they'd done the whole dino body in chrome it might have worked. Just having the back and skull (and hence inner legs of robot mode) chromed made it look daft. A shame as I did like the chromed dino-noggin.

But yeah. That Takara Grimlock is SOLD.

Also, any word on the upgraded Takara leader Prime (with the supposed retooling and completely chromed finish)?

Once again, Takara Tomy steps in to make a garbage toy look less garbage. That Galvatron almost looks buyable.

Believe it or not, it's not the backpack that puts me off buying it. It's the V-crotch arrangement with the hip ratchets.

It's funny to me how when Hasbro puts chrome onto random parts of their figures, Takara is REMOVING it. Usually it's the other way around.

I've been trying to figure out what it is about Galvatron that looks familiar in a way. I just put my finger on it! He looks like a minotaur! He's got feet that look like cloven hooves, and his helmet looks a lot like a set of horns from the front.

No, it's the ass-pack of doom. Proportionally speaking it's just a tad worse than the first edition for me.

Sabrblade's video cracked me up so much. What the hell was I watching? :lol:

That battle command Prime looks great from the front. Can the backpack easily be detached?
He has the best scale of all 3 Modern Primes.
That commercial... people get murdered in the movie. They should play that as background music during the killing.

hopefully Hasbro will also make a voyager modern Prime. Evasion is amazing!
