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...

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.

Posted by Delta Magnus on July 21st, 2014 @ 2:35pm CDT
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)?

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.

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!

Indeed. I think I'm going to buy AoE Optimus Prime and stick some googly eyes on his windscreen now.

But yeah, I do think we could do with a slightly sillier take on the Transformers. I haven't watched past the first ep of Prime, but from what I'm aware it was quite grim and serious as Transfoers shows go, much like the latter bits of Beast Wars (and like BW it was also pretty awesome) and AoE was pretty bloody depressing. The last "silly" show we had was Animated (which I really need to watch). Maybe the next Transformers cartoon should be done by the Japanese? We haven't had a "main" Transformers anime series since Cybertron (Go! doesn't count as it wasn't released here). RID from what I'm aware (never watched it...) was a little bit too silly, but did have some very funny moments (such as any time Sky-Byte was on the screen). I'd like to see something similar to RID done again- a 2D Transformers anime with an overall humourous tone- perhaps affectionately mocking the sillier bits of the franchise (the absurd scale issues, blatant toy-pushing, some of the crappier series like Energon and, umm, Kiss Players)...

And after some Takara Tomy exclusives in their package, why not take a look at another, this time out of its plastic prison? Thanks to Seibertron.com user chuckdawg1999 Movie Advanced, we have a video review of the EZ Collection Anniversary Exclusive Clear Optimus Prime - one of many repaints of Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime. Check it out below!

Done in a smokey clear red and black Takara has decided to re-release Prime once again as a store exclusive for the movie line. If you like the mold you probably already have it.

Yeah it's on all the one step and power battler figures. It's to unlock weapons in the stomp and chomp Grimlock. Problem is the larger Grimlock comes with an Optimus Prime figure with magnets in both it's feet making the other figures pointless.

Courtesy of the HKGTF Facebook page, we get out first prototype glimpse of the Takara Tomy Movie Advanced Line AD31 Leader Class Armored Knight Optimus Prime, showing off which parts will be modified from AD01 for the release, including head, arms, chest and feet. We can also report that the figure will feature new weapons, and the new head will allow a mask/unmask gimmick without. Check out the mirrored image below!

Oh snap, this could be the first movie-accurate version of the Leader mold, since all other releases of it had a chest based on concept art rather than based on the movie's CGI model.

Probably to avoid the backpack being a floppy mess of hinges and panels. From what I've seen, Prime's backpack is very thin, and it would probably need completely re-engineering from scratch to get it to compress better.

Still, there's always a chance a 3rd party company might release a replacement backpack that folds up better (WITHOUT partsforming, please) like they did for ROTF Prime's hands and swords.

They basically did with a Voyager version with trailer in Japan. Entirely new mold!

The problem with Battle Command OP is he has WAY to much leg and butt kibble. His bottom half appears to stick out like two inches behind his body. That kinda makes sense if you're using him with the trailer wings, since that adds more stability, but if you intend to show him off like he appeared in the movie without the wings, he looks kind of ridiculous.

i really can't get enthusiastic about all the optimuses. they don't measure up to rotf buster prime, and certainly not with all those different deco's. i'd rather like to see some pictures of takara's Slog
