Thanks to Seibertron.com user Manterax Prime and the TF Yuki Twitter account, we get a look at the Takara Tomy version of the Age of Extinction (Lost Age in Japan) Premier Edition Leader Class Optimus Prime. Another Twitter user, Akira TF also posted an image a couple of days ago, revealing the figure to have no discernible differences from its Hasbro counterpart (click here for the full gallery). Check them out below!

Well, looks like Takra's whole line of "more realistic decos" is full of shit then.

well, you've obviously never seen a transforming alien robot that changes into a truck and rips faces off! clearly, both Takara and Hasbro have, and both thought they looked like shite.

I nearly lost my tea through my nose reading that. :lol:

Maybe its the start of Hasbro and Takara sharing manufacturing? That way they can both bring production costs down by doing one mass production, instead of doing wildly different versions? Has\Tak can just slap paint on in slightly different places to give collectors the "choice".... or maybe Takara are just being cheap with their Optimi-Kart toy?

To be more accurate, this transforming alien robot doesn't change into a truck; he carries a folded-up truck on his back and hides inside it.

I will keep my eyes open when we get accurate toys I will spend my money. I am an adult collector, I want accuracy to the film and complicated transformatios. This is what make me enjoy transformers. The complexity of the toy.

MOTHER OF ALL BACK KIBBLE!

Man, that's quite a disapointment. I can accept some backpack but this is ridiculous. Also, massive shellforming going on here. Oh, I know, this is:
TORTOISE PRIME!
Paint it in green like that other one and we're all set.
At least, the truck mode is awesome.

One thing for sure, is I WILL buy it anyway. However, I'll wait for the innevitable 30$ sale.

Apparently "Premiere Edition" = "First Edition".

Also, Alfes 2010 posted more pics of it - http://higekumatoytoy.blog60.fc2.com/blog-entry-2180.html

It has been less than a week since I got this figure and the chrome is already rubbing off the grill and all over the back of his legs. I'm an adult collector and this is a slap in the face. :-x I paid the premium and hoped for the best but have contact Hasbro for a return label and refund. This is the first figure I will be sending back to Hasbro. They promised a full refund and I will use the money toward hopefully better figures down the line or when the Masterpiece Smokescreen hits TRU.

If you bought it from Amazon how will Hasbro give you a refund? Hasbro doesn't even have it up for sale on HTS yet, so I'm pretty sure only Amazon can give you a refund if you really want it.
Also, you're complaining over chrome wearing off? That happens on a lot of things with chrome.

You should've expected it.

Wow, chrome already coming off? That sounds pretty bad.

Hopefully the regular version has those parts metalic or just a nice dark grey.

I was expecting it :-B ...not just 4 days after receiving it :-x . No one has touched the figure but me. Unless I have acid coming out of my pores...this should not have happened so quickly. Hasbro is going to issue me a refund as I have a reference number and they have a pre paid shipping label on it's way to me as well.

The "ONE" time? Most of their movie toys have been identical releases ever since the first movie. Only a handful have been different between the two companies.
