There doesn't appear to be any difference in their deco from the originals:

I'm still trying to figure out what purpose this set serves.

So uh.. My brain hurts now. Maybe it's for the fans who never got those 2? I have no idea. Like the above poster said. Whats the purpose?

This wouldn't be so strange if the '07 Prime mold wasn't so god awful. I mean, on one hand, I understand why they did both of the 07 molds...but if you can have the 07 Leader or the Rotf Leader/oneofthethousandremolds Prime, you'll want the latter.

At this rate the movie line will be around for another 6 years.


I know what we need, a Bumblebee 3pack!

This Optimus mold is a good candidate for a repaint/customization. Because it looks so different and is bulky and boxy, I'd like to see another Motormaster custom from this mold or RID/Car Robots Scourge. Would look good next to the ROTF Prime

Anyone else notice that it looks like they removed Primes weapon from hanging off his right forearm.

This makes zero sense, especially why they opted for Meg's original (and sh!t hideous) "iceman" paint scheme. The RotF leader Prime mold made the 2007 Prime mold completely obsolete. I got rid of my Premium leader Prime two years ago and never missed him for a minute. The 2007 Megatron mold wasn't bad at all, though, and still love looking at my Premium edition out on display (going up against a RotF Prime, of course!).

YOU!

STOP TEMPTING ME!

I already Customised a 2007 Starscream and a Xover Hulk by mashing them together because I had them twice. Even if I think that the Leader 2007 Movie Optimus Prime is an excellent toy, I have troubles selling my second because he's not popular enough.

So, why not customising it?

Still, my style is to make strange and weird customs. So, what can I do with a 2007 leader OP that would set it appart from the rest while still being transformable? Just repainting him into "Toxitron" or "Scourge" or "Nemesis Prime" is lame.

Any ideas?

Thanks - for reminding me what a horrible piece of garbage 07 'Megatron' was. I'm glad I never bought one...

You would think they'd have put a little more effort into designing the MAJOR villain of the movie....

If they gave megatron a better head sculpt and upscaled him to the same hight as rotf optimus then i would see it being a lil more worth it.

But he just the same? :(

It always was removeable, just requiring a very hard yank to do so.

Back in 2007 when I first got Prime, I thought he looked great, and super movie accurate. Then ROTF came along and I looked at '07 prime again... And wonder if I was high the past 2 years... :shock:

But yeah, it's still a great figure, just that the ROtF one is much better.

Megatron is nice though, better than ROTF with the small and huge arm.

Maybe they just located a bunch of old stock and needed a way to unload it?

"Asian Exclusive"? Why do I see TakaraTomy on the top-right corner of the box?

I think that Prime is actually a pretty cool figure...but if you're going for accuracy, I don't know why anyone would bother since ROTF leader mold is an option.

Let's see, two steps forward, two steps back...

When they make a Leader Megatron based on his DOTM design, which had an actual vehicle mode, rather than "cybertronian pile of crap", I'll care. Until then I'm happy with my RTS G1 Legends Megatron.
