Seibertron.com is extremely proud to present the newest installations of its world-renowned high-quality Transformers galleries. Today, we bring you the latest incarnation of the proud leader of the Autobots, in the form of Transformers: Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Optimus Prime, and the movieverse debut of an original comics character, Generations Deluxe Drift!

The new AOE Leader Class toys are closer to what we used to call Ultra Class from previous Transformers toy lines such as the Unicron Trilogy. This is the second Leader Class gallery from this line, the first one being Grimlock from just the other day. At first glance in vehicle mode, Optimus seems to be Voyager Class sized in comparison to the Amazon.com exclusive First Edition figure, which is more in step with Leader Classes of past figure lines, just to give you an idea of the scale. However, the robot mode is where he regains quite a bit of that lost size. While still not quite measuring up to the First Edition's stature, this mold makes up for it, in design and features, what it lacks in size.

The three striking features of this version of Optimus are the well placed use of chrome paints that really stand out on him, plus he also just so happens to be a movieverse Leader Class figure with a waist swivel! And to round out the wow factor? Rubber tires!

As for Drift, the blue samurai debuting in the Michael Bay universe, supposedly based on the Decepticon-turned-Autobot character introduced by IDW Publishing (and who showed up in our galleries earlier), we know very little for now, other than its alt-mode being a 2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, and it features multiple swords and traditional samurai looking armour and helm with face mask.

Check out all of our pics to decide if you'll be picking up Leader Class Optimus or Deluxe Drift. When you do find them, please make sure you use our sightings section to let others know, and where!

WOAH!!!! SINCE WHEN ARE OPTIMUS PRIMES WINDOWS F-ING YELLOW?!?!?!?! I was going to pick him up just to have him even with his other issues, but Yellow f-ing windows may kill it for me. Everything before showed clear.

A little disappoited that the new Leader class comes up to about Ultra-ish while still asking for $45. Not cool. [-(

Optimus looks okay, but the shoulder kibble is what gets me. Maybe if I see him on clearance.

I like Drift, but there's two things that bother me: his face and his size. The detailing on his face look oddly proportioned, and compared to Generations Drift, he's definitely a little on the small side. Like I said, I'll think about them if they go on clearance.

Hey, at least it's better than the Impossible Toys Tetrajets. XD

I'm liking Leader Grimlock the more I look at him. The robot mode is fantastic, and I reckon if you moved the dino arms the T-Rex mode would look much better.

What are those on the left? Is that a second pair of swords, or are they sheathes? They're pegged onto his kibble backpack in a bunch of the pictures.

Drift lives up to his reputation. This is the ugliest TF I have ever seen and I collect G2. It. Hurts. My. Eyeballs.

They're a pair of second swords, sorta like how Generations Drift had a pair of smaller swords.

In a couple pics, it shows him holding them so I'm assuming their supposed to be his equivalent of Tanto swords.

I don't mean to sound so negative lately but Drift looks like a bizarre and terrible knockoff of Alternity Megatron or something.

I'm kinda uncertain about Drift... Guess I'll just decide on site to pick him up or not...

I'd normally call any new change to Bayniverse Op refreshing, this time I agree. Holy frack, it looks like his driver built up 30 urine-bags on a nonstop cross-country trip, then got nailed by one of those earthquakes going through Oklahoma.

Is the idea to just surrender to the cruel forces of photodegredation and pre-yellow any potentially clear plastic?

For that matter: RUBBER TIRES?!? BOOOOOOOOOOO! The ones on my RID Op and Magnus just started cracking, so before I buy any new TF that has them, I'd gladly give my money to anyone making some snap-together Shapeways replacements for as many TFs afflicted with them as possible, especially Masterpiece. Someone please enlighten me as to whether there's some preservative I can apply to prevent cracking, but even if so, rubber tires suck for longevity even worse than die-cast metal does for paint chipping. I don't care what popular consensus and nostalgia-blinders have to say about it, check ye elder toys' tires and despair, people.

As for Drift? I foresee some worthwhile redecos involving some actual paint apps meeting that mask, but what we got here looks hilarious at best.

Maybe Drift's face is a way to appeal to young women who love doing duckface in their selfies?

Other than that, I'm baffled as to why they'd knowingly put such a goofy face on a 'bot.

Hey Seibertron! Do you have any pics comparing the vehicles and robot modes of the DOTM Ultimate Class Optimus Prime with both the First Editon Optimus Prime and this Leader Class Optimus Prime? If not, will you please see if you can get some? :D

Exactly what I was thinking!

Other than that face, I am okay with Drift.

The tires on mine broke only a few years ago. Now I am not sure where the tires are because I keep losing them.

I just really don't like those rubber tires at all.

A little curious about that Bugatti with a samurai face. I know drift is always a more Japan-ized character (sword and all), but this is just weird. They can have it transformed into a Lexus LFA and I'm all good.

Hopefully we'll see the Drift mold with a different head sculpt eventually, because the rest of it is pretty darn good...just that head...ugh.
