I think that was a deleted scene from Ep 3 when he was trying on the armor in case something happened on Mustafar. Sidious didn't want to do any tailoring. :HEADHURTS:

Wow, that Darth Vader makes me cringe. Looks like Napoleon Dynamite in a Vader suit.

Ah well, at least they haven't done anything like ret-con all the Stormtroopers into identical clones of some Australian guy. That would really kill my suspension-of-disbelief.

Has anyone for sure verified that that is a leader class prime yet? I know there was speculation it might be a voyager....if it IS a leader, its definitely a step backwards, with all the kibble and giant rear axle backpack. I've always been optimistic when it comes to the TF movies, but I'm not sure I like this overall design either (just basing on what we can tell from the figure). Where's the chest windows?? Hope the cgi render is better.

Let me answer that with a quote:

Hasbro.Inc wrote:TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS OPTIMUS PRIME Leader Scale Figure
(Ages: 4 & up /Approx. Retail Price: $44.99/Available: May 2014)
The Leader Scale OPTIMUS PRIME figure from Hasbro is part of the TRANSFORMERS brand’s popular GENERATIONS action figure line and is inspired by the upcoming TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION movie from Paramount Pictures.


He looks decent enough, if he really is Leader-sized I will admit he looks too simple to transform for his size.

What some people unfortunately seem to forget that Leader Class and up have been overly simple the past few years, I mean look at Prime's Weaponizers which were roughly the same size.

That looks AWESOME. A bit small for a leader class, though. With a badass sword and shield gun like that, I can't wait to see what he looks like in the movie. His armor kind of looks like a cross between something Medieval and Japanese. Seeing as though Asia is a major part of the movie, apparently, that makes sense.

This particular Optimus Prime looks like "lazy knock off" In my opinion. It is absolutely ridiculous to ask $45.00 for it then it's not even remotely comparable to ROTF leader class in the matter of detail and quality!
Lets just hope that this is not final product .

THE FU** DID i JUST WHITNESSED??? :shock:

the truck is awesome, can't complain about a thing like that.

But the robot mode??? what the hell happened to prime???

Hey Hasbro, I have 10 words for you:

IF IT AIN'T BROKEN DONT F-ING FIX IT, DAMN IT!!!!

ROTF Leader Prime was the summum of the bayverse primes... and then it all went to hell.

Ain't gonna get that at all. not even for the truck mode. It is safer to say now that I will definitively get Masterpiece Soundwave... with all his cassettes...

if that ugly thing is what is yet to come from the movie franchise, hell, it will be Masterpieces only. at least I'll get challengin transformations, quality and true great toys.

Hasbro can take that thing and shove it where the sun doesn't shine. [-(

No one seems to mention the one good thing on Prime: the chrome. After seeing him in action in the movie I might warm up to this design more. Right now it looks really weak and too anime-inspired, but we'll see. Hopefully the sword is like some kind of weapon he finds, not something he just goes around with. Doesn't really fit as an Optimus weapon.

I do have to agree and say it does look more like a Voyager than a Leader. The back kibble isn't bad, just about as much kibble on this one as the ROTF, just handled differently. Hopefully the rest of the Leaders for this line look as good. Leader Grimlock... dang... the thought of it...

Galvatron... please? I still have hopes that he's gunna be in AOE. XD


You are insane. If you think that rotf leader prime had the same amount of kibble. Rotf prime simply had back kibble.. And other than the folded up wheel wells, his back kibble was accurate... This thing however has a ridiculous amount of kibble everywhere.. Huge panels just hanging off.. If you can't see that good for you.. But a lot of us aren't liking the direction hasbro is taking this movie line.

I think what you seem to forget is that the weaponizers weren't leader class figures.. They were weaponizers, and their lower price reflected their simplicity.. This is a true leader class figure with the $45 price tag to boot. The last leader figures we got were bumblebee, sentinel, and ironhide.. And I certainly don't remember a simplicity trend with those.

So you see, no one is forgetting anything. This is brand new and it's bad.. Really bad, and if its any indication of how simple the rest of the line is.. It's a major disappointment to those of us who have actually enjoyed the movie designs, and a decent amount of the movie toys.

And lastly.. This is a $45 toy, what parent is going to buy this for their kid? I've never seen a kid in a toy aisle ask their parents for a leader figure let alone their parents say yes. The leader class and human alliance figures should be aimed more towards collectors, because they are the ones with the money to spend..

I fear hasbro has overlooked the size of their collecting market on this one.

From the looks of it, it's an Anakin figure that you can add armor on to be Darth Vader. Doesn't make any sense beyond being a gimmick, like buying two figures for the price of (probably slightly less than 2 figures).

Hasbro has been making Marvel toys for the last 4 or 5 years but I don't remember why Marvel awarded the license to Hasbro. I know Toy Biz continued making non Marvel comic figures for a little while after but I am not sure if they are still making toys.

I'm hearing theories that this OP was simply "inspired" by the AOE design, which I'm hoping is true. Not exactly thrilled by the design.

Frankly, while I do prefer OP with his classic windshield chest, I'd rather do without it if it's going to be more fake kibble.

Well, I guess I could forgive losing his chest windows ... IF they hadn't given Prime lips ... and changed the color of the truck to blue... and added flames... and given him the line "give me your face" ... and...

Nope. No forgiveness left. ;) Fresh out.

But yeah, all the movie characters get so generic looking because you can't see the vehicle parts in the robot mode. (compare with Masterpiece Prowl, for instance.) This looks like any ole action figure — or often in the movie, they look like just a mass of gray parts moving around. It's hard to even tell them apart.

In short, I think Bay knows how to make amazing, eye-popping ACTION movies (albeit mighty generic ones), but can't make a TF movie respectful of the brand, history, and characters. It's a hodgepodge of too many styles and sources... with a side helping of racist/potty humor.

Ah well. BUT back on the positive. Truck mode looks pretty. And if they bring back Cullen (and hopefully Welker and Berger), that will be a huge victory in the midst of many flops, IMHO. Cullen has shined with amazing, resounding, chilling, kind and heart-felt performances in the three films. I have to give that man a respectful tip of the cowboy hat. (I might have to buy a cowboy hat to do it, but you get my drift.) If he is involved, I know I will still go see the film... even in spite of the missing chest windows.

At first I was going to laugh at you all for complaining about this since it looks like a Voyager with chromed stuff, the hell can you complain about that?
But then I actually read the article and realized this is supposed to be the Leader Class ...

I mean, the excuse of, well this is a new design doesn't really cut it like it did for TF07 Leader Prime, damn this is pretty bad.

His head design seems to be moreso than his chest windows, since there have been many many many Optimus toys that lacked th chest windows but still made the head design a priority.

saucerdo wrote:Can you think of Starscream without the cockpit?
Yup.

saucerdo wrote:Megatron helmetless or without his arm-gun?
Helmetless? Well, every TF has always had a helmet, regardless of their shape. But if you mean Megatron with a different, non-bucket-shaped helmet, then yes indeed. Very easily.

Same without the arm gun.

saucerdo wrote:A non-yellow bumblebee?
He was just black in a mainstream series, so definitely.

saucerdo wrote:Remember why Movie Wheeljack was not popular? Yep, they did mess with his helmet...
Yet, they renamed him to go with his less-Wheeljacky looks. ;)

Not to mention Armada Wheeljack. :P
