Seibertron.com message board member Chuckdawg1999 has provided us a video review of the Takara Tomy Toys "R" Us exclusive "Rusty" Optimus. This redeco and remold of the Evasion Mode Optimus mold features a plastic with the color of a white chocolate with "rusty" paint apps strewn about throughout the mold. This Optimus also features a head with a faceplate instead of the exposed face of the original.

You can see the video review below:

i really want to like Rusty Prime but i can't. i love the paint job on the cab in vehicle mode but all that plain cream plastic just looks wrong. If it were all painted like the cab it would look amazing and be an instant buy. To expensive or impractical to make i suppose.

sound obivious that people say takara version in truck mode is not movie accuate are the ones who paid more attention to acting, plot and acting like paid movie critics them selfs, its takar version in ruck mode is more accuate movie prime has faded flames, takara version have faded falmes in truck mode, Hasbro veriosn in truck mode is to clean to show flames when looking at truck mode, maybe possibly bullet hole or two on takra version have that Hasbro does no.

Hasbro have rusty look down but they could have added some bullet holes and faded falmes in truck mode to make more accuate I myself would have picked up Hasbro version if it did not come in five pack combo pack really like Hasbro bot mode more than takara combo pack pushed me away

The plastic isn't cream but a very faded gray color.

Because there were a shit ton of grammatical errors.

Aside from the negativity, I really like this Rusty Optimus Prime. I really want it, not matter how much it costs. :)

It pisses me off that they show him in some other colors at first, like more movie accurate, and all the sudden we have an albino prime.

That's not just albino prime. That's Albino-Roadkill-Prime.

Galvatron probably would have looked like Albino-Roadkill Prime if he weren't hijacked by Megatron. That, or Nemesis Prime.

Dispensor is my personal favorite. Just wish he was an actual Mountain Dew machine as opposed to a truck.

The rusting is done well enough and convincingly enough in alt mode to make me want to buy it.

In bot mode though......not so much. In bot mode there should have been more application of paint then wiped off to highlight more details and panel edges with the paint remaining in those wee crevasses and panel lines. With less straight brown "blotches" sprayed on from a spray gun. A little more care in those regards and some grey would have been nice in alt mode. Like in the elbows, shoulders and knees.

IMO.

Are you referring to that tiny picture with the grey parts on it and Japanese writing?

It was grayscaled on purpose. So we couldn't see the new deco.

Actually, the grey pieces are brand new parts, built into the original. New parts are always grey at first to make them stand out more, but also for testing purposes. Ever seen fully colored prototypes on first reveal?

The Official Takara Tomy webite has been updated with images of the latest Lost Age figure. The images show LA13 Nemesis Prime Power Battler in his traditional black, teal and red color scheme. Even though this figure is a repaint of the kid friendly Optimus Prime Power Battler, he still looks striking in Nemesis Prime colors.
