That's the one Hasbro's releasing in the Generations line that was seen on display at NYCC last year.

The one Ryan said looked as tall as a Voyager but was told by Hasbro is called a "Leader class" toy.

Are you telling me I just dropped $60 on a "Leader" OP, and Hasbro had a superior one waiting in the wings?

I dunno if it's "superior" since it too received a lot of ridicule back when we first saw it, and has even worse back kibble than the First Edition (the FE's kibble folds back up against the back, while this one's just hangs off the back in large chunks).

This actually looks decent. They actually integrated the truck into the toy decently. That shoulder kibble is actually there in the movie (albeit smaller) and the legs appear to transform a bit. Plus, I suspect that kibble hanging off his back might be able to fold up. Or at least I REALLY hope it does. So if Hasbro gives this a good color scheme and I like the movie I'd definitely pick this up.

Be carefull and wait untill all the cards are on the table.

Looks good! Legs have altmode parts. The side wings may be able to fold up, who knows.
No chrome all over the place. A gun.

I'm still going to wait till the whole wave starts to hit retail and then decide which Prime version I'll get. Hopefully not in three size classes which I did last time :HEADHURTS:

where in the world were you?.. this thing was HUGE news when we first saw it a while ago.. i don't see how that could be considered "waiting in the wings".

they both look to suck equally as much.. and they both look to have a couple good aspects.. but overall, there are more negatives to both than there are positives.

Wow, completely forgot about this figure...

IMO, this figure looks better than the First Edition figure. But it still has issues. Let's put it this way; it's the lesser of two evils.

Really though, they probably should've stuck with the original trilogy design. At least it could be worked into toy form, as was proven by the Revenge of the Fallen Leader. >:oP

Bleh. The backpack on the First Edition compacts better than this one does, but the robot on this looks better and has a more complex transformation.

Dammit, Hasbro.

Oh yeah. That's right. There was something about that, that I didn't appreciate aesthetically. Oh well. Didn't think they'd really make 2 different leaders... I assumed one was actually a voyager, or maybe one was an early version that got axed.

I think you just described the entire movie toy line.

Clearly I was too busy to argue with strangers on the internet about transformers minutiae.

This wasn't an improvement. It was a look-alike with little differences. If ALL of the Toys will be like this, boy, will I be disappointed...

Thanks, but I think I'll get the First Edition and wait for this to show up at T.J. Maxx/Marshall's for half the price. It looks like total rubbish.

Still saying it's a voyager class figure.

The proportions are all wrong. Compare the big chunky legs and feet (which I actually like) to the thin puny arms, especially the upper arms:

Reminds me of the arms and legs on these two:

Compare:

I feel the only real proportional difference between these and more movie-accurate Battle Blades Voyager is that the torsos of the above three aren't as "superhero-y wide" as the torso of this one:

I don't think that's going to be the case. Yes, this is the "Leader Class" they showed back then, but I suspect the whole being part of the Generations line is something of a miscommunication.

They said that there would be Leader Class Movie Optimus released as a preview of the actual line. We got that, it's the terrible First Edition Optimus Prime on Amazon.

This I believe will be the Voyager mold, and this listing here is Takara's premium version. The price does kinda back this up. It's costs about twice as much as a Voyager previously cost from Takara, but limited stuff with premium paint jobs can go up that much. And it's too cheap to be a Takara Leader Class toy with a premium paint job.

The stuff it comes with also matches up with the description for the Voyager range we got at Nuremberg.

They had a whole press release for it and everything saying it's a Generations figure.

Oh wow, I must have missed that.

That is just terrible.
