OCTA forum member STL has posted a toy review of the Takara Tomy Transformers Dark Of The Moon DA-15 Jetwing Optimus Prime. The base figure of Optimus Prime has been slightly modified for the brand new Jetwing parts.

However, according to STL, the Jetwing parts are still able to attach onto the old Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime.

Oooooooh, the base figure is the Leader version, not the canceled Voyager version. Oops, my bad. :lol: I really like how it came out. :x =P~

I have to admit I like the display value of the 3 leader class primes together, normal, Jetfire and Jetwing.

However, for me, I'm putting my leader class Primes in storage and using battle blades Voyager Prime with my movie stuff.

While I'll admit that I'm not too happy about the lack of chrome, I have to say it still looks to be a better buy than Hasbro's Ultimate Prime.

For one, ROTF Prime actually looks exceedingly accurate to the CG model in both appearance and transformation. The Ultimate Prime has the entire front section of the truck as the arms, wheels and all...

Not to mention, the Jet Pack of Jetwing Prime actually looks like what we saw in the trailers.

Something I gotta say...First of all "crappy toy"? IMO the gatling look detailed and the jetwing look awesome compare to the Ultimate version Hasbro did.

Secondly...You do realize Hasbro and Takara both make the toy designs right? That means if a Hasbro toys sucks what you basically saying is Takara sucks too...So really is this REALLY the first time? Try to think about it dude.

Lastly,Takara Tomy isnt a perfect toy company. They make mistakes too...So dont give me crap "Oh I never thought Takara would do a crappy toy!"...Try consider the Henkei,Binaltech/Alternity...Think about it...Takara done atleast one crappy toy on each line...So dont give me crap "Oh it's the first time Takara screwed up !" >.<

On topic...Awesome add-on IMO. Though I wish Takara would release just the Jetwing parts >.<...Cause I really dont need another Leader Prime xP.

I agree, this armour is okay, but it just doesn't look like it can form anything. It looks a tad out of place on such a detailed figure. I also really can't be asked to cough up a huge amount of money for an Optimus I already have.

The Ultimate on the other hand, forms a PROPER trailer, and I'm sure with decent transformation (not the mistransformations seen before) the combined bot mode will look great.

seriously?... you would choose hasbro's ''ULTIMATE, sorry,''pretty princess fairy prime'' over this. yes it lacks in detailing but the figure itself has to be better. the only reason i would ever get ultimate prime is if i couldn't afford takara's jet prime, or i want the trailer. :BANG_HEAD:

Actually, no toy has gotten the correct look. Prime only has 1 pair of wings, not 2.

The other pair is the tailfins from his jet boosters

Gotta agree with you, Fairy Princess Prime is a huge P.O.S. compared to this. I really like Jetwing Prime, but I don't really want to buy another Leader class(I already have the ROTF Leader class). If they did a Voyager version though, I'd be all over it.

Very disappointed with the lack of silver, chrome and white lines around the flames, but not surprised. I suppose they had to cut corners if they were to add all those extra components. Glad I decided against ordering this.

I wish they'd keep the complexity grading the same. As far as I know, most figures come with a scale of 0 to 5 and most are graded 2 or 3. This is now classed as a 3 and is the highest level. Makes it seem like nothing more than an arbitrary box art feature.

Nice to see they've made minor improvements to even further improve the accuracy of the leader Prime mold... however, Prime now appears to have an erect penis. Be careful drybrushing that, Radicons!

actually i dont have any leader prime, so im considering this one, even if it doesnt have the chromed parts
and even if the ULTIMATE is huge, i think is just crap, the armor, the optimus alone
so i dont care and this is more accurated, so im really thinking about getting the jetpack optimus

So does this mean that later on the Jet-pack parts will be sold seperately?

they could've found a better way of incorporating the jetpack & guns in vehicle mode, robot mode looks ok but the truck with the crap on the back is horrible & just looks stupid. It cant be that hard just use the cybervers version as a template and add a few joints or an extra part. Seems takara is getting as lazy as hasbro.

Posted by dirk2243 on June 13th, 2011 @ 1:04pm CDT
It looks really over sized honestly. In robot mode it looks ok, but probably could be a bit smaller. "If" I were getting it, I'd paint it, but I'm going to get the Prime w/ Trailer. It will stay in truck n trailer mode on display.

This guy is decent, but I do believe more work could have gone into it. (yes, same with the trailer prime)

I already own ROTF Leader Buster Prime, and I really miss the chrome and superior paint-apps in this new toy. That said, I can't deny this Jetwing Leader Prime looks awesome. Totally bad-ass !

Is it better than Ultimate Prime ? Maybe yes, maybe not. I don't care, I know I will end-up getting both at the end ... :-)

Again, I just don't understand the point of not having the chrome finishing in order to save some US$ 20 or 30 on the final price this already so expensive figure.

Gotta say I am not impressed, the grey plastic makes it look VERY cheap, FFS takara you're already charging a lot for this toy, whats another few dollars/yen for some chrome? Oh well, looks like I'll be getting Ultimate Prime then, looks a lot better, and will actually have a trailer.

Seeing this only reminds me how much I regret not being able to afford Buster Prime. The wings still don't look accurate and the "hasbro" look doesn't make this worth the price.

I do hope he ends up as a leader version here in the states as the voyager, ultimate, and deluxe DOTM Primes don't do the CGI model justice.

Looks pretty cool, but not worth the price. My Hasro Leader Prime is good enough.

Not crazy about the abundance of gray plastic. The pictures of the wing pack on Buster Prime look much better to me. Now, if they make a premium repaint of this set, I'll buy it and display Buster in alt mode.

I'm not sure, but I don't see any hook or blade attachments for the arms. If anything that looks like it improves on the poseability for this mold, especially if you don't want to have Prime in a fighting pose all the time.

That's because it's Buster Prime. His tanks transform into a gun.

If I had to choose, I'd pick this one over Ultimate OP. Sure, the mismatched gray and that weird "dog-penis" thing on his crotch are kind of a turn-off, but it's nothing a little silver paint can't cure. I like customizing my TF's, anyway. Ultimate OP, on the other hand, has an inaccurate jetpack, and WAY inaccurate bot mode. While the trailer's nice, but I just can't deal with the inaccuracy.

Don't really care for the "flying truck" mode, but I'm going to display him in jetwing bot mode, so there's no problem there.

I agree. This is the much better choice of the two. Considering you now have this backpack as an option, there really is no need for the transforming trailer. If anything, it now seems like a waste of money and time, to be honest.

I'm thinking a 3rd party or someone should create a trailer that could hold this thing (if it folds down), or give instructions on how to make one of your own.

Ultimate Prime looks great in vehicle mode.
TakaraTomy Optimus looks great, but the trailer is just ridiculous with all of the guns sticking out of it.
This guy seems to be the best one, so far. Give him a trailer and he'll be close to perfect.

Oh, and an accurate paint job wouldn't hurt...

My thoughts exactly. With a trailer to house the jetwings, this would be the perfect movieverse Optimus. I wonder if third party companies are interested in making something like that?

I'm wondering if the trailer for MP-10 Convoy [pre-ordered, major wallet damage] could be used for the ROTF/DOTM leader class OP truck? It won't be accurate, but it would be cool to have a leader class trailer.

From the pics, it looks like the swords have been removed. Then again, the owner of the figs could have removed them himself, so it's hard to say.

I hate to be the one to spoil the plot for TF4 but I'm reasonably sure that the Earth is going to be assaulted by an entire force of pissed off Gundam Fighters wanting to kick the **** out of Prime and the Autobots and take back their stolen armor. 8-}

On a more serious note, I have to say that this ranks right up there with just about every other DotM toy I've seen. :SICK:

You guys do realize the wings are adjustable on the ultimate Prime and they aren't stuck in the butterfly position, right?

I'm not really digging this one, it's just Optimus with an awkward backpack. I'd rather get the other one.
