With all new reveals of Autobot alt modes recently, It is about time we get to see the newish look for the big bot himself. Michael Bay has posted an image of Optimus Prime's new look. He takes on more of a hybrid look between previous movies and Transformers Prime.

Michael Bay wrote:The completely upgraded, custom-built Optimus Prime from Western Star (a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America).

Man look at all that chrome, so shiney I can see myself in it :D
The next question is, will his robot size be larger too :-?

He'd better have a trailer... And it'd better be bitchin...

This one looks more aerodynamic and is probably a better truck technically than the Peterbuilt, but its just too curvy for Optimus. Prime needs to be a brick of a vehicle mode, this truck would better suit Rodimus Prime, if he ever appears in the movieverse.

I hope there's more of these to come, as Bay said a 'convoy' of autobots, and by my books, two cars and a truck doesn't justify a convoy.

It's as if they weren't standing out from the crowd already by being a convoy of shiny concept race cars. The movie Prime is like "Hey cons, I just beheaded your dear leader Megatron and destroyed Cybertron; If you have any problems with that, you won't have a hard time lookin' for me :BOT: "

Now if only the toy have that amount of chrome, otherwise we'll be seeing cheap grey plastics till the Asian Exclusives show up.

Mind you G1 Mirage was single seater race car so that would have limited his area of operation.


Not to mention not even halfway through season one, EVERYONE knew about them, so the whole "Robots in Disguise" thing was pointless.

Didn't Michael Bay claim they were headed a different direction?
This looks like more of the same.

The Bugatti could be Bluestreak, if Bay took his name too literally...

Someone on TFW2005 has done a nice PhotoShop job on Prime that improves him a great deal (I can't upload the pic as im on my phone). I think the biggest problem with this truck is the oversized hood bump thing, and the ridiculously out of place car wing mirrors.

I'd like to see Rodimus myself.

New direction? Maybe the main villain won't be a prime like the last 2 films.

This is so awesome!!! I like the race look and the more exotic cars :grin: . I mean think about it...the Cons have more fliers but we get the ground speeders :-? . I'm looking forward to what will come of these new designs. I'm thinking with the added bulk of Prime's truck mode that we may actually get a movieverse figure that is proportionated properly and doesn't have exposed hands, arms, feet, head syndrome going on. There is a lot of area to work with in that extended cab to hide his robot parts. I'm hoping there is a snazzy new trailer to boot too. I'm not a Bay fan but let's see what happens as this line up looks promising. I'm trying to remain as "Optimus"tic as I can with this re-launch of the brand and movieverse. :BOT:

the new optimus prime. looks good.


Uh ohhh I love how this is one of the first things I woke up to today! Great way to start the day. :BOT:

I agree. I really like the way this looks.

It's very funny because recently I purchased a RTS Optimus and I love the figure.

A couple of days ago I'm just messing around with it and thought to myself "They should really have the next design be G2 inspired"

Which is kind of what it looks like to me. Considering this is the second generation of movies.

I would be very pleased if he looked like this


With the sword too and Optimus will actully hold it, not having his arm transform into a sword.

I never really like the whole hand/arm transformers into weapon thing. But I guess it grew on me due to watching Prime. They are Transformers anyway.

Is that a real truck? I know it's customized, but is it still close to the original truck or is it some crazy Hollywood fantasy truck? It just looks soooooo much like a dream truck a little kid would draw up (a compliment).

It is a completely custom made truck created just for the movie. So a Hollywood fantasy truck

He looks ridiculous flamed out to the tits like that. Like was mentioned earlier....i thought Bay was going a different direction with this movie? Looks like more of the same but a hell of a lot shinier.

I also very much dislike that style of truck. The aerodynamic front end has always been an eyesore with rigs for me. I much prefer the Peterbilt flat nose oldschool aesthetic of the first 3 Primes. Looks tougher.

Like i said before....looks like once again the autobots best defensive/offensive weapons in alt mode are super shiny paint jobs. :roll:

I'll stop bithching about this now. I'v said my peace....as flawed as some may think it is.

I'm with Sabrblade with this: needs more red,, less blue.

Prefer the old Peterbuilt than this, but hey, if this is final, I guess I'll deal with it. Kinda stopped caring about the movie lines anyway. >:oP
