Following the recent news of the Age of Extinction figure solicitations, we have a small in-hand image of the seen-before Optimus Prime in truck mode, courtesy of 11-11 of ACToys. Though it is yet unclear whether this is the Voyager or Leader class figure, we can spot some differences with previous images, making it closer to the latest we saw: the shield is a very different shape, with added transparent parts; there is still some chrome, but some of the parts have been replaced with a less metallic colour. Can you spot any more? Check out the images below!

To be blunt and honest, the shield looks stupid and in fact doesn't really look like a shield at all.

I'll wait to see in hand pics of him in robot mode. However I've got a terrible feeling he's going to have a lot of back kibble.

Not bad, not bad at all. I was a little concerned about Hasbro usage of paint and by the looks of this they might not be cheap with their paint app's for this line. That truck mode looks good, imo. But I think I see a blue side window.

If this is the leader class I can only hope that the voyager will be better.

His sword looks different from the way it looked in the actual CGI picture we saw on that magazine.

After looking closer, I think these are pics of two different size class Optimus primes. Look at the shields, one is round like the CGI pics and one is a sheild gun. Either way, I'm looking forward mostly for the super coupes.

Va'al did point out that this is the other Optimus Prime toy that we saw pics of after the Leader one shown at NYCC.

These two physical copies look radically different. Just little things like the crotch armor, the weapons, the kibble. Either these are different toys, or the chrome one is a REALLY early prototype, or the stock photographers have topped their already impressive portfolio of mistransformation. We've frequently had different sized Optimuses before, so this might just be a voyager with a similar transformation. It also might be the case that we get a 'First Edition' sort of deal, with some AOE toys popping up in Thrilling 30. And then the main molds appear in a unique toyline.

Its a combination of two things: 1) Prime didnt have flames in G1 and 2) many people feel like flames aresomething that a younger, more reckless autobot would wear, like a tattoo or a piercing, and they feel that Optimus Prime would not wear aomething flashy like that. ( Have nothing against tats or piercings, its an example.)

I really hope that this is Voyager class because if it's a Leader class than Leader class is going to hell !
Not even close to quality of previous Leader class figures.

Like an Autobot symbol?

haha! good point, but that's more a badge of office, or a military branch insignia. In some continuities the Rite Of Autobrand has to be completed before a Transformer is supposed to be allowed to wear the symbol.

(or y'know, it's his gang sign)
