Optimus prime done as a bullet train alone could've been fantastic. Alas with the need to incorporate a 2-way combination method and the dragon mode really muddies things up with kibbl;e with nowhere to go in robot mode.

The combined forms are named:
* DaiKenzan (Kenzan on top, Optimus in the middle, Gekisoumaru as the legs)
* DaiGekisou (Gekisoumaru on top, Optimus in the middle, Kenzan as the legs)

could have been awesome. optimus should never have to combine with anything. and he should never be a dragon.

Aside from the 'kabuto"/shield accessory (which keeps on falling off in my Samurai and Shinobi team).....he's simply amazing :DANCE:

Noticed that his transform structure (to warrior mode) reminds me of Starconvoy and the double blade staff like that of Gungnir in Valkyrie Profile 2..

Still looks like a mess. Like movie Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime, Drago from Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad, and one of the RiD bullet train brothers had an orgy and this was the result.

Lets see whats wrong with this figure
Robot Mode: passable The chest look like its ugly and mis-transformed with a kibbletastic crouch flap. swords look cool but as always the kabuto "gun" look so ugly I fell my eyes burning
Train Mode: OK I guess still don't see why them made him a train but wait you say its for his a DRAGON MODE to which I say
Dragon Mode: THAT'S A DRAGON!! it looks like someone took a cool looking dragons head and glue it to a pile of kibble one of the WORST! alt modes I've see even for a triple changer
Combine Mode: ..... ARE YOU ******* KIDDING ME YOU GO THOUGHT ALL THE TROUBLE OF ADDING A FOURTH MODE AND YOU MAKE HIM THE ***** OF THE COMBINATION

All said and done, I only think the dragonmode is crappy. The train is o.k. and I like the robotmode. If this would be priced as a regular voyager, I might have gotten it. It's probably going to be expensive and automatically a no-no for the wallet.

And the train is phallic.

Law of averages finally caught up to them. It stands to reason that after Takara doing so many versions that rocked and having their painted versions make all of Hasbros stuff look like crap, sooner or later they'd come out with something that almost the entire fandom would universally agree on as being horrid.

This most definitely qualifies as horrid.
I was hoping that maybe it was just the magazine scans not being quite clear and that maybe this wouldn't be so bad in regular pics.
It really IS that friggin' bad!

I have to give credit to TakaraTomy for attempting such an ambitious figure. The robot mode looks better to be now that pieces sticking out the arms are covers, and the weapons are big like they should be. The dragon mode... I can see why people groan a lot over this, but think of this: European/Western dragons vs. Asian/Eastern dragons. European dragons look like Dinosaurs with wings and are usually evil, Asian dragons are more serpentine in nature (down to missing the hind limbs at times), and benign. Let that sink in :P O yeah, the train mode is trainy enough, down to the pantograph on top. Let's face it, he's a big long box and it works :lol:
The combined modes of DaiKenzan and DaiGekisou are a hit and a miss, respectively. DaiGekisou just has too much going on here, while DaiKenzan is borderlining it. I like their Kabutos though, and the new mane for the lion reminds me of Great Exkaiser.

For a failed figure, just like the commanders of the Samurai and Shinobi teams, are all sold out in Japanese online shops.

Good luck finding those other figs if you plan to go for the "wonky" supermode.

The Beasthunter winged Optimus is still available.

I agree, eventhough Armada Prime's combo is great. The leaders shouldn't do combiner stuff imho. Same goes for Megatron.

Still the official images don't look half bad :HEADHURTS: :HEADHURTS:

Still nobody has commented on the fact that in a reversal of the norm Prime is the Magic Mushroom this time around?

This is probably awesome to Japanese consumers, but to me, this is just crap. I agree that had this just been a Prime that transforms into a train it could have been kinda cool. I haven't seen anything unique to Transformers Go! that I like. But then again, I am not a big fan of many of the Japanese designs.

Courtesy of TF Yuki we have some new images of Takara Tomy's upcoming Transformers Go! G26 Optimus Exprime. The version of Optimus Prime sports three modes: robot, bullet train, and dragon - plus he has the ability to combine with G01 Kenzan and G05 Gekisomaru. Check him out below!

At first I thought "Wow this thing suddenly looks badass and not shit!"

But then I realized it was Voyager Beast Hunters Optimus with one of the EX Prime part things.

Based on what I can see of the phrasing, it's done like this:

Optimus EX Prime

I've suspected that it would be like "OPTIMUS EXPRIME", but I wanna see it for real.

The 4th picture reminds me of the unification move in the sentai series where all five pulls out a BFG outta nowhere to sheet the main bad guy. The new Prime is equally awesome!

At first I was like "Huh?" but now I see what you mean.

The pic is actually supposed to represent the ancient Sword Master Go Prime passing on that Kabuto to Hunter Optimus Prime, as a sign of Optimus's worthiness. 8)

Virtually all of the exclusive 'Go!' moulds are awful and this is no exception. However I will forgiven them a little as (Beast Hunters) Nemesis Prime is awesome.

TF Yuki tweeted some new images of Takara Tomy's soon to be released Transformers Go! G26 Optimus Exprime combined with G01 Kenzan and G05 Gekisomaru. In addition to these combined modes, the figure can also transform into a bullet train, dragon and robot. Check out Daikenzan and Daigekisou mirrored below:
