I'm starting to like this guy a lot more than I used to. He sure doesn't look like Prime to me but maybe he can be someone else.

Looks like he has a maniacal grin, maybe he lost it after the destruction of the Autobot base.

The yellow/red contrast on the cab screams "Quickmix" at me!

Usually any TF that looks like 1988 makes me fangasmic (PCC Leadfoot), but here it's a double-edged sword in that the vehicle mode looks like something the Ninja Turtles should be driving, and I sorta' blamed their competition for killing TF back in the day. Maybe it's the translucent green, I dunno'. Still likely to eventually pick it up.

I want to like it but I... can't. if they took off the front claws and made the panels less jagged, I would love it. The problem is, Optimus doesn't look like this in the show unless he is going to reformat.

It sort of looks like he might have a Gorilla face... but anyway he does look angry. I do like the return to a Flat faced truck.

*POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT*





I think it was hinted at the end of season two that Optimus will definitely need some "fixing." Anyhow, I really like his 'bot mode since I've been getting tired of the "anime proportions," what with the big torso and tiny legs.

He don't look too shabby, does he?

Curiosity: can anyone spot a faction symbol anywhere in the photos so far?

OK, a little better but still not very good.

Im on the fence about this one. I'd like to see some in hand pics and comparison pics though.

This looks fantastic. We finally have a jetpack voyager figure. I wonder if it comes off though? Either way, excited for how well this is looking so far.

Well, this is the first time i've ever heard you give a hasbro toy a compliment, or say that its even good.
No offence but you have been critical on nearly everything i have seen you post on.

Ugh. That looks...terrible. It's like a knock off of Animated Optimus.

I have to wonder... These toys, will they even see the light of day in the show? I'm thinking not. I'm thinking these toys are toy only and the show models will remain the same.

It's been cited several times that they reuse the CGI models to make different characters. Only a slight head change or color change is all that's needed, much like the toys. This would be a complete Optimus redesign, and I can't see them doing that and trying to keep the costs of the show down.

I have a feeling this guy is a toy only design. Which is what I'd prefer. I don't need to see the characters on the show look like something out of Mad Max.

In my world He will be Joker Prime... Seriously though, I am pretty sure the wings do not detach based on the vehicle mode... Also, when I first saw him I thought about Animated Wreck-Gar for some reason and how this would have made a great Motormaster during Botcon 2011...
