And after some Takara Tomy exclusives in their package, why not take a look at another, this time out of its plastic prison? Thanks to Seibertron.com user chuckdawg1999 Movie Advanced, we have a video review of the EZ Collection Anniversary Exclusive Clear Optimus Prime - one of many repaints of Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime. Check it out below!

Done in a smokey clear red and black Takara has decided to re-release Prime once again as a store exclusive for the movie line. If you like the mold you probably already have it.

That magnet is for interaction with Chomp & Stomp Grimlock and Battle Command Optimus Prime, as mentioned several times before.

Yeah it's on all the one step and power battler figures. It's to unlock weapons in the stomp and chomp Grimlock. Problem is the larger Grimlock comes with an Optimus Prime figure with magnets in both it's feet making the other figures pointless.

Battle Command too? This is the first I'm hearing of that.

Courtesy of the HKGTF Facebook page, we get out first prototype glimpse of the Takara Tomy Movie Advanced Line AD31 Leader Class Armored Knight Optimus Prime, showing off which parts will be modified from AD01 for the release, including head, arms, chest and feet. We can also report that the figure will feature new weapons, and the new head will allow a mask/unmask gimmick without. Check out the mirrored image below!

So the backpack remains intact? Ok... *hides in her fan rage-proof bunker*

Oh snap, this could be the first movie-accurate version of the Leader mold, since all other releases of it had a chest based on concept art rather than based on the movie's CGI model.

TAKARA, Y U NO REWORK BACKPACK?

...

Still, if the price is relatively reasonable and the final figure is incredible, I may buy it.

Probably to avoid the backpack being a floppy mess of hinges and panels. From what I've seen, Prime's backpack is very thin, and it would probably need completely re-engineering from scratch to get it to compress better.

Still, there's always a chance a 3rd party company might release a replacement backpack that folds up better (WITHOUT partsforming, please) like they did for ROTF Prime's hands and swords.

I'll keep waiting until they make a nice voyager version of "Knight" Optimus Prime. It's probably too much to hope for, but if they struck gold once with Battle Blades Optimus Prime, I believe they can do it again.

At this point, Battle Command Optimus Prime looks to be out best bet for that.

They basically did with a Voyager version with trailer in Japan. Entirely new mold!

If you can get over his simple transformation (basically turning him inside-out) I suppose he could work. :D

The problem with Battle Command OP is he has WAY to much leg and butt kibble. His bottom half appears to stick out like two inches behind his body. That kinda makes sense if you're using him with the trailer wings, since that adds more stability, but if you intend to show him off like he appeared in the movie without the wings, he looks kind of ridiculous.

i really can't get enthusiastic about all the optimuses. they don't measure up to rotf buster prime, and certainly not with all those different deco's. i'd rather like to see some pictures of takara's Slog

Yeah, that's the sticking point. I'd prefer much better and am willing to wait. Battle Command Optimus Prime just has way, way too much back kibble. Some is okay, understandable, but that's just...crossing the line for my tastes.
