"Yet another" ? This series has only had one other standard G1 colored Prime at this point. Year of the Snake Energon Optimus Prime
And that figure was still colored differently from the original figure, more similar to what they did with the Year of the Monkey figure. Year of the Rooster Optimus Prime is the closest they've come to a straight release that's about 98% the same as the original. The chrome seems to be of a better quality, that's the only difference I can see.

Still, the accessories and range of articulation make this figure INCREDIBLE. It really does scale well with Legion class figures and IronFactory/War in Pocket figs too. Probably gonna get this on General Principle, even tho I already have the THS Convoy that this is a remake of. I wish they would do some THS Decepticons now!
