Top 5 Best Optimus Prime Super Mode Transformers Toys

Postby william-james88 » Sat Feb 24, 2018 6:41 am

Every two weeks, Seibertron.com brings you a Top 5 list related to all things Transformers written by me, your fellow editor. These are my opinions (just like movie or game reviews hosted by sites are still just the opinion of one person) so what matters most is what you guys think of the topic or list, and I hope to see your own lists or comments on omissions and ranking. Let's have fun! All previous lists can be found here.


Top 5 Best Optimus Prime Super Mode Toys

No adversary is too great for Optimus Prime / Convoy. When everything seems bleak or when the challenge seems to tough, you can always count on him rising up to the occasion, often times in a super mode. These temporary evolved forms have been part of the franchise since the very beginning and are a mainstay of Japanese pop culture. It is always fun to see just how glorious that super mode will look like and the best part of this fiction being used to sell toys is that we do get the toys of these super modes. We even have super modes that don't even have fiction attributed to them like our first pick...

5. Transformers Dark of the Moon Ultimate Optimus Prime

This is overkill in the best way possible. I love how the trailer adds those wings flaring all about. This really looks like the very last thing you will see before being blown to bits. My only problem with this toy is how the combined form is rather immobile and how the armor is very tricky to bring back to trailer mode. Still, its super cool to see Optimus integrate with his trailer in such a symbiotic way.

4. Transformers Robots In Disguise Omega Prime (God Fire Convoy)

This is a combination of Robots in Disguise (2001) Ultra Magnus and Optimus Prime (known as God Magnus and Fire Convoy in Japan). The only issue with this toy is stability. Aside from that, awesome! The chrome just shines and that unique head sculpt is killer. I will admit that he is not simple to combine but the result is well worth it and it definitely makes up for how lackluster the Ultra Magnus component is in robot mode.

3. Transformers Cybertron Optimus Prime (Galaxy Convoy) Super Mode

I love how solid the connection of the added pieces are. The rearranging of the legs is very clever and the literal backpack is just so much fun. I love how you can have two ways to arrange the weapons as either shoulder cannons or underarm mini-guns. And he just looks so good. Of course, if you wish, this can extend to the other configurations using this mold though I much prefer the Sonic Wing mode (with Wing Saber) over the Savage Claw mode (with Leobreaker).

2. Transformers Super God Masterforce Powermaster Optimus Prime w/ Apex Armor (God Ginrai)

Thanks to reissues, both the Japan and US versions are as affordable and attainable so I am making this a general entry for this true staple of later G1 toys. For many, this was even their first Optimus and what a great way to go about it. What is truly fun about this set is the added level of just how much you want to add to Prime in both his modes. For vehicle mode, when linking his trailer you can mount his guns like you want, arming him to the teeth. You could the add and his canon. In robot mode, you do get a very small transforming Prime and his small stature just adds to the impact of how big you can make him. Not only can he become Power Master Optimus but you can also bring in his friend Godbomber for the power up to end all power ups. He just looks magnificent. While the articulation isn't there, going from a small cab into his Power Master form is a feat the newer Generations Powermaster Optimus does not do, technically removing the notion of being a super mode for Optimus. But that doesn't matter, we have the original (which stands better). And lest we forget the Fire Guts Ginrai re deco which references his ultimate super mode in the show.

1. Transformers Energon Wing Saber Optimus Prime Super Mode

Yup an Energon Autobot toy gets to be number 1 on a list, doesn't happen every day. But this is because this combination is the only thing that makes up for how lackluster both of these toys are on their own. Wingsaber (an awesome looking Star Saber homage!) doesnt even have any head articulation since it splits in half for the combined form! But what a combined for it is. It has solid latching on points and greatly improves on both articulation, which lacked for Wingsaber, and proportions, which lacked greatly for Optimus. Plus, you can actually switch the boots for the gauntlets to have two totally different looking super modes and both are as fun and bring out a different deco element while always remaining very red and blue which is so fitting to this awesome Optimus Prime Super mode. This brings back the idea of the deluxe and mega Autobots who can act as both pants and shirts for a super robot, but with better results than anything else in this line. Wingsaber was so expensive that it was actually cheaper to hunt down the Takara version but I found it well worth it in the end simply because the combination was so much better than a sum of its parts.

Honourable mentions: I wouldn't have picked any of these in a top 5 but in case you were wondering what else was out there, well you had the Arms Micron Unicron super mode toy that worked with First Edition Optimus Prime from the Prime toy line. You also had the Powerlinx Prime which used the drones that came with Energon Prime in a Voltron fashion, and you also had the multiple Armada Prime configurations, along with the Movie Jetfire combination, just to name a few. Oh and of course, Ultra Prime from Combiner Wars.

I don't have DotM Ultimate Optimus Prime, but I've got the other four. I'd personally go with this order:

4. Cybertron Optimus Prime
3. Wing Saber Optimus Prime
2. God Ginrai
1. God Fire Convoy

My problem with Cybertron Prime was that he didn't to me feel so much like he was taking a super mode, but rather becoming complete. I guess I rank combining with a second character higher than just combining with a trailer. And by that logic I would indeed place Wing Saber Optimus Prime at 1 if he was being compared to Super Ginrai and Super Fire Convoy.

Great list. I do have to say that Energon Prime would never make my number one. He's very finicky and floppy, at least on the copies I have. I just always felt disappointed with the end product. Omega Prime / God Fire Convoy would have to be my number one. That toy is just gorgeous.

I would put Omega Prime in the #1 spot, take Energon Prime out, throw it in the trash, and replace with Armada Jetfire Prime.


Other than that, no issues.

Motto: "I'm real when it's useful."
Weapon: Twin Swords
I prefer Jetwing Prime over Ultimate Prime, and my list would go as the following:

5. Powermaster Prime (would be higher if we do get an MP style version, but a nicer toy than the original nonetheless)
4. Jetwing Prime (a bit simple, but very effective, especially with the premium version)
3. RID Optimus/Omega Prime (both look fantastic, but at the cost of the joints being weak overtime)
2. Energon Optimus Wing Mode (why did we get the multi colored drones before this?
Even as a Power Rangers fan, those drones suck compared to Wing Saber's colors and design, though shame about his lack of articulation)
1. Cybertron Optimus (call me biased because he's my very first TF toy ever, but that guy is simply amazing! I don't have Wing Saber and Leobreaker, but the former looked redundant minus the swords, and the latter looked unwieldy, so Cyb. Prime is perfect as he is!)
Action Figure Wishlist:

MPM-04 Optimus Prime
Studio Series Jazz
'07 Voyager Megatron
Studio Series Brawl
DOTM Deluxe Barricade
Studio Series Blackout
'07 Deluxe Bonecrusher
Titans Return Legends Bumblebee
Music Label Soundwave
PRID Deluxe Ratchet
PRID Voyager Bulkhead
Arms Micron Breakdown
PRID Dreadwing

Working on a fan film. Support would be neat!

I've got to say, never cared for any of the movie combined modes, finicky at best so that gets punted into the heap.

I've heard so many good things about 1 and 3 but I was out of collecting at the time, so I'll keep Will's spot for those.
5. PMOP plus Apex armor, commemorative II. Strictly better than the original PMOP because of apex and I can't include other versions of the mold because those are all Ginrai.

4. Armada OP with jetfire pants and Overload shoulders. This thing is a brick but it is fun to play with none the less. Being able to give them a sorta combined vehicle mode is awesome, too! Also, first version to combine OP and JF, take that movie-verse.

3. I'll take Will's word for it.

2. Omega Prime, this is one guy I wish I still had from my original collection. Completely new take on OP at the time. Double over the shoulder cannons, huge and poseable.

1. I'll take Will's word for it.

I can't include the TR PMOP (not a super mode, it is the mode), or the legends release (not OP, it's Ginrai).

I'm not sure if this qualifies, but if it did, I'd definitely put ROTF Prime on this list. Whilst I'm not usually a fan of Bayformers, his combined mode with Jetfire makes for a really impressive display.

Motto: "Hello, Savage department. This is Randy speaking."
I think that this category of Optimus figures can be separated into 2 ways of looking at them: looks and poseability. According to those 2 qualifiers, the lists would be very different.

But, since they have to be combined (excuse the pun), here's my list:

5. Powermaster Optimus Prime w/ Apex Armor

4. RoTF Jet Convoy

3. God Fire Convoy

2. Galaxy Convoy

1. Super Fire Convoy

Honorable mention: Armada Jet Convoy

I don't know why we are discussing about an uncombined prime. The whole point of the list is to look at supermodes and him sucking on his own is not really a detriment. Instead, the fact that the combined mode removes all the faults of either toys, like adding articulation and fixing proportions, is pretty amazing to me.

Sadly that was Energon all over. Crappy toys that were dramatically improved by combining with another.

I could only come up with a top 3.

1. Cybertron Optimus Prime
2. Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime (on his own)
3. Powermaster Optimus Prime

as far as the ultimate optimus prime goes it was a good idea on paper but fell flat in reality
i dont think it should have made the list because it was lacking in so many ways, DOTM wing mode optimus prime should be No 5 instead
now if they went and did something that made a more compelling combination with movie jetfire then yeah

Ultra Prime or Optimus Maximus? Or do you consider them essentially one and the same?

They're technically Combiners. The difference is that super modes typically have a core bot that gets armored up without the core changing too much. Super Ginrai/PM Optimus Prime (the core folds up rather than maintaining the bot form) is an exception since his armor is an extension of himself (his trailer) already. Same could be said about Armada Prime, though it gets a bit complicated when he puts on his Jetfire pants.

Not really a fan of these except some fondness for the original G1 Powermaster Prime and no, not that tacky Godbomber crud. Always absolutely hated that addition. It looks horrendous. Always has. The regular PM super mode looks iconic and memorable. The Godbomber just covers it all with a bland design and overly-chromey stuff that takes away every bit of character from the toy and gives it silly-looking wings.

I kinda like the DotM Prime supermode but not really as something that's supposed to be practical and mobile but more something just pretty and symbolic on the shelf.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot).
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

The only issue with this list is the fact that we didn't really got more than what is inside.

What are the leftovers ?

- Armada Optimus
- Animated Wingblade optimus
- rotf Optimus + jetfire
- Potp Primal (not yet released)
- Legends Ginrai + Godbomber


And these ones I'm not even sure they count :

- Potp Orion to Optimus ?
- Deluxe Energon Prime (more a combiner ?)
- Go! eXPrime (again, more a combiner..)
Not english-native speaker. Thank you for being cool on my typos.

Jetfire pants are the best kind of pants. You can lounge at home or fly to the store and back in total comfort. Image

Anyway, I have to agree with Will, Energon Prime's combinations with Wing Saber improve him 500%.

I actually managed to track down a Sonokong release of Wing Saber for quite cheap many many years ago. The fact it had the better paint job from Takara was an added bonus.


As to Cybertron Prime, I think his combination with Wing Saber is much better that his combination with his own trailer. Massive rail guns notwithstanding.

His Savage Claw mode however, quite weak, and could not really be used with Wing Saber, though it could be used with his trailer.
Image

There's also Energon Prime's Omega Supreme cosplay mode. But that one is much less effective. Even the helmet is too small to look decent on Omega's body.

I would have replaced the RiD Magnus super mode with Armada's TOWER OF DEATH. The Jetfire, Optimus, and Overload stack is much more powerful looking and more fun to build up. The RiD one look just okay and is stable like a house of cards. The tower of death is mighty impressive and intimidating.

Image

As for #1, 2, and 3, I love them all so much that I cannot place them in order. God Ginrai is my #1 G1 toy, Cybertron is the first Optimus toy I bought since my childhood's G1, and Energon/Wingsaber just rock his "shoulder canons" mode.

Also, glad to see DotM Ultimate Optimus getting some love.

DOTM Ultimate Optimus Prime kinda bothers me. The mediocre at best individual robot mode combined with the brickish super mode really kinda sucks, though I will say the super mode does at least look cool. I'd be tempted to replace it with the Jetfire/Optimus Prime combination from ROTF, or maybe even RID Prime's standalone super mode.

That aside though, awesome list. It has to be said, whilst on his own he's a rather tubby little thing, Energon Optimus Prime looks awesome combined with Wing Saber (and to a lesser degree with his own drones). I kinda almost want those two for that combined mode alone.

What are the leftovers ?

- Armada Optimus
- Animated Wingblade optimus
- rotf Optimus + jetfire
- Potp Primal (not yet released)
- Legends Ginrai + Godbomber


There's also Super Fire Convoy/RiD (2001) Optimus Prime's super mode

And CW Optimus Maximus, though that one presumably ranks around the same as Ultra Prime.
They race to bury everything except for what they find on the bottom.

Yyyyeeeesssss!!!!
My number one would be RID prime since his own super mode (with just his trailer) looks awesome, then with Ultra Magnus, it gets even more epic. My number two is Cybertron Prime with Wing Saber (Well to be honest I have Sonic Bomber. That chrome looks so good). Just like RID, Prime's own super mode looks great, plus the backpack/jetpack/guns can be a gun base. The way they hide the arm away under the backpack for Savage Claw Mode was pretty nifty. SCM lacks as a toy (I thought it looked cool in the cartoon, but translation to toy just didn't cut it). But the combination with Wing Saber is just so awesome. If you have Sonic Wing Mode, plus the back pack in gun base mode, he is pretty much the heaviest armed prime ever.

Those two Prime's top my list because of overall aesthetics as Super Prime and Super Combo Prime, fire power, playability, proportions, and electronics (like diecast, it's a lost art).

Who says Cybertron Optimus can't hold his matrix with two hands?
