I still really like the Takara/Argos Nightwatch Prime - so I'm not averse to that mould overall. It's a better toy than the Protoform is anyway.

I'm currently on the same state as the reviewer after this vid.

I planned to resell the WFC prime as I already have the original, but damn, it looks so damn good in this video.. I'll probably keep it.

That tribute leader prime. I wish it had the sword too, and I agree it is a great mold. I absolutely love it.

SDCC 2017 Preview Night: Transformers: Tribute 10th Anniversary Movie Leader Optimus Prime

Postby Va'al » Wed Jul 19, 2017 9:57 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
There's more! Directly from the floor at San Diego Comic Con 2017, site owner Seibertron is providing us images of the display area at the Hasbro booth - featuring so far some older reveals from existing toylines. In this post, we cover the Transformers Tribute toyline! Covering 'evolutions' in old design and new, featuring older and newer incarnations of the same character, we see the likes of Optimus Prime in his 2007 Leader class toy (but nothing on the deluxe 2pack we have already seen in stores).

These are only the initial images, of course, expect the full Seibertron.com treatment as the event continues across the weekend, with more toy images, the Hasbro Breakfast Press event Thursday morning, panel coverage on Friday and Saturday, and follow-ups with official images and more!

Looking forward to see clearer images of that '07 Optimus. I don't think he'll be prettier than the stellar Premium version though.

Pictorial Review of Transformers Tribute Orion Pax / Optimus Prime Set

Postby Va'al » Tue Jul 25, 2017 9:41 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
While we do have a video review for this set - from the Transformers Tribute toyline - fellow Seibertronian ExciKaiser has been nice enough to acquire a set and provide a pictorial review of the two versions of Orion Pax / Optimus Prime, both reusing previous molds, but only one with some changed details! Find out more below.

ExciKaiser wrote:Mailman just delivered them :

Not sure if the box picture is still necessary as everybody has saw it, but..

The Two guys together.

It's really a strange set. One of the most detailled and complex Generation Deluxe, with ... ok not the worse, but at least the most simplistic looking and less detailled of TR line.
They don't match at all.

Time for comparison with their counterparts :

VS T30th Orion Pax :

So in the end ?

I initially planned to resell the WFC Prime as I already had the original.
Except now I have it, I think I'll keep it. I can't choose which one is the best. I like the more vivid colors, as well as the neon blue instead of neon pink.
It's the same conflict as between the orginal Supercon armada Prime and the Galaxy force vivid repaint.

For Orion Pax, I decided to prefer him to Kup because of the head before even buying it.
Now I got it, I'm a bit deceived by this head (the T30th was more detailled aven if smaller), but it's still far better from the Kup's one.
The plastic remains the same, whic means this strans porous-looking cheap plastic. Strange considering the WFC got the same high grade plastic as the first release.
And he is as floppy as Kup..

Oh and if you need one more reason to prefer Orion instead of Kup :

I think the Prime definitely looks better than the original release. The Pax just looks awful to me. No redeeming features whatsoever.

I think I'm tempted to buy it if cheap just to have a look at how the Prime transforms as I've not played with that mold and am curious and dunno if I'd keep it or sell it on. I'd just sell the Pax right away.

In fact, that's it, since my post/review, the new one replaced the original on my shelves.

He is correct compared to other titans return.
Not the best, but correct.

Putting him on the same box was really unfair. Even the FOC prime for the same era would look bad next to the WFC.

Yeah the newer one just has better contrast with that bolder red and darker grey particularly on the chest. That appeals to me much more.

I don't really like the Kup figure as is though the Takara one fixes a lot of the issues I have with it such as the arms.

Of all the things that were chosen from the cartoon model of Orion Pax to incorporate into this figure, it was the cartoon model's kissy lips.

Times like this do make me miss Fun Pub and the Ask Vector Prime segments. This two pack is a continuity curiosity, and I would love to be able to get an official answer on which fiction these figures are intended to belong to. My collection display depends on it! :-(
