Looks like a nice toy for the kiddies... Looks like a major regret if I were to buy it, though...especially at $80-90.

jeez. i cant even sit through the whole video. what a piece of crap. im mean come on, for 90 bucks all we get is recorded sounds of little kids making explosion noises with thier mouths. and thanks again for 'I AM OPTIMUS PRIME'. he sounds like an idiot just learning how to speak. this is just gettin sickening. thanks again for the crappy ass figures. and now i cant even find classics stuff, the stuff i really want cuz the shelves are just plastered with this crap. im almost ashamed that i want leader class ironhide but he looks pretty cool. the human alliance wreckers look pretty cool too but thats about it for me. the ultimata optimus had better look awesome in the movie at least cuz the toy looks like hot garbage.

Agreed.

I still think we need a HA Prime.


Yeah I suppose.With that kind of price tag you expect him to be bigger than Ultimate BB >.<...As for the HA Prime...Chances are we wont get one cause of the size issue and what-not.

On topic...Damn this guy look worse than Kre-O Optimus in BOTH mode !!! Here's some cons I saw atleast from the video :-

1) The trailer is FAR from the truck...It's supposed to be closer.
2) 80-90$ for an Optimus that doesnt even look close like the CGI!? Seriously the robot mode looks far worse than the first Movie Voyager >.>...
3) HUGE monkey-like arms...
4) Small for a 80-90$ price tag...
5) Damn simplistic transformation...
6) The trailer is pretty much useless in alt mode...

And I got all that just from watching the Transformation video...Imagine if I were going to check the first video...The cons will pile up so much that it will make people who buy this piece of crap feels like a piece of crap...

Can I dream along with you? Not to sound cynical, but cash and time spent designing this figure could've gone into a HA prime. With Peter Cullen and David Kaye as human partners thrown in.

I don't like this figure, but I'm interested. I'll pick him up if I manage to get a hefty discount; in M'sia, this thing would probably go for $100.

Come on guys !

When Takara anounced Voyager OP with trailer, everybody complained that the toy was a crap because the trailer was a useless weapons-cabinet in robot-mode.

Now that Hasbro releases Ultimate Prime with a trailer that actually transforms into something (battle armor + wings),
the toy is a crap because the trailer is useless in vehicle-mode (i.e. other TFs cannot be transported inside).

So, what do you guys want ? I am myself reasonably satisfied with both Takara's Jetwing OP and Hasbro's Ultimate OP besides the imperfections. After all, any design is constrained by trade-offs.

By the way, is Ultimate Prime painted in silver or is it just bare gray plastic ? What about the trailer paint-apps ?

Absolutely. Peaugh probably gets more hits from this site, than most anywhere else. Heck he even gets the odd add planted in front of his reviews.

Like some of you, I'm trying really hard to like it but...it's just so hard. I was all "It can be a new Omega Prime!"...but... the regular Prime just looks so lame. Maybe if you could substitute a better Prime like the HFTD Voyager or something, but I'm almost certain Hasbro wouldn't put that much thought into it. I would probably buy this if it costed maybe $60, but $80-$90 is just too much.

I definately pay this much or around for a HA Prime, especially if it came with a trailer.

You did it Hasbro! You finally did it! You 100% RUINED Optimus Prime! The new voyager was close with its heat shield panels and giant gas tanks, and the Battle Blades repaint with the night sky all over it, but this takes the cake. This is a complete joke. I haven't even seen anything like the combined mode here in the previews. What we've seen from the movie looked like the TakaraTOMY leader Jetwing Prime.

These are the times where I think Hasbro is better off leaving Transformers to TOMY in Europe and North America.

I completely agree. I am not sure what to think.

If the trailer does this in the movie, it may tip the boat.

Baaaaaaaaaaaaw!

They did the best they could. Getting a trailer to transform into a screen-accurate jetpack is impossible. Jetwing is for the jetpack, this is more for the trailer.

That's a matter of scale. If you want a Leader OP that is in a reasonable scale with Leader Sentinel Prime and the new DOTM Voyager Ironhide in both vehicle and robot modes, DOTM Ultimate OP is the best choice:

In both modes he is smaller than Sentinel Prime without the trailer, and bigger than him with the trailer/battle suit.

Very well done Hasbro !

Of course it still has its flaws, but no TF toy is perfect. I personally think that the robot-mode is unbalanced when OP is not wearing the suit, his BFG looks horrible (2 separate weapons would be nicer) and nulls most of the articulation that is left in the combined-mode, and it seems that the trailer is not silver painted (what is inexcusable for such expensive toy).

Anyway, I can't imagine myself collecting DOTM and not getting him.

I think that's a good job for 3rd-party companies. Unfortunately, most of them aren't interested yet in upgrades for movieverse toys :-(
