Starscream's gallery now includes images of the packaged toy, new jet mode pictures, and battle pictures with Optimus Prime. Check out Starscream's gallery by clicking here.

I picked one up to make some real battle damage. It feels weird to intentionally damage such a great, expensive TF, but it's kinda fun. *finds pliers and blowtorch, gets medieval on OP*

It's not called "Battle Hooks Optimus Prime" it's just "Optimus Prime". "Battle Hooks" was a fan-coined name based on the name of his hook weapons. It's not the figure's official name.

I totally agree about it not being his "official" name, but I don't see anything wrong with using the fan-coined name in this case. Worked for Seekers and Gestalts :)

Both of which were later canonized and made official, whereas "Battle Hooks Optimus Prime" has not been.

Great detailed figure pics as usual!

They sure bring back memories of that awesome scene where Optimus whipped out his gold plastic hinged batons to beat up on Starscream "Kick-Ass" style for spraypainting half his face black!

Those damned Decepticon graffiti artists and their vandalism.

;)

Wow, it's been all this time and I didn't realize that half his face is seared off. Yikes.

What is the official name? HFTD OP rather than RoTF OP? Either way, would it be better if we called this figure "Burned Face Prime"...even though it is not canon?

Yet.
It might happen. So what, the point is we all know which version we're talking about.

I was thinking it was more like a birthmark than damage.

Since we're talking official names, it's plain "Optimus Prime". Early listings had the name "Forest Battle Optimus Prime" if I remember correctly. The Voyager is still called "Battle Blade Optimus Prime".

by the by, Seibs, it's worth mentioning that the Japanese Voyager has the hooks instead of the blades (despite retaining the "blade" in the name), since TakaraTomy isn't gonna release the Leader. Any luck on tracking him down for a gallery?
