Also, the trailer hitch is actually where it's supposed to be, on the back. SUPER HYPED!

It looks good with the exception of the red abdomen pieces, which the Leader Class figure more-or-less got right based off the character model from the films (which my eyes keep immediately getting drawn to because they shouldn't be there), and the weird looking eyes. I understand those eyes or odd faces on the smaller retail Optimus Prime (well, I sort of understand ... I still think there's room for improvement there), but I don't understand his eyes looking weird on a high end figure intended for collectors. I love the ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime mold so it's got to really impress me to top a figure I already consider pretty close to a Masterpiece figure already, especially considering the price point and the fact that ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime is now an 8 year old toy (yikes!).

He does seem movie accurate in many parts of his body, but based on these photos, I still view the Leader Class Optimus Prime mold to be more superior in regards to his physical appearance. To me, he seems a little bit of a disappointment.
I agree, especially after how they knocked it out of the park with the MPM-3 Bumblebee figure, which is incredible looking. Maybe moreso because they haven't really been able to nail down Bumblebee in an action figure yet (maybe with the exception of the HFTD Deluxe Bumblebee or the DOTM Deluxe Bumblebee), whereas Optimus Prime has the amazing Leader Class figure.

I dont have them all. I have Drift and he doesnt cheat.
And the point was not to compare him with the rest of AOE but to compare him with the ROTF mold.
In that comparison we definitely care because you are comparing a toy that cheats to one that doesnt. A fake chest to a real one.
I agree about Evolution Prime. Cool toy, but doesn't hold a candle to ROTF Leader Optimus.

When it comes to women and Transformers, I prefer them to be real!

I understand they were going for his look in the 2007 Movie - Revenge of the Fallen. And not the look he had in Dark of the moon with the exposed abs.
But I still find it hard to see how the MPM is better than this:
MB-11 seems to be a masterpiece of a figure already.
I'd still like to see the transformation, as it looks very very different to the Leader class mold, but, I think I may skip it.
Specially if its going to be 2 or 3 times the price I paid for MB-11

The good news is that it wont be. It will just be $30 more since MB-11 was $70 (or around that depending on the direct retailer).
However, MB 11 came with a knucke acessory, 2 hooks, 2 swords and gas tanks that combine into a giant gun while this guy doesnt seem to come with as many accessories.

I also find this toy to look off and I am really not quite sure what is so different than the ROTF leader. At first glance, it doesnt look that different (but we all thought that with MPM Bumblebee too).

Still a great looking figure but hard to decide between it and the RotF mold versions.
