Daaaaaaaaaaaaayum. That's good. ROTF Optimus might finally have been outclassed.

Looks great but I'm curious how different to the already awesome RotF mold it is. The most noticable thing I can see is the lower arms and hands. Wonder how it transforms.

His hands are scary.

Essentially, by using parts of the front of the truck to form his lower chest, they've improved the proportions and given him NON-FAUX HEADLIGHTS. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the headlights look to be real!

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

Is it wrong for me to say that I don't like the looks of this figure? 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 hate to be the guy to rain on everyone's parade, but ...

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!).

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!

There's something about him that feels off.

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:

Or 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.

:APPLAUSE: ;)^

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).

I like the placement of the wheels on the thighs. Always bugged me about the RotF mold that it had two wheels just hanging from the hips kinda messily. And I like that the lower arms don't have panels obscuring the hands from the outer angle the RotF figure does. And I'll probably like that it probably doesn't say his own name a million times as you transform it? :P

There are parts that are great and parts that are a little off. The abdomen seems a little less well-proportioned, but the paint and legs are top notch. The sword looks sick too.

I look at that and just can't help but think it's the ROTF Leader mold retooled. It's too similar to avoid tricking my brain into thinking it's anything other than the ROTF Leader mold at a base. Better pics would help, so I'll look forward to seeing more.

Hasbro has unveiled MPM4 Masterpiece Movie Optimus Prime and have now sent us the official stock images along with a description of the product. From previous leaks we know that this toy will be available as a Toysrus Exclusive in the US for a hundred dollars. There are a few discrepencies between the stock images and the reveal, as well as the box art, with the gun being left unpainted in a stock image. We also include an image of the ROTF leader for you to see how it is similar and different.

Back looks mistransformed on that stock photo cos those red bits be hanging down. And they haven't pulled out the smokestacks on the truck pic. tsk...

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