Though not the original source of the images (looks like they're actually from Snapchat), Twitter user @astrotrain has shared two new angles of the recently officially revealed Voyager Optimus Prime figure from the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight live-action movie toyline. The images of the Premier Edition Autobot leader are mirrored below, and the conversation is already bubbling - join in at the Energon Pub!

Having the smokestacks be hollow looks horrible in robot mode. When you have something that prevalent and noticeable in both modes, it needs to be filled in.

So those hps really have 2 different grey plastics, thats too bad.

Paint looks better than what I previously thought though.

Also WOW, that guy is really into Taylor Swift. Reminds me of my crush on Michelle Branch back in highschool.

Hasbro seems to be having some issues lately in matching shades between two different types of plastic. Like how Wolfwire has thinner yellow plastic (shoulders and legs) in one shade while the thicker plastic used for structure (torso, pelvis, and elbows) is slightly different. Wolfwire's bicep swivel is made of two obviously different shades of yellow just like this Prime's thigh swivel.

At least they reduced the "backpack" a little on this one.

But that would mean firing the best designer of all time, Hasui, the guy who made all those amazing MP toys (from MP 10 all the way to BB, I think). He also designed movie toys, like HFTD Leader Starscream.

Yeah, designers are not to blame. Sadly they have to do what they are told within the restrictions set by whatever line they are assigned to. It's the takara/ hasbro boffins that are to blame. Moving Hasui from the MP's to movie toys was absurd.(HFTD Screamer being an exception) RiD toys was absurd.

It's kinda growing on me but ... I don't feel this screams "The Last Knight" as it looks too "Age of Extinction" to me. I guess I'm use to seeing a different look with each movie and this one doesn't seem to be doing that.

Could that be a good thing, maybe? A sign of some sort of continuity or consistency? :-?

They didnt, he went from movie toys (2007) to MPs (2011) and still kept designing every starscream ever (aside from the MP, ironically). Recently though, they moved him from MPs to RID 3 step toys.

And you thought it was absurd before.

If anyone cares, here are the Movie toys made by the same designer of MP 10 and MP Soundawve and MP Wheeljack and on and on:

Backfire (Human Alliance)/Spike Witwicky
Soundwave (Human Alliance)/Mr. Gould
Starscream (Leader class)
Barricade (Human Alliance)/Frenzy
Jazz (Human Alliance)/Captain Lennox
Bumblebee (Human Alliance)/Sam Witwicky
ROTF Sideswipe (Deluxe class)
ROTF Starscream (Voyager class)
first movie Arcee (Deluxe class)
first movie Barricade (Deluxe class)
first movie Jazz (Deluxe class)
first movie Ratchet (Voyager class)
first movie Starscream (Voyager class) (with Eric Siebenaler)

also, I just realized he designed Animated Lockdown, he really is the genius behind all my favourite toys.

They do the best they can with the movie designs. They went nuts with revenge of the fallen for making them way too complex for kids. That's why dark of the moon was very...well it was what it was. I don't mind the movie lines, they are what they are and I don't buy a movie figure unless it really speaks to me.

If you don't like movie figures just don't buy them. It's simple as that.

Bell whistles, yes, my mistake. I did know that it was Rid, just made a doozy since I knew he had done movie stuff.

My point still stands though; the designers are not to blame if a toy is bad/ too simple, etc Hasui's repertoire alone proves that.

WOW. They couldn't make a bigger step down if they tried.

This figure's looking pretty nice; as someone who doesn't even like the movie aesthetic. Really liking the shape of the head.

He's not complaining though and still finds as much pride in his work as ever.
