Thanks to the official Hot Toys website we have new images of their first ever Transformers franchise figure, Optimus Prime (Starscream Version). This highly detailed version of G1 Optimus Prime comes with wings and Null Rays from a defeated Starscream that can be attached to Prime. He also comes with his iconic Ion Blaster and The Matrix of Leadership, though it's unclear if the Matrix is actually removable. He stands approximately 12 inches tall and comes with a rocky display base Autobot symbol. Like most Hot Toys offerings he comes with a steep price tag, $344.99. Check out the new official images mirrored below:

Still don't get it, and the price tag is just plain shocking.

This is garish, pretty damned grotesque and a complete waste of money. I just... Why? What is the POINT of this? This doesn't really homage anything. It's an overpriced non-transforming toy that makes a mockery of both Optimus and Starscream. =; =;

Not homage but great for Halloween! Optimus loses his moral center and goes kill crazy! Someone should buy both versions and have him wear all those Decepticon corpses/cannons. How awesomely macabre would it be?! 3rd partiers should custom some dead Decepticon heads for him to hold, Wheee!!! ;;)

Well, since Halloween is my least-favorite holiday of the year... no.

See, if Prime had taken this approach to start with, the war would have been over pretty quickly.

This looks pretty awesome. I like a Prime who's prepared to kick some ass. Hence why the movies are so awesome.

The lovely folks at IZ Reloaded were recently in Singapore for SGTCC, and took a good look at the exhibited full colour version of the upcoming Hot Toys licensed G1 Optimus Prime (Starscream version) - check out the clip they sent us below!

Spotted at Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention 2014 (STGCC 2014), is this Hot Toys Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) Collectible Figure from the classic and highly popular THE TRANSFORMERS GENERATION 1.

The Optimus Prime (Starscream Version) collectible figure stands approximately 30cm tall featuring a highly detailed mechanical structure and remarkable painting applications with distress effect, a pair of Starscream's wings, weapons, and a rocky ground diorama base with Autobot logo.

It both looks cool and makes no sense. :P

Is anybody else disturbed by Optimus Prime now taking trophies of his kills?

I'm just not impressed by this. Yes, HT makes some really great movie-based figures, but this Optimus Prime just doesn't make sense. Taking wings from Starscream is silly as a concept. And at that size, if he can't transform then what's the point? It's just another super-overpriced toy for people who can't say "No". I'll stick with my perfect MP01, thank you.

Yeah, this is still stupid and a total money sink. =; =; =;

I still think this is the result of some weird version of prime, taking starscream and locking him up in his creepy basement.

Cool. Now let's see the alt mode, which I assume it has, because it's a Transformer.

I own every mp takara has made including every coin and all of the variants... and seeing this figure makes it very hard not to acquire it, and i think it is because of the expected quality that hottoys is known for... U come to trust them that they are going to make a product that u r going to love. Afterall, most of the mps that i own have been preordered months or even a year in advance without even knowing what the final version is going to look like! Its insane! But i must say, i've had no regrets and im always pleasantly surprised that i did when i open the box...

I am not getting this figure, mainly because, I know its going to be awesome and it will only lead to more awesomeness and more figures as a line, seen those pictures of optimus prime megatron version yet? Im sure there is a starscream "megatron" version in the works too, in short, i have to limit what i collect now days... Ill pass on this line of awesomeness to preserve space and hold on to my money. Threezero and masterpiece transformers are an expensive hobby to have :-( having fullmetalghost on my bedstand, waiting on fullmetalghost captain form and that awesome atlas figure as well, makes me think that the 300-400 dollar figure segment is hard at work to get u hooked.. Sorry hottoys transformers, ur too late! I got my fix!

To be a good-looking display piece.

Then there is no point to this.

I still want to see someone get both this and the Megatron Prime, then combine all the weapons/parts on him and have him hold some decepticon heads in one hand.

About time Optimus got as evil as the rest of the Primes. :DANCE: :DANCE: :DANCE:
