Courtesy of @Seibertroncom twitter follower -neurie- we have new images of some upcoming Transformers toys. We see four new and Bot Shots: G1 Ratchet, Movie Brawl, and two unknown sports cars. Next we have what is likely the Leader sized "Weaponizer" Optimus Prime that was shown at the UK Toy Fair, as it seems to match the description that was given:

Prime Weaponizers - Leader Class figures. Choose from Bumblebee or Optimus Prime who was on display, these new larger scale figures feature 4 modes of play with concealed weapons, Prime himself had a set of gattling guns which can flip out from under his hood in truck mode or mount the shoulders in robot mode. They have been simplified over previous leaders so the core audience of children can transform them more easily.


Lastly we have slightly better version of the Optimus Maximus image that was revealed last night.

Images mirrored below.

That Prime does look better than Powerizers Prime.

Could that be the leader sized "Weaponizer" Prime? I hope that dual shoulder cannon thing is detachable though.

And I instantly regret buying the powerizer Prime, as this looks much better. Oh well.

i don't quite understand why people are using the term powerizers and revealers.. aren't those names just the gimmick term? it still says deluxe and voyager on the packaging.

anyways. it seems like they always do this.. they release several different molds of the same character.. each mold does something very well.. but they can never add them all into one. for instance.. the legs on this new figure.. why couldn't they just use the RiD prime's legs? i just hope there's some way to make those wheels disappear a little.. or at least move back further.

Dear Hasblow,

Please release toys of different characters.

The red, blue and especially yellow cells in my eyes are over-strained from all the versions of Optimus and Bumblebee on both my, and toy aisle shelves. I refuse to buy additional versions of the same character, in the same deco anymore.

Thank you.

That's the Leader Class mold of Optimus. Almost impressed me until I saw the flaps sticking up on his shoulders. Reminds me of TF1 Optimus.

PASS.

I only like leader lass figures if the character in question was meant to be enormous. But this is just another case of them making a leader class prime "because Prime always sells" which is just bullshit and doesn't really work that well. Whatever it sucks and I don't care.

Weaponizer Prime doesn't look very good for a leader size figure. He just looks... off.

Bass Prime doesn't look as promising as I thought but it's too early to tell.

So now we can have an army of mini Optimus Primes, a Target Master Optimus Prime, and a Head Master Optimus Prime operate a giant Cityformer Optimus Prime? :shock:

Sounds about right. Did you know Brawl and Bonecrusher had a baby? pic proof ^

It certainly does look better than RiD voyager Optimus, but it doesn't look like it'll beat First Edition. It's got Bulkhead levels of bulk in his chest but with normal proportioned limbs. And let's give it up for a (possible) leader class figure without painted rims. :APPLAUSE:

Optimus Maximus has me intrigued but I doubt I'll bite. I know I'm probably wrong but that shot makes it look like he's got a G1 Ultra Magnus head.

Leader-class Primes are usually the most in-scale with other figures, particularly with Deluxe cars.

Well, I didn't have very high hopes based on the initial description; but that actually looks quite good. Here's hoping we get a Megatron in that size class. (Especially after seeing the initial reviews of the Powerizer Megatron.)

Dangnabbit, I was going make a comment about Deep Desert Brawl, but now you got me thinking it's a hate-filled love-child of two of the Cons from TF1.


...And now I want it to actually be a bouncing baby Bonebrawler.

I'm anxiously awaiting pictures of Optimus Maximus in alt-mode. The sooner I see it the sooner I can be crushed because it sucks, and the healing process can begin.

(I've been wanting a new, real baseformer for a very long time. The best we've had since the end of G1 was Cybertron Metroplex, who pointedly did not actually transform into any kind of base whatsoever.)
